A little dirt never hurt nobody!

How do you make CrossFit apart of your life?

What are some tips you would give that works for you?

Life can get crazy at times…work, family, friends, bills, kids activities, homework, holidays, no time….etc.

Bottom line is you get it done or you don’t.

So how do you do it? The great thing about our community is we support each other, learn from each other, and get better together.

We are moving into one of the busiest times of the year. It’s time to stick together now more than ever!

Let’s hear it!

Athlete of the Week

Posted in Members on November 16, 2009 by Crossfit Sioux Falls

Our “Athlete of the Week” is Michael Brownfield! He works out hard everyday! He comes early and stays late. Michael is a natural athlete who is committed to getting stronger, faster and better. He is one that everyone looks up to on the whiteboard.

This man is an inspiration to all of the athletes in our community and we are lucky to have such a motivated man.

Go Mike B!

It’s all about FRAN…

Modern Fitness Standards…How Do You Measure Up?

Posted in Crossfit Philosophy, In the News on November 13, 2009 by Crossfit Sioux Falls


Interesting blog found about the different standards of physical fitness testing for Utah Peace Officers, Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test, The Seals, Firefighters and pro Basketball and Football Combines.


How do you stack up against them?

Standards too low? Too High?

What are your thoughts?

-Good Luck tomorrow to the Fran challengers…I heard she is in a very very bad mood this week:-0
