The owner of Dentistry for Children, Glenn J. Marie, DDS, is a pediatric dentist who has experience working with children with Down syndrome, autism, and other special needs. Outside of his professional life, Glenn J. Marie, DDS, enjoys many hobbies, including CrossFit.
CrossFit is a workout program that involves a mix of Olympic weightlifting and interval training. This workout can bring multiple benefits to the body. Heart rate will stay elevated through the whole workout and, in return, that increases endurance. Data from a study involving the American Council on Exercise showed that those who were engaged in CrossFit workouts had elevated heart rates of up to 90 percent of their maximum heart rate.
Crossfit was intended to focus on endurance, coordination, strength, power, speed, agility, and flexibility. These movements can lead to positive change, including increased joint mobility. A person’s limbs will be moving in all sorts of directions, and they will also be taught how to properly lift heavy things from the floor and hold them over the head.
