First hearing about CrossFit in 2008, I thought it deserved as much respect as the thigh master. This placed it a step below the Total Gym and just above Fitness Made Simple DVDs (or were those VHS?). I remember thinking it was just a big fat fad like its millions of counterparts in the health […]

I have to brag about my friend and roommate, Mike, for a second. Since January of this year, he has lost close to 30 lbs and is the best shape I have seen him in since college. Not only that, but during this time he has stopped going to the gym, and pretty much kept […]

In remembrance of all those who gave their lives on 9/11/2001… We walked a couple blocks, turned right, walked another couple blocks, turned left, walked another couple blocks, turned right and repeated this exact process about ten times.
