I started going to a CrossFit gym in early 2020. I had been working out at a “globo-gym” for a few years and I was tired of it. I would go to the gym 5-6 times per week and not talk to a single person. My workouts were still enjoyable, but I was in theContinue reading “My First Year of CrossFit”

What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a training system, a workout style, and a “lifestyle”. I’ve started doing CrossFit and have really fallen in love with it. I want to share CrossFit with you and give you a better idea of what it is. Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little start and no sugar. KeepContinue reading “What is CrossFit?”
My Journey from Fat Kid to Fitness Freak
My interests tend to drift, regularly hopping from one thing to another. One month it’s guitar, the next month it’s mountain biking, and the next month it’s reading classic fiction novels. One thing that’s been consistent in my life since I was a teenager (at least my late teens) is fitness. My Early Life asContinue reading “My Journey from Fat Kid to Fitness Freak”
I’m SUPER Close to Hitting my Clean and Jerk Goal…

However, now I think I need to adjust all of the goals I have set. I wantContinue reading “What Happens When You Meet Your Goals?”
I Hit My Deadlift Goal
I discussed a few goals I had for CrossFit and weightlifting in this post. One of those goals was to deadlift 315 pounds. I didn’t realize how close I was to achieving this goal. Last week I talked to the coach at the CrossFit gym I’ve been going to about my goals. He told meContinue reading “I Hit My Deadlift Goal”
Why CrossFit Works: The Diet
I’ve followed many workout plans over the years. Most of which I’ve found online. However, I would get minimal (if any) results. However, after further consideration, the problem was my diet, not the training plan I was following. When I started CrossFit a few months ago, I was in pretty good shape. However, I knewContinue reading “Why CrossFit Works: The Diet”
Hello Everyone! It’s been forever since I’ve posted here. Although I typically stick to topics related to my work in digital marketing, I wanted to talk about something else: CrossFit. I took my first trip to a CrossFit gym near my house back in February (pre-quarantine). I’ll share a little bit about what I’ve learnedContinue reading “Starting CrossFit”
