A Child Like Approach To Peak Performance

“I’ll race you to the next tree.” “Whoever gets ten points’ first is the winner.” “Coach said I get to start in the game today. I can’t wait.” Sound familiar? Most likely these are phrases (or similar phrases) you said or heard when you were an active child. Now let’s look at what might be...

What is the easiest way to get a six-pack?

  The thing is that we all have a six pack only for some of us it’s covered by a layer of fat. So in order to make it visible we gotta burn off that damn fat. Talking about the easiest way I suggest you to train daily, by training here I mean fun activity...

A Determination to not Suck

It’s seriously impossible to look at your life and not think about things you could have done better, commitments you probably should have kept, and proud accomplishments you’ve already experienced. I, for one, get caught up in these thought processes at times, but it always proves to be more insightful than …

The Week Before Competition

After Regionals I made the decision to dial way back on Crossfit & focus on Olympic Weightlifting. However, I still coach/work with a number of Crossfit athletes and with more and more of them entering the Competition scene I wanted to put something together (i.e. lessons I’ve learned) in the hopes it will help …

The Fran Obsession

We’ve all been there. Laying on the floor in a pile of sweat mixed with chalk that has long since lost its purpose of helping your grip. You lay there, gasping for air and wonder “How did it come to this?” That’s when you mentally run through the past ten minutes just to prove to...

Welcome to Our Neighborhood

Last week at church a strange thing happened to me… I found myself childless for almost an hour! I knew there was a Distinguished Lecture Series Seminar going on so I thought it would be nice to have a little adult time and listen to something intellectual.

Gear Review: Nice Laundry High-Performance Athletic Socks

Seriously? How excited can you actually get about socks? Being a gear reviewer is a fun job. You get to talk all kinds of crazy technical and design topics with creative people; “we used nanofiber technology to make it bigger on the inside, like the Tardis!” “it not only repels sweat, it turns sweat …

Thoughts From a New Coach

Responsible coaching…

How many times have you seen any coach texting while the class is running or just chatting and letting his athletes go alone in the workout? I’d say a lot, this does not mean that the coach sucks or he is bad at what he is doing, it is just that your athletes need that...

Rx; the obsession behind the prescription.

photo by: Patricia Goya Photography   You’ve probably read a handful of articles about what “RX” or “prescribed” is. What does it mean? Why should you care? If you didn’t Rx does your WOD count? I have been to many CrossFit gyms in the past two years, and I have been privileged to …

Issues With My CrossFit Box

Arrived at box for 5:30pm class. Noticed it was a bit cold. Wished I’d brought a sweatshirt. Went to bathroom. Slipped on pile of bloody entrails then saw someone had used all the toilet paper and didn’t replace the roll. Note to self: ask owners to remind people to replace toilet paper instead of just...

New Virus

There is a virus going around that has ruined more lives than ebola and cancer combined. This thing has caused more depression, more heartbreak, more stress, and more mediocrity than any other mental illness in history. It is more contagious than the flu and seeps in through your ears affecting your brain and eventually …
