5 Thoughts on the Crossfit Movie “Fittest on Earth”

fittest on earth

I recently watched the Crossfit movie “Fittest on Earth – A Decade of Fitness”. This movie/documentary tracks the annual crossfire games as the top crossfire athletes meet up to compete. It was very impressive seeing elite athletes perform very tough and punishing workouts but a lot of perspective is needed for the vast majority of people (the general population) who are not professional crossfire athletes. Many will watch and come to the conclusion that they just need to work to failure everytime they work out. This is the wrong conclusion and a dangerous one when it comes to your health and well being. Continue reading “5 Thoughts on the Crossfit Movie “Fittest on Earth””

Tom Brady & Your Nutritional Choices

With SuperBowl Sunday in full effect it’s a good time to discuss nutritional options. Being a Giants fan, it’s not easy seeing the Patriots being successful while living in Boston. At least we’ll always have David Tyree. This article is the first in a 2 part series. The second article, “The Personal Paleo Code – A How To” will be published on Wednesday, February 4th. I came across this Tom Brady article on how well he looks after himself. It is a fascinating insight into Brady and the “lengths” he goes to make sure he stays in peak condition. The reality is you don’t have to be a multi-millionaire to take this approach. You do however need to make some honest decisions with yourself.
