On getting Rhabdo

Having rhabdomyolysis sucks. But, let us first discuss Olympic lifting for a moment. Just a couple of short months after starting CrossFit, I attempted a one rep max clean. I warmed up at 135 pounds. After a few reps I started slapping on five pound steel plates until I really felt the load, then threw...

Gearing Up: How to Have a Well-Equipped Triathalon

When you participate in a triathlon, it’s serious business. You’re not just doing one sport or activity. You’re doing three – biking, running, and swimming. You need to have excellent conditioning, excellent hydration, and the right gear. Being properly prepared could cut your speed and improve your …

WHO ARE YOU?

You are not average. You know and I know. Because you are a Crossfitter and we don’t like to be average. We want to be as faster, as stronger and better as we can achieve. So we train, and we train seriously. Or at least we think we do…but tell me, when was the last...

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, these leg coverings have become a staple in many workout wardrobes. There are two versions of these babies: one simply for kicks and a …

Understanding The Anti-CrossFitter

We all know at least one Anti-Crossfitter. They roll their eyes at the mere mention of the word CrossFit. They will rant for hours about the fact that absolutely nobody can really be Paleo. And they burned any socks that came above their ankles a long time ago. These fitness buffs tend to spend their...
Devious fIT Girl

Welcome to the box!?…Excuse Me?

CrossFit! This word evokes such passion from people. It seems that the fitness world is buzzing about it with both accolades and negativity. The sheer mention of CrossFit in a group of people and you would think we were discussing some major world issue-everyone seems to have a very firm opinion. You either love it...

The Naked Truth Part 2: Hot Bodies

In a recent post on the topic of perception of the human body and Crossfit culture, I had written a profound statement about how I am not ogling other Crossfitters but merely watching mechanics. This was before the Battle of London. Wow. Hot bodies come in all shapes and sizes; and to not admire them would...

Our next Foundations session starts November 3rd! The course will run four weeks on Mondays and Thursdays at 6:30pm for a total of 8 sessions. Foundations is designed to introduce beginning CrossFit athletes to the movements and lifts that we utilize in our normal classes. If you’re looking to get started with CrossFit, this is a tremendous way to start. You will learn the basics, and you will gradually build up to the intensity that we utilize in our daily classes. This will allow for a safe and thorough start to your CrossFit life. In addition, we feel that starting with a group of beginners is less intimidating than jumping in with people who may have been doing CrossFit for years. If you haven't heard of CrossFit, or want to know more about what it is, this article does a tremendous job of describing what you can expect: http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2012/03/01/a-beginners-guide-to-crossfit/ Please feel free to email info@crossfitsandpoint.com with any questions or concerns.
