!!!Happy Birthday Gareth!!!
Rest, Box Closed. No Activities scheduled today.
With spring break this week for most children in the area, we will not be running any CF Kids programs today, Monday or Wednesday. We will resume next Sunday April 12 with regular Kids programming.
We are adding a strength day to the week. Wednesday mornings we will begin squatting after Mobility. We will still follow with a Met Con, but we want to incorporate added squat work over the next twelve weeks. Since we had a short strength season before Open conditioning training we want to get back to a solid strength cycle. For the PMers, please consider coming in for Open Gym to get the squats in.
The Granite Games Qualifier has been scheduled to begin June 17. This is a four week in house qualifier which will act just like the Open. Based on rank you may qualify to participate in the 2015 Granite Games in St. Cloud, MN. If you do not qualify but are an active participant you will have first dibs to sign up for the Open events (teams of 2 same gender) before registration opens to the public. If you enjoyed the Open and would like to see if you can qualify for a more regional event The Granite Games is a great proving ground. For those of us who went last year we were fortunate to rub elbows with athletes like Sam Briggs, Mat Fraser, Stacie Tovar, Lauren Fisher and many other Games athletes. The event itself will be Sept 11-13, but qualifying will begin June 17. We will have more details as they come available for registration.
We are planning an outing to see the Sox/Indians Thursday May 21, 7:05 pm. We would like to get a good size group so we can order group tickets, maybe get our names on the scoreboard. If you are interested in joining us please post to “comments” to this post.
The box will be CLOSED Saturday and Sunday May 30-31 as we will be hosting a USAW Weight lifting seminar and certification. We will make arrangements for a Park WOD on Saturday, but no activities Sunday at the Box.
Saturday June 20 is the Sayre Park Open. Sayre Park is one of the most historic weight lifting clubs in the US and is located just outside of Oak Park. A USAW sanctioned event for all weightlifting abilities. If you are interested in signing up as a representative of Beverly Area Barbell Club please see me to get your training started.
Boot Camp is really taking off and is a lot of fun! Let’s keep this going, please share with your friends to get any non-CFB people in for a try. Our boot camp is a tremendous way to get introduced to functional training alongside our amazing community with no experience needed and no heavy lifting. If you have friends who just want to get their sweat on, this is the program for them. If you still have the email postcard, forward it along to any of your friends. Remember, we will honor the Groupon price in house for those who don’t want to purchase through Groupon.
Sunday May 3 at 8:30am, Riki Long aka Coach Lil Riki will be in Chicago and will offer a presentation of Flexible Dieting. This is a program which Sam, Jail and Dan M are following with tremendous success. From Riki: “My definition of flexible dieting- I like to call flexible dieting “flexible eating” because it’s not exactly a diet, but simply monitoring your portions. This is a way of eating that we can sustain for the rest of our lives. You are given a set of calories/macronutrients that you need to reach each day, and it is up to you how you want to hit those macros. With flexible dieting there is no food shaming, no binging, no guilt, and of course no restrictions, just moderation. Without any restrictions, we are less likely to have a binge day, making flexible dieting the better choice in dieting, physically, mentally, and emotionally.” This will be a 2 hour seminar and cost $40 for CFB members and $50 for non-members. Riki’s boyfriend Dan Tyminski will be joining Riki and offering a snatch workshop also. Admission fee covers both. Click here for sign up. There will be no Open Gym.
The sign up sheet is posted for the 6th Annual LaPorte County United Way Dodgeball Tournament being held May 16 from 10:00-2:00pm at Marquette High School in Michigan City, IN. We preach and promote playing other sports and activities, so what can be more fun then Dodgeball for the United Way? Cost is $300 per team. It would be great to get 2 teams if at all possible. So far there are three of us signed up. The sheet is hanging in front of the office.
