The Fittest Community on Earth

The Fittest Community on Earth “The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes. The Games were created to fill a void—no other true test of fitness existed. From Ironman triathlons to the NFL, all other athletic events neglected to accurately test fitness. Even decathlons, while testing a relatively wide range of abilities, missed vital components of physical fitness. The CrossFit Games events are made up of a broad range of functional movements. Functional movements move large loads, long distances, quickly. These movements also form the basis of our exercise program. Make no mistake—the CrossFit Games are designed to test, not train, fitness. The goal is to find the fittest athletes, not to produce an easily replicable workout program.” This is what the CrossFit Games are on paper but they are so much more than just a test of fitness. They highlight the true community of CrossFit. Thousands and thousands of CrossFit members and fitness fanatics gather every summer to watch the fittest athletes in the world compete. There is no bigger gathering of like minded individuals then the CrossFit Games. A community of people with one general understanding of being the best possible human being you can be. There is no other sport in the world where the last place finisher receives the loudest cheers and their fellow competitors come over... read more

CrossFit is one big mental game

CrossFit is one big mental game. There’s so many factors that contribute to our successes and/or failures. The big ones are obvious: Nutrition, mechanics, consistency, dedication… but some of the smaller ones can get overlooked because we don’t see how they relate to our athletic ability. One of those is your attitude. CrossFit is competitive. It’s hard. It’s taxing. But why did we all stick with it? Because despite all of that it was FUN! We loved the people working out next to us, we loved the coach yelling at us to push out one more rep and then collapsing on the floor feeling accomplished. But then, somewhere along the way, maybe you stopped having fun. Maybe you have a nagging injury, maybe your progress isn’t moving as fast as it was, maybe someone new is becoming better than you. And slowly but surely you start dreading coming to the gym. You look at the WOD and your immediate thoughts are “that’s going to suck”, “so-and-so is going to beat me in this so why should I even try”… and next thing you know you’re going through the motions and the only thing keeping you coming back is knowing that you should workout because it’s good for you. If you’re walking in to the door with those thoughts you’ve already set yourself up for failure. Your ATTITUDE is everything. If you walk in to work with a feeling of dread and the only thing keeping you going to work is the need to keep a roof over your head, you’re going to accomplish the bear minimum (and even that... read more

Stress, Diet, Sleep…Optimize these and say goodbye to pain  

Stress, Diet, Sleep…Optimize these and say goodbye to pain         We all started our fitness journey for very similar reasons. We all work our asses off daily to try and reach our goals but for whatever reason some of us fall short no matter how are we try. Well the answer could be the lowest hanging fruit possible. This pyramid is something all CrossFitters should know, memorize, and live by. If you do not have the foundation of the pyramid then the top parts mean nothing! It’s a popular saying that you can’t out train a bad diet and that is 110% accurate. You also can’t recover properly. Now I am not going to go into the Diet aspect of this because we have a world class nutritionist  on staff who will discuss this further in other blog posts (Shout out to Chloe). I will however talk about Stress and Sleep. I know we all live very busy lives and some of you have kids so getting a full 8 hours of sleep is nearly impossible. If you honestly look at your schedule and life, is there an opportunity to get more sleep? I am going to go ahead and say yes. Start a schedule. Stick to the schedule. Do not stay up late binge watching Game of Thrones or Orange Is The New Black. Why? Because you busted your ass in the gym today and your muscles need time to recover. That happens when you are sleeping! Get on a schedule and make it a priority to stick with it. Fall off a day or... read more
