Sleep and CrossFit


Sleep is, along with nutrition, the base of recovery. If you are training for anything, recovery should be a priority. We beat ourselves up at the gym, but the growing stronger part happens outside of it. The benefits of a good night's sleep are well documented, but how does it affect recovery for CrossFit, specifically? [...]

Managing time


"Time" in today's culture has become one of our most treasured possessions (as if you really could possess time). We want to have time to do the things we want, and also the things we don't want but have to do. And in this struggle between chores and activities, time slips off our hands. We [...]

Post Open Planning


The 2019 CrossFit Open is over. Every year we are challenged by 5 workouts, throughout 5 weeks, that make us push our limits and also show us some weaknesses in our fitness. Often, these struggles are really only shown during the Open. So it's important take a few minutes, look back at it and identify [...]

19.5 Recap


And just like that, the Open in 2019 is over. The last workout was, as it always is, a brutal one. At the end of these 5 weeks, hopefully you were able to improve your fitness, challenge yourself to go a little further, get a few PRs and have some fun! Next week I will [...]

19.4 Recap


The second to last CrossFit Open workout happened last week and it was a burner. So far, we've learned a great deal from the Open and hopefully you've grown as an athlete and as a person through this process. 19.4 was about effort. How hard can you work and how well can you recover. 19.4 [...]

19.3 Recap


This week's CrossFit Open workout was definitely an interesting one. A few movements that we haven't seen in past Open's and a rep scheme that was brutally challenging made 19.3 almost not seem like a CrossFit workout. Like it or hate it, another workout is over and another lesson learned. 19.3 was: --FOR TIME-- 200 [...]

19.2 Recap


Every year during the CrossFit Open, one workout is repeated from a previous Open year. It reflects a big part of what CrossFit is about: Measurements. Testing and re-testing workouts gives us the ability to see whether or not our fitness has improved. You might've gotten stronger, but if you slacked off on conditioning, those [...]

19.1 Recap


Just like last year, for the next 5 weeks, my blog posts will be about the Open workouts. Every year, the Open brings out the best of us. At the same time, it humbles us and shows us what we need to work on. Despite the changes of the CrossFit season, the Open remains the [...]

How to prepare for the CrossFit Open?


As the Open has been approaching, we've been talking about what it is, why you should do it and what it means. The first workout is released this Thursday, when we have our first Open Throwdown. Most of us will get to do the workout on Friday, during regular group classes. Like we talked about [...]
