  • "Life will always serve sh*t." Paralympian Lacey Henderson Shares Her Story.

    Lacey Henderson was just 9 years old when she had her right leg amputated above the knee to save her life from a rare cancer. While Lacey could have used this as an excuse to limit herself when it came to physical goals, that was simply never her mindset. Lacey was raised to believe that if you want something, truly deeply desire something, you will find a way to make it happen.

    That is how Lacey Henderson, Paralympian was born.

  • Maddy Espinoza: Not Your Average Teenager

    When Maddy would lift in front of the wrestling team it would regularly be more than any other guy on the team could lift.  She felt that there may have been some intense jealousy over what she was doing not only in school right in front of these boys, but also at CrossFit ® as a competitive athlete.

    “I think they bullied me as a way to kind of get to me and stop me from doing what I love. But I’m still here and I’m doing even better than last year.”

  • Nicole Roggow ‘Capurso’ - Her story of choices, change and priorities

    "I used to be the exerciser who monitored everything that went into my mouth, how much I slept, and how much I trained. Now, my life includes a husband, a house, two businesses, two dogs- all things that are more important than my training schedule. Because of that I can influence and help a lot more people."

  • Lauren "luluskie" Herrera: Athlete, Wife, Nurse - Using Fitness to Cope
    “When I interviewed for my current position the central question they asked me was how I coped- ‘you’re going to see some really sad things here. How are you going to cope with that?’ My response to that was that I loved exercising. When I’m exercising I’m not thinking about anything else other than the task I have to accomplish. That’s how I cope.” ~Lauren Herrera

  • An Intimate Interview with Masters Games Athlete Amy "Pistol" Mandelbaum

    The barbell was heavy. Heavy. Amy emphasized the word. It was a way to get out aggression, a way out of her own head. She had just moved from New York City- this bright, in your face, loud, yet majestic place to what any native pavement pounding city dweller would call, “the country”.

    “I needed a place to put all of that and as soon as I touched that barbell I fell in love with it.”
