Every sport has its champions, its legends, whose presence or nod, cue, eye contact, et cetera can completely change the way you move. 

Mat Fraser is a CrossFit legend, and nowhere is it more obvious than during the HWPO Training workshops he’s hosting at competitions around the world. 

As a young athlete in any sport, one of the first lessons you learn is if you want to get better, spend time with better athletes. You’ll learn something. 

At the HWPO Training workshop at the Filthy 150 in Dundalk, Ireland, just 45-minutes north of Dublin, local athletes were led in a workout by the five-time Fittest Man on Earth. It was an AMRAP of jumping squats, shuttle runs and burpees. Simple enough, but not without lessons to learn.
