East Dallas CrossFitCrossFit workouts are comprised of constantly varied functional movements (like pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running) executed at high intensity. The workouts themselves are completely scalable, which means that a new participant and a CrossFit veteran can complete the same workout with changes in load and intensity. CrossFit workouts will deliver phenomenal fitness in and of themselves or as a compliment to your sport-specific training regime. If you're interested in joining us at East Dallas CrossFit for a free 1 on 1 intro session or free Saturday workout, click here for more details.
4 Ways To Help Keep Your New Year’s Resolution
1. Be Goal Specific – You might be thinking “I want to lose weight” or “I want to get stronger”. Great! How much weight do you want to lose? How much stronger do you want to get? Making your goals quantifiable gives you a way to check your progress. Weekly weigh-ins or setting up a strength cycle outside of class (with the help of a coach) are ways to track progress by the numbers. Start thinking more along the lines of “I would like to lose 10lb. in 2 months” or “I would like to add 15lb. to my back squat and 10lb. to my clean”. This way sounds much more realistic and attainable.
2. Keep Track Of Progress – Before you get started, map everything out week by week. Write out diet plans, make grocery lists, keep charts, and track you strength gains online. By seeing how far you have come, you will stay determined and positive throughout the rest of your journey.
3. Prioritize - Make time for your goal(s). If you need to skip a couple of your evening shows to get in another workout or prepare food for the week, then so be it. If you need to block off your schedule ahead of time to get something done, then do it. Being healthy and happy should be a priority in your life.
4. Get Some Help – Having a partner is great. This is someone who will make you feel accountable if you misstep on the way to your goal. If you are not easily self motivated, find someone who is. They will rub off on you and you will try hard to not disappoint them. The more your goals match up with those of your partner, the better.
The new year is just around the corner. Try putting some of these into action as you plan your own resolutions!

We are so proud of our community as we come off of our annual competition, Barbells and Handlebars. Seeing everyone come together, competitors and volunteers both, to make this event happen is what the spirit of CrossFit is all about. We are tallying up the money raised for Movember and will let everyone know as soon as possible. Check out the scores from Saturday along with some of the pictures from Instagram that you all took. If you took any pictures of the event, please add a #bbhb2013 for them to end up on the Barbells and Handlebars website and we can all enjoy them.

Barbells & Handlebars Volunteer Meeting:
Excitement is building as Barbells & Handlebars is set to go down this Saturday. We are still in need of volunteers and judges to help the event run smoothly. This event is on a bigger scale than last year with more competitors, sponsors and event. In order for it to run smoothly, we all need to be on the same page.
We will be holding a volunteer meeting this Wednesday at 8:30pm. Please plan on attending if you know you can help out this Saturday. If you can’t come on Wednesday but still would like to help out on Saturday, please let us know and we will fill you in as best we can.
