Friday: Devotion, Outside the Box edition

The first week of April’s Feel the Love Month has been Devotion Week and we’ve been exploring many different ways that CrossFit and fitness training help us reach our goals.

We started off with the new Goal Board  [which has filled up with SO MANY goals I’m all sorts of proud!] and followed it up with helping every Volt & Vixen raise their nutrition game with the Paleo Plan eBook [if for any reason you did NOT get this in your email please shoot katie@crossfithighvoltage.com a message]. Yesterday we put the spotlight on our Firebreathers and their devotion to their fitness goals…

And today we’re taking the Devotion theme to a couple Volts & Vixens who are using their fitness training to help them do some amazing thing OUTSIDE the box.

First up we have Sarah Berry aka our Most Improved CrossFitter of 2013. Sarah is not tries super hard at every training session she comes to whether it’s for our CrossFit Classes or when she was in the World’s Best Boot Camp…she also uses her fitness to get the most out of her first passion – equestrian which is the sport of horseback riding! Her training at High Voltage helps keep her fit to ride all day & have a blast doing it! Check out the super awesome photos of Sarah!

Next up – we’re gonna get high…no…higher…ok – we’re turning this thing up to 11 and we’re talking Bob Thompson!

Bob regularly crushes his training at the box…does some super legit goat work after class where he brings in his ice-picks & climbs all over stuff with them drags the sled around the block to simulate the grind that he’ll be in for in low oxygen…and then he uses all that fitness to regularly hike the highest peaks in the US & World.

We’re always super proud of each Volt & Vixen when they use their fitness training to improve their overall lives – so show Sarah & Bob some love in the comments!
