"I am stoked to have been able to attend this. It was the greatest affirmation of what has been cultivated in my own heart and mind, and what I have been trying to cultivate in the hearts and minds of my clients. CrossFit can and has changed fitness and the perspective of what is humanly possible, but I believe that the changes that matter are the ones we can’t see, and it made me so excited to see this message put out there so effectively. The seminar was great. The presentation so genuine. Greg, I see you just have so much love for the people around you, and that is what inspires me most of all! I am honored to know you. Thank you for leading by example."
