Announcing the Slay the Season Challenge!

Big news today crew. Your coaches have been dreaming and scheming and have we got a deal for you. We’ve been talking about consistency (see Part 1 here and Part 2 here) but we all know that talk is cheap and action saves. So, we’ve devised a holiday challenge to keep you on track with your fitness commitments through the holidays. Not only are we going to help you avoid the holiday slump (and the extra pounds), we are also going to give you the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes. Read on for all the details on the Slay the Season Challenge.

Welcome Ricky!

I promise I will finish Part 2 of the Consistency post here real soon, but I need to interrupt that series for a quick announcement that Ricky is in house! Or, at least he will be on Monday. We are excited to announce that Ricky Frausto has joined our coaching staff and you will be seeing a lot of him starting in December. He will also be here this week helping to cover while Linda is on vacation. Don’t let the intensity scare you…there’s a warm smile buried under there.

Consistency Trumps All–Part 1

As we wrap up the Friday Night Lights series and move into the frenzied holiday stretch, I’d like to talk to you about a topic that I have been thinking a lot about lately. It’s the topic of consistency; specifically as it applies to exercise and nutrition. Increasingly over the years, I have come to believe that the type of workout you do or even the nutrition plan that you follow is less important than how consistently you do it. Whoa, now that’s controversial! Let me explain.

Benchmarks–What’s the point?

Many of you have noticed and a few of you have asked. What’s the deal with the benchmark workouts? Or, haven’t we done this workout before? Or, isn’t CrossFit supposed to be a different workout everyday? Well, you are right on all counts. Today I’d like to take a few minutes to explain how we decide what workouts get repeated, when we repeat them, and why it is important to have benchmarks.

Friday Night Lights–Retro Style

The fall version of the CrossFit Open is upon us. For some of you, this is an important time to test your fitness. For others, it’s a great time to connect with your community, get in some workouts, have some good quality fun on a Friday night. Your coaches and I have tossed around a lot of ways to run the Open this year, and we’ve decided that keeping it simple is the best way to roll. Read on for all you need to know!

Myths and Realities about the Whole Life Challenge

I try not to twist arms around the Whole Life Challenge (WLC), but sometimes, like today, I just can’t help myself. If you aren’t ready to address nutrition, hydration, sleep, and stress in your life, you just aren’t ready. And that’s okay—well, sort of okay. But I am a HUGE believer in the twin powers of community and accountability. As a matter of fact, those make up the very foundation upon which Catacombs is built. I’m also a huge believer in incremental change. You see, crash diets and nutrition fads don’t work in the long term. What does work? Showing up and putting in the work. Every. Single. Day. Which is exactly what the Whole Life Challenge sets us up to do.
