Alumnus Offers CrossFit Classes
Central alumnus and owner of CrossFit OC3, Colin Cartee, has teamed up with GiGi’s Playhouse Quad-Cities to offer monthly workout classes for athletes with Down syndrome. Cartee and his wife, Jessie, partner in teaching the workouts to their students. Because a frequent symptom of Down syndrome is decreased muscle tone, CrossFit is a fun way for athletes to improve their cardio and muscle strength. Students find success in challenging themselves with different weightlifting moves, cheering each other on, working as a team, and staying focused on their victories. Thanks to the Cartees and GiGi’s for working together to offer this opportunity.
