Stop Trying to Inspire

Coaches, athletes, owners, friends, coworkers, 2nd cousins, distant uncles and everyone else – Stop.Trying.To.Inspire. Try this instead: Be inspiring. As the wave of social media continues along its selfie-filtered path the amount of people that hypocritically come out of the wood work is multiplying. Daily inspirational …

CrossFit Open 2014 – What The Hell Was That?

Dave Castro tried to kill me. The weapon used? 14.3 with a 14.5 chaser. Part 1: 14.1 and 14.2 This year’s CrossFit Open was pretty crazy. Not because of the typical burning lungs, screaming quads or shredded hands. Those are everyday concerns in the world of “better today than yesterday”. No, my crazy …

In today’s piece, we are going to look over how you can manage mistakes and how those mistakes impact your performance on and off the field.

CrossFit As Part of a Green Lifestyle

Being “green” is important to many people, which is why millions of individuals have eagerly adopted environmentally friendly living methods, products and philosophies. So, what is the “green” person to do when it comes to joining a gym? Right off the bat, there are some big issues to overcome: Most Gyms Aren’t …

When your body speaks, listen!

I really have mixed feelings today and these mixed feelings made me think a little. You see, I went to gym and my workout was supposed to be deadlifts. Nice heavy ones for 5 reps and a couple of sets. Easy on paper, well yeah. Warm up went ok. Did kettlebell swings for 10 minutes...

My CrossFit Story…a look back.

The first time I tried CrossFit I hated it and swore I would never go back. I’m not talking about the love-hate relationship you have with CrossFit where you hate gutting out a tough workout but love the way you feel afterwards. I mean, quite simply, I hated it. I was out of shape, embarrassed...

The CrossFit Talon Easter Throwdown – Awesome.

I left Talon’s Easter Throwdown not long after my final WOD. I was sore, tired, sweaty and chafed, and utterly disappointed. The comfortable atmosphere of CrossFitters, time clocks, and chalk had become suffocating and stale. As I threw my bags over my sunburned shoulders, I did a quick shuffle to the door. I needed …

Finding Your Fit: Jeans for Crossfit Girls

Strength and fitness do not equate to thin and slender. Certain physical regimes build up muscles, resulting in firm but bulky bodies. The bodies are healthy and strong, but may struggle to squeeze into standard-sized clothing. Women living in the Crossfit realm of exercise know this all too well. When you’re a Crossfit …

Diet Starts on Monday

I smoked for 16 years. From 11-27 years old, I smoked tens of thousands of cigarettes (I’ve done the math). It was part of who I was. I ran cross country and smoked before and after practice. I smoked right before a meal and immediately after. It was the first thing I did when I...

Eating and exercising for the body you want

I have been reading a lot of posting of people trying, but not getting there or simply tired of trying to meet their goals. Is a subject I think about a lot. I question what are their goals? And that, should be the first question people ask themselves; Why? Then second should be what are...

Training Around your Injuries

If you exercise on a regular basis, with any degree of high intensity, than sooner or later injury will come. It doesn’t necessarily mean you weren’t training smart, or that you did anything foolhardy, but it comes with the territory. Anything from a nagging shoulder “twinge” to a pulled or torn muscle. Training …

I’m not building my body for you

I’m not sure at what point my perspective changed and I stopped giving a shit about what other people thought of my body. There were times in my past when a compliment or a negative comment about my body could make or break my day. Frankly, I could give two flying fucks anymore. I don’t...

What is Beautiful?

Ten years ago I was 15 lbs lighter and wore a size 0 or 1 jeans. I worked my tail off in the gym 6 days a week and I was never satisfied with how I looked. Today, I have two beautiful children, I weigh more than “the standards” say I should weigh, and I...

Taking a Second Job Just to CrossFit

We all know a CrossFit membership isn’t the cheapest thing around. But is it worth it? Most CrossFitters will respond with a resounding “YES!” However, would you take on a second job just to pay for your membership? That is exactly what 20 year old Austin Rice did. Austin goes to school full-time, works at...

From Plant-Based to Paleo

I was putting away groceries last night when I came upon my Tofu Press collecting dust in the kitchen cabinet above the sink. I received it as a gift last Christmas from my parents along with multiple vegetarian cookbooks and a subscription to Vegetarian Times Magazine. I feel guilty still having that subscription as a...

CrossFitters: How to Avoid Rhabdomyolysis

While it’s absolutely possible to get injured during any strenuous activity, the ultra-intense makeup of CrossFit can sometimes lead to athletes – especially first-timers – over-exerting themselves. While this isn’t unusual in and of itself, long-term exertion has been known to lead to physical issues, not the …
