For some it’s the first step to the Crossfit Games, for many it’s a chance to show off their year of fitness, and for most it’s a chance throw down with their community and test themselves in a competitive state. Yes, the Open means something different for each of us, but we should … Continue reading How to Fuel in the Crossfit Open
I’ve neglected this topic for quite a while, but with the current environment of diet tribes and misinformation, I feel it’s right that people know the truth about vegan diets. Now, my issue isn’t with vegans themselves, I sincerely respect ones decision not to contribute to suffering, and all of the ethical reasons behind avoiding animal products. … Continue reading Why Vegans Are Healthier
