How To Stay Motivated During The Competition Season

How To Stay Motivated During The Competition Season Written by Calvin Sun Competing in the sport of CrossFit is not recommended for the mentally uncommitted. At the competitive level, the sport is just as demanding mentally as it is physically. It can be hard to stay motivated through the hours and hours of exhausting and arduous training. Your life begins to revolve around training, recovering, eating, sleeping, and training some more. Things can get a little repetitive and motivation can begin to wane for some athletes. You might begin to question why you are putting yourself through such an experience.

20 Questions with Coach Cat

20 Questions with Coach Cat Interview by Sea of Green Member Alicia Winquist I had the honor of being able to interview one of our newest coaches here at Invictus, Cat Blatner. Cat has become one of the regular evening coaches at the Downtown location and I always enjoy having her as a coach. She is super knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions – and pretty much about anything. She’s also super helpful with offering modifications for any movement (which I often need- damn bum knee!). She’s also really quick to laugh and crack a joke. That being said

The Jason Nolan Memorial Workout

The Jason Nolan Memorial Workout Written by Kim McLaughlin On April 2nd, the Invictus community tragically lost one of our beloved members, Jason Nolan. Jason left us far too soon; his laughter and light was contagious, and his early departure from our lives has left a palpable hole in our community. It wouldn’t be a true homage to Jason’s legacy if we did not celebrate in style and do so together, as a community.  We can’t think of a better way to honor Jason than with a memorial workout. Please join us this Saturday, April 25th at Invictus Point Loma

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting Written by Nuno Costa If you’ve been doing CrossFit for any length of time, you’ve probably heard the suggested way of eating is either “Paleo” or “Zone”. But every once in awhile, you may hear some other terms being thrown around, such as “Intermittent Fasting”. Coach Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, describes “World Class Fitness in 100 words: to eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruits, little starches and no sugars…”  Be sure to get that dialed in before looking into more advanced nutrition regimens such as intermittent fasting. So what exactly is ‘Intermittent Fasting’ and

Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

Comfortable Being Uncomfortable Written by Kim McLaughlin “Get comfortable being uncomfortable.” This is a common phrase that can be heard in CrossFit gyms across the country. For me, as a competitive athlete, the phrase makes sense. In the heat of competition, I know things are going to be hard. I know my muscles are going to burn. I know it’s going to be hard to breathe. I know I’m not going to be comfortable trying to work out faster, harder, or longer than my competitors. Getting comfortable being uncomfortable directly translates to my goals in the sport of CrossFit. I
