With the CrossFit Open less than a month away, we get to know another CrossFit Games veteran and someone who took the CrossFit world by storm last year, Amanda Barnhart of Centerville Crossfit. We get some very good advice from Amanda about why we should all sign up for this yearly test of fitness and what she expects from this year’s 5 week qualifying event. Amanda also lets us in on what she had to give up, what she had to change, and what it took to take her from a regionals athlete to fighting it out for the title of fittest woman on earth in Madison. The episode would not be complete without Amanda sharing her current focus and what she is looking to improve on, as well as the simple things that guide her as an athlete, wife, daughter, sibling, friend, and Doctor of Physical Therapy.
