TrainHeroic Coaches Win HYROX National Championship

Reach Functional Fitness (@reachfunctionalfitness) out of Knoxville, TN is a family of athletes as young as 14 and as old as 63. With members ranging from law enforcement to supermoms, and several Spartan coaches—two at the elite level—the Reach community is one of big heart, badass endurance, and massive functional engines.

Taylor Haney, owner of Reach, is proud to announce they have two teams that qualified for the HYROX World Championships in Leipzig, Germany coming up in September. The HYROX competition runs along the same veins as endurance obstacle racing like the Spartan Race or their spinoff, DEKA, “the decathlon of functional fitness.”

Pride Inside and Out

Author: Craig Freund

Over his years helping gay clients work through emotional traumas, Craig Freund has witnessed trends relating to shame, self-esteem, and body image. Queer people are more likely to experience body image issues due to being historically ostracized from society. Healing from internalized shame takes practice, but ultimately leads to a positive feedback loop for your mental and physical health. Craig recommends practicing positive self-talk, setting realistic goals, and celebrating your wins to fight the shame demon and crush your fitness goals.
