Each year, Reebok brings together CrossFit Games athletes at an annual summit. During this time, athletes are introduced to Reebok’s brand campaign, apparel and footwear for the upcoming year. They are able to provide feedback, get to know the Reebok team, and train and spend time with one another in a relaxed environment.
This year on the final morning in the Bahamas, I sat down to chat with 3 other female CrossFit Games athletes over the sunrise and morning coffee to discuss our experience at the Summit and more in this BONUS episode of Pursuing Health.
