Thank you Pivot fitness for checking in on me today. Will be back at the gym soon.
Thanks to the pivot family for checking in on me today. Will be back to the gym soon.
Hey friends! I’m working tomorrow morning, so I’m going to head to the gym to do tomorrow’s New Year’s Eve workout from 6-7 AM…. the more the merrier if anyone wants to join! 😉
Anyone up for a holiday social one night while the kids are out of school? Would love to get to know more of you without having to fit it in before or after a workout.
Hey ladies and gents I’m going to start taking orders for these shirts. I can do them with or without the bleaching on it. They’ll be $20 and let me know your size and color. Please post your first and second color choice in case your size is out of stock. Color options listed in the comments. The brand will be the Gildan soft style and they run slightly big. Thanks y’all!
Great partner WOD today.
Did anyone happen to find a pair of sunglasses this morning after the 8:15 class? TIA

✌️ topics here

The first is you have no idea what is going on in other people’s lives which is one of the reason it’s not fair to compare. Also, it’s not fair to you, because you are not them, and vice versa. Maybe they only focus on one or two areas where you have to focus on many more because of other responsibilities you have.

The second is that being “the best” or focusing too hard on the end result is the wrong place to put your focus. A lot of what goes into being “the best” is outside of your control.

Essentially, what this boils down to is where you put your focus. Do you put it on things you can control or do you put it on things and people you can’t control. Think about it.


Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

The first step towards being really good at something is first embracing and accepting that you’re not good at it.

There’s no way to bypass the process where you learn how to do the small stuff.

Spend time with the basics and make things become second nature through repetition.


Are you high energy and love coaching/connecting people to their health and fitness goals?

Position: part-time coach
Paid by the class + free gym membership

1) Must have previous personal training or group style fitness coaching experience.

The scale is a finicky thing. You could be doing EVERYTHING right, and that stupid thing is still going to have days or weeks where it appears to be heading in the wrong direction.

Want to know something interesting? That same trend of oscillating up and down, happens when people are trying to gain weight as well.

When you encounter days or weeks where you’re not seeing the number you want, that’s a good time to audit your behaviors (are you being as accurate as you think?) and then focus on the indicators of progress - like how are your energy levels? - how are your clothes fitting? - how is your mood/quality of life?

Most importantly, don’t use that number as an excuse to give up on you effort. It is still working. Keep going.

We offer certified nutrition coaching to get you on the right track. Reach out to for a free consultation.


Who’s making it ALL 7 days? 😈

1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Building good foundational habits is essential to long-term success.


The most important story is the one you tell yourself.

Life gets hard. Workouts get hard. Nutrition gets hard. Relationships get hard.

Check yourself. What stories are you telling yourself when these things happen? Are they the right ones? Are you being tough on yourself? Are you talking to yourself differently than you would talk to somebody else?

It can be scary to do hard things. To go all in. To feel fully seen. It can feel scary to be vulnerable to failure.

Be gentle and lean into discomfort rather than finding the out. Be ok with not knowing if what you’re doing is good enough.

So what if you fail. Failing is a heck of a lot more successful than never trying.

You’ve got got this! 🤜🤛

Think your too old to chase a goal? To chase performance? To change your health?
Think again.

Humans aren’t bananas, we don’t become mushy and useless when we age.

It’s never too late to start. Whether it’s family or work or school that has kept you from chasing your health and performance goals, you still have time. Plenty of it.

Age can be a excuse for many people, don’t let it be an excuse for you! And if your reading this and thinking of your parents or friends, be a voice of positivity and encouragement in their lives so they might feel empowered to make changes.

Becoming part of a community of like-minded individuals driven to better themselves, is the key to starting and staying on the wagon.

There are ✌️ main types to concentrate on:

DYNAMIC - a form of active stretching that is performed by engaging the muscle’s through the joint’s range of motion, therefore increasing blood flow. Think before your workout warm-ups. This type of stretching is critical in preventing injuries and increasing athletic performance

STATIC - what typically comes to mind when talking about stretching. It is a form of active or passive stretching in which you hold a position for about 30-60sec+, allowing the muscles and their connective tissues, fascia, to lengthen. Think after your workout. This type of stretching is really only recommended once the muscles and tendons are already warm and have a significant increase in blood flow.

Now get to stretching!


Do you have shoulder pain?

Do you hindering mobility?

The notion of, “do one thing a day that scares you” can truly be the hidden key to unlocking positive change and success.

Example: walking through our doors. It can be scary, intimidating, stereotypical, even awkward…

Trust us, give yourself 1 MONTH of FREE UNLIMITED classes and watch those initial feelings be replaced with support, empowerment, and community.

Welcome Ron Dardar to our coaching staff!!

Where you from?
Houma, Louisiana

What is your coaching experience?
CrossFit has been a significant part of my life since 2013. I immediately fell in love with and saw the benefits of the mythology of the sport. Living in South Louisiana, where health and fitness aren’t a top priority, I saw a need in my community for a gym that could help educate people about exercise and nutrition. That led my business partners and myself to open CrossFit HomeBrew in 2015. We owned the gym for 5 years, helping hundreds of people achieve their health and fitness goals.

I also met my amazing wife through CrossFit. After marriage, we relocated to Birmingham, AL in 2019 for her to attend optometry school.

What is your full-time job?
I currently work for CrossFit HQ in the Education and Training Department as a Sr. Project Manager.

Look out for Ron coaching Tuesday mornings and covering other classes!


We can help you achieve them!!

‼️ Meet Danielle Harris ‼️

What’s your day job?
Owner of Ideal Roofing and mother of two!

What made you come to Pivot?
and invited me. They were very persuasive and I value their opinion!!

What is your favorite thing about Pivot?
For me, I love the wide variety of workouts. Although the workouts are incredibly challenging, it’s a constant movement that makes the time move faster. I am inspired by the other members and how hard they work. Seeing them work as hard as they do makes me want to be better and work harder while igniting that urge of a friendly competition. I may never win, but I’ll get stronger along the way.

Keep grinding !! 🤜🤛

Beat the heat with SALT!! 🧂

Many fear salt for various reasons such as elevated blood pressure levels…etc. But we’re here to tell you that if you have high blood pressure there’s a really good chance it’s not the salt causing your high blood pressure😉. Other factors like a sedentary lifestyle, poor food choices, alcohol and other stressors are the culprit.

Salt is actually a critical nutrient needed to carry out various processes within the body.

Consuming proper amounts of salt and water prior to exercise has been shown to have the biggest improvements on performance compared to any other strategy.

Larger intakes of sodium (>2,300mg)/day have shown to have a greater impact on performance than lower (
