The 411 on Winter Hydration

2017-12-29T21:49:08+00:00

The winter months are colder, therefore we sweat less and need to consume less water, right? Wrong. A common misconception about exercise in colder weather months is that the body requires less hydration.

"PAY THE MAN!" We've heard it time and time again, but what does it mean? What are paying "him?" Who is he (other than Chuck Norris, obviously)? Why do we have to pay? What it all boils down to, is that we all have goals, and we all have a place where we draw that [...]

2017-11-13T05:38:32+00:00

Commitment vs. Motivation: How Motivation is Sabotaging Your Long Term Goals.

2017-10-29T21:04:09+00:00

Motivation is great. It’s that feeling you get when a fire gets lit under your bum and you’re all jazzed up and ready to pursue the goal of obtaining the biceps of Thor or the abs of Wonder Woman. Motivation comes and goes with the weather though. It comes on as soon as you scroll [...]

Coaches Corner: Getting Your Head in the Game

2018-01-12T09:51:27+00:00

What role do you believe mindset plays in having a "successful" or positive experience in CrossFit? Shane: Mindset is everything. So many people get caught up in the right now and forget that it's a "process." It takes time to become strong, it takes time to become flexy, and it takes time to learn, especially about [...]

One of the many reasons we love CrossFit, is the community. We get to see many of the same faces overcoming obstacles and cheering each other on while throwing weights, our bodies, and obscenities around on a daily basis. While it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the challenging WOD ahead and [...]
