  • Activations and Mobility

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on August 1, 2013

    I get this question all the time: “When should I stretch?” This is definitely a very important question, and one well worth the time. Mobility is probably one of the most avoided pieces of quality training habits. I am just as guilty as the next athlete of not holding myself to a mobility regimen. First […]

  • [VIDEO] See it. Do it.

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on April 30, 2013

    With all this talk of video analysis, I think it’s important to continue to emphasis the power of visual learning. For many students, an organized leg cycles under the hips and extension at the top of a barbell lean are theoretical concepts. “Yea, I get it in theory. But, how or does that ever really happen?” is […]

  • Two Years

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on April 12, 2013

    This day, April 12th, marks two years of Functional Fitness on the Bluffs in business. Exactly two years ago to the day, I watched Danny lead three brave souls through our first workout on El Medio Bluffs in Pacific Palisades. I couldn’t have imagined that the beach towels we used for mats on the rocky, […]

  • WLC 2013: Personal Experience

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on February 13, 2013

    As most of you know, we as a community are going to be participating in The Whole Life Challenge. I am not sure where you stand with this as far as your participation, but I would like to tell you my story in case you don’t already know. It was last year when my life […]

  • Dodge Soreness, Dodge Fitness

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on January 30, 2013

    I caught a glimpse of a conversation the other day between a group of people that were all supporting two very clear points. The first was about how active they all were. They loved exercise, running, yoga, etc. The second thing they all agreed on was this notion that being sore was the enemy. They […]

  • Want: Level 10

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on January 24, 2013

    Is there something that you’re after? I mean, not necessarily with regards to training. I just mean in general. Do you have some master plan? A big fat goal? I hope so. We seem to attract people that say, “Yes!’ to those questions in our community. Whether you own up to it or not, however, […]

  • Save Face and Sign Up

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on January 15, 2013

    In light of our very own Dana McCreary crushing her half marathon goal Sunday (Woop Woop!), Make Sh*t Happen, the resurrection of the endurance program, and let us not forgot all those New Years Resolutions, I found myself reflecting on my own to-do’s, to-be’s and to have-not’s in the world of health & fitness. One […]

  • Resolution Proof

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on January 10, 2013

    A friend of mine in the performance world made a great comment just before the New Year that struck me. The gym that he trains at in Austin, TX is notorious for mentally and physically crippling training sessions designed to build capacity for soldiers, including special forces operators and specialty law enforcement units. What he […]

  • UPDATE: ‘The Nation’ Makes Goals Happen

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on January 9, 2013

    Early last month we kicked off a whole new revamped goal setting program with a first annual event called Make Sh*t Happen 2012. This new goal setting event was a hit, and the attendance proved that. What good is goal setting, however, if you don’t accomplish them? Well, folks are already crushing some pretty remarkable […]

  • Is Sitting & Standing a Life or Death Task?

    By The Fake Gym | In Uncategorized | on January 8, 2013

    I was talking to a friend the other day and he was telling me about an interesting study he came across. The  study is based on a test called “Teste de Sentar e Levantar,” or The Sit and Stand Test, and the European Society of Cardiology released the studies findings just this past month. “The test […]
