CrossFit Makes Me Believe: An Open Story

CrossFit Makes Me Believe: An Open Story Sign up for the Open “they” said. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Ok, I said that, but either way it was said and I signed up not knowing what I had done or if I could do it. I was not rational. I did...

Losing My CrossFit Virginity

It was November of 2009 when a friend introduced me to CrossFit.  He handed me this sheet of paper that included a workout that seemed to be no more than glorified circuit training.  Needless to say, I dismissed it outright.  I was so uninterested.  After all, I ran track!  That had been my first love...

How Young is Too Young?

I personally believe resistance training has little to no effect on injuries in young athletes. If anything, the earlier the better when it comes to establishing an extremely solid foundation. With proper instruction and fun early on, it can only mean great things for the future, and that’s not even taking into account …

Keeping a Crossfit Journal

“Names and scores on the board, please!” How many times have you heard a trainer say this phrase at the end of a WOD at Crossfit Durango, or at your box? I’ll tell you – the exact amount of times you have worked out there. Every time you workout, we encourage you to write down...

Blessings in Disguise

I was mid warm up when a fellow box member walked by me and asked, “Have you ever had a weight problem or were you just blessed with the skinny gene?” I didn’t think too much of this question at first, as I know it was meant to be a compliment and I was trying...

Are you working out too much?

by BRANDYN MILLER We’re told the way to a cover model body is to follow a low-fat diet and get plenty of exercise. We already know that the first part of that equation is complete crap but could we possibly be exercising too much? Most research shows that while moderate exercise is important for combating disease...

CrossFit Reflections: Rituals of Daily Life

Yesterday, 2/27/13, l found myself sitting in a conference room, and as I looked around me everything was gray, dreary and colorless. l found myself at a job interview looking for a change. When the interviewer came in, we delved into my employment history and why I had left every single position under the sun....

13.4 – A Fan’s Perspective

Huddled in coffee houses, on couches and at affiliates across the globe, CrossFit athletes gather to watch the live weekly announcement of the CrossFit Games Open workouts. The movements, times and reps are explained followed by a CrossFit-style throw down between two top athletes. But what goes on behind the scenes? How …

Bloody Shins!!…But Why?

  Scraping of the knees and shins is a very common mistake in the world of weightlifting. I still tend to draw some blood every now and then during cleans and snatches. Usually this means that the athlete’s shoulder position relative to the bar is too far back during the starting position, or the athlete...

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Community.

So many things to say. So many. Good, bad, frustrating, disappointing, and exciting. I like to get the bad over with. So here are my frustrating moments. First and foremost. My 110lb clean and jerk. I have it, I know I do. But there is some mental block from letting my body get under that...

A Game of Firsts

About 7 years ago, my roommate at the time, a firefighter in Salt Lake City, mentioned this little workout called Crossfit to me for the first time. “It’s intense man” were his exact words. I remember looking at the Crossfit HQ website and being amazed that there were people that were able to do these...

An “Athletes” Journey into CrossFit

I’ve always considered myself an athlete. Lettering in four sports in high school, and later being recruited for two sports in college, I was confident in my athletic abilities. A few years into my college career some unforseen health problems resulting in multiple heart surgeries took me out of the game for good. I …

The Journey From the Sideline

Diary of a Bench-Warmer: 9/28/2007….Went home with a sparkling clean uniform again today after the ‘Big Game’. Glad I could contribute to the teams win by taking up space on the sideline and occupying a team locker. Couldn’t share in the glory of ‘grass stain’ and ‘sweat soaked jersey’ this just was not …

Realising Potential via 13.4

I was a last minute entrant to CrossFit’s 2013 Open competition. I’d done hundreds of WODs and strength sessions in my first year at MaD CrossFit in Wellington – New Zealand’s cute but windy capital city. I was fitter, faster, stronger and leaner than ever but I had never come close to what I thought...
