Anders Varner joins us today from lowbackfix.com. Anders is a former affiliate owner of CrossFit Pacific Beach in San Diego, California. He is a certified functional strength coach, has a level two certification, and is the author of 2 eBooks and hundreds of articles. He recently sold his gym and is working on two new projects which include The Low Back Fix and Adaptive Athletes.
Today we reminisce about the good old days of CrossFit back in San Diego, and how he got his start with CrossFit. We also talk about his new project, The Low Back Fix, which is an online platform that combines physical therapy and strength training to fix low back pain.
The other new project Anders is involved with is the CrossFit Adaptive Athletes Course. This course focuses on a segment of the population which is often overlooked. Anders helps teach others how to coach and approach these athletes and how best we can help them.
Be sure to join Anders Nov. 19th & 20th in San Diego and Dec. 3rd & 4th in Denver for his Adaptive Athlete Course!
