We train HARD! We train to get RESULTS! That is the obvious. What about something that is maybe even more important and sometimes overlooked…the mental toughness CrossFit provides.

CrossFit bleeds through much more than the physical benefits we push past mental and physical barriers more than ever and during every single workout, if YOU truly push yourself.

Well…do you?

All of these 3 aspects, confidence, character, and mental toughness, go hand in hand and build off of each other. Be confident in your abilities and accomplishments, build character through the ups and downs of training, and always believe in yourself during the workouts and find the strength and mental toughness that is within you.

Congrads to Sable Mccay!

Sable helps us with the daycare in the evenings, but boy does she kick butt in the mornings with the WOD’s. She is consistent, hard working and positive. She is just starting to tap into her potential. I remember when she first started and to see her now with how much stronger and faster she is, is truly awesome!

Thank you Sable for all you do. We appreciate you!

Blackhillsmilmarathon

Last weekend a few CrossFitters from Sioux Falls ran in the Military Marathon in the Black Hills. Becky Langloss, Sondra Vogt, and Amber Brown all competed in the race with their only main source of training of CrossFit.

Well Becky finished the race 1st Place!!! And Sondra came in 3rd place!

A marathon is a tremendous accomplish for an athlete. They all attributed there CrossFit training that not only got them through the race but allowed them such an impressive finish.

Way to go Girls!

What kind of improvements have you noticed in your daily and recreational activities thanks to CrossFit training?

CrossFit Sioux Falls on Kelo with the Bod Pod

Last week I had a chance to do the Bod Pod on KELO TV. The Bod Pod is a body fat and caloric analyzer. It is the latest form of technology and gives you the most accurate information vs. body calipers or a dunk tank.

The reason why I would suggest it is to give yourself the information of how much calories you burn on a daily basis as well as your accurate body fat percentage.

It is a great tool to use as a starting point and tracker for body composition.
