The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport.

With an emphasis on education, the CrossFit Breaux Bridge staff holds nearly every certification that CrossFit HQ offers—this ensures that we know how to get you fitter both faster and safer. It is a common misconception that if someone is good at something, they must be good at teaching it. We have found this to not necessarily be the case and at CFBB, we put our effort into getting YOU healthy and well while also maintaining a positive example.





How do I get better at ______? We hear this often. And the answer, most of the time  is the same, Practice. Double Unders for example, are the death to some of us and we will leave the gym with more whelps than sweat. Some people will even skip days that have DU, running, burpees, or whatever  is troublesome to them. But, I guarantee  that by skipping those days you will never get better at those things that you hate. There are plenty of resources available to help you get movements that are challenging to you. First off, don’t skip on the days that have those movements that bother you. Second, you have some pretty knowledgeable coaches that can guide you through steps and progressions of attaining that movement. There is also open gym on Saturdays that can give you time to focus on a particular movement. Basically,  don’t skip because something is hard or you can’t do that movement. There is no double under fairy that sprinkles fairy dust on you while you are sleeping. Put in the work. Single Dumbbell shoulder to overhead will require us to really be stable through the core. If we let the weight get away from us and fall out of that frontal plane then the rep will most likely be missed. When completing the rep the arm, hips, and legs are fully locked out. Use your hips to get the weight from your shoulders to over your head. Keeping the weight in the heels, with the shoulders and hips stacked on top of them.

Common Rowing Faults and How to Correct Them

Rowing is an excellent exercise for people of all body types and fitness levels. It can be an effective tool in your fitness regimen whether you’re just starting out with CrossFit or have been hitting WODs for years. Not only is an indoor rower easy to use and accessible, the rowing technique is fairly easy to get the hang of. Rowing has tremendous physical benefits, as well: – It strengthens 9 major muscle groups  – Is an amazing cardio workout – Is very low impact – Burns calories – Measures your time, distance, calories, and pace Rowing also offers mental benefits when added to your training. Because the Concept2 rowers that we use at CrossFit Breaux Bridge and CrossFit St. Landry have computer screens that display your pace, time, and distance/calories, you are held accountable for every stroke. For this reason, you learn to pace yourself and “empty the tank” when the time comes — which can make for some very mentally tough men and women! There are a few common faults in rowing that could be preventing you from experiencing all of its wonderful benefits. Here are 3 faults that I see when coaching and some tips on how to fix them!   #1 Driving from your quads While it may seem beneficial to slide the seat as far forward as you can to get a long stroke, this position is mechanically disadvantageous for efficiency and muscle stamina. A better position would be to stop once the seat is 1-2 feet away from your heels. This “catch” position will allow for your hamstrings and gluteus muscles to initiate... read more
