05/15 :: P CLN, KB SW and Jog with a little OH skill work :: After watching the link below, it made us think about how we interact with others and go through life.

05/14 :: Toasty Tuesday! As the warm weather sets in, it is very important that you are hydrating appropriately. Drinking water throughout the day has massive benefits beyond the obvious. Try to keep a large water bottle (and refill it) near you at all times throughout the day, to help remind you to drink.

05/07 :: Vince Lombardi, “Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.” How do you train? With purpose, with intensity or do you just go through the motions? Let’s face it, training day in and day out can be tough, but if you are training for a reason, even the hardest training day can be productive in the long run towards your goals. Learning to push thru fatigue and the stresses of life, is also about training the MIND to press on and never give up. Successful people understand there will be difficulties on the road to their goals. Training the body is easy, it’s the mind that we must work hard to train, if we are ever to prevail in life, and achieve our goals. :: x3rnds – WB, Slam and Sprint with a JRK series!
:: Nutrition Matters Challenge begins Wednesday night! If you need help staying focused, accountability or that additional nutrition guidance, then we encourage you to signup!

What better way to kick off the week than a benchmark workout – Nancy! For many months now, we have been going through the OH WU and we have seen dramatic increases with athlete’s range of motion and control. Today’s points of performance, external rotation to control that position, thus controlling that bar! :: Here is a link to one of the original CrossFit OH SQ videos, ENJOY!!
05/04 :: S-to-OH, Floor wipers and Hops with an emphasis on the OH WU. :: Leap of faith? Have you ever taken a leap of faith? Training, is one small analogy for some, but we often find that through our training we gain confidence and fortitude to take on new adventures and/or face our fears.
