We are bringing back Barbell Basics/OnRamp Class on Wednesdays @5:30PM starting February 6th. All new members will be required to complete four (4) Barbell Basics classes before using a barbell in a regular class. Each of the 4 classes will focus on proper form and technique with different movements/lifts and will include a workout as well! Once you completed the 4 classes, you can freely use the barbell in any CFCA class. In the mean time there are always modifications to a barbell lift using kettlebells and dumbbells (which are sometimes harder!!!) so trust us you will still get a good workout in!
If you are a newer member and haven’t done a Barbell Basics/OnRamp class, we will reach out to you to get you all set up. If for some reason you don’t get an email from us, please let us know.
As a reminder, you can always schedule a personal training session with a coach to put in some extra work on anything you want! Just reach out to us or reach out directly to a coach!
MOBILITY/SKILL We’re running a Mobility/Skill class (alongside of Open Gym) on Thursdays @5:30PM. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to work on mobilizing tight areas of your body and/or working on a skill that you have a goal to obtain. We’re here to offer some extra work on the areas that trouble you or you want to just get that much better at. UTILIZE THIS CLASS FOLKS! Stay after the 4:30 class to cool down and stretch or come in early for the Grinder and get warmed-up!
ROWING CHALLENGE: Keep those meters coming guys! It’s been really fun to watch, and honestly pretty motivating, to see those numbers rise and rise as the days go by! Awesome energy and efforts – truly impressive!
COMMITTED CLUB: We know some of you covet the idea of being on the Committed club list each month! Here’s a little extra motivation for you: If you make it into the Committed Club for 11 consecutive months in 2019 you’ll get your very own kettlebell! While bells will live at the gym you can pick the weight and the color and it will have you name on it! You’ll also get a free t-shirt, because who doesn’t love a free t-shirt? All you have to do is attend 15 or more classes a month for 11 consecutive months. Get started today!
SCHEDULING UPDATES: Starting in February we will be changing the Friday class to 4:30PM. Hopefully this will help get you in and out and off to enjoy your big Friday Night Plans! We will also likely be adding Open Gym times after the Sunday 9AM class. It may be intermittent or it may stick through the winter months so keep an eye for additional updates when we get that all ironed out!
