The second miracle of CrossFit.


The other day while doing some shopping at the commissary on Edwards AFB, I glanced at my phone while pushing a cart in the vegetable isle. I caught a post on Facebook, which detailed a lawsuit between the Sportsgrants (Fight Gone Bad) folks and CrossFit. I read the entire lawsuit while my wife shopped and when finished, instantly formulated my own opinion (of course).

CrossFit the next Globo Gym?


Any venture whether it be fitness related or not, must grow, or it becomes stagnant and eventually dies. CrossFit is no exception, and as anyone can tell you, is growing by leaps and bounds. In just a few short years it has catapulted onto the fitness stage and taken the world by storm. From major endorsement deals, to commercials now running on national TV, it is everywhere. The question is, at what cost?

No exercise during retirement equals an early grave.


The other day I had a conversation with my dad, which got me thinking. Well it wasn’t as much of a conversation as a statement he made. I asked him when he was going to start CrossFit. Without hesitation he told me with a smile, I’m retired, I’ve worked my whole life, and now I’m gonna enjoy it. I’m gonna eat what I want, and do whatever makes me happy.

Child dies from common cold.


Yep it’s a sensational title and no it’s not true, but what if it did happen and you could have prevented it? That’s right you, the one with the cold, the cough or the flu. The person that thinks that it’s ok to spread your cooties around without a care in the world. The one who doesn’t care about others and the disease you are spreading.

Please forgive the graveyard of empty comments we're using a new commenting system.


As many of my loyal readers may have noticed (All two of you), I have made drastic changes to the site over the last few months.  One of the main reasons is that we were using a blog platform (MyBlog) by a company called Azrul. The blog component worked seamlessly with Joomla our core website CMS. The problem was that I wanted to update Joomla to a newer version, which meant moving from Joomla 1.5 up to Joomla 1.7.  This was no easy feat because all of our content, components and modules were built around the older Joomla 1.5 version and Azrul didn’t yet have a MyBlog version for Joomla 1.7.

You’re not gonna get in shape because it’s to painful, takes you out of your comfort zone and you don’t have the discipline


So last week was my fortieth birthday. Yep the big 40 I had a great party (Mostly Family) when it dawned on me, I don’t have that many friends. In fact I can actually count the number of true friends on one hand. Sure I have lots of acquaintances, or friends of convenience as I call them. You know, it’s convenient for them to be your friend when it suits them or they need something. I can’t point fingers though because for the most part I don’t give much in the term of friendships either. I guess the reason is because I don’t have the time for to many close friendships. With work, a very large family and everything that comes with it, I’m usually pretty busy and would have to give up other stuff to make time for all the stuff  “friends” want to do or need. I’m sure others out there can relate.

If you want to show off your CrossFit affiliate or favorite CrossFit athlete here is your chance.


This past week has kept me pretty busy preparing for Halloween. During that time it got me thinking about the blog and topics for my posts. Sure I get a decent number of views, but the focus is mostly me, me, me and I think the addition of you, you, you would be great. So I came up with a pretty cool idea or so I think, but I’d like to have your input first.

Twenty one random thoughts ranging from the strange to the bizarre.

 

 

 


 

  1. Evolution is a myth because there are to many dumb people around for it to be true.
  2. I don’t have many friends, because I don’t like to many people.
  3. Nothings better than coming home to a great wife and kids.

Some great articles that you might have missed during my CrossFit early days.

Because I’ve been so busy this week I totally forgot to write a full article! Sure I update with small tidbits now and then, but like clockwork I like to publish a main article once a week.  Well I forgot! So I began scrambling for a topic and I had a genius idea, well maybe not a genius idea but a decent one, I’d re-introduce old articles. Great idea huh? No it’s not? Wait don’t leave, read on!

I’ve been at this blog stuff for a while and have written a bunch of articles, some of which are buried so deep in the site they’ll never see the light of day again. Sure there are the most read articles on the right side of the page, but what about other not so fortunate articles?
