In the early years of CrossFit Fargo, new athletes were inducted into membership through a 4-day class called Virtuosity. At CFF, we define virtuosity as performing the common, uncommonly well. These four classes not only taught the foundational exercises, technique and movement mechanics. The classes also covered the CrossFit philosophy and methodology. As a result, the new members that went through the Virtuosity program "go...

Do you remember in grade school that you often were asked what your future goals were, what do you wanted to “be when you grow up”? And then magically you turn 19 and no one asks you again because you were supposed to have this planned by the time you were 17 and then you turn 30 and you’re like WHAT JUST HAPPENED!? Oftentimes goals, without focus, get lost in the shuffle of the real world.

Whether large or small, setting goals...

It’s easy to get wrapped up in your own thought process. Over think, worry, stress. 

Take a moment- If you really think about the things that are consuming your thoughts, you’ll realize that MOST of them are out of your control, right? And although we would like to change unfortunate situations,

we are only capable of changing our responses to situations. 

I recently got an email about this topic and it had a great exercise in it...

Two months ago your life was a little more compartmentalized. 

You had work at work. 

You had fitness at the gym. 

You had home at home. 

Now they are all at the same place, and for some, in the same room.

 Which begs the question, can you strike a balance? 

I have always had an issue with work/life balance (as most working people do) and this stay at home order definitely didn’t help me find any more balance in that realm.

There are 3 main types of muscle contractions:  Isometric, Eccentric, and Concentric. 

Isometric: An isometric contraction is a static action where the muscle generates force but there is no movement. When a barbell is held at the midpoint of the bicep curl, the biceps exert force but do not change in length. When the athlete places resistance against the curling movement, the biceps neither overcome the resistance, nor ar...

Now that the weather is getting nice, you may be tempted to forgo your resistance training and head outdoors for some aerobic exercise in the fresh air.  But beware:  if you give up your resistance training, you will be giving up more than you bargained for.

Why resistance train?

Resistance training is critical for true fitness.  Without it, your muscles will atrophy.  If you aren’t building muscle, you are likely losing it...

This Sunday, March 8th, marks the date we change our clocks in observance of Daylight Saving Time.  On this day, most U.S. residents will move their clocks forward one hour, resulting in more daylight at the end of each day. 

Many people dread this “spring forward” tradition, because it means getting one less hour of

sleep.   But you can take advantage of the upcoming time change to help you improve your overall fitness and...

It’s all around you, but you probably don’t even notice.  It is a stealth energy-drainer, and it may be sabotaging your fitness goals. 

It’s called clutter and each of us has it in our lives.  This can be physical clutter or mental clutter.

The insidious nature of clutter is this:  it establishes itself so gradually and entrenches itself so deeply, that we don’t even consciously know it is there.  But it is there, sapping our cr...
