Crossfit Little Rock (@crossfitlr)

If you’ve never been to Arkansas, there’s good reason. I’m going to leave the low hanging jokes out of this and say, it’s just hard to get there.  I had to fly into Memphis and drive 2.5 hrs.  I use food to feel better about my challenging trips and this time around I made my way to Corky’s in Memphis before making the drive.



Bad idea bro. Total food coma. Energy drinks, bad idea at 830p. Sunflower seeds for days and all over the rental. Weird, they blow back in when you spit shells out of the window. I got some looks when I dropped this thing off.

Feeling just a little food guilt and having some time post meeting, I dropped in at Crossfit Little Rock.

After competing in a 2 day competition over the weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to find this workout:


On a sleepy, overcast day in LR, I was joined by only one other member for this class. I was coached by Chad and i have to say: I love dropping in to new places because I generally get great coaching and pick up new tips. Chad’s coaching was no different. I picked up some good pointers on improving my hand stands as well as my rowing form.
All in all, a good experience. Look them up if you’re in town!

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
