How’s your Training IQ?

Written by
“With a partner, trading off rounds, you have 10 minutes to complete 5 rounds each. One partner working at a time,” are the instructions from the coach. 10 people nod their heads looking crystal clear, while one person looks confused and asks for clarification. “So, I’m resting when my partner is working?” he asks. “Precisely,” replies the coach. As a coach, I have a lot of respect for the question-asker. I welcome questions before any…

Add Science to your diet?

Written by
Want diet advice? Don’t bother with genetic testing…YET “If you could, would you want to know when you’re going to die?” At some point in time, you have probably been asked that question by one of your somewhat more morbid friends… When I asked that question at the firehouse the other day, only one of 12 people said they would want to know the answer. If most people don’t really want to know their ultimate…

Breakfast: To eat or not to eat

Written by
Breakfast is probably not the most important meal of the day For years, decades even, they said it’s important you never skip breakfast. Ever. It gets your metabolism going, they said. It helps you lose weight, they urged. You’ll die without it, they implied! They lied. Truth is, the breakfast being a necessity for a good life myth is relatively new. Prior to the late 19th century in North America, breakfast wasn’t considered that important…

Down with the sickness!!

Written by
Keep your sickness to yourself this flu season Cold and flu season is coming, and just like diet advice, information about what to do is ALL OVER THE MAP! “Feed a cold, starve a flu, right?” But wait, a new study says it depends on the cause of the flu. And another study suggests you shouldn’t eat much with certain colds, either. And what about working out? Should you work out when you have a…

Are you Coachable?

Written by
8 signs that you might be uncoachable I would think most people want to be described as “coachable,” or “a pleasure to work with.” Some people, though, have a hard time abandoning how they want to do things, for the sake putting their faith in a coach’s hands.Why? Because it’s hard to put your trust in someone else, especially when you’re competitive and impatient and have your own vision about what you want from each…

Pacing for Performance

Written by
Listen up: It doesn’t have to crush you to the point that you feel workout drunk!And in fact, if you’re in a lot of pain in the first half of any given conditioning workout, then you’ve probably done something wrong. Because a perfectly-paced workout is usually less painful than an improperly paced one. One of the biggest mistakes athletes make—especially inexperienced ones—is mis-pacing their conditioning workouts. They go out too hard and hit a wall.…

Maximize Open Gym Time

Written by
How to Maximize Your Open Gym Time If you’re an experienced athlete, you probably feel you have a pretty good idea what you’re doing at the gym. You might even feel capable enough to program and coach yourself. Feeling confident and eager to become more fit, it soon becomes tempting to want to show up to open gym time to work on specific skills on your own time. Oftentimes, though, when athletes show up in…

The Paradox of Clarity

Written by
Stuart McMillan is a world-renowned speed coach who has worked with dozens of Olympic-calibre athletes, including 2016 Olympics 100 and 200 m medalist Andre De Grasse. McMillan took to Twitter and asked an insightful question: “Is what we are currently doing still aligned with our purpose?” Before you answer his question, let me ask you this: Do you even know what your purpose is? Your purpose in life? Your purpose in your relationship? Your purpose…

Benefits of Childhood Fitness

Written by
Fitness in childhood can make you a healthier adult! - By Emily Beers I have been vocal for a long time about my hypothesis that—when it comes to health—what you do as a kid will translate into who you are as an adult. My friends have often poo poo-ed my theory, but it has always just made sense logical to me. I was a gymnast as a kid. I spent my weeks as an 8-year-old…

Hand Walking

Written by
So you want to learn to walk on your hands…While handstand walking isn’t exactly crucial to functional fitness, I understand the appeal. It’s a pretty cool party trick! Here’s the thing, though. Unfortunately we can’t just “show you how to walk on your hands.” It takes time—a lot of time! If you’re OK with that and are willing to put in the time, here are some basic concepts, and things you can do, to get…

Are you HAPPY?

Written by
Chicken or the Egg on Happiness? Happiness: Something we all would like to have a lot of in out lives. But the reality for many is that happiness is a fleeting emotion, something more often chased than found and kept. It’s a bit like the old chicken and egg argument: What comes first? Happiness and then a great life with all the things you want in it? Or does a great life with health and…

Posture Up!

Written by
Posture Bullying “Stop slouching.” I know, I know. “Sit up straight.” Yeah, yeah!" “Your posture is just horrendous.” Tell me what you really think, you asshole! When someone razzes you about your posture, it’s easy to want to tell the person to F off. But deep down, you probably feel a bit insecure, because you know that bad posture isn’t attractive. And you know posture says a lot about your personality. Nobody wants to be…

BUT I'M THIRSTY!

Written by
Put down your water bottle: You don’t need to drink during a 7-minute workout! I had a new client the other day who—in the middle of an 8-minute EMOM of burpees— freaked out because he ran out of water in his bottle. He abandoned his burpees and started sauntering toward the water cooler. Not so fast! I called him back because I wanted him to get back on his burpees at the top of the…
