Another local Paleo blogger

Job well done last night! I threw a serious WOD your way, and you all handled it with ease.

I’m so excited to have another local “Paleo” blogger join our little but growing Auburn CrossFit community. And she’s got the hook up on some local grass-fed beef. In my opinion, if you want to beat those horrible factory farms, buy local! Thanks for the shout out on your blog, Molly! Check it out and try some of the recipes and let us know how you like them. Anyway, here is the link.  a foothill home companion

Saturday's Invasion of Auburn CrossFit!


Thanks, to the American River CrossFit crew who came out to show their support for one of their own. I left the gym on Saturday with the feeling like I had made my parents proud! I’m glad you all liked the Auburn CrossFit facility. It means a lot to me that you all had the chance to help me break it in and I couldn’t have been happier with the turn out. I had a lot of fun and you are all welcome back anytime. Thanks!!!

ARCFit breaks in the new box!

American River CrossFit will be here today at 11:00 am to help break in the new box with a WOD! Newbies still at 9:00am and 10:00am. If you’re an experienced CrossFitter and want to work out with some good peeps from Sacramento come join us at 11:00am. Even if you’re not experienced but want to hang out, meet some new people and watch them do a WOD ARCFit style, you’re welcome to come by. We’ll have some fun and get our weekend off to a great sweaty start. If we don’t see you today, enjoy the warm weather and go do something outside!

We had some more new athletes walk through the door today. You both kicked ass by the way, good job Brenda and Amber. So, Amber has a pretty cool blog going called, Render The Fat. She used to be a vegetarian and has now been 100% Paleo for 14-15+ days. Not sure, but there may have been a small transition into the meat world before Paleo… I personally think that’s pretty cool to find someone out there who cared enough to do the research on their own and make the necessary changes to be and feel as healthy as possible. Awesome job Amber! I also think it’s great that she is local to Auburn, is a culinary student, and wants to be a member at our gym! Pretty fantastic, right? Anyway, go check out her blog and give her a hi-five when you see her in the gym. Here is another link to her blog, Render The Fat!

Coconut flour tortilla

On Sunday evening Rosie made some Paleo tortilla-ish shell things. She got the recipe from her parents who have been following a Paleo nutritional program since February, good job to them! They are seeing some amazing results and feeling great! You’ll find that I enjoy posting about nutrition. With good reason, nutrition is where 80 plus percent of your results will be coming from!

Anyway, here is the recipe for the tortilla-ish shell:

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup water

1/4 tea spoon baking powder

8 egg whites

and mix them up

Put coconut oil in a pan, just enough to cover the bottom, cook like a pancake.

If you are down with some beef, add the yolks to your meat to not waste the yolk!

We had some white fish, mixed greens, hot salsa, olives, and raw cheese on top of the shell, enjoy!


Check out this video on the shoulder trifecta,

Day one was a success, THANK YOU!

Opening Day at Auburn CrossFit 10am


Thank you to everyone who came out for opening day at Auburn CrossFit! I was excited to see so many people Saturday morning, I’m not sure I could have asked for a better group. The first couple to workout at ACF, Steph and Rich at 9 am killed their first ever CrossFit WOD! At 10am we had 7 athletes, WOW! Theresa worked her butt off even after she missed a box jump and got a scrape on her shin. Doreen went right to work and scaled the box jump to her ability and stayed with the group, nice work! Katy stayed after waiting for her ride, grabbed a bar and went to work on her lifting. Coach Ryan was there to help, thanks Ryan. Dominic and Hana, total athletes you guys ROCK! And Kelly, what a surprise that was! Thank you Jenny S. for telling her about ACF! Kelly was a client of mine at my boot camp in Elk Grove, and now she lives in Auburn (she used to drive from Roseville). Can’t forget Kyle he was a big help getting this place ready for the big day. Good job, Kyle! At 11 am Keith came in with an amazing display of athleticism, this guy is going to be hard to keep up with. I’m excited to see how this community grows. You all gave me confidence on what this community can and will be, thank you so much.
