Competing Against Others And Yourself – You Are Wired for This, For Better or Worse

Ah, the CrossFit Open is soon upon us, the first Spartan Race US National Series race took place this past weekend, and 2021’s personal, career, and sales goals are still within reach (remember those goals from January? Yikes!)!  It is in our DNA to compete with others.  That’s how we have evolved, in a very […]

Your Nutrition is 100% Important!

Why don’t we hear more about the 500,000 premature deaths each year due to poor diet and the 1,800 daily deaths due to cardiovascular disease that need never develop?

This hierarchy starts with nutrition and moves to metabolic conditioning, gymnastics, weightlifting, and finally, sport. “Nutrition is the foundation of the pyramid. The quality and constituent elements of an athlete’s diet influence metabolism and therefore the molecular […]

Sharing a Couple Great Articles on Brain Aging and the Metabolic Switch

A recent article shared from crossfit.com on the hallmarks of brain aging was particularly interesting as it referenced scientific research (as crossfit.com seems to do consistently) related to how the brain ages and how the effects of metabolism may influence the rate at which our brain ages. As I get older this is particularly interesting to me […]
