Congrads to Molly Johnson!

Molly has seen significant results in her fitness since coming to CrossFit back in March. It is a direct result of two things: Consistency and Hard work. CrossFit is definitely HARD work, but it is also very simple. Do what Molly does: show up + work hard and the results will happen (much sooner than later)

Molly you ROCK and we appreciate you. You’re definitely not a grandma:-)

“Paleoholics”

Posted in Lifestyle on July 16, 2009 by Crossfit Sioux Falls

Welcome to Paleoholics. What is Paleoholics you ask?

Paleoholics is a group based on the book the Paleo Diet. We formed this group to support, educate, empower and hold each of us accountable to improving our nutrition through the Paleo Diet. Every Tuesday this month we will meet at the gym at 7:15p after CrossFlexx. It is on the schedule and is open to all members (it does not count as a class this month).

We have also created a Facebook fan page which will be constantly updated with ideas, recipes, discussion on the Paleo.

Add the Facebook group: Click Here

Review from this Tuesday’s meeting:
-Write and complete YOUR one goal for the week
-Find a topic about the Paleo you want to learn; research it; and share it with the group at the next mtg
-Subscribe to the CrossFit Journal: HERE
-Start a Food Journal
-Sign up for the Fan Page on Facebook

How to really finish a workout….Finishers!

What is a Finisher?

A Finsher is:
1)The act of getting one last-blast before calling it a day.
2)A dedicated practice time after the bulk of the work has been done.

We all have our strengths and weaknesses (especially in CrossFit). Once you’ve established your weaknesses, the finisher can be an excellent time to continue to work on these areas of difficulty. The ideas you formulate do not have to be exact here. The doing is what’s important.

Can’t Kip? What to get better at your squats? Are you a good runner? The finisher maybe exactly what you need.

Open Gym…now open

Welcome Carmen to the crew

Welcome Carmen to the crew

CrossFit has a lot of movements to learn, and some you just won’t get without putting in some work on the side. Come in and work on: kipping pull-ups, L-sits, rope climbs, double unders, Oly lifts , Strength Work and whatever else! Open Gym time is perfect for: Improvement Training, Skill work, and Active Rest. If you are sore and recovering from a WOD or series of WODs, moving is better than not moving. Come in and go through a dynamic warm up. Spend some time watching some Oly Lifting videos. Have Fun! Play around! Maybe a game of “Stupid Human Tricks” will break out.

Check our class schedule on our site: http://www.crossfitsiouxfalls.com for Open gym times and to sign up.
