Are your mobility limitations holding you back from some of your CrossFit goals? We have something very exciting coming up for you! Starting February 4th, our very own Ben Howe will be offering on-site private mobility and movement coaching sessions at CrossFit Forte. The number of sessions available per week will be limited, so reserve your spot now. First session will be an hour and will include comprehensive structural and flexibility assessment, tailored treatment addressing musculoskeletal pain and mobility limitations, postural retraining, planning and instruction for normalized CrossFit specific movement patterns. Shoulder, hip, ankle, back issues: fix them with treatment, retraining, and better movement! Check the calendar for open sessions here:
