Dominic James, Get CrossFit’s owner, has more than 25 years of experience in competitions and health-club management. A CrossFit Level 1–certified coach, Dominic gets most of his motivation from the satisfaction of helping people achieve their fitness goals. To do this, he employs CrossFit’s philosophy of constantly varied training for functional fitness. Each workout, known as the Workout of the Day (WOD), blends exercises from across disciplines, including strength training, cardio, gymnastics, and resistance training. One day the workout might call for athletes to do handstand pushups and kettlebell swings, and the next day it might have them doing cycling, pull-ups, or dips on gymnastics rings. Each workout is designed to be universally scalable, meaning that, like Shaq’s pajamas, they can be tailored to fit anyone.
