Re: Progenex fails to meet label claims.

The other part of the problem is that coaches, owners, etc get discounts from a lot of these companies, so there is certainly a pay-to-play attitude in a LOT of CrossFit boxes. Clients think they are...

Re: Best Nutrition certification?

Becoming a registered dietician won't help you a bit for performance athletic nutrition. I don't know what will, as I'm lucky to have had a ton of nutrition in my professional career, but an RD won't...

Re: IPAD timer for CF

Tabata Pro is good for tabatas and repetitive cycles. We use some other app for our main metcon timer but it sucks because our network is always sketchy, so it'll un-AirPlay with the TV, lock up on...

Re: New CrossFit Certification Opportunities

Diana is correct... Upping the Level needed to be a judge at Regionals+ level would be stupid. Being a good judge requires a lot of judging experience. Being a good coach requires a lot of good...

Re: Pull-up question

Kipping with bands guarantees you will never get away from bands. I stopped using bands after a years and did ring rows every time pull-ups came up in WOD's and after a couple months I had my first...

Re: Expectations for Photographers at Box Events?

Thanks, Diana! That sounds more like work than fun. LOL But I understand he is a professional/semi-pro and that's a totally different world. That must bring up another level to think about... not...

Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

Re: Java junkies out there?

Filtropa white. Poured a whole kettle of boiling water through and used way over-roasted Peet's beans a while ago and I still got that flavor I associate with paper. Hrmph.

Re: Experience as Medical Crew at Regionals/Games

I have friends who've done this for RockTape and they said you get worked HARD at both Regionals and especially games. LONG shifts, lots of work, not much time to hang out and watch. It's probably...

Re: 1 Month In....
