May Blog: Enjoying the Journey


After having my daughter, Blakely, I put pressure on myself to get back to where I was before. When I would leave the gym, I’d often be frustrated because I didn’t feel as strong as I thought I should. I lost sight of what going to box was for me as I was only focused [...]

When or Why should you use a belt?


Wearing a Belt?!?!   It is time to belt up… Possibly.  The answer can be a complex and controversial topic, but I’ll try to break it down.     Are you new to lifting or have been consistently coming to Ammo less than 6 months?  If the answer is yes, then It’s probably too soon [...]

Refocusing on Refinement


When I started doing CrossFit, 7 years ago, I had one goal in mind. I wanted to lose weight, and in doing so, improve my overall health and wellness. That would not be hard, given the fact that at 30 years old I weighed about 260#.  The workout, at my first foundations class, seemed easy [...]

Fighting Fleeting Motivation


My personal journey in CrossFit started about 8-1/2 years ago. Over those years there have been very few occasions that I did not WOD 4-5 times a week. That means that I have either just reached or am about to complete my 2000th WOD. Some of those weeks or months I was very motivated and [...]

Comparison Free Zone


Since starting the comeback process from my elbow injury, I have been working through some mental challenges. With the help of my amazing husband, some close friends, and a short podcast I listen to daily, my mental challenges do not seem as big anymore. One of my biggest mental battles has been comparison. Once I [...]

Train For Longevity


When we decided to write a blog my immediate reaction was, “no one is going to read what I have to say.” While this may be true, hopefully those who do read this find value or can offer their own viewpoints on the subject. With that said, I wanted to give you some details regarding [...]
