Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

First off, I want to say thank you to all those that have reached out to me and my family though email and facebook. We kept largely to ourselves after all this, kept our heads down, and went back...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

You've made a quite the living off of spin and self interest. Quite a few lives you have smashed up here in Prescott along the way. Amazingly, you have found a way to beat up on the affiliate...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

What a coincidence....
Almost a year ago a "a non-managing equity partner of CrossFit Inc." tried to walk off with my affiliate and 3 plus years of hard work. Looks like we were just a dry run.

Re: New and Confused

Eric, no where did I say anything about being under the watchful eye of a CrossFit trainer, going to an affiliate, or doing group classes. Further I did not mention open gym as far as "clients" go....

Honestly, I am not sure why people are so bent. I have been very specific about my contention. An untrained person doing CrossFit on their own in my gym. The evidence is overwhelming, training...

Re: New and Confused

To be honest, most guys that think they should be able to train on thier own are absolute train wrecks. The reason they want to train on their own is because they THINK they know what they are doing...

Re: Grip Strength Inprovement vs. Recovery Time

Just a word to clarify: Research shows that a weakened grip is a sure sign of beginning to over train. The reason most 'Strength" programs limit heavy deadlifts (SS, 5-3-1, Texas Method, etc.) to...

Re: Squatting, Knees First?

They are engaging glutes-ham first. I can see it. That is the only reason they haven't torn a meniscus yet. Problem is most novices can't figure out how to do this with out sitting back, and they...

Re: Strange KNEE PAIN, HELP!

You probably pushed your knee to far forward repetatively and irritated the patella.

Re: No heads up before another $1000 affiliate fee hike!?

It appears you may be more concerned with the money CrossFit is "making" as a corporation, than the value of what you receive as an affiliate.

Perhaps if you better understood the resources...

Re: No heads up before another $1000 affiliate fee hike!?

If my business was booming to the point I could not "manage" the growth, I would raise rates too. $ will manage it since there are no ways to control it otherwise without skimming into the franchise...

Re: Speed Under The Bar

Lincoln, My point is coming from a different place...I think. We have SEVERAL members who are 45+ (this is a Prescott, AZ thing). If a class has 15-20 people it is the norm for over 1/2 to be over...

We have used Louis Principles for years now, off and on. Always better results for CrossFit than SS or 5-3-1. The key is to learn to adapt it fast for the client. In a room with 10-25 trainees...

Lincoln, the problem with those is that is the speed at which the movement happens. The GHD Sit-up movement initiates with extended knees like the oly lifts or the jump in order to recruit the...
