When the Whiteboard gets in the way of Athletic Development

Testing Frequency & Athletic Development There are a lot of things I learned at University which I have long since forgotten; however one thing I do remember is talking about testing frequency and how it can impact an individual’s ability to pick up new skills and improve. Specifically,  we looked at …

CrossFit: The Sport Everyone Loves To Hate

How does one justify the monthly dues, the bad coaches, and simply the CrossFit culture? What does it even mean to be a CrossFit athlete? To be able to do an insane amount of kipping pull ups when a strict pull up is non-achievable? To be able to beat everyone’s time because your work out...

In Defense of CrossFit

I wasn’t going to write this post today. It wasn’t the plan. It isn’t what I had written in my handy-dandy planner. But it needs to be said (as it so often does). A brand-spankin’ new article is floating around this interwebs attacking CrossFit yet again. In it, the author notes that due to her...

How far (literally) are you willing to go?

I did some math this morning, not the hard kind, just some basic numbers. Katie Hogan (who I randomly picked because I bumped into her last year at the games and she seemed nice) finished 15th overall in Northern California, if she lived in my region (Canada West), she would have come first. We all...

I’m sick, now what?

We are all a little bit like a junky. Fitness is an addiction, just a very good one. So when the dreaded sniffles and coughs begin, we seriously want to just cry. Cry because of all the hard work that has to immediately stop because of a cough. Cry because we cannot raise the heart...

Science Proves What CrossFitters Already Know … It Works!

Ask any CrossFitter if they think that CrossFit is working to turn their body into an incredibly toned strength machine, and they’ll probably look at you like you have seven eyes. That’s because they’ve been through the WODs, felt the aches and celebrated the successes that come with this sport. It’s more than a …

Learning to Believe in Yourself As An Athlete

Here is the 13th part in the Mental Strength and Athletic Performance series. In today’s post, we are going to discuss managing our mistakes and understand the negative impact they can have on our athletic performances.

    So I’m lucky enough to workout with some incredible women. They are determined, strong and encouraging. They help me get more out of myself than I ever would alone. They love CrossFit and have made amazing changes over the months and years. It’s so cool to see them blossom and own their …

Cindy – first Impressions

What can be a more crossfit workout than Cindy. It is fully bodyweight,which means anybody can do it. I chose to do it as my very first crossfit workout, cause I didn’t know anything about crossfit, except watching crossfit games which was breathtaking, so I thought I should start with this tiny little thing. That...

Self-Doubt and Heroes: A CrossFit Newbie Takes on “Murph”

I’ve always loved Memorial Day. Maybe it’s because of growing up in Central Pennsylvania near the birthplace of Memorial Day, Boalsburg, PA. My parents always made sure we attended the festivities and later in life, I would return with my own family to run the 4 mile race that begins the day. But this Memorial...

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
