You Don’t Have to Workout First to Do CrossFit

Last night I was on the phone with someone and the topic of me owning a CrossFit gym came up. What followed next, I hear all too often: I started working out 6 months ago but don’t know if I’m in good enough shape for CrossFit. I get why this can be a misconception, but that’s exactly what it is. A lot of what gets put up on social media are pictures and videos of people doing flashy moves like muscle-ups, handstand push-ups or putting a crazy amount of weight over their head. Not to mention .0001% of freak athletes...

What is a Skill Session & Why Should You Consider One?

Group classes are fun! Not only are you getting a great workout in but you’re doing it alongside your coaches and friends. However, we all have those things that we can improve on. Be it technique on a lift, i.e. not pulling completely on a clean, not hitting depth on your squats consistently, etc. Or those more advanced movements like pull-ups, doubles or overhead squats that take more time to develop. A skill session can help. What is a skill session you ask? A skill session is a 30 minute one on one session with a coach to hone in...

Is fear hold you back?

One of the greatest things about CrossFit is that it is constantly pushing you to achieve more. As an athlete, this continues to give you something to strive for and get better at. As a coach, it’s so amazing to see members continuing to achieve things they never thought possible. It’s those achievements, those moments you see something click, that joy in someone’s smile, that walking a little taller feeling that really got me thinking. What is the barrier between walking in the door of a CrossFit gym and achieving those moments of joy, happiness and boosted self-confidence? The answer…fear....

Partnering with Healthy Steps Nutrition

Over the last couple of months, you may have noticed me emphasizing the importance of nutrition in regard to overall fitness.

Much like building a house, no matter how beautiful, it is only as strong as the foundation on which it is built. It’s this recognition that has led us to partner with Healthy Steps Nutrition in an effort to provide our members (and non-members) with the most beneficial program we could find. Healthy Steps Nutrition was founded by...
