I decided it would be beneficial to my character, and probably my snatch, to try CrossFit firsthand rather than base my thoughts on the cult-like craze from what I see via Facebook, various blog posts, and other troll-harboring internet nooks.

This particular gymbox is called Alliance Training Center and aside from CrossFit, they offer Krav Maga and something called StrikeFit which is like a combination of a typical WOD and beating the shit out of a heavy bag.
Phy² – The Fundamentals of Health and Fitness.
In December of 2008 my yearning to aggregate my knowledge of, and passion for, health and fitness under a single banner (a brand, if you must), culminated with the fusing of two words into what I call physiometry.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, folks. One of the greats of our generation and a true inspiration. Educators like him make the world a better, brighter place.

I absolutely adore Ludovico Einaudi‘s music and this time-lapse is a beautiful pairing. Perfect for placeholder vids on theme previews.
There’s also The Water featuring Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven and performed by Marika Takeuchi and The Arctic Light featuring The Arctic Light by Marika Takeuchi.
