When you start Crossfit you learn how to breathe. Sometimes you have to stop what you are doing and take a breath, or some would call it a gasp. Crossfit has a aerobic flavor and an anaerobic flavor. The metaboic stimulus will vary depending on the athlete's fitness and the strategy to tackle the workout. The key is varied metabolic stimulus with varied metabolic pathways. Marc Rosenthal attends our 12:15 pm class. 3 weeks into Crossfit, Marc is learning how to breathe!

What does all this really mean?

Results Driven!

Rise and Shine

That is what we do Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, even Saturday and Sunday! There is nothing like getting up at 5am most days of the week to train and coach Austin's toughest "everyday" people. And I have to admit, the rise and shine at 5am does not make them normal. A lot of people get up to workout in the morning but the number of people that have not commited to an am workout is many. Hats off to all of you who get up day in and day out for training. I tell my clients that if they want to take it to the next level you will get up for early morning workouts. Try it, let me know if it is working for you.
Have a great weekend! Sleep in a little then go for that jog or weight training session you won't regret it.

Women of CrossFit Central

If you make it out to a Crossfit Class you will defintily here some roaring. These women in crossfit are something. Everyday there is a women challenging their physical abilities and gaining new ground with our program. We have all levels of women that attend Crossfit Classes. One women in particular will be highlighted in todays blog.

Jamie "STAR" Franke.
Jamie started with crossfit central 5 months ago. She began in our outdoor program, north central boot camp. Jamie has attended on a consistent basis for 5 months and has seen tremendous results from doing Crossfit. She began our indoor program in June. Several of us in class came up with the nickname "Star". There is not a class that goes by that she does not work hard and push herself as well as motivate the others to keep up and improve.

I want to encourage all women to rise up and shine like our "Star", she, like many of the other women that attend our program are getting the results that they set out to achieve!

Congrats Jamie, Keep up the AWESOME work! You motivate us all!

Thanks Austin!

Wow! I am honored. I can honestly say that I AM the fittest I have ever been. I would have run circles around myself in college. When your parents tell you "If you only new what I know, you would do choose differently." Well, if I new then what I know now, I would have done it differently. The thing about life, you get a choice and that choice leads you to the next choice. Good or not good, you choose. My choices are what have developed who I am. They have developed the characteristics that I hope inspire others. In my profession as a coach I choose, and the choice for me is simple, work hard, push forward, and never give up!

Today I did "Fran" in 10 min 50 sec. Who is "Fran"? 95# thrusters, pull ups - reps of 21 - 15 - 9. That was one of the hardest workouts I have done, and I have done some hard workouts...what next, I will be back with a 5 min Fran. Any one want to play?
