When you hear the word CrossFit, what do you think? For many that word makes them think of crazy people, but Sean LeFloch is here to share why that’s simply not true. No matter the workout you’re doing, you have to use your body in different ways to get maximum results and that is what he helps you to do.
Sean digs deeper into the origins of CrossFit and why it is so popular today. One of the most cited reasons is the community that has been built up. When you suffer through something with another person, the bond you build is unbreakable. The CrossFit community is tight knit and he truly believes that it’s that element of suffering that has brought people together.
If your gym is still closed, there are things you can do at home. Don’t worry if you don’t have weights or equipment, some of the most highly fit athletes in the world do body weight exercises almost exclusively. Think about gymnasts.
Listen as Sean shares his top exercises to do at home and how you can tailor them to fit your surroundings and lifestyle. Being able to work out in a gym is very important but in the meantime, not letting your workout regimen slip is imperative.
Sean also digs into nutrition and how you can make small changes that drastically impact your health. He doesn’t believe in saying you can or cannot eat certain things, instead he tells you just to make sure you eat certain portions for each meal.
This was an amazing discussion with so much great information shared. If you’ve been struggling with at-home fitness, then take a minute and let Sean help you get back on track.

How do you do it? How do you avoid sweets, grains, and all the junk that’s out there. The answer, while simple, is not accomplished in a very easy manner, but the reward is amazing. The same can be said of how you approach the food that you eat. I don’t have to avoid eating cake because I have changed my identity in that I just don’t eat cake. If someone offers it, I can easily avoid it because cake is not something that is in my diet and it’s not something that makes me feel good.
