Greg Amundson has worn many hats in his career of service: Sheriff, SWAT officer, DEA Agent, U.S. Army Captain. His goal was to live the “Warrior” life, which per his definition was one devoted to serving others. That personal mission led him into what was the very first CrossFit gym in the world, many years before it would become the phenomenon it is today.

Videos of Amundson training would ultimately go viral and help drive the fitness movement. A long time coach, we talk with Amundson about his philosophy and how a mind/body/soul approach to sport is the only way to attain top levels of performance in sport and life.
