You may have already got a sneak peak of the big addition to Ktown last Friday. And by big I mean 230lbs of man, and by addition I mean Coach Taylor Layman has rejoined the coaching staff at CrossFit Ktown. It’s a good thing, too. The weather service is predicting an unseasonable polar vortex dooms […]

Staying Healthy Outside the Gym
But, how can it help me at the gym?
I’ll start here because I don’t anticipate everyone making it to the end of the post and I’d like to hone in on some key points and maybe hook some of […]
Gather round, Ktowners. A new cycle began Monday, and I am going to explain it to you.
We just finished up with a ten week cycle revolving around squats, 2k row, and midline stabilization. We had some big PRs on the squats and 2k rows, and we also had some little PRs on both tests. We […]
We so hate to say goodbye to one of our best and brightest, Coach Miss J. She has been with us since the beginning, but now it is time to be on to bigger and better things in the state’s capital. She has spent over five years of making Knoxville a little bit more fit. […]
“The hips crave intensity, the shoulders crave complexity.”

The event will be August 2nd with the first workout beginning at 9AM. There will be 4 divisions: male Rx, female Rx, male Rxish, […]
How do you sum up the past 5 years? Where to even start? It’s been quite an adventure, occasionally a grind, and a helluva lot of fun. That much I know for sure.
In May of 2009 I was fortunate enough to help open a hole-in-the-wall, unknown to most, gym with a very different exercise methodology. […]
I was recently asked to weigh-in on a video published by Discovery News about the safety and efficacy of CrossFit. I was really surprised that Discovery Network would put out such shoddy work. I actually did not even realize it was them until Adam Gerken brought it to my attention. I am still surprised, but […]
Once again we find ourselves standing at the edge of the summer months, about to step into the shirtless, flex-all-the-time, show ‘em my goods season. Around this time of year, you’ll see a little extra “umph” from most people in the gym because they (naturally) want to look good when they pop that shirt off […]

If you haven’t noticed, your Coach, Lex, is quite a phenomenal CrossFitter and has some amazing upcoming opportunities. He heads to Vegas next month for the National Pro Fitness League’s final combine event. If he does well there, he could fulfill his desire of getting paid […]
