  • In The Box - Fran

    Fran -Mel v Spider. This was a cracker head to head matchup on a workout that hasn't been down in a great while at BKAthletics. When it was all said and done, 9 seconds separated them at the finish... and you can see the good doctor was well wiped afterwards, relative to Mel. The Solution? To improve Squat Endurance under the barbell...ones Absolute Lower Body Strength (Back Squat, Front Squat , Deadlift 1 RM ) and specifically for Fran the Front Squat. In fact... the key to improving all of CrossFit is to increase your overall bodies strength... then EVERYTHING gets easier:) Wouldn't that be nice ? ....

    Behaviourceutical

    Behaviorceutical
    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 ....
