The Beauty of Competition

Posted by Kenny Kane

So many brilliant moments Saturday: Shirley's elegant ferocity and Muscle up, GC's "1000 Mile Stare", Stanwyck going "Old Man Stong," Cerussi being a "Clean Machine," Ry-Ry tossing the barbell like a balloon... In the video below you'll see determination, will, focus, love, support, camaraderie, and the joy of a game day break through. Thank you Maggie for making inspiration so beautiful....

CFLA Athlete Profile - Ryan Gorman

Posted by Danette Rivera

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD... what was it, and how did it feel? I can’t remember my first WOD, but I was doing it alongside my middle-aged co-workers who were kicking my ass. I was interning at Reebok going into my senior year and should have been in the best shape of my life—CrossFit was very humbling to say the least! When I started back up again in fall 2012, my first workout was Grace. I did it with 55 lbs and don’t even think I knew what the Rx’d weight was (or what Rx’d even meant)... Continue reading here...

What’s it to you?

Posted by michael stanwyck

I was talking with someone this week about freedom, as a value. Like, I think that freedom in its many forms, is the most valuable thing that we have. The more I think about it, the more I see that freedom means a lot of different things to a lot of people. I'd bet that there are so many versions of "freedom" out there that there are some versions that step on the "freedom" of other versions.

Lessons from the Earthquake, Sweet and Practical

Posted by Danette Rivera

If you are from California, or have spent enough time here, you’ve been through a few earthquakes even before Monday’s nice shaker. After a significant quake, we all start to reminisce -- don’t we? -- about the other ones that have left an impression. I know for most it’s the Northridge quake, but for me, the most significant one was the Landers earthquake in 1992, a 7.3 out of the Mojave Desert. At the time I lived alone in Korea Town on the third floor of an apartment built in the 1930’s... Continue reading here...

An Egg, Once Again.

Posted by Andy Petranek

How many times over the course of your life have you spent time, effort and energy getting good at something, forming a relationship, becoming well versed, achieving a sense of mastery, becoming really excellent at your job, and then, for some reason or another, had to move on, change gears, or start over from scratch? Remember back when you were just a kid - and it happened for the first time, you ‘broke up’ with your best friend or girlfriend... you had no experience and you just had to figure it out as you went along, while dealing with the emotional upset it created inside...

501 Ricky Street - The Perfect Intersection

Posted by Kenny Kane

To me, a perfect moment in life is when ability and challenge intersect. In many ways, this is why we train the way we do at CFLA - to honor competition. To mindfully develop our abilities, then test them against specific challenges under the fertile context of competition.... Continue reading here...

In Their Own Words...
My daughter has been going to CFLAKids for nearly two months and she loves it. I love it for her. She is, in general, very athletic and coming here fosters her desire to be competitive, which is important to me. Girls should be able to let this side thrive, if they want it.. The classes make her stronger and faster and more able to enjoy the other sports she's involved in. - Danette R.
