Volume vs Intensity?

You finished the workout, looking around everyone else is flat on their back in the standard CrossFit “Recovery” position – except you. You’re thinking – “maybe I’ll just hit another WOD”. Are you that much of a beast that you can do multiple workouts in one day? Sorry to burst your bubble – but you […]

No Quick Fix

We are constantly bombarded with a countless number of “quick fixes” to our health problems.

– “Want to lose weight – take these pills”
– “Have back pain – use this new device”
– “8 min abs….”

You get the idea. The reality is – there is no quick fix to our long term health and fitness. Being healthy […]

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

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 the workout. Having those types of people around you, pushing you to get better, to be better is an awesome […]

Goals – Big and Small

Setting goals is important – both in and out of the gym. Giving yourself something to work towards helps motivate you – and keeps you focused on positive progress towards that goal. That’s why it’s important to set smart, achievable goals. In the gym – this could be something as straight forward as – “I […]

Make the Time

We all want to be better, feel better, do better. The problem starts when we actually have to DO something about it. That’s the hard part, the part that stops most of us in our tracks. We come up with all sorts of reasons of why we can’t or shouldn’t. The most difficult part is […]

Where do I start?

You made the decision to take your health more seriously, this is the year you take back control. But where do you start? We are constantly bombarded by the media around us on how to “get fit now”, “6 minute abs”, “eat whatever you want and lose weight”. It can be overwhelming.

Every journey, no matter […]

Be accountable for your barbell.

As a coach, I cry a little bit inside every time someone drops a barbell from overhead.

We see athletes all the time in social media videos slamming their bars down when they hit a good lift, or when they’re done their workout just before they collapse on the floor in victory. The more we see […]

Reasons Why I Do The Open

This year is my third time doing the CrossFit Open. Every year I grumble at the prospect of giving CrossFit HQ my $20 US (ugh) to participate. In fact, I care so little about my placing that not only do I not check my leaderboard ranking, but I barely remember to enter my scores in the first place. On the outside, it looks like I’m a pretty reluctant Open participant. But I’m going to do it, and I’ll continue to do it year after year as long as I’m CrossFitting. With the hope that some of these resonate with you, I present to you some reasons why I do the Open:

What to do with those Holiday Gainz

I waffle back and forth from year to year on whether or not new year’s resolutions are worth my time. This year, I want to focus instead on how to take the good from an undesirable situation such as holiday weight gain, or, as I would like to fondly call it, “holiday gainz”, and turn it into productive work towards your strength goals.

Can Naturopathic Medicine Help Me CrossFit Better?

Spoiler Alert: probably.
By Dr. Hillary, ND

Whenever I tell people what I do, mostly I get a polite, but puzzled response.

“Oh, that’s great!” they say.
I ask them if they know what a Naturopathic Doctor is.
“Uh…no…” they reply.
I hope to change that with this post.

People have all sorts of misconceptions about what I do. Some people think […]
