It would also lead him to the best overall fitness of his life. Shawn is fascinated by the way the body works and improves with exercise. Shawn believes whether it's to recover from an injury, prevent future injury, improve performance, become more fit, look good in the summer, or just be better at being human, Crossfit Assimilation is the place to be!
