Crossfit has become a way of life for my wife and I, influencing our daily routine at home as well as when vacationing. We opened our own affiliate(CrossFit Unrestrained) in February of 2014 and love supporting our community of CrossFit athletes in achieving their fitness goals. We enjoy visiting CF boxes when travelling and getting acquainted with more of the Crossfit community when ever possible.
