Nitro Coffee: Hipster Hype or Real Benefits?
Known as the “Immortal Health Elixir” by the Chinese and originating in the Far East around 2,000 years ago, kombucha is a beverage with tremendous health benefits.
Now serving Kombucha at CrossFit Gig Harbor. But what is it? Find out here...
You have NO IDEA how much you’re leaving on the table by not tracking your diet, do you?
Real knowledge is about taking action. And this particular action of “dropping everything” works at three distinct, body-strengthening, life-changing levels.
Begin and discover for yourself.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
These are the 20, or so, Podcasts from Barbell Shrugged that are absolute must listens.
My advice is to not worry about being wrong. Instead, do the work. Push the ball forward. Get far away from your sacred cows. The rest will take care of itself.
If you take this advice you can change your life. You can become very, very strong.
This "Life Hack" crap is stupid... throw it all out!
There are no shortcuts or hacks when it comes to building strength and muscle, and there are certainly no hacks to loosing weight and keeping it off, or getting to whatever level of fitness you hope to achieve.
YOU EARN WHAT YOU PUT IN WITH DEDICATION ON CONSISTENCY!
So make a decision. Take care of your own life or sit around bitching how hard everything is and how everything is someone else’s fault.
It’s your life.
If 20 bucks or 60 minutes a day is what is preventing you from reaching your goals, get a new job or set an alarm clock. You have to make time for it. No goal was ever attained by just thinking about. No amount of dreaming gets your ass in shape.
1) Drink only water
2) Eat Every 2.5 to 3.5 hours
3) Eat Enough Protein
4) Little to no sugar
5) No pasta, no bread
The back squat is one of the most primal lifts. It’s also the first contest at any powerlifting meet, as it takes the most effort, the most precision, and the most guts.

It's a new year at CrossFit Gig Harbor
What Do I Fear?
I fear stagnation and lack of progress.
I fear never reaching my potential and being average.
I fear being forgotten...the past...yesterdays news.
I fear giving up and being passed by, going softly into that good night.
I fear letting those I love down, letting myself down.
I fear settling, giving in to the "that's, just the way it is, mindset.
I fear dying without leaving my mark.
I fear not feeling these fears anymore and just floating alone.
These fears feed me, they nourish my drive.
I love my fear.
We are often times ruled by unyielding expectations, false assumptions, stubborn default settings, or just a general lack of awareness. Sometimes all you need to make incredible progress in your life is to simply break old patterns of behavior that have you chained up at a low altitude.
YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU SAY YOU ARE, YOU ARE WHAT YOU DO
ITS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT HOW HARD YOU CAN PUSH BUT ITS ABOUT YOUR PACE
"Nothing worth keeping happens all at once. You don't want it easy."
"When you quit trying to be something all the time you can become what you’re supposed to be."
The second common criticism: kipping pull-ups are dangerous and harmful to the joints. Well, sure - if you suck at them.
CrossFit will awaken something inside of you, and the feeling is addictive and amazing.
