Why You Should be Competing

Why You Should be Competing

Competing doesn't have to be about winning (though that's awesome!). It's about pushing yourself, enjoying the community, and growing as an athlete.

15.4: Are we there yet?

By Hilary Wiebe Anyone else suffering from Open Fatigue yet? I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had with friends at the gym in the last couple of days that have started with: “I can’t wait ’till the Open’s done.” Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad I did the Open. In …

15.3: It’s not even f***ing Karen!

By Hilary Wiebe So. 15.1 and 15.2 are in the books. First RX’ed T2B WOD, check. Try like crazy, still fail at getting a pull-up, go to the depths of despair for a day or two only to be pulled out by your encouraging and awesome Crossfit friends; check. I figured, great, two really challenging...

15.1: Those Toes to Bar Though

By Hilary Wiebe So. I’m doing it: what every Crossfit blogger worth their salt is doing (if they haven’t already): I’m writing a post about my experiences with Crossfit Open WOD 15.1 and 15.1a.

I love these pictures. But they’re not why I crossfit.

By Hilary Wiebe Look at these two pictures. They are taken about 5 ½ months apart, the one on the left when I was 3 months into crossfitting, going just a few times a week, and not making too many other changes. The one on the right is after almost 9 months of crossfit, going...

Everything I need to know I learned from Burpees

Back in early January, a challenge was posted on my box’s Facebook page: do burpees for 100 days, adding one more each day. So on day 1, you do 1, 2 on day 2 and so forth right up until day 100 you’re doing 100. I looked at it, thought it over for a bit,...
