Crossfit Builds More Than Muscle

People start Crossfit for a variety of reasons. Some start because they want to get in shape; others because they want to stay in shape. I started Crossfit, because I needed an escape. I got my escape but ended up gaining much more along the way. I played competitive sports throughout childhood and young adulthood....

5 Things to Consider When Searching for the Right CrossFit Box

CrossFit isn’t like anything you’ve ever done before. It’s challenging, exciting and tough. All of these are what make CrossFit one of the top training and fitness programs.

A New Approach to Scaling

The first time I entered a CrossFit Box, I couldn’t spell “Kipping Pullup”, let alone perform one.

Crossfit Games Masters Athlete Bob Boshoven

I may be a bit biased to want to talk about one of the athletes that hails from my box, partially because he claims I am an inspiration to him and partially because he once confided in me that reading my blog is a guilty pleasure of his. With my personal bias or not, this Crossfit Games Masters...

This is Why I Coach…

This is why I coach. CrossFit works. It changes lives, it saves lives. It has been a crazy journey getting to the point where I own my own affiliate. I went from coaching at a couple of places, to getting kicked out, to having the box sold overnight. Within 12 hours of that sale I...

There are a LOT of people calling themselves coaches these days.  With the boom of CrossFit and the CrossFit Games, the status of the coach has never been higher.  With everyone and their dog having some sort of “certification” though, how do you know what kind of coach you’re getting?  Is your coach brand new...

An Athlete Profile

CrossFit is such an amazing sport. People from all walks of life and ambitions standing next to one another sweating, suffering, conquering. I so enjoy meeting and photographing them all. And when I capture that little spark, it feels like magic. Next up in my ongoing series, Faces of Fitness, is Peyton. Peyton is a...

Strong Athlete or Devoted Mom: Do we have to pick just one?

I’m about to turn 30 years old. At one level I believe it’s just another birthday, but than there is this nagging little voice in the back of my brain that keeps yelling at me that I should be freaking out. I’ve always thought by 30 I would have kids and be a “grown up.”...

When you are fairly new to CrossFit® you can improve at a pretty quick rate. If you’re currently between 1-60, stay committed and consistent because you have a chance to raise your Fitness Level by 20 levels per year. In fact, on average, it takes 19 Months to improve from a level 50 to a level 80. In short, eat well and get to your CrossFit Affiliate a few times a week.

We are still working to get our website back up. It will be up this week. The server that was hosting our site crashed and took our website with it. Some files were retrievable some were not. So our site will look different. We're not sure if it will remain that way long term or if we will completely redo the site. At any rate...thanks for your patience!! AND during this transition, ALL "Breakthrough.com" emails are not working. So, message us on here or call the box if you need anything. :)
