PRIMAL "Celebrating Fire Cooking, Meat & the Art of Butchering"

The name of the event that I attended up in Napa Valley this weekend, conjured up images of just that...essential...fundamental.

And to think that we have to now create a celebration for something that is so embedded in our DNA is remarkable and embarrassing to some degree. After thousands of years living primally, we have created a world of conveniences that have desensitized and devalued us to that which really matters. The good news is there is this huge shift in paradigm where everything primal is attractive and being devoured at a rapid pace.  A good friend of mine used to say, "get in touch with your inner chimp."  He was right.  As CrossFitters, we are doing this every time we step into the gym and sort through fundamental movements, share food, share thoughts, stress inoculate, stress relieve, lift heavy things, sprint, jump, play and thrive.  Whether its human movement, human diet, or human spirit, primal is where we are moving and it's a good sign.  Paleo Nutrition, CrossFit, Primal Blueprint, S.P.E.A.R., Whole9, MovNat, Mobility, essential, fundamental....

After throwing down this morning's workout, came the 2nd workout of the day....tackling Groupon requests!!! We quickly understood how this company is, according to Forbes mag, "the fastest growing company ever" Will SCCF, become the fastest growing box on the peninsula, ever??? That remains to be seen, but the response has been amazing.  Thank you to all  for showing interest in our program! Given the volume, here are some important things to note:

Women's Individual Finals at 2010 CrossFit Games

Whether its scaling walls at the Twenty Ten CrossFit Games, finishing your first 5k, or racing your grandchild to the other end of the playground, you are all capable of athleticism you may have thought impossible not long ago.  After visiting the Home Depot Center and watching the finals of the CrossFit Games, I am amazed. The mental fortitude, physical dexterity, and infallible wills of the individual, team and master's competitors, turned the ordinary into extraordinary.  I know many of you were watching the live stream of competition and I hope it inspired you like it did me, to train harder and to remove the word cannot from your vocabulary. Being drawn to our type of training, already makes you part of a small group of movers who step outside to box to earn results with blood, sweat, and tears.  No other training program is creating stunning levels of work capacity in this many people, anywhere in the world. I saw it with my own two eyes this weekend, and cannot wait to see more of it with all of YOU. See you down at the box...

REMINDER: SCCF Paleo Challenge ends next week. Keep up the hard work!!!
