"As I'm getting older, I'm learning that recovery is the most important part of my training and having a full time job makes it difficult to make sure my body is properly fueled and refueled during the long CrossFit season. I'm counting on Paragon products to make sure I am nurtured appropriately, enabling me to maintain the high volume and intensity of my training"
