Posture and Pain in Children

For the most part, parents are in tune with their children. When they fall, they pick them up, bandage a cut knee and kiss bruises better. But when their child complains that ‘my back is sore’, it is often overlooked or disregarded. In our practice, we have parents who come in with their kids and...

Baby food is where I drew the line.

  Since beginning my CrossFit journey in August 2013, my eyes have been opened to many new and strange experiences in this hitherto unknown (to me) world of fitness. For the most part, I drink the Kool-Aid and like it.  For example, my vocabulary has expanded to the point that I can speak the lingo...

Shop Like a Pauper, Eat Like a Prince

“I want to eat better, but healthy food is so much more expensive.” I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard this line, or some variation of it. Yes, healthy eating is more expensive. As a matter of fact, healthy eating will cost you a whopping $1.50 extra per day, according to an article...

Mobility Must Haves: Ankles, Hips, and T-spine

Stretching is out; mobility is in. Long gone are the days of static muscle stretching to “loosen up” before a work out, practice, or game. If your joints are stiff, there is limited potential for the muscle to stretch. Instead, focus your warm-up on joint mobility, particularly your ankles, hips, and thoracic spine …

Easy as 1,2,3: The not ao revolutionary strength program

There are a lot of great programs out there. You’ve got smlov, bulgarian, cuban, 5/3/1, and probably a million others. While all these programs are great for their specific sport, few can be integrated into multiple sports. That is the main goal of this program. It is not neccessarily set rules, but a philisophy …

Sharing Fitness in 2014

No I haven’t done my level one (yet) , but i’m passionate about all kinds of fitness especially crossfit. It got me into the summer shape I wanted and people noticed, so much so that while on holiday this December in sunny South Africa, when I should be resting from training and celebrating my university...

Female Body Satisfaction

One aspect of psychology I have begun to do work in is feminine body satisfaction. Current research discusses that the way a woman feels about her body can influence her overall happiness, sex life, self-esteem, and many other facets of her life. This makes sense. If you don’t feel great about your body, it’s …

Fuck you shitty mantras

I’m not sure when you start hearing these messages: You aren’t good enough. You aren’t worth it. Maybe it is when you are young and you get that first look of disapproval from your parents. It could be the first time you got a grade in school that wasn’t an A+. That first time someone...

Crossfit newbie

Hello all! My name is Miguel Amurao. I am a third year medical student. I hope to become a primary care sports medicine physician. I also hope to become a regular writer for this website, as I have been reading articles off this page for quite some time! My athletic background is a very humble...

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...
