Three Ways To Improve Today

What do we want? To get better. When do we want it? NOW! Right? We live in a world of instant gratification. We like fast results. I walked in to my CrossFit box with the impression that I was realtively in shape. I was wrong. Horribly. As I walked out, I was determined to get...
Survival of the Fittest

Before you sign up to Compete…

CrossFit competitions are not hard to come by and with the increasing popularity of the sport I imagine its only going to get easier. However, they may be easy to find and a lot of people might be doing them but if you’re thinking about signing up (especially if its your first competition) there are some things...

Achieving Flow Through CrossFit

Have you ever heard someone declare that they were “in the zone” or “going with the flow?” These terms are quite common, but most people don’t use them literally. When you are truly in the zone or immersed in flow, you are psychologically in the moment while performing to your absolute best. You have a...

A Few of Your Favorite Trainer’s Annoying Catchphrases

Box Talk: Burpees and Breathing

I see a lot of common, albeit unfortunate, reactions when people start to do burpees. The one I want to tackle today is a tricky one, because I totally understand why it happens. Basically, CrossFitters stop breathing

Only at Reebok CrossFit One would it be possible to be partnered up during class with a Reebok employee who helped design and develop the very shoes you were wearing on your feet.

The “Holy Hell” Moment!

I apologize in advance. It has been said that for a Blog post to be effective it should be above 250 words but probably no more than 800. Well, I have lots to say more often than not, so again I apologize for the length of this post but the topic is one that I...

The First Rule About CrossFit …is not what you think.

There is one real rule in my CrossFit box…and its not what you think. In 1999, Tyler Durden spoke a rule so important that it bore repeating. Don’t talk about Fight Club. We make jokes that the first rule of CrossFit is to tell everyone that you are doing it. Honestly, who wouldn’t be proud...

The Exact Science of Leg Length Discrepancy

A leg length discrepancy (LLD) does make you feel awkward as this leg length difference doesn’t go unnoticed. Recent studies have shown that the true or structural LLD is less common than we realize, and most of them are functional by nature. Structural vs Functional Most of the Structural discrepancy occur due to …

Today we’ll take a look at how to set yourself up for success in your athletic competition. Reaching peak athletic performance is far too involved and comprehensive to set specific …

It’s Not CrossFit

The only reason I tried CrossFit is that it was different from anything I’d ever tried before. I was nearing 200 lbs – my heaviest weight in a life-long struggle with my body. My self-esteem was at rock bottom. I had attempted and abandoned so many goals that I had lost faith in my inner-strength....

24 HOUR MAX PULL UPS Who wants to try this? According to the Guiness World Records, the most pull ups in 24 hours is 4,182 and was achieved by Kyle Gurkovich (USA) at Retro Fitness in Piscataway, New Jersey, USA, between 14-15 June 2014. Well, we decided to modify it for October's challenge--Max Pull-ups in 3 minutes. Requirements: Must have an official timer and counter. Chin must be over the bar each time. Arms must be fully extended at the bottom. ***A video would be REAL nice, but not mandatory. http://ow.ly/BKwSJ
