KICKBALL FOR A CAUSE THIS SATURDAY!!!!! 5pm.
Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Think back to the hardest decision you have ever had to make. Why was it hard? Probably because it had to do with other people. How would they take the news? What would they think of you about the decision? Was it even the right decision? If you have a strong set of core values (things that you hold near and dear to WHO you are as a person and WHO you want to be as a person) decision making is easy. Does the decision ALIGN with your values? If yes, then go for it. If NO, then saying no becomes powerfully easy. Your values will change over time, but using them to make decisions stays.
Taco Drew's Day happens every Tuesday on Facebook Live. Tune-in!

Kickball For A Cause is back!
Who - YOU, your friends, and family
What - good old fashioned kickball
When - 5pm THIS Saturday
Where - Hull Park (55th and Atlantic)
Why? To raise money that helps supports local families with paying bills while their child undergoes cancer treatment. And because kickball is AWESOME!
There is no Georgia Game on Saturday, so bring the family out to Hull Park. Bring a blanket or folding chairs, and drinks/snacks if desired (water provided). Teams will be made at 5pm. Back by popular demand - the Kids Game will be going down too.

The reason Crossfit works as a methodology is simple. We keep the WODs Constantly Varied, use Functional Movements, and most importantly we work at Relative High Intensity.
Constant Variance- we changed things up often. Types of exercises, times under tension, round numbers, amrap lengths, weights used, etc... There are literally et cetera variables. Our job is to keep the changes noticeable enough to elicit a change but not too big to be considered random. The untimed rounds for monday should look familiar but not the same. Welcome to Variance.
The movements we use are "functional". You will find a similar movement in our regular life. We train those movements so that you are ready for what life throws at you.
The intensity piece is WHY crossfit is so potent. When we say it is okay, we want you to work as hard as you possibly can. On a day like Monday, this plays an important role. Lift heavy, burpee fast and then repeat. The intensity drives the adaptation along with the variance.
Monday - untimed rounds of Cleans/Front squat, burpees and handstand holds.
Tuesday - WOD we missed last week with snatch, sit-up and double unders. This moves quicker than you would imagine. INTENSITY DAY
Wednesday - we are going to work on back squat then a super fast row, push press, pull-up triplet.
Thursday - is a little 17.1 feel with running, double unders and db snatch.
Friday - longer partner WOD with running and parts of DT-deadlift, hang power clean and push jerk.
Saturday - Running AGAIN!- didn't see that coming huh? Long Runs and then High reps of simple movements - TTB, Box Jump, Burpees.
During the Holidays we go to a limited schedule because so many athletes are traveling. By offering only 3 classes we ensure that ALL our coaches get some time off too and that classes are full and fun.
