CFSBK’s Adaptive Athlete Class Kicks Off
By Katie Harper
When I first got into physical therapy school, I knew it was a start. I knew I wanted to help people and that I enjoyed physical fitness. Then I found CrossFit. I could see the lines; it was just about figuring out how to blend them.
In physical therapy school, I met Kelly Starrett, and he gave me one bit of advice I will never forget: “Just start coaching, and you will figure it out.” So I did just that. At my Level 1 seminar, I met some amazing people involved with Crossroads. That weekend in 2013, I made a long term goal to start my very own adaptive class.
But first, I learned the basics. For 4 years, I coached in tandem while earning my DPT degree and working a full-time physical therapy job. In 2018, I quit my full time physical therapy job to learn to become a better coach, to blend the best of both worlds.
I registered for the Adaptive Training Academy course, digested the material and realized I was finally ready to make my goal a reality. Thank you to Dr. Theresa Larson for encouraging me to get this going!
This week we kicked off our Adaptive Athlete program! I absolutely can’t wait to see this community grow. These are the reasons why I spent countless hours in the library and why I spend so much time in the gym learning the art of movement. This is the stuff that lights my fire. Thank you so much for coming, Ruchir!
