Barbell Club - New Time, Same Greatness

Beginning July 1st (well really July 3rd, but July 1st just sounds better) Barbell Club will run from 5pm to 6pm, Monday - Thursday. Everything else with Barbell Club will stay exactly the same!

Why? We always make changes with our members in mind. We've found that the 15 minute overlap between Barbell Club and 6pm CrossFit Class leads to distraction and safety issues. The noise of barbells banging while the CrossFit Coach leads a class and the safety of all our members as CrossFit is warming up while Barbell Club is in the heaviest part of their lifts made this a no brainer! 

Roundtable Discussion: Nutrition

Do you have a CrossFit Unlimited, 3x/week membership, or IGNITE+ membership? If so, this roundtable is one of those perks saved just for you!

As part of these memberships, you get goals meetings with your primary coach. What we find is many people have the same questions, so we've organized a group format to reach as many of you as possible. Of course, if you'd like your 1-on-1 goals meeting you may reach out to your primary coach, but this is a way to deliver as much information as possible to as many people as possible. These monthly Roundtable Discussions along with our monthly Skills Workshops are designed to help each person reach their goals!

JULY 12 - Join Coach Jesse Wiesner as he tackles some of the basics of nutrition. Your questions and participation will guide the discussion from there!  In an effort to make this fit into everyone's schedule, the Roundtable will be held at two different times on the 12th - Noon or 7pm. Reserve your spot below!

If you'd like to upgrade to the CrossFit Unlimited, 3x/week membership, or IGNITE+ membership please contact any of our coaches and they will get you set up!

Benchmark Saturday Workout

Whether you go to IGNITE or FitELITE, one aspect of our workouts is marking progress. Are we seeing improvement in our body composition? Do you feel better? Are you performing better?  We offer an InBody scan to help you see if your body composition is changing.  The way you feel is something only you can measure, but how do we measure our performance?

One way we can do this is with benchmark workouts and regular fitness tests. You'll see this coming one Saturday every month. Benchmark Saturday allow you to test your fitness and track your progress! We all feel like we're plateauing or not progressing as we'd like. Benchmark Saturday is your opportunity track your progress and work toward a goal!

IGNITE: Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 15th establish a fitness test that we will re-test on a regular basis!  We will have 3 different workouts over the course of the next 3 months. These workouts are then repeated every quarter!

CrossFit: Mark you calendar for Saturday, July 29th from 8am to 10am. That's right...1 class that last 2 hours. For our first Benchmark Saturday, you will be doing CrossFit Total. This is your chance to establish your 1 rep max in Strict Press, Back Squat and Deadlift. Record your results because we'll be testing this again in 3 months!
