A 157lb Dissection

Airports and planes are the only places I read magazines. Most of the time, the content in popular magazines isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on, but I usually have several hours of travel time to kill, so I like to warm up with what’s essentially the KFC of...

Why You Train

Do you know why the Bulgarian weightlifting team was so revered from the late 1960's to the late 80's? Because their coach, Ivan Abadjiev, cared more about winning than anything else. One of the only ways to climb the social ladder in Bulgaria at the time was through...

The Returning Athlete

For a lot of us the idea of training is simple; show up, go hard, repeat 5 or 6 times a week, get results. Sounds logical and for many of us it’s worked before. Then life happens. You get that promotion at work, you have a baby or go on vacation! More realistically,...

What Do You Want?

“I want to be faster.” “I want to be stronger.” “I want to be thicker.” “I want to be thinner.” “I want to live longer.” “I want to lift heavier.” Ring true? The fitness and nutrition industry is built around pandering to an audience that might vaguely want one or...

5 Things I’ve Learned From CrossFit

I like the shared suffering. It feels good to do something difficult as a group, it brings you and your fellow classmates closer together. I need the community. I need people to hold me accountable especially when I don't want to be, that's when I need it the most....

Increasing Your Work Capacity

  On tap for this session is a time priority metcon, meaning that the time is the constant and the reps that you will complete are the variable. The goal for this workout is to keep moving for all of the 30 second "working" intervals. Don't worry about your rep...

The Cadaver Project, Entry 1

  “I’m out next week,” I tell my final client of the day. “I’ll be in Phoenix until Sunday.” “Phoenix!” She says excitedly. “Be nice to get away from this cold. Just going out for vacation, or…?” “It’s a dissection lab, actually. My second one.” There is a pause,...

Lie To Me

"It doesn't matter what I say. You can't be told." After hearing this years over by people who cared about me, I was finally woman enough to recognize it as the truth and apologize to those people who I'd steamrolled in an effort to leap forth and land, face first,...

It’s rep No. 88 of 150 in Karen. You’re wincing, braced for the medicine ball to make its descent back into your waiting hands. You catch it, press it between the wall and your shoulder, your chest heaving, your legs shaking, your mind suddenly flooded with thoughts:...

No Church In the Wild

“I was having nightmares about this.” One of my athletes, referring to Murph, shared this with me yesterday as the gym started to fill with people for the CrossFit community’s traditional Memorial Day WoD. I nodded, sympathetic to what he was feeling and acknowledging...

The Inner Asshole

When I was in my early 20s, I was an asshole. First class. To this day, I’m deeply impressed by any person younger than 28 who’s employed, independent, not in massive amounts of debt, and who behaves decently more than 75% of the time. That points to tremendous drive,...
