We’re back! It’s been a little while and Coach Greg is here to talk about how you handle yourself in training. Are you always completing (or leaderboarding)? Are you able to do the movements in a safe way or do you just give it everything you have got while forgetting all the important stuff. Greg also touches on the hot topic in our gym of overtra…
 
On today’s episode Greg sits down with coach Paige to discuss the issues involved with specialising in sport at a young age. They discuss how being committed to one sport at a young age can lead to physical and mental disorders that become a much larger problem as these young people grow into adults and how this also relates to adults using their j…
 
Jenna and Greg shoot the breeze about her first start into exercise 2 years ago. Jenna's first impression when she walked in to the gym was being in awe and intimidated by the things people were doing. Now she is a role model of consistency, physical and mental strength and health for others in and out of the gym. Heaps of insights for her journey …
 
In today’s episode Greg talks about why the intention of the exercise prescription for CrossFit is done to make sure that you don’t have to learn all of the complicated science behind getting fitter and healthier. He discusses the basics of mechanics, consistency and THEN adding intensity to avoid injury. Greg goes into a talk about how the lack of…
 
On today’s episode Greg grabbed Debbie while her kids were doing CrossFit Kids to chat. They discuss if you actually need to be fit to start CrossFit, how being a good influence to your group of people you spend time with can help them grow without bombarding them with all of the annoying stuff that only you and your tribe find fun.

In today’s episode, Greg talks about the stories that make up our lives and how all of our negative scenes from the movie that is our life can affect our ability to move forward. Can the cycle of bad habits learned throughout life be changed? Can the chains be broken? Today Greg takes a look at how you can write new scenes for your future and set y…

In today’s episode, Greg is flying solo and delivering some advice on how to get results consistently in the gym. He talks a lot about the term progressive overload and how it is more than just a system used for people looking to lift heavier. Today Greg discusses how the body uses this method to create specific adaptations to imposed demands on th…
 
Our brain is very complex. It is capable of convincing us to do great things that push us to new heights that we never imagined possible or make us overcomplicate things that can put us in a state of paralysis. Whether it is jumping on a box or learning how to do a snatch, the mind can get in the way and hold us back from some things that seem so s…
 
Nutrition Challenges are big business in the fitness industry and are something we have deliberately shied away from. Not because we don't want to make money. We're a business - We do! But because they tend not to serve the long term interests of the participants well. In most challenges participants are given a restricted calorie diet to follow an…
 
When it comes to health, fitness and life, most people are already pretty knowledgeable. They read heaps of things, they listen and they watch. They keep accumulating knowledge. But they still fall short of being who they want to be despite all of this knowledge. Why is that?In most cases it can be pinned down to lack of consistent application of t…
 
The F Word. It's a touchy subject, but lets not beat around the bush. For an ever increasing percentage of the population it is a huge issue and it's not about aesthetics. Excess body fat is linked to a raft of chronic diseases, not to mention the daily pain, discomfort and struggle experienced by those classed as obese or morbidly obese. For every…
 
It happens to many of us at some point during our CrossFit career - we decide to enter a local level competition. Perhaps we fancy ourselves as being "alright at this stuff", or perhaps we just want to have a bit of fun with some friends. So how should we prepare for these competitions? The stakes are high (our ego/pride) and the all important t-sh…
 
It's cold, its dark and the last thing you feel like doing is going to the gym. You're just being lazy right? Or you're just too busy. Perhaps all those other important things in your life just seem well... more important. More important in winter than they were in summer anyway.But deep down, you know that lack of consistency is what is holding yo…
 
When CrossFit first started there was no gear being marketed as being specifically for CrossFit. Given its diverse nature, the gear utilised was simply that suited to the individual specialities or indeed even home made. Fast forward to today and the supply and manufacture of CrossFit training gear is big business. Shoe brands have got on board the…
 
How do you get fitter, faster, stronger, better when your cup is already overflowing with mental noise, anxiety, pressure and stress? You have 2 choices - you can let it overflow or you can get a bigger cup.In this episode we discuss the commonality of humans and how negative thoughts and emotions can hamper progress and performance. For the compet…
 
Do you really understand what the whiteboard is all about inside your CrossFit box? Is it there simply to torture you and make you feel inadequate? Or is there more to it? In this episode Greg and Belinda discuss the whiteboard and the bigger picture of keeping and recording a score. We then flip the discussion completely on its head and caution yo…
 
Nothing is more shrouded in mystery and misinformation than nutrition. It is the foundation upon which all athletic performance is built, but has been portrayed as an enormously complicated phenomenon - beyond the depths of comprehension of ordinary human beings. Although our species has managed to feed itself and survive for hundreds of thousands …
 
How do you lead a proactive life versus a reactive life? How do you stop operating on everyone else's agenda? How do you keep moving forward with health, with fitness, with career, with life and stop getting distracted?"Getting Sh*t Done" or "GSD" is practical terminology for an age old topic of turning dreams, hopes and ideas into reality. It can …
 
It's easy at this time of year with all of the focus on the CrossFit Open and the Games to lose sight of the goal - to think that the primary purpose of CrossFit is only to Forge Elite Fitness - to produce incredible specimens of humans capable of performing superhuman feats. But it's never been about that. All of that is just fluff and a byproduct…
 
You do CrossFit. With its fierce reputation you know you've got this exercise thing nailed. You're doing enough to stave off sickness and disease and to maintain a healthy weight. Or are you?In this episode Greg and Belinda discuss how CrossFit contributes towards your activity levels and how in fact it may (shock, horror!) not be enough.CrossFit d…
 
The CrossFit Open is upon us once again and the event is something we really advocate being part of. While ultimately it is about weeding out the fittest on earth, for the rest of us it’s just a bit of fun. It’s a chance to test our fitness in the company of friends and it gives us a little goal each year to help us play the long game of sustained …
 
We get it. This stuff can be addictive. And when we start to train because FOMO has kicked in rather than because it’s what’s best for our goals and our body then we are indeed putting ourselves at risk of overtraining. For sure an extra WOD for fun here and there isn’t going to do any harm, but repeatedly flogging yourself in the gym for an extend…
 
People have a fascination with meal prep and its associated visions of plastic containers, steamed chicken breasts and broccoli. Whilst Greg somewhat conforms to the plastic container version, Belinda's version is quite different. And here's the thing - no one way is better or worse than the other. It's what works for you as an individual. Meal pre…
 
For the uninitiated, Rx'ing a CrossFit workout means completing it "As Prescribed". It means you perform the WOD (workout of the day) exactly as it's written - weight, reps, movement standard etc. To be able to Rx a workout becomes an early goal for many as they embark on their CrossFit journey. However, for the novice CrossFitter (and even some ex…
 
In this episode we recap on the year that was 2017. It was a huge year for Flourish with many events and speciality workshops conducted throughout the year. The Open, Bring A Friend Week, JME Lifting comps, Wod N Wine, Night of the Living Deadlifts and the FFF Challenge - all squeezed in amongst the regular daily training. In our usual style we div…
 
There is nothing like this time of year for a bit of reflection, a bit of soul-searching and perhaps even a bit of navel-gazing. While we are not advocates of New Years Resolutions, this is a great time of year to pause and reflect on the year past and look ahead to the coming year. If we are going to “get better every day”, then we need to know wh…
 
It’s cool to be made of steel…. until you work out that in fact you are “The Tin Man” (or Woman). In this episode we talk mobility and its importance to the grand plan of long term fitness. Being fit is not just about being the strongest or the fastest. It’s a game of longevity and life quality. The stuff you do (and don’t do) now will impact your …
 
We chat about the upcoming 2018 CrossFit Open and how we use that as an annual goal to test our fitness and benchmark ourselves against our peers around the world. Am I better, worse or about the same as previous years? We also touch on a touchy subject - excuses and putting yourself at the bottom of the pile of your life's priorities. We then wrap…
 
It is the time of year for abundance. The supermarkets know full well that you are feeling festive, generous, joyous. They also know this means you will eat pretty well anything they put in front of you. Although their advertising indicates they care about you and your family at Christmas, in reality the only thing they care about are their profits…
 
The 3rd annual FFF Challenge was held on Saturday November 18. Whilst we were blessed with cooler temperatures compared to 2017, the forecast of 0-5mm of rain proved to be wildly inaccurate with a deluge setting in for much of the day. Thankfully WOD 1, which was the only outdoor event managed to scrape through without anyone getting a wet bum! In …
 
In addition to the usual weekly wrap up of programming (and a sinister warning about the upcoming evil sister to the burpee) we discuss the concept of overreaching versus overtraining. How do we train intelligently to play the long game of improved fitness instead of pandering to our ego that just wants to be the best at everything right now? Cross…
 
This week we welcome Jo Rogers to the show. Jo is well known in the Flourish community as a Trainer, crossfitter and competitor. However, CrossFit is a more recent addition to her repertoire. Prior to her crossing over to the dark side, Jo was and still is very well known in the bodybuilding world. During a competitive career spanning a decade she …
 
It's been a high skill week of bar muscle ups, handstand walking, l-sit rope climbs, overhead squats and more so we chew Greg's ear about why he puts this hard stuff in. We also dive into a deeper discussion about breathing mechanics including holding the breath versus not holding the breath during lifts and bracing sequence. We then discuss the la…
 
This week we welcome our first guest to the show! Paige is one of our members and we chat with her about her CrossFit journey thus far which began as a worn-out and stressed out business owner and mum 12 months ago, to her success as part of the Qld Team at the Masters League "State of Origin" held at the Gold Coast last weekend. Paige's journey is…
