  • Athlete of the Week – Jim Hoffmann

    By Leeny Hoffmann | In Athlete of the Week, Blog | on May 5, 2014

    Jim Hoffmann, aka Jimbo, is the obvious choice for this week’s CFStL Athlete of the Week, not because he is my brother-in-law, but because he is an all around awesome guy.  When I come in to teach rowing on M, W, F, I can always be sure that he is there early to set up […]

  • I Can’t do that Anymore!

    By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog | on April 27, 2014

    “I can’t do that anymore” As we age, we naturally lose nearly 1% of our muscular strength per year (on average) after approximately age 45. This age related loss is called Scarcopenia. Individually however, we can beat this average or severely exaggerate this average, largely based upon lifestyle. Muscular degeneration and atrophy don’t just happen […]

  • Paleo Nutrition – this just makes sense!

    By Leeny Hoffmann | In Blog, Diet, Paleo | on April 24, 2014

    You’ve been working hard in the gym and you’ve seen results.  You’ve been steadily getting stronger.  But your clothes still aren’t fitting the way you would like and the PR’s are not coming as quickly as they were. You’ve chalked up that nagging elbow and knee pain to “getting older”.   Guess what…now it’s time […]

  • You Can’t Excercise Your Way out of a Bad Diet

    By Leeny Hoffmann | In Blog, Diet, nutrition, Paleo | on April 17, 2014

    When I started CrossFit back in May of 2007, I was amazed at how my body responded to “this new way of working out”.   Each day was a new experience in soreness that never seemed to go away. Muscles were being worked that had never gotten the call before. Each workout was a new test, […]

  • But I’m not losing weight!

    By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog, Diet, nutrition | on April 10, 2014

    We occasionally have that new member, who’s been with us for 2-3 months, and comes in all discouraged and proclaims, “I’ve been working my butt off for 2 months now, and I’m so frustrated. I have not lost a single pound!” (In fact, they may have actually gained weight.) So we ask the question, “How […]

  • CrossFit WOD Programming

    By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog | on March 19, 2014

    CrossFit Programming We hear it all the time… “The WODs aren’t long enough lately.” “There are too many team WODs.” “We haven’t back squatted in weeks.” “We back squat every week!” “Where did all the bench pressing come from lately?” In reality, we do our best to cover the bases given equipment, weather and strata […]

  • Recovery Pancake

    By admin | In Grain Free, Paleo, Recovery Food | on February 13, 2014

    By Leeny Hoffmann Did I just say “recovery pancake”?  You heard me.  And it’s not because this pancake just came out of the Betty Ford Clinic.  This pancake is good recovery food.  It looks pretty legit, right?  It has a nice brown color, light fluffy texture, and a delicious crumb and chew.  Here’s the good […]

  • Don’t Damper Your Fun on the Erg

    By admin | In CrossFit, Rowing | on February 6, 2014

      by Leeny Hoffmann I often walk into the gym to get the rowers set up for my class, only to find that many of the dampers are set all the way up to 10. This always amazes me because I know what a slog rowing at a 10 can be. I understand that people don’t […]

We jumped in the car and headed to our CrossFit Intro class. We cautiously walked up to the building not sure if the noise we were hearing was […]
