CrossFit Games athlete competitors final week 2013
(please read – there are schedule changes at the bottom and live on MindBody)
CrossFit Sioux Falls, THANK YOU! I am thankful for every member in the gym. It has been a long time since I have typed to all at once, but there are updates and much to share. I am excited for the gym, the members of the gym and even Sioux Falls and those yet to come in and experience CrossFit, our community and their inner athlete firsthand.
Our training and classes have never been better. Attendance grows week over week. Our trainers continue to develop their own skills and pass that knowledge, the CrossFit Open was a huge success, PRs go up daily on almost anything we do. Adults are realizing that the best truly is inside and ahead of them! That is AWESOME!!!
Just this week, Zak Carchedi joined our group of coaches on his own CrossFit Coaching journey. I believe he will be a huge success both individually and through others at CrossFit Sioux Falls. I am excited to have him join us. Tyler Resch will be back in Summer swing leading many classes on Tuesday and Thursday including our CrossFit Junior Athlete program again. You will want your kids to be involved in this program if possible; Tyler has an amazing impact on the lives of these kids and their own accomplishments and confidence grow every time they come in the gym. I love watching Tyler impact these kids.
CFSF achieved our own goals in the CrossFit Open with Mary Theobald qualifying for Regionals as an individual competitor and our Team qualifying with 8 athletes joining Mary in Chicago May 31 – June 2. During the Open we saw more athletes achieve greater results then I could have imagined. Frankly it was unbelievable how strong and fit so many people have become, and they just keep getting even better!
With growth and success comes some awesome challenges. To continue growing what I believe is the absolute best form of fitness and training and to meet the needs of our members, we have a few schedule changes. These changes will go into effect immediately this Monday. We do not want to wait, but rather push these through to meet the needs of the gym. We will be adding Zak as an additional coach as much as possible with Casey, Rob, Jeremy, Doc Rob, Tyler, Liza and myself to classes. Extra coaching skill will improve athletes and assist in a safe, productive environment to CrossFit. And, we are adding 3 classes immediately while moving a time-slot altogether. Here are the class changes. THESE START MONDAY, APRIL 29, 2013.
ADDITION: 3:15pm – 4:15pm class MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY (no class at 3:15pm Thursday)
CHANGE: 4pm class MOVED to 4:15pm – 5:15pm EVERY WEEKDAY (Monday – Friday)
CHANGE: 2:30pm class on FRIDAY moved to 3:15pm FRIDAY
OPEN GYM: 1:00-3:00pm MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY
ALL of these changes are up and live in MindBody Scheduling. Please sign-in when able. If you need help, please contact me.
Also, starting JUNE 10, 2013 we have a morning change with OLY and EWOD. Additionally, June 10 is the start of JUNIOR ATHLETES. You will want to pre-register if possible. We will run 18-classes for $115.00 plus tax for your Junior Athletes. There will be a week off in the summer and we will work around holidays as best possible. Expectation is 18 classes through 8-weeks. All of these expectations are also online.
Additionally, from May 31 – June 3 our staff is at CrossFit Regionals in Chicago. I am making arrangements for class on Friday that week. Sunday will be cancelled the last 2 weeks in May due to Holiday and Regionals.
Lots to digest. We are all working to continue to allow CFSF To grow while maintaining the best fitness community in the region.
In closing, all members I appreciate you as people and love to see you succeed. You have been an integral part of the growth and success of CFSF and I am proud of you! For anyone yet to experience CrossFit or wonder if it is right for you, please come in. Jeremy, Rob or any of our trainers will treat you first class and if not, please see me direct. We have no “sales speech” or “long-term commitments.” Frankly, what we do works and there is no need to tie you in, retain unhappy members, or force you in to a gym you do not want to be a member. But, if you have a desire to be the “best you” surrounded by people who are the “best them” you will find us. And if you stay around, well…come see for yourself!
