Laura Scheper, a Media Relations Specialist at the Orange County Transportation Authority, is leaving the OCTA tomorrow, according to an email message she distributed today. But she isn’t going to another public agency. Instead she is going to go to a company called CrossFit.
Apparently she is an avid CrossFitter and she has been working part-time as a CrossFit trainer over the past year. She had been offered the chance to explore opportunities in the world of health and fitness and after much consideration, according to her email, she decided it was time to take the next step.
Scheper worked for the OCTA for over five years. Her responsibilities included daily assignments with OCTA board members and high-level executives on media inquires, interviews and presentations. She wrote and distributed news releases on a weekly basis. And she was a project manager for outreach on various transportation projects, according to her Linkedin Page.
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide, according to their website.
Their program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Their specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. They’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts.
Scheper also suggested that if you ever want to give CrossFit a try, please don’t hesitate to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
