Drop and give me 20! No?  OK then.  Here’s a little news with your coffee instead. Some folks divide their year up into everything that happens before Christmas and everything that happens after.  Guess what event serves to mark the new year for CrossFitters?  You got it. ...

Greetings Warriors! If this one goes a little far afield, blame the late David Foster Wallace.  I’ve belatedly fallen under his spell, and must remind myself that reading the masters doesn’t mean you should try to imitate them, any more than reading up on Rich Froning’s program in...

Greetings Warriors! First off, in this, my first missive of 2014, let me take this opportunity to thank all of you, past, present and future PCF-ers, for living this dream with me.  It’s a privilege to be your coach and help you achieve your dreams.  Our...

My first CrossFit box in 2007 was only the second affiliate in Los Angeles and the 27th in the world.  By 2014 the number of official affiliates had passed 10,000.  Today, you can walk outside blindfolded in North Hollywood, throw a tennis ball and hit...

Team "East/West Fusion" won our first PCF T-Shirt prize in today's Team WOD competition! But everyone had a great time. "Toni's T-Rexes" and "Team Grrrl Power" fought to a photo finish. Best of all, our new Community Wall provides a warm backdrop to feature PCF Box Queen...

Hey Warriors!  Here's the view from Week 2 of the 2013 CrossFit Open Competition: In case any of you PCF alumni are doing the Open WODs in your basement, here's the video for this weeks' pain fest: http://od-iphone.crossfit.com/games/iphone/CrossFit_13-2WorkoutStandards130213_dyhW34Vqa30Le_ipod.mov Don't know yet how it'll translate on the blog, but...

Our Farm Team is still getting their Rx weights and muscle-ups down, but we're thinking long-range and starting our "Nasty Girls" journey today.  Modifications in place, spirits high, daily progress chugging along nicely. Week 4 of the Open is almost done, and Coach Randy is gunning...
