“To me, the sign of a really excellent routine is one which places great demands on the athlete, yet produces progressive long-term improvement without soreness, injury or the athlete ever feeling thoroughly depleted. Any fool can create a program that is so demanding that it would virtually kill the toughest Marine or hardiest of elite athletes, but not any fool can create a tough program that produces progress without unnecessary pain.”

After having done Crossfit for 4+ years at 3 different box's, I thought that I was in the best physical shape of my life. After spending a handful of months at Crossfit Prescott under the instruction of Joey, I realized that I was sadly mistaken. The first thing that he helped me improved on was my form, this took care of some minor pain/ issues I was having with my shoulder and knee. My PR's increased across the board, some more dramatically than others (deadlift from 300 to 350; muscle-ups from 2 sets of 3, to 3 sets of 10! Just for reference, I'm 5'3”, 135 lbs.). I also saw significant gains in the sports I did apart from Crossfit; my 2 mile run time decreased by almost 3 minutes, and my 500 yard swim went from 11 min to 8 min 30 sec, and I became a stronger biker. I was able to do this despite the fact that I actually cut back my training in those specific activities. What was so remarkable about my transformation was that I attained the aforementioned goals in a relatively short amount of time (about 6 months) while training less than I had at any other Crossfit I had previously attended (other Crossfits: 5-6 days a week; Crossfit Prescott: 3-4 days a week). I attribute this to Joey's ability to apply organized programing to Crossfit through his Praxis methodology. The results speak for themselves. Even though I am now living in Oregon, I still pester Joey for advice on my workout regimes, as I am preparing to attend Special Forces Assessment and Selection for the US Army with hopes of eventually becoming a Special Forces Medical Sergeant. With his continued guidance I am sure that this is yet another goal that I will surely be able to attain. SPC. Jay Reynolds A CO, 1st/ 19th SFG WAARNG
Good AM! I have a patient I'm going to be sending to you. She is a low back patient. I am going to see her for another 2 weeks, then I'm gonna send her to you. If you can, the PT patients I send, I would like you to spend time with them because that is what I am selling.... is your knowledge of exercise and that you will not put them in situation that will reinjure themselves.
I absolutely LOVE Crossfit Prescott! I have never been this passionate about ANY workout program like I am now. In addition to being a really great workout (that is A LOT of fun), the trainers are top notch, professional and really help ensure I'm injury free while getting great results. I always hated lifting weights at the gym because (1), I had no idea what I was doing, and (2) as a female, I always felt really awkward and intimidated around all those huge, muscular men who hog all the weights and machines.
