  1. I personally would like to see more blogs on the exercises themselves and how it benefits us. What muscles does it work, how can we obtain better form taking into consideration that everybody’s “best” form will differ slightly based on body type, etc.. oh…and less photos of the same people over and over 😀 I think the more we understand about the exercises, the better off we are especially if we need to do at home workouts, and also the less risk for injury, etc…. What may be proper form for one, may be slightly different for another. If you were to ask me what muscles I used in an exercise, I may have been doing bad form without knowing it and ended up working a different group of muscles. How do we tell when we have acquired proper form? Squats are a perfect example for me due to knee alignment issues and my current injury. But how do I know I’ve obtained proper form so I don’t reinjure? What muscles should I be feeling? I don’t know about others but I like to know alot of details so I can do everything in my power to achieve proper form. I’ve learned the hard way with squats and what works best for me but I now know those answers for my particular knee alignment issue and tricks/tips I was taught along my long recovery!

    More blogs on what foods and/or supplements that can enhance your performance as well and how. For example, brussel sprouts (low fat, vitamin a, folacin, potassium, calcium, vitamin C, high in protein) and how it also is not only beneficial for diabetics & hypoglycemics but also provides protection against inflammatory diseases like arthritis…..everything that could benefit a CF’er. Now….just got to get up the courage to try them 😀

  2. I remember writing Chris a few months before I joined CrossFit. At the time, I was in the middle of weighing the pros and cons about moving back to Sioux Falls. A friend of mine did CF in Rapid City. She updated her Facebook about it often so I decided to write her because I knew there was a CF in Sioux Falls. She only had positive things to say so I Googled CFSF. I came across your blog and was instantly hooked. After about 30 minutes of reading, I knew CFSF was the push I needed to move back.

    I’m definitely a timid person at times so it took me about a week to get the courage to write CFSF about joining. I had all these thoughts racing through my head. “Are they as nice as they seem?” “Do I need to try out?” “Do they play elevator music?” These thoughts went on and on so I finally got it over with and wrote Chris. I told him I wouldn’t be able to join for another month or so but that I was very serious. He wrote back with more CF info and then said “Check out our blog to know what we’re about.” At that moment, my initial perceptions of CFSF were confirmed and those silly thoughts no longer mattered. Everything I needed to know was in the blogs, which told me that CFSF was not only a place for physical growth but also mental growth, inspiration, education, and laughter.

    With that said, thank you for all of the blogs and for making my daily commute bearable. Here’s to a wonderful 2011!
