I got pretty lucky.  When I was 15, I walked past a gym needing a job.  Within those walls, I found a catalyst into a profession that I am still head-over-heels in love with 15 years later.  I am using dramatic language and I mean every letter.  My job has evolved over the years: I...

There has been a huge rise in people who have chosen a plant based diet over the last decade, for which there are many reasons. Most people choose to go this route for one of two reasons: morality and/or health. I can understand people’s beliefs leaning towards veganism and vegetarianism being a healthier way of...

Change: I have Had a conversation with many in the gym of some decisions I have made which drastically changes how I will be training in the future and the impact it will have on me as a lifter in the sport of powerlifting. The Record Breakers meet was basically a reset button to figure...

Today, I was able to catch up with one of the first coworkers I ever had in my career as a coach.  It was good catching up , and remembering the early days of our careers.  My god, how things have changed for me.  Getting older in itself comes with some maturity, but growing up...

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing” –Teddy Roosevelt   I heard this quote some time ago, and couldn’t decide how I felt about it.  Then, an event happened that...

Venting So we all know, and experienced, what its like to take pre workout and have to run to the bathroom. If not you will be there at some point in your training days, mark my words. Most individuals who train have a higher protein diet than most, with that being said, it is not...

….wrong, PERFECT practice makes perfect! It has been said to us all of our life that, “Practice Makes Perfect”, however, Vince Lombardi quoted that ‘Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.’  I agree. In the Beginning When I began CrossFit, it wasn’t uncommon to see some really janky movements.  If there was...

“David, I…HATE…RUNNING!” I’ve heard it more than once in my time as a trainer. Running is a very polarizing activity. Some people love it, most people hate it, and neither side really understands how the other one can feel the way they do towards it. I once programmed a mile run into the training plan...
