“Shhh, Show Me.”

“Shhh, Show Me.” December 21, 2017

Most of you know my dad, Larry Howald. He's the guy you hear on the radio for Howald Heating and Air. He's the guy that helped make our space so great. He's the guy that never complains and always has a smile on his face. My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2005. It's a shitty disease and watching it progress is heartbreaking. Why am I telling you all of this? I'm telling you this because

Progress is Not Linear

Progress is Not Linear December 20, 2017

We all want to progress and we all want to progress RIGHT NOW. It’s all about instant gratification. However, we must change our attitudes and perceptions about the rate of progress. Progress is not linear. Most of us expect to constantly make progress. We think we must always PR, we must always see the scale drop every week, we must always feel motivated, we must always get that next skill,

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
