Why I Compete

I wasn’t quite sure where to go with this article…I first started with – “Why YOU Should Compete…” But the when I was writing, I realized everyone has their different reasons for competing or not competing and this extends further than CrossFit. As children we have friendly competition all the time …

3 reasons you get hurt at CrossFit

There is a huge amount of bad press about CrossFit hurting people. I hear about Doctors and physical therapists who claim CrossFit bought them a new Porsche or a new boat. I am going to let you in on a big secret…CrossFit doesn’t hurt people. CrossFit doesn’t cause injuries. CrossFit is a benign being. As...

All You Need to Know on Preventing Cancers

Everyone has cancer cells in their body and these cells never get caught in normal tests until unless they multiplied into few billions.

Gear Review: ZERO | G Bottle Belt

When it comes to new products, there are two things I love. #1 – an entrepreneur and inventor that takes that leap to bring something to market all by themselves. #2 – someone who creates a product that provides a solution for a problem that I didn’t even realize I had. Paul Peterson hits a home run...

Habits and Athletic Performance

I think it’s safe to say the all of us have a few areas of our lives that we’d like to improve or enhance, right? Especially when it comes to fitness! One of the simplest ways in going about this is by creating good habits that make these positive changes…but often it feels tough to...

Listening to that Voice

Sometimes we all have to make decisions we don’t like… For me that was listening to that inner voice that the athlete/ego in me wants to ignore, but the coach in me knows is right… Four and a half months ago, I had a… let’s say, an “unique” landing when tandem skydiving for the …

Training young athletes

Having worked with a large group of young individuals lately I was a wake up call to see just how little basic motor control some of them have, for example struggling to even pass a football in a straight line, well more that I hadn’t considered this for a while. However it did make me...

Why are you here?

Why is a question most people hesitate to answer, hesitate to ask, hesitate to bring up. You can remember back when you were young, when you did something wrong and your parents asked why, you hated having to answer that.  Mostly because you knew what you did was wrong, and you still did it. We...

It’s Okay to Compete

We’ve taken to the road again after a ten-day pit stop back home in Bellefontaine, Ohio. We caught up with friends and family (and our dogs) and enjoyed sleeping in our own rooms after five and a half weeks crammed inside Big Sil. For several days prior to our return I had looked forward to...

To cheat or not to cheat? The “misscounting disorder”

You hear the signal “3-2-1…go!”, the adrenaline starts pumping, you are fully beast-mode. You are doing great until that moment where the pain starts to increase, you barely breathe and your muscles don’t respond anymore. You take a rest and hit it again only to discover that you come back to the …

Why “Strong is the New Skinny” is Here to Stay

I don’t remember when I first heard the phrase “Strong is the New Skinny,” but I remember vividly the first time I heard someone attack it. I was excitedly explaining to a friend at work that I had PR’d my back squat, and I said jokingly, “hashtag – strong is the new skinny!” I …

Hold The Standard

I saw this phrase when I was out in California for the CrossFit Games in July. We had visited Deuce Gym in Venice Beach to stop by and meet their community. Immediately I was impressed with how the members were listening to the coaches, how friendly everyone was, and how much knowledge the coach was...

Calf Implants

By some bizarre twist of fate, an issue of Men’s Health Magazine was sent to my door a few weeks ago. As I picked it up and began to read, I was unpleasantly surprised by it’s content- or lack thereof. The magazine was basically formatted in the same way as Cosmo or Elle. There were...
