In case you hadn’t heard, the CF Kids Jamboree turned out to be an INCREDIBLE success! There was an obstacle course, a relay race, a few rounds of Cindy, and a massive game of Dodgeball! We housed a total of 45 kiddos, representative of gyms from all around Knoxville. I’m not sure I’ve come down […]

I just finished […]

Squats, leg strength, and weightlifting

By |July 20th, 2016|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville|0 Comments

A tried and true method for coming up with blog post ideas is to jot down any conversations I may have with multiple members. If athletes are asking the same questions it stands to reckon it is either important, there is ambiguity somewhere, or we are not doing a good enough job explaining something. One […]

Squatting is important. We’ve asked, “If you are going to be stranded on an island what is the one exercise you would take with you?” A lot of you responded with the back squat, and I definitely think you would be hard pressed to find a better movement.

I know you’re all jealous of the workouts drawn on the CrossFit Kids board. I am. While the Wodify programming contains a wide variety of 10RMs and 1K rowing tests, the Kids board is just covered with colorful pictures and games. Who wouldn’t want to play games for a workout?!

Why CrossFit?

By |January 4th, 2016|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville|1 Comment

This post is a follow-up to my earlier “Why Fitness?” post. If we know that we need to have this elusive concept called “fitness” because it benefits our overall lifestyle and well-being, what is the best way to gain fitness? There are many ways to define fitness and likely just as many ways to go […]
