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 […]

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”.

People drove a manual stick, had to wait for letters in the mail to hear from people, waited your […]

“It’s the Little Things that kill”

For my 1st attempt at a blog post I thought I would start small.  Like many of my daily thoughts often do, this lead me to think of a particular 90’s song lyric, but I’ll get to that later.  I don’t want this to be a negative rant, but rather insight […]

Coach Miranda on Her Journey with CrossFit and Body Image

CrossFit and body image. It’s not going to resonate with all of you, but it may just hit home in some way, shape, or form.

It is not easy to live in our society today. Everything is so focused on money, power, and beauty. And, with health and fitness, we are constantly flooded with what the […]
