How Do You Respond to Setbacks?

So…I hurt myself. Last week during a set of deadlifts I felt a tweak in my back. I was able to finish the set without much pain, but after standing up after the last rep I knew my back was fucked. I tried to do the next workout, which involved rowing, and every stroke wasContinue reading “How Do You Respond to Setbacks?”

I want a ROCKSTAR Business to Promote

One of my favorite parts of marketing is finding the positive, unique or exciting aspects of a product or service to promote. Every marketer wants to work with a business that is already a rockstar.

My Journey from Fat Kid to Fitness Freak

I’m SUPER Close to Hitting my Clean and Jerk Goal…

Today at CrossFit, the metcon was an AMRAP with 8 dumbbell thrusters, 8 power cleans and 16 calorie row. RX was 35-pound dumbbells for the thrusters and 135 pounds for the power cleans.
