CrossFit Belltown’s Daisy May and Nadia Shatila journeyed to Heinsheim, Germany to compete at the International Weightlifting Federation’s World Master’s Championships this past weekend.

Nadia went 5-for-6, securing 57kg’s in the snatch and 75kg’s in the Clean & Jerk, for a total of 132kg’s.  Nadia won the Women’s age 35-39 / 53kg weight class (and by ‘won’… we mean World Champion!).

From Belltown To Barcelona

Tom Graff has been in Barcelona this past month,  working out at CrossFit Eixample and providing everyone with some pretty nifty threads.

CrossFit Eixample says “you don’t need to be the best to start, but you need to start to be the best!”  We couldn’t agree more.

Five-Minute Challenge: Roll Your Feet On A Tennis Ball To Loosen Tight Hamstring

When you massage the soles of your feet, you loosen the starting point of a network of connective tissue that runs all the way up your back-body to the crown of your head. So it stands to reason that massaging your feet can loosen your hamstring(s). And it’s just that easy!
