Alabama Adaptive Games

Onsite Competition for Individuals

Event description

"Adaptive CrossFit practices the same fundamental movements of CrossFit, but the strategy and equipment are creatively modified to fit each person’s needs. From an 18-year-old to an 80-year-old, everyone is striving to do the same basic movements, at their best personal intensity level."- https://www.challengedathletes.org/sport-spotlight-adaptive-crossfit/
