Ohlsen, who finished 6th at this year’s CrossFit Games, spent the last 12 months training every day with 4-times Games Athlete Travis Mayer in Atlanta but since moving back to Miami with his girlfriend Joann, has been struggling to recapture the intensity he had going toe-to-toe with Travis every day.
Speaking to Will Edmonds on the AMRAP Podcast, Noah explained, “I’ve had a bit of time adjusting and finding the same motivation I had everyday when I knew I would be going to meet Travis at the gym at 9: We’ve got this session at this time, this session at this time, and we’re on it. Now I wake up in Miami. I don’t have anybody I’m going to meet at the gym. It’s just not as sharp down there for me training right now.”
“I’m putting out a recruitment video to see if there are any other Games athletes who are interested in moving to Miami and training with me full time. I think that would be pretty cool.”
