My Advice…..SHUT UP!!!

If what you’re about to say is about someone else and it’s in a negative light don’t waste your breath or my time. it’s always easier to point fingers and blame others. We only have 24 hours in a day and I want to be building up and supporting everyone….. yes….. everyone! Good bad indifferent […]

We’re ALL screwed up
We're ALL screwed up

If there’s one thing I am 100% sure of, it’s that we’re ALL screwed up…… The best thing I could have ever done for Coca CrossFit is pushing our culture towards recognizing this.  We all have have fears.  Those things we’re afraid that if our friends found out they would judge us and maybe we […]

Stop worrying about other people
Stop worrying about other people

One thing I’ve learned in 7 years of blogging is that people will ALWAYS talk!  Regardless of what you do they are going to talk.  It’s sad but true. Over my years of sharing my life/story/opinion people always disagree with me or get upset about what I say.  They send me nasty emails about how […]

I clean my own gym
I clean my own gym

I remember seeing a video put out some time ago by Greg Glassman that said you should never let you members see you doing anything but coaching.  You’re the professional and there for should always be seen in a professional way. While I certainly understand what he’s saying, I see no problem with letting your […]

You should get paid….
You should get paid....

One trend I’ve seen in the CrossFit world forever has been this whole ‘if you coach you get a free membership’ method of payment. I am all for loving your community so much you just want to pay it forward and coach, but what’s wrong with loving what you do AND getting paid to do […]

Why I blog?
Why I blog?

Many people blog for many different reasons, and I’ll tell you why I do….. It’s to externalize what I would normally internalize.  It’s my corner of the world where I can share how I feel about any situation without a filter. Too often we worry about being so perfect or better or right or fitting […]

Note to self….
Note to self....

JUST BREATH!!!! So today I got talked into doing the filthy fifty (GROSS)! That wasn’t the problem, although I wanted to vomit 4 burpees into the set of 50, the problem was the damn double unders.  It is one of the few movements that still bug my knee, and what did I do at the […]

Longevity or The Open?
Longevity or The Open?

It has been a LONG weekend – going back and forth and back and forth about The Open. Of course the first wod is double unders…….really?  I knew they would show up eventually, just was hoping my knee would be in a better place. I haven’t done double unders in my personal wods because it […]

To Open…but am I REALLY ready?
To Open...but am I REALLY ready?

We are fully aware that the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games season is in full swing.  Once a week athletes all over the world will push themselves to the brink of passing out to see where they rank in their ability.  And at the end of 5 weeks some will move on to the next phase, […]

Culture is EVERYTHING!
Culture is EVERYTHING!

What makes one gym different than another…….. The space? The equipment? The programming? The coaching? Sure those are all different, but what really makes or breaks a gym is the culture. I have run Coca CrossFit for 3 1/2 years now and in that time I’ve learned A LOT about who we are and more […]
