Danasabe “Papa Midnight” Mohammed

Napa’s only Professional MMA Fighter maintained his unbroken record last night in San Francisco at Kezar Stadium. In the second of three-five minutes rounds, he ended the fight with an aggressive Guillotine that forced his opponent out of the game. Don is coming back from a difficult year with two surgeries, so it was great to see him in action, and to take away the win. Don has a bright future, both in and outside of the octagon, and it’s a pleasure to be on the Papa Midnight Team. Learn more about Don here.





The Correct Ratio

I have finally realized after 52 years of living that the correct ratio of exercise to mobility is 1 to 1: For every hour that I CrossFit or lift weights or paddle or go to boot camp, I have to invest the same amount of time in keeping my muscles supple, my hips and shoulders open, my body functioning. GONE are the days of a five-mile run followed by racing to the next activity with little thought of all those tight muscles in the hips, legs and feet. Gone are the days of back squatting with little thought to knee care. It’s just the way it is now, and it’s time now to face the music! For me. How about you? When I run out of ideas on how to get my tight stuff loosened up I turn to MobilityWOD. Check it out!
