Patrick Vellner: CrossFit, Hard Work and “We are Not Machines”

October 30, 2019

Meredith Atwood (@meredith.atwood) and her co-host, ten-year old (at the time of publication) Stella (@stella.lifts), interview CrossFit Games podium athlete and all-around nice guy, Patrick Vellner.

Vellner says, "[As a] part time chiropractor in Nanaimo, Canada, I have an extensive sports background and have been competing in Crossfit since 2013. I made it to the games for the first time in 2015 on Team Crossfit Plateau 2 and have since been back in 2016-2019 to compete as an individual finishing on the podium 3 times. Crossfit has been a great way for me to challenge myself and escape from my studies while also being a great outlet for my competitiveness."
