"After 23 years of chasing my "peak optimization" it's hard to find new things that make a substantial difference. My deep REM sleep has improved 27% over the past 13 months of nightly CBD treatments AKA I just found something that increases my recovery by 27%!! Go America!
PS: it's not very manly, but I take a bath almost every single night in the CBD bath soak and I'm addicted. "
Professional AthleteOver the past few years, Hunter McIntyre has not only become the most decorated male obstacle course racer (OCR) in history, but also one of the most charismatic and recognizable figures in all of sports. With his distinctive mop of red hair flowing behind him as he scales walls, tiptoes along beams, and crawls under barbed wire, Hunter has overcome everything in his path – literally – to claim six world championships and four national titles in OCR. He also beat the strongest OCR field ever assembled to become the Tough Mudder X Undefeated Champion for 2017-2018. In 2017, Sports Illustrated named Hunter one of the top 50 fittest athletes. For three years, he has been the undefeated champion of the reality TV show Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge on CMT. In 2019, Hunter became the first athlete to receive a wild card entry to the CrossFit Games. As well as competing at events around the world, Hunter offers a unique training plan via the Openfit platform.
Professional AthleteRelocating from California to Kansas as a high school junior would be a difficult transition for some people, but not Jacob Heppner. He picked up right where he’d left off on the football field and his strong play in his senior year earned him a scholarship to Central Methodist University. After playing halfback for the Eagles for four years, Jacob hung up his helmet and looked for a new fitness challenge, which he found in CrossFit. Applying the same determination that got him through two-a-day practices in college and the strength he’d developed in the weight room, Jacob cracked the top 20 at the 2013 North Central Regional. Making a giant performance leap, he then reeled off three straight 2nd place finishes, and placed 18th, 10th, and 7th, at the CrossFit Games. In the 2019 Games in Madison, Wisconsin, Jacob went one better, claiming 6th place. Recently, he and coach Andrew Kuechler launched Midwest Made (MWM) to offer tailored programming for athletes and affiliates.
Professional AthleteBethany Shadburne’s athletic résumé couldn’t be any more versatile: eight years of gymnastics, three years of bodybuilding, four triathlons, and several half marathons. And that’s before she became a standout on the CrossFit circuit. Starting by joining the WODs at her hometown box and then entering local contests, Bethany had soon upped her game to the point that she qualified for the 2017 South Regional. A strong 4th place finish earned her a berth in the CrossFit Games, where she came in 22nd overall. The next year, Bethany again finished in the top five at Regionals, won the RX division at Wodapalooza, and improved her placing at the Games to 16th. In 2019, Bethany’s performance at the Dubai CrossFit Championship was good enough to earn a spot at her third-straight Games. In Madison, Bethany posted her strongest showing yet, claiming two top-three finishes and ending the grueling weekend in 8th place.
Professional AthleteHailing from Australia’s Gold Coast, Megan Anderson has been a revelation in the UFC women’s lightweight division. But that isn’t the only kind of fighting she’s used to. After graduating from high school, Megan enlisted in the Australian Army. Once she had finished serving her country, Megan started boxing and then took up jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing. Upon relocating to Kansas City, Missouri, Megan amassed a 4-1 fight record that earned her a roster spot in the Invicta Fighting Championships, and she soon won the featherweight belt. She then moved on to the UFC, losing to superstar Holly Holm before beating Cat Zingano in UFC 232 in December 2018. As dynamic outside the Octagon as she is in it, Megan has shown her talent for incisive and witty commentary during fight breakdowns with ESPN correspondents that have garnered a huge audience on YouTube. As she looks forward to her next fight, Megan continues training hard at Glory MMA & Fitness in Kansas City.
Professional AthleteCrossFit co-founder and CEO Greg Glassman once said that athletes need to build up the capacity to “move large loads over long distances, and to do so quickly.” This phrase certainly applies to Jen Smith, who scorched the track in high school and earned a scholarship to the University of Kentucky, where she ran the 800 and pole vaulted. Bored of running by herself after college, Jen joined CrossFit as a way to recapture the comradery that she missed from no longer being part of a team. Just a couple of months later, CrossFit Maximus needed another woman to round out their roster and before she knew it, Jen was going against the best in the CrossFit Games. The team made it back in 2012, and after watching the individual women do their thing, Jen was inspired to go solo. This proved to be a wise decision, as she won the North East Regional to get into the Games. After a three-year hiatus, Jen returned to the Games in 2016 and finished 36th, which she replicated the next year. In 2019, she went back to group competition after her team, Don’t Stop, prevailed at the Mid Atlantic CrossFit Championship, and they finished 6th.

She won the Las Vegas International Model Search the following year. Relocating to Miami provided a new level of competition in boxing, and Avril fought in the USA Golden Gloves and the Ringside Boxing World Championships. Not only focused on her own fighting, Avril also trains clients out of Miami’s legendary 5th Street Gym – once home to Muhammad Ali – and travels across the country conducting workshops and bootcamps. She offers customized digital fitness and nutrition guidance via several unique online programs.
