20 Things to Know About Coming to CrossFit 2311


  1. Don’t believe the stereotypes. Not all CrossFit gyms are dark, dingy rooms with super-chiseled athletes grunting and yelling. You’ll likely find people just like you; regular people looking for a fun and challenging way to get into better shape. 2. Confidence is key. The relative intensity of CrossFit can shock you and make you believe that you can’t do it, or that it’s too hard. But everyone starts somewhere and you

What are you doing right!


It happens to the best of us. We set a goal and start working towards that goal; then, we have a bad day, or a bad week. Does that bad day or bad week completely erase our progress? No! However, people are hard on themselves. We let our mistakes define us, and allowing ourselves to do that is a big hit to our own motivation and future progress. For example, our dietitian had a client come in recently for her nutrition follow-up. She was

TIME.  RESISTANCE.  HAPPINESS.


Time is generally the one thing we all wish we had more of and it is usually the one thing we use as an excuse for not doing X, Y, or Z. “I just don’t have time to exercise”.  I’m too busy to get together”.  “I’d love to help but I just don’t have the time.”  Unfortunately, spending time on things that improve our lives generally fall by the wayside; physical health, spiritual health, mental health, and relationships.

Emotions.  Stoicism.  Discipline.  Freedom.


I belong to a fantastic business mentorship group made up of gym owners.  We share a ton of information and it has become an invaluable Think Tank for me, both personally and professionally. We all LOVE to read.  And we read A LOT.  So of course we recommend great books to one another.  More often than not, they are books about improving yourself, serving others, and being a better human being.

Be Your Own Superhero


Find your WHY You’re not sure what to do. Every day you tell yourself that today will be different. That you won’t hit “snooze” and instead get up and exercise. Or, on your way home from work that you won’t drive past the gym this time. Your spouse is tired of hounding you to do something about your health. “If you don’t want to do it for yourself, do it for your kids

Visualization Leads to Actualization


Visualization, done right, can be extremely powerful in achieving any goal.  As you think about your goals for the New Year, take into consideration the following… Using your intellectual factor of imagination see yourself already in possession of your goal.  Picture yourself with the healthy and fit body you desire, and literally feel what it is like to have it.  You cannot achieve anything in your “outer world” until you first see

Perhaps you have heard of mastermind groups but are not sure what they are and how you could benefit from them. What is a mastermind? I

Prevent Impulse Eating


It’s happened to all of us.  You know the feeling - you are away from home running errands, or you are out late because you had to stay at work longer.  And you realize that you are hungry.  Not just a little hungry though.  You haven’t eaten for hours, your head is starting to throb, and you can’t even think straight. Bottom line:  you have to eat.  Now! As you survey your options, you realize that getting something to eat that is

What’s Your Time Worth?


"I don't have time" and "I'm too busy" are two of the top reasons why people have a tough time committing to a gym membership. However, research shows that exercise improves mood, sleep, health, weight control and increases energy levels, so why does it get put on the back burner when life gets hectic? When stress levels are on the rise, we should be prioritizing the one activity that can help us manage that stress in a healthy way. Now, co

Nutrition Made Easy


From counting macros to The Zone Diet and even cutting out meat altogether, there are countless diets out there to choose from. Additionally, everyone has an opinion about diets based on what has and has not worked for them, but what's best for you?
