Eve came to us via one of the first 6 Week Challenges we ran. Talk about a success story. And yeah I mean her and how far she has come (we posted about her results a while back), but much more so for us to have her as part of the LAX family. She’s super awesome as anyone who has met her...
Getting back to the topic of health, jumping is another thing you want to keep doing to stay healthy. Besides helping with strength and power, it’s also a great stimulus for our vestibular system. The vestibular system is one of those that degenerates greatly as we age, and in order to...
I’m no expert on meditation, but the little bit I’ve been exposed to is intriguing and certainly linked to having a healthy lifestyle. One of the times I learned about meditation, the teacher implored us we can do it anywhere and it can be helpful even in small doses. The main...
Continuing the recent blog post theme of being healthy, running is a big piece of the health puzzle. And while running is a good thing, improving your form while running can help you get so much more out of running. Today’s post comes from a runner in Europe who reached out and wanted...
Yesterday’s post covered some healthy habits you can incorporate into your daily life. General tips that could help with a healthy lifestyle, and from the mindset of putting health right smack dab in the middle of everything. Today I’d like to give a little more specific health...

Got any plans at that time? Even if you’re not on our Softball team, doesn’t mean you can’t come to Anderson Park in Redondo and cheer, heckle, and of course party a little after. We’ve got a tentative plan to head to the Hangar and drink some...
During our Smolov Jr squat cycle, we will be keeping things like Oly work on maintenance mode. It’s not going away, and though the bulk of our strength will be consumed with back squatting, we’re not forgetting about some key strength and skill work.
