Spiralizer

Hey friends! We are going to start getting more updates to you all on the goodies that we eat regularly, but I want to shout out one of my favorites since the holiday season is coming up and everyone could use a nice cheap awesome gift. Lo and behold, there is a contraption from the heavens to create noodles out of vegetables.
I. Love. This. Thing.
Feast (pun intended) your eyes on the spiralizer:

So go ahead and ask for one for yourself and buy one for your mama (I am, and probably my sister […]

An Interview with Mike and Chris

Mike Hartz and Chris Page both started their fitness journey a week before Thanksgiving of last year, which as we all can appreciate, is an incredibly tough time to moderate your “unhealthy food” intake with two awesome food related holidays right around the corner!  Both Mike and Chris were looking for general health and fitness when they joined – and they have increased their work capacity ten fold.  Chris mentioned to me that he enjoys not being out of breath after climbing a set of stairs; and from his starting point, I will call that a success seven days […]

An Interview With Chance

(I hope you know how hard it is not to have an amazingly cheesy pun for the title here)

 

Chance Fitch  joined GrowStrong at the beginning of the summer after his first year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  His younger brother had been a member and was looking to increase his athletic prowess to help with his wrestling career – but Chance was looking for something different.  At University, he had gained the standard “Freshman 15″…. and some extra (his words, not mine!).  If I recall correctly, his explanation was something to the effect of “well, my […]

Prescription For A Great Life

Prescription for a Great Life

 

When we opened GrowStrong CrossFit, our purpose wasnt about producing elite athletes to compete at the CrossFit Games.


And it still isnt.

 

Yes, we want you improving your fitness and hitting PRs regularly, but our mission is so much bigger than that.

 

Our intention has, and always will be, to help others achieve lifelong fitness. To help the 40-year-old feel confident and fit enough to join a basketball league. Or to help the overweight woman in […]

Coach’s Corner continued

Since I was so long winded with the question on Milton Friedman, you have the enjoyment of a part two to Coach’s corner.

So… onward!

Macie McNichol (note this was the question that spawned these two posts)

“What kind of music do you like?”

First off let me give a big “thank you” to Good Buddy Isaacc for really helping me refine my music tastes as long as we have been friends.  It’s not that I liked Nickleback before then (I didn’t), but he has really helped me to move outside of the box that I grew up in.  Still can’t stand Nirvana, […]

Coach’s Corner

So a few days ago I got asked “What kind of music do you like?” and after a quick minute of conversation, including some replies of “no, never heard of ’em”, I concluded that in order for me to answer I would also need to provide listening methods… And here we are!  Included is a few   more questions that I got from Facebook.  I’ve provided answers to the best of my ability with minimal amount of Googling, and have included plenty of self-commentary along the way.  Questions are copy and […]
