CrossFit (the methodology, and the community) holds a special place with the Integrated Recovery Foundation. It is not only a key cornerstone in the treatment program, but IRF founder and CEO Ron Gellis is a 3 time CrossFit Games Athlete.
Listen as Greg Amundson (The Original Firebreather and Integrated Recovery Foundation advocate) shares his thoughts on the topic and what we need to do about it...
Many of Dr Ron's patients have responded very well through CrossFit training not only because of the physical benefits, but getting involved in a CrossFit community after treatment is a key support function for their long-term healing and feeling of belonging.
About Dr. Gellis
Dr. Ron Gellis has been active most of his life — he played college soccer, has run 20 marathons and was an avid underwater photographer. Still, when he went to watch his son’s CrossFit workout about nine years ago, he thought his kid was crazy. But he loved the challenge and the community, joined a box and has since competed in the CrossFit Games three times.
