    4 Ways to Keep Summer Simple
    The summer can sometimes be a roll of the nutrition dice. You may have a summer full of travel, outdoor parties, and schedule inconsistencies. These types of summers are memorable but can make it hard to stay on track with nutrition.

  • Why do I need a coach?

    Goals and Progress – What do you do when everything is working? Or when it seems like everything is not working? January 2017 was when I made a real commitment to my health and fitness (yes, this was more than a year after I initially started CrossFit). At first, everything was going great. Huge improvements with diet and consistent training. I was eating healthier, paying attention to sleep and stress. The key in this phase was developing consistency. Then, things seemed to stall out – after months of consistent gains, it got a little frustrating to be hitting what were the same times or weights on benchmarks and in some cases going backwards. It left me wondering, what was ....

  • Taking The Long-Term Approach When It Comes To Nutrition

    Taking the long-term approach when it comes to nutrition. What does that look like? Taking a long-term approach to improving our nutrition means we have intent, objectives, goals and a mission to accomplish not only short-term goals but also long-term goals. The big picture mission is simple, we want to be happy, healthy and strong - both mentally and physically. Being consistent with healthy habits like drinking water, meal prepping, and eating real foods is key to accomplishing your long-term goals. Intent without action accomplishes nothing. Setting goals is easy. Being accountable for those goals is the hard part - and that's where working with a ....

  • Wanting a happier, healthier life? Strength training may be just what you need.

    Are you wanting a happier, healthier life? Strength training may be just what you need. Strength training is functional, safe and effective when implemented properly. Maintaining and even building muscle can keep you active and independent as you age. Strong muscles more efficiently power your body, protect you when you fall, help you balance, and burn more calories. Barbells, dumbbells and kettlebells may be your key to creating a happier, healthier life. Not doing any strength training currently? That’s perfectly okay! It’s never too late to start. The natural process of losing muscle mass and muscle tissue starts when you are around 30 years old. However, it’s never ....

  • Goals, The Open and Your Training Program

    Goals, The Open and Your Training Program

    The Open is over. How’d you do? Did you get any new PR’s? The Open is a great time to get a PR or learn a new movement. It was when 16.3 was announced a couple of years ago (an AMRAP of 10 Barbell Snatches and 3 Bar Muscle Ups) that I finally decided to learn how to do a Bar Muscle Up. I learned how to do them a day before the event and got 7 in the workout. PR! In the three years since that workout, I’ve only attempted a Bar Muscle Up once prior to 19.4. But why? To answer that, we have to back up. When I first got into CrossFit, I was into the competitive aspect of it. I’d want to know how everyone else in class did and would want to be the best on each ....

  • Is What You Are Eating Helping or Hurting your Workouts?
