SteadFast Featured Athlete: Jason Lassiter


I first heard about CrossFit in the spring of 2013 from a girl I started dating then (some of you know the legendary Alexis Mundy).  She had been a SteadFast member for about a year, was at the gym every day, and talked about it non-stop.  I was pretty convinced it was a cult.  The [...]

12 Days … Mindset and Support


The clock counts down, and the coach yells GO! Everything feels great. I have stretched, sort of. Everyone is festively dressed. People that have already completed the workout are having a drink and socializing. It is one of my favorite workouts of the year….12 Days of Christmas!! Performed just like the song with the movements [...]

At Your Own Pace


When I started working out and playing sports I knew I was not the fastest nor the strongest. Granted I was 6. When my mom married my stepdad I knew it would not be easy sharing space with him or my new brothers. I was 10. When I got my first job I knew I [...]

The Skylight


I was laying on the floor the other day exhausted after a brutal WOD, it involved the lovely Assault Bike and just looked up at the skylight in the gym while I recovered. It is interesting to me the reflecting that I can do all because I am searching for an excuse just to lay [...]

The Essentials


I have always been a person that can sleep anywhere and truly loved sleeping. I have slept in the middle of holiday parties with tons of noise going on, I have been known to nap in the bath tub and at random times throughout the day, and get me in the passenger's seat of a [...]

SteadFast Featured Athlete: Flanagan Dressel


When Brian came up to me during class with a rather large grin on his face and fist bump, I knew something was coming.  He said, “Guess what? You’re going to be the next featured athlete.”  I thought why me, he should pick an elite athlete.  He told me I had come a long way [...]

February 2017



The Caribbean sea surrounds me. The sun beats down and I can hear the clink of glasses from a nearby waterside restaurant. My boyfriend, who easily completed the required task for this stage of scuba training, explores the underwater paradise around us without hesitation. Tropical fish are probably swimming below my feet, but I can’t [...]

SteadFast Featured Athlete – Janet Deloach


Warning! I just finished watching yet another Christmas Hallmark Channel movie. So this could get a little sappy. They get to me every time!   I first walked through the bay doors of CrossFit SteadFast in February of this year at the age of 55. And although it took me quite a while to get [...]

Foodie Friday: Tostones…Fails and Wins


Why am I calling this blog “Fails and Wins”?   Simply put:  in the kitchen you don’t always get stuff right, and there is no need to beat yourself up about it.  Hopefully, any disaster can be salvaged.  If it tastes good but the presentation didn’t end up quite as you hoped, then you live [...]
