It all started from a friend, a colleague, a peer . . .
From being bored with the same routine, from plateauing time and time again . . .
I wanted to get healthy, I wanted people around me who cared . . .

They called it constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity . . .

It's about taking the first step -

It's called CrossFit and I friggin' love it!

Cue You

It didn't take long - in hindsight, to learn the basic fundamental movements of CrossFit, but once in awhile we have to throw out the cues that make athlete's react, and react they did. . .

The CrossFit Virus - Getting the Bug

It started so innocently. . . you know, the CrossFit journey that now has taken a hold on your life.  It started out as a couple of trips to the gym, and POOF. . .

When we workout or we are getting ready to workout, we should be prepared right?  As prepared as we can be. . .

It Starts Somewhere

Not that we don't already know this, but I came to appreciate the simple statement that everything has to start somewhere, so indulge me . . .

Week 1 Done

So I took the plunge, I put my $10 out there into the CrossFit pool to see where I stand amongst those that compete.  Now, I am pretty sure there are no excuses to anything, but I gotta throw this one out there. . .


There isn't too much that surprises me on a daily basis, but last night happened to do that and I would like to take the time to discuss a little bit about the technique of the power clean and then talk about last night's workout.

Getting Ready

I started last night off on a sour note.  I was recovering from being sick and I wasn't about to let down the athlete's that I coach and not be there for them.  As I was already on antibiotics and cold medicine, the only thing I really didn't have was my voice, but I would be there for them.

It means to be done, finished, gasping for air, unclear on where you are and what you are doing, c'mon, you know what I mean. . . .

Never Alone

I don't normally have the time to participate in too many group classes.  My schedule kind of prohibits my ability to make it to a 6 am class and I am usually Coaching the night classes, but I had a different instance last night, and many other nights besides this particular one . . .

We all act differently when faced with challenges - for most people the gut reaction to this particular question is what type of challenge is it, in my eyes, what's the difference?

Evolution of a Class

It wasn't too long ago, about a year and 6 months ago today, that 3-6 people was the common number of people per class, oh my oh my, how times have really started to change. . .

Oh Music

Music has a tendency to define people.  There are all different walks of life that have a different rhythm for everything, but how interesting is it that the people who CrossFit, who are all different, put those cares aside for 1 min to 1 hour, just to become better?
