Ashburn Crossfit

Ashburn CrossFit is for everyone, not just elite athletes. We are a complete fitness program that can be adapted for all fitness levels and ages.

If you’ve been thinking of giving CrossFit a try and find the super-fit, super-lean images off-putting rather than inspirational, set the images aside and come see the reality. It’s a very supportive community of real people, in a range of shapes, sizes and ages, all aiming to get stronger, faster, fitter and more powerful. CrossFit is typically done in classes with the supervision of a trainer, but we also offer one-on-one personal training. If you are curious about CrossFit, please contact us to set up a free introductory session.
Many people think CrossFit is "too hardcore" for them. This could not be further from the truth. Our program allows you to workout at your own pace, and our classes are full of average people looking to improve their health and wellness. Our program uses constant variation, meaning your workout each day will be different than the day before. This keeps the body guessing, and allows us to make sure we are hitting every area of the body. Since we preach functional movement, we are constantly teaching the best, most natural, safest positions to power through a movement. This ensures that our high intensity workout remains safe and has the lowest risk of injury possible.

What to Know About Pumpkin Spice Lattes, From a Nutritionist Who Loves Them — Health.com

The PSL 🎃 is back next week!

Just remember - everything in moderation!

“A tall Starbucks PSL made with whole milk and whipped cream clocks in at 330 calories, 15 grams of fat, 40 grams of carb with 39 from sugar, and 11 grams of protein. To put that in perspective, a Starbucks Cheese Danish is lower in everything, including sugar, with 28 fewer grams than the PSL. So when you order a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, enjoy every sip but just think of it as a dessert rather than a coffee”

Off the Carbs, Off the Couch

“Nutrition is just as—if not more—important than movement.”

Perhaps this is the biggest misconception in all of fitness. A lot of individuals like to begin their fitness journey, losing that 30 lbs, body fat, adding muscle, etc...by beginning with a lot of running, cardio, working out. This is useful, this is beneficial, and it certainly can make an impact. However, the greatest opportunity to win in fitness relative to weight loss, lowering blood pressure, and getting rid of type 2 diabetes, starts with yourself in the kitchen.

Eat enough carbohydrates to support exercise not body fat.

journal.crossfit.com Greg Glassman’s prescription is the key to health.

“Jackie”:
1000m Row
50 Thrusters (empty bar)
30 Pull Ups

Scaling options:
Reps - 30 Thrusters
Movements -Jumping Pull-ups

[08/13/18]   Lost 172 lb. since starting CrossFit exactly two years ago at 422 lb. Total weight loss is 235 lb. with my heaviest being 485 lb. Currently weigh 250 lb.
.
Good nutrition and CrossFit are key elements of this change. But the CrossFit community and coaching is the foundation of what made all of this possible. I’m tremendously blessed of the support I’ve surrounded myself with. This is not easy, but I feel massively better than I have in decades, and continuously healing from morbid obesity.

After 27 years my Mother finally got me to make my bed. A lesson from Coach Brandon.

Obese to Beast

John David Glaude runs the YouTube channel “Obese to Beast” to help people move from sickness to fitness. Glaude, who once weighed 360 lb., reclaimed his health with nutrition and CrossFit.

journal.crossfit.com John David Glaude decides he wants to live past 40.

[07/30/18]   Before CrossFit, Rainier Ward was a statistic, weighing nearly 600 lb. and suffering from Type 2 diabetes before he turned 30.
-
After changing his diet and starting CrossFit, Ward lost 145 lb., reversed his diabetes and normalized his blood pressure.
-
Rates of Type 2 diabetes in Canadian indigenous communities have reached epidemic levels. In some indigenous communities, as much as 26 percent of the population had the disease in 2013. For reference, Diabetes Canada reported that 9.3 percent of the general Canadian population had Type 2 diabetes in 2015, though that number is expected to increase to 12.1 percent by 2025.

[07/23/18]   “Lost 26 Kg’s and 13 cm around my waist in the past 6 months!!! Thanks to everyone at CrossFit Ivory ... Dedication and commitment to my goal of living a healthier life!!! Looking forward to the future".

[07/19/18]   Gus has made BIG changes since he started with us Celebration Crossfit in January! He has many goals, one being to run a mile without stopping and another of tackling 3 pull-ups using a black band. He lost 30 lbs. in his first 3 months with us and look at where he is today!

You vs You

I think a lot of individuals are in your place. "I've thought about going to the gym and changing my lifestyle, but I'm afraid to take that leap". If you've ever had these thoughts: "I'm not healthy enough", "I need to change my life", "I have no idea where to start". Start here.

Squatting Her Way out of Surgery

Elaine dealt with so much pain in her hip that eventually she concluded she needed invasive surgery.

Prior to surgery, she joined CrossFit Thrive out of Westfield Indiana. Little did she know...this one decision would change her whole life.

Fast forward six months and Elaine is now pain free and no longer needs surgery. She credits newfound strength, mobility, and flexibility for her now pain free life.

One decision could result in becoming pain free, getting off medications you've taken for years...ultimately improving your life in ways you couldn't imagine.

Diet Is the Difference

SlimFast, Jenny Craig, and Weight Watchers didn't work...Every nutrition coach she worked with focused solely on one metric, weight. Enter CrossFit Level 3 Coach Mike Brady.

Tammy Florczak had been doing CrossFit for five years. But at just 5 foot 3, she still weighed 390 lb. By August 2017, she had Type 2 diabetes. It was a wake-up call.

She decided to make a change, and asked Mike to help her clean up her diet. Five months later, Florczak has dropped 45 lb. and seen significant improvements in her average blood-glucose levels, as indicated by an A1C test (the test measures average blood-glucose levels over a period of approximately three months).

Island Wars: The Fight Against Disease in the Philippines

Pip Conde began CrossFit Infinitas in 2013 as a place to develop competitive CrossFit athletes.

This all changed when Leo San Juan walked through the doors in 2016. San Juan weighed 287 lb. at 5 foot 7. A Type 2 diabetic, he had been taking insulin for the last 10 years. But after just a few months of CrossFit—and eating a Paleo diet on Conde’s advice—San Juan gave his coach some good news.

For the first time in ten years, San Juan's doctor took him off insulin. He now weighs 220 lbs and is healthier than ever.

Infitas now has over 200 members and a new mission: To affect the greatest number of people as possible.

How to approach the WOD "MURPH": Scales & Strategies

Every memorial weekend thousands of CrossFit affiliates all over the world gather to perform the famous hero WOD "MURPH". We do this workout in honor of those who have served our country.

Here Coach Brandon goes over scales for multiple levels and which strategies would be best used in this workout.

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it "Body Armor". From here on it will be referred to as "Murph" in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
