How CrossFit Causes Injuries

How CrossFit Causes Injuries

Does CrossFit cause injuries? Or are our bodies already damaged before we start CrossFit? Either way, you need a good coach and common sense for prevention.

The Need For A Workout Partner

It was a modest twenty eight floors with about fifteen hundred people, a relaxation floor, two floors of snazzy meeting rooms and the greatest corporate locker room ever (daily fresh towels, roomy lockers, and free hybrid soap shampoo).

One of my “sisters” messaged all the girls saying that she needed her butt kicked extra hard in the WOD if we saw her looking distracted as she had split up with her boyfriend. Straight away the girls messaged her back, reminding...

What motivates you?

What drives you to get up at 4:30 in the morning to go do your workout? What helps you to take the left turn to the gym and not the right turn towards home after work every day? What is the burning desire deep inside you to reach your goal, to achieve that personal best,...
