Fittest Eye Doc

Do you remember the "Fittest Eye Doc Challenge" from last year? Dr. White does! Not only is he still doing CrossFit, but his sons Randy and Dan (that's Dan with him flipping tires) have opened a CrossFit gym in Amherst, just west of Cleveland and Skyvision Centers.

"People don't think of eye surgery as physically taxing, but it is!" said Dr. White. "I've become a better surgeon by lifting heavy weights and doing the high intensity workouts in CrossFit. It's just a ton more fun now being able to do it with my boys at Comet CrossFit whenever I get the chance to get out there."

CrossFit is constantly varied full-body, functional exercises performed at relatively high intensity. Created by Greg Glassman, it has become the principal fitness program for many special forces groups, SWAT teams, and Firehouses. It first appeared on the internet in 2003 at and CrossFit Santa Cruz, and there are now more than 3000 CrossFit gyms all over the world. There's even a Kid's program, CrossFit Kids, founded and headquartered by Jeff and Mikki Martin at CrossFit Brand X.

" I firmly believe that every doctor of every kind should do as much as they can to be as fit and healthy as possible!"
