Be Passionate about Something! Be Successful!

I’ve had a few different conversations this week with various people in different areas of my life but there seems to be a recurring theme. Be passionate and you will be successful!

5 Best Stay-Put Crossfit Leggings!

Here we go! I registered for this year’s Open! For those who don’t speak Crossfit this is the first step towards the Crossfit Games which occur every Summer. Obviously, I have no ideas of getting anywhere near the games (ha that’s so laughable I don’t have words), or Regionals but participating in the Open is

Double unders

Let’s Talk Double Unders

So… double unders. This is strange speak for non-Crossfitters. Basically it’s jumping rope where the rope passes under your feet twice for each jump. This can be a daunting task for many a crossfitter. It takes lots of practice and can be one of the most frustrating things you try to learn. It’s just not
