Mobility Madness!

We are very happy to announce a new focus group that will be offered beginning Thursday, Novemeber 12th.

Do you feel like mobility is holding you back from achieving your goals in CrossFit? Do you feel like you know you NEED to stretch but are lost in which areas to focus your attention? Do you find there is too much information about stretching and mobility to make any sense of it all? Well let me tell you, we have got something incredible to offer…

In partnership with the amazing Dr. Deane Studer, we are offering a 4 week, 3 session mobility focus group. Find yourself a partner and sign up for this incredible course.
We are offering spots to only 4 pairs. The program will begin with an assessment formulated and lead by Dr. Deane. Who is Dr. Deane? He is a chiropractor and yoga instructor with years of experience in sports and movement. He is a practitioner of Active Release Technique and has attended many movement and spinal rehabilitation courses. He is basically the bees knees in terms of movement, assessment and correction.
After your assessment, Dr. Deane will provide you with an easy to follow set of mobility exercises specific to YOU! No need to waste your time with stretches that aren’t needed or could exacerbate issues.
You and your partner will then keep each other accountable to your mobility routine. If it’s you and your significant other, drop 15 minutes of TV time at the end of the day and work on your mobility. You and a friend? Take the time to text him or her and make sure they are doing their homework. Maybe even work out a way to train together a few days a week and use your daily routine as a cool-down. The more you can motivate your partner to do their homework, the better results you’ll see together.
After two weeks, you and your partner will come back for a reassessment and progress check-up. This is where you will get new stretches and exercises to keep you on the road to supple bendiness and movement mastery.
Two weeks later we will have our final follow up and progress check-up. Another set of stretches and exercises will be prescribed at this time, and you’ll be well on your way to certified CrossFit Ninja status.

Dates for the classes will be
Thursday, November 12 @ 6:30-7:30/8
Thursday, November 26 @ 6:30-7:30/8
Thursday, December 10 @ 6:30-7:30/8

Cost for sign-up is $50 each – $100 for you and your partner. You can sign up at the gym and pay cash at sign-up. We are only taking 4 pairs so get your butt in gear, find a partner and secure your spot. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!
