Phillip Duhaime hates burpees. 

He will gladly ride an Assault Bike, row, run, do pull-ups, or lift a barbell or pair of dumbbells. 

“Anything but burpees” is his favorite CrossFit movement, he says. 

This passion for CrossFit has completely changed Duhaime’s life. Duhaime has autism, and before joining the gym with his family, he spent most of his days in front of a television. At 19-years-old, he was gaining weight and was difficult to motivate, his parents Shail and Lisa Duhaime said.
