Why Crossfit?

Posted by piphunt on January 27, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

If you’ve been following me over on Twitter, you may have noticed that I wrote a series about Crossfit for Skiers on Ski Magazines site.  The comments section is a continuous debate about the pros and cons of Crossfit, and the ability to use Crossfit to train specifically for skiing. It got me thinking about […]

Crossfit North Manly

Posted by piphunt on November 20, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Most places I visit you wouldn’t find a gym, let alone a crossfit affiliate. However, Manly is an exception. It’s just across the harbor from Sydney, and the lovely beaches, surf, and sailing are not the only things here keeping people active. Crossfit North Manly opened just a couple of months ago, which meant that […]

What Makes Hard Work?

Posted by piphunt on November 1, 2011 in Adventures of Pip

Are you really working hard? Can you work harder? Why are you answering me if you’re working your hardest? As a trainer, I am constantly reminded that many people come to Crossfit not knowing how to work hard.

While my posted workouts have been absent, the workouts definitely haven’t been! My class with Re Wikstrom and Hannah Whitney has been awesome; those girls have been working their butts off! I’m so proud of them! We’ve been skiing a little bit too. It’s awesome to put our training to the test (Even if our […]

There is No Way I Could Do a Box Jump Right Now….

Posted by piphunt on November 18, 2010 in Adventures of Pip

Welp, box jumps it is! Re called me on Tuesday “my body hurts!” Hannah said the same thing. In a mean way, I’m a little happy. It just means that you’re working hard and getting stronger! I’m so excited for them! Yesterday was day 2 of crossfit dryland, and just as hard as Monday. We […]

Working to Fail or Why I Train

Posted by piphunt on November 6, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Failure isn’t something many of us readily accept in our daily lives. After all, it is un-American to fail. But as the cliché goes, failure can make us stronger. Ironically, I’ve been pushing myself to the point of failure a lot lately. Bailing on squats, cleans, or dead lifts has become part of my daily […]

Dry Land Move of the Week

Posted by piphunt on October 28, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Pre -season ski training usually means squat, jump, deadlift, squat, jump into a squat and squat some more. This move isn’t anything different, just with a bit of a twist.
