CrossFit in Waunakee

I've been interning this semester in Madison, WI. If I was to temporarily relocate to Waunakee, I had to find a gym. The search results yeilded a bunch of run-of-the-mill type places and also CrossFit Farmland, a page that I kept visiting for a  week.

I had never before heard of CrossFit, then one of the coaches (trainers, essentially, if you're not familiar with CrossFit) met with me and led me through a free intro workout. My ass had been kicked. My personal fitness would never be the same.

At CrossFit Farmland we are prided on our strength training through functunal movements. That means that we get prescribed real squats with a barbell and olympic lifts that use the entire body. Gone are the days that I think stepping into a machine that works a single msucle group at a time will suffice.

The coaches and members at the Farmland are all VERY supportive The coaches teach you step-by-step and encourage you to do better each and every time. And they help you modify anything you might be doing improperly. If you're unfamiliar with CrossFit, we are prescribed WODs (Workouts of the day) where members come in at the scheduled WOD times that suit their own schedule. We workout together as a group, and encourage each other whenever we can spare the breath.

CrossFit Farmland is something probably better. Go here to get fitter.

Bereft of my computer

I type this with my two thumbs upon my gen 1 iPod touch. My computer of 5 years is no more. Time to get a better one. I'm distraught, and I have no idea what to do without it. More to follow.

SOPA 2.0. Oh, Hell No.

They're taking another crack at censoring our internet? I just got the email today that the Obama administration recently sent a letter to congress voicing support of SOPA.


I thought we had finished this.

Carpe Diem?

I'm pretty sure this is what it means in Latin.
But sometimes this is what it feels like am I right?
