SLO Op Climbing brings high adventure films & activities to area

SLO Op Climbing

Full week of films and activities through Oct. 7 celebrates the great outdoors.

Last year’s benefit screening of Banff Film Festival’s Radical Reels tour in San Luis Obispo was such a success for SLO Op Climbing that they decided to expand one night of films to a full week of films and activities celebrating people in the outdoors from Sept. 30 to Oct. 7.

A joint venture between All Out Events and SLO Op Climbing, both run by Kristin and Yishai Horowitz, the event comes at a time when people start to wrap up their summer adventures and start thinking about winter.

Local produce company SLO Veg brings the bounty to the table

Food is an extremely intimate subject; it provides comfort just as much as it provides energy for living. What you eat matters to your health, and there can hardly be a more satisfying feeling than picking a fruit from a tree, or pulling a vegetable up from the chocolate-brown soil, dusting it off, and taking a bite – but just a small taste! – one, first tiny little nibble, and letting nature’s nectars delight my taste buds. It’s important not to overwhelm your tasters with an enthusiastic chomp. Take a small bite, chew slowly and gently, and feel the food.

Teamwork

Professionals help avid adventure-seeker balance a DIY lifestyle

My mom and dad raised a do-it-yourselfer. Car needs a headlight? Figure it out. Sink leaking? No problem. But what happens when your football-playing father teaches you to just suck it up when your body falls apart and that doesn’t work for you?

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

 

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

By Jamie Relth

From the end of the pier in Avila Beach, the ocean seems like a warm, welcoming place. The smooth glassy water surface reflects a buttery, golden morning sun and the white craggy rock islands hugging the coastline to the south seem like a breadcrumb trail leading to adventure.

That’s how it seems.

The CrossFit Games

The search for the Fittest on the Planet

The purpose of any workout is to “increase your fitness”, yet only one workout program has actually defined “fitness”.  In CrossFit, fitness is “increased work capacity over broad times and modal domains”.  This sounds complicated but its actually very simple.  It basically means that you have the ability to do any task, for a variety of different times and at different weights.  Not that you are the best at the tasks, but that you are physically prepared to do anything, whether its life, career, or sport related.
