Show Notes: http://www.juliefoucher.com/podcast iTunes: https://goo.gl/UFjY0q | Stitcher: http://goo.gl/xKMmiR TRAIN with JF: http://btwb.com/juliefoucher Beginning his career as a trainer in 1974, Coach Greg Glassman redefined fitness with CrossFit, otherwise known as constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement. After being kicked out of several globo gyms he finally opened the first CrossFit gym in Santa Cruz, CA in 1995. Currently there are more than 12,000 affiliates worldwide, and we've witnessed the exponential growth of the CrossFit Games, the ultimate proving grounds for fitness which identifies the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth each year from a pool of hundreds of thousands of athletes across the globe. We've also witnessed incredible stories of transformation in the affiliates, with participants losing weight, gaining confidence, and ridding themselves of chronic disease. I recently sat down with Coach to discuss the role of CrossFit and the affiliates in health, his new model "The 5 Buckets of Death," and how he is working to address the burden of chronic disease in the United States and the world.
