XPO TRAINER PUSH SLED NEWS - DECEMBER 2020
Many don't know the full history behind the XPO Trainer. But this couple, Dr. Kelly & Juliet Starrett, founders of San Francisco CrossFit, were in it from the beginning.
Our first XPO Trainer (then the XPO Sled) was a hand-built prototype for CrossFit Richardson. The second was for them - Kelly, Juliet, and the community at SFCF.
"Hands down, the XPO Sled is my favorite piece of equipment in the gym. Actually, if we tracked actual athlete contact time, no other training tool would log as much time under use either...We love it.
We've been running a prototype for a year and have literally had to tell a thousand people that they cannot buy ours. If you could buy one thing in addition to a barbell, the XPO Sled would be it."
-Dr. Kelly Starrett, DPT Founder, The Ready State & Owner, San Francisco CrossFit
Over the years, the Starretts continued to offer input into the XPO's evolution and eager adopters into their community WODs. Bill and Becky Strahan, the creators of the XPO Trainer and Armored Fitness, credit the Starretts early encouragement and continuous support with the XPO Trainer's success. And as the Starretts made the tough decision to close SFCF last month, we wanted to honor them and their contributions to the CrossFit community and to us at Armored Fitness! We know great things are ahead for them!
Joshua Collins is a personal trainer in Chicago. And now, thanks to Covid, he's training out of his garage.
"I'm a laid back, brutally honest, fun, loving coach. The equipment I have speaks volumes to my style of training...no gimmicks and straight forward. The first large purchase I made was the XPO Trainer. I've had a few pro athletes try this sled out, and they said it was the best sled they've ever used. Such a simple concept and easy-to-use makes for a game-changer."
It's almost time for those New Year resolutions!
Let the XPO help you reach your 2021 goals!
