  • Exercising Your Mental Muscles

    Exercising Your Mental Muscles

    I was talking with a client the other day and she was asking why we were doing a specific movement in our warm up. I was having her step across her body in front and then behind for repeated steps (if you've ever done a carioca drill, think that, but walking). I explained the benefit of the drill from an agility standpoint as well as the mental benefit of her working in different planes of motion and the connection to brain function. Over the years I have become a specialist in training clients well into retirement years. A majority of my personal clients have worked with me for over a decade and I have seen them through the end years of their career and into retirement. One of the biggest ....

  • You Can Lead A Horse To Water

    You Can Lead A Horse To Water

    When I was a kid, more often than not on a weekend morning I would jump in the truck with my dad and head to an early breakfast with ‘the guys’. I used to love going along to breakfast with him and my grandpa, my uncles, and any of the other buddies that might frequently visit. To this day, my favorite breakfast joints are mom and pop hole in the wall spots where the local old guys get together each morning and try to solve the world’s problems. These breakfasts with my dad were no different. They’d talk about the local guys running for office, what new road construction was happening, who had a health issue that week, and then of course, the typical back ....

  • Get On The Podium

    Get On The Podium

    Podiums: Starting in February our entire gym will be implementing a new system for Personal Records. We are calling this system Podiums . So how will this work? Each week your coaches will determine a workout or movement that will be a podium opportunity that week. Some weeks could have multiple. These podiums could be a benchmark workout. But really this is about finding more “wins” than just a better time or heavier weight on the leaderboard. We know this fitness and nutrition stuff is hard, and sometimes you just need a win to propel you forward. Podiums will be the opportunity to do just that. If you’re one of our CrossFit group ....

  • Do You Trust Me?

    Do You Trust Me?

    Do you trust me? Honestly, probably not. Why? Because someone or something in my industry has lied to you. They told you all you had to do was workout 20 minutes a week, or take this pill, or drink this shake, or eat this one food everyday and you’d see all these too good to be true results. And it was just that, too good to be true. Someone or something lied to you, and you believed it only to be left money out, time wasted, and right back where you started...or worse. For that, I am sorry. To be honest, about 50% of the questions I get regarding fitness, nutrition, and health in general are to dispel random myths a friend, relative, ....
