Housekeeping note(s): In an effort to keep our Athlete Lounge tidy, we are asking that you please clean up any and all trash that you bring into the lounge.  This includes: paper towels, cups, water bottles, wrappers, cups of soup (?), food, etc. If you see a piece of trash, please throw it away. To some, this may seem like common sense, but the room has started to become a bit neglected, leaving your coaches to clean up after your mess.  Please check your cubby/area and clean out anything that does not belong there.

Also, if you use the bathroom and go #2, PLEASE leave the door cracked slightly with the fan on! If the bathroom is missing product, please let one of our coaches know so that we can re-stock.

Lastly, If you leave your children in the lounge area while you work out, we ask that they do not climb all over the couches or tables, write on the whiteboards (and leave it), write on out post-it notes, play with the foam rollers, etc. We have put a DVD player and TV in the lounge that your children are welcome to use, or they may do their homework, read, etc. The athlete lounge area is not a play-pen, so PLEASE clean up after your children.  We love being child-friendly, and we hope we can keep it that way. Thank you for your cooperation and efforts to keep our gym clean.


Foundations Reminder: The weekday Foundations Sessions start tonight. We will meet tonight, Tuesday, and Thursday 6pm-7pm. You are required to come to all three sessions. If you can't make the weekday course please come to the Saturday session 11am-1pm. Please arrive on time!

You Know You Are a CrossFit Parent When:

By Betsy

  1. You have picked your children up from school wearing oly shoes and knee socks on more than one occasion.
  2. You tell your child that you will be at his school reading group the next day, and he asks you to “please shower before you come,” so that, for once, you are not “stinky or sweaty” when you help in class.
  3. Your kids can eat their weight in bacon.
  4. Your kids take joy rides on the prowler (preferably pushed by someone else).
  5. You share your children’s love for adventure, play, and pure joy in movement.  You find yourself wondering right along with your child if you could “jump that high,” “climb that tree,” “pull yourself up onto that wall,” or “pick up that heavy thing.”
  6. When you are at a birthday party that involves trampolines, swimming pools, laser tag, or gymnastics, you do not sit on the side and chat with the other parents…you join right in along with the kids!
  7. Your child complains that his gym teacher does not do “real” pushups, because his “chest never hits the deck.”
  8. You beam with pride when you look across the gym during a workout, and your child executes a pretty awesome PVC pipe snatch.
  9. At the “Jump Rope for your Heart” event at school, you find yourself doing double unders on the playground.
  10. You go grocery shopping, and your child shouts over to you, “Hey mommy! Check it out!” and completes a perfect thruster with a watermelon (thankfully!)
  11. Your CrossFit gym loves, accepts, celebrates, and cares for your children like their own family.  Your children are comfortable playing/chatting with the members and coaches, and cheering on athletes during WODs.  Your kids are part of a unique environment where strength is celebrated, goals are set and made, and hard work, dedication, and healthy living is carried out on a daily basis (and it is not so strange to eat kale and chicken for lunch).

For this exercise one partner applies a little extra downward force on the kettlebell while the other partner resists the extra force. Squeeze tight from your core to prevent yourself from losing good position while the KB is coming down.

For this exercise try to lower yourself in a controlled manner to the floor then, giving yourself a slight push off the floor, pull yourself up to the kneeing position with your hamstrings. The other partner simply anchors your feet, and maybe holds your hand. :)
