Behavior vs. Outcome Goal

Western culture approaches achievement in this way: first think of what you want, plan how to get there, execute the plan and then be the thing you want. The process is: think, do, be.

I was looking to change up my work out routine and do something new that would really challenge me. So I decided to give StrengthRx a try. I wasn’t really sure what to expect at first, but I guess what really surprised me was the wide variety of people who go to CrossFit, and how […]

When You Build Muscle, How Much is Too Much?

One of the most common concerns I hear when folks start CrossFit or a strength training program is building too much muscle.  “I don’t wanna be bulky,” or “I don’t want to get too big” are common phrases that tend to be shared primarily women, but I have heard plenty of men say the same […]

The Tortoise Always Wins

Everyone has heard the story of the tortoise and the hare, the African folktale in which an overconfident rabbit is bested in a footrace by the consistent pace of a determined tortoise. The moral of the story is consistency wins the day and that the importance of determination and focus over raw ability should not […]

CrossFit vs Orange Theory, What’s The Difference?

With the advent of new exercise brands and methods, it can be tricky keeping up with the latest trends.  A new kid on the block is Orange Theory Fitness, a franchised exercise class.  While any exercise is better than nothing, it’s important to understand what each modality offers to know what is the best bang […]
