This week we are excited to have CrossFit Seminar staff and co-owner of CrossFit Verve, Courtney Shepherd, on the podcast! This gal is spunky and hilarious, and most of all loves her some CrossFit. Courtney gives us the inside scoop on her journey from firefighter to affiliate owner, and confirms what Joy and Claire already suspected–that the best part of being on CF Seminar staff is all the free shirts. Ok, maybe not the best thing, buuut it’s pretty close. We also talk about coaching styles, finding a balance between correcting athletes but not overwhelming them, the importance of mental tenacity, and the best piece of advice Courtney has ever received as an athlete.
