To The Edge and Back

I first found CrossFit just over two years ago. I never considered myself an athlete, despite my swimming in high school and going to nationals on my college team with the women’s 400m relay, because I have always had a belly that doesn’t seem like it belongs with the rest of me. So I didn’t...

GROWING THROUGH THE OPEN

What does the 2014 Crossfit Open mean to you? The possibility of going to Regionals? The opportunity to see how you stack up against others in your age group world-wide? Just another fun Crossfit “thing to do?” I see it as a way to push myself and to see what my weaknesses really are. The...

Is Your Energy Bar Sabotaging Your CrossFit Success?

If you haven’t seen the plethora of energy bars advertised everywhere from the grocery to your favorite sporting goods store, you definitely need glasses! They come in exciting packages, promising to provide you with everything from increased stamina to leaner muscle mass. Their price tags run the gamut from 75 cents to …

That’s not what The Open is about

When Crossfit Games Open 14.1 was released, I remember hearing so many negative comments from people who were either unable to, or not very comfortable, doing double-unders and how it wasn’t fair that they programmed these in the workout. Ironically, some of those same people ended up not only getting their first DU …

Risks & Rewards

Risks & Rewards A Survival Guide for the Average Masters Athlete By Daryll Krivanos Anyone who has seriously considered exercise of any sort should from the start be comfortable with the fact that a real risk for injury exists. Be it running, biking, swimming, CrossFit or Zumba, you might as well be reconciled with …

Victims, Villains and Heroes: Why Abuse Victims Should Crossfit

 by CrossfitterMama Not to build muscle. Not to ‘feel’ better about how they look. Not to improve self-esteem. Not to have the ability to kick ass, if necessary. Victims of abuse, whether it was sexual, physical or emotional, should Crossfit because it has the potential to change the mindset. And any change …

Surviving The Open: Advice From a Newbie

My First Crossfit Open WOD 14.1 My take on this experience so far: I feel there is a lot of unnecessary added stress/pressure to the average crossfit athlete participating in the Open (or is it just me and my obsessive/competitive personality?) Having never participated in the Open before, I was full of emotions and …

The Ethos of Fitness

By Jesus Garcia There’s a lot of unnecessary debates when it comes to fitness. Should I do more cardio? Is it better to jog for a longer time or in short sprints? More weight and less reps or the opposite? Kipping or strict pull ups? To crossfit or not to crossfit? The truth is that...

Make Everything in Training Important

Last year at Regionals in the team category I was one of many who helplessly stood in a pool of her own sweat and tears after not completing three burpee muscle-ups in what felt like seven of the FASTEST minutes of my LIFE, in order to help advance my team to day two. Now, at...

Why I’ll Never Stop Pumping Iron

I wish fitness, or rather the love for fitness, was something that has been in my life for forever, but it hasn’t. Like most everyone else I played sports as a young kid and then I ran track for a few years, but I never was super serious about actually being in shape. Cue turning...

The lure of the leaderboard

Last year was my first time competing in the Cross Fit Open. I loved it, and had some early success in my age category. A well-meaning friend pointed out that I was currently 5th in my region! Of course, I dropped everything to look, took a screen shot (because it might never happen again), and...

Mental Game – Your Body Hasn’t Given Up Yet

6 words uttered to me during an Open WOD last year changed my whole CrossFit mental game. During that hellish Fran workout also referred to as 13.5 I was dying…and I mean dying on the chest-to-bar pull-ups. I was panting, my hands were ripping and it was the longest 4 minutes of my life. I...

No one believes that a disease as complicated as Alzheimer’s can be warded off by an apple a day or by faithfully hitting the weight room. But a breakthrough study presented Sunday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference shows that after just two years, people who underwent lifestyle interventions showed improvements in their mental functions, including in memory, executive function and speed tests of their cognitive skills.

Not sure who put the big trash can outside last night, but please don't do that again. If you must, bring it back in before you leave. It was full of rain water this morning and extremely hard to get the bag out. Also, there are several cats around that can get into it if it's left outside. Do don't mess with it especially if it's raining, or if you do, make sure it's back inside before you leave.
