Barbecuing- For Better or For Worse?

The Final Benchmark Friday!

What was this all about?

Today is the final Benchmark Friday. We will do this again at some point but I am happy to announce next month's theme: Main Site Fridays! Before I explain how that will work, let me explain to you why we did Benchmark Fridays.

Why did we do Benchmark Fridays?

We did benchmark WODs this past month to allow our newer members to gather some fitness data (your results from the WOD) on themselves, and allow some of you that already had data to retest yourself to see if you have made any improvements. This is exactly how benchmark WODs are supposed to be used, to test and retest to make sure you are, in fact, making progress.

What do I do with this new data?

SAVE IT! Write it in your fitness log, e-mail it to yourself, save it in your smart-phone or online (Evernote and Beyond the Whiteboard are legit), tattoo it on your arm, etc. You will want to remember your data for when we re-test these WODs next time. In fact I would encourage you all to, at a minimum, write down/save your 1 rep maxes and other PRs ! Having this info is helpful not only to yourself but also to us, your coaches. The best way to measure progress in our program is by re-testing, and if you don't have any data to compare your new results, then we can't tell if you're making progress.

One thing to keep in mind is that the better you get at CrossFit, the more difficult it will become to set new PRs. So don't get discouraged if you only shave off a few seconds or only lift a couple more pounds. A PR is a PR! If you have further questions, please direct them to any of the CFMG Coaches.

What are Main Site Fridays?

Starting Friday July 6th and continuing for the whole month we will be doing Main Site WODs every Friday. When I am programming for the week, I will cruise the main site for WODs during the month of July that could fit into our program and we will do them every Friday for the month of July. Pretty simple, but here is the cool part: just like the benchmark WODs, you will be able to compare yourself to CrossFitters outside of our gym. You can go onto the main site and view what others are posting in the comments section, or you can go onto Beyond the Whiteboard and compare your results to others on there. There are a few other sites that allow you to compare your results to others, but if I had to pick I would use Beyond the Whiteboard. Keep in mind that some of those posts might be B.S. due to poor range of motion, skipping reps, etc.

I hope you guys are enjoying the new stuff we are doing within our program. Please remember to not only work hard, but also HAVE FUN! -Ian

We hope you all enjoyed your rides on the sleds!

How to Get IN THE ZONE

On Saturday August 4th we will be hosting the 31 Heroes WOD during all our classes. Many of us have worked or are still working as military personnel, and we understand how important events like this are in order to help support the families of the fallen. This year, all the funds raised will go to the following: Snowball Express, The Travis Manion Foundation, and to the memorial funds of each of the men killed in action on Aug 6, 2011.

Here is a brief history of this event, "The 31Heroes Project came about in response to the Chinook helicopter crash that took place on August 6, 2011 killing 30 military service members and one military working dog. Our first event was a fundraiser workout held four weeks after the day of the crash. In that short time, over 430 gyms hosted an event, more than 10,000 people participated, and $300,000 was raised and given directly to the 30 families affected....." Read more HERE.

What you can do to show your support and participate:

1) Read the names of the 31 Heroes HERE

2) *Register under our affiliate HERE

3) Make a small donation! There's no minimum amount you need to raise, even $5 can help make a difference.

4) Spread the word. Use Facebook, Twitter, MySpace Sealed, your personal blog, etc. to get others involved

*CrossFit Mission Gorge might not be listed yet since we just registered to host this event less than 24 hours ago. Be sure to check HERE for our name before you register.

What is the 31 Heroes WOD?

“31 Heroes”

AMRAP in 31 minutes

8 Thrusters (155/105#)
*6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent) 
11 Box Jumps (30/24″)

This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

Score is your total # of reps

*We will not be doing the rope climbs due to limited equipment. You'll have the option to either do 6 pull-ups or 6 muscle-ups.

Simply put: it's a pretty amazing place if a girl who hates exercising actually likes to come in to hang out and work out. #justsayin =D - Sami

Three Reasons to Train at CFMG

By: Ian

I don’t like to brag about how awesome CFMG is, but I felt like this needed to be written. It goes without saying that I feel like CFMG is one of the best CrossFit Gyms in the World. The reason I feel this way is because of the people who make up our CFMG Community.

1) A knowledgeable and Experienced Coaching Staff

Our coaching staff pretty darn knowledgeable when it comes to CrossFit, nutrition, and everything fitness. All of our coaches hold multiple certifications in a broad area of fitness topics from different organizations, and have attend many different fitness related seminars.

In terms of experience I am honored to have three former colligate level athletes, CrossFit Regional level athletes, a national level Olympic weightlifter, a coach who specializes in sports psychology, accomplished endurance athletes, and a Command Fitness Leader for The Navy that make up our coaching staff.

2) Our Community

In all honesty I’d say we are more a family than we are a community. The best part is that our family is constantly growing because of how welcoming, supportive, and caring you guys are to one another. You all cheer each other on, give pointers, spot, high-five, fist bump, help clean up, etc. Where else do you see this kind of support at a gym?!?!?!

Outside of the gym there is even more support that goes on. I cannot even remember the number of     times you guys have come together as a community to help a CFMG member in need. If someone is sick, injured, in need, or is just participating in an event outside of CFMG you guys seem to always rally together to help. This is a true testament to the character of the CFMG community.

3) We Practice What We Preach

I like to think that we, your coaches, sweat right alongside of you all. Our coaches do the WODs that I program, most of you have been in the same class as a CFMG coach, and we follow the same nutritional advice that we give to you all. This isn’t just a job for us; we actually live the CrossFit lifestyle. Every coaching point that we give comes from our own experience or knowledge, it isn’t just stuff we made up.
