Jake is a competitive functional fitness athlete who came to us with goals of achieving his best performance possible in the 2016 CrossFit Games Open while maintaining as much of his hard earned strength as possible. After Jake's initial assessment period we determined that his ability to perform workouts with high volume gymnastics was a big limiter for him. In order to place well in the CrossFit Open you must be able to perform high volume gymnastics so we have been progressively increasing his gymnastics volume and density to prepare him for the CrossFit Open while maintaining his strength levels in the barbell lifts. 

Being a coach myself it is tough to trust my training to someone else, but working with Coach Binford at Rockwood Athlete has been a great decision, I only wish I would have done it sooner. His testing phase was extremely thorough, and communication was phenomenal, I didn’t feel like I was being coached online at all. As a coach and athlete, the thing I appreciate most about Coach Binford’s programming was that everything was intentional. He had a method and reason for every exercise he programmed and they produced results. I have been doing CrossFit for 3 years now and have never felt more confident or in better shape. Thank you!
