The 1% Solution: Couples who sweat together, stay together…

Some may say… “No way am I getting sweaty and gross in front of the guy I like.” Or, “I’m not interested in training with a chick'” (not challenging enough, what if I look like a fool, what if she kicks my butt); or I remember a day when I told myself, “I have my thing, they have theirs, we …

Wendler, AMRAP and Toes to Bar: Just another Day at Crossfit Kitsilano

There was a buzz in the air as I pulled up out front of CrossFit Kitsilano this evening.  The 5:30 class was just finishing up and the usual bunch were standing around, gassed and covered in a thin film of sweat.  Obviously the result of another great day of programming by Coach Fynn.  I had a quick glance at the board and was …

A 20-minute visit from Cindy

An oldie but a goodie today at Crossfit Vancouver – Cindy.  An original Girl WOD, “Cindy”, is a classic first time WOD for baseline testing of beginners and is still challenging for the advanced CrossFitters alike.  I haven't done Cindy for about 18-months (last time was January 2010) when I gave Cindy a go with strict pull-ups instead of using …
