There’s no better time of the year to get semi dressed up and see what everyone looks like outside of sweaty wod...
You’ve heard it plenty. You need to sleep! It’s very important to functioning as humans, but did you know it could be potentially deadly to not get enough sleep?? Here’s why:
Now that you’ve read the why, here is the how from the one and only Kelly...

If you saw Monday Night Football this past week, you may have seen the great battle between Partiots CB Aqib Talib and Panthers WR Steve Smith. In the end Smith got the better and told Talib to ‘Ice up, son.‘ Because of the abuse we put ourselves through, we should be doing as much...

As much as I hate to say it, there are things that challenge me and many female athletes that are simply non-issues for the dudes. Push-ups, pull-ups, dare I even mention chest-to-bars? Achk. Unless you are a rock star, you probably walked into the box and needed to scale some of your...

“It’s raining here, you know what that means?”
“When are we going up to the mountains?”
“When are we going snowboarding?”
“When are we going to...
