Re: Legitimacy Of Peaking For One WOD

Just thought I'd throw out that we did Helen at our Level 1 cert. I don't think Fran is a given.

Carry on. :)

Dang....we want Kelly to come to Central Texas! :)

My husband and I watch each and every video that Kelly does. SO much information. We've utilized his advice in our affiliate a ton.

Re: how to peel a hard boil egg

****Michael--I just use a pot in which we have a steamer basket-insert thingy. I think as long as the eggs are getting a good steam treatment, I don't think it matters, in terms of top or bottom...

Re: how to peel a hard boil egg

Here's my tip...

We steam our eggs instead of boil them. Load them up in a steamer basket, lid on pot...good steam going for roughly 13-ish minutes. Peel perfectly. I'll never boil eggs again. ...

Re: My Logos :-)

Hi Joshua,

I like your logo. The 2-color scheme keeps it simple and eye-catching with the contrast.

The web address on the bottom is hard to read with the 'worn' look you've got going. My...

Re: POSE running

I want a pair of H-streets bad! I'll also check out Mizuno's because I'm all about funky shoes.

I got my Nike Frees at Academy and I saw them there a couple weeks ago still.

Re: Garage Gym Affiliates Unite!

Good idea, Tish. I like 'Home Based Facility' too, at least to those who are unfamiliar with CrossFit.
