This is a place for people who are determined to improve their fitness and wellness. We provide levels based on your goals, interest and commitment but we strive to form one community. Learn more about our two class offerings below.

#Repost @orionhones ・・・ SHOULDER WARMUP🔥🔥🔥 ———————————————————————— My next series of videos will be all upper body pushing and so let’s WARM IT UP!!! ———————————————————————— I particularly I like this progression from the plank position because it allows the athlete to find range through dynamic motion. Having the midline and opposite shoulder assist in stabilizing also expands the athletes ability to balance and transfer force! 🏄🏼‍♂️ ———————————————————————— One thing to keep in mind is that having a basic ability to support one’s body Is a prerequisite for this. Particularly for those athletes or clients That are either heavier or just have low bodyweight strength, this may not be the best option. Make sure the athlete is actually getting the desired stimulus, not just going through the motions in shit/dangerous positions! ☠️ ———————————————————————— 🇺🇸 TRY IT OUT🇺🇸 #TRYITOUT #TRYITOUTNATION #shoulderwarmup #warmup #workout #IfYouWannaBeStrongGetStrong #IfYouWannaBeWarmGetWarm #BodyUp #Austin #AustinFit #Fitness #FunctionalFitness #Coach #atx

#Repost @orionhones ・・・ High Bar Backsquat ✊ ••• SO MANY CUES!!! 💯 ••• Though all of the points of performance in the video above are important, I find that the most glaring improvement that can be made for most athletes is their setup, particularly when it comes to starting and staying in a braced position.🧠💪 ••• Pay close attention and you’ll see that I unrack the bar into a position that is immediately braced, with the spine neutral and hips square. During the entire squat I am trying to Feel my obliques crunching down, which gives me a good idea of whether or not I’m keeping tension throughout the full range of motion. 🏆 ••• TRY IT OUT🇺🇸 ••• #IfYouWannaBeStrongGetStrong #BodyUp #Austin #AustinFit #Fitness #FunctionalFitness #Coach #weightlifting #olylifting #olympicweightlifting #squat #backsquat

Athlete of the Month: Brian Breen aka @red.heavy _____________________________________________________ Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: I’ve been doing CrossFit for almost 7 years Q: What are your favorite movements? What is your favorite workout? A: My favorite movement would have to be any of the push movements (strict press, push press, jerks) and my favorite workout is Cindy. It’s lower skill level, but you got to shut your brain off and just go to do well in that workout. Q: How did you get started in CrossFit? A: I got into CF after I stopped playing rugby. I always loved training and I still had the drive to compete, and CF gave me an outlet for that. It was a very natural progression. Congrats Brian! #crossfitjääkarhu #jääkarhu #community #crossfit #fitness #austin

October Athlete of the Month: Malorie Bacon AKA @unique_physique !!!! • • You only continue to surprise us all, this is well deserved! • Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: 4 months. • Q: How did you get into it? A: Earlier this year I had a concussion while training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I took some time off to recover and started looking for a new, physical outlet. I knew a friend who did crossfit and started talking to her about it. I had never tried crossfit and always felt like I wasn't strong enough for it. I explained my hesitation to her, but she said the workouts could be modified until you could do the work outs as prescribed. I tried it out and immediately loved it. • Q: What is your favorite movement? A: Squats are my favorite movement! I'm stoked to say I just PRd on back squats this past week! As for workouts, my favorites are typically chippers. • • Well done Malorie, your hard work always pays off 💪🏽

We’ll miss you Alex! Thank you for being part of our Karhu Perhe 🐻 and for being such a great example to those around you 💪 - #Repost @_alexengen ・・・ With today being the day I move to the burbs, I had to say goodbye to my favorite community of fitness I’ve ever been a part of. Over the past year or so, I have started almost every weekday morning working out at 6:30am. It became my passion and the fire that drove me for the rest of my day at work and with my wife. I am forever grateful to the coaches and athletes that helped kick my butt every day. 1st picture is most of my class at 6:30am. Some new, some old (@bookoute 👵🏻), but everyday I looked forward to seeing these people to start my day. 2nd picture are the 5:30am guys that set the tone for my workout. Coming in early was a blessing and a curse. A blessing to see their intensity and determine my own game plan, but a curse to see some of the grueling work they were putting in knowing that my fate was inevitable. @doe_cho was not smiling cause he was holding back tears... This post is for these people and for all those that have been supporting my journey with @karhustrength. I am so grateful for the opportunity and am so excited for my next chapter with Rachel and our family. Until next time...

Athlete of the Month: Bobby Nussbaumer aka @bobbynuss •••• Bobby: Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: It’s been 3-1/2 amazing years. I started crossfit in May of 2015 and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Q: How were you introduced to CrossFit? A: A friend invited me to his box for a workout and I had no idea what I was getting into. We did some lifting first and then started the AMRAP. 12 minutes of rowing, TTBs, KB swings and pushups. It didn’t seem too bad on paper but after about 6 minutes I was laid out on the floor gasping for air. I couldn’t believe how out of shape I felt. It took me a while to give it another shot but I’m glad I did. Q: What is your favorite movement/workout? A: Snatch was my weakest lift for a long time but over the past year it’s become my favorite lift. Workouts are tough to choose... I’m gonna say my favorite would probably be Holleyman. I’ve only done it once but it was a fun challenge. •••• 📸 @chris.perez.photography #crossfit #austin #jääkarhu #crossfitjääkarhu #fitness #community
