Crossfit Games Masters Athlete Bob Boshoven

I may be a bit biased to want to talk about one of the athletes that hails from my box, partially because he claims I am an inspiration to him and partially because he once confided in me that reading my blog is a guilty pleasure of his. With my personal bias or not, this Crossfit Games Masters...

This is Why I Coach…

This is why I coach. CrossFit works. It changes lives, it saves lives. It has been a crazy journey getting to the point where I own my own affiliate. I went from coaching at a couple of places, to getting kicked out, to having the box sold overnight. Within 12 hours of that sale I...

Strong Athlete or Devoted Mom: Do we have to pick just one?

I’m about to turn 30 years old. At one level I believe it’s just another birthday, but than there is this nagging little voice in the back of my brain that keeps yelling at me that I should be freaking out. I’ve always thought by 30 I would have kids and be a “grown up.”...

Are you ready to do anything for 4 minutes and 56 seconds? That's how long Hollis of Juggling for Jude just juggled her soccer ball without missing a kick, juggling 461 consecutive times! She has now officially reached her juggling goal. If you are inclined to donate, now would be the time, so she can blow past her fundraising goal of $25,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
