  • Tis The Season...Are You Ready?
    Tis The Season...Are You Ready?

    Tis the Season to Keep Training! Fa La La La La La La La Laaaaa!
    I know, it doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, and I won’t torture you with any more versus on reaching goals, working hard, or community spirit. The fact is that this is the time of year when even the most dedicated athletes can let family, work, and holiday cheer get in the way of the goals they have worked so hard to achieve. Many of you may be traveling and enjoying your holidays out of town. This is the time of year when you need to take the time to keep on working out and eating right so that you can hit the ground running when everyone else is still planning their New Year’s resolutions.

    If you are still in town then keep on doing what you are doing. Getting into WildFire to train is going to help with the stress of all the Holiday fun. If you are traveling or just can’t make it into the gym then take the time to get your workouts in. It doesn’t have to be a full hour. The best part about learning all of the different exercises we teach in CrossFit is that you can get an AWESOME workout done in 20 minutes or less. Starting today, I am going to post a No Equipment Necessary workout to the blog so that as you travel, you can continue your path of success and fitness. If you are with family, have them join you. You really want to impress your friends and family, show them the mental toughness and dedication you have to improving your life through nutrition and fitness. You never know when you might turn them onto something that could improve their life forever!

    Understand, I am not telling you that you can’t have fun during the holidays and eat your favorite cookies that only your Mom could make (my Mom’s cookies are awesome!). This is WHY you do it…so that you can enjoy yourself, not feel guilty, and truly enjoy your time with your loved ones. So stay tuned each day (yes, including the weekends and the days of the actual Holiday) for a new workout. If you want to post your scores to let everyone know the work you put in then fantastic because during this season of indulgence you have the opportunity to be better than ever and show the kind of work ethic, courage, and attitude that most people wish for under the tree. The entire WildFire CrossFit Community is behind you as we say HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

  • Jingle Bell Run on Saturday & SNATCH-TASTIC TODAY!!
    Jingle Bell Run on Saturday & SNATCH-TASTIC TODAY!!

    This Saturday the WildFire CrossFit Team is heading up the street to Reach 11 Sports Complex to participate in the Jingle Bell Run! This is a 5K that will benefit the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation. To Register, Go To:
    In addition, bring a New Unwrapped gift to enter into a raffle to win incredible gifts from the events Sponsors.

    I am a CrossFitter, why would I run in a 5K? The answer is BECAUSE you are a CrossFitter. CrossFit is about fitness and being able to participate and handle yourself in every area of fitness. And yes, that includes running. There is almost always some type of a distance running event during the CrossFit Games. A few years ago they did a half marathon and last year during the “Triple 3’s” event they did a 3 mile run. Guess who finished last in this event last year…if you guessed Rich Froning, you were correct. I pretty much guarantee that if this event came up again he would be more than prepared for it.

    At WildFire CrossFit we offer an Endurance class each week. This week we will be going to Reach 11 to participate in the Jingle Bell Run! So get registered, bring the kids, get some toys, and be there with bells on your shoes (seriously…BELLS ON YOUR SHOES). And when you are done, if you really are a CrossFitter, you can join us at WildFire CrossFit for our FREE Saturday class!

    Snatch Skill Work

    Strength: 1 Rep Max Snatch

    WOD: Aww Yeah…It’ll Be Something Good!

  • Virtuosity

    By: Coach Chris Stasik

    Although not unique to CrossFit, an important concept is that of Virtuosity.  The dictionary defines virtuosity as “great ability or skill.”  In August, 2005, Greg Glassman wrote about virtuosity in The CrossFit Journal, adopting the gymnastics definition: “performing the common uncommonly well.”  Coach Glassman explains that in gymnastics, a routine without errors will only score 9.7/10.0.  That last three-tenths of a point is earned by demonstrating “risk, originality, and virtuosity.”  Coach Glassman writes that virtuosity is “always the mark of true mastery” and much more difficult to achieve than risk and originality.  Think of a pianist playing a complicated piece effortlessly and perfectly, or Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet doing pull ups.  That’s virtuosity.  

    At WildFire CrossFit, we spend a lot of time talking about movement basics and learning progressions to safely and efficiently improve skills.  In many gyms, athletes (and coaches) want to jump into advanced skill work as quickly as possible.  We are attracted to these more complicated movements because they are so elusive for many of us.  Coach Glassman calls this “the rush to originality and risk.”  We want to do muscle ups before we can kip or do body-weight ring dips.  We want to snatch big weight before we have a solid overhead squat.  We want to do kipping pull ups before strict.  According to Coach Glassman, the result is “a marked lack of virtuosity and delayed mastery.”  

    Delayed mastery?  I don’t like that one bit!  It is fun to practice these skills and setting goals is certainly important, but inattention to the fundamentals is the enemy of virtuosity. 

    At WildFire CrossFit, our coaching staff has nearly 20 years of combined experience teaching CrossFit. Take advantage of it!  Knees hurting when you squat?  Let’s look closely at squat mechanics and mobility.  Maybe core-strength or nagging mobility issues are problems?  Schedule a one-on-one coaching session to evaluate fundamental movement mechanics, come in early for mobility work, and spend some time getting massage therapy.  If you were able to participate in the WildFire Level 1 testing, get with a coach to analyze your results, identify strengths and weaknesses, and set goals.  

    I know squat therapy and mobility aren’t as much fun as throwing weights around, but a commitment to improve the basics now will result in less pain, reduced risk of injury, and more PR’s down the road.  Slowing down and concentrating on the fundamentals can be challenging and frustrating, but nothing worth doing is easy.

    Great coaching starts with a passion for helping people grow and to help them to see that they are capable of more than they ever thought possible.  Great coaches bring a positive, motivating, inspiring attitude to great knowledge and even greater communication skills. In CrossFit great coaches have the ability to teach, see movement for it's faults and it's excellence, and to ultimately create change in the athlete. Above and beyond all of this it is a great coach who builds trust through getting to know the athlete, their goals and who they are as a person that can truly be effective at maximizing performance in LIFE!

    WildFire CrossFit is truly proud to have a phenomenal team of Great Coaches!  This is a thank you to our WildFire CrossFit Coaches for all of the time, dedication, hard work, passion & heart they put into each event, competition, open gym, & class!  To Laura Carstens, Chris Kern, Tom Casella, Damian Walker & Matt Buse, THANK YOU for making WildFire CrossFit what it is today and being GREAT coaches!
