What made you decide to give CrossFit a try? I've done organized sports my whole life.  I started with gymnastics at a young age and in high school switched to competitive cheerleading which I stuck with through college.  After college I knew I needed to continue to do something active so I would go on runs and workout in my apartment building gym, nothing that got me very excited because who likes to run all that much?  My roommate at the time had casually mentioned this thing called CrossFit to me.  We cheered together and were both having the same challenges...

A big congratulations to two of CFH's members Lori and Josh on recently getting engaged!  When Lori moved to the city from the county she needed a place to live and was introduced to Josh and his puppy Champ. Although Josh wasn't interested in a roommate, he agreed to meet Lori with some persuasive nudging from a mutual friend. Lori became a roommate on the condition she took care of Champ while he was out of town on business. The agreement was for this arrangement to last no more than three months while Lori found another place to live.  Here we...

Mindfulness is a hot-button topic in society and scientific research at the moment. Almost everywhere I look I am starting to see more and more information on being present and in tune with yourself and your environment, and the potential benefits of these practices. There is mounting evidence to support the ability of mindfulness to positively affect both one's mood and physical performance. As somebody who is constantly looking for ways to improve my performance in the sport of CrossFit, I have started applying these principles and practices to my workouts. In short, Mindfulness is the process of being aware of...
