Change, good or bad?

We don’t like change. It is implanted in our beings. If we have to go do something different, we shy away from it or worse yet, we speak out against it. We feel empowered when we voice our opinions and we do it everywhere. It is especially powerful because of social media and the power...

Competition Pressure And How To Neutralize It

Do you perform remarkable athletic techniques in practicing, only to struggle when the game is on the line? Even if this happens rarely to you, don’t worry…you’re not alone. Many athletes struggle performing up to their capabilities during competition, when it matters most. In this post we will look at the …

Be the Whiteboard

You do it. Your friends do it. i do it……we all do it. No one is safe from the hypnotic pull of the “all powerful whiteboard”. It has the ability to consume our thoughts and emotions – fill us with elation or anger, even control our own self image. Give it enough attention and that...

How CrossFit Saved My Marriage*

*this might be a slight exaggeration. One of my dear friends likes to remind me how, not that long ago, we sat at a bar and I waxed neurotic about how the guy I was going to marry didn’t live in this state, and that I probably needed to move to meet Mr. Right. I...

The Push Up – A magnifying glass for a range of movements

While sitting in airport departure lounges and on trains in the past few weeks I was thinking about which exercises provide a clear picture of an individuals fitness, but also provide a broader picture of their strength and weaknesses. The first of these that came to mind was the push up. As a coach I will use...

What I’ve Learned Through CrossFit

My clean and jerk max is 175 lbs. My snatch max is 150. My dead lift max is 350. My back squat max is 315. My best Fran time is 7:15. None of these figures actually matter. They’re not all that impressive compared to Olympic lifters and CrossFitters. I’m not getting paid to improve my...

Controlling Performance Pressure

Developing the mental strength in athletic performance can sometimes seem like a daunting task. After all as a mental strength strategies athlete all you want to do is train and compete right? In earlier posts we overviewed some of the differences between the external environment, your own internal environment (mindset) …
My New Friend Fran

My New Friend Fran

"After nearly 2 ½ years of CrossFit, today I did my first RX Fran, and I couldn’t be happier with what Fran taught me, even if my lungs hate her right now."

WHY do you do CrossFit?

When I first began Crossfit in October 2012, I was at rock bottom, both physically and emotionally. Although I had previously been active, fit, strong and healthy, I let myself unravel, like a yo-yo….once again! Don’t be deceived by the smile, I felt miserable inside! As my food addiction increasingly ruled my …

Keeping First Things First

The Score matters. The score of the baseball game, football game or Lacrosse match determines whether you win or lose. Likewise, in other sports: the score, time, finishing place and/or various personal athletic performance statistics matter. After all, the reasons many of us take part in sports is to compete and to …

Finding Grace

Some days you complete the workout with the speed, beauty, and elegance of a gazelle. Other days you smash yourself in the chin with a barbell.

Did anyone catch the "Grid"? National Pro Grid League or NPGL? The first ever match was today. It's head-to-head, team workouts, where you strategically sub in Athletes (depending on their strengths) throughout the WOD to complete a chipper before the other team. It was interesting! Big CrossFit names on each team...go to www.npgl.com and check it out. Tell us what you think! The LA Reign home field is the Cal State LB pyramid...maybe we'll all go check it out! CFBH 8.20 WOD a: For Time 3 rounds: 30 KB swings (53/35) 30 Box jumps (24/20) WOD b For Time 3 rounds: 400m run 25 Wall Balls (30/25)(20/18) 10 Pull Ups

Hi Everyone Our schedule for trainers will be changing. Starting on Monday (tomorrow) I will be teaching the 5:30am, 6:30am, 8:30am and 4:30pm. Dan will be teaching 5:30 and 6:30pm and Leah will continue teaching the Burn Classes. Emmanuel will be teaching 5:30am on Wednesdays and Fridays (those are the two morning classes that I will not be teaching). After a lot of consideration, we will no longer have the noon class on Tuesday and Thursday. I apologize for this but we someone's have no members and we regularly only have 2. Thanks everyone! I plan to get a few fans this evening to try to get some air flow during classes. See you all soon! Kevin
