December 21, 2015

Here’s a local news segment showing how a rescue mission in Charlotte is using CrossFit to help recovering drug addicts. Welcome to the cult, gentlemen!


The Charlotte Rescue Mission is setting a unique approach to drug addiction recovery by incorporating the Crossfit exercise for more than 100 men.
