Cue CrossFit Seattle: Grand Opening 2017 Pioneer Square Fat Loss Workout

Cue CrossFit opens new CrossFit location by Century Link field in Seattle.

If you live or work in Pioneer Square, near Sodo, or the International District in Seattle, you now have a new option for high intensity workouts. Cue CrossFit just opened and of course Dre Fitness had to be there since we just love events that are fitness related.


Cue CrossFit Seattle Grand Opening which is by CenturyLink field.

You can meet a lot of good people and strengthen friendships with existing people.

I love going to fitness events because I get to hang out — doing healthy activities — with friends, professional contacts, and with people I’ve never met before.

Fitness is about community.

When it comes down to it, as long as the workout is high enough intensity and safe, it really doesn’t matter what style of workout it is. Ultimately, group fitness gyms like CrossFit, Orangetheory, or growing gyms like Accelerate Seattle are all about community. We workout together, sweat together, and through the process, we become stronger together.

Cue CrossFit Seattle WOD with my friends Brandon H., Brandon S, Katie, and more. Goblet Kettlebell Squats.

You can come up with new exercises or new ways to program an exercise, but ultimately if you’re not squatting, you’re just not allotting your time well. All good fitness programs will prescribe squats for you. All good fitness programs will work your muscles with exercises that promote strength and muscular balance. All good fitness programs will be prescribed by legitimate, motivational coaches.

Building community in Seattle.

People often ask me if I will ever make the leap to be the owner of my own gym. While I respect those who take the risk to open their own gyms, at this point I am going for the blogger, vlogger, and influencer route. I realize that there is only one of me and that I can produce content that is useful to many people as long as I stay dedicated and authentic to myself and my followers.


I teased Brandon S. during the video only because I have great respect for his work!

Fitness is about more than a brand name.

Even though competition can be ruthless in the fitness industry, it is still an industry that is highly rewarding. I have more and more friends who are passionate about fitness but are stuck in office jobs that they simply have no love for. For that reason, I feel blessed to be part of a fitness lifestyle in which I can fully support myself here in Seattle and Capitol Hill to be specific.


Fitness is love, need I say more?

Train hard, and use nutrition to recover your body.

Regardless of the workout, it’s all about nutrition and sleep in order to promote recovery. Excuse my language, but any jackass can go and do a hard workout. However, the person who eats wild Alaskan salmon with kale and avocado will have FARRRR superior results than the person who goes and drinks their gains away with alcohol and Dick’s burgers. It’s been my experience that people who eat Dick’s end up smelling like Dick’s too.


Darsenio can jump this high. Thanks to nutrition!

Antioxidants, protein, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, fiber, probiotics, and other nutrients are 100% crucial to all fitness, athletic, bodybuilding, and health related goals. If you care for yourself, eat your damn vegetables!

Thanks for reading. Even though we’re in the early process of launching our YouTube, I guarantee we will have growth. I have too much passion for the fitness and too many friends who are willing to help out that it will be impossible to fail. All we have to do is stay consistent and get the message out there.


It’s all about who you know, anyway.

How can I give you value? Reach out to me for inquiries, comments, or suggestions. Once again, thank you so much for reading!

Branched-Chain Aminos as a STAPLE Fitness Supplement

Staying fit isn’t hard with the right tools.

There are tablets that are proven to…

  1. Give you energy
  2. Assist leanness
  3. Promote optimal levels of balance in body

Lean with ease

And even more benefits…

  • Decrease muscle soreness
  • Improve endurance, especially in high temperature situations
  • Increased strength gains
  • and, a…strong Healthy YOU!

They ARE… Branched Chain Amino Acids

Besides being one of the most safe and dependable fitness supplement, Branced Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s for short) are three essential amino acids found in muscle. Most of us acquire these amino acids through dietary sources of protein such as chicken or tofu, yet supplementation of BCAA’s in the proper ratio leads to all of the benefits listed above.

There are 22 standard amino acids found in protein. BCAA’s are like the Three Amigos: each amino acid has a unique relationship and function to the others.

Aminos are just like Amigos, except much more elemental

The Three Aminos:




Essentially, BCAA’s stimulate the metabolic pathway, which results in net protein growth.

How, When, Where, and WHY?

This is how to take BCAA’s…

  1. Anytime of the day, to give you energy and maintain strength through muscle loss prevention.
  2. Prior to physical activities for endurance, sustainability, and performance. (Before a hike, a run, sports, or even a long night of dancing!)
  3. Just before a meal. Your meal will become even more anabolic, which means you can burn fat easier!
  4. DURING intense physical activity. Aside from the benefits above, weightlifters were found to have increased testosterone levels after the workout, as opposed to DECREASED testosterone levels that most people unknowingly experience.
  5. Who am I kidding? You can take BCAAS ANYTIME ANYWHERE!

My own personal use:

  • BCAA’s before and after workouts
  • I bring along a bottle in my bag for when I’m mobile. I would use BCAAs instead of McDonalds anyday. But, usually it’s best when I’m staying in someone elses place for the night.
  • At work during breaks.

If you are interested in any of the above benefits that I experience on a daily basis, go try a bottle. Right now, I’m using…

For some its about looks, for me its about strength.

For some it is about looks, for me it's about strength.

and for bumping up the power of my Green Vibrance health shakes, I often use:

Final points:

  • BCAA’s are as good for women as they are for men
  • Strength and muscle only comes through hard work, and nutrition is KEY.
  • Average serving size is 4-6 capsules, if you can’t swallow those, choose BCAA in powdered form.
  • BCAA’s are just one secret we have today for healthy, permanent leanness. Why would you pass it up?
