Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Vision- " we suffer more in imagination than in reality"- Seneca. Things are never quite as bad as we make them beforehand. We as humans build things up to be the huge scary obstacles, but then we get into the nitty gritty. The nitty gritty is never as bad as we imagined. We are far stronger than the credit we give ourselves. Next time you fall into the trap of doubt, try thinking about ONLY the things you can control.

First Saturday Friend Fest - for good! This November, when you join us for First Saturday Friend Fest, we will be collecting canned goods for Second Harvest Food Bank. Actually, we'll be collecting them the entire week before, because we've seen how much this community likes to change lives. Stay tuned for any specific needs of Second Harvest.
We are a little lighter this week at 75% 1 RM. Next week we will jump to 90% for 2-3 reps. Take this week and really dial in the mechanics under load for our lifts.
Monday will be a burning ring of fire. Row hard, KBS, and NUrpee in a 2 round sprint format.
Tuesday we will be performing a classic crossfit benchmark "Cindy". Pull-ups, push-ups, and squats. take care of your hands.
Wednesday we will have a super fun team workout with the Assault bike and tire flips.
Thursday is an "Open-feely" type WOD. Long "amrap" meant for only one or two rounds. High rep box jumps again, db snatch and knees to elbows (think TTB but a little more accuracy involved).
Friday is another sprint feel with a 15-12-9 sit ups, double unders and squat clean light.
Saturday is a TEAM wod with a higher rep version of Cindy. All reps are split between a team of 4.
Leaderboard Envy - yes, it's real. Coach Freddy discusses here how it can help and hurt your performance in the gym.
Mastery Class - Remember the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month at 11 is a teaching class. In this class our newer coaches and/or coaches in training teach the class with in the moment feedback from Drew or Caleigh. It's a great learning experience for athletes too, and we especially encourage newer athletes to attend. This class is a bonus to the 2 or 3x per week membership. The next Mastery class will happen on October 28.
Pre-class prep - Remember that you that you are encouraged to come to class early and move around a bit or mobilize on your own. On weeks like this week when we are lifting heavy, many of us need a little extra stretching and mobilizing prior to the start of class and you are encouraged to do so. Also, the coach for that class will be on the floor to answer questions about scaling or focusing the workout for you individually. It's best to talk about this before class and much more difficult once class starts.
Need some extra 1-on-1? Private coaching is available for all of our athletes. Maybe it's to clean up snatch or clean up your diet. Your coach is available for extra 1-on-1 time by appointments. $40 per 30 minute session, $60 per hour session.
