How much time should I spend exercising? There are 4 right answers.

How much time should I spend exercising? There are 4 right answers. August 1, 2017

       When I first started training my goal was to stop being 92lbs. Seriously, I was 92lbs as a freshman in high school competing in wrestling, tennis, and rugby while attending school with a curriculum heavy in science and math (there was a lot of homework to do). I devoted about 50% of my free time, about 2 hours a day, towards sport and physical activity (doing curls and dips in my roo

Failing goals? This is the answer.

Failing goals? This is the answer. June 26, 2017

by Taylor Hastings Don't focus on the goal As the CrossFit Regionals arrive and pass I have been thinking a lot about my goals inside and outside of the gym, especially after I listened to some words from Coach Ben Bergeron. I came to the realization that goals I set for myself in the past have turned out only to be dreams because of the EFFORT I put forth trying to get there. The best example o

The best hobby you can invest your time in.

The best hobby you can invest your time in. June 19, 2017

     Life can be hectic, and stressful. The chaos can often take over all of our time and become overwhelming. To combat this problem I needed something that I could do for enjoyment, but while attending university I didn't want to invest my time in something that was just entertainment. If I was going to invest time in it I wanted to get something useful out of it. My goals were to stay in

The Crossfit Open is over, now what?

The Crossfit Open is over, now what? April 8, 2017

The Open is a great time of year where everyone comes together to push each other forward, taking on challenges and often surprising themselves by accomplishing things they didn't know they could! Once the Open ends if you've qualified for Regionals your training gets a bit more focused, for the rest of us it can be easy to lose focus without another week's test to drive us forward. Here's what

How to successfully get in great shape, shhhh it’s a secret.

How to successfully get in great shape, shhhh it’s a secret. March 21, 2017

Motivation is the least important aspect of any successful change. In fact most of the successes I’ve achieved in my life have occurred in periods where I was not motivated. At all. Most of the years I went to Regionals I was not motivated to train. I wanted to do any number of other things, including sleep, significantly more than I wanted to do the training I had set for myself each day. Here

Is Crossfit for Beginners?

Is Crossfit for Beginners? January 3, 2017

My answer to this is yes Crossfit is for beginners. There's a catch though. We'll get to the in a second.    Crossfit is a group implemented program.

Why It’s so Hard to Lose Weight – (5 minute read)

Why It’s so Hard to Lose Weight – (5 minute read) January 31, 2016

Here's a hint, we are our worst enemies. The truth is weight loss math is fairly simple and the hurdles are manageable. However, as with most things in life, it's not the problems that are the problem but how we handle them that is. The first major problem with fat loss is that your body loves consistency. If you have consistently eaten a certain way, exercised rarely, gotten up at a certain ti
