What CrossFit Means to Me: A Way to PR at Life

You think that CrossFit has taken over your life and your family think you are now part of a cult because you have changed. But it is not a cult and it is not even CrossFit. It is you. CrossFit is a tool showing you the way to actively taking control of your life.

The Ethics of Human Movement

By Greg Hickey “There is no reality except in action.” – Jean-Paul Sartre1 Crossfit is constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement. It consists of physical actions which mimic those performed in everyday life. Clearly, functional movements have considerable value. But how much? Does this value transcend …

Mental Toughness

“The Spartans say that any army may win while it still has legs under it; the real test comes when all strength is fled and the men must produce victory on will alone.” -Steven Pressfield, Gates of Fire Mental toughness is a test of character, spirit, resiliency…. one’s very soul. It is a rare thing,...

Love that’s fit to CrossFit

Why couples who workout together, work out together You’re out of breath but focused, tired but ravenous, and the view of your partner pushing you on through a sweat-filled brow is enough to drive you to just one more rep. When you do, your hand reaches for theirs in a congratulatory high-five, and maybe one...

Why We Must Squat

Squats are super important and quite beneficial. Here are some of the key reasons why you need to incorporate squatting into your training program.

When I Step In

Coach J here. As I scan the interwebs I have noticed a lot of attention placed on the topic of injury as of late. I thought I would take the opportunity to talk about where I draw the CF Coach Line and when I step in. Now, just like every Box is different and will...

Top 5 Youtube Channels in the Fitness Community

Youtube is a great resource for knowledge. Often, avid fitness-enthusisasts spend hours each week on Youtube, sifting through thousands of videos to learn more about their passion. Spending so much time in front of the computer can take time out of more important things in your day. This is why I compiled a list of...

Pre-Marathon Nutrition -Why I’m Eating 180g of Fat per Day!

Pick your jaw up off the ground, you read my headline correctly. I’m about to kick off the “fat-loading” phase of my two-week endurance sport nutrition plan. For the next 10 days, I will be purposefully eating foods rich in high-quality fats in preparation for optimal performance at the Dallas Marathon. I’ve …

TBS: Deadly for all CrossFit gyms

Recently I have been thinking about the balance between competition with others and competition with yourself in CrossFit. Where is the like drawn between focusing on other people’s times too much and just not caring at all? Back to the initial point I believe Coach Glassman’s advice to someone who is always …

Should we be thinking smarter about our hydration?

A lot has been made in recent years on the debate about hydration and how much we should and shouldn’t be drinking, whether we should use isotonic drinks or just water and whether or not the 2% drop in body fluid will lead to a drop in performance. Now I am not really going to...

The art of the “Non-Warm Up”

The following is meant to be received with a little bit of humor and a lot of truth. If any of it stings a little it may be talking about you…. “That was tough”, “ I think that I may have done something to my shoulder”, “Why do front squats kill my wrists” These are...

Turn around, stick out, show the world you got a bubble butt

For the past 5 years Synergy Strength (CrossFit Saskatoon) has held one of largest local competitions in Canada with almost 300 competitors. For the past couple years I have tried to attend as many of these events around the province as possible. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no beast of epic proportions but I...

CrossFit for the “Unfit” CrossFitter

When I tell people that I CrossFit, I see that little look of disbelief, that "you??", flash in their eyes. It's gone quickly enough, and luckily I haven't yet come across anyone rude enough to say it out loud.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Operating a Treadmill Machine

Regular exercise is recommended by healthcare professionals all around the world. Many people are following this advice and are willing to exercise to maintain their healthy bodies and to increase their life expectancies. As a result, many companies have turned to manufacturing different body fitness training …

Crossfit is Dangerous Because of YOU

I have seen a lot of response to the article that has been looming for the past couple months on the dangers of Crossfit, but after two more people this week have sent me the controversial article, I needed to vent a little. The reason Crossfit is dangerous is because of the athletes that do...

We are on our way to another record breaking Sweat Angel month! So far this month The Iron Bar has donated 388 meals to veterans through our Sweat Angel program... how cool is that?! It makes me feel good knowing that by simply doing what I love (showing up at The Iron Bar and working hard) I can help someone else in need. How does being an Iron Bar Sweat Angel make you feel? #sweatangels #myworkoutprovidesameal

Monday's WOD

CrossFit Everett shared a link on Facebook

When you are fairly new to CrossFit® you can improve at a pretty quick rate. If you’re currently between 1-60, stay committed and consistent because you have a chance to raise your Fitness Level by 20 levels per year. In fact, on average, it takes 19 Months to improve from a level 50 to a level 80. In short, eat well and get to your CrossFit Affiliate a few times a week.

We are still working to get our website back up. It will be up this week. The server that was hosting our site crashed and took our website with it. Some files were retrievable some were not. So our site will look different. We're not sure if it will remain that way long term or if we will completely redo the site. At any rate...thanks for your patience!! AND during this transition, ALL "Breakthrough.com" emails are not working. So, message us on here or call the box if you need anything. :)
