Quote of the Week 6-10-2019
“Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.”
Our 6am class is in full swing! In the same way that “routine is the enemy” when it comes to training movements I think the same routine can become a deterrent when we talk about what time we work out. I am constantly programming variation of time, modalities, and lifts into our week, so I suggest switching up the time you work out every now and then and dropping into a 6am. Also, for all your friends that have been wanting to try us out but “just don’t have the time” please let them know that they no longer have an excuse and invite them into a free class on us!
I don’t know if it’s because it feels like summer is here but there has been a big influx of you guys getting on board my Nutrition Plan in the past two weeks! This is great news- to me that is the missing piece for most athletes. If you want to sign up here is a direct link for you https://www.crossfit631redwoods.com/pricing/ just click “Nutrition Plan”.
For those of you that have already come on board you know I program a few different supplements and items- next week I am going to put together clickable links where you can see, research, and purchase all these supplements right from this blog…so stay tuned!
Mel and I are about to head out to a last minute BBQ held at Dipsy’s house- hope to see you all there! Her and Manny (Chalky Balboa) decided to throw this thing to celebrate our amazing coaches and all they do- THANK YOU! I must say I am so impressed that there is always something to do with you guys. It feels like we always have some special event or party to look forward to and I am really enjoying the time spent with great people and friends.
This week we get to start periodizations for DB Bench Press, OHS, Hang Clean, Split Jerk, and Power Cleans.

We also get to celebrate our Member of the Month Kick A$$ with his WOD Tuesday. This is a 20 minute burner that focuses on a bunch of fun movements capped by a Squat Snatch.
