What is the CrossFit Open?


For many of us, the CrossFit Open was synonymous with the beginning of the "CrossFit season". It meant that an exciting time started, when athletes worldwide would compete for a chance to move on to"Regionals" and possibly the "CrossFit Games". But things changed this year.

Awareness in Fitness


Fitness has forever been embedded in external motivators. Every diet or exercise machine commercial has smiling, good looking and athletic people in it.

Balancing running and CrossFit


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 [...]
