This week is going to be as awesome as last week! A few longer workouts, and a few movements we haven’t done in a while. Prepare yourself for some challenging cardio, too! I heard a lot of great feedback about the programming from last week, so I can finally let the cat out of the bag–we… Read more »

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!! We had an amazing first full week back at the box. We braved the rain and the heat and the cold, but all in all we came out feeling amazing. Seeing all of your faces has re-energized me, and I am so thankful for our community’s resilience. We have another great… Read more »
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and May the 4th be with you! Lots of good stuff this week coming your way, with a big focus on cardio. There will be a lot of running/rowing/biking, so make sure you review the WOD the day before and plan ahead (take a peek at the weather). Make… Read more »

Hey guys!! This is going to be another great week of training at home–lots of opportunities to push yourselves! And not quite as many burpees this week, which is always good news.

Hey guys! This is going to be a GREAT week. Don’t think so? Start believing it, and MAYBE it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s amazing how far a positive attitude can go. Have you established a workout routine yet? No? Well what are you waiting for?! This week is your change to re-commit. We… Read more »
Hopefully we have all started adjusting to training from home! It helps to set a daily routine, and make sure you schedule some exercise and sunshine every single day. Try to get your family and/or pets to work out with you. It could be time to start training for that first 5k or half marathon!! … Read more »
This week is going to be as awesome as last week! A few longer workouts, and a few movements we haven’t done in a while. Prepare yourself for some challenging cardio, too! I heard a lot of great feedback about the programming from last week, so I can finally let the cat out of the bag–we are now following COMPTRAIN programming!! I loved the Canadians, but I think this change is what’s best for us moving forward. If you haven’t heard of Comptrain, do a bit of background research and read up on Ben Bergeron. He trains a lot of Games athletes, including Katrin Davidsdottir. This does, however, mean that EVENTUALLY (not quite yet) we will be switching from Beyond the Whiteboard to SugarWOD. If you already have SugarWOD, we are listed under Forward Strength and Fitness.
Just a reminder to make sure you’re hydrating and that you’re coming to class properly fueled to work. If nutrition is something that you are struggling with, you’re not alone! We are here to help, and we have some Nutrition Services that can help you reach your goals. Shoot me a message if you want to chat about it!
I hope everyone is taking some time to enjoy summertime fun! Remember, we train in functional fitness to make us better at all types of physical activities. Let’s all try to branch out of our comfort zones and try something different! Kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, trail running… just the tip of the iceberg. Just don’t forget the sunscreen, guys!
Have a great week, and I will see you at the box!!
