Read an article yesterday in Men’s Journal that they did with Trainer and fellow CrossFitter Bob Harper. (Best known for his coaching on the Biggest Loser). For those that may not know a few months ago Bob suffered a heart attack while doing a hero WOD at Brick CrossFit in New York.
He credits the fact that he is alive today to Brick CrossFit having an AED in the facility. You can read his whole article here…. http://www.mensjournal.com/health-fitness/articles/the-biggest-losers-bob-harper-talks-about-the-time-he-died-w480735
It’s no secret that we had our own scare at CFI, and thanks to 3 truly incredible members who happened to all be in the same class that morning, a then volunteer firefighter (now full-time firefighter), a paramedic and a registered nurse, along the incredible EMS team that came to the call, our’s was a happy ending as well.
For those of you who may not know, our facility does have an AED, we have for a number of months! The AED is located directly under the front desk computer, clearly visible and easy to grab. All of our staff that are not military, fire, or paramedics have did a CPR training and AED training recertification with Kathy Boose from Training for Life. If any of our members would be interested in such training or recertification we would be happy to put you in touch with Kathy, or if there is a big interest we could also look at holding one at our facility.
