Ever wonder what goes on in those infamous CrossFit gyms?  Well, you’re in luck!  Eye Opener’s Zachery Lashway took us into CrossFit 215 where he is attempting to take on a 60 day CrossFit Challenge!

There are thousands of exercises to tone the average Joe but there weren’t many to train for the unknown such as military, law enforcement and first responders, so, CrossFit was created!  CrossFit is a workout technique that consists of constantly carried functional movement done at extremely high intensity, designed for the everyday person.

As owner and head coach of CrossFit 215, Micah Macbeth describes, “CrossFit is all about training for the unknown, which is done through educating and inspiring athletes.”

Watch as Zach kicks off his CrossFit challenge where he intends on earning  CrossFit ‘WINGS’ (where individual needs get stronger) and improve his overall health!

Let Zach know about your CrossFit experiences @ZachLashway.
