Reflections of My First CrossFit Open

Being a human potential and peak performance coach I have numerous clients that are athletes. We work on creating the mental strength necessary to push through any physical and mental resistance, i.e. pain. Side note: Mental strength is not about coming in first, mental strength is about finishing what you start. Whether …

15.4: Are we there yet?

By Hilary Wiebe Anyone else suffering from Open Fatigue yet? I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had with friends at the gym in the last couple of days that have started with: “I can’t wait ’till the Open’s done.” Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad I did the Open. In …

How To Survive Dinner With Friends

So you’ve been invited out to eat, and you’ve just started to get back on track with your nutrition. Do you: (A) blow off your friends completely? (B) blow your plan and indulge in everything on the menu? OR (C) do you go anyway and eat a crummy salad and hate your life? I choose secret...

Don’t hate the player nor the game!

“Do not get closer wearing that T-shirt!!!” Someone was told while approaching to a group photo after 15.3… One of the things I like the most during the Open is boxes getting together to do the WODs. We can meet old friends, get to know new people and usually having a great time. Last weekend the...

Community, Cliques & Competitiveness

Anytime you bring a group of people together to work insanely hard, good things happen. Doing tough shit brings people together. Or does it? Each workout we push our bodies, we push our limits and we get outside of our comfort zone. In a group environment we naturally push ourselves against the person next to...

15.3: It’s not even f***ing Karen!

By Hilary Wiebe So. 15.1 and 15.2 are in the books. First RX’ed T2B WOD, check. Try like crazy, still fail at getting a pull-up, go to the depths of despair for a day or two only to be pulled out by your encouraging and awesome Crossfit friends; check. I figured, great, two really challenging...

15.3 and thoughts

15.3 and other thoughts I love CrossFit. I do it. I live it. I breathe it. I coach it. I support it. It has changed my life permanently, and for the better. I don’t have much negative to say about CrossFit at all. But, just as if CrossFit were my best friend, and I noticed...

Black Seed Oil: The Remedy for all of Life’s Bumps

I was introduced to the world of crossfit about 3 years ago, and have been addicted to it since. Something about exerting my body’s energy to the fullest has kept me going back. That and the fact that people are with me in the same struggle, cheering and motivating me throughout the process. I guess...

15.1: Those Toes to Bar Though

By Hilary Wiebe So. I’m doing it: what every Crossfit blogger worth their salt is doing (if they haven’t already): I’m writing a post about my experiences with Crossfit Open WOD 15.1 and 15.1a. Background: I suck at T2B (and pretty much all gymnastics movements). I got my first successful one in October …

Bloodbath: Bear Complex Redux

I’ve recently been listening to some podcast by Dan Carlin of Hardcore History and subsequently started watching Marco Polo on Netflix [ tho I may have to stop as there is a part at the end of episode 4 that turned my stomach] Even if you know nothing of the great Mongol kingdoms; you have...

The Customer (In)Experience: 2015 Crossfit Open Week 1

I was an excited Crossfit Newbie in 2013 and after my Groupon ran out, I liked how I felt. I was impressed with the spirit behind what I saw implemented in grass roots-style “boxes”. It didn’t take much to talk me into the Open. From the outside looking in, I was thrilled. The software was...

15.1 CrossFit Games Open – This Is Hard

Two years ago I entered my first CrossFit Games Open Competition. This is what I wrote about that first day of self-torture… Today I completed workout 13.1 for the CrossFit Open. It was hard. The workout was as many reps as possible of – 150 wall balls with a 14lb ball to 9 feet, –...
