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 […]

CBo weighs in (on embracing that journey)

By |May 23rd, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|1 Comment

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 […]

Open Over, What Now?

Every year we go through the same thing, feelings of sadness, despair, and depravity all because the CrossFit Open is over. If this is you…you’re crazy! The Open is over, it’s time to party. Time to do some fun workouts, skilled movements, technical exercises, and learn something new. We do this all […]

By |April 16th, 2014|CrossFit Ktown Knoxville, Uncategorized|5 Comments


And so the 2014 CrossFit Open has come to a close. Training has switched gears from the moving light weights in lower complex movements really fast over and over in to a weightlifting cycle that you are experiencing full force right now. With the close of the 2014 Open comes many reflections which I am […]

“It is not the inn, but the road.” – Mister Maxism

Death, taxes, and the CrossFit Open.  Inevitabilities.  And every time one of these certainties presents itself there are several inescapable reactions to them.  Death brings with it many different emotions depending on the circumstance and relationship.  Taxes most often bring gloom and despair – the […]
