    Share your CrossFit Prototype experience and fitness journey Years ago I was a collegiate (and many years beyond) soccer player.  I also ran a lot and completed a couple of marathons.  All that seemed to slow to a near stop as my life got busier and busier with a young family and a crazy job as a globe-trotting consultant.  Something had to give.  I joined a local gym and started to learn a li…Read More

  2. Habits, Streaks, and Cold Showers

    As I started to set my 2020 goals and new habits, one of mine was to take a cold shower 3x a week. I put it on the goals board at CFP and I actually have been doing it every day not just 3x a week (so I'm killing it!). With that said, a lot of people have asked me "Mike, what's up with the cold shower?". My answer is always simple, I want to do something every day that is uncomfortable. The bigger…Read More

  3. Thriving Vs. Surviving: Battling your Mindset

    Everyone has those days where you just don’t have it. You're halfway through a workout and you feel sluggish, overly fatigued, weak and you want to just quit.

  5. 5 ways joining CrossFit Prototype can make and save you money

The photo below was taken around July/August 2012 as we built out what is now CFP. As you can see, a lot has changed.

  7. Are you struggling to make it into the gym?

    If you've been finding it challenging to work out, you're not alone. Hey CFP! Coach Mike here and I want to talk a little bit about working out : ) Let's face it, working out can be hard. The biggest challenge, however, tends to be our ability to walk through the doors of the gym, not the actual physical activity. Why is that? It comes down to several factors but at the end of the day, it's how we…Read More

  8. Prototype of the Month: Martha Theirl

At the end of 2017 I had a rare type of ruptured ectop…Read More
