10/31/19 - FREE Community Workout Saturday

**Happy Halloween! We Invite You to Class in Costume Today**

 

Believe it or not, this Saturday marks the first Saturday of November! That means you and the entire Los Angeles community is invited for a FREE Community Workout. Things kicks off this Saturday at 9:00am for a special 90-minute session. 

This longer session means that there won’t be a regularly scheduled 10:00am GPP class, so bring a friend for the community vibes at 9:00am. The workout is perfectly designed for students of all levels!

See you there!

I’ll never forget the first time I truly understood the push press. It clicked watching someone else. I learned intensity in CrossFit by observing, too. The first time I did “Fran” I’d been dreading it after watching Mikko Salo do chest-to-bar “Fran” in 2:18 unbroken at a sprint and stay on his feet after. I was ...

Gym Owners on Motivation & Client Finances

2019

The numbers show a strong correlation between client training compliance and their finances. An obtuse amount of students quit gyms all around the country when their credit cards decline. This is a fact that I’ve witnessed for years across gyms on three different continents. This is the scary truth that gym owners kn ...

Can we agree that as performance nears its peak that the margin for error becomes smaller? I’m open to finding an exception, but I’ve yet to find one. After all, there’s much more margin for error in a fun game of bowing with beers and friends than if you’re on the pro tour. On your you likely can’t afford a frame ...

If you’ve done this for any considerable amount of time, you’ll know that it’s not possible without the people. Sometimes the people inspire you to come and other times they give you the kick in the butt you need to get in gear.

The deltoid muscle most simply is the rounded musculature around the shoulder. The posterior portion of the deltoid (the rear delt) is a particularly helpful antagonist to the pectoral muscles; ...

Self-Awareness Training

Oct

2019

Self-awareness is a vital skill. Furthermore, how ironic is it that the skill that signifies our ability to see ourselves as we are to others is self-reported inaccurately by nearly everyone? We all think we’re self-aware. Virtually none of us are, at least to the level we often self-evaluate. While many of us don’ ...
