Wodapalooza III: Avoid the Polar Vortex, Go To Miami for WZA

Wodapalooza (WZA) is one of those super intense, sensory overload events that takes me days to process and write about. This year’s WZA was no different…besides Kokoro 25, it was the coolest, most far out, most exhaustive athletic experience I’ve gone through, a step beyond the already exceptional experiences of Wodapalooza I and II. It […]

Thoughts on Kokoro One Year Later

One year ago I  attended Kokoro Camp 25 at US CrossFit. I blogged the following posts about it: After Action Report Training Recommendations Gear and Nutrition I think about the Kokoro experience daily. The tools I’ve gained from the camp I use every day in life and in training. I thought I would write a followup […]

Here’s How I Would Handle the Rowing Event at the CrossFit Games

There were a bunch of announcements for the 2013 CrossFit Games on Monday night, including the surprise announcement of a half marathon row on the Concept2. The row is two scored events, with 100 points available for the top 2000 meter split and another 100 for the 21,097 finish. I think this is a great […]

Wodapalooza II: The Ultra Fest of CrossFit Competitions

Wodapalooza is on it’s way to becoming the Ultra Music Fest of CrossFit competitions, a multi-day carnival of fitness and CrossFitting. At some point in the future, if Guido and company choose to go in this direction, I can see them turning it into the biggest CrossFit-ness event in the world, perhaps second only to […]

Getting Psyched For Kokoro Camp

I haven’t blogged about this, but my buddy Junior and I have been training for months to participate in Kokoro Camp. The date is finally here…we’re leaving for California tomorrow morning and will be at SealFit HQ by Friday at noon. If you haven’t heard of it, Kokoro Camp is a 50+ hour military-style camp […]

Review: Beast Mode Battle 2012

In its second year, Beast Mode Battle (BMB) is hosted by CrossFit Militia of Lauderhill, Florida. BMB boasted 334 competitors, making it one of the biggest regional events of the year. As usual, the men’s side of the house was well represented, with 199 male competitors between the Rx, Masters, and Scaled divisions. The BMB […]

My Three-Year Relationship With CrossFit

I am rapidly approaching the three year anniversary of my relationship with CrossFit. Admittedly, CrossFit has been one of my best girlfriends, except for the part where I don’t get laid and it makes me pass out occasionally. Like with any girlfriend, it has its up and downs. Here are some insights and observations from […]

Masters Champ, Steve Anderson, Out for 2012

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing via email and phone Steve Anderson, the CrossFit Games champ in the masters men 55-59 division. Steve is a TOTALLY AWESOME dude, one of the nicest guys I’ve talked to in the CrossFit community, which is saying a lot because the community is filled with really cool people. […]

Here’s How I Gamed WOD 12.1

The first time I tried it I got 97 reps. That was at seven in the morning when I felt like ass. My knees, quads, and hips were smoked. Pissed, I gave it another go on Saturday morning. Here’s what I did in a bulleted list: Ate two eggs and two pieces of bacon two […]

MAT and Adriana Grassi Article on the Games Site

My second article was published on the CrossFit Games site. Entitled Adriana Grassi Mosley Achieves a Dream, this one is about the serious injuries Adriana overcame to get back to the Games. Adriana competed as an individual in 2008, qualified in 2009 but dropped out due to an impending surgery, and finally made it back in […]
