April 11, 2016

The CrossFit Open 16.4 Strategy

March 18, 2016

Hey all, So this morning I was excited to see a workout I could actually do and get a killer workout from. Unlike 16.3, which involved 7 minutes of cursing the day I ever decided to begin CrossFit, and coming out with absolutely no muscle-ups to show for it, 16.4 is a ‘lovely’ little chipper wod that will also having me cursing the day I ever began CrossFit, but for different reasons entirely.

A very merry fitness holiday in Phuket, Thailand

January 6, 2016

What? Thailand’s iconic fitness street. Where? Phuket, Thailand. When? December 14-29 At the start of 2015, I wrote down a few fitness goals which included running my first half-marathon as well as going on a fitness holiday before the year was up. And while I did the former in March, come December I had yet to go on a proper “fitness” holiday. So, when my boyfriend asked me if I wanted to head to Thailand to train in Phuket’s well-known fitness street, it was a no-brainer. Training, sleeping, eating and sunshine? It sounded like the perfect way to close 2015 while jump starting my fitness goals for the new year.
