4th of July WOD!!

4th july crossfit WOD

Happy 4th everyone!!! I typically skip WODs that come on holidays because it always seems that those are the days with crazy hero workouts. You know…when you run for 5 miles before you even start the main part of workout or you do 200 burpees for time as a cash out. Yeah, no thanks. I […]

My First Two-A-Day

For a couple weeks now my husband has expressed a desire to start adding a two-a-day to our week, meaning we do two CrossFit workouts/classes in the same day, either back to back or separated by a couple hours. Well, when I was in Detroit for the auto show earlier this week he decided to […]

CrossFit = Loads of Fun

Black iron kettlebells

Had another great today. I literally bounded out of bed to get ready for the gym which is kinda unusual for me but it was one of my “favorite trainer” days. My seven year old son was not so enthused though and told me he “doesn’t feel like going to the gym today.” Ha! I bribed […]

Cemented My Vote & My WOD

Today’s WOD was named “Cement”. Not sure why. Also not sure why yesterday’s was named “Political” when today was voting day. At any rate, I got my WOD on this morning (wore my new CFNA tee!) and then went to vote. I was in an out in 10 minutes! The WOD was deceptively tough. I […]

Finally Nailed That L Sit – Sort of

Gymnastic Rings

We got to the box a bit early this morning. Hubby took to the rollers and to chatting. I decided on a whim to start my day feeling like a total failure by doing an L sit on the rings…except I didn’t fail. Only last week I attempted this and was not even able to […]
