Strength Outside the Box, hosted by Amy Hester and Lauren Corl, is all about two girls getting to the heart of how a community of CrossFit athletes is changing each other's lives one WOD at a time, while digging deep to understand how the lessons learned within the gym can provide strength for obstacles outside the box.

Grab a cup of coffee and get ready to make two new gym besties as they chat with members of their own gym, neighboring gyms, and beyond. With each interview comes more laughter and a true sense of community, family, and what it means to have strength outside the box.

    RePete - A PSA with Pete Mancuso

    This week, Lauren is flying solo and interviewing Peter Mancuso, an incredible athlete and major dose of positivity.  They talk all things CrossFit community, Pete's awe-inspiring CrossFit and weight-loss journey, and what it has done for him outside the gym.  This is a MUST-LISTEN for all athletes, new or seasoned.  Pete has the kind of love for CrossFit that is as contagious as his positive, outgoing personality!

    You guys!!! WE ARE BAAACKKK!!! Tune in to hear us catching up in real time! We chat about all that we have been up to over the past 6 months or so and what we have on our horizons.

But don't worry, we haven't changed all that much since the last time we recorded, we still find plenty of nonsense to giggle over!

    Street Parking with Miranda Alcaraz

    Street Parking with Miranda Alcaraz

    This week we are chatting with the one and only Miranda Alcarez - the original CrossFit "It Girl" and owner of Street Parking with her husband Julian (P.S. We are SO sorry we pronounced his name wrong in the beginning of the episode!). We discuss how she got her start at CrossFit HQ all those years ago and what that experience was like. Then we talk about the origin of Street Parking and pick her brain on the importance of finding personal motivators for accountability, how to find intensity when you are all alone, when to give yourself the grace to scale back the intensity, and then she gives us some advice on fitness during pregnancy.
