The COVID-19 pandemic sparked newfound activism for fitness and health policy in CrossFit trainer, Games athlete and CrossFit NCR co-owner Pete Shaw, as he saw data emerging that he thought health officials needed to take more seriously to protect peoples’ health and allow fitness businesses to safely be open to help rather than be closed.

Scott Switzer isn’t your average fitness buff. He discovered CrossFit late in life thanks to a health scare and a healthy dose of fate, and transformed his life. But the transformation was more than physical. His soul was forever changed. Now he’s paying it forward. He’s a husband and father, a dedicated athlete, a coach, a staple as a volunteer at CrossFit competitions small and large around the country, co-host of 2 fitness podcasts, and working on more ventures in the space that have the potential to allow him to make a shift in his career to be all-fitness, all the time.

Hopefully, we’ve all had at least one coach in our lives that has inspired us. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few in my years and CrossFit Trainer Mike Milloy, one of the first coaches I had when I started CrossFit, is a coach that inspired not just my fitness journey but also helped motivate me to become a coach myself. In this episode, we talk about what got Mike started, what inspires him, and some of his favourite memories leading from the front of a class.

The shutdown that closed most gyms around the world during the pandemic was a significant disruption for gym owners, coaches and athletes alike. The process of planning how to safely reopen once health and safety officials would allow it was a challenge no gym has ever before faced, but Dave Rafuse and Jason Davis of Blended Athletics started planning their return to their physical space on day one of the shutdown. We talk about how they planned and implemented health protocols and how they were able to get their membership to embrace the new normal of coached group classes during the pandemic.
