Hey everyone, I have an exciting announcement! We are launching three new speciality classes starting on Monday that are open to regular members. We are doing seven of each class to gauge interest and depending on which ones you like and attend, we will make them permanent additions to the gym in 2012. Each of these classes start on Monday and end by December 14th.
MovNat and Flow w/ Chris Garay on Mondays at 7:45PM
Chris Garay is a certified MovNat instructor and if you’ve ever wondered why he is contorting his body in weird ways or spinning in circles you want to take this class. Watch this video or this video for the inspiration.
Mobility w/ Jason on Tuesdays at 7:45PM
Not doing your mobility homework? Ya, we thought so. Jason has overcome some pretty serious mobility limitations over the past two years and wants to share his knowledge with you. Spend some time listening to chill music, stretching, flossing and solving those pesky problems. If this class doesn’t get popular, we are doing you a disservice. Everyone should go to this one.
Gymnastic Basics w/ Gretchen on Wednesday at 7:45PM
Who better to teach gymnatics than a scholarship level division 1 gymnast and CrossFit Games competitor? Gretchen will be teaching this class and if you are struggling with your kipping or muscle up, this is the class for you. Gretchen’s description follows:
The gymnastics class will start by focusing on the basic CrossFit gymnastics skills–pull ups, ring dips, muscle ups, hspu etc, by spending a lot more time emphasizing proper body positioning, safety, and various drills.There is a big fear factor in a lot of the gymnastics skills, and this class will help combat that in two ways. The first is exposure through continued repetition, and the second is understanding how to “bail” out of a move safely. Even without a gymnastics background, doing gymnastics is a lot less scary if you always know you have a safe exit strategy in case things go wrong.The class will also extend beyond basic CrossFit gymnastics and contain very basic tumbling and balancing work including press to handstands, forward and backward rolls (all varieties), learning the power hurdle for round-offs, and learning the beginning positions for handsprings and saltos.
