We spent the first 30 minutes working gymnastics skill movements – handstand holds, ring dips, and pull-ups. When it came time for the met-con, gym owner Greg Adams started dragging stuff out into their huge parking lot and Dallas kept avoiding my eye contact. At that point, I knew I was in trouble. Whole9 readers, meet The Prowler. […]
We’re about a week out from the completion of our Road Trip Whole30, and it’s time to start thinking (and talking) about what some of you are going to do when your 30 days are up. More on this topic as the big day approaches, but today we’d like to hit on a question reader Diana posted on our site last week. Diana wrote: […]
We started our Whole30 the day we left the Keys, but that doesn’t mean we indulged too much while visiting Captain Tom and Susan. We spent most of our days eating fresh fish, caught right off the back of the Urban Renewal. The last night of our visit, we decided to leave the fish to the Captain, but prep the rest of the meal ourselves, using fresh and local ingredients. Enter Dallas’ on-the-spot creation – Summerland Mango Salsa. […]
On our way out of Texas, we stopped at a road-side picnic area just west of Fort Stockton, ready to get our sweat on. With only a few truckers to keep us company, we set up our rings, mapped a sprint course and set our KBs up for action. […]
We like to take some comments on the site “Main Page”, if we feel there’s a good question, commentary or lesson to be learned. And yesterday, we received a comment from Susan that hit home – and spoke to one of the most important reasons why we created and continue to promote the Whole30 program as a way to “change your life in 30 days”. The comment is as follows: […]
Today’s post is dedicated to a fabulous friend of ours, and the best hostess in Austin – Melissa “Melicious” Joulwan. Melissa has been a client and a friend for almost a year now, and is both a nutritionally savvy blogger and a fabulous cook in her own right. She runs the blog The Clothes Make the Girl, ruminating on everything health, fitness and food related. If you haven’t subscribed to her feed already, her blog is a must-read.
Day Five of our Whole30 program on the road, and things are going really well. We’ve driven through the Keys, up through Florida to the panhandle (where we had an awesome workshop co-hosted by Lightning CrossFit and CrossFit Fort Walton Beach), and then on through Alabama, Mississippi and now, Louisiana. […]
This post is a call to arms for those of you who have completed a Whole30, attended one of our workshops, worked through our intensive four week consulting program. This is a place for you to sound off and make yourself heard […]
When you’re on the road, you take every opportunity you can get to eat, sleep and train as well as possible, which often means making the best of a less than ideal situation.
Yesterday, we woke up feeling the need to pick up something heavy. Since there aren’t any CrossFit gyms in the Keys (seriously!) and all we have with us in terms of weighs are a couple ofkettlebells, we headed up to the local “box” – Pirate Wellness Center. […]
We woke up in the Keys to winds blowing too hard to go fishing, so we decided to hit a quick and dirty met-con down by the water. While those “kitchen sink” WODs can be fun to program, including 17 different movements and complicated rep schemes isn’t necessary for an effective, high intensity workout. […]
