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!

10 Really Good (and Legit) Reasons to Convince your Friends to Start CrossFit
May 11, 2018
What did you do last night? I was at CrossFit. What are your plans for the weekend? I am going to CrossFit! So, last minute dinner party, are you in? No, sorry I am going to CrossFit (and everyone will be mad at me if I cancel last minute).
Instead of rejecting every aspect of your social life because of this place you are going to almost everyday and which creeps your friends out, why not bring them along with you?
Sounds easy enough u

Attending a CrossFit gym class doesn't sound that difficult, does it? It's not, but if we want to have a good time and perform well at our gym, there are some guidelines to follow!

What you don’t realise you are learning when doing CrossFit
April 29, 2018 A great body, the ability to run, squats and lift things overhead. These are the physical benefits of CrossFit.
Since the very beginning CrossFit has allowed us to feel better in our skins but also enabled us to sleep better, play our children, or simply carry a luggage around while travelling.
Apart from practical efforts and activities, CrossFit has expanded our mindset. We are confident and grateful.

What changed in our lives since we started CrossFit?
April 23, 2018 Because of CrossFit, our world changed forever.
Better health, better lifestyle, and better mind set. Who knew that in such little time we would be able to fit in a workout almost every day in our busy schedule, meal prep and sleep like a baby most nights? We wouldn't swap back our previous routine for nothing in the world.

April 13, 2018 We would never have though that we would spend that much time at the gym! A twice a week routine turned into four times, and we are now coming at the gym to do accessory works and active recovery sessions. Our friends and family were admiring our will power but they are now concerned by our new passion.
Is it wrong that most of our day revolves around CrossFit? We think not, but just to check, we are going to go through all the reasons why t
April 6, 2018 Rest days are not easy to manage, especially if we are loving what we do. CrossFitters have usually an aversion for rest days. Although we know it is necessary, we find it hard to stay away from the box. We shouldn't be waiting until our body collapses to schedule a rest day but it is often what happens.
Why do crossfitters don't like rest days and what can they do about it?
We think we don't need it

April 1, 2018 Is there anything worse (within the gym environment) than to look at the WOD and realise that we cannot do a movement? Not because we have not been taught this particular movement but because we have decided to skip it?
Preference, ability, and mood, all were good reasons to deny the fact that we didn't feel like repeating the drills, endure frustration and spend extra time at the gym.
If we do not feel any guilt and resentment towards ourselve
March 23, 2018 When we look back at our beginnings we often overlook the hours spent working on specific movements. Because we are always in search for more, more reps, more weight, more speed, more explosivity, we don't take the time to appreciate the struggles and far more importantly, the victories! Do we even remember our first times in Crossfit?

March 19, 2018 It is not what they wear, it is not what equipment they use, it is not where they do it. So, how is a crossfitter fitter than an average gym goer?
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines fit as "sound physically and mentally". Based on that definition, which skills do crossfitters acquire which gymgoers perhaps do not have the opportunity to develop? What happens in the closed doors of a CrossFit gym seems to be radically different than in
