Your BEAST MODE Is Probably Not That Beastly (aka Does Your Training Actually Warrant Increased Food Intake?)

Posted on June 15, 2017

I often see friends and clients, adjust their food intake due to all the “intense training” that they are doing. Often, it’s training like CrossFit, strength training, weight lifting or something similar. Yet… just because something SOUNDS intense does not actually make it intense. How do you measure “intense”? Do you use objective indicators of

CrossFit Level 1 Certification – the good, the bad and the ugly

Posted on March 17, 2017

The CrossFit Open season is upon us, and this year I chose not to participate for the first time in the last four years. I am still keeping half an eye on it, and even got my 17.3 done at a friendly CrossFit Tarantula in Lecce, Italy. Since I won’t be providing the running commentary

is my inner RACER DEAD?

Posted on September 6, 2016

My business card says: Racer. Coach. Writer. Yet, when I get behind the wheel few weeks ago to start driving to my trail race, I can’t settle in. Usually, I turn on a podcast or an audiobook, or some great music, and half listen, half daydream. This time around, I am pissy. And somewhat resentful.

BOX SLUT – Sever CrossFit (St.Petersburg, Russia)

Posted on July 12, 2016

The question I am often asked is which CrossFit Box I train at. I usually get this question, while at yet another box, and the (erroneous) implication is that I belong somewhere. I am not, however, ready to make that kind of commitment yet. 🙂 I wander in, and waltz out. I date around. My

what do CrossFit t-shirts tell us about CrossFitters?

Posted on July 24, 2015

I have a friend who is fond of saying that he loves CrossFit, he just hates CrossFitters. Ironically, he owns a CrossFit gym. As CrossFit Games are wrapping up, I am remembering attending the CrossFit Regionals last year as a spectator. The heavily muscled thick legged crowd (I belonged! I belonged!) was sipping on Progenex

row, row, row

No, not the boat. Concept 2 rower. 🙂 Last Sunday I attended an Indoor Rowing Clinic at CrossFit Newmarket Central. The biggest lesson from the clinic was the chest positioning during the stroke – apparently, it is supposed to be the exact opposite of what I thought it’d be. I would normally try to round the back

#ShirtStorm @ Atlanta Spartan Sprint: Brand Competition Or Violation Of Personal Freedom?

Posted on March 18, 2015

Shortly after the Atlanta Spartan Sprint took place, the OCR Gear posted the following: “Rumor has it Spartan Race forced a female finisher to change out of her BattleFrog Series shirt before taking the podium in Atlanta. Say what??” Armed with hashtags #shirtstorm and #shirtgate, the online community was livid. This was David vs. Goliath

[…] still talking about the Spartan Race and the competitors’ logos in their photos. Yet another #shirtstorm broke out after the Spartan Race has blurred out the BattleFrog logo from Ryan Atkins’ […]
