A Quick Way to Connect With Your Clients


Communication - the human connection - is the key to personal and career success. Social awkwardness comes from not being able to relate to people. Around my best friends I'm an extrovert; loud, obnoxious, goofy. Around people I don't know I'm an introvert; quiet, passive, guarded. Owning a business for almost 6 years I've gotten a lot better at communicating with clients on a daily basis even if it's been weeks since I've seen them last. I treat new members as if I've known them for years. Here's a communication trick I learned in a business consulting group that really helped [...]

Shoulder Taps


At the most basic from learning the static handstand hold would be an entry level gymnastic skill before attempting other advanced skills. Moving from side to side is also great for balance and control. Shoulder taps and One handed-handstands are a way to do that. VIDEO LINK

CrossFit Wall Ball Trick to Give You More Reps


In all functional movement there is an eccentric and concentric movement. As it relates to the Wall Ball, a hybrid movement, of front squats and push press,  this is no different. If I was looking for a perfect repetition of the Wall Ball Shot it would include a descent of the Medicine Ball in a rack similar postion-- down to the bottom of the front squat-- followed by an explosive extension out of the squat to a push press where the ball would be released to the 10 foot target. In CrossFit tough workouts are done with great intensity. One repetition at [...]

Deadlift “Butt Squeeze”


If there is one thing that I think most athleteS do wrong in the Deadlift it's this. Backs are flat, feet hip width apart, the setup looks great, but they seem to still complain about tight backs after high load Deadlifts. Why is that? I'm convinced that a great majority of athletes are lifting the bar with their low back muscles versus their big glute muscles. Though the difference is subtle to the average coach there is a major difference in muscle contraction. The easiest way to notice the difference is to stare directly at the hips. If the athlete's hip [...]

The Goal of Fitness Was Never To Get in Better Shape It Was To Be Happy


I want you to really think about this statement. Your goal of improved fitness was really about being a happier person. In the process of getting in better shape you got leaner, stronger, and more physically capable. The by-product of all that hard work was improved body composition. You look better in clothes. The compliments seem to never stop. But in the process of all of that you found yourself still unhappy or worse became more unhappy. I would argue that you either didn't understand the purpose of why you wanted to get in better shape or you lost that purpose [...]

“Unfortunately” is the worst reply an employee can say


This is what happens when companies don’t empower their employees to make decisions on their own. It’s a word that should NEVER be said in the customer service industry. “Unfortunately we don’t do that…” “Unfortunately we can’t refund you…” “Unfortunately I can’t make that decision…” Employees are on the front lines of customer interaction. At times, these interactions involve problem-solving. A customer's steak came out too red, there is a discrepancy in the bill. Whatever the case employees need to be empowered to make decisions to immediately fix the problem. Most cases, the situation can be solved easily if the boss [...]

3 Tips for Aspiring Entrepreneurs


Many friends always ask me how I started my business or inquire on the things they need to do to get started. Here are my top 3 tips from pure experience: 1. You must be passionate about the business you want to start or you won't succeed. I can still remember times at the University of Florida when I was in class secretly reading CrossFit articles while my professor(s) were giving lectures. I spent every waking moment reading and watching everything I could about CrossFit. The house I was renting my senior year was quickly turned into a garage gym. I [...]

Come early, stay late


CrossFit is defined as “constantly varied, functional movement, executed at high intensity”. “ The hardest part of any journey is taking that first step.” Most people fall in love with CrossFit because of the infinite variation. I’ve personally been doing CF for 8 years and I’m still doing workouts that I”ve never done before. I'm allowed to program as creatively as possible. Each workout is completely different from the day before. The only thing that is guaranteed as an athlete, is that the following week's workout will be absolutely different from the one you perform today. That’s the double edge sword. On one hand, this [...]

Sport is CrossFit Untamed


If there is anything that you should ever memorize about fitness it should be what CrossFit Founder, Greg Glassman famously wrote in exactly 100 words: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, Clean and Jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these [...]
