The WOD, or workout of the day. It varies from gym to gym but for CrossFit, it means doing 3-5 different “workouts” (not including any strength training) all in one day. For example, at the beginning of the workout might be an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) on 1 arm pushups; then throw in 15 body weight snatches; next the same thing with pullups; and finish up with handstand push ups (hence the end game is always a wall walk). Each different movement gets its own name making it difficult to compare workouts across gyms.
Crossfitters are not only competitive but they set goals that may appear reckless to other athletes… Do you have your eye on a championship?
In 2010 I competed in my first CrossFit Games – Level 1 division which is where most people start their journey as a competitor. In 2011 I competed National level competitions as well as regionals and was selected as a master athlete for Region 8. In 2012 I competed at another national competition known as Open Nationals and placed 2nd overall in my age group! Last year however I decided to take breaks from competing so it hasn’t been a priority since 2013 till now.
What do you think CrossFit needs to change about itself so more women will be attracted? As someone who has tried diving into these type of fitness programs before – how do you feel they help/hurt women’s health?

In the 1800’s it was common for meat to be dry-aged. In those days, refrigeration wasn’t as widespread as it is now, and the only way to age meat was by weathering – which meant putting it outside in a shed or warehouse – allowing bacteria and wild yeast to attack it from within – causing a natural process of decay and thereby creating an incredibly tender piece of meat. Since you can’t exactly do that with a steak today, our method of dry ageing doesn’t involve hanging sad carcasses outside in the cold. So what does that have to do with CrossFit? If you try your first class at a big box affiliate gym, these folks will often let you drop out if you really need to go find out who Geoff Tate is. Or worse, if we don’t see some major “bench marks” on your second attempt…at least we know they aren’t going easy on us to help productivity…right? You should never be embarrassed about stopping or failing anything! Your body and strength levels might not be where you want them yet (yeah I said it)…that’s ok; but stop worrying about someone thinking badly about you because they know those things won’t ever come up again! After all – why even show up for work if you’re just going through the motions? Get to work or get started now before disaster strikes again (or goals are crushed). The point isn’t that we take
On Running Review: The world’s lightest trainers
. #4 adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 AQ2851 The Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 grabs the Number Four spot because it feels like running in nothing but air. The mesh upper is made of a material that wraps around your feet and your arch, creating what seems like an endless amount of flexibility, while adidas’ Phylon midsole adds to its bounciness. On the bottom of the shoe, you’ll find what appears to be extra cushioning thanks to the Hexalite technology, which uses an environmentally-friendly gel compound. Pair it with some shorts for optimal airtime or dress up in something more formal for work. If you are able to snag this one early on you can score it at closeout prices since they are constantly changing colorways and never seem to go out of stock! Size Note: These run small so size up half a size from your regular size! You want all your toes room because these shoes don‘t have any heel support whatsoever! Get them originally during one of their release periods where they drop low prices and then even better after everyone runs out get them online or through friends!! They really have no issue being resold so get them when available!!! Enjoy Your Airborne Journey!!
