Drop-in Doc Urges Doctors and Coaches to Form “Circle of Communication”
One year ago, Dr. Adam Schulte opened a full-service Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice — The Drop-in Doc — located within Resolution CrossFit in Yorba Linda, CA, the goal being to bridge the gap between acute medical care and fitness, and to provide patients with a more preventative approach to healthcare.
Remind me: The DPC model gives physicians an alternative to the fee-for-service insurance billing in the United States. Instead, Schulte charges adults $75, children $20, and families of four $150 per month. “It includes unlimited visits, after hours and weekend hours for emergencies (or) urgent needs,” he explained. This lets him bypass the “nebulous” challenges that go along with dealing with insurance companies and saves patients time and money in the process, he explained.

Quadriplegic CrossFit Athlete Rick Fox Becomes Coach and Competitor
In July of 2008, Rick Fox’s world changed: he dove into a swimming pool, broke the C7 vertebrae in his neck, and learned he would never walk again.
One big thing: Fox, a CrossFit level one coach, is one of the first quadriplegic athletes in the sport.
But it wasn’t until 2017 – nine years after his injury – that Fox started his new journey with fitness.
His story: “It was hard for me to move, hard for me to transfer,” Fox says of March of 2017, when he began to change his eating and fitness habits. “I would do an eight hour day at work and then I was taking a nap in my car for 30 minutes before I even got home.”
Fox started out by tracking his nutrition through MyFitnessPal, and a few months later, began exploring his options outside of solo workouts. After reaching out to a handful of CrossFit boxes, Fox settled on Wayfarer Crossfit in Irwin, PA.
