Meet Kryssie Chandler – Sorrento Valley Member of the Month!

Kryssie is the definition of dedication and commitment! She is able to balance her successful career, being a mom and a wife, while still showing up everyday (most times twice a day) for her workouts. She puts in full effort, is coachable and is all about the community. With her busy schedule she still finds time to open up her home to the competition crew for a BBQ. Oh and did we mention that she won first place in the Team Series master division 45-49 with her partner Kim Brutzman? Yes and she does competitions! Some may say she is Superwoman! Invictus is fortunate to have Kryssie, her husband Dave and daughter Kim apart of the community!

Solutions for Common Mobility & Stability Issues
Written by Invictus Athlete Josh Littauer
(Follow-Up to: Mobility vs Stability published on December 11, 2017)

In yesterday’s blog post, Mobility vs Stability, I talked about some common mobility and stability issues that prevent us from moving through full ranges of motion. Be sure to read that post first as it will help you identify whether more mobility work or stability work would benefit for your fitness. Once you have identified your issue(s) then read on below for a few drills to incorporate into your routine to address those issues.

Mobility vs Stability
Written by Invictus Athlete Josh Littauer

If you have been in CrossFit for any amount of time you have probably had a coach at some point or another tell you to work on your mobility. Rightfully so, many of us sit at desks for multiple hours a day, drive in cars, sit in meetings, etc. that cause mobility issues and prevent us from moving through full ranges of motion. A topic that is talked about less frequently is stability. This is the discussion I would like to create, along with identifying whether more mobility or stability work would benefit for your fitness.
