Blog’s up! This week, Pient Tran talks about the positive impact CrossFit has had in his professional life. “The confidence you gain in crushing your goals on a consistent basis, and performing in some of the most taxing situations, was the most unexpected “strengthening” I’ve gained since joining. A challenging meeting, a presentation in front of the board of directors, or everyone on the team comes down with the flu? I can handle it. These experiences prepare you mentally for those challenges ahead of you whether they are in the office, in the gym, or at home.” http://crossfitfullcircle.com/2016/05/17/crossfit-impact-professional-life/
Blog’s up! “We are ‘Team Burns'” by Jennifer Burns. “We take our kids along with us as much as possible to most things we do. Sometimes this is because we don’t want to pay for a sitter, but mostly it’s just life. We have children, not shackles. We want to share what we love with them. We’re ‘Team Burns.'” http://crossfitfullcircle.com/2016/01/26/we-are-team-burns-crossfit/
In this week’s blog, Whitney tackles weight issues, but from a different perspective. “My ultimate goal is to compete RX, so I am doing what it takes to get there. I am committing to another cycle of gaining weight to gain more muscle. One would think, “Just eat all the food and don’t exercise as much!” Hell yes, bring it on. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.” http://crossfitfullcircle.com/2016/01/12/im-bulking-shut-up-crossfit/
Thanks to all the athletes who came out to compete in this weekend’s weightlifting meet. I hope they had fun. It was especially great to meet those of you coming in from other gyms and other towns. THANK YOU!

Did you know Full Circle has one of the largest female strongman teams on the east coast? Believe it! Today’s blog is brought to you by StrongMa’am coach and competitor Gabby, who says, “Beyond medals and nationals qualifications, every team member has done things they didn’t think they could ever do and has pushed beyond what they believed they were capable of. It’s inspiring and something that others want to be a part of, and it is certainly something that I feel very honored to be part of.” http://crossfitfullcircle.com/2015/10/06/we-make-strongman-look-fun/
