“I guess I’m not wearing underwear today,” Dave said to himself, as he changed out of his workout clothes. It was a decision that he’d come to regret. [Enter Law & Order sound effect] “It was 2013. Move-in for Ball State.” Dave had to work a double shift and head to Indianapolis and back for […]

It’s hard to forget the first time I worked out with Dave Barnes. There were squats in our workout, and there were staples in Dave’s thigh. Dave is a police officer at Ball State and had been injured while chasing a fleeing suspect on foot. When I asked Dave if he’d chat with me about […]
Amanda Reninger and I have sweat gallons together at the Arsenal in downtown Muncie. We’ve seen each other fall and witnessed each others “Oh crap this is a lot of weight” faces. We’ve failed and we’ve high-fived, yet there is so much I didn’t know about Amanda. For instance, she’s an opera singer. A dead-lifting, […]
CrossFit was the best thing that happened to my family in 2013. I know that sounds like an overstatement of immense proportions. It’s not. Annie, my wife, agrees. And if you know Annie, she doesn’t overstate anything. Don’t get me wrong, we had a lot of awesome things happen personally (I taught my daughter how […]
One year before the birth of her daughter, Sonora, Dani Wasson felt like she was in great shape. She was running 12 to 15 miles per week, working with a personal trainer at LA fitness, and looking forward to a vacation in Hawaii.

The metaphor is that if you got up every day and ate a frog your day couldn’t get any worse because, […]
“I am not an athlete,” Arsenal member Jennifer Stanley, says, when I asked about her fitness history. “I’ve always associated CrossFit with extreme athletes, and frankly that’s not at all who I am. I’ve never considered myself an athlete. Not a day in my life.” I first met Jennifer the night before the Arsenal opened. […]
Matt Carder knows a thing or two about community. As the head pastor at Commonway Church, he leads a community of 600 members. But when he joined the Arsenal, he was all alone. That’s right, Matt was member #1. Matt and his wife Liz, the parents of a four-year-old daughter and a five-year-old son who just […]
Arsenal member Aly Williams has a masters degree in Exercise Science, and a PhD in Public Health, and when she first saw CrossFit, she thought: “Good gracious that looks like a lot of work.” That was four years ago when a group of her students did a 6 week study that compared CrossFit to a […]
This is the WOD (workout of the day) that broke me: 150 kettle bell swings 100 wall balls 50 burpees 25 inverted rows 12 back squats 6 Hand stand push ups 3 rope climbs I had to divide it up into depressingly teenie sets: 10 kettle ball swings, 5 wall balls, 5 burpees. And even […]
