Describe RXD in your own words: Even though I grew up doing ‘workout’ sports and love competing, I’ve always had a tough time staying consistent with training. But thanks to the awesome staff, diabolical programming, and encouraging community at RXD I legitimately look forward to training something new every day. The RXD family is a special place full of team players with just the right blend of fun and badass, thank you all!!
