Programming at CrossFit Reach

June 22, 2017

Good morning Reach Army! Lately I've had a lot of people ask me about the evolving programming at CrossFit Reach. I figured now would be a great time to provide some more insight into why we do what we do. So sit back and grab a cold beverage. You might be here for a while. We are a CrossFit gym. We go by the CrossFit methodology of fitness. I would like to go through a couple of CrossFit's fitness standards and adapt that to how we prog

The Open is over, now what?

April 12, 2016

This may have been a question a lot of you were asking post-CrossFit Open 2017. You aren't the only one. Now is a time to reflect on your year and decide what's next for you in your journey of fitness. It's almost as if some of us were so focused and zoned in during the Open season, and now that it's over we're wondering what to do next.

Over the last 9 years that I've been in the fitness industry I've met hundreds (probably thousands) of people who have come into my life and gym looking for help. And over the course of that time I've learned one thing...the reason they give for wanting help is never the real reason.  Everyone always says "I want to get in better shape and lose weight." But that's not the reason. Let's face it...everyone wants to get in better shape, star

Do You Accessorize?

February 18, 2015

When it comes to CrossFit, everyone loves to do the big movements. Anything with a barbell, pullups, rowing and burpees (ok maybe not burpees).  It's important to work the major movements and lifts as it makes us stronger and healthier overall.  But all too often we forget to accesorize.  No, I'm not talking about matching your nano's with your wrist wraps (not that there is anything wrong with that) or coordinating  your h
