Competitive Drive – The good, the bad and the ugly.

By |May 14th, 2019|Categories: Articles|0 Comments

One of the things that interested me, and continues to keep me motivated in CrossFit is that competitive feeling when WODDING with friends. The friendly chirping that keeps you pushing just a littler harder during […]

“Oh, that’s great!” they say.
I ask them if they know what a Naturopathic Doctor is.
“Uh…no…” they […]
