Do You Have a Bad Trainer?

When you’re entering into a contract with a CrossFit trainer, you’re doing nothing less than entrusting your health and well-being in his or her hands. Yet not all CrossFitters are fortunate to get the crème-de-la-crème of the training crowd. Quite honestly, there are plenty of trainers out there who use the title …

Gear Review: StrongerRX RTG Gloves

  When it comes to CrossFit related gear, I’m the equivalent of a golfing duffer or hack. Example? A few years ago I walked into a golf shop that was going out of business looking at some new clubs and a young guy comes up to me and says “Forget those, I can build you...

Metamorphosis: How Crossfit has Strengthened my Running

 by CrossFitterMama Last year I was a thirty year-old male named Kevi Williams. On the starter list, at least. As a 40 year-old American woman living in Germany, sometimes things get lost in translation. Nonetheless I found myself back at the race again this year. Wearing traditional CrossFit black in a sea of neon, I...

Crossfit Programming – It’s Just Science

Programming needs some help. Let me explain my position. I’ll start with some numbers and then some qualitative observations. I’ve worked out 5 times per week, every week for the last 24mo, and 3 times per week, every week for 6mo before that. That means I’ve done about 600 crossfit workouts in my …

Self-Image: Believing Takes Practice

Having a healthy body image was never in the cards for me. My mother was small and thin and “frowned upon” fat people. To my mother’s horror, I inherited my father’s family fat genes, and she declared war on those genes the moment she could no longer cover up my roly-poly thighs with little dresses …

Skills practice is work

We have entered the fitness era where lines are blurred when it comes to training. We live in the hype moment of metabolic conditioning and high intensity training and we feel like we need to push the body all the time. I have done a lot of reading lately and although I don’t train a...

Mobility – The Key to Unlocking Strength

Mobility: “The quality or state of being mobile.”  “The ability to move freely and easily.” Mobility has an important role in our everyday lives. But how can improved mobility enhance your strength training and overall fitness level? I have heard people say “all that working out will hurt you” or “one day …

Good Nutrition Eases Side Effects of Cancer and Promotes Healing

Good nutrition encompasses much more than adding green vegetables to the diet. Nutrition is the process that the body uses to obtain the benefits of consumed food. The body uses food to replace tissue, improve the body’s ability to stay healthy, and as energy to spur growth. Good nutrition is important for everyone, but …

O-Lift Programming Roundtable

Behind great performance, there is always a plan. For Olympic Weightlifting, that plan is called “programming”. Here are thoughts from three top athletes/coaches on the topic of programming: Colin Burns - Avoid programming for yourself, because you’ll end up doing too much of what you want and too little …

The Fitness Misconception Cycle

For the past few decades the route to physical fitness and general health and wellness has been deterred for the average man or woman. General information about getting and staying physically fit, eating correctly, and maintaining general healthy lifestyles has been sparse, and the information that was and/or is available …

“You Don’t Look Like A Trainer”

A friend of one of my clients told her that “Kristy doesn’t look like a trainer….there is a trainer at my gym who is a lot more cut up than she is”……. Yeah. That just happened. I love when people say to me, “someone was talking about you the other day.” It makes me laugh....

My Road Back to Regionals

In the spring of 2012 while in my final year of law school and working as a law clerk, I saw a groupon for three months of crossfit for a steal and I thought, “What the heck, I’ll give it a try.” I was bored with my current gym routine, which consisted of running and...

Keeping Calm The Night Before a Big Match

This is Part 11 in the series on Mental Strength and High Intensity Athletic Performance. Perhaps the most common mistake athletes make happens before the event, or starting a high intensity athletic performance. The night before the event or a CrossFit drill that they know will push their limits as they are lying there …

Are you ready to do anything for 4 minutes and 56 seconds? That's how long Hollis of Juggling for Jude just juggled her soccer ball without missing a kick, juggling 461 consecutive times! She has now officially reached her juggling goal. If you are inclined to donate, now would be the time, so she can blow past her fundraising goal of $25,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Before you go enjoy your holiday weekend, keep in mind those less fortunate, and donate what you can. Thank you for your continued support as this summer project winds down. Be safe this weekend!
