  • Consistency Is Key

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on June 5, 2020

    How much work did I do today? How did I feel afterwards, and how ready am I to come back tomorrow and repeat? This is a long game, and you win with consistency, not singular efforts. There is nothing else that matters in the health and fitness game as much as consistency. This goes for […]

    By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog, Lifting | on May 28, 2020

    Our bodies consist of muscles of many types, but breaking it down quite simply, they fall into two categories of what I will call lifters and stabilizers. We could argue that some are for pressing, some are fast twitch, some slow, etc. Let’s agree that this could go many ways, but for the purpose of […]

  • If It Hurts Don’t Do It?

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 27, 2020

    “If it hurts don’t do it” is terrible advice. Have you ever done anything that “hurt” and instead of avoiding it, you justified it by calling it “the good kind of pain”? We all have. So that begs the question, how do you decide the “good pain” from the “bad pain”? Sometimes, the “good pain” […]

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 20, 2020

  • The Grind Continues

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 18, 2020

    The Grind Continues…Try Training Smart During These Hard Times. There is no doubt it takes a degree of mental toughness to train hard, but what about when it becomes the default? Mental toughness doesn’t always equate to physical feats. Often, it’s the opposite. It’s knowing that you can go into training and push beyond limits, […]

  • What Do You Train For?

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 15, 2020

    I sometimes get the question what do I train for. For me it consists of psychological and physical elements. The psychological aspect is forming the habit of showing up daily to put in the work. To willingly chase some discomfort in a world where we are so accustomed to comfort and convenience. Trying to acquire […]

  • The Kettlebell Swing – Power?

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 9, 2020

    The Kettlebell Swing Want to express power? This movement exemplifies the “core to extremity” premise by utilizing a hinge position and allowing the bell to travel through space with the energy our hips have created.
