Big Kid At Heart
I like to play. I’m a big kid. I could play almost any competitive group activity for hours.
I think that’s one of the reasons I have enjoyed CrossFit so much these past few months.
I also enjoy working out, and trying to improve my fitness. With CrossFit, I get to do that while hanging out with a bunch of people who want to do the same thing.
My first shot at CrossFit wasn’t successful, having quit after only a month. Looking back, I think I allowed myself to be intimidated by my lack of ability, and I definitely didn’t take advantage of the social support offered by the group at Friction.
I realize now that was a huge mistake.
I love the workouts, but it’s how awesome everyone is at Friction that gets me excited to come to the box. The only issue I have now is that I can’t make it there every day!

“We pride ourselves as being more than just a fitness facility. We want to develop ourselves and athletes to be the best possible version, inside and out.”
The health and fitness industry is a very broad and uniquely diversified culture in the sense that every training style and gym brand has its own special culture and specific benefits to it. At Friction CrossFit we are happy to have the opportunity to educate first...
“So as you end the open season and return to your regular fitness routine let’s reestablish some places to improve and think about some areas that were exposed. ” – Coach Bobby
“A good combination of learning comes from watching weightlifters who lift well (…) and studying the resources that are in good standing with the sport(..)” – Coach Mike
“Want better snatches and jerks? How about better shoulder mobility and stability? Do the Turkish Get Up (TGU).” – Coach Mike
“In the snatch, clean, and jerk, the shins matter because they dictate where the knees and hips can go as well as what position is quad dominant or hamstring/hip dominant. Surprise, surprise; our body is interconnected.” – Coach Mike
“The athletes who don’t regularly olympic lift, may be missing out on things, whether they know it or not.” – Coach Mike
