July Blog Update!

I know most of you have noticed, and surprised none of you have commented to me, that the blog has slowed down a bit over the last 6 weeks or so…

Two friends (Orion Tulchin and Greg Walker) and I recently started a company, Renegade Fitness, and lots of other opportunities have been popping up, so life has been absolutely insane for me!

You know what, though? Excuses are like butt-holes; everybody has them. Pardon the graphic analogy, but it’s true. I can say, “there’s not enough hours in the day” all I want, that’s not going to change anything. I am trying more and more to live my life under MY terms and realizing that I can do anything I put my mind to. It’s time to reprioritize and “Git ‘er done“!

July 1st is tomorrow and I am promising you right now, the supporters of my blog, that we’re going to be back in full swing!

This weekend, results posts from the last week or so are going to be written and their videos will be shared. In the coming weeks I have another GOAL CRUSHERS post, an AMAZING Success Story post about two of our very own (plus one from a NON-CFLW athlete), some Recipes to share with you and a whole lot of AWESOMENESS! I’ll also write a post explaining Renegade Fitness, where it started and why Greg, Orion and I are so excited to have taken this venture together.

You guys really are the best, and I hope that you feel more connected to this blog once more. We had a ton of momentum and interaction going, and I hope to blow that out of the water starting in July! Keep this thing a dialogue, and let me know what you’re looking for from me.

We’ll be talking soon!


  1. Keep up the great work Tom. I appreciate all of your help and guidance and that “winning” attitiude of yours bro. Thank you for riding my ass on form and technique even though when it happens mid-WOD most days I want to hurt you(in a loving way). I enjoy the gains I have made in strength, balance, agility, accuracy, endurance and power daily in both my workouts and regular life chasing around my wife and kids. I take a lot of pride in the culture of teamwork, comradery, work ethic and joyous pain that you all have crafted over the past 16 months of my attendance there and look forward to our continued evolution both as a unit/group and as individuals.
    Your boy, CC

      CC, thank you so much for those kind words. Getting the chance to work with all of you is the highlight of my day, every day.
      The family that we have at CrossFit Lakewood is truly special, and you are a critical piece of that!
      Thank you for everything, and I look forward to continuing to make memories with everyone.
