Yeah, James hit the mark. Publicly giving yourself a critique shows that you are very thoughtful of your audience. Image matters in this sphere, sure, but human nature and all these qualities certainly reach out more. Keep your posts coming and stay true to yourself!

I don't care if your offensive, just keeping posting recipes, Even the kids loved your Chicken thigh dish

Freddy, Don't stop calling out the Kool-Aid drinking cult! I'm on the East Coast and go here and to Football because you and John keep it real. I grew tired of reading the main site because it just got out of control. Keep it up brother!

Freddy, I do think you went on a negative spiral this week and it culminated in a post that got a bit to personal. However I think it would have been a good post had you not gotten personal.

For me One World is like a sanctuary from all the bullshit, negativity and politics in the real world. I always leave feeling better than when I walked in. That atmostphere filters down from the top through the owners and the trainers. I would hate for that to change.

I am glad you checked yourself because you are influential - not just at One World but crossfit in general.


Thanks for keeping it REALER. There are other gyms where patrons turn their EGO ON when they come in the door and those are gyms that I don't think any of us want to be part of!

BTW - WE ARE O-LIFTING THIS SATURDAY AT 10:00 A.M. If you have taken one of my sessions or clinics, you are welcomed to join us. $20 drop in fee.

I have been a long time follower of your blog and find it one of the more refreshing and original ones out there. Echoing others I must I have also turned a lot of people on your site and everyone walks away a big fan. I am confident that words of praise are not the aim of posts such as today's, however, they will always be a consequence of honest introspection and humility. Keep up the good work, your posts truly make our day.

Freddy. I love your blog. Keep it up.

Freddy - you say it as you see it - thats why so many people love your blog. You have the balls to say what we are all thinking! No need to check your ego at the door!

good post freddie. the essence of a real man is not his ability to crossfit well. it is his ability to self evaluate [accurately] and humble himself. this post proves that you're a real man and a good leader.

If you’re sincere in your desire to “check your ego at the door,” then time will be your judge. I wish you well, your job is not an easy one, and being in love again often leads a man on a good path. Peace be with you.

Dude, I read this blog more than the NY Times and more than the daily newspaper I write for. I would freak out without it. With diversified media, and the option for everyone to have their own voices via social networking and blogging, people can choose to read and write what they want. They can specialize. They can ignore the newspaper — the old source of daily info — for the rest of their lives. That's why this blog is so awesome. It's always a great read. Keep being yourself, Freddy -- with all that it includes. That's why ppl come here. If readers don't like it, whoa -- hold on -- they can CHOOSE to go elsewhere. I vote you take my job as a reporter. I would love to read your stuff.
PS. Tell Chyna I'm sending her obscure Asian candy care package soon. Look for it.

Actually Gar, I thought about turning the comments off, but I didn't want anyone who wanted to call me an asshole or say that I was full of shit to not have the opportunity to post and then call foul. All good. I'm sincere, I use my name when I make posts or comments. If it will make you feel better I'll delete all the comments but yours and mine and then turn the comments off. All the positive comments are what got me thinking to highly of myself in the first place.I won't make that mistake again.

This post is kind of like the fat girl that goes around telling everyone what a loser she is so everyone will say something positive.

freddy your one world posts are always a good read. i'm from melbourne australia and check your site everyday because it is real, entertaining, interesting and helpful. keep it up bro.

You, sir, are a man of integrity.

Thx Freddy!

Freddy and Chyna...totally unrelated comment to your post, but as Chyna kind of asked about suggestions on programming I have this sneaking suspicion that Toes to Rings are going to be in the Games this year. As Freddy said you are programming for his competing in the Masters and we are all following that as well (totally cool btw!!)--might be worth throwing some of thos in a workout? (Just from the peanut gallery idea...)

I've been doing Crossfit for about a year and a half. When I first started I was reading everything I could about CF and was constantly checking out different affiliate sites. I would go through phases with certain sites and read them on a daily basis for a few weeks. However, I always found myself coming back to the One World site and still check it out everyday. The daily One World post is always a topic of discussion at our gym each night. You've got plenty of fans out here on the East Coast. Keep up the good work!

It will be up later Joe. I have it written down at home.....

Freddy no Power Hour tomorrow?

check ego at door = don't lie about how many reps you have completed.

Your posts are the reason your site is on my favorites tab. Sorry Freddy somethings you say may be rude and crass to some but to many of us is absolute reality. Many of us have what you say at the tip of our tongues but we can't eloquently state it as well as you.

In fact, I reference your site to many. Not only for the workouts but because fortunately for many of us your site has personality. Thank GOD for that.

Not sure why exactly you need to check your ego... When you start posting your PR's, talking how elite you are, and include pictures of only yourself then we may have to say you have a "problem"! Please don't change and keep it real!

Freddy, it's posts like this one that earn you mad respect from EVERYONE. I'm so fortunate to be part of this community!
