Have you registered for the Iron Star Games Yet? No? Well, your coach will be asking you to register soon. So I’ve compiled the top excuses you can use as a basis for saying no. Hint, I’ve also explained why each reason isn’t reflective of the reality of the Iron Star Games. 🙂
Every year I, Coach Paul, has built a Christmas themed workout. And every year, I try to outdo myself. 2020 might not be the year for many great things … but I am happy to say that it will be the year to remember for a CrossFit-themed Christmas WOD. There are many CrossFit Christmas Workouts out there. None compare to this one. Merry Christmas 🎄 and Happy WODS to Everyone❄.
Today we are 120 Members Strong. Are you thinking about becoming our 121st member? This post explains who we are, and where we are heading in the future.
Barbell Sumo Deadlift Form. It’s been a week of Personal Records for Coach Paul, so I thought I’d demo the form of the Sumo Deadlift with a Barbell. Plus the Sumo Deadlift is in the Iron Star Games, so you it’s time to start practicing.

When planning improvements for the future, it’s important to look back at why you started. People say, never look back. That’s crap. Learn from your mistakes, build on what works, and maintain the core principles that motivated you to start your business to begin with. It’s those principles that led to your initial success, and it will still be those same principles that will usher you into a better future.
