  • Rope Climbs...might just save your life!

    When I was a kid in school, I used to love Rope Climb day. I remember getting in trouble for going all the way to the ceiling in our high school gymnasium instead of stopping at the line. Explaining to the coach that there was no way I was going to let go after going that high didn’t get me out of running laps the rest of class. The Rope Climb is an incredible skill to practice, and ultimately achieve. It will help you develop general upper body strength, including your grip and core strength. Practicing the Rope Climb as a skill and eventually being able to climb the rope goes beyond just developing a new fitness skill, it could just save your life. Now, ....

  • Enjoy the Ride - Trust the Process!

    Enjoy the Ride - Trust the Process By: David Folmer In the previous two posts I wrote about mindset, and then about honestly identifying what you deem important and acting consistent with your assessment. Yet, as we steadily march toward our goal, one thing to keep in mind is that as you get closer to it, and eventually achieve that goal you hold so dear, it will inevitably become, well, meh. The law of diminishing marginal return applies to this as when we get close, or after the goal is achieved, the original goal is no longer a sufficient driver or motivator. The stimulus and conditions are now different and can only be reengaged by inserting a new goal into the ....

  • Today is a GREAT Day - PR Buster & Girl WOD Mash-Up

    It’s been an awesome week at WildFire CrossFit. We have had some great workouts, and today, we have another great opportunity to see some new Personal Records with the Push Jerk. And so far, so good! When we are programming, we make sure to space out the 1 Rep Max days with strength building sets so when the time comes, our athletes are ready to shine. And shine they do. It’s awesome to see people’s form on point, and to see the strength that has been developed in a relatively short period of time. I had two people tell me today that they never thought they would be able to lift this much weight, and that’s music to my ears. To get a NEW ....

  • Summer Swolstice Part 2 Recap

    Friday night, we blew it up at WildFire CrossFit with part 2 of the Summer Swolstice!

  • Thursday at WildFire: It's all about INTENSITY!

    It’s all about the Intensity
    Yesterday, we worked a lot of strict exercises. The Shoulder Press and Strict Pull Ups & Handstand Push Ups require a lot more strength, even though, compared with the Push Press & Kipping, where a lot more reps can be completed. I know by the 2 nd half of the WOD, even with the run as a rest for the shoulders, that fatigue started to set in and the exercises felt a little sloppier. Compared with other workouts even with higher reps, I was taking longer rest so that I could keep the movements as strict as possible. Today, it’s all about the intensity. That’s the whole reason the “Tabata Protocol”, a ....

  • Be Honest With Me, Are You Honest With You?

    Be Honest With Me, Are You Honest With You?

    BY: David Folmer
    Last week, I wrote to you all about the benefit of trying to maintain a growth mindset, versus being hamstrung dealing with a fixed mindset. This means, I can only presume, that everyone who read that post has by now, perfected the act of setting their mindset to crush goals and achieve awesomeness, right?! Great! However, not so fast. While we may have the greatest growth mindset, we will inevitably find ourselves frustrated with the goal setting process if we fail to honestly identify whether our prospective goal is an interest, is important, or is a core goal. A goal placed in the ....

    At WildFire CrossFit, we are proud to be able to offer CrossFit Kids & Teens programs to help our future generation get in amazing shape and learn that fitness is FUN!
