Deadlifts, The Other Nectar of Life

Deadlifts, The Other Nectar of Life The Deadlift One of the most basic straight forward movements in the world of lifting. You see something heavy. So you pick it up. Pretty hard to do that one wrong. It’s how you pick it up that matters. I would shy away from using the technique that Peter from...

I love these pictures. But they’re not why I crossfit.

By Hilary Wiebe Look at these two pictures. They are taken about 5 ½ months apart, the one on the left when I was 3 months into crossfitting, going just a few times a week, and not making too many other changes. The one on the right is after almost 9 months of crossfit, going...

When the Whiteboard gets in the way of Athletic Development

Testing Frequency & Athletic Development There are a lot of things I learned at University which I have long since forgotten; however one thing I do remember is talking about testing frequency and how it can impact an individual’s ability to pick up new skills and improve.

In Defense of CrossFit

I wasn’t going to write this post today. It wasn’t the plan. It isn’t what I had written in my handy-dandy planner. But it needs to be said (as it so often does). A brand-spankin’ new article is floating around this interwebs attacking CrossFit yet again. In it, the author notes that due to her...

How far (literally) are you willing to go?

I did some math this morning, not the hard kind, just some basic numbers. Katie Hogan (who I randomly picked because I bumped into her last year at the games and she seemed nice) finished 15th overall in Northern California, if she lived in my region (Canada West), she would have come first. We all...

I’m sick, now what?

We are all a little bit like a junky. Fitness is an addiction, just a very good one. So when the dreaded sniffles and coughs begin, we seriously want to just cry. Cry because of all the hard work that has to immediately stop because of a cough. Cry because we cannot raise the heart...

Science Proves What CrossFitters Already Know … It Works!

Ask any CrossFitter if they think that CrossFit is working to turn their body into an incredibly toned strength machine, and they’ll probably look at you like you have seven eyes. That’s because they’ve been through the WODs, felt the aches and celebrated the successes that come with this sport. It’s more than a …

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. :)
