Happy Birthday Tara

Yanked from CrossFit Lisbeth


You fight. I’m talking to you. Don’t let this world get the best of you. Don’t let it take you alive. Don’t let this world beat you until you give up. No matter what happens, you keep going. Sure, life is going to pummel you but dammit you better fight back. Kick, scratch, claw, do whatever it takes to keep breathing, keep going, to stay alive.

All you have — all you’ve ever had, really — is heart. A whole lot of freakin heart. Don’t give it up now.

Lots of people have given up on this life, on their loves, on this world. Don’t be one of them. Don’t walk this earth with a life foregone but not yet ended.

Don’t settle for less. Don’t settle for crap. Don’t settle at all.


Simply refuse to be defeated. Refuse to go down. Refuse to be one of the ones who never really made it, who never really got what they wanted, who lived a life less than they could have.

Fight until your last moment, your last thought, your last breath.

Rage on. Don’t just live. Rage.

The light only dies if you let it. Don’t let it. Fight.

Partner Workouts

Paleo Challenge Blog (Day 9)

The fear of embarassment is enough to push us to our limit. Partner workouts provide a fun and challengenging way to compete. Compare it to sports that require teamwork as the basis for success. The joy and camaraderie that comes from it is unparallelled.

Our partner workouts are no different. Repetitions are shared and so is the pride of hard work. Partner workouts get us to focus on the other partner. Shouts of encouragement and reminders of good technique are the norm. Your partner does the counting all you have to worry about is competing.

Congrats to Hana Sladick for placing first overall in the FHSAA Olympic lifting tournament last Friday. Hana has been working with CrossFit Naples the last two months focusing on improving her strength and Olympic Weightlifting technique. Hard work always pays off. Hana also signed with the Unversity of Florida to throw shot put and discus (read article here). Congrats again!
