- “A long walk or better yet, a jog. Just get the system moving and flushing it out and get a really good sweat. I think that is good several times a week, is just to really shock the body a little bit and keep it primed” – Cole Barker
- “It’s not just about weightlifting or anything like that. You kind of have accountability partners. I think that is what is great about CrossFit.” – Cole Barker
- “Through all of us, If one of us aint showing up to the gym for a while, we generally reach out and say, where have you been? What’s going on?” – Cole Barker
- “Coaching has a different aspect to it because now you have people coming to you for information. But I like it in the sense that it makes you look into the programming, the movements.” – Cole Barker
- “The healthier you are, the more fit you are. We know how important mobility is and especially in hips and knees and all that stuff and to not do anything, your body kind of starts shutting down.” – Cole Barker
