We hope you and your families are healthy and safe during these “unusual times.” This crisis will eventually pass and we will, again, be able to do all those things that “sheltering-at-home” has denied us, like going out for coffee, eating at our favorite restaurant and training at Replay CrossFit.

  • Till then, CrossFit USA is leading a “Support Your Local Box Benefit” to help your favorite CrossFit Box affected by COVID-19 (that would be us). This is all about c o m m u n i t y.

About Mihai and his AMAZING transformation

About Mihai and his AMAZING transformation

Hello everyone! Last week we had the chance to talk with Mihai, one of our most devoted members. His amazing transformation is so inspiring! This is how he got from 105 kgs to 84 kgs. innocent

"Going to CrossFit is one of the best things that happened to me and I couldn't be happier it happened at Replay CrossFit, my second home.
I thought that having a fit body was not for me. I could not picture the possibility of having an active life. This is how it was for me, and fitness was not part of my time. I was dead wrong, because being fit and healthy IS an integral part of one's life.

I thought playing football once a week would be enough to keep myself in shape. Again, dead wrong - one hour/week dedicated to sports is like doing other activities in your life only once a week, like taking a shower or brushing your teeth. It’s useless and leads to bad health.

I dont have enough TIME

I dont have enough TIME

As most of you know- we run Replay learning from THE best in the field.
We listen to Ben Bergeron’s educational podcasts. 
We implement the best practices for our members.
We use his Comptrain programming for our classes. 
We even trained at CrossFit New England and asked MORE questions. Pic from 2016 (Annoying, I know ...)innocent
 
We keep on learning. We’re not there yet.
SO- whenever we hear “ I don’t have time to work out” - something we heard a million times in 2019- we try very hard not to go ...hmm..bananas! 
 
We’ll quote Ben Bergeron on this topic:

Happy New Year 2020!

Happy New Year 2020!

Happy New Year to You!

We’ve been quiet over the past few weeks, not because we didn't miss you, but because we’ve been recharging our batteries and planning an Amazing January at Replay! 

We know this is the time for big dreams & incredible resolutions. Working out 5 times per week. Waking up before dawn. Meditating every morning. Shedding 20 kilos on a very strict diet.

Everybody loves a fresh start and this is not what you want to hear, but New Year Resolutions don't work. It's not a secret anymore: most resolutions fade away by February. Ops..we've said it.

Giving thanks

The CrossFit OPEN went out with a bang: amazing personal records and a lot of fight!

Mark Twain famously said: “It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.” True. 

So, Joe and I would like to congratulate ALL OF YOU for putting up a good fight during the last 5 weeks.

Jump for Joy!

It’s a well-known secret that jumping rope creates amazing fitness results! Although is it still a secret if everybody knows? innocent

Jumping Rope quickly elevates your heart-rate, improves your cardio-vascular endurance, develops coordination & balance and makes you more agile. You can use it in the living room, garden, park and/or take it on travel. Anywhere, anytime.

If you wanna practice double unders or melt the body fat away, this is one of the fastest way to achieve it.

Protein Muffins in retaliation!

Protein Muffins in retaliation!

While everyone is fretting about the OPEN, we have food on our mind! tongue-out 
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And the most mismanaged one. (Moment to roll the eyes and mumble something dirty in defense undecided)

Every morning I watch in awe the long lines at Luca pastry shop in Pipera ... So easy to grab a warm pretzel or a merdenea on the way to work, right?
So I’ve decided to make this Cheesy Egg GLUTEN-FREE MUFFINS from Nom Nom Paleo in retaliation! laughing

When I was in school I skipped sport classes because I hated them. I completely avoided all sports. This is the longest relationship I’ve had with a gym! Today, people rarely work toward future improvements and I am no exception. But, in addition to the long-term benefits, Replay gives me instant rewards, too. Everybody wants the long-term benefits of CrossFit, but that is not what keeps me coming to the Box almost every day. What keeps me committed is the way I feel every time I come to Replay CrossFit. When I am in the Box and I listen to the Coach teaching me something new, I feel like a child: curious, trying to understand, attempting to learn. When I train I forget I have a job, tasks, chores, other roles in society. For one long moment, I am the sole inhabitant of my body and my mind and there is nothing more important than being my best self, physically and mentally. And when I finish training I feel like I did the best thing I could ever do with my time. When I see my small improvements, I acknowledge that every drop of sweat mattered and that I am constantly evolving for the best. And this is the GREAT lesson: If you want something, you must persist and it will happen for you.

For several years, I've been collecting gym subscriptions and not using them due to the boring "flatness" of the exercises. At Replay CrossFit I have found a new dynamic approach to my workouts - it's all about biomechanics and endurance of every dimension of your body. It was challenging in the beginning, but once you get to know the technique, there's nothing stopping you... only yourself! The classes that I've taken boosted my energy, accelerated my weight loss and muscle buildup in a sustainable and fun way. The community is awesome and always very supportive.

I recently went to Replay Cross Fit and as a former tennis player, I found it to be a much better than going to a regular gym. I love how challenging it is and how it keeps me motivated to become better with every workout. My favorite exercise is wall balls and my least favorite has to be burpees. Hands down! My goals are to improve my upper body strength, become stronger overall and just have a healthy lifestyle. This brings me to another great thing I love about Replay CrossFit --- I love being part of an awesome and supporting community that shares the same goals.
