We will host a two-part mobility workshop on April 11th and 18th. The workshop will be taught by our in-house chiropractor, Nick. Each session will last an hour and will begin at 12:15. April 11th will be focused on mobility of the lower extremities, while April 18th will consist of mobility techniques for the upper extremities, spine, and a full-body fascial stretching protocol that is rarely taught in the U.S.
Along with being taught multiple ways to properly mobilize every part of the body, it will also be explained how each will help with your lifts and technique in the gym.

Nick has treated professional and Olympic athletes at two different training facilities in Phoenix, as well as the CrossFit Games. He has taken aspects of the warm up and training routines from each place and put together a comprehensive workshop that he has taught at a couple of other CrossFit gyms. In April he’ll be doing it at CFFS.

Just $20 gets you into both sessions. Sign up in the office.

Time to Vote

Ok so we haven’t gotten very much feedback for as many members we have in this gym so let’s try this a new way…Please click on the poll below and at least enter a simple yes or no for us.

I do want to take a minute and try to alleviate some of the concerns I have heard so far and maybe try to explain a little differently how we came to this option. We knew that this switch would be a drastic shift in how CFFS has operated and didn’t come to it lightly. I’m not going to write a book but I’ll simply Bullet Point the keys as to why we thought it was going to be worth it and an improvement for you.

Many people were interested in doing strength but weren’t comfortable to do it on their own.
Workouts like 6x400m run and Sit Ups and Burpees are valuable to your fitness but don’t necessarily need coaching.
Many people exhibiting poor form but also not wanting to slow down once we call 3,2,1 to fix it…The whiteboard became more important.
People stating things like “Ive been here for ___ amount of time and still cant do _____” yet we never see those people practicing the skills required for their _____.
The Strength and Skill boards being optional resulted in not many participating in them or making gains in those areas because they were worried how it would reflect in their performance on the board for that day.
We realize that trying to do all 3 components in an hour or so isn’t practical. Let me clarify….You aren’t expected to. There has to be 2 of the 3 things that interest you. If you have NO DESIRE to do Strength then please do the Skill work and Met Con. If you do the Strength and Skill and run out of time for the Met Con don’t worry about it we will have a WOD the next day.

This new format is in no way easier on us to run or program but we believed enough in the benefits to you guys to take it on. If the polls show that it’s truly not what the majority wants then we will go back to the drawing board and try to figure something else out.

Front Squat
1 x 8 @ 65%
1 x 6 @ 75%
1 x 3 @ 85%
2 x 1 @ 90%

Shoulder Press
1 x 5 @ 70%
1 x 4 @ 80%
3 x 2@ 85%

20 Dive Bomber Push Ups
