    Episode 11 - Dr. Ada Jauregui Saves

    In this episode of the CrossFit Oakland Podcast, Mike, Ben, and Robyn interview a longtime friend of CFO, Dr. Ada Jauregui, DPT (she also answers to Dr. Ada or Dr. J)!

    Many of you might remember Ada from her days treating patients in the office at CFO (Emeryville) or perhaps you have been treated by her for an injury or other physical issue.  If so, you will be familiar with the hashtag #dradasaves.  Dr. Ada does indeed save us by getting to the root of injury or movement dysfunction and getting us back to the activities we love.

    Podcast topics include:


    Ada's professional journey and how it intersects with CFO
    Her passion for collaborating with other experts
    The number one thing to consider when starting and succeeding at a strength & conditioning program like CrossFit
    What movements to focus on while we are at home under quarantine.  What about our friends and family who don't Crossfit?
    Ada asks us questions

    Many thanks to Ada for sitting down with us and sharing her knowledge.  You can read more about Ada or book an appointment here.

    Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

    Episode 10: Resilience

    In this episode, Mike and Ben & Robyn discuss how we build resilience in our bodies with exercise and other lifestyle choices as well as in our minds, as we navigate uncertainty, anxiety and a strange new normal.  They give specific examples from their own lives and even from the history of CrossFit Oakland.

    You are encouraged to listen, hopefully learn a bit and continue building your own resilience as a buffer to all that is going on around you, so that you will be ready for anything that comes your way and to step into the future when this too shall pass.

    Episode 9 - Staying Fit and Healthy With At Home Workouts

    In this episode, Mike and Ben break down how to maintain your fitness with at-home workouts

    They begin by discussing the ultimate "Goal" and how for most of us that goal has not changed even with sheltering in place. 

    So even with being forced outside the gym, WE can still work towards any goal whether we want to lose weight, build muscle or just lift heavy! 

    Next, Mike and Ben break down all of the benefits to why this shift in programming is going to help all of us. 


    Shifting from the normal training patterns creates adaption through new stimulus 
    The renewed focus on moving better and mastering the basics
    Odd objects and how they create new challenges and new muscles and strengths.
    Recovery a bigger focus and goal
    Advantages to be able to get outside! 

    Mike and Ben cover a lot in this short episode and they really hope to convey their concern for you while we shelter in place.
