Praxis... Praxis... Praxis or Praxis makes Perfect

Praxis.... What the hell is Praxis?

Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realised. "Praxis" may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas. 

Hmmmm.... Process and Practice for the "Persistent Pursuit of Perfection".

Kinda like the alliteration.... and the concept.

Bottom line is that Praxis is the old ZiaCrossFit under a new name...... Praxis.

So here's the new website....

New name, New location.... Same staff pretty much....

 BJ Monger is the head honcho and he's got the nicest, smilingest fellow helping him....Gary Dinh.

There's some other great coaches from the old place too like Mark and Crow.

Anyway, here I am on a beautiful Friday and I decided to hit the noon workout at Praxis.

Packed the Ortlieb pannier with my gym fixings and hopped on the Red Mule and motored, I mean pedaled past the plaza and up Agua Fria about 5-1/2 miles to....

Gotta tell you.... being in Santa Fe in this beautiful weather riding my bike to a workout.....

Well, it makes me feel....

So here's the layout.... Pretty much the same stuff as the old place.

And a typical CrossFit workout but I like how BJ and his crew (I think this workout was done by Mark) tailors these workouts to minimize the chance of injury.

It's a helluva lot easier on your knees and Achilles heel stepping up and down on a box with weights in your hands than it is jumping up on it and down off it.

You work the same muscles without the risk of dynamic injury.

I did OK on the close grip bench press but sucked on the WOD.

Was left completely stripped of air.... Geez it took me like 5 minutes to get my breath.

Oh yeah.... we are doing this at 7200' not sea level....Big Difference!!

Got home and knocked out a beautiful tasty and protein filled restorative meal...

TJ's jalapeno chicken / turkey sausage on cast iron skillet grilled olive-tomato focaccia bread slices smeared with honey mustard and spicy hummus topped with grilled red bell pepper and tomato with a side of uncured pastrami with smoked gouda cuddled up next to fresh basil, kalamata olives, sweet onion and jalapeno pepper and washed down with a Fresca - Cabernet mix with fresh lime.

Let me tell you something..... You eat that meal and you will not only go through the 7th level of Food Heaven but you will feel great and feel great about yourself....

And whether we want to admit it or not..... Self-Esteem is the most important part of who we are!


That oughta be on a Healthy Eating Magazine cover!

So here's the deal.... Praxis is in business and having classes but they're having this huge Grand Opening on.....

Well - you can see for yourself!

If you haven't tried a CrossFit style workout, come check this place out.

You can't ask for a better philosophy, program and people....

And that's important when you're in the...

Persistent Pursuit of Perfection....

Or you just wanna get in shape with the most efficient exercise program run by people who know how to get people in shape and keep them from getting injured doing it.

Check out Praxis - - and talk to BJ or Gary or one of the other trainers and see what it's all about.

You'll be glad you did!
