How CrossFit Has Changed Sexy Forever, Especially for Gals

Remember about a million years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth, people drew pictures of elk on the walls of caves and everyone thought that leg warmers were appropriate gym apparel? Yeah, those were definitely the stone ages, although not too many women were doing much heavy-lifting with the stones. Back then, skinny …
The Case for Continuous Progression in CrossFit and in Life

The Case for Continuous Progression in CrossFit and in Life

Aim for sustainable and continuous progression. Use yourself as a benchmark, not the guy/girl next to you. Don't gauge the quality of your workout by how much you've sweated or how sore you are the next day. Gauge by the progress you've made from last week to this week on your lifts/time and don't confuse small progression …

CrossFit. Meet Running.

by Rebecca Alwine, Health & Fitness Blogger In 2010, I started running. I had never enjoyed it, never excelled in it, and in high school, I actually quit the basketball team because I was required to run a timed mile and knew I wouldn’t be able to do it. But after having my second child...

New Year’s Resolution? Who Needs One. I CrossFit.

By: Jennifer Cohen We are a full seven days in to 2014 and if I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me “What is your New Year’s resolution” I’d be rich. Each time I am asked this question, I respond with laughter. After all, why not resolve to be your best all...

Joy & Pain: How Much Torture are you Willing to Take?

My absolute favorite comedian is Jerry Seinfeld. I quote him constantly, I’ve watched every episode of Seinfeld and Comedian in Cars Getting Coffee multiple times and I’m seeing him perform his stand-up live later this month. Recently, I came across an interview that Jerry did with Howard Stern back in June. It’s a …

The Macronutrients and You: A (non-Bro) Scientific Approach

By: Chris Hoina, CSCS, USAW, CF-1 The reality is that each individual is unique; your exact dietary requirements are different than the next person. The best we can do is provide an estimate. However, there needs to be some “tinkering” on your part to determine what your individual macronutrient needs are. There are …

What if you had started a year ago?

…….WHAT IF YOU HAD STARTED A YEAR AGO? A new year means many things to each of us. The common denominator though, as humans, is that several things in your daily life are trying to take you out of the game. In an instant, an automobile accident, a bad test result, a simple fall…..all things...

Making your new year fitness goals last

So it’s the time of year again when new years resolutions and fitness goals for the new year have just been set. While all of these are set with the best intentions, how often do they fail to last the year or turn into lasting actions? It is not uncommon for new years resolutions to...

Save a Friend

Fifteen wall balls to go, and I was spent. Breathing in gasps after 4 rounds of farmer’s carry, ring rows, slam balls, and wall balls, I was exhausted. I was only a few months into CrossFit, and was used to finishing last, but that day, I was setting new records. My world had shrunken to...

How to Detox Your Body Without Looking Foolish

I’m so confused. Not confused because I don’t know the truth, but confused as to why people who sell “detoxes” pretend that the term has anything to do with what they’re selling. And confused at why the general public buys these products without asking a few basic questions. Basic questions …

Crossfit: Emancipator or Home-Wrecker?

by CrossfitterMama When I first began Crossfit, I was like a woman having an affair. I would wait until my husband was on his way to work, then I would lace up my minimalist shoes and get out the door quickly–but not too quickly, in case he came back for something, or in case I...

It Is Never OK to Pee Your Pants

As I’ve started to learn more about the culture of Crossfit, it seems to be an ‘anything goes’ sport. And don’t get me wrong, I like that, but one thing that should never be OK is wetting yourself while you’re working out…or ever. In the past few years, I’ve seen pictures and video from the...

Homeostasis of Physiologic Headroom

I recently watched a presentation from 2010 given by Dr. Doug McDuff, an Emergency Medicine physician from South Carolina titled “Paleo Diet & Strength Training Biochemistry”. I found it on YouTube and in the bottom corner of the screen I noticed the words, “21Conference.com”. After listening to him speak for a …

Turning Ordinary Joes into Super Heroes.

In a small island of 166sq miles lies a place called Barbados and in even smaller space of 3000sq feet host a young and upcoming affiliate CrossFit 246. But what they lack in size they make up in stature. Being the first Affiliate on the island, CrossFit 246 has begun to turn simple exercise into...

The cadence of moving mountains: Finding work and meaning in CrossFit

There is a place there. Some kind of nameless inspiration descends upon you and it’s telling you GO. Maybe you’re running 800-meter negative splits – 2:58. 2:57. 2:54. 2:50. The track gets small in the palm of your hands. Maybe you’re doing 30-inch box jumps when your prescribed height is 24. Getting air but …
