I am at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs this week and have learned soooo much. I just can’t wait to return and share all the tips, cues and knowledge I have gotten. It is only day two of four, and I have gained a font of things to share. While I am here as an opportunity for me to be a better lifter and have this amazing opportunity, I am also here for you guys. So I can learn, learn, learn and share with all of you. I want you all to know I hold continuing education in very high esteem and I want to continue to learn so I can do my best to help make you all better athletes.
Share with friends and family our Boot Camp run by Erika every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00pm. If CrossFit isn’t people’s thing. We will continue to honor the Groupon rate of $84 for 12 sessions.
CrossFit Kids will run all week this week. Also our Summer CF Kids program will come to a close August 21. We will take a few weeks off to settle in for school and get back at it in September. We will announce the start date soon.
We will have more details on the nutritionist as we get out of Summer. Busy schedules and end of summer trips are keeping us from coordinating. We will have info soon as promised.
Many of you have opted to have your account charged for items in the retail area by placing your name on our IOU board. For those of you who have grabbed 1 item (typically $3 or $2) you may have seen or will see that purchase added to your upcoming membership dues. Your dues will go back to normal in September, but this is the best way to save us money on credit card processing while being able to recover your purchases. Thanks.
Some of us are working in the back of the Box on an Oly program. This is a 12 week cycle, supplemental to everyday WODs, where we are trying to improve our Snatch and C&J numbers as well as get better at the mechanics. Columbus Weightlifting has been so kind to give me an Excel template where we can plug in personalized numbers for anyone interested in following the program. It is by no means easy and it will consume an additional 1.5 hours of your day 4 days a week, but, we think it is a very effective program and we are excited to be adopting it and eager to share with all of you. If anyone is interested please email me, email@example.com with your Snatch, C&J and Back Squat 1RM and I will respond with a custom program.
As always, if you have comments or concerns please address them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get a reply within 48 hours. We want everyone’s experience to be the best it can be; we can not help or fix what is fragile if we are not informed or do not know. Communicate with the administration and we will do our best to rectify any issues. We would also love to hear positive feedback as well. What are we doing right? What would you like to see or do more of?
More detailed news will return once I get my head out of the clouds here land back in Chicago. Have a great day.
