We are hosting an Easy Paleo seminar on Saturday February 22nd from 2-4 pm at the home of one of our morning members, Janet Carmichael
This cold weather is perfect for soup! Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of our favorites so I found this paleo version of it and had to try. It was perfect and along with a salad made a great dinner. I increased the chicken to 3 cups to help make it substantial. Do not leave out the avocado and a little crisp bacon on top wouldn’t hurt either!
College is a crazy time. You are stressed out of your mind at different points, but you are also happy and more excited about life than you’ve ever been. The friends you are making will more than likely be lifelong friends. For the most part you are short on time, sleep and money. You are on your own. Your beliefs are being shaped. You are figuring out who you are. Kinda like a trial run for real life. So, I figure that if you can maintain a healthy lifestyle for the majority of your college years then you have more going for you than 99% of those you are going to school with! (And a huge step forward on life).
Time is running out to register for the third annual Talon Easter Throwdown! If you would like to be a part of the throwdown that started it all, click HERE to register or volunteer.
“Two weeks ago, I had an epiphany,” she says, “there is so much I can’t do, but I came up with a list of things I can do, like deadlifts and power cleans, and actually wrote them down for me to focus on. I’m not going to worry about what my knees prevent me from doing anymore!”
July 12th and 13th, CrossFit Talon will host a CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer Course.
I love to judge Crossfit competitions, and especially Talon’s Easter Throwdown. It’s fun and exciting to see so many athletes in our box, giving their all
The spirit of the CrossFit Games Open is alive and well at CrossFit Talon. Congratulations to everyone who competed this year, and we invite everyone to participate next year. You never know what a competition like this will push you to accomplish – you might even win one of our coveted awards!
These victories are worth celebrating, even if we won’t be crowned the fittest on Earth, because each one carries us closer to being the fittest personally possible.
