Today we are happy to bring to you a conversation we had with Aimee Lyons, Kyle’s Crossfit coach and the owner of CrossFit King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. Aimee talks to us about the importance of functional fitness – a fitness program designed to enhance our ability. This is the root of her goal as a physical trainer, and it’s essential to those of us with physical disabilities. Maintaining our functionality is key to us living longer and healthier lives – as is the case for everyone!
Aimee also talks to us about the importance of nutrition, and Sean brags that a couple years ago he cut vegetables out of his diet and has never been happier. But he was joking. I think.
Thanks to Aimee for building a community devoted to living healthier and for being so passionate in what you do. You’ll see Kyle at your gym soon!
