Getting workout gear and other stuff you want and nothing you don’t


The holidays are quickly approaching and if you’re like me you get pretty excited. It’s the time for family, friends and of course gifts. I don’t have to many hobbies or interests. Electronic gadgets, camera stuff and of course workout gear about cover it. The problem I’ve always have is explaining to people what I need or want. Try telling someone you really want the Canon 72-200mm 2.8 lens. What usually happens is I you end up getting something else because the person buying tells you something like “ I didn’t want to get you the wrong thing”, so I got you this.

The reason I did not write a post the last few weeks.






Well I didn’t have time the last few weeks to write any articles. To make a long, long, long story short my wife went into labor on July 6, 2012. Twenty-three hours later, a very larger than expected baby boy was born. Lawrence Edward Fischer IV (Eddie) weighed 9.7lbs and was 22in long. The following morning prior to leaving the hospital Eddie had several chocking episodes where he turned blue and had to be admitted to the NICU. In conjunction with the choking episodes Eddie developed a bad case of jaundice, which kept him in the NICU longer than expected.

Win some Chalk and a Super fast update about what’s been going on.


I need some serious help in many departments, which became more evident after attempting to compete in the games open. In knew going in that I lacked a bunch of the skills needed to compete on any level, but I honestly had no idea how much help I really needed. I guess the whopping 65 burpees and the inability to do more than two horrible snatches at 135lbs was my final clue.

Forging Elite Whining


OMG! Yep I used a term I thought I’d never use in an article but in this case it’s appropriate. Most of the time when I speak with anyone involved in the CrossFit community, I sort of feel like an outsider. I work out alone, I don’t belong to any one box and so here I am, an impartial, although non-silent observer of all things CrossFit. I call stuff as I see it, and yes sometimes that offends people. I’m ok with that though, because sometimes people just have to hear things that might make them uncomfortable.Occasionally when I offend a reader I might be told what to do, how to do it and usually with what body part to do it with. Normally I receive these instructions via email. Anonymity is the weapon of choice for these electronic warriors. You see, they feel strong enough about their position that they’re compelled to speak out, but no so much that they want others to know their true identities. They shield themselves behind their fake online personas and dish out rhetoric without having the guts or balls to put their good name on the line.
