002 Duchesse and the Jillian Michaels Controversy

Welcome back! For the second show we talked about a personal favorite beer of Gene’s. This beer comes from Belgium and it’s called the Duchesse de Bourgogne and its by Brouwerij Verhaeghe. This Flemish sour ale has a strong red colour with a very tame bite at the end. The guys go on to build their rating system and what factors into it. The inaugural rating started very high at a staggering 9.0. Shout out to Whole Foods for the hook up!

After a few sips the guys talk about The Open and Crossfit specifically. They mention what the last workout was and why in the world it was worth doing. Gene and Chaz discuss why its so important to start competing with yourself rather than the person next to you. Next, they speak on the current Jillian Michaels controversy regarding her critique of Crossfit to which differing views are made on why she said what she said. After a healthy debate, the guys decide to bring it back saying fitness experts in all different modalities should be having conversations rather than being critical of each other.

Shout out to Paul Bunyan Fitness as always for bring a gracious host. Thanks to SL of Repeat Offenders for the fire intro. Thanks for Whole Foods for the beer!
