7/31/15 - Last Day to Register: CF Strongman Seminar

**No Skills and Drills Saturday**strongman

Tomorrow, Saturday August 1st, we’re fortunate to play host to the CrossFit Strongman Trainer Course at DEUCE Gym. You need not be a coach or a trainer for the seminar and it’s as hands on as you’ll see in the specialty course seminar list.

Rob Orlando and I will lead the seminar on our home turf where athletes and coaches can expect to learn how to flip a tire, use the stones, kegs, yokes, farmers handles, and the log.

Today’s the last day to register.

If I were to toot our own horn a bit, I'd say DEUCE Gym does a great job at disarming seemingly audacious training. Barbells can be scary. Working out with chains? For most people, that seems insane. Yet, somehow, we're able to show and tell our students that this is for everyone.Part of this context of accessibility and sa ...

One significant stage in human development is recognizing that others can, and often do, have different perspectives. This realization usually (/hopefully) comes at a young age, when we realize that our world is being shared with other people who have their own version of the tale.In addition to this stage in development is ...

Nothing makes sense without context. It's been said that knowledge with context is true wisdom, while knowledge without it is just information.What if I told you that a piece of dessert is just as fruitless nutritionally for everyone and anyone who eats it? What if I told you that consuming a piece of dessert, however, has ...

I am decently proud of being a pretty low maintenance individual. I grew up as an only child, later to have adopted siblings, but for the most part my young life I was fending for myself. I got pretty comfortable this way. This past year has contained a gaggle of life experiences. I have never been so fortunate in such a sh ...

I hope you have noticed Horatio and Veronica! If you are not local, you probably have no Earthly idea what I am talking about. We at DEUCE Gym have a very eclectic community of humans. We also have two pet flamingos that roam. Well, they stand in the jungle of shrubbery in the parking lot/strongman palace of dreams/garden o ...

"What will your children remember? Moments spent listening, talking, playing and sharing together may be the most important times of all."-- Gloria GaitherThis quote hits me for a pretty obvious reason. But, I think it rings true for most of us regardless of parenthood. We work hard to achieve a lot of things in this life. ...

Yesterday's DEUCE Day at lululemon Santa Monica was a hit. Amongst the crowds, Caveman Coffee mint juleps, and coconut ice cream from Kippy's, the store was buzzing with energy. Much of this energy surrounded the fourteen and a half foot tall "High Striker" of carnival fame, where the participant swings a giant hammer with ...
