Healthy Joints = Strong Performance


Dawn working her magic at last year’s Open Sectionals

Did you know that the CrossFit Games season is almost upon us?  Mike was just saying how the Norcal Masters was a great warm-up for the Open Sectionals starting in March.  How are you all warming up?  What will your edge be against all the others in your age/gender/region – besides the exceptional coaching you receive at CFO?

How about your healthy joints?  Feeling a bit sore and creaky in those hips/shoulders/ankles? Want to know how to make them feel better and stronger?  Want to make sure you are bringing your best self to the upcoming competition season?

Our resident sports chiropractor and rehab expert, Dr Aundi Mevoli, is teaming up with our mobility goddess, Coach Dawn, to bring you a series of seminars on keeping your joints happy and healthy so they can perform better in the context of CrossFit, your fitness program of choice.

Here is what they have to say:

Dawn Miller CSCS and Aundi Mevoli, DC, CCSP®, ART will be teaming up to bring you a new seminar that focuses on getting and maintaining healthy and happy joints. Each month we will take you through one (or two) joints and teach you how to mobilize and strength/stabilize the joint. This seminar will give you tools to keep your body stretched and strong to perform all of the Crossfit programing. You will gain knowledge about anatomy, biomechanics and what happens when injuries occur. 

Details? Of course!
