Welcome Baby Ryder!

If you have been training in the evenings then you most likely have met or seen Cassie H., she until recently was one pregnant bad ass woman. I mean not very many pregnant women hop up on rings and hold L-sits at 5 months pregnant. Impressive! On June 9th Cassie and her husband welcomed Ryder Andrew into their family. Ryder was 8 pounds 10 ounces and was 22 1/2 inches long. Both Cassie and Ryder...

Games Departure and Last Chance for Shirts

The time has come!  I’m heading down to Carson, CA for the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games.  I’ve been training since September with all of you guys by my side at some point or another…either sweating it out with me, cheering me on or giving me a “pick-me-up” when I most needed it.  You may not even realize that you helped me, but just the consideration of asking how...

Leslie’s 65th Birthday Blowout

Monday July 2, 2012 marked a special day in someone’s life.  This special day belonged to Leslie Wright who turned 65 on this day.  It was very special as I wrote the number 65 numerous times on the board.  We heard moaning and groaning until I explained to the 10 AM crew that the workout was done with a partner.  Then frowns, got turned upside down!  The way it should be on...

Hit the Trail Running (or Walking or Riding)

We all are familiar with the famous saying “hit the trail running” for a metaphor.  Well, this time I’m wanting you to take it in a literal sense.  I’ve written blogs about this in the past, but it never hurts to have a bit of reminder.  The weather the next few weeks is supposed to be WAY cooler than it has been here in Chico.  The first day of summer was just a few...

The Lost Art of the Home Cooked Meal

“Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” True… but only if he can cook. Food is always on my mind… I can’t help it. I love to eat, and as anyone who’s eaten with me knows, I can put away quite a lot of it, and fast. Funny enough, as much as I enjoy eating, I love cooking more. It’s fun and...

I Don’t Cheat.

No, really… I don’t cheat. I do drink alcohol, go wine tasting on occasion,  eat jar(s) of almond/sunflower seed butter,  chocolate covered macaroons, dark & white chocolate bars, corn tortilla chips, corn tortilla tacos, dried fruit, chocolate covered bacon, sweet potato (fries, chips… just about anything sweet potato), and none of it I consider...

The Bottle Bar and Their Support

Seems a bit strange to see a post entitled “The Bottle Bar” on a site that promotes health, fitness and good nutrition.  But don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  The Bottle Bar is one of the craftiest ideas to come to Chico and has no negative connotation to it at all!  What you put in your “bottle” is your decision…but it better be gluten free and low...
