    In late 2007 I fell in love with CrossFit and when I wanted to start an affiliate, I thought long and hard about our name... I will never forget the moment it came to me like an Epiphany....

  • Personal Training in Fairfield - BKAthletics - Behaviourceutical


    n. A physical activity that improves mental health, particularly by reducing stress or anxiety. It’s a fusion of “behavior” + “pharmaceutical.” It was created by Kelly Lambert, a neuroscientist at the University of Richmond: I made up this term called “behaviorceuticals,” instead of pharmaceuticals, in the sense that when we move and when we engage in activities, we change the neurochemistry of our brain in ways that a drug can change the neurochemistry of our brain.
    I’d never heard this word before, but I love it! It speaks directly to the power of behavior change for preventing and reversing disease. ....

  • Fairfield Fitness Fun

    For 9 Years I have had a coach design my CrossFit Training. Initially I had Aimee Anaya at Catalyst Athletics, then moved onto James Fitzgerald ( original 2007 CrossFit Games Champ) and James was my personal coach for around 5 years. In those 5 years I learnt a ton from him and then moved onto his brother Mike at OPT in Canada for the last 2 years. During the recent CrossFit Games Masters Qualifier, I had a feeling just before the event of 'I can't wait for it to be over' and this is a feeling I have NEVER HAD in my whole life. This is not normal for me as I LOVE TO COMPETE and am always in a positive state and looking forward to whats ahead. In retrospect, it was all over before it even ....

  • Kipping Pullup

    We have some slo mo action here of three ladies doing Kipping Pullups. The one thing that can be addressed with all for more power and better Rhythm, is keeping the knees straight on the back swing and making sure the toes are pointed , which keeps your ass tight. Bending the knees on the Forward Swing (arch) essentially 'leaks energy' and makes the transition to the Back Swing (Hollow) less potent and doesn't get you higher and closer to the pullup bar with straight arms ( which is why we kip) before initiating the actual pull with your Arms. ....
