FINDING AN OUTLET

GET TO KNOW ADAM ROGOCKI

"Since starting, it has definitely become the main outlet in my life.  I work in finance downtown, after sitting all day it is important for me to be able to do something to get me moving again.  I have also used it as a mental outlet."

COACH RICHMOND'S TOP 3

COACH RICHMOND'S TOP 3 NEW MOVEMENTS FOR THE 2017 CROSSFIT OPEN

 "With the Open fast approaching, it’s time to try and be one with Dave Castro, the director of the CrossFit Games, to predict the surprises for the upcoming 2017 CrossFit Open. I’ve given up on trying to predict the workouts, I’ve even created a spreadsheet with past workouts to try to guess what the following year’s workouts would be (maybe I’ll share that one day) but trying to guess the twist that Dave puts in each year seems more fun."

NEW YEAR, NEW ME, ...RIGHT?

ASHLEY TACKLES THE IDEA OF NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS & FINDS A WAY TO STAY SANE IN 2017 

"The likelihood of people sticking with a New Year’s resolution... the numbers are grim. There are, after all, reasons why every publication under the sun run workout stories - they sell. Rather than regurgitating what I wrote last year in New Year’s Resolutions are Bullshit, I thought I’d go a different route and talk about: How to Stay Sane in 2017."

LIONHEAD #96 | YOU'RE SELLING YOURSELF SHORT | COMMUNITY PROFILE | SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS | NEW PODCAST & MORE..

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IT

ASHLEY DISCUSSES THE POWER OF BELIEF

 "So much of achieving is believing. Sure there's skill and ability, hell maybe even a bit of luck, but if you don't believe off the jump that you CAN, you're selling yourself short."

FEELING CONFIDENT & STRONG

COMMUNITY PROFILE: ERINA CHARETTE

"It made me feel confident and strong/independent, something I struggled with.  It really was life changing for me at the time. I started training for races and almost died during my first 10km race. I made sure to train smarter after that."

SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS

ACADEMY HOLISTIC NUTRITIONIST NATALIE NIDDAM HELPS YOU SURVIVE THE HOLIDAYS.

"The Festive Season is finally upon us and with it, one of the biggest challenges faced by all, including my clients. Is the weeks of parties, lunches, dinners, with friends, family, & work. I won't lie, it still won't be easy to turn away from temptation but there are strategies you can use to make it easier."

NAT DISHES ON THE HOLIDAYS >

THE PODCAST: "BIOHACKY THINGS" 

EP. 88 - DHANI & NAT TALK MUSE MEDITATION HEADBAND, BONE BROTH PROTEIN POWDER & MORE BIOHACKY THINGS

"It's been a minute since Nat Niddam joined me on the show. It's always a fun conversation that's packed with valuable nutrition & lifestyle takeaways. 
This episode starts with a procrastination confessional, an ode to imperfection and (believe it or not) a MEDITATION COMPETITION/WORKOUT using my new favourite technology."
