“Speak only if it improves upon the silence”  Gandi


Hey Athletes…..

We have decided to open up the blog to the public.  I am here to answer all of your berning questions (Hey AJ, see what I just did there).  All you have to do is sent me an email with the title Hey Bernsie!.   Here are a few examples of some of the letters I have already recieved…..

Hey Bernsie! lately my knee aches when I squat.  What am I doing wrong?” signed Miley

Well Miley when you squat you are supposed to drive your knees out.  From what I see from twerking they knees come in.  Try squatting the right way and stop hanging out with Robin Thicke even tho Blurred Lines still makes me tap my foot when I hear it.


Hey Bernsie! How do I cure a hangover?” Signed 7th year in college and not getting a PhD.

Well I don’t have a time machine or a DeLorean but I would start with the night before.  Just because the song Shots comes on doesn’t mean you have to do shots.  Put down the Bud Lights and pick up a book.

“Hey Bernsie! What does Justin do with his hair to make it look so amazing?” Signed Angelo Gala.

Angelo! Just ask Justin at the next staff meeting.  I don’t have all the answers but his hair is magnificent.

If you need help or just someone to talk to about anything please feel free to email me.  It would be selfish of me to keep all this wisdom to myself….What’s that…We’ve got one more question….

Hey Bernsie! What’s the Comp WOD this Friday?” signed Austin Reed

Feliz Lunes a todos…

After having so many of you come up to me and express your love for this workout, we are bringing it back for another round.  It’s a reasonable way to get some good, complex volume in while not crushing everyone à la the last few Mondays.  In other news, since I am sure many of you having been thinking about it every waking hour of every day this month:  the Paleo Challenge is coming to it’s official end this very Thursday!  No longer will you have the crushing guilt of eating the exact same way you ate before…now it’ll just be the regular level of guilt (ba dum psh!).  I, of course, am kidding.  Many of you have done super well this month and I would love for you all to keep your efforts going!

This week I will show you how,
