Invictus Point Loma Team Report

Invictus Point Loma Team Report

Invictus Point Loma Team Report Written by Lindsey Johnson When we first opened the doors at Invictus Point Loma, there wasn’t a competition class on the schedule. Fast forward a year and a half and Invictus again sends two teams to the California Regional – and our Point Loma team was one of them! I couldn’t be more proud of how far this team has come, especially in the last six weeks leading up to Regionals. All of the members of  the Invictus Point Loma team came from the competition class. They didn’t do any special programming. They didn’t do

Nairobi Romero: The Invictus Prodigy

Nairobi Romero: The Invictus Prodigy

Nairobi Romero: The Invictus Prodigy Interview by Sea of Green Member Marty Rojas At the beginning of the year, I switched to working out in the mornings and had the opportunity for one of our youngest members, Nairobi Romero, to be one of my semi-private coaches as she was shadowing Melissa for her internship. She is one of the nicest and strongest people that you will meet at Invictus. I interviewed her the day of the Open 15.3 workout, and she was extremely nervous about the workout (which she crushed). Even with the nervousness of the 15.3 workout, there was

5 Mobility Books Every Coach Should Read Written by Calvin Sun “The book you don’t read won’t help.” – Jim Rohn Trying to be a high-performance CrossFit athlete with poor mobility is like trying to drive a race car with square wheels. You can do it, but as you can imagine, that car is not going perform optimally or last you very long.

While there are many books I could recommend, I figured it might be helpful for me

Honor the Fallen this Memorial Day

Honor the Fallen this Memorial Day

Cover them over with beautiful flowers, Deck them with garlands, those brothers of ours, Lying so silent by night and by day Sleeping the years of their manhood away. Give them the meed they have won in the past; Give them the honors their future forcast; Give them the chaplets they won in the strife; Give them the laurels they lost with their life. ~Will Carleton

One Very Successful Weekend in the Books, and One Coming Up!

One Very Successful Weekend in the Books, and One Coming Up!

One Very Successful Weekend in the Books, and One Coming Up!  Written by C.J. Martin The first weekend of the 2015 CrossFit Regionals was a huge success for Invictus athletes. On Sunday afternoon, we saw the reigning women’s champion, Ms. Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, standing on top of the podium in the South Regional, and our young phenom, 18-year-old high school student Maddy Myers, beside her claiming fifth place and punching her ticket to the CrossFit Games in her first season. That result in and of itself would make me one very proud and happy coach, but what made it so much

Pre-Workout Skill Honing

Pre-Workout Skill Honing

Pre-Workout Skill Honing Written by Nichole DeHart (Originally posted on March 4, 2012) Okay, I have a confession. I am somewhat neurotic. I love writing to-do lists, crossing things off my to do lists, scheduling every minute of my day and trying to be as productive as humanly possible throughout the day (I often fall well below my standards of efficiency). If you know me well, this isn’t a confession. You have probably already diagnosed me with many neuroses that revolve around my love of being productive. Sometimes my love of productivity will even be applied to other people (I
