The Good, the Bad, and the Future of Functional Fitness with James Fitzgerald – The Barbell Life 243

Last time we had James Fitzgerald on the podcast, we talked about programming for CrossFit.

This time, we talked with James about something that I’m super excited to think about – James is trying to get functional fitness into the 2028 Olympics.

We also talked about some of what he doesn’t like about CrossFit and their recent changes in direction.
