Paleo Every Day Keeps the Doctor Away: Sam O’Neil

Paleo Every Day Keeps the Doctor Away: Sam O’Neil Interview by Lindsey Johnson If we were giving out awards like a high school yearbook, ”Miss Consistency” would probably be the superlative I’d give to Invictus Member Sam O’Niel. You can pretty much set your watch by Sam; she’s always here by 3:45 p.m. for the 4:00 p.m. class at Invictus Point Loma. She’s a bright, shining light, always happy to be here and always helping and working with her fellow classmates or partners in crime. I chatted with Sam so I could get to know her a little more and shed

Project RICO – Your Chance to GIVE this Holiday Season

Project RICO (Reaching Individuals through Caring Outreach) – Your Chance to GIVE this Holiday Season Written by Heather Hippensteel I can’t believe another year has come and gone, and another holiday season is upon us. The last two years we have had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the homeless in our San Diego community. So many don’t have a place to sleep, food to eat, shoes to wear, or other basic needs that you and I take for granted every day. The holiday season is a time for giving but far too many get caught

Crockpot Pulled Pork Chili

Crockpot Pulled Pork Chili Written by Lindsey Johnson It may be no secret that I miss the seasons – Fall especially! I pray for rain and a little chill in the air. In a few months I’ll be over it and back to my beach-going-ways; but for now, I’m really enjoying the fall months, even if they’re in the high seventies here in Southern California. It may also be no secret that I love being prepared but I do not love food prep. I thoroughly enjoy the outcome of having prepared meals for the week but the process of getting

What To Look For in a Workout Shoe

What To Look For in a Workout Shoe Written by Zach Erick With Nike entering the CrossFit shoe game this February, we are all going to have a few more options to choose from other than the “go to” Reebok CrossFit Nano. Now, I’m not interested in the holy wars of who makes the best shoe, but here are some things you should look for in whatever shoe you choose to complete your workout in. A stiff, hard sole: This is the reason why most CrossFitters choose the Nano over any other shoe – the sole. Most major shoe companies

Cavemen Don’t Live in Suits

Cavemen Don’t Live in Suits Written by Kim McLaughlin For many people, the idea of eating healthy, clean, real food for every meal is a perfectly attainable goal – in an ideal world. The reality of the situation however, is that, for many of us, our lives involve long days of travel and business meetings and happy hours and work gatherings and all of these things make it difficult to live off of bagged lunches and reheatable dinners. No one wants to be “that guy” in the corner of the room drinking out of their reuseable water bottle eating chicken

Stonewall Peak Trail Review

Stonewall Peak Trail Review Written by Zach Erick With the Summer heat coming to an end, it is time to get back outside and enjoy some of the many hikes San Diego has to offer.

Stonewall Peak is located in Descanso, 50 miles North-East of Downtown San Diego. It takes about an hour to get there and once you pass through Santee, you are greeted with a

Test Your Mental Fortitude With Wall Balls!

Test Your Mental Fortitude With Wall Balls! Written by Zach Erick Wall ball shots are one of my favorite movements in CrossFit. I look at wall ball shots as more of a game than I do an exercise. Whomever can hit the target _____ amount of reps within _____ amount of time is the winner. For many people, however, wall ball shots are their least favorite movement. This could possibly be because of the coordination and accuracy component that wall ball shots require. It could also be the fact that, like the burpee, there is never an excuse to stop.

New Cycle of the Invictus Nutrition Coaching Program – Redefining Nutrition Written by Nuno Costa We’ve now done three cycles of our habit-based Nutrition Coaching Program and are ready to launch the fourth.

In the past, we’ve run the same program for folks with both body composition goals AND performance goals – but now we decided it is time to hone in on one of those goals. This program is for anyone who is looking

The 2015 Firefighter Throwdown

  When most of us see flames, we run the other direction – but that’s not true for the heroic men and women who put their lives on the line every day to save our homes, lives, pets and natural habitats. Here at the home of Invictus – in the wildfire land of Southern California – we know all too well the tragedies that can come along with fire season and many of our friends and members have lost their homes and pets over the years to wildfire catastrophes. As we sit on the edge of our seats and in
