Eating in the name of…

Eating in the name of…
Dammit, CBo.  I don’t want to hear you talk about food.

Trust me, I get it.  It’s not a topic I want to talk about, but it’s something I need to.  They say preachers’ topics often imitate what they’re going through personally, so this post goes into that bucket.  Except I’m not […]

I hate rowing…

I hate rowing. There, I said it! Dare I say I’m not alone? I’m sure some of you out there feel the same way. “But wait a minute Mark,” you might say, “I see you rowing a lot & you took that Rowing course in Memphis back in August. You must love to row?!?” Well, […]

Learn How to Learn

Being the husband of a teacher, and more specifically a special education teacher, I am often picking up the various styles of learning that Katie uses in her classroom as she interacts with a myriad of students.  Of course, having a background in exercise physiology, I often find myself pondering the implications concerning how we […]

Knowledge bombs from the B-52 Samantha Lane

By |February 4th, 2015|Uncategorized|1 Comment

Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger; the mantra of many CrossFitters. I will definitely not devalue pushing ourselves to our limits, but is this always true? Is an injury worth it?

The blog posts over the past few weeks have touched on safety, but I want to talk about it a little more as you […]

Programming. We hear this word tossed around all the time at the gym; “Man, the programming

is a little lacking”, “Dude, sweet programming, Caleb.  You are the best ever!” (that has never

been uttered, btw).  Well, if you aren’t down with the lingo, it may sound like we are all executing

some pretty rad functions in DOS or […]

<read entire post with Explosions in the Sky music playing in the background>

During the CrossFit Open 2015 this year, area CrossFit gyms in Knoxville will be hosting a Friday Night Lights style event. The idea is that the location of the get together will change week to week. Each week, once the workout is released, […]

Being Content in Your CrossFit Journey

By |January 29th, 2015|Uncategorized|3 Comments

With the 2015 CrossFit Open only a few weeks away, I thought that this would be a good time to drive home a few points as we enter a five week season that can be either exciting and competitive or stressful and disengaging. Sometimes we have to refresh our memories as to why we chose […]

Lessons Learned in 5 Years at Ktown – by Coach Dave Parmly

By |January 26th, 2015|Uncategorized|2 Comments



The oh-so familiar definition of CrossFit is “Constantly varied functional movements at high intensity across broad time and modal domains”.  This definition is part of the difficult process of putting objective specific elements to the highly subjective concept of “Fitness”.

The Long Haul

            The eloquent songstress Miranda Lambert has a song titled “Automatic.” She speaks of a peaceful time in which things were not as automatic as they are in the current society we live in. People drove a manual stick, had to wait for letters in the mail to hear from people, waited your […]
