5 Things to Consider When Searching for the Right CrossFit Box

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. It’s also why it’s important to make sure you’re training at a box where you feel comfortable and supported and also get great …

Contagious Motivation in 1 Simple Question

Every once in a while, I open my up my Facebook account for Q&A’s which I answer on my blog. As a trainer, coach, and athlete, the questions never seem to revolve around how much I can deadlift or snatch, my percentage of body fat or how much I weigh. Hands down the most common...

Little Victories

Last weekend was extremely hectic for me – what else is new. I actually wanted to get this post written on Sunday but sometimes in life the big post-finishing victory isn’t in the cards. That’s ok though – life is really built from all of the LITTLE victories. The times we remember to add some...

Behind the Scenes Look from the 2014 Games

Rich is still the man.  Camille made the podium… in a big way. And I had the pleasure of seeing it all, as many of you did.  However, I had a different vantage point than many people this year.  I am a chiropractor and I had the fortune of being invited to treat the athletes at...
Fran

Freytag Fran

Yesterday was Fran Day at CFWN. To the true (nutso) CrossFitter, that means all day was Fran Day – alternating feelings of self-doubt and confidence; nausea and lightness; increased heart rate and deep breathing. It’s coming and it’s too late to improve. I mean, technically, it’s just a WOD. But …

Think of Fitness as Food

Think of fitness as food. The globogym is your major fast food chain. You walk in a McDonald’s anywhere in the world, you know what you’re going to get. Same goes for Planet Fitness, The Edge Fitness and most of those other 24 hour gyms you see everywhere. CrossFit is like a locally owned Italian...

Sorry I Dripped My Face Sweat in The Chalk Bucket

It’s been a minute since I’ve been ashamed of my sweat. I remember the days of high school when a hot day would come break the southern California streak of perfectly perfect weather and I would have to pick out a dark shirt to wear for the day. Sweat is less noticeable in black. But...

The Importance of Self-Talk For Peak Performance

I’ve discussed in several posts the importance and affect self-talk can have not only on your state but your athletic self-talk performance as well. Self-talk, that is, what you say to yourself absolutely has a significant influence on performance, both good and bad. It makes sense that if you tell yourself you’re …

Natural Weight Loss with the Help of Qi Medicine

Did you know that one of the most common problems faced today is obesity? And sadly, the fast food phenomenon affects both kids and adults. But that’s not all. Being on the heavy side also means higher risk of heart disease, diabetes and respiratory diseases among others. So what can you do? Lose weight, of...

Don’t Drop Your Squats

Squats: Using a Spotter vs Dropping the Bar When I first started lifting (and squatting) I didn’t really care whether I had a spot or not when I went for a heavy lift because I knew I could safely drop the bar if I got stuck at the bottom. Actually to be honest, I’m pretty sure I...

Thigh Pride: Bridging the Gap

When I was seven years old, my mother proudly showed me the space between her thighs as she stood with her feet together. Yes, my mother had achieved the coveted thigh gap. Even being so young, I was in awe. I couldn’t believe such a thing was possible. My thighs collided at the knees. When...

Kinesiotaping and Performance

You’ve definitely seen it on athletes during the London 2010 Olympics, and most recently in the World Cup in 2014. Now it is cropping up on the skin of athletes in all major league sports. What am I talking about? Kinesio Tape (Note, there are many brands such as SpiderTech and RockTape. For all further...

WOD Recovery Yoga for High Rep Wall Balls

How many Wall Ball shots does it take to make sitting down impossible for a few days post WOD? I am going to say roughly 150. So there you are walking into your Box ready to workout, and there it is on the whiteboard, Karen, for time. Cancel all your plans for the next few...

Minimizing and Masking Odor in the Box

Being stinky is a part of working out, but there are some times when smelling, well, ripe, isn’t acceptable after your work out of the day (WOD). To minimize that “just killed it in the box” telltale odor, try some of these tricks that don’t require you getting anywhere near a shower stall:

Did anyone catch the "Grid"? National Pro Grid League or NPGL? The first ever match was today. It's head-to-head, team workouts, where you strategically sub in Athletes (depending on their strengths) throughout the WOD to complete a chipper before the other team. It was interesting! Big CrossFit names on each team...go to www.npgl.com and check it out. Tell us what you think! The LA Reign home field is the Cal State LB pyramid...maybe we'll all go check it out! CFBH 8.20 WOD a: For Time 3 rounds: 30 KB swings (53/35) 30 Box jumps (24/20) WOD b For Time 3 rounds: 400m run 25 Wall Balls (30/25)(20/18) 10 Pull Ups
