When Matt first started at Trident he struggled just to get a bar locked out overhead, without squatting. He has worked hard with Coach Zach on an individual mobility program over the last couple of months, and is now able to perform movements he never realized were possible for him!!! Keep it up, Matt! Increasing your mobility means improved form, performance, and less risk of injury... Move better, improve your life!!!

Guess what Leigh Ann Wolfe is up to?? She is climbing Denali this spring (May-June) with 3 other women unguided! "The Denali Girls" will be sharing their experiences as they prepare for the climb on the following site: http://thedenaligirls.com Here are some of Leigh Ann's thoughts as she and her friends get ready for this trip: When we started planning our expedition we realized that there is a huge gap in women-specific resources on expedition climbing. We tend to be the minority in the climbing community anyway, but especially in big mountain climbing. Everything from woman-time issues to women's clothes and boots, there simply isn't a whole lot out there. In an effort to do our part to fill this gap, we decided to write a blog about our planning process and experience. We hope our blog will become a resource for other woman climbers, as well as a way for family and friends to be a part of the process.
"I know a lot of us are still reeling from the #Seahawks win [...] a win that was 4 plays away from the opposite outcome. So many amazing lessons came out of that game. That was probably the worst I've ever seen Wilson and Kearse play both individually and collectively. Even the best athletes have a bad day. But both of these men (and the entire team) dug deep, believed in their hearts they were winners, and pulled of an incredible feat. Their leader, their coach, never stopped believing in them or his team. He didn't get angry, start screaming or throw his head piece. He encouraged and coached and loved them. We're all going to have bad games, bad presentations, bad meetings, bad days, but what we do to overcome those bad situations speaks to our true character and the winner in each of us." - Coach Gretchen
I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough. - Marissa Mayer - President and CEO of Yahoo!
Unless a child has a serious allergy or medical issue, there is no reason why kids can’t learn to eat the same foods as their parents from infancy. A child who eats everything is a child with a valuable skill – one who can eat out, travel, and be healthy with ease.
Athlete Spotlight .:. Eileen McCracken Here's a great picture illustrating the laughter & fun that always can be seen & heard when Eileen (on the left) is at the box. She's been known to lift heavy weight and push beyond her limits when it comes to CrossFit (& the crazy things I ask her to do as her Coach.) I'm truly amazed how far she's come in the past year and half with CFCK. Just today, she was doing a heavy set of Deadlifts that had been her 1RM last month and she makes it look effortless. Last Spring, she participated in the Ski to Sea Race on the canoe leg with another CFCK athlete and proceeded to host the after-party dinner at her house, which was so amazing and the food was yummy (plus the homebrew her husband supplied). And on her epic birthday this past October 31st, I surprised her with singing happy birthday, a mirrorball, streamers, balloons, and a fun workout, but it was Eileen once again showing up with a special treat (homemade truffles) for us all at 6AM. She's so very thoughtful. Most recently, she's been known to get up in the early early mornings and following her Coach on a new adventure in the outdoors called DBWOD. Once again such an AWESOME athlete to have at CFCK. Here's Eileen in her own words -->> "I was at a point where I just wanted to do something for myself. Now, I enjoy the support and positive outlook that you all give to that part of my day. And, I am getting stronger, love that" #keepmovingforward #athletespotlight #crossfitforlife
We have 6 people that just graduated from On-Ramp and will be joining class. As always, if you see a new face, please introduce yourself and make them feel welcome (and feel free to help them AND your coach by helping them navigate through class). Being the new person in class can be overwhelming, let's make them feel at ease!
Congratulations gentlemen and welcome to the 2+ Year club! Emile L., Calvin C., and Ryan H. attend the 6:00 AM and 7:30 PM class, the two classes furthest apart on our schedule. They also came to us with very different physical backgrounds, abilities, and restrictions. 2 years of hard work, dedication to being present, and they achieve this honor together with a mutual understanding of the same joys and challenges one experiences in pursuing fitness. Calvin regularly attends the 7:30 Pm class with Coach Sean. This is what Sean had to say about Calvin. "Calvin is persistent, hard working, and he is vocally supportive of others. " I couldn't agree more! Emile comes at 6 AM and XX and Scott both see him regularly in their class. Scott and I both recognize one of Emile's most standout qualities as a trainee is patience to make steady progress and attention to great technique. I'm sure this is a transfer from his yoga practice with Jason Stein at Portland Ashtanga Yoga. Ryan comes at 6 AM as well and is one strong dude. We suspect it is from years of picking up wine barrels and building his own wine company, Union Wine Company. Our gym video was inspired by the amazing Union Wine video that he shared with us. Well done gentlemen, well done!
