In case you missed the SFGate yesterday, not to worry, we have you covered.  Is this fitness related? Well, if you consider wrestling with lions a form of exercise...sure.  More importantly, I think it is just a stunning example of mental fitness and courage. Having the ability to communicate and coexist with predators, make sound judgments under stress, and be at peace with the fact that you may die doing something you love is fracking inspiring, to say the least. Whether it's getting under a heavy load when you're out of breath, fighting to place cuffs on the bad guy after a foot chase, walking a slack line, paddling out into rough surf, or navigating single track after that wicked ascent, they elicit split second decisions.  Having the ability to quickly control your fears and execute a difficult physical task, is where the rubber hits the road. We aspire to train in a fashion that elevates this capacity for courage. Drop us a line on how the SCCF pride has fed your confidence...then go flex your brain and pick a new lion to wrestle.

UPCOMING EVENTS:
- Tomorrow, Oct. 16th: SCCF hosts CrossFit San Jose. Competition starts at 9:30am, with a Free workout following afterwards. Bring friends, as it is the last comp of the season, before the finals on October 30th.

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....
