We love seeing all types of athletes progress and change in the gym. But there is something quite remarkable about seeing a parent who sets an example to their kids. Even better, is when there are two parents who do it together. Andy has come alongside his wife, Brooke, and they have set themselves as a priority. In doing that, they've become the role models: they eat well, they work hard in and out of the gym, and they play hard. And sometimes that means long nights shuttling their two girls around. Or meal prepping and planning, to fuel their family well. And coming to gym at times that may not be...

We hosted another Skills Clinic a couple weeks ago, explaining skills, drills, and mobility work to get toes to bar. Our method for this clinic is just like the preceding ones, where strengthening good movement is priority. Getting your toes to the bar can be achieved without great positioning or efficiency, but we want to encourage our athletes to strive for solid movement. In the long run, this may require more time and patience to achieve, but it will provide better movement that will lessen chances for injury, increase stamina in the movement, and allow you to rep out more toes to bar without fa...

Let's talk about the real CrossFit heroes. Yeah, we can appreciate those CrossFit Games athletes in all their chiseled, sweaty, glory every summer. But the vast majority of CrossFitters are everyday people, who come into the box one hour a day. And these are the folks who may one day change the face of disease in our country-from one in four dying of heart disease to thriving, healthy, and disease free moms, dads, uncles, aunts, sisters, brothers, grandmas and grandpas. The people who have jobs they commute to, full email inboxes, lunch meetings, and deadlines. The people that have kids, and dogs, a...

 Who's cheering you on this year?

January is almost over. How are your resolutions going? If you're going strong, you're one of the 58% who will maintain their resolutions past one month. Only 72% maintain in the first WEEK. I've heard some online chatter about how resolutions are pointless because they don't last. But I'm making a case for resolutions and want to encourage you to stay the course!

1. The beginning of a new year is a great time to reset. The days are back on track to being longer, the sun is out longer, and people start to think more productively after the holidays. And this is pretty...

Christian has been at NoCoast for going on three years. Long enough to have experienced Little Blue. And in Christian's start student style, long enough to get his CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certification, and his CrossFit Kids Certification. Long enough to smash the whiteboard on the daily, a force to be reckoned with, and a devoted Black Track Athlete. He takes care of his two girls, Elizabeth and Anna, and from this his passion for CrossFit Kids has sprung. He'll be coaching our Kids Classes on Thursday nights, and has proven himself to be an adept athlete, and now, coach. Read more about him!

The next movement in our Clinic Series is the Muscle Up. We've decided to focus on the strict muscle up. I understand this is not necessary to building capacity in the kipping muscle up. However, building capacity in the strict movement is essentially strengthening and mobilizing all the pieces required for the kipping movement. We want our members to achieve a strict muscle up before kipping for this reason. It will develop a strong base and foundation for the intense range of motion and strength needed to support lots of muscle ups in the future. 

With that in mind, this program is not just for peo...

Katie is the definition of tiny but mighty. She is small, but full of power! She is a great morning athlete. Since coming to NoCoast, we've seen her just become more proficient, build more strength, and find herself being a bit more competitive. Plus she's hilarious. And we all know humor is necessary at 6:00 in the morning at the gym. Most don't know this woman has TEN kids! We just think that's an amazing feat in itself. She is as consistent as they come, and has a lot going on. We had to hear more about how she does it! Her answer is humble. We still think you're amazing, Katie!

After years of coaching and running nutrition challenges, I realized I needed to serve my population better. I needed to dig deeper into the topic of nutrition. A year later, I'm a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. There are about 3,000 NTPs in the world right now. We are part of a growing group of people who recognize there needs to be a paradigm shift in how we view health. The Standard American Diet has created problems for many of us. Problems that you never knew could be caused by nutritional deficiencies: cognition, skin issues, mood, loss of energy, resistance to weight loss, infert...

We recently had Double Under Clinic. Coach Sam provided skills and drills for the next month to help you get better at double unders. This is the third in a series of clinics that is meant to support high skill movements outside of class. Class time doesn't always allow for us to dig into these movements as much as we'd like. The next one will be Saturday, December 3rd covering muscles ups! 

The following is the plan provided by Sam:

Shane has been with us since Little Blue. I am often a bit surprised that we're cool enough for him. But behind his good music choices, awesome beard, tasteful tattoos and piercings, he's simply a dude that works hard for his family. And we are just here to support that. He crushes the noon time lifestyle. He comes in super consistently, and gets his workouts during work hours before heading home to the family-a wife (Ashleigh), son (Ronin), and baby girl (Emmy Lou). He's incredibly strong, and lifting a lot of weight seems to come easy for him. But, he's become really adept at making the most of ea...
