What your recovery style says about your CrossFit training
August 6, 2018 Are we taking your recovery seriously or do you just take care of your body when you are injured? That is the most common practice amongst CrossFit gym members.
Until you are unable to function during the wod, you will vaguely pay attention to the recovery process. The paradox lies here under the assumption that you don't need to spend as much time recovering because you will likely never go the Games.
Recovery applies to everyone
Why you should only compete with yourself in CrossFit?
August 1, 2018 Whether it's in a qualifier or a class, you seem to never stop looking at what everyone else is doing. How much can they lift, how fast can they go? Instead of focusing on your numbers, you end up remembering all the others who you think are "good".
It's a positive quality to be competitive but only if it elevates you to higher standards and a more positive person. Often individuals who watch their opponents' every move end up feeling miserabl
What the World Looks Like Through the Eyes of a CrossFitter
July 13, 2018 Whether you have already started CrossFit or about to schedule your first introduction class, you are close to embark onto the best fitness journey that could ever been created on this planet.
Warning! After your first couple of months training at a CrossFit gym, you might see things a little differently.

A marathon? Triath
How to get back to into Crossfit after taking time off?
July 6, 2018 Whether you took time off from CrossFit because of an injury or a busy schedule at work doesn't mean that you shouldn't consider getting back into it. It could be daunting to think of starting all over again. Who wants to be sore, aching and feeling unfit? No one!
Here is how you should consider getting back into your CrossFit routine.
Take a break from your ego
Your muscles will probably feel less painful than your ego. Accepting that
June 23, 2018 We've signed up, completed the introductory classes, and are excited. Now it's time to learn and get up to speed with the members, not just to master everything at once, but to enjoy competing with others during the wod.
CrossFit is comprised of so many movements that it can sometimes feel overwhelming. Because of the excitement in the class and the elite athletes' influence on social media, we usually want to be able to do everything as soon a
June 15, 2018 Sometimes it happens. We pack our gym back feeling great, thinking it's going to be a productive training day and then we show up to class and it is as if we had never worked out before. We cannot even lift 40% of our max reps, feel sluggish and honestly quite perplex. Why are we having such a bad day at the gym and what should we do about it?
What is a bad day at the gym?
When we keep failing snatches, muscle ups or a complicated movem
Why CrossFit members should try to compete at least once?
June 12, 2018 Another post about a competition on the Facebook group page! Everyone is eager, getting ready for the event while we sit back while contemplating the hurtful truth: we are terrified to sign up.
It is a common fear especially if you are new to CrossFit. Fortunately, most competitions are comprised of different categories designed to be performed by athletes of all levels. If you are unsure why you should at least give it a try read the list below
I finish last in all my workouts, should I quit CrossFit?
May 31, 2018 NO, don't quit!
The frantic pace, intimidating bodies, and the coach watching your every move at first can be the first reason why you would think you don't belong to a CrossFit gym.
After a couple of weeks, you should have hopefully made new CrossFit friends and become accustomed to the traditional set up of a class: warm-up, a fundamental lift or gymnastic drills, and a met-con. There are different options to consider if you are finishing the

We want to learn from the best, right? In classes, we mimic the coaches' movements, perhaps we imitate the best competitor of the box. Same applies when we watch YouTube tutorials, we also try to copy everything that is instructed.
Regionals might be one of the best occasions to sit, enjoy, and take in every single detail from athletes performing. The higher the heat, the higher the technique, breathing, and most important of all, the mental
CrossFit members: are you rewarding yourself enough?
May 21, 2018 It feels like a routine now. We pack a gym bag, set up our alarm, and plan snacks for the pre-workout. We go to the gym without even questioning it, we love it and have seen its benefits since we started.
Have we ever took a moment to reflect back on our progress? Have we ever assessed how difficult what we are doing is? Whether it is just for fun or for competition purposes, we need to reward ourselves!
You train multiple times a week:
