Why We Make Bad Decisions

We live in the free market. That means an abundance of choice. It also means we often choose the wrong thing: we choose cookies over broccoli, parties over sleep, cute shoes over snow boots. Especially on Friday nights, we choose “comfort foods” and Netflix. We KNOW...

Customized Nutrition Coaching Program – Rachel Cassidy

I had such a wonderful experience working with Nikole and the Nutrition Program through CrossFit Recursive, and owe my current state to it! I sought out the Nutrition Program at Recursive because I had fallen off the horse - the healthy-eating, wellness horse, that...

28 Day Nutrition Challenge – Todd Kinsman

The 28 Day challenge was a much needed reset when I felt like my relationship with food was becoming unhealthy, not atypical for the holiday season. I know how to be healthy and what that looks like; however, it’s hard to do when life gets busy and there’s no one but...

PVC Warm Up

Start with the basics. Become virtuous. Learn to move well with a 6 oz. PVC pipe before you throw hundreds of pounds overhead. Every day you come to the gym, we will do our PVC Warm Up Drills to help get you warmed up and moving. Pass Throughs Reverse Pass Throughs...

Emmet Otter Day

Growing up, we always celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve with my mom's family. All 3 of my mom's brother's and their families would gather at my grandmas's house on Christmas Eve. My grandma's house was small - about 900 square feet, but we all packed into the...

Be Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

People often ask me how love I have been CrossFitting. I have been telling them 5-6 years, but I recently went back and figured it out. I still have my original teeny tiny workout notebooks where I kept track of my WODs with pen and paper. My first workout was at a...

You Are Loved.

Over my years of coaching athletes from all different backgrounds and at different gyms I've noticed a disappointing trend regarding the support those athletes experience from their loved ones. You've probably seen it (and maybe even experienced it) before too. You're...

How Often Should You Workout?

I often get asked how much training, CrossFit training in particular, that an individual should be doing. I, myself, have struggled with over- and under- training over the years. The answer, unfortunately, isn’t black and white. There isn’t a magic formula to...

Why we don’t have “RX” at Recursive

If you started CrossFit at our gym, you probably don't even realize that we don't mark "RX" next to your names after a workout. If you have come to us from another gym, you may (or may not) notice the lack of use of the "RX" on our whiteboard. When we first opened the...

How We Program at Recursive

I want to make very clear that CrossFit is designed to be constantly varied, but should never be random. We don’t scour the internet and pick and choose workouts from other places. We do look at them to get ideas and see what others are doing, but we rarely scalp...

A Simple Thank You…

Thank you. Thank you for coming. For trying. For dedicating your time. Thank you for walking through the door, even when you're tired, busy and stressed. Thank you for being part of our community. The gym wouldn't be what it is without you. You are what makes...

Migraines? Nutrition may be a factor…

I have had migraines and heartburn all week long. It got me to take a step back and look at my nutrition and other habits. I have some known triggers - and it took me years of trial and error and tracking and journaling to figure some of them out. Lack of sleep and...
