Come join us on Saturday, Jan 11th @ 11 am as we discuss so many aspects of nutrition! This is a free seminar open to members and the public. Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity!
"I don't have enough time to cook healthy meals." Have you heard this excuse? Maybe even used it yourself? Healthy meals do not have to take hours. This teriyaki bowl of cauliflower rice, broccoli, carrots, peas, and chicken took about 20 minutes to prepare and cook, and it made several meals like the one pictured. You can do this! Skip the fast food and take the time to feed your body with what it really wants.
To find out more about making a healthy lifestyle doable for you, come join us this Saturday, January 11th @ 11am for our nutrition seminar! #nutritionworkshop #healthylifestyle #healthydoesnthavetobeboring #comejoinus #cauliflowerrice #fuelyourbody
Just a few things our coaches are eating today: (1) pancakes with coconut flour pancakes, almond meal, eggs, banana, topped with ghee and cinnamon and a few raspberries (2) Power smoothie - kale, ginger, avacado, mango, blueberries, cucumber, beets, celery, chia seeds, collagen peptides, raw cacao powder, dark leaf stevia (3) spinach base with chicken, and a wide assortment of veggies found in the fridge. Sprinkle of goat cheese, pecans, and a little balsamic. Aldi sale finds make the best thrown together mixtures! (4) salad for snack with mango, blueberries, strawberries, avocado, pecans, and cranberries
What's your plans today? Don't let life's busy schedule keep you from loving your body and fueling it right #fuelyourbody #loveyourbody #healthylifestyle
Apparently Monday nights are for spaghetti for our coaches @theellegee and @kaylahuney7 🍝Two different versions of spaghetti but both oh so healthy! The left is spaghetti squash noodles and the right is black bean protein noodles. Yum! To find out more about making a healthy lifestyle doable for you, come join us this Saturday, January 11th @ 11am for our nutrition seminar! #nutritionworkshop #healthylifestyle #healthydoesnthavetobeboring #comejoinus #spaghettisquash #blackbeannoodles
Coach @theellegee getting her week started off right by meal prepping to make the rest of the week a breeze🙆♂️ $120 of food that will feed 2 people for 7 days! That's a win!
Do you have ways to make your week easier?
Come join us this Saturday, January 11th @ 11am to learn more about nutrition. We'll be talking about a variety of nutritional information along with myths and answering your questions. Free to everyone! See you there! #nutritionworkshop #comejoinus #healthydoesnthavetobeboring #maketimeforwhatmatters #loveyourbody
Healthy certainly doesn't have to be boring NOR restricted. This is a 275 calorie breakfast with an egg, egg white, bacon, avocado, salsa, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, & kiwi. Full of flavor and diversity that definitely doesn't feel like I'm being cheated on with quantity! Compare it to the second picture of a McDonald's egg white delight mcmuffin which is almost the equivalent in calories. Forget the calories for a second and ask yourself, "Which will my body love me more for?" Don't get me wrong, there are days for most, if not all of us, when our busy lives cause us to forget to make time for or prevent us from meal preparation. So, healthier fast food choices can be made, but fast food doesn't have to be our go-to. We stand by encouraging everyone to find the healthy lifestyle that fits your goals and will be something you can stick with long term. Remember: it's a way of living. Choosing each day to care about your body enough to fuel it with the food and fluids that will allow you to live your days to your maximum potential. If you're interested in learning a variety of nutritional information, come join us next Saturday, January 11th @ 11 am for our nutrition seminar. It's FREE to everyone! See you there! #healthylifestyle #healthydoesnthavetobeboring #itsawayoflife #comejoinus #nutritionworkshop #fuelyourbody #loveyourbody

Often times, when you hear about progress made through exercise, you hear about weight loss. Here at CrossFit we are working towards OVERALL health and wellness. Here is just the beginning of Chad’s story! “So I started coming to cross fit with Tim Leslie. I needed to get healthier. I’m diabetIc, Blood sugar levels was staying high around 250 range. I have been coming almost 2-3 months or so only bout 3 times a week. Lost some weight and have been eating better. Went for check up at doc. He said that my A1c came down and to stop take Trulicity.. which is a shot for diabetes
Still long ways to go. But it’s a start I guess
😁👍🏽” This is more than just a start! This is just the beginning of an awesome journey. We love our members and we love seeing positive change 💪🏻💚 Awesome job Chad!
Don’t wait for New Years resolutions. Start your journey today!

“Front rack clock face” - adapted from @torokhtiy
Describing elbow positioning in front rack
What does this mean?
Referencing the hours on a clock face to the position of the elbows may provide you with a more precise description for the athlete.
Press - Elbows at 5 o’clock position
Jerk - Elbows at 4 o’clock position
Front squat - Elbows at 3 o’clock position

Pushing through Friday like... Almost there!
Who am I kidding? I’m off today. Lol
Don’t be salty 🤪 I put in my time.
But seriously, for those of you still working, keep pushing. The end of the week is near!
I love how we humans can push through even when we think we have nothing left.
It’s during those moments we find out what we are really made of.

Words straight from the #CrossFit L2 Training Guide.⠀
This part really stuck out to us:⠀
Coach Glassman has asserted the following: “There is more traction, more advantage, more opportunity in pursuing that one thing that you don’t want to see come out (of the Hopper) headlong than to put more time into that thing you’re already good at. That thing that you don’t want to see come out is a chink in your armor. And addressing it will make a difference for you in ways that you’ll never be able to predict.”⠀
We've said it over and over: Most people want to do the type of training they need the least. ⠀
They might tell you they just really like lifting, or that they believe they need to lift more in order to get stronger, but we've found that these are often masks or cover-ups.⠀
Not always. But a lot of the time.⠀
What it often comes down to is that people don't like to work on weaknesses.⠀
We don't like to fail. Culturally, it's humiliating to fail. It's what losers do.⠀
We don't like to look "weak" or unskilled or unfit. We want to be perceived a certain way, fit into a certain group or clique.⠀
So when we dig down into the roots of the thing, we find ego and identity.⠀
If we want to change a culture wrapped up in fakery and fronting, we have to start with ourselves.⠀
As coaches, we LEAD. Leave Ego At Door.⠀
What kind of training does your ego crave?⠀
What weaknesses are you trying to avoid? ⠀
