For Laura Howard it was love at first sight. She remembers those puppy love days during her first Muncie CrossFit classes at The Arsenal. “During the on-ramp classes, we would just mess around,” she told me. No, she’s not talking about her CrossFit-coaching firefighting fiancé, Adam James; she’s talking about someone else. She’s talking about […]

One of the first times I worked out with Christian Morgan he ran so fast I thought he was joking. As if he were just trying to win the first round of the workout and there was no way he could run at the pace throughout. I was wrong. He is fast. Grandma & Grandpa, […]
Muncie CrossFit Coach Jacob Sprong often coaches the 5:30 AM Muncie CrossFit class at The Arsenal. He’s not a stranger to the early hours. “I lived on a farm, so I got up at 5:45 AM, dressed, and went to work real quick. We worked 6 AM to 11 PM during planting season. Those were […]
First there was Athlete Emily Martin. Then there was Intern Emily Martin. Now there is Coach Emily Martin. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a member of the Muncie CrossFit community over the past four years is seeing people change over time. People are stronger, more confident, connected, and supported. Emily Martin is […]
(Note: Shannon is not a medical doctor, but she does have her PhD in adapted physical education, and she’s CrossFitted through two pregnancies, so she’s kind of an expert all the same.) It’s going to be hard “The first trimester is hard because you don’t really look pregnant, and you can’t really tell anyone you […]
Courtney Sudac pointed her car down the alley and when the sun splashed across the ice-crusted windshield, she couldn’t see. That wasn’t going to stop her. She didn’t want to be late for the 7AM Muncie CrossFit class at The Arsenal. “All of a sudden I hear a BANG!” Courtney told me. “I hit the […]
I pride myself on my lack of ego in the gym. I realize that sort of sounds like, “I’m awesome because I’m so humble.” But I’m not so ego-less that I’m going to let someone who is 8-months pregnant pass me. But here comes Shannon Dieringer, running like a Gazelle, a few steps behind me. […]
Everyone has their pre-workout routines. Some stretch. Some use the facilities (why lift more weight than you have to?). Some chat with their fellow CrossFitters. But there is only one person at Muncie CrossFit who reads calmly before a workout–Anna Marie Steinbarger. I have no idea how she sits there and turns page after page […]
A guy named Kelsey (me) asked a gal named Sam Jones if she wanted to be his bench press partner. During my heaviest set I struggled on the 10th and final rep. Sam, my spotter, hovered over me cheering me on. “I’m not helping,” Sam shouted. “Get it or you’re dead!” (Or at least something […]
Arsenal member Aaron Taylor worked 15 years as a firefighter. When I sat down to chat with him he had just worked his last day. “I just left a job that people don’t leave,” Aaron said. Firefighters can retire with full benefits after 20 years, so this was no small decision. “This is the first […]
