How Can Fish Oil Improve Recovery?

We have all heard that fish oil is good for us, but most of us do not fully understand its importance in exercise recovery.  Yes, exercise is good and we should all be doing it, but we also need to remember that our bodies need help in recovering from it. This is where Omega-3 fish oil comes into play.

Ready for a gut check?

Its no secret that exercise is an important part of this health game we’re all playing, that’s why we’re here and participate.  It is only part of the complexity that makes for a healthy person. The depth of the health and wellness field continues to grow as we interpret new information and understand how it interconnects. One topics that’s getting more attention is gut health. For the most part, we know it’s important, but why?? What is it that we’re actually talking about? And why does it matter to you?

Does Coach Hate Me?

If you know a little about me, you may recall my first experience with CrossFit. It was here at CrossFit Strong and it was definitely interesting. It not only became the reason I love CrossFit but also began my love and understanding of coaching CrossFit.

The workout that day was Fran and although I had done thrusters and pull-ups at 24, I definitely did not know what to expect. As soon as the workout began, I was immediately getting cues from a coach named Gale.

Why I Crossfit

                I vividly remember the first time I walked into Crossfit Strong. All I saw as we first stepped in the door was a mostly empty warehouse with a few ropes hanging from the ceiling, a pull-up rig, and a whole lot of free weights (this was over 6 years ago). There wasn’t a single treadmill, elliptical, or weight machine in sight. I turned to my friend who had brought me and immediately asked him if we could leave. I was truly terrified.

Are you at your best and achieving your "dreams"? Sleep plays a vital role

As adults life can become pretty crazy and complex between work, relationships, kids, family, errands and to just trying to make time for yourself to unwind (what’s that?). A common important part of our lives can suffer: our sleep! You hear the common phrase I’ll sleep when I’m dead but lacking sleep can be extremely detrimental.

Why should I sign up for the Open?

Have you found yourself lately thinking "What is this thing called the 'Open' that everyone is talking about?! Why do the coaches keep encouraging members to sign up?"

The Open is an annual online worldwide CrossFit competition that anyone can participate in over 5 weeks in February and March. Whether you’ve been doing CrossFit for a week or 10 years you can sign up and compete in the Open. Whether you are finally figuring out the difference between a clean & jerk and thruster or you are hoping to string together muscle ups in an Open WOD you can be a part of the Open.

Is your equipment holding you back?

We show up to the gym and take five minutes before the class starts to slip on our gloves/gymnast straps, knee sleeves, lifting shoes and wrist wraps. Then we warm up and workout. Sound familiar? As competitive beings we are all guilty of loading up on whatever equipment we believe will improve our workout times and provide any aid during a tough workout. Countless dollars are spent on equipment that is designed to help us out, but could this equipment actually be holding us back?

 

Here are some types of equipment that may be doing more bad than good:
