The YouTube Video Series That Started It All
Founder: Chris Elmore
Chris is the founder and owner of Rocks, Roots, & Ruts. He is an electronic engineer by trade, but has a passion for fitness and being on the trails. He is a CrossFit certified trainer, but has always had a passion is long distance endurance events. He has been competing for over 25 years as a swimmer, runner and triathlete.
He has competed in endurance events of all distances, including the Ironman, the Transrockies 6-Day/120 Mile run, and the 24 hour World’s Toughest Mudder. He is currently training to run his first 100-miler in April.
He began including functional fitness in my training in 2008, when he realized that the years of long slow distance (LSD) training commonly practiced by most endurance athletes had significantly decreased his muscle mass, strength and power.
