Alcohol and Gym Performance, Are They Correlated?

November 8, 2017
Lets be honest. Most all of us like to occasionally let loose on the weekends or on special occasions and have a couple drinks with friends and family.

Volume vs. Intensity (feat. Coach Brad)

November 7, 2017
Not only am I a CrossFit coach, I am also an avid CrossFit athlete who truly believes in the theories associated with the CrossFit program and lifestyle.

“Finessing Your Fitness” (ft. Coach Ben)

October 31, 2017
  Let’s take a moment and think about our fitness, as an analogy of your fitness to your outfit.   In CrossFit your fitness is based on a few foundational pieces, like a basic outfit.  The shoes are a crucial part of the outfit (the foundation) let’s say that is your strength.
