WHERE ARE YOU?

Since 2011, the CrossFit community has come together once a year, to complete 5 workouts (previously 6), in 5 consecutive weeks, to place on a worldwide scoreboard, which is then divided up, into regions, to determine who would advance to the next stage, to then compete for a ticket to the CrossFit Games. If you’re short on time, here’s a summery…

Why 20% = 100%

Math, was never my strong point. But, hear me out, there’s a chance that by reading this, you’ll completely smash the next workout you take on. Whether that just so happens to be Fran, or, a good ol’ strength session, this, is a game changer.   The Pareto principle, or, the 80/20 rule; have you heard of it? No? Don’t…

First 200 Days

6 and half months, 200 days, 4,800 hours…to some this feels like a vast amount of ‘nothingness’ in time. But others, chasing the attainment of goals or life change, 200 days can fly by, life a flash of light. Through the expression of personal health and fitness goals, the last 200 Days have been meticulously tracked. Of course throughout these…

Lost for Words

Highly uncharacteristic. I’ve always had an opinion, loved a debate, and, like most, enjoy talking about myself, but recently I had less to say, a lot less. The day I noticed it most was when I ran out of ideas. Just gone!? I don’t really know how to describe but its like the idea’s well had dried up. I grew…

WHY 2016 IS EXACTLY WHAT THE WORLD NEEDED

I’ve read countless blogs, status updates, articles of how TERRIBLE 2016 was. If you was one of those people, I would love to hear your thoughts on 2016 after you’ve read this article.* *Note; this, like everything I write is me processing and working through my own personal reflections, so I’m as guilty of this as the next person! 😀…

BEFORE AND AFTER WHAT?!

I don’t know about you, but I get real bored these days of seeing endless before and after posts on *insert any social media platform*, they’re all full of them. #motivationmonday, #throwbackthursday and #transformationtuesday …. STOP LIVING IN THE PAST GUYS. If you look through Phoenix Strength publications you will be VERY hard pressed to find any physique before and…

FIGHT OR FLIGHT

The last 4 weeks have been crazy, hectic, emotional, exciting, exhausting…you name it, I’ve felt it. When a situation is forced upon you have 2 choices, fight or flight. I’ve trained my fight response pretty well in the past, it’s why Phoenix Strength even came into existence in the first place, however, it took a certain environment, support network and…

SOMETIMES I F&*% UP, I’M OKAY WITH IT.

We all experience it, those moments in your head when that little voice, or in some cases, that really clear loud voice in your head says “Ah sh!t, I think I f&*%ed up”. You’re little monkey voice may express themselves a differently, but mine is normally full of profanities, I’m not going to apologise for it 😉 I used to think it…

TRAIN YOURSELF TO UNDERSTAND YOU’RE ON THE HUNT EVERYDAY!

Lets be honest everyone, the Fitness Industry is a mess. I can say this because I’ve had the luxury of experiencing the polar opposite ends of this industry, from being the 100% undertrained novice, all the way to Coach, gaining the appropriate qualifications (which, this part of the industry is also a real sham, but thats a rant for another day)…
