Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

Today, my wife and I completed the OTB Minimalist version of the Filthy Fifty. It’s the CrossFit equivalent of a murder by 10,000 paper cuts.

Let’s Talk About Mondays

Danial Hooper Brain Gainz, No Filter Fitness

So yeah… Mondays will suck the life out of you. It’s almost in our DNA to complain and grog and whine our way through the first morning of the work week. We have a deeply abusive relationship with Mondays.  Every single time that alarm clock goes off, there’s a piece of us shrieking out a death call. “It feels like a Monday” is a way to describe an awful day that won’t end. “Case of the Mondays” is used when …

Danial Hooper No Filter Fitness

So yeah… I know I’m jumping the gun by talking about New Year’s Resolutions this early. But we’re almost to Christmas, and you know what that means… Money has run out. Weight has been gained. Habits have been baddened. Destruction. Everywhere. So many good things have been undone because we can’t say no and eggnog only tastes good when it’s half booze. I freakin’ love it, too. Send me all the holiday cheer! And then! As soon as Christmas ends, …
