How Functional Fitness Supports Long-Term Health with Brian Kunitzer
Jun 08, 2020 Episode 45
Preslie Hirsch

In this episode I am joined by CrossFit* Games athlete and founder of CrossFit Magna (@cfmagna), Brian Kunitzer. As a competitive athlete, husband, father and business owner, Brian can speak to how to prioritize your health while you have a lot on your plate, and the importance of making choices that are aligned with your values. Over the last 10 years of owning an exercise facility centered around family, health and fitness, Brian has learned a lot about a well-rounded fitness program, coaching, helping individuals achieve their goals and much more.

In this conversation we discuss:

  • The basics of what CrossFit is as an exercise program
  • How to take the next step in long-term health and fitness (especially if you just started a routine during quarantine)
  • How a functional fitness program positively impacts your life physically and mentally outside of the gym
  • A challenge you can try to work on reducing how often you complain and the way you frame opportunities 
  • How to find the right gym, coach and/or program for you
  • Debunking common questions/concerns like if you need to be in shape before starting CrossFit, what to think about if you feel judged as a newbie at the gym and if you should still workout if you’re super sore
  • And more!


I would love to hear what you think of this episode — let me know on Instagram @heypreslie. Enjoy!
