By |December 16th, 2014|Uncategorized|1 Comment

Dear Crossfit Ktown Members,

As many of you know, our fearless leader, Mr. Grant Scalf, has taken a well-deserved vacation, leaving you all in my gentle hands. Despite his absence and the Holiday Season, the show must go on as they say. So, I have a few announcements as we close out the amazing year that […]

‘Tis the Season of Giving!

By |November 11th, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Hello Ktowners! My name is Janis, the 9 AM class, and I recently returned to Ktown after taking some time off while my little ones worked through the never-sit-still toddler phases and into little kid-dom; mommy can now safely workout at the gym again, even with kiddos in tow.

Introduction aside, I know that many of […]

Something Wicked This Way Comes

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 […]

Tempo squats and more!

By |August 14th, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|0 Comments

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 […]

The times, they are a’changin’…

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. […]

Hips and Shoulders

By |July 10th, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|0 Comments

“The hips crave intensity, the shoulders crave complexity.”

Where I heard this is lost on me now, but I love how simple a concept it illustrates. A vast majority of our training revolves around the hips and shoulders. And these two joints look and perform very similarly. We even go as far as to speak of […]

Goodbyes are such sweet sorrow…

By |June 27th, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|2 Comments

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. […]

CF Hate Reaches Record Highs

By |June 4th, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|0 Comments

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 […]
