FIRE IT UP FRIDAY! PR Friday 5/2/14

By There are no tags 0 comments

Fire it Up Baby! This has been a tough week of training. The tempo squats were brutal and fun at the same time. Only a CrossFitter would combine “brutal” and “fun” in the same sentence. This upcoming week is promising to be just as challenging in a totally different way. More on that later…Shirtless Bob was so fired up he sent me this pic from the CrossFit in Rome!

PROGRAMMING

This upcoming week’s programming: I have been testing out the next week’s programming for the last few weeks. I did this regularly when I first started out but it has been some time since I had done as frequently as I have been. I started doing this again so that I can better communicate to my coaches and interns what it felt like and the flow of the class should be, etc. This will allow them to better communicate to you as a member what to expect, how to scale, where to push and where to back off. Let me know what you think.

    Let’s start with a regret. I wish I had gotten off my ass and joined CrossFit Boston a year ago. Fitness-wise, it had been a rough year since I got out of the Marines and started at HBS (Harvard Business School). Not that I wasn’t working out at all, but what I was doing wasn’t [...]

Every new kid I have the opportunity to coach brings to our community a new perspective. Ashley is a young lady who at 10 years old is already competing in triathlons and is a [...]
