Two weeks ago, Tuesday May 21st we noticed, the official CrossFit Instagram page was gone.

Followed with their Facebook page leaving fans in dismay and confused at how a total following of over 10 million can just suddenly vanished overnight.

Where has CrossFit gone? Why has the company suddenly deserted millions of followers?

Why the only social pages still live are Twitter and YouTube?

Well, we finally know the answer. CrossFit confirmed removing all their Facebook and Instagram channels indefinitely by Greg Glassman.

“I can confirm that CrossFit [has] removed all their Facebook and Instagram channels indefinitely,” wrote Ollie Mansbridge, the director of Strength in Depth and manager of the CrossFit UK Facebook page. “I have just received notification that the CrossFit Twitter account will remain. Our U.K. CrossFit FB and Insta page will also be shifting over to Twitter.”

Justin LoFranco of the Morning Chalk Up cracked the mystery behind the missing Social media accounts of Crossfit after a phone call with CrossFit’s Founder himself, Greg Glassman.

Glassman told Justin “All activity on CrossFit, Inc.’s Facebook and Instagram accounts is suspended as of May 24, 2019, as CrossFit investigates the circumstances pertaining to Facebook’s deletion of the Banting7DayMealPlan and other well-known public complaints about the social-media company that may adversely impact the security and privacy of our global CrossFit community.”

Furthermore, Glassman added “The final straw was when they deleted without notice or explanation a low carb high fat FB page with 1.6 million users in South Africa. While the site has subsequently been reinstated (also without warning or explanation), Facebook’s action should give any serious person reason to pause, especially those of us engaged in activities contrary to prevailing opinion.”

CrossFit’s official Twitter account and YouTube are still operating as usual.

CrossFit Disappears From Instagram And Facebook – Here’s WHY?

Weather you prefer either gymnastics, high intensity interval training, olympic weightlifting, calisthenics, having an intense workout (CrossFit), will keep all our body parts moving, and in correlation to this we tend to sweat a lot. A LOT. And as woman, we want to keep and maintain great hygiene. One concern in working out is when our hair gets on our way on our face while doing the exercise; not only it is a hindrance, it can also cause skin damaged or breakouts to our skin especially when we are sweating all over, our oils mixed up with the dirt from the air and once our hair mixed into them, it just gets worse.

Being physically active, we also value our skin as much as any beauty and wellness enthusiasts do. We also care for the overall health and well-being of every CrossFitters. Investing in a good headband suited for you will geared you up completely and pulled up all your hair in your face, for a better performance throughout the workout and of course prevent having skin breakouts.

We gathered up this data based on what our readers and followers think is the best headband for all CrosFitters out there!

  • JUNK bands– Their tagline is “Headbands for every adventure”, which we do believe their claim can be trusted based on what our readers have said. They cater and offer different forms and styles of headband based on your preference and personal use. The best band in their collection is the wide ones, it covers up the entire front and does holds your hair into place. They have medical bands design, rainbow, MLB, florals and some statements bands. Junk bands!! The only ones I’ve found to stay in place. They are the best!”, One reader said.
Junk Headband
  • Sweaty bands– Each headband comprised of velvet backing which comfortably grips hair, while the back has an elastic portion that stretches enough to create a secure, flyaway free hold. Sound really good this headband brand, isn’t it? From the given material used, as someone who loves running and working out, I can picture out myself having a clean face, looking and feeling great while staying active for the entire activity. A comment from one Crossfitter in the group, she said “I like Sweaty Bands. They have a material like velvet on the underneath side so it doesn’t damage hair. They have super cute designs and stay put really well”.
Sweaty bands
  • Lululemon– This is like any regular headband but it does its work! It keeps your hair in place and it is good for people who has sensitive hair so you got an extra care using this band simultaneously; not bad at all. One reader of the group said, “My head is sensitive and my hair is wild! These are the best”.
Lululemon Headband
  • Bondi band From the word itself, you can literally see the influence of Bondi in their branding; as you can see the patterns of their designs are hydro-summer and abstract related. They do have different collections too that caters to what you need personally; you can even design your own! What an awesome idea! Their bands are made from their own exclusive technology, Bondi-Max. You can assure of no slip- no drip, as they are known for having a moisture wicking headband. A member and her friends said “My friends recommended Bondi bands and they seem to hold up nicely.”
Bondi Headband
  • RazzyRoo Headband Simple band with playful designs, stylish! I am loving it! this band is enough to pulled up your hair but I am afraid if you have baby hairs go for something wider as it will cover up and secured your entire head. This I can recommend for people who doesn’t have baby hairs and just want a smaller band, because some people are irritated for having a wider band, which seems like pressuring their head. So, this band is better for counted people only.
RazzyRoo Headband
  • MandaBees Headband– Wow! This brand offers a wider and thinner band, which seems like a thin clothing material. It covers up literally until the top of your forehead and due to its thin clothing, it is very light like an air, keeps your hair in placed and at the same time gives you comfort and ease. If you want to be active, looks good and at ease while you are running or doing some active activity, you better try this one!

I initially didn’t want to join CrossFit because I was continually told that it was dangerous and I heard from my previous gym that CrossFit can hurt you but hey ANYTHING you do in life can injure you if you don’t do it correctly, or haven’t taken into consideration your level of fitness, flexibility or health.

Prior to CrossFit I had never actually picked up a barbell.  I was always uncomfortable and felt unwelcome in the weight lifting area. I remember my first CrossFit class. We did Push Press and I was  PETRIFIED  but I’m glad I took the plunge out of my comfort zone and started lifting weights.

None of this is easy for sure. You have to work hard for it and earn it. Now the decision is yours. GET COMMITTED AND GET STARTED!

If you have any question about your form or how to perform a certain move, ASK ASK ASK. Your COACH is your best friend so let the Coaches Coach youThat is why I would encourage you to interview and consult with coaches to utilize them to help you with their education to generate true health and not just tell you what they think they want you to hear and also you don’t need to get fancy, just focus on proper form and do it often. 

(1) Don’t be intimidated – Everyone can do CrossFit and there are an infinite number of ways to scale WODs.  Don’t be scared to drop the weight! They’re made of rubber for a reason! I now know, it’s better to drop a weight on the floor than to try to catch it and hurt myself.

Also, don’t psyche yourself out. Form comes first. Keep the load light until you master the basics. I get scared loading on weight.  My method is to add 5lbs at a time because it helps me stay confident.

(2) Educate Yourself – Learn all of the exercises, know your performance numbers, read books, blogs and ask questions. Always be a student of the sport and keep an open mind. If you do, you’ll succeed. 

(3) Be patient – Some of the movements–especially the oly lifts–may challenge you more than others. Things like the snatch just take time. Even experienced crossfitters are always working on technique. Don’t give up because you are uncomfortable! That’s really the difference here, having a group of dedicated professionals working with you every step of the way to achieve what might seem impossible. With time and consistency, you WILL improve in every movement. Period. It took me forever to just squat decently and I am constantly working on it. We are all works in progress.

(4) Listen Up – Coaches are there to help. They don’t want to see anyone get hurt or develop bad habits. When they tell you to reduce weight, stop the workout, or change how you’re performing a movement, LISTEN and DO IT. They know best; that is why members pay them to be there. The coaches are there to provide a safe and motivating environment designed for your success.

Remember: Form is important. BE SMART!!!  If you get hurt because you’re not being smart, then its not Crossfit that did it….it’s you!  

Take that first step today by doing something outside your comfort zone and don’t forget to REWARD yourself.

Like many people, I was intimidated to enter the CrossFit box on my first day. 
This is ME 2014I would love to try CrossFit, but honestly, I think I’d die! 
5 Years later.. I’M HOOKED and I can DEADLIFT you, what’s your superpower?

But First, what is CrossFit?
CrossFit, is a high intensity workout and that means you will be challenged. Your coaches will push you.

You won’t be babied. (no.1 to expect in your CrossFit Class). There is a WOD (workout of the day) that you have to perform  each class is approximately 1 hour in length.

Second: You will find out how out of shape you really are.
Back to my goals. My CrossFit goals are to increase my upper body strength. I didn’t realize how weak I was! 

Third: Don’t Expect to be a Badass Overnight
It’s not about reaching the level everyone else is on, it’s about individually making progress and getting stronger. Every week, try to challenge yourself by increasing something — the weight, reps, sets, intensity.

Fourth: IT’S YOU vs YOU
When it comes time to throw down in a WOD, go at your own pace. Let the intensity find you. CrossFit really pushes your mental strengths and weaknesses. You can’t blame someone else because you couldn’t lift as much as you wanted, you have to blame yourself, and that is the hardest part. Remember, You’re Competing Against Yourself, Not Others 

Fifth: You are going to be sore
Every single muscle in your body ached, your body will be in pain in places you never thought existed, but that’s not a bad thing. So eat well, get your rest and ease into it.

Sixth: Don’t be afraid to scale down.
Whether you are an all-star athlete, or just a beginner at working out, each workout can be scaled for the appropriate difficulty.Not everyone can do the same weight.   If you can’t lift the RX weight then don’t. Don’t be too proud to scale down.

Seventh: CrossFit speaks their own language
CrossFit acronyms and workout names can easily confuse a newcomer. 
Here are few:
WOD – Workout of the Day. 
RX – Doing the WOD exactly as prescribed.
Box – CrossFit centers are not called gyms, they are called “boxes.” 

Eight: Sound of Barbell(Music to a CrossFitter’s ears.) 
I mean, WHO else here love the sound of barbells banging around the box?

Ninth: BE OPEN and DON’T HESITATE TO ASK QUESTIONS.
Don’t let yourself get upset about being told to change something you’re doing or you’ll never improve. Your coach is your best friend. So Ask. 

Tenth: You will form lasting friendships.
Sometimes all we need is to be surrounded by a group of others trying to do better. At CF everyday is a different challenge with coaches and fellow members motivating you through the workout.   You will instantly be welcomed into a community of people who have the same fitness goal as you .

And LASTLY,

HAVE FUN. 

Don’t forget that and Reward yourself.

“Oh, you are a part of CrossFit?”

How many of us have been asked this question in a negative way? I certainly have. There is some sort of negative vibe surrounding Crossfit, because a lot of people see it as an elite, invite only club. I think some people are even intimidated by it.

I remember one of my first WODs I walked in feeling like I was way out of place. All the people there seemed to know each other and I thought, “Oh great! How did I get myself into this?” I was nervous that I was seen as the outsider trying to break into the club.

Boy was I wrong. It didn’t take very long for one of the other ladies to come up and introduce herself. She was genuine in caring who I was, where I was from and was helpful in showing me where all the equipment was stored.

Crossfit might seem to outsiders like a “club” or “cult” but what they don’t see, is that we are a family. We seem super tight knit because we are. There is nothing better than knowing when you think you can’t go on, your Crossfit family will lift you up and encourage you through the tough times.

This crosses international lines too. I recently went to the States for four months and wanted to keep up my training. I googled Crossfit in my home town and found a box near my house. My first day walking in, I felt like the new kid in class once again. I was worried that I wouldn’t make any friends but once again I was wrong. Quickly the coaches and others in the WOD got to know me and soon I began to feel like one of the family again. Under the umbrella of Crossfit, we are all family. Doesn’t matter if you are at a box in Chiang Mai, Thailand or in Springfield, Missouri, USA, you will be treated like family.

One of the coolest things about being a part of the Crossfit family is that it extends beyond the gym. Some of my closest friends are my coaches and fellow athletes. We share life together outside of the gym and it makes our bond in the gym stronger. We rely on each other to pick each other up on hard days. We push each other to better ourselves and we cheer each other on when we hit our goals and PRs.

CrossFit Chiangmai

So for those of you who want to join Crossfit but are afraid you won’t fit in, fear no more. You will fit in. Crossfit is for everyone. It doesn’t matter where you are from, what you look like, how old you are, or if you have ever lifted a weight in your life, you belong!

We as Crossfitters open our arms to new athletes and we will be there for you just as much as people have been there for us all along our journey.

So Crossfit family, lets link arms with each other, welcome in the newbies and let’s get stronger together! Let’s face it. We can’t walk this journey alone. We need each other’s love and encouragement to become the best we can be.

“It’s not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters.” – Unknown

No matter what type of workout you’re doing — high-intensity cardio, slow paced yoga, or anything in between — working out with your hair in your face is always a nuisance, and a regular ponytail just doesn’t cut it.

Your hair can somehow miraculously wiggle their way out and into your face, and even if the hair survives the whole session without breaking free – the hair under your ponytail can turn into a rat’s nest. We know, ladies – that the struggle is real.

Here are six best (and cheap!) hair ties to try instead.

  1. Blax CLEAR Hair Elastics – Don’t be fooled by their appearance because these are notoriously strong and durable – and be used over and over again! They work wonders in keeping your hair in place and it doesn’t snag your hair. Quoting from one CrossFitter – “Blax are my favorite. They stay in place, don’t break hair, and you can get clear ones. I have to order them on amazon now. I have long, fine hair.
  • TecUnite – These no metal hair elastics are especially perfect for thick hair gals! They are soft and stretchy, with no metal that can hold your hair without any damage, easy to put on and remove without tangle, snag or pull. “These…I have super thick hair and these are the only kind of bands that work” –a CrossFit member commented.
  • Goody – Formerly known as Goody Stayput, this hair ties definitely lives up to its name as the ties are made of slide-proof elastics with rubber tread weaved through the elastic for superior staying power.
  • Kitsch Spiral Hair Ties – There are so many things to rave about these pretty, durable, hygienic, small and mighty hair ties. It adds a fun pop of color to your top knot and it stretch easily and generously to hold up all of your hair in a ponytail, or braid. With its unique design, it is said that it helps prevent annoying ponytail bumps and hair headaches too! One CrossFitter said “I have long, thin, fine hair, and these work wonders!! I’ve always had an issue with the normal pony tail holders actually holding my hair up (they would always slip or fall out during a workout and I would have to either deal with it or try to put it back up), but these “phone cords” as my husband calls them, works awesome at keeping my hair up during workouts!
  • Goody Ouchless – As the name depicts, these hair ties will not snag or pull hair while it holds your hair securely in place. “Yes. These!!!! 100% best hair tie I’ve ever used.” – commented by one CrossFitter.
  • Conair – Perfect for days when you want to add some sass into your workout outfit as it comes in a variety colors, promises snag free and causes no damage to your hair. One CrossFitter said – “I have super thick hair and these are the only kind of bands that work.

Meet Kristi, a sporty scientist who inspires people to do things that they love rather than sit and wait. Kristi once been insecure and tried to compare herself with everybody until she realized that her only competitor was herself. Let’s see how this scientist does her CrossFit and how she continue to walk through the door!

Name: Kristi L Pellegrini
Affiliate Box: Solidarity CrossFit

Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, job, hobbies, interests, etc.).

I’m a scientist and a dog mom. I’m currently in a long distance relationship (my boyfriend was my WOD partner when we lived in the same place), so it’s not uncommon for me to find myself in the car on the weekends.

CrossFit Athlete Kristi Pellegrini

When did you start doing CrossFit?

I started late 2016 / early 2017.

What were you doing before CrossFit and how were you introduced to CrossFit?

The BCFE (before CrossFit era) of my life was sports in grade school and early high school (soccer, volleyball, basketball, track, cross country), which gave way to marching band (late high school through all of undergrad). After undergrad, I would “run” and sometimes, do yoga.

How has your approach to CrossFit changed since first starting?

Starting out, I was constantly comparing myself to everyone else in the gym and I was straight up frustrated ALL THE TIME. Now, it’s me versus me. Am I doing better than I was doing previously? Heck yeah. That’s growth. 

Favorite WOD or movement?

Snatch is my favorite! 

Least favorite WOD or movement?

Wall balls or burpees are my least favorite.

What types of changes have you seen (mentally, physically, and/or lifestyle) since starting CrossFit?

I’ve created families at the boxes (three now) that I’ve had as home boxes, and this has kept me motivated and definitely given me support on my worst days. I also found my nutrition coach through CrossFit, and that has caused physical, mental, and also lifestyle changes. My fitness journey started with CrossFit, but it doesn’t end there. CrossFit has taught me that I can absolutely do hard things. It’s given me a different measure of growth and progress than I am accustomed to – looking at my own personal growth and not being so concerned about how I rate with everyone else in the box. Where else can you find a community of people who are cheering you on – even when you’re the last to finish, or you’re lifting 100 lbs less than them. I’ve tried to let this spill over into all other areas of my life.

Kristi Pellegrini lifting heavy weights

What helps you get the most out of your CrossFit Workouts? What motivates/inspires you?

I feel like 90% of the motivation I need for CrossFit is the motivation to walk through the door. I’ve found myself a tight community of people who are helping me with that accountability. They are checking in and asking me about my workouts. They are encouraging me to get my butt through the door. And when my butt is in the box, they are cheering hard for me to get it done. I’ve taken their cues, and I’ve been internalizing them. But ultimately, my motivation comes from the community. And I’m inspired by the PRs I see there – whether people think it’s one worthy of celebrating or not (it’s ALWAYS worth celebrating).

My CrossFit journey : Kristi Pellegrini

What’s your CrossFit goal for 2019?

An unassisted pull up.

What would you say to someone starting CrossFit for the first time?

Walk through the door. Now. Don’t wait until you lose a certain amount of weight. Or until you’re “more fit.” Just start. Right now.

What’s your PR /pump up song?

Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift
