Staying The Course

April 18, 2018

By Coach Manny Alayon   Perhaps this post won’t directly mean much at first. However, I believe we can draw a lot of parallels and find how the meaning of this post may fit into your life. When I opened up the gym in 2012, it was a time where CrossFit as a whole was still very raw. It was new, it was abrasive, it was bare bones, it was like the punk rock culture of the fitness industry.

The “Real” Workout

February 21, 2018

By Coach Kenny Olmeda   You can usually catch me around the results board after a WOD is finished asking athletes for their scores. Every now and then the following exchange takes place:   Coach: What is your score? Athlete: 7:25 but... I scaled. Coach: So?

Extreme Weight Loss: Strongman Edition

January 24, 2018

By Coach Kenny Olmeda   This past weekend I competed in my sixth amateur strongman competition, NY-Strongest 5. After months of lifting things up and putting them down during training, it was time to prove my mettle in front of an audience. The only problem was I sabotaged any chance I had at performing well in the final ten days leading up to the competition.   In strongman,
