ARE YOU A MFA?

WHAT IS A MIXED FITNESS ARTIST? WE BELIEVE A MIXED FITNESS ARTIST IS AN INDIVIDUAL THAT LOOKS TO ALL THINGS FITNESS TO INCORPORATE INTO THEIR TRAINING. ONE WOULD WORK OLYMPIC LIFTS, YOGA, GYMNASTICS, TRADITIONAL WEIGHT LIFTING, SPORTS, RUNNING, CYCLING, SWIMMING, HIKING, AND ALL OTHER RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES THAT PROMOTE AN ACTIVE AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.  THIS BALANCED APPROACH WILL HAVE ONE STRONG PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY AS WELL AS FLEXIBLE AND COORDINATED. MIXED FITNESS ARTISTS KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF RECOVERY AS WELL AND DIET AND REST ARE WORKED IN WITH EQUAL IMPORTANCE. OVERALL, MIXED FITNESS ARTISTS ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING AND EVOLVING AS THEY WORK TOWARDS A HEALTH ORIENTATED AND WELL ADAPTED LIFESTYLE THAT IS A SOLID RECIPE FOR LONGEVITY. PLEASE COMMENT BELOW YOUR THOUGHTS OF WHAT MAKES YOU A MIXED FITNESS ARTIST? OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU WISH TO COMMENT ON.

'Lesson five: Assume voluntary discomfort. This is one of the central mindsets that may have the biggest impact in your daily life. Actively seek to make life difficult for yourself. Dissatisfaction in our daily lives is the result of a certain level of entitlement. We just expect things to always run smoothly. According to the stoic philosophy, just because you can afford yourself a nice meal every single day, doesn’t mean you should do so. It builds perseverance and grit, but more importantly it demolishes the sense of entitlement that chips away at your daily happiness. So by experiencing discomfort, you will walk away stronger by realizing that you experienced what you dreaded and suffered no ill effects from it."

A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT M.F.A.
THE MIXED FITNESS ARTIST BEGAN AROUND JANUARY OF 2008. JOSEPH FORSETH DESHAIS WAS IN HIS SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL AND WAS LOOKING FOR AN EDGE IN THE HOPES OF QUALIFYING FOR THE STATE WRESTLING TOURNAMENT, IT WAS AT THIS POINT THAT JOEL FORSETH AND JOSEPH BEGAN TO TRAIN WITH A PURPOSE. JOEY ACCOMPLISHED HIS GOALS AND THE MIXED FITNESS ARTIST METHOD OF TRAINING BEGAN. IN THE SUMMER OF 2008 HALL OF FAMER RON DEMAAGD BEGAN AND THE WORKOUTS CONTINUED TO ADVANCE TO ANOTHER LEVEL. IT HAS BEEN A CONSTANT EVOLUTION. MELISSA FORSETH IN THE SPRING OF 2011 ENTERING THE CROSSFIT GAMES ADDED MAJOR INSIGHT INTO TRAINING METHODS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME THE JOINING OF KEVIN PENLAND TO OUR GROUP ADDED HUGE GAINS IN THE M.F.A. STRENGTH AND OLYMPIC LIFT ASPECTS. FITNESS MODEL MEGAN CANAVAN CONTRIBUTED THE IMPORTANCE OF PERFECT FORM. SUMMER OF 2012 HAD A NEW GENERATION WITH RACHEL DEMAAGD AND CAROLINE FORSETH ON BOARD AS WELL AS THE SPIN CLASS NOW TURNED MIXED FITNESS ARTIST GROUP OF JOHN STUFKOSKY, KELLY HUFFORD, AND TUCKER BIRCH(AKA CLARK KENT). 2012 IS WHEN WE SWITCHED GYMS AND GOT OUR VERY OWN MFA AREA. DYLAN MEYERS WAS ONE OF FIRST NEWBIES AND PERFORMED WITH INTENSITY BEFORE HEADING OFF FOR CAREER ADVANCEMENT. 2013 WE HAD CORY RHOADES INVOLVE STRIKING TO MANY MFA GAME ALONG WITH REGULAR ATTENDANCE FROM THE GIRLS WHO PRIOR WERE ALWAYS IN THE BACKROOM STARING AT THEIR WORKOUT ON PAPER, MICHELLE DOLL AND JULIE BURKE AND LATER MICHELLE'S HUSBAND MIKE DOLL ALONG WITH SEASON CAMEOS FROM THE ATHLETIC PHENOM CAMERON KEATING, ALONG WITH HIS HALL OF FAMER DAD ERIC KEATING. THE EVER ENTHUSIASTIC FITTEST CHEF WE KNOW CHE STEDMAN AND HIS WIFE TANYA STEDMAN WERE A GREAT ADDITION ALONG WITH KATELYN BEYMER WHO HAD NO END TO HER CARDIO. 2014-2015 WE SAW SOME INCREDIBLE IMPROVEMENTS FROM AARON KRZYWIKI, NICK HANKINS, AND ERIC WALLACE AS THEY TRANSFORMED OR REGAINED THEIR FITNESS LEVELS AND TOK MFA MOST IMPROVED TITLES. HEALOHANI MONTGOMERY BROUGHT ANOTHER LEVEL CHANGE FOR US WITH HER PRESENCE AND EXAMPLES. CHRISTY FUTRELL MAKES APPEARANCES WHEN SHE CAN WITH BUSY SCHEDULE. 2016 HAD COLLEEN DEMAAGD BEGINNING HER TRANSFORMATION INTO HIGH SCHOOL STANDOUT ATHLETE AND SPEAKING OF ALL STAR ATHLETES, ONE OF THE TOP WRESTLERS FROM OUR AREA AUSTIN LOBSINGER BEGAN MAKING MFA PART OF HIS TRAINING AS HE TRANSITIONED FROM ATHLETICS INTO LAW ENFORCEMENT. 2017 SOCCER STANDOUT AND SUPER ATHLETIC DANIEL FORSETH-DENDAS PASSED EVERY CHALLENGE, ADYN AND RYAN FUTRELL BEGAN THEIR MFA JOURNEY FOR SUMMER TRAINING, ALEX PETERSON SHOWED AND IMPROVED CARDIO AND ENDURANCE TREMENDOUSLY AND HE  INTRODUCED ALL AROUND COOL CHICK KATELYN GOFF TO US AS WELL. NICK VISCONTI REPRESENTING THE CITY OF REDDING WITH SECOND LONGEST CITY OF REDDING ATTENDANCE AS HE BATTLES.  NEXT WEEK WE WELCOME CALEB MCGREGOR. WE RECOGNIZE LORI FORSETH FOR HER CAMEOS DURING BUSY SCHEDULE, NICOLE FORSETH FOR HER OFF SITE PARTICIPATION, TUFF FOR HITING OUR WODS EVERY SO OFTEN, SUZANNE BIRCH AKA MOTB, JEFF, CAMERON AND PEYTON, HEATHER GUERRERO WONG, DAVID GUERRERO WONG, MADDI DODDS, SAMANTHA, SHELBY, KELLY KEITH,  MATT VANERT, CT, KRIS KUBISCH, WES SWAFFORD, ISAAC ARCHIBALD, STEVE, SHELLY, JOHAN, PETE, JAMES, JENNY, ALLEN, KAREN, RANDY, KIM, JEANNE, KYLE, SARAH, SARA, HEATHER, AARON, JUSTIN, FELLA FROM RB RODEO, JIM, VALLANA, MARIA, EVAN, CHRIS, JEREMIAH, GERRY, JADYN, CHLOE, BRYAN, JOSHUA, RANDY AND ROBIN.
