Awareness in Fitness

2019-01-26T07:35:03+00:00

Fitness has forever been embedded in external motivators. Every diet or exercise machine commercial has smiling, good looking and athletic people in it. Even though those are not the audience they target. On social media, all we see is how much weight is lifted or how fast people complete workouts. Sometimes we get caught up [...]

How to create resolutions

2019-01-26T07:35:11+00:00

Last week, we dove in the reasons why the New Years is an important time to set your resolutions for 2019. That is no shocker. But most people do not know how to properly set goals. The difference between dreams and goals is the clear vision of what it will take you to get there. [...]

Coming back to the gym

2019-01-26T07:35:27+00:00

No other time of the year is as tough on athletes as the Holiday season. Bad diet, parties, travels, cold temperatures outside, you name it. All of which builds inconsistency in the gym. Coming back to your workout routine might seem like a herculean task. Here is how you can go though the Holiday season [...]

Balancing running and CrossFit

2019-01-26T07:35:34+00:00

We live in Central Florida, which means we either know someone or are someone who chooses running as their main sport. If you have ever trained for long races you probably had the feeling of "I need to do more". It turns into countless miles and a large amount of time spent in your running [...]

A proper Warm-Up

2019-01-26T07:35:42+00:00

Every workout should have a warm-up prior to it. Regardless of type of workout, duration or age of athlete. A good warm-up will benefit your mind as much as it benefits your body. But what does a proper warm-up look like? The way you start your workout depends on what your workout is. There are [...]

A long term commitment

2019-01-26T07:35:50+00:00

In the age of "6-pack abs in 60 days", Netflix and Amazon Prime, we've grown accustomed to receive instant gratification. If you don't text someone back in 10 minutes, something might be wrong. Not that long ago we used to send pigeons as text carries. REAL pigeons. Anyway, we assume most things can be achieved [...]

Why functional fitness?

2019-01-26T07:36:12+00:00

Functional exercises have taken the spotlight in the last few years amongst the fitness industry. Kettlebells, battle ropes, steel maces and medicine balls have substituted cable machines and treadmills. Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, calisthenics, powerlifting and other modalities are being practiced by everyday athletes looking to improve performance, but mostly importantly, their quality of life. How's [...]

Hinge vs Squat

2019-01-26T07:36:26+00:00

Arguably the two most essential movements a human being can do, the hinge and the squat often get misunderstood. It is not uncommon to see people squatting when they should hinge and vice versa. In CrossFit, many exercises are built upon these two movement patterns. Even though they are simple movements, many people have trouble [...]

Nutrition while traveling

2019-01-26T07:36:40+00:00

A few weeks ago, I posted an article about 'Training while traveling'. Well, that's just part of what a fitness lifestyle engulfs. Having a proper nutrition while traveling can prove itself to be even more of a challenge than exercising while away. Again, we receive a lot of tourists at our gym and many of [...]

Isolation movements in CrossFit

2019-01-26T07:36:47+00:00

CrossFit is synonymous with "Constantly varied functional movements performed at a high intensity". Funtional movements are related to total body exercises, because in life there are very limited occasions in which you will perform an isolation movement. Think about curls, when do you perform a nice, strict, elbows-tight, bicep-only driven curl? Or any other isolation [...]
