Who doesn’t like a little controversy from time to time? If you follow CrossFit on Instagram then you may have seen the Open Diabetes post about a week back. Well when you take on a company like Coca-Cola, you’re sure to get some response. In this case, it came...
Eating Paleo/healthy can be misunderstood as being expensive. Expensive is a relative term. I like cars and there are some cars that can go for over $100k, and then there are some that are $10,000. Some people have the money to go out and buy cars with cash and some...
Recently, Men’s Health posted an article on their facebook page called “How Hard is CrossFit?” (Read here if you want to see the article in it’s entirety).
There was a study done that measured our beloved 20 minute workout “Cindy” to a typical half hour...
I wanted to wish all the dads out there a belated Happy Father’s Day!! It’s the holiday that often gets forgotten in the fold of Mother’s Day and July 4th. It’s also a good one to look back at lessons our Fathers ingrained upon us. From saving money, dating, finding a...

I love me some summer. I’m a summer baby, and have always found myself happiest when the weather is beautiful, the days are long, and I can spend more time in the sand than in my shoes. I like to think summer is pretty much under way right after Memorial Day, but really the July 4th...

Below are a hodgepodge of things I have noticed and would like to encourage us all NOT to do.
Back of the Class
Are you always working out in the back of the box? I don’t know if people like this area because it’s closer to an open door which means fresh air or if it is more of...
I am a coffee addict.
I love coffee. I love coffee even if it’s from Starbucks (and tastes like burnt dirt). Maybe it’s mental and it doesn’t necessarily help wake me up, but I love the smell of it and I may even like the taste. That all said, we have this coffee maker in...
With summer officially here, it means our favorite days are upon us. Hot days, long nights, friends, food and sun. All the things, we have wanted for all year for.
For me, the one thing that I look forward to is the food. From pool parties, BBQ’s and endless holidays, summer is the time were...
There’s nothing you can’t fix with a little fish oil and squats. Although not completely true I’d like to think it is. We all know the health benefits of squats but fish oil is still a deficiency in many athlete’s diets.
By no means is this a definitive end all guide to...
I get a lot of questions from new members about how to protect and take care of their hands. Until you grow some really nice calluses, you have to be vigilant about your hand care.
I shave my palms at least once or twice a week depending on how rough the calluses are using a...
