The Fittest Eye Doc in America, a challenge thrown down by Dr. White in Cleveland and open to any and all eye doctors in North America, has a home for its first big event! Crossfit San Diego will host a competition during the ASCRS convention at the end of March.
"I can't begin to thank Lisa Gibson enough for opening her gym to us while I am in San Diego for ASCRS," said Dr. White. "Lisa and her trainers have made us welcome in their space. This should be a great start to the year-long Challenge!"
The Eye Doc Challenge is a test of true, overall fitness. It includes a test of pure strength (the deadlift), aerobic capacity (a one mile run), and muscle endurance (pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and squats). It is meant to invoke memories of the Presidential Council on Fitness tests we all remember from grade school.
Any eye doctor, ophthalmologist or optometrist can give it a go! Just send your results here, or post them on the Skyvision Centers Facebook page.
