Smashed CrossFit: A Day in the Life!

I just wanted to make a short video showing what a typical day looks like. Here is what people should expect:

1. Mobility and Warm Up
2. Strength Training
3. Metabolic Conditioning
4. Core
5. Stretching

The only parts we left out were Mobility and Stretching. It’s not because they are not important. I just didn’t catch it on film.

We are a little more specific to the Olympic lifts this week. The volume is high this week. Yesterday kicked all of our butts, but I believe that I have an advantage over other coaches. I am in the trenches with my athletes. It’s harder, but it really earns their respect more.

I’m on my way to the Attitude Nation for Weightlifting Talk on Spreaker.com(that’s a plug). Then I get to watch MashMafia OG Amy Steller play collegiate basketball at Pfeiffer University. There’s nothing I’d rather do than watch my athletes do their thing.

2013 has been a great year for Mash Elite Performance. We have experienced growth in so many areas of our business, and I am very thankful for God being so gracious to us. My prayer is that we might glorify Him within our business in our actions and the way we treat our MashElite Family. Here is a list of some of the other things that I am thankful for:

1. Weightlifting Talk on Spreaker.com and everything that comes with it. My friend Jon North brought me into the Attitude Nation Family in February. Now I feel like I have an extended family of thousands of people that listen and support our podcast. We are Family!

2. My MashMafia Weightlifting Team! Now with my online coaching, I have athletes all over the country that I talk and work with on a weekly basis. The folks that I work with on a daily basis at the Mash Compound are like Brothers and Sisters.

3. My whole MashElite Family, athletes, morning crew, Smashed CrossFit, Training For Warriors, and our one on ones are the simply the best. I love you all. We do life together, and I would have it no other way.

4. My wife! Emily Drew is the Proverbs 31 wife. I am so blessed to have her, and I thank God every day for her.

5. My daughter! I thank God that I’m able to have a relationship with Bailey even though she lives in Minnesotta. Thanks to the success of our business, I have the ability to see her on a regular basis.

6. My Family and Friends! I’m blessed with the best of each.

7. The best Church Family in the World!

Have a Happy Holiday Season!
