Ep. 42: Tori Dyson-Training to be the Best in the World

We got to stand up and have a great conversation with Tori Dyson.  Tori is a CrossFit athlete that is training out of CrossFit New England.  If you're new to CrossFit (as we are/were) then you should know CrossFit New England is one of the top boxes in the country.  They have some of the best and fittest athletes in the country and Tori is no exception.

Starting out as a life long gymnast that found her way into CrossFit early in college and she hasn't turned back.  She has competed at the highest levels of team competition and now is making the jump to individual and already showing signs of being a force to recon with.  We had a great time hearing about the levels that it takes to achieve the goals she has set.  Great episode and we learned a ton.  Check it out.
