Floating Now Available in Walnut Creek

Last Friday I finally got to experience something I have wanted to try for a couple of years now.  Floating is something that has been around since the 70’s, but in the past few years is regaining popularity due in part to some big name celebrities, such as Steph Curry, and other members of the […]

Fear Not

“So when you accept yourself and you accept fear is a fact, it’s something that happens, it’s something that you will experience, but it’s not a force to hold you back. It doesn’t have any special power other than that which you give it”. -Les Brown (Getting Past Fears)

Walk this Way….Actually, Lets Just Drive

As some of you have known I was gone in Europe for almost a month, but I am now back! You can ask me about the trip any time you see me and I will do my best to give you the abbreviated version, but all in all it was an amazing experience. I saw […]

Fittest On Earth

If you haven’t yet seen Fittest On Earth, it’s an awesome documentary featuring games athletes and what they go though during the grueling 4 days at the CrossFit Games. Our very own Jacqueline is competing next week! I can’t believe it’s here already! If you don’t have the pleasure of heading to the Alliant Energy Center in […]

Bringing Healthy Back

If you move perfectly and are free of pain, this post is not for you.  For everyone else these exercises could help alleviate pain and/or limited range of motion.  While I don’t have pain in my low back, I definitely have tightness in my upper back and lower traps.  I’ve recently found that some of […]

Leg Drive

Ever since I prepped for my first olympic weightlifting meet last November, I’ve fine- tuned a lot missing parts in my lifts and have got more comfortable knowing how certain parts of the lift should feel. I’ve made big improvements in my numbers over the last year, thanks in big part to the help from of our […]

Friday Night Lights

Over the past few weeks, sweat shoppers have been gathering at Larkey Park to get some “Friday Night Lights: Basketball Edition” in. Shout out to Taneya and Al who have been getting a solid squad together over the past few weeks! Each time I’ve gone out there, they’ve managed to get a squad of 10-15 people! […]

Logging Workouts

I used to be diligent about logging my workouts. However, as of late, I can’t seem to get back into the habit of logging workouts on Beyond The Whiteboard. Even now as I’m writing this, I’m realizing I didn’t log today’s workout! I made it my monthly goal to log EVERY workout on Beyond The […]

Back Squat vs. Front Squat

Over the years I’ve gotten these two questions quite a few times.  “what’s the difference between back squats and front squats?”…. and, “which is better?”  Someone recently asked me this question again, so when I saw a post from Breaking Muscle, I decided to post it here on our blog.  My response to these questions […]
