Ep. 41: Eamon Coyne-World Series of Fitness
Eamon Coyne has been in CrossFit from the early days and been a part of the constant evolution. Eamon owns CrossFit Pallas in New York and while he is a very good CrossFit coach and does a lot of work in the CrossFit Gymnastics he also does a lot on the business side of owning a box and a business. Eamon does a lot with focusing on the business side and using his skill set to help out other box owners run their set ups efficiently.
We cover a lot of topics in this conversation and they range from business to working hard to accomplish what your goals are no matter what are they are in. This was a great episode with a lot of take aways and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
