  • Common Beginner CrossFit Mistakes

    By James Hoffman | In Crossfit Training | on October 23, 2014

    I have had the recent pleasure of working with more and more CrossFit folks as of late. Man, they great clients! They are hardworking, dedicated, and meticulously follow their programs.

    By Chad Smith | In Sports Training | on October 20, 2014

    This past Saturday, I spent the day watching my oldest niece’s soccer team, The Cherry Bombs, in action.

    With The 2014 CrossFit Games airing on ESPN, you may have noticed a increased prevalence in the amount of Strongman movements being used.

  • A Different Approach to Mobility

    By James Hoffman | In Mobility | on October 13, 2014
