FFF 065: The World Of CrossFit – More Than Puking, Pain & Paleo – with James St Leger


CrossFit often gets an undeserved bad reputation due to the infamous memes and ‘fail compilations’ on YouTube but is there any other sporting movement that has motivated so many people to start lifting weights?

In this episode Scott is joined by James St Leger who is CrossFit coach, gym owner and UK competitor. James explains why many people have the wrong idea about CrossFit, how you can spot good coaches from the bad, how he structures his workouts, the hardest workout he’s ever done, how his training has changed since he started Crossfit, the things he does to recover from intense workouts, his thoughts on improving the image of the sport and lots more.

Scott is the owner and founder of Food For Fitness. He is a fat loss coach, speaker and fitness writer with a masters (MSc) degree in Applied Sports Nutrition.
