9/22/17 - Workout to Support Houston Saturday

Our friends in Houston, Texas are suffering from a catastrophic once-in-a-thousand-year storm. With more that fifty-two inches of rain, the city is overwhelmed and we want to help. Part of the destruction includes dozens of community based gyms just like DEUCE who will not being able to return to business without outside help. 

Several of our brother and sister gyms in Texas are stepping up to do something about it, and we’re throwing our hat into the ring, too. We’re following the strong lead of CrossFit Central, Behemoth CrossFit, Trinity Restorative Care, and CrossFit Redefined who have boots on the ground.

This Saturday we are inviting the greater community to come out, train with us, and support this important cause. We will be taking donations both electronically to the event’s GoFundMe  and cash on site. DEUCE Gym will match any donations received Saturday, so don’t be bashful.

Can’t make it but still want to help? Please DONATE HERE!

Over the last several years, I've become increasingly obsessive of high performers. I want to be around it. I want to know it and live it. In an effort to do so, and to create some remarkable memories along the way, I've started a habit when overseas. You see, the Michelin group put the United States on timeout because we c ...

A large part of our coaching responsibility in class is creating a context around the day. The workout of the day can be applied to each athlete, but it may look very different to the untrained eye. The key to the whole equation is the relative fitness of each athlete. Each person has the need to squat. It's easy to imagine ...

There's a certain avoidance that happens with fitness. It's funny. Those that don't do most literally it avoid it. They explain away their training, either by saying they don't need it for one reason or another or by justifying why they can't for one reason or another. At the heart of this avoidance is the truth. The truth ...

Yet, if you listen to a fitness coach, it might sound like every other position is ideal depending on your activity. So, what gives?I’ll never ...

When it comes to the human mind's understanding of how things happen in the world, there is an ax cleaved down the middle of two fundamental approaches. On one side we have determinism, which goes on to say that all outcomes are caused by uncontrollable external forces. It says our fate is in the stars, so to speak. In that ...
