Chrono Crossfit – Hillsborough, NJ

Weird, I work in the pharmaceutical industry and my home office is in NJ?  Go on….

After business hours, I dropped in to Chrono Crossfit and met Anton, Yuri and the dog, Volt (I think?).  It’s set back in a business park, but google maps got me to their front door with no problem.


We warmed up with some active movements and then moved into a strength WOD with front squats (5 sec up and down) 5×5 and barbell rows (which Yuri helped me work on my upper back erectors, sorry for the poor physiology term).  The endurance WOD was:

  • One arm Russian KB swings
  • One arm KB cleans
  • One arm KB squats
  • 7 x 4
    • One round consists of all movements done with the left arm, then done with the right arm.  Each exercise was performed w 4 reps.

One thing I really enjoy about dropping in at other gyms is experiencing their training methodology.  This particular drop in was great because they had me focus on single handed kettle bell work that I simply have little experience with.  Yuri really paid a ton of attention to me during my warm up, strength WOD and endurance WOD.  Simply good guys with some really kind members.  These guys have a keen focus on form and resultant functon.

We are busy. We are overbooked. We are traveling. We are unmotivated. We are tired. We are agitated. We are unproductive. We are overweight. We are unhappy. We are why. I'm a pharmacist, I travel regionally for work and have been all of these things. What elevates me from these emotional ditches? Good health. My nearly 100 year-old Italian grandmother "Nana" said a long time ago: "If you don't have your health, you don't have nothing." Considering she still rakes leaves and gives me hell for, well, just about everything, I think she's pretty damn sharp and fit. On the other end of the spectrum: My dad died at 65 from a heart attack. He was a diabetic, a previous smoker, a recovered drug addict, a food addict, hypertensive, arthritic, immobile nearing amputation and, simply, wasn't living. For all intensive purposes, I'm fit and healthy. Armed with degrees in biology and pharmacy (read: loans) and these two family stories, you'd think staying on track is easy. Newsflash: it's not. Traveling / Working / Fathering / Mothering / fill-in-the-blanking are obstacles we all have to overcome. So, how do we do it? Suitcase Fitness was born from the hope that by sharing my small health and fitness victories while traveling, others may be inspired to find new ways to stay engaged with their health. My vision is that others will use this venue to share their "baggage" and small steps taken to overcome health challenges. I get by with a little help from my friends. - The Beetles The things that last, never happen overnight. - Slaves
