Happy Monday, 818! December has come, here is what you need to know for the month ahead!
CrossFit 818 Holiday Party
Our annual holiday party is taking place this Friday, December 4th at the Left Coast Wine Bar (117 E Harvard St) at 7:00 PM. Come join us for a fun filled evening of drinks and food as we celebrate the good times that 2015 held!
CrossFit 818 will be closed on Christmas Eve (Thursday, December 24th) and Christmas Day (Friday, December 25th), as well as New Year's Eve (Thursday, December 31st) and New Year's Day (Friday, January 1st). Make sure to plan accordingly so you can get your workouts in!
CrossFit Total Event
Each December we hold an awesome event where we test our 1RM squat, press and deadlift. This is a great way to end the year because you can see how much stronger you've become - it also serves as a benchmark for what you want to improve in the upcoming year!
This year's CrossFit Total will be held on Saturday, December 19 at 10:00 AM. Mark this date on your calendar and get ready to lift some really, really heavy weights!
CrossFit 818 Coaches' Development Program
Here at CrossFit 818, we strive towards offering the most complete strength and conditioning program we can for our members. This includes world-class coaching, goal setting work, and nutrition direction. Of course, this relentless pursuit requires us to have well trained, professional coaches who can not only cover the specifics of movements and coaching methodologies, but also communicate clearly with groups, control the flow of a class, and be present outside of class to help with the organization aspects of our program.
In 2016, we will be reintroducing the CrossFit 818 Coaches' Development Program (aka CDP)! This is not a new program at CF 818, in fact, there have been several different iterations of it since the gym's inception in 2011. If you've been a member for awhile you may remember hearing about it or seeing it in action and all of our coaches are homegrown talent that progressed through the ranks to run the classes that you take today! This program is geared toward committed members who have an interest in becoming a CrossFit coach and want to learn how to teach movement in a challenging and dynamic environment.
If you're interested in joining CrossFit 818's Coaches' Development Program please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will fill you in on what the next steps will be.
