The judging will be strict, the first individual and team event has been announced, the competitors are ready–are you?

We'll have a big screen projector set-up to live stream the CrossFit Games all this weekend before and after classes, starting Friday morning.  If you want to watch at home, check out the Games livestream link here.  Otherwise, join us at Verve as we cheer on Jim, Cherie, and Matt through their greatest moments this year! 

One protein that we do not utilize as much is pork.  Pork, "the other white meat" is a great complete protein that will keep you full. Combine the pork with some spices and almond meal and BOOM!!  Good old fashion southern fry.  

Pork chop


16oz of pork chops  16P
3Tbs of olive oil  9F
1/8cup of almond meal  7F 
2tsp of cayenne pepper
1tsp of dry mustard
1tsp of pepper

Combine the oil and spices togther.  Coat the pork chops with the almond meal.  Place the pork chops in the pan and cook both sides for 7 to 8 minutes.  Cut the pork chops into 4oz portions for 4P, 4F.  Add a bag of "steamfresh" veggies, 2cups equals 2C. 


  1. James (O.G.) :

    Oh man. Friday may be a “work from Verve” day….

  2. I so need to be “sick” tomorrow…

  3. Cherie :

    Swim test -check
    Dangers include, sting rays, hyperdermic needles and 50 other people starting at the same time.
    Run is soft soft sand .
    What do you guys think? Shoes or no shoes?

  4. Maria :

    You neglected to mention great white sharks! But the hyperdermic needles are a hell of a lot scarier! No worries though…if I could survive a swim in Lake Ponchatrain you will kick major butt out there!!

  5. Luke :

    Cherie – I say no shoes. If the event is first thing in the morning, the sand won’t be burning your feet. I wouldn’t wanna spend time trying to put shoes on wet feet after a swim. Just me though.

  6. Jake :

    No shoes.. And kick hard!!! That will keep the people away. OR be out front better than the middle. How big are the waves???

  7. However, it can never be so huge. As for the accuracy of the graph, suffice to say..
    yes. it is good.this is supposed to be humorous, not accurate, you pedantic weirdos. of course no one has any idea how many harpsichords were sold.
