Immediately after a workout is when your recovery starts, don't just lay on the ground flopping around like sizzling bacon till yo...


FITNESS FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Strong Core

The path to PR's (Personal Records) is through a strong core. Most of the movements we do in CrossFit and real life are core to extremity movements. Throwing a base ball or a punch, picking up your child or squatting down to a chair are all initiated from the core whether you think about it or not. Having a stronger core will make you a fitter person. Come on in for our FIRST day of classes and ...


FITNESS FOOD FOR THOUGHT: “Beat the flu”

FITNESS FOOD FOR THOUGHT: "Beat the flu" With colds and coughs being so prevalent during the cooler parts of the year, many are seeking remedies outside of the usual over-the-counter medications.

FITNESS FOOD FOR THOUGHT: “One brick at a time.”

FITNESS FOOD FOR THOUGHT: "One brick at a time." There's a story I recently read of a father who tore down a brick wall and told his two young boys to rebuild it. Although the brothers thought this was far too tall of a task for kids their age, one here later, the wall was built. How did they do it? One brick at a time. Brick by brick. The moral of the story was that our goals and reso...

It's mediocrity that says you’re too old, too out of shape, you're not cut out for it, you have a weak back or bad knees. Mediocrity isn't going to work fo...
