The Happiest of Birthdays from James Sjostrom

Once in a while someone walks into our lives and our lives are changed forever… This is a pretty bold statement. As a Coach, I like to believe I am able to learn more than I teach. Every student that I get honored with instructing is a teacher as well. I believe this on every size, reaction, vibration, interaction, or whatever. Clearly, I am no spiritual Guru. I guess, what I am trying to say is that you all have helped me far more than I will probably help you. You have given me purpose in this world. On...

Kettlebell Class sans video

This is a double kettlebell class.  The workout was 2 double swings, 1 clean, 2 (R L) single hand press,  2 front squats.  Repeat with 3, then repeat with 5.  I took a short 30 second video of this kettlebell class and it looked really great; excellent panorama sweep, dazzling resolution, everyone was captured doing the full exercise.  I downloaded it from my phone into my computer with the intention of posting it as part of this blog.  Hellooooo.  Never to be seen again.  I cannot find it in my...

Last night, Monday the 17th, was the CrossfitNRG Christmas Party.  It was a potluck and white elephant gift affair.   Good people, good food, good time.  I am only sorry that I did not have the foresight to wield a camera.  The buffet was loaded with tasty, tasty food.  I especially enjoyed the Korean Barbeque Pork that was prepared and brought by Vanessa; those chopsticks didn’t slow me down one bit.  Another favorite was the ceviche; Chris was enthralled with it.  He couldn’t pronounce it but...

The first Primal Move Foundations was held in Salt Lake City on Sunday, October 21 at CrossfitNRG.  This was the entry training session for Primal Move Certification.  There were six of us personal trainer types taking the seminar with Andrea Chang of Seattle and Zar Horton of Albuquerque.  This followed the day after they led the first HKC certification in Salt Lake City. We should all be able to move our own bodies; however, lack of movement from pain, injury or discomfort have made it difficult to enjoy...
