BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Give what has been given to you.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Give what has been given to you.

This past Monday, the 29th of April, I had the pleasure of attending a gathering for a friend… an affair that celebrated a milestone achievement for her. Admittedly nervous and a bit reluctant to take center stage, she stood in front of a crowd and shared part of her story. So much of what she touched on was powerful, but the thing that I heard loudest was this:

Give what has been given to you.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: WHAT is right, rather than WHO is right.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: WHAT is right, rather than WHO is right.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! I inherited a lot from my dad. His sense of humor. His love of sports and passion for coaching. His sensitivity and deep compassion for people. His desire to be an entrepreneur. Having a role model as a kid that became a best friend over time was...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! I’m performing my second wedding ceremony this weekend! Many of you know Matty Skarz and his bride-to-be, Angel. Here’s to a celebration of laughter and love! I’m honored to be the officiant on Saturday for someone who has helped me and...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Do the things you enjoy as much as possible

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! I was texting with a friend this week, someone I haven’t seen in a while. She asked how life was going? Rather than the typically easy “Life is good” reply, I stopped to actually think about how things were going lately. I thought back to just...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life

One of our dogs got a rough diagnosis this week. She’s likely in the 9th inning. The Bright Spot is twofold…1) We get to spoil the Hell out of her while she’s still kickin; 2) I found a great story…one that reinforces the importance of living in the moment…recounted by a veterinarian. It’s titled ‘Why Dogs Live Less Than Humans” and it goes like this:

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Build Deeper Relationships

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Build Deeper Relationships

We’ve had a number of people send cancellation requests in the past couple weeks!

How on earth is this a Bright Spot? Well, for the past year or so my focus has been to try to help people where THEY are rather than try to fit them into our service offerings. The cancellation requests have prompted a different response from me. They have forced me to put my new purpose into PRACTICE. Instead of replying that I am sad to see them go and wish them good luck, I have tried to uncover what it is that they REALLY need…why they REALLY want to depart…and offer an alternate path to help.

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously

Marcus Aurelius once wrote, “Alexander the Great and his mule driver both died and the same thing happened to both.” What he was expressing was simple… Even if you do something so amazing that you leave a lasting legacy, you will be buried in the same dirt as everyone else! Even if you do something as transforming as invent the television (aka the “image dissector”), you will likely be forgotten not long after you leave life.

Broccoli, Egg and Cheese Casserole

Broccoli, Egg and Cheese Casserole

My last egg casserole was a bit of a disappointment for me. Lacking flavor, I just didn't want to eat it. This time I used some different ingredients for a protein packed breakfast that is easy to make, and inexpensive! Ingredients: 7oz Frozen Hash Browns 1 Cup 2%...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: Believe You Can

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! I can deadlift 400 pounds! Okay, maybe not yet. But I choose to believe that I can. And I am putting it here so that you all know my goal. If I do everything in my power to stay focused, train, and avoid injury there is no reason I can't deadlift...

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY: “It’s CrossFit. Nobody cares.”

BRIGHT SPOTS FRIDAY! Our annual in-house competition will feature a record turnout! I'm blown away that we will have 72 Nevermorons throwing down on Sunday. What I'm most stoked about is the amount of new faces that are slated to compete! On that note, if there is ANY...

Coach Emma’s Transformation

Above are pictures of my journey of fitness, finding myself, and ultimately being happy. I grew up in a house of competitive athletes. My dad was big into marathons. My older brother was a big time runner.  And I ran track in high school and college. I was captain of...

TRANSFORMATION THURSDAY (A different type)

“A lot of you already know my story. And some of you don’t. But this transformation story will not be just about my weight loss but so much more.   The girl on the left is new to Maryland, and shortly before she really started CrossFit, she had dabbled. She has...
