Let me start by saying, welcome. I wanted to use this first blog post to dive a bit deeper into who I am, what Just Tryna Stay Fit is about and where I want this whole thing to go.
In case you have landed here and didn’t know, my name is Cameron Hudson and I am a head coach at NorthEast CrossFit . I teach weightlifting, gymnastics, endurance and CrossFit. I am going on my fifth year of coaching and everyday I am more passionate about helping others reach their goals. Helping people exceed their potential, both in and out of the gym, is what gets me out of the bed in the morning excited to go to ‘work’.
Just Tryna Stay Fit was created to become a platform to share my training philosophies, show people that fun and fitness should go hand in hand and maybe get a few more Hawaiian Friday participants (I’ll save that for another post). Too often I see people lose that spark they had when they first started training. In those first few months it seems like every time you did something, you hit a new personal best or were learning a new skill. After long hours in the gym, constant aching and little enthusiasm (if any) to go train, that spark vanishes. For what reason?
I wholeheartedly believe that you can be productive in the gym without spending 3+ hours breaking down your body only to resent the process altogether. Simple and fun are the two biggest elements in my coaching. If you have those two notions, you have found a sustainable method that will keep you in the gym with consistent progress for years. If it isn’t fun, why are you doing it?
It is my hope that Just Tryna Stay Fit helps you change the way you approach training and life all the same. Neither needs to be a chore, but rather opportunities to become a better version of yourself. Training is only a fraction of our time, what we do with the rest of our time has more of an impact than anything else. How is your nutrition? Are you constantly complaining about what the WOD is? Are you trying to keep up with what top athletes are doing on social media? There is a direct correlation between how you are in the gym and how you are outside of it. I want my athletes to enjoy their training (life) and view everything as an opportunity rather than something they have to do.
Stay tuned for more posts that help shift the way you think about training, life and what really matters.

I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts with y’all, but remember, Just Tryna Stay Fit!
