It's 4:31 A.M. I've been awake since 3:30 tossing and turning with no relief. I had a conversation with Pride RX ally Erin recently about the body knowing/communicating insomnia as a subconscious action, keeping you awake until you identify and address the source of conflict, thusly I am sitting up...

What have you done lately that has taken you out of your comfort zone? On Saturday my fellow Pride RXers and I headed over to Oleta River State Park to participate in the 2013 Super Spartan Race, which is an 8.3 mile obstacle course run in and through some tough... Continue reading

Today was a good day. Let's start with what happened last night. After a tough "regular life" 9-5er yesterday, I went into the box to get a WOD in and hopefully shake off the meh feeling that was clouding me all day. 2.19.12 SWOD 6x3 low bar back squats *185,... Continue reading

What do you do when you are unexpectedly knocked down? The question is purposefully vague and open to interpretation because that how life is. We make plans, strategize, asses, document, save, and prepare for what is to come, whether it is in the box, for a competition, or in everyday... Continue reading

As the site continues to develop, I was asked to provide a brief statement to describe what Pride RX is about. I share this with you all now. ABOUT US What began as a novel idea one day in 2011 has grown into a patchwork of social connectivity with CrossFit... Continue reading

Happy Monday Pride RXers. The weekend opened early on a gorgeous and cool Saturday morning. I headed to CrossFit 305 to watch and cheer the athletes competing at "Ice Monster 3" competition. Congratulations to Pride Rx Ambassador Carlos on his top 5 finish. Pride Rx Ally James was forced to... Continue reading

Last night's WOD went as follows: 5 rounds for time 200M run 20 ar squats 10 L-sit pull-ups 19:32 I scaled the L-sit pull-up. The movement should be performed as a strict pull up in the Lsit position which I am unable to do. The variation i did was kip... Continue reading

Do you have a movement/lift/skill that despite being in your wheelhouse, you can't stand? Typically, we don't like the things we have problems with (like my ongoing love/hate for chest to bar pull ups, and my downright disdain for rope climbs). However, I have found myself in the unusual position... Continue reading

Hope everyone enjoyed their respective weekends. Miami boasted another spectacular weather weekend filled with sunshine and blue skies. With Wodapalooza in the rear view, and having had the time to speak with my coach about specific gains, I am starting a new wave of endurance focused programming. The goal is... Continue reading

Wodapalooza got off to a wet and muddy start. Miami's always unpredictable weather was no match for the spirit of the CrossFitters in attendance. Here's how my day one broke down. WOD #1 A triathlon consisting of a 600 M paddleboard, 5000M stationary bike ride, and 100 double-unders. Originally it... Continue reading

Have you ever had a moment in your life so magical that when you look back, it feels like it was a dream? That is the only way to describe my experience at Wodapalooza II. Let's begin about a month ago when I made the decision NOT to compete. The... Continue reading

As part of the list of things that I want to focus on improving this year, establishing and maintaining a spiritual connection is among the top of the list. "Spirit", as per the Merriam-Webster dictionary, has 14 separate definitions. The 1st is as follows: An animating or vital principle held... Continue reading

I know how easy it is for people to get really pumped over great feats of physical prowess. It's why so many CrossFit Games spectators love the Olympic lifting ladders. The "how the hell do they do that" thought sparks wonder and curiosity, plus who doesn't love watching a bunch... Continue reading

This morning I had a shitty approach to the WOD. I was just thinking about this right now and it reminded me of the phrase "come correct". Urban Dictionary has several different definitions (click here for some good laughs) for this. The way I see it, if you don't have... Continue reading

Happy post Christmas greetings folks! I hope everyone enjoyed celebrating their respective holiday's. I spent Christmas with my family in Winter Park enjoying our traditional non-traditional Noche Buena dinner of grilled grass-fed rib eye steak, grilled eggplant, caprese salad, steamed broccoli, my mom's amazing rice and cheese casserole (it's legit...

With the Holiday season in full swing, it seems like the list of Holiday parties to attend gets longer and longer each year. While I am thrilled to spend time with my friends and family every chance I get, the abundance of partying is taking it's toll. I've gained 8... Continue reading

Hi again Pride RXers and Pride RX Allies, Before I begin, a word about the importance of our allies. In my experience (both in and out of the box), many of my great moments have been shared with those people in my life that are not LGBT. They have given... Continue reading
