Staring Monday June 3rd, I am bringing back the 9AM class! It will run until School starts up again!
When 3:30 becomes unbearably hot, I will get rid of that class until it cools back down some. Safety first!! I will let everyone know when that may happen though!
If you’ve been paying attention, we’ve worked our way through 3RM and 5RM from many of our main lifts. In June, we are going to slow things down a little bit by adding some prescribed tempo to our main lifts. By slowing down and spending more time under tension, we are looking to create some new adaptation and build some better habits -- respect the tempo!
Welcome some new faces!!
We had a nice influx of new members join us last month!! I am so happy to see our Gym grow! Thank you for joining us! Please be sure to keep these folks accountable so they don't slack off! Be sure to say hello to Crystal Bergl, Matt Thompson, Lisa Bertelson, Ashleigh Walton, and Shane Murray!!
Upcoming Birthdays This Month!!
Be sure to tell these members Happy Birthday when the day comes around!!
PLEASE DRINK WATER OR SOME TYPE OF SPORTS DRINK AT LEAST 20- 30 MINUTES BEFORE WORKING OUT IN THE AFTERNOON!
Its HOT... I know! But what can I do?? Not much, I don't control the weather! So come prepared instead! Hydrate before coming to the hotter classes in the afternoon. Sip on water during the workouts, and drink something to replenish all the sodium and potassium you lose in our workouts!
Remember, if you feel thirsty, you are probably already dehydrated!! So chill your roll and be sure to cool your body temp down to avoid heat exhaustion.
ATLANTA UNITED GAME
JUNE 29th @ 6PM
At the end of the month, 40 of us will be attending the ATL United soccer game!!! I cannot wait to hang out with all of you! If you were not able to make it to this gym outing, don't worry! I will try to set something else for all of us to do!
To those of you going to the game! Remember that we will have access to the Pre-Match Party which starts at 1:30! I will distribute tickets soon!
Maybe a Baseball game should be in the works like last time, tubing in Helen, white water rafting?? If you have any ideas for something, please don't hesitate to come talk to me and I can write some dates on the white board that could work for many of us!!
Summer time means showing off that CrossFit Body a little more! If you aren't seeing the results that you have been looking for, then you may need to change your method of how you attack your daily routines outside of the gym! I have tried to focus more on the metabolic condition portion of the new fitness pyramid, but how many are making NUTRITION your TOP priority?!
Remember, If you are looking to shed weight. Portion control will be your best tool of attack! Along with a SLIGHT calorie deficit over time. Please don't go from 2500 calories, to 800!! Your body will hate you and you will find yourself in a bathtub, crying while eating ice cream.... Instead you should reduce your calories by 100-200 a week until you find that magic number where you still feel great! This can work if you are tracking what you eat.
Looking for strength and gains?! Then you need to EAT TO PERFORM! You will need some extra calories to keep those muscles strong and to help with faster recovery. However, this does not mean EAT EAT and EAT whatever you want. You eat high quality single ingredient super foods!
Need Help choosing what may work best for you?? Just sit down with me or shoot me a message!
Our shoulders take a beating! So be sure to give them some love with Banded stretches. Here are a few examples to choose from!
If any of you are taking some time off, be sure to let me know!! We have a few of you leaving for vacation and military training! Good luck with your training and have fun on your travels!!
