Death to Dadbod: Third Time’s No Charm

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

I Googled, “Origin of third time’s a charm.” I needed to find the name of my enemy. Has this ever been true? Has anyone in the history of history ever ever everrrrrr found good fortune on the third attempt? I searched that too. Google’s answer, “Nah, bro.” This workout is fun. So fun that I did it three times in the last two weeks. Apparently, Pistols are my new favorite stimulus. I’m like Yosemite Sam pow-powing in the air like …

How to See Notifications in Beyond the Whiteboard

Pat Barber BTWB

Did you come to Outsider the Box to find your people and be part of a community? This one’s for you.

Death to Dadbod: Sibling Rivalry

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

They say children are the future. If that’s the case – then you’re all welcome. I’m blessed with 3 amazing children who are going to make the world a better place. They’re 3 of the most loving, kind hearted little humans I’ve ever met. Ahem, I also have a 9-week-old baby boy, but the jury is still out on him. He’s the first of the 4 to actually have my DNA, so he’s got an uphill climb. He’s already mastered …

Death to Dadbod: Black Licorice

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

You know the old saying, “Seven days of rest, makes one weak?” No? That’s not how it goes? Well today’s workout says otherwise. One round of 30 burpees and I thought I was drooling Nyquil. Not the Berry kind, either. I haven’t taken the medicine in 7 days, yet I could taste the funky sweetness of black licorice. Sidebar: Licorice, weird word. Lickerish. Liquorisch. Licorysh. Licorice? No. As a writer, I think words matter. So does spelling. Some words make …

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

The house is quiet. Almost too quiet. Joanie (my wife) is off to run errands and pick up the twin from dance practice. She’s probably going to come back with a new kitten, if history is any inclination. We used to have 3 kids and 3 cats. Now we have 4 kids… how’s your math? She trusted me home alone with our newborn. This isn’t me being the “dad who babysits.” But she’s really going out on a limb to …

When the Excuses Keep Winning

Taz Barber Brain Gainz, No Filter Fitness

In my teens and twenties, my life was all about Sport and Fitness. I played multiple sports. Was a CrossFit Games competitor. Owned an affiliate. Coached clients. And coached coaches, too. My friends were the type of CrossFitters who were breaking barriers (and the internet) like every other week. It was a lot to live up to. Sorta like how a doctor feels as if they can never be sick because that would reflect poorly on their knowledge or skill, …
