  • A LIFESTYLE Change - Meet Lauren R.!

    As Lauren R. takes off to start a new journey with her family and a new career chapter of her life, she takes with her a leveled up version of herself - one that she didn't think possible a few years ago... the confidence, strength and fortitude she has soaked up here at STF and beyond is something worth noting. She has not just changed her weight, and body image, but HER LIFESTYLE, not just for her but for her entire family, plus her best of friends that support her, both past and those newfound friendships inspired through fitness. We celebrate Lauren's successes in the last year+ that she was with Strong Together Chester - she is truly an inspiration and one that we want YOU ....

    Sally's Bucket List Story

    What will you cross off your bucket list this year? A nd, do you need fitness training to do it? One of our athletes, Sally K. recently took a trip to Norway where she Alpine toured the Lyngen Alps (you know, where you hike to the top instead of take a chair lift?). According to her she couldn't have done it without the past 3 months of Strong Together Fitness training which gave her the leg strength and lung capacity to make the climb. Happy Skiing Sally! Call us at 908 879 0363 if you want to explore your bucket list! ....

  • NEW skill of the week and Another push for one-on-one assessments!

    One of our most frequent suggestionsfrom our awesome members in the many surveys we put out has been to "teach me movement X" or "I need to spend more time on X outside of class but I don't know what to do!" so, here you go =] Every week, we will be putting some quick & dirty (<20 min) drills on the board (the board by the black cabinet) and they will stay up for the week to be used on any day you come in to the gym and want something extra outside of class time. They will not always be the sexy stuff! Don't avoid the non-sexy stuff because that is the stuff that makes sexy happen! ha! These Drills will be focused on the basic gymnastics movements for a ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #5 from Coach Joe

    #5 Have an Athletic event or goal in your near future.
    I personally registered for a weightlifting competition a month from now. I'm training hard for this and really don't want to show up and find out I am .5lbs over my weight class! So whether it's a local competition, a 5k holiday race, a winter fundraising hike, or a tennis or pickle ball match --- having a specific date set in the near future where you need to perform can be huge. When everyone around you is eating cookies and egg eggnog those 3+ miles will be in the back of your head whispering the right decisions. Coach Joe, OUT. ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #4 from Coach Trish (credit for this one goes to our awesome members!)

    Do you like to drink during the holidays?

    Alcohol is one of the BIGGEST reasons that the average weight gain over the Holidays is 15 POUNDS (Thanksgiving through the new year). So, what's a girl or guy to do?
    Now I don't drink myself but one of the best holiday tips I've heard in a while, is actually from TWO of our fabulous members - Nancy and Natalie - and that is this: Glass of Sparkling Water (any kind )+ a splash of wine, and maybe even a splash of cranberry juice.
    Genius! You get to indulge with a slight mock-tail, sip WAY less calories, and still be able to function the next day. BOOM! Best holiday tip ever, I hope you use it! Coach Trish, OUT. ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #3 from Coach Zack

    Make sure that no matter what is going on you do your best to stay in a routine.
    Making sure that you keep the same routine from the time you wake up to getting into the gym, all of it is very important to staying on track during the holidays! For example no matter what day is it, whether an active recovery day, day off work, my birthday, or Christmas Day, I always wake up at 5:00am. I have my cup of coffee and toast with peanut butter while I read a little bit and do 10 minutes of ROMWOD. It starts my day on a positive note and allows me to get things done while still having plenty of time left in the day. Then its off to the gym to workout in some capacity. Either a WOD or just ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #2 from Coach Joe

    #2 Don't get sick.
    Sometimes we forget that the flu throwing a wrench in your training is NOT an unavoidable part of winter. It's cold, your in-laws' kids are sneezing on you, and the news keeps saying this is the worst season in decades. I get it. But there are things you can do for your immune system besides wearing a medical mask at the Christmas party... Eat your veggies.
    Getting your essential vitamins and minerals is important if you want your body to fight off sickness with ease. For example, what I do is every morning I roll out of bed and chug a shake with lemon juice, ginger, green tea and whatever fruit/veggie i feel like blending that day. S

  • In a nutrition or fitness RUT? We all know this word well...

    When you’re in a nutrition RUT, it turns into an everything RUT. We all have bee there. Low energy, not sleeping, moody, and caffeinated on the reg. Worst. Feeling. Ever. You’re stuck. Can’t stop eating bad things. You’re down on yourself for it, you’re asking “why do I do this to myself?” You’re surrounded with self-doubt. You know it’s a problem but you just roll with it because at this point, why not, right? The biggest motivating factor (and not in a good way) that I see on a regular basis for members and friends, who are in this rut, is that they are overwhelmed with life. They’re overwhelmed with their ....

  • Visceroptosis

    What the hell is it? Welp. Visceroptosis is a prolapse or a sinking of the abdominal viscera (internal organs) below their natural position. Natural position, you guessed it, is where OPTIMAL flow happens - blood flow, bile flow, gut flow, flow to and from the ovaries, testes, etc. As we age, develop poor habits, poor posture, and allow ourselves to stoop into a sedentary lifestyle without proper daily and hourly movement, any or all of the organs may be displaced downward. We want to avoid this! Which is why we apply intention into our health and fitness, right? This is a HUGE deal. I've seen many people on the street lately that have this and it is extremely important to ....

    In All Out, movements are done at lighter loads and for a longer time frame, which makes the ALL OUTS more aerobic in nature. WODS on the other hand, tend to involve more resistance training, less reps than All Out, and so more anaerobic in nature. Does that make sense? Shorter workouts in the WOD classes allow for more time for the Strength and Skill progressions we incorporate. This difference is what keeps these two styles of workouts so different from one another, and gives our members options! We all love that, right?! We know that athletes will always lean toward one style over the other, it’s simply human nature. Usually you will move toward the one you KNOW ....

  • What do you think YOU should do?

    SHOULD DO? The other day an athlete of approx 2 years approached me and asked if she should squat to a box. Now this was a great teaching moment for me because I KNEW that she KNEW exactly what the answer was.. but sometimes people need a nudge. So I told her what she needed to do. But that got me thinking...Should I have answered? Or should I have asked "What do you think YOU should do?" With poor knees and a bad back, this woman knew she should listen to her body but she really wanted to keep up with the class and do what they were doing. But what would that do? Not a whole lot of good for those knee caps, and I might add, the potential to not be able ....

    Meet Coach Joe with a few words of wisdom for your week! We often find ourselves wanting so much in so little time. PRs, improving technique, learning new movements, oh yeah and finishing faster than the guy next to you… definitely need to beat him. Us CrossFit-ters are an ambitious bunch. But we don’t all have the mental fortitude of Katrin. We get discouraged if we’re not seeing all the things we want right now. Or if our long term goals seem miles away.

  • "What is the most PRESSING thing going on in your life for you right now?"

You see, we live in an age where being reactive in an environment is the norm. We’ve all heard “ignorance is bliss”, this is especially true today because most people will not make changes to either their routine or their lifestyle habits until something goes wrong. For many reasons, this is not the mentality to have and leads to a whole host of problems. So ....

    7 causes that lead to obesity & poor health bio-markers & how to avoid them… In 2013, the American Medical Association (AMA) officially recognized obesity as a disease. A committee set up to study the matter advised that obesity's classification should not be changed, but the delegates at the association's annual meeting overrode their recommendation. It was a controversial decision, to say the least. Dr. Patrice Harris, an AMA board member said that "recognizing obesity as a disease will help change the way the medical community tackles this complex issue that affects approximately one in three Americans.” Harris said she hoped the new definition ....

    As I bent over to take the green twinkling lights out from the red storage bin, my stomach tumbled over my waistband and peeked out from underneath my Charlie Brown Christmas themed t-shirt. Ugh, I thought. I have to do something. I am already jiggling like Santa, and I haven’t even begun the traditional holiday over-eating. So after lifting a few more boxes, and getting winded I decided to pursue a long-lost goal of mine— To do a Sparan Race. I put down the boxes, picked up my Mac and registered for the June 2 race. There, now I have about six months to train. Anxiously, I downloaded the five-week couch-to-Spartan and did ....

    WHY do I always get craps in my feet - calves - quads, etc. during exercise? WHY do I get a charlie horse in the middle of the night? WHY does it happen when I jump? Overuse of a muscle, dehydration, muscle strain or simply holding a position for a prolonged period can cause a muscle cramp. Most muscle cramps are harmless (even though they hurt like hell), some may be related to an underlying medical condition, vitamin deficiency, inadequate hydration or inadequate blood supply and flow. Now, there is no ANSWER to this mystery. Obviously hydration plays a HUGE part in the overall cause but many people that are sufficiently hydrated still get them! ....

    –Ernest Hemingway At the WODscars (our annual athlete appreciation event) I listened to a wonderful award given to a coach by an athlete.

    Chester Crossfit coach explores the Rockies

    Coach Joe here! If you noticed that I was missing for a few days its because I was in Colorado, dangling from a rope.. probably with a wedgie, probably with bloody fingers.. Okay that makes it sound like I had a terrible time. It was actually a total dream. Going to Colorado has been on my bucket list for more than a few years now and I got to check it off last week. With only 5 days including travel I had a lot of places to go and a lot of climbing to cram in a short time. I picked the perfect partner for just that, James has been a rock solid companion for any adventure I dream up. He makes up for my lack of map navigation skills and is one of the few people I trust with my life ....

  • The Right Shoe for WOD'ing and ALL OUT'ing

    Why Your Next Purchase Should Be A CrossFit Shoe (if you're Cross Training - which if you're reading this, that's probably a Yes!) So, for some of you CrossFit is this new thing. You might have just signed up for a 6-week challenge or became a full-time member. If that is you then CONGRATS! Some of us have been taking WOD classes or ALL OUT classes for some time now. I am sure that one of the first questions that comes up when coming to the gym every day is...what do I need? Workout clothes, maybe you bring a water bottle or shaker bottle for protein after, maybe a towel for all the sweat, and of course proper shoes. But when it comes to CrossFit gyms, proper shoes are an interesting ....

    September Athlete of the Month

    September's Athlete of the Month is Corey D! You may see not him around too often unless you're joining the early birds at 5:30 am or at the Saturday classes every now and then at Hackettstown. Corey is what we like to call, a humble lion. He shows up almost every Monday Wednesday and Friday (for the most part) in the darkest of mornings at 5:30. He doesn't say a whole lot--as most of us are still waking up--but once that clock beeps and the workout starts, his inner lion comes out. One of the coolest things we've seen in working with him is his determination and grit. After losing over 30 pounds, his technique and form has improved tremendously and he's even rocking toes to ....

Most of us know what to eat, but how many of us can honestly say that we know the PERFECT PORTION of all the foods we consume? Not only that but based on us as an individual, AND based on our specific goals, whether weight loss, toning, muscle gain, how much is really enough/too much? From our experience with thousands of athletes, the answer is NOT MANY. We are here to guide you through those portions, specifically catering each item ....

Growing up most of us probably had a banana packed in our lunch. I know my favorite lunch was and continues to be a peanut butter and banana sandwich. But where did this delectable berry come from (I kid you not, bananas are technically berries)? They're derived from a single flower with more than one ovary, making them an "aggregate" fruit. True berries are simple fruits stemming from one flower with one ovary and typically have several seeds. Tomatoes fall into this group, as do pomegranates, kiwis and—believe it or ....

    On August 6, 2011, a tragedy shook the military community and Americans everywhere. In a single instance, America lost 30 military service members, many of whom were members of the Navy SEAL community—and one military K9– when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter, call sign Extortion 17, was downed in Afghanistan. In the wake of the unimaginable tragedy, a mission was born. Following the downing of Extortion 17, a fundraising WOD—hosted at more than 430 gyms around the country with more than 10,000 participants—raised $300,000 over a four-week period to support the 30 families affected. This prompted the organizers to create The 31Heroes Project to remember our fallen ....

    The Gods VS The Mortals...........of CrossFit
    Have you ever wondered how the games athletes that we all see on social media and on television got that way? I can say that personally when I first saw these men and woman I thought they were insane and in crazy good shape. They all had that perfect body that we all chase and it just seemed like they were able to do anything that was thrown at them (of course that is the point of the CrossFit Games). But how did they get there? How do Rich Froning and Katrin Davidsdottir workout and can I do to look like that?! The answer is simple of course, they do CrossFit. Perfect! So, I will go ....

  • Quality over Quantity

    Quality over Quantity

    This week, Coach Mike and I discussed the issue of Quality vs Quantity in regards to workouts at Strong Together Chester CrossFit. "One of the things we've seen recently is people thinking they need to workout more instead of working out better or more intense. The time of your workout doesn't need to be three hours IF you're putting absolute effort into the hour that yo're here. Should I be doing workouts that are long and grueling and super heavy weights? Or should I do workouts that allow me to move a little quicker, a little bit faster, and still challenge myself with different strength aspects? That's what we want you guys to start thinking about... Are you challenging ....

  • How strong is strong enough?

    How strong is strong enough?

    How strong is strong enough? The beauty of this question is that there is no universally correct answer. Your answer is entirely up to you. Obviously, the answer is “as strong as humanly possible” for athletes competing in power lifting, Olympic lifting, and Strongman, and similar sports. The rest of us must weigh our answer and pursuit of PRs against many other worthy goals. At face value, I want every single person that I encounter at Strong Together Chester CrossFit to get stronger (and I fully support them wanting this for themselves). However, there comes a point when pushing your strength training above all else will bring more detriment than good. Any pursuit, in ....

  • The dangers of cherry picking workouts

    The dangers of cherry picking workouts

    Unless you’re picking them from a delicious tree you should not be cherry picking. Cherry Picking = The act of only going to workouts that you think are fun and easy, usually due to the fact that you feel you are or you are proficient in that main movement, movements, or repetition scheme. We all want to do a fun workout but the problem is if we only do fun workouts, or workouts that we are good at, we will stop growing and getting better. If we are always avoiding the workouts with back squats we will never get good at them. The goal of CrossFit and what Strong Together does is to make your fitness well rounded. We want you to be good at everything . We want you to be ....

That issue is recognizing one's accomplishments. One of the many many amazing things about Strong Together Fitness is that we find that athletes come in wanting to simply improve their overall health and improve their quality of life. However, we soon start to see that a lot of members begin to get hungry for more! That extra 5 lbs on the deadlift bar or the ever elusive first pull-up without bands.

  • A little bit o' PINEAPPLE info goes a long way!

    The Fighting Pineapple

    Pineapples, a tropic fruit of pure deliciousness. It looks intimidating with is spiky hard exterior but on the inside, it has a heart of sweetness, and wears a crown of envy. But pineapples aren’t just good for Pi ñ a Coladas, though those are just as tasty. First let me lay down some history. Back when Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492, or rather on his second voyage in 1493 he dropped anchor in the cove off Guadeloupe. In a deserted village, he found a strange and unique fruit that looked similar to a pinecone but had the inside similar to an apple (now you see where the name came from). He brought it back to ....

  • When to Train, more or less

    When to Train, more or less

    How much should you train? How many days should you workout? It all depends on you. Less than 2 percent of your week should go to fitness. We highly recommend that you spend 3 days a week in the gym. 3 hours, that's it. About 95 percent of your goals can be reached with proper nutrition and 3 classes a week. If you can only make 2 days, or even one, that is totally fine. Just try and do something somewhere. Maybe a 20 minute walk with your spouse or even a 20 minute yoga session at home. Just log some kind of activity and you will be just fine. Of course keep on proper nutrition. Remember even 1 day a week is exponentially better than NO days a week. What if you have some ....

    Accountability is the glue that ties Commitment to Results

    100 percent accountability. It is all on us. Everything. Whatever is going good is your fault. Whatever is going bad is your fault. The book Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win is a great read. But I can sum it up for you quickly… You are responsible for everything around you. It is not anyone else’s fault. I repeat it is not anyone else’s fault. If you got stuck in traffic and were late for work? Well sorry, that is your fault for not giving yourself enough time for it. You aren’t where you want to be in work or your personal life? You guessed it, your fault. People have too much of “it’s not my fault” or “I ....

  • Pelvic Dysfunction and Physical Therapy Seminar with Dr. Colleen Drahos, PT, DPT

    JOIN US!
    Many men and women go undiagnosed and untreated for years because they are embarrassed or have no idea what is going on with their body. Pelvic dysfunction affects about 25% of women from 30-70 years old, but many suffer in silence. Because of this many teenagers and adolescents, even men, go about their lives in pain. But what is Pelvic dysfunction?
    It's the loss of pelvic support due to an injury or stress of the pelvic floor tissue. Your pelvic floor is the deepest core muscle. It's the Core of your Core. These muscles play a major role in core stability and injury prevention. On June 2nd, Dr. Colleen Drahos from Northern Hills Physical Therapy will ....

  • THIS GIRL - Meet Jocelin.

    "Was only supposed to be 3 weeks but I was encouraged by the results to keep going for almost 6 weeks (vacation got in the way of sticking to it strictly right at the end). I'm pleased to say that I ended up down 15.5 lbs overall and loads of body fat gone. I feel better and am having fun. The coaches (especially Trisha Lou Terns and Christine Poole ) couldn't be more supportive and encouraging. And now I'm sticking to a modified version of the plan and keeping up with the workouts ongoing. The diet took a little getting used to, but is totally doable. Good luck to everyone starting now and if you're on the fence, it really does work. Give it a try! (Photo evidence ....

    4 reason to cut carbs

    Have you ever stopped to wonder what would happen to your body if you stopped eating refined carbs? It’s no secret that refined and processed carbs contribute to weight gain, and so reducing the amount of these in your diet would logically lead to a leaner, fitter you. But is it true, or is it hype? And is it really worth giving up your carboholic ways? Here’s what really goes down when you give up refined carbs… Body Change #1: You BURN FAT
    When you stop eating simple carbs your body no longer has readily available calories to burn, and so it clicks over into burning stored fat as energy. This means that your pants will start feeling looser around your waist and ....
