Consistent Progress

Consistent Progress

We talk a lot about goals when we meet with athletes one-on-one. What do you want to work on? What do we need to accomplish in the next 6 months to be successful? Where are the weak areas that we can shore up? What do you really enjoy doing in the gym or outside of it? These questions give us important insight into what motivates you to do the work day in and day out and really why you are here. It is important to attach meaning to the work we do in the gym because motivation will eventually and inevitably fail us.

Pro Night--Bone Health

Pro Night--Bone Health

Our next Pro Night is July 17th at 7 PM. What is Pro Night? We bring in an expert to give a free talk on topics related to health and wellness that matter to you, our community. It's an opportunity to spend some time with athletes that you don't cross paths with daily and learn some practical information that will help you be healthier over the long haul. 

The Starting Point

The Starting Point

We are off the hook excited to announce the launch of our new Unloaded class series. I have heard so many stories of people in our community that want to get in shape but are intimidated by heavy barbells and the intensity of CrossFit. Now we have an option just for you. Imagine a class that combines cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, core work, and muscle endurance training without heavy barbells or prescribed weights. In the Unloaded program, we combine rowing, plyometrics, body weight movements, medicine ball work, and traditional calisthenics, as well as light barbells, dumbbells or kettlebells. You get a great workout and begin building momentum toward a healthier lifestyle without the intimidation.

Fab Fridays Downtown

Fab Fridays Downtown

We are super excited to be a part of the Fab Fridays series sponsored by the Business Improvement District (BID). The BID is working hard to help downtown businesses in the wake of the fire and lack of tourists visiting our town. One of these efforts is a series of Friday night block parties in July to get folks downtown. Our end of Main Street is slated for July 13th. We will be hosting an Open House as well as mini-workout sessions for those interested in testing the waters. Cantera and 11th Street Station will also be participating that night so it should be an awesome night to be downtown. We are loaning out our parking lot to the BID for games and family fun as well (cornhole anyone?).

What's with the RX?

What's with the RX?

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. Today I write to you about a topic that is vexing to many in the CrossFit world. I'd like to shed some light on the purpose and applicability of "RX" for workouts. I can't promise to answer all your questions or perfectly illuminate the flow diagram of who should and who shouldn't in every scenario, because quite honestly, there are just too many variables that come into play. Still, it is an important part of how we measure progress so it is worth examining.
