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
Your Sistine Chapel
July 3, 2019
By Cameron Hudson
Have you ever walked through a museum or an art gallery and been totally blown away at some of the creations scattered throughout? The time and effort that must have gone into some of those pieces is hard to imagine. For years, some of the artists poured over their work and likely cast out dozens of pieces that didn’t quite live up to their standard. To some degree,
Exemplifying Team Work at Asbury Park Games
June 26, 2019
By Coach Deb
This past weekend, there was a CrossFit event at Asbury Park. This was a two day event consisting of multiple workouts per day. I happily spectated while some close friends, members, and my husband competed. While spectating, I walked away with some valuable knowledge. It was another experience that I am grateful for and I feel lucky to have been a part of.
Time To Bite Down On Your Mouth Piece
June 19, 2019
By Coach Manny Alayon
Bite down on the mouth piece and just go. This recurring theme has been implanted into my brain from a young age. It was a theme my wrestling coach instilled in us so we never rode on excuses. It kept us less anxious and more focused. What this little saying means is to do less talking, less thinking and just focus more at the task at hand, no matter how difficult. This is a

About 2 months ago while doing some social media stuff for the gym, I came across the hashtag #communityovercompetition. I read over it 2 or 3 times and then it hit me like a brick wall. The idea is something we preach in CrossFit, but is rarely executed. The competitive nature of CrossFit will often trump the community aspect. “How so?” you may ask. Let me expl
Does Dave Ramsey CrossFit?

We all have that one friend who constantly shuffles from song to song without hearing a single one in its entirety, right? Well, as annoying as that can be, that’s me. Both literally and figuratively. In my mind I can shuffle from one idea to the next without working through the first thought. I imagine I am not the only one like this, so I thought I would talk abou
Beware the Salad
May 29, 2019
By Debbie Leonti
Sometimes the food choices we think are better for us end up being no better than the burger and fries we are avoiding.
It is time to go out to dinner with the family. You get there and automatically stress that beach season is right around the corner. What do you order? You say, “I’ll have the salad!” Although we are always preaching to get your greens in and
So, You Wanna Be An Action Star?
May 22, 2019
By Cameron Hudson
What makes a good action star? Is it their ability to wield weapons? Be heroic amidst danger? Heroes, or action stars, come in a wide variety of forms. But, one thing they all have in common is that they take ACTION.
A lot of us have these general ideas, aspirations and goals. We can go on and on about all the things we want to do, where we want to go or what type of person w
This Is 40!

By Maggie Martinez-Figueroa
For those of you that don’t really know me, I hope this little blog will give you a little insight as to who I am, what I do, and what it’s like to be a female, mother, wife and CrossFit coach at the age of 40.
So, for the record, my first name is actually Margaret (and if anyone attempts to call me such, I will politely ignore you lol). I am ori
There Are No Problems, Only Solutions
May 8, 2019
By Coach Manny Alayon
Problem solving is something we learn when we are young children and as we get older it seems to leave us. Problem solving is an actual skill that doesn’t come as easy as it sounds. Your ability to sift through an issue to find the right solution isn’t always black and white. Being good at solving problems is not only good for fixing things around the house, but it helps
