Just wanted to give y'all a few reminders about going ons at the gym over the next couple weeks.
Ogar Strong Fundraiser
This event is on Saturday, 2/15 (that's this Saturday). We've been telling you about this in class over the past week or so and posting about it on the blog almost every day, so please participate and help us help Kevin Ogar in his recovery. Details are in yesterday's post as well as in a newsletter that was emailed out to you today. Remember that every single penny is being donated and on top of that CF818 will donate 5 cents for every rep completed on Saturday during FGB!
Coaches' Development Program
Our CDP is a long, intensive, and successful program designed to develop the skills necessary for effective and great coaches. Everyone who coaches at CF818 has gone through our CDP, and all our assistants are currently in CDP. I've heard from various people around the gym that they're interested in learning more about coaching and/or pursuing coaching themselves. To give interested members a better idea of what CDP looks like without requiring any commitment, we'll be holding two information sessions during CDP's regular meeting time: 7AM on Saturday mornings.
This coming Saturday (2/15) at 7AM and next Saturday (2/22) at 7AM, we'll be holding two information sessions for people who want to learn more about what it takes to be a part of CDP. Both sessions will be modeled after a regular CDP session with extended Q&A pieces, some lecture, and some practice.
If you're still interested in joining CrossFit 818's CDP after attending those two sessions, we can talk about moving forward from there!
Front Desk HQ
Every one of you uses Mindbody on a regular basis to reserve your space in class. Starting in March, we'll be moving to a new service called Front Desk HQ. Signing in is just as easy as it was before, you'll just be directed to a new website. We'll give you more details regarding how this transition will work in the coming weeks, but it should only require you to claim or set up your account with Front Desk HQ. All existing memberships, classes, packages, etc will be transferred over without any trouble.
We currently offer 3 childcare classes a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9:30AM) where for $7 our very own Shay Shay looks after kids while their parents get a good workout in. Just FYI, Shay Shay will not be in for the last two weeks of February, so next week and the week after the classes will still take place but we won't be offering childcare during those classes. Childcare will resume the first week of March.
As always, let me know if you have any questions.
A. Pull up and Inversion Practice
*spend time developing your kip, your strict pull up, chest to bar pull ups, as well as your comfort with inversions whether that means practicing kicking up into a handstand, handstand push ups, freestanding handstands, or walking on your hands
*remember that practicing, learning, and mastering skills is an integral part of your fitness, and provides fun new goals!
B. For time:
wall ball (20/14)
