Diets promise quick and tasty meals that will get you down to a size 2 in six weeks or less. Exercise equipment is sold on the basis that it will get you six-pack abs in three minutes a day, without breaking a sweat. Internet ads promise to eliminate your belly with one secret trick.

Bang for your Buck

CrossFit is all about the idea of getting the most “bang for your buck” out of the time you spend in the gym. We use compound movements in Foundation work to build strength and coordination throughout your whole body, as opposed to using isolation exercises to strengthen one muscle group at a time. We use high-intensity (and…

“Weighing in” on WZA and the CrossFit Open

The second weekend in January – just slightly over one month ago – I competed at the Wodapalooza (WZA). WZA is a three-day competition held in Miami each year, where approximately 1,500 athletes and 25,000 spectators from over 30 different countries come together.

THE WHITEBOARD IS A LIAR

The most discouraging thing I heard this week as we wrapped up the CrossFit Open was, “yeah, but I scaled it”.  It’s hard to see sometimes, but every one of us scaled it. We all scale on a daily basis. We are all on a different fitness timeline. Remember that. Embrace that. Then, remember that YOU are bad-ass…
