The Open workouts might be unknown, but at least we can rest in peace knowing the final event.

The  Beer Mile - a true test of real world fitness.
Join us Friday night March 22nd after the last Open workout for some shenanigans and tacos.

Rethink Intensity

Try this: Weekly Training Mindset - "Fast and Slow"

Pick a day of the week to go as hard as you possibly can - maximize your "score". Alternatively, pick another day of the week to slow things down to really practice each movement at a level that pushes your current skill. 

I hope you'll find that both can be very intense.

The 5 Factors of Health

What are the factors that we need to take into consideration when we’re trying to improve our health? Ben Bergeron, owner of Crossfit New England and coach to some of the top athletes in CrossFit, breaks health down into five main factors.

1. EAT

Real food, not too much, mostly plants. What you eat dictates your hormones and how your body functions.


7-9 hours a night, every night. Sleep matters! It matters so much that Bergeron even put it above training.


5x a week of constantly varied, functional movements at relative high intensity. This may seem like an obvious one for our community, but I think it's placement on the list below eat and sleep is very telling.


Never whine, never complain, never make excuses. The power of positive thought is real and the way you think about things matters.


Build, sustain, & grow deep relationships. Just like you don't get fit by chance, this one takes intentionality. Connect with people!

Here is a podcast episode of Ben breaking down each of the 5 Factors of Health
