Sweat Shop Spartan Race

This past weekend there were five of us Sweat Shoppers competing in the Sacramento Spartan Race.  This was an 8-9 mile run with 20+ obstacles along the way.  For four of us, including myself, this was our first Spartan Race. While the run wasn’t too bad for me, I was surprised[…]

Dr. Alandi Stec, DC

If you have ever worked out at 12 pm class, you have probably gotten to know Alandi. People know her for her contagious laughter and radiating positivity, as well as being a pretty darn good CrossFitter! What many people do not know is that in addition to these things, she is also a[…]

More Than A Place To Workout

Spartan Race – Sat. November 11th – Sacramento, CA

A couple of years ago there was a big group of Sweat Shoppers that did a Tough Mudder and it was a really fun time.  From everything I’ve heard, the Spartan Race is even better. Less gimmicky like electrocution wires, and more about just plain old obstacles and fitness.  I[…]

Hero WODs

Great turn out for Memorial Day “Murph” yesterday! While I wasn’t able to do “Murph” yesterday, I have done it several times, and every time it is incredibly humbling. I came across an old article from the CrossFit Journal on “Murph” and the creation of Hero WODs. Check out how[…]

Sweat Shop BBQ

  Big thanks to everyone that came out this weekend to the BBQ at Heather Farm.  Volleyball, badminton and spikeball, where all played in moderation, yet several of us where surprisingly sore the next day.  Perhaps less clean & jerks and more sport specific training in our programming?  We’ll see! […]
