Rest Days

Have you ever wondered why your body feels really tired during the later part of the week? Are you the type of person that tells themselves “No Days Off?” Are you working out 7 days a week? Well, that might not be the right thing to do for your body.

One of the most typical questions we get from first time athletes is, “How often should I train?” If you are considering CrossFit as your strength and conditioning program then you also may be wondering, “How often should I CrossFit?” CrossFit.com prescribes 3 days “on” followed by 1 day “off.” But is this the right CrossFit frequency for everyone? Absolutely not. It varies with each athlete: age, diet, the amount of time th...

Egos... We hate them, so leave them at the door!!!!

All WOD’s are written for specific purposes. The weights and movements are meant to get a certain response from your body. Our purpose here at Big Bang CrossFit is to see you continuously make gains, with good technique. We also want to make sure you stay healthy so you CAN continue to workout and see progress.

Your ego has the potential to make your experience in CrossFit not as enjoyable as expected. Some people want the fastest time regardless of the intention of the WOD, so you scale the weight and your ego now stands in between you and increased strength which doesn’t benefit you much either. Checking that RX box is also worthless if you are finishing the ...

The Crossfit Games Open 2017 is over… Now what?

Before we touch on this blog, all of the Coaches would like to send a message to all of the athletes who have competed in our 3rd Annual Crossfit Games Open Friday Night Lights Competition. We would like to congratulate all of the members who participated this year. It was impressive watching everyone test his or her limits. You all pushed harder than you thought possible. We all have weaknesses and its great to see everyone want to tackle them and improve their strengths. We have all entered the “dark place” during each of the workouts, but it was the community of the Big Bang Family and camaraderie that helped us get out of it. We all had “Proud Coach” mo...

On March 08 every year, we celebrate women. Although once a year is not enough, we would like to pay homage to our CrossFit women at Big Bang and the CrossFit women all over the world. CrossFit women are changing the world. CrossFit women are redefining beauty and breaking stereotypes. CrossFit women search to attain the strongest and healthiest version of themselves possible. These women are leaders.

At Big Bang, we have our CrossFit mommies with newborns who still make it to the gym once they have recovered. You also see them working out all throughout pregnancy. You see the women competing and often beating men’s times. You see the young women from high school training hard to be their best at a chosen sport or just to feel stro...

Box Etiquette

Happy New Year from us to you at Big Bang Crossfit! Whether you’re a seasoned member or a new member, here's a little article on box etiquette.

Certain fields require you to behave in a respectable manner. Whether you are new to BBCF, or a seasoned athlete, note these rules to our box.

1.Never say any form of “I can’t”Here, at Big Bang we strive to reach our goals. Whatever that may be (getting stronger, faster, getting better at gymnastics), we NEVER use these words… “I can’t." Logic dictates that if you have limitations, then you cannot be, do, or have something. But this flaw can come when we use this phrase as an excuse not to try something that may be possible. ...
