What Are You Doing That’s Better (my ode to crossfit)

So, this isn’t for or against CrossFit. As many criticisms as I have, I probably have just as many things I can support, as is the case with most things. What this is about pertains to the massive backlash against the whole “cult fit” movement. What I find to be funny, and almost annoying, is that MANY of the people I see that are either posting these anti crossfit rants or commenting on one that someone else posted, are fat out of shape people who know nothing about how to challenge themselves in a physical manner. Jumping on the “trash crossfit” band wagon gives them an excuse to continue going to the gym, walking at 3.0 for 30 minutes on a treadmill and doing a couple of weight machines while talking to the person next to them. The one thing I’ll say about crossfit is that it takes people WAY out of their comfort zone and teaches them how to actually “train” rather than “work out”. There’s a big difference and most of you won’t ever know what it is, and those are the majority of the people commenting and posting on all these articles I’m referring to. If you’re an athlete or are educated to understand the difference, you’re obviously excluded from this. So don’t get your panties in a bundle. My point is, criticize all you want, question everything BUT, make sure that you’re doing something better and actually understand the basic philosophy of the arena in which you’re throwing your opinions into. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t care for it much as a whole. Just as most people could criticize my methodology, and do. But, most of them push it harder than you ever will, using safe methods or not. However you choose to get yourself into shape, you need to TRAIN, not workout. And if you don’t know the difference, shut the fuck up.

Motor City Bootcamp notes for 9/7


“Luck is the last dying wish for those that think winning can happen by accident. Sweat, on the other hand, is for those that know it’s a choice”
Special notes
- Brennan Ryan, you are a GOD… knocked out the Woodstock 100 mile ultra run (alone) this past weekend. You and Dan Omans are my heroes. But Dan’s been my hero longer because he ran it last year. I was going to run it too, but my vagina was sore. (for all of those that were annoyed by my vagina comment last week)
- Lauren DeHart, who married that dude that knocked her up. Congrats to finally making it a respectable relationship. JOKING! We had fun – thank you for the invite
Motor City Bootcamp notes
- This weeks training schedule can be found on the site
- What about a noon burst/boxing session on W and F? We’ll pick up the boxing for those that want to get in some mitts and sparring. For those that want to train in a more conventional way, I’ll have that going on too. In other words, if you don’t want to box… don’t. It’ll be like any other burst session we do. Give me some feedback
- will be going through some major updates over the next couple of weeks. Please excuse the “noise”

MCB Training Notes for 8/24


“Losing sucks, don’t suck”
MCB Training Notes
- This weeks training schedule is posted. W, Th and F sessions will meet at the Chester Deck roof and the programs will be posted on FB at the Motor City Bootcamp page the day before. Follow it, don’t care if it’s more pushups than what you want to do. If you were good at deciding what to do on your own, you’d be doing it – xo
- M and T am sessions – CONFIRM A SPOT. Are you seeing this Kari? CONFIRM A SPOT… And, if you confirm a spot and don’t show (Lauren), plan to run (lots) with a load (dumbells) when I see you next.
