Moment of Awesomeness: 5/4/11

Ben Sappey has been CrossFitting with us for just over two months (give or take). About a week and a half ago, he came into the gym for a Sunday Funday class, having injured his thumb that day doing some skiing and Breckenridge. It turns out that the injury was more severe than he thought.

He broke it.

This was a bummer to hear, because most of the time a broken thumb means time away from CrossFit, but not with Ben. He has been coming in regularly, and I’ve just been making adjustments to the workouts that Ben can accommodate with his injury. Why? Because CrossFit is “Universally Scalable.” He came in the first few days with a splint, then the next few with a cast (which he broke in the first few days of having). So today was Ben’s first day with this NEW cast. Watch the videos below, and you’ll see why this latest cast is a little different than most! Ben, you are awesome 🙂

He can row with a broken thumb and a cast!

He can jump rope with a broken thumb and a cast!

He can even TALK with a broken thumb and a cast!

Basically, Ben is the man!
