First, CJ Martin passed the bar to become a lawyer. Then he went on to raise the bar in what it means to be an elite CrossFit coach.

 

The former attorney now owns the infamous CrossFit Invictus, home gym to a number of elite CrossFit athletes, and this week he’s joining the Brute Strength podcast to discuss mentorship, leadership and entrepreneurship.
