In a physical therapy practice, we see many types of injuries.  Some people want to return to pain free living and working, but others want to return to competitive athletics and/or aggressive fitness styles.  From runners to basketball players; tennis players to swimmers; and many others, the goal of physical therapy is to return to the sport they love.  In the last couple of years, crossfit has become the new competitive sport that a lot of people are joining up and doing.

Crossfit is a very strenous workout that stresses “functional movement.” It is widely thought of as an intense workout, but not many people know that there are local competitions.  Advantage PT has 2 clinics (Mercer Island, WA and Redmond, WA).  Working at the Mercer Island clinic, I see many athletes from the local Crossfit gym Mercer Island Crossfit. Recently a husband and wife team of former patients competeted at a local event called the Resolution Revolution 2. Stone Way Crossfit hosted the event for “couples” (any male/female partner).

These 2 patients were exceptional athletes, had some injuries, and became better athletes after following a program of physical therapy.  They were seen for different body parts, but the activies they do require multiple body parts.  Here are a few pictures from the event!
