CrossFit this, CrossFit that…

I’m really sorry that I keep talking about CrossFit all the time. But it’s the main thing I do besides work and being a husband, a dad and having a family life.

Double-Unders in Porto val Travaglia, Summer of 2014

This (Christmas-) week is a so-called benchmark week and I did the baseline workout. I just don’t seem to progress at all, it’s a bit frustrating.

500 meter row, 40 air squats, 30 sit ups, 20 push ups, 10 pull ups.

Today it took me 4 minutes and 57 seconds, that’s 13 seconds slower then two months ago. Maybe, because I’m having a cold, I don’t know.

Anyway, I wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! If you want to make great friends, get or stay fit in 2015 (no matter what your current condition is), try CrossFit for yourself! Go to and find a local CrossFit Box.

CrossFit transforms me

#empty #tired #happy #CrossFit

It’s been a while since my last post, I’ve been busy working: working at Samsung Switzerland and working out at CrossFit Basel. Both is a lot of fun and both is very demanding and satisfying.

If you have been hanging around in gyms for the last couple of years without any satisfying results, then CrossFit is for you. Check out for a box in your neighbourhood.

Have fun!

CrossFit Games Leaderboards

If you want to check out how the Swiss CrossFitters, CrossFit Basel and it’s members are doing, check out those leaderboards.

We’re in the 3rd Week now and the workout that worked best for me until now was 13.1
I hope there’s a workout coming up with Muscle Ups so I would have a good reason to finally learn them.

I have recently installed CyanogenMod on two of my smartphones – and I’m really happy so far. My Note 2 is as fast as never before.

The installation process is really simple: get the installer from Google Play and follow the instructions.

But pay attention: by installing that ROM, you automatically void your warranty.

PS: you need a PC and a USB cable to get the job done

Open Air Basel 2013


I actually just wanted to check out the mini-ramp but since it was behind the fence, I had to pull out my press card in order to get in.

Well, there was a concert going on,  good vibes. Electronic music. But still,  I was here for another reason.


And there it was… the mini-ramp. Awesome. Check it out if you can @Kaserne Basel this weekend!


Night session…
