Both of CrossFit StumpTown's head trainers—owner Tony Edgerton and coach Joon Howard—played college basketball, so it's fair to say that they know competitive athletics inside and out. This gives them a leg up in terms of teaching CrossFit, a fitness program that pushes participants to explore and surpass their limits. CrossFit is specifically designed to boost strength, quickness, and endurance; together, this trio constitutes power, an asset in sports ranging from basketball to basket weaving.
However, CrossFit is more than sports training. It also prepares participants for everyday challenges, like picking up a kid or helping a friend move without pulling a muscle. Perhaps best of all, it changes daily to prevent workout ennui—hence the ubiquitous CrossFit acronym W.O.D., which means "Workout of the Day." Some days, the emphasis is on pullups and squats; other days, it's on kettlebell swings and lunges.
