  • Weight Loss Diet Basics: Part 1

    By Up Top | In BLOG, Nutrition | on May 23, 2016

    Hey High Five! Today we are going to briefly discuss aggressive, but healthy weight loss and why we usually recommend low carb diets to achieve that goal. This is totally healthy and safe for almost everybody, but if you have concerns please speak to a physician first. I am not an expert on genetics or […]

    “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” -No one for long I know I already used the quote above in a previous post, but it’s worth repeating. Sleep is the foundation of our well being and ability to perform day in and day out. We can only go a short time with inadequate sleep before we start […]

  • Your Training Comes First

    By Up Top | In BLOG | on May 9, 2016

    “Sometimes the best way to help others is to help ourselves.” Life can get hectic. For most of us, that is not only true, but a huge understatement. Wearing multiple hats and being many things to many people comes with the territory of modern life (unless we actively fight against it, but that’s another post). […]

    “Beer makes things fun.” -My Uncle Jim The above quote might make my Uncle seem like an irresponsible lush, but he is, in fact, neither of those things. He said this years ago, but for some reason this simple line has stuck with me. Even though I rarely drink beer anymore (if I do drink, […]

    “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” -No one for long. I’m going to jump right into this post, piggybacking off of last week’s blog about rest days. Some people have asked about how to know if you need a rest day or not. Over training can hit people differently, but there are some indicators that are […]

  • “Training”

    By Up Top | In BLOG | on April 18, 2016

    Hey High Five! This is a big topic today, something worth internalizing if we like being healthy and strong and want to keep it going at any age. Coming to the box and working out with your friends is awesome. Hitting PR’s is awesome. Learning new skills like pull ups is awesome. All of these […]

  • Body Composition Thoughts

    By Up Top | In BLOG | on April 11, 2016

    “You are amazing just the way you are. And there is always room for improvement.” There are endless articles, magazines, and sound bites about what is and is not perceived to be attractive/healthy in what circumstances and how we should think about ourselves relative to other people, but the thing that really interests me is […]

    “What is this…new devilry?” -Boromir of Gondor So I was watching a documentary on Netflix last month called “Cooked” by Michael Pollan, a famous nutrition author and spokesman. I had read one of his books, “Food Rules”, but otherwise knew only his name and his status. This documentary series about his new book is incredible […]

  • To Eat, or Not to Eat? That is the Question.

    By Up Top | In BLOG, Nutrition | on March 14, 2016

    “Eating the wrong food for the right reason is superior to eating the right food for the wrong reason.” Several people at the box have asked me to write something on nutrition. As anyone who has spoken with me about this knows, I care tremendously about food and making it and sleep the cornerstones of […]

  • Training Vs. Exercise

    By Up Top | In BLOG | on February 22, 2016

    “Strong people are harder to kill and generally more useful.” Why is CrossFit (conscientiously done) different from normal “fitness”? The easy answer is the intensity of the classes and the demand on the athlete to learn a significant amount of information quickly. These are both true, but there is another thing that truly sets us […]

    “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” Most of us have probably heard the above quote before, and it applies to much more than CrossFit. But today I would like to use it to address […]

  • We don’t go on diets, we improve our lifestyle..

    By Jeb | In BLOG | on October 8, 2015

    You know why diets don’t work?  Because they are impossible to sustain.  If they were sustainable, you wouldn’t “go on” them.  Your diet would just be what you regularly eat, what the word literally implies.  So what if you could optimize your lifestyle?  What if you challenged yourself to make a few better choices and […]
