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

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’ […]

15.1 is done

Posted on February 28, 2015

“This is stupid”, I am thinking to myself, as I start putting on workout clothes. The Friday Night Throwdown is from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at my box – every Friday for five weeks. And it is a BIG DEAL. My box is one of the larger (and better, I may add) boxes in the country
