The 800 Gram Challenge!

September 18, 2019

By Debbie Olson (@revamped_nutrition_necf)   The more studying and researching being done on nutrition, the more I am realizing that we make this a lot more complicated than it needs to be! Please take a few minutes to read through this and really think about giving this challenge a try as I KNOW you will not be disappointed. I can not blame us, the consumers, for being constantly teas

Which Type(s) of Coach Should Athletes Have?

September 11, 2019

By Coach Manny Alayon This is a topic that comes to mind a lot as the school year comes back into session. Kids start getting back into the routine and begin training for their in-season sports. Many parents are a little lost in exactly what they are looking for in terms of training for their youth athlete(s). The expectations that parents have nowadays in regards to their kid’s sports are quit

Is Science Everything?

September 4, 2019

By, Cameron Hudson   The fitness industry as a whole has always gone through its shares of fads and trends. Anyone remember shake weights? In all seriousness, these trends are sometimes for the better. A lot of people thought CrossFit was going to be this fad that faded out as quickly as it came onto the scene. And yet here we are. Thriving and changing lives. So, what’s the latest tren

A Moment of Reflection

August 28, 2019

By Chris Shkreli I want to preface this with the comment that, this might end up being a lot of random things thrown together because I have a lot in my head and want to get it all out, so if some of it is confusing, or jumps around a lot, I apologize.   Recently, Manny gave us “homework” and asked us to reflect on ourselves, the way we train and how it personifies the way we coach

Do We Allow External Energy Influence Our Internal Energy?

August 21, 2019

By Debbie Olson   There was an instance at the gym not too long ago and it has been on my mind ever since.  I discussed this with the member and we shared opinions on it.  I think it is important to share as I am sure this has happened to at least one of you either inside or outside of the gym.  It also gave me some time to self reflect to see how I can make this better in the future. 

Where’s Coach Manny Been?

August 14, 2019

Hi NorthEast CrossFit Community,   I know I haven’t been around much. I know I’ve been saying I’ll be around more for quite some time now. I’ve been getting a lot of the playful jokes of “where have you been?!” What’s funny to me is when I go to Eastchester, many assume I just spend all my time at Hawthorne and when I go to Hawthorne, the assumption is that I am always at

By Kenny Olmeda   In Iceland “Fullsterkur” means full strength. It was a designation given to the heaviest stones and the men who had to lift them in order to earn their place on the fishing boats. The “Fullsterkur” stone weighed in at a whopping 338.8lbs (154 kg). The minimum weight a man would have to lift in order to earn his place on the boat was a stone weighing 118.8lbs (54k

Dear Will

Dear Will,   First off, congratulations on accomplishing what only 9 other people in the WORLD could achieve. You’ve made it to the CrossFit Games. To say this feat is nothing short of incredible would be an understatement. There were several tests that you had to endure in order to get to this point and your thrived through all of them.

Selfish Or Self-Care

July 24, 2019

By Kenny Olmeda   It’s okay to enjoy the hour you spend at Northeast Crossfit. It’s okay to place your phone in a cubby and laugh, sweat, high five and have fun. When you are trying to build a healthy lifestyle, especially if you are going all in, it’s often quite difficult to give yourself permission to “be selfish” when society and your duties tell you otherwise. Time is a fin

Confessions Of A Weightlifter

July 17, 2019

By Coach Mac Dompor CrossFit is fun. That may sound redundant coming from a coach at a CrossFit gym so let me elaborate. If you had asked me a few years ago what I had thought about CrossFit, I would have just laughed. I was a non-believer of its practices, coaches, and the system as a whole. It looked like another fitness gimmicky trend that would fall to the wayside after people got bored wit
