*****NEW SCHEDULE IN EFFECT*****
Please note the new weekday class times:
9:00 AM (M,W,F)
Saturday class times are still 9am and 11am.
Now that there is a little bit of extra time between classes, we encourage members to come up to 15 minutes early and stay up to 15 minutes later to do any bonus mobility work, skill work, or homework that your primary coach has given you. Need some homework? Set up an appointment for a 20 minute skill session with your PC.
The next 5 weeks are all about getting more proficient in the Oly Lifts (clean & jerk, and snatch). You’ll see the full lifts as well as drills in class as well some skill clinics geared towards this movements. Then, on Saturday October 24th we’ll retest our max lifts Meet-style with an in-house, CFHP only Oly meet, THE MONSTER MEET. See more details below.
Workouts are starting to get a little longer now that cooler weather is around the corner. You’ll see a good dose of both short and dirty anaerobic work (the really potent stuff) along with some longer more aerobic training sessions. Make sure you are fueling properly for both and taking 1-2 full recovery days per week. (Need help with nutrition? There is a skill clinic coming up for that too..see below)

We want to see all our athletes on this day whether you attend a class or just swing by. We have a gift for all of you. There will be no 7pm class, so that we can have a party in it’s place.

This page is the perfect platform to share and invite your friends and family that are amazed by what you do everyday. The class is free for your friends both days.

Saturday October 24th - The Monster Meet. Totally for fun and to give all our athletes the chance to retest your max Snatch and Clean and Jerk in an Olympic Meet-style setting.

All Athletes must sign-into class at the kiosk or iPad.
There have been A LOT of folks running into class at the very last minute or worse, after class has started. Classes begin at the stated time. Athletes should arrive a few minutes before to sign-in and settle in. It is very distracting for your peers and for the coach and yes, I’m gonna say it, rude, to come in late. Please don’t be that guy.
Please let the coach know if you have an injury or need to scale a particular movement before class starts. This allows us the time to really think through what the best options are for you.
There are lots of new faces! As always, introduce yourself to someone you don’t know and help them feel at home.
Remember to BUIYATAOO and stay Limitless!
