A note from Coach Tyler:
“The other day I read an amazing article by Allison Belger. Belger writes about the anxiety we feel when we work out in front of others. She points out that this anxiety usually has to do with our own insecurities.
You may remember a time when you thought something along these lines…”If I drop this bar, I’ll look stupid.”, “If I don’t do this movement as well as so-and-so others may think less of me.”, or “What will my neighbor think of me if I fail?”
This an interesting phenomenon and it is something that plagues almost all of us at some level. The only time we can really get to our best performance is when we do it for ourselves. Don’t care what others think. Don’t care if you fail as long as you’re trying your best. Don’t let these things, or others, get in the way of your improvement!

Expansion plans are now underway. They are building the garage door as we speak, the floor and walls are going to get cleaned and leveled, new lighting is being put in, and the wall will be torn down soon after. They expect to be nearly done in July, weather and other things permitting.
We soon will welcome Jarrod and Brie into our regular coaching schedule. They are nearly done with the apprentice program of running regular classes, Elements and specialty classes. We hope you welcome them like you have everyone else as they continually learn the process of being a great coach!
CrossFit Kids is coming soon, after or nearly after expansion is done! If you are interested, please contact Tyler with your child’s name and age!
Our Sunday morning Bradford Beach WODs and Hooverball are coming soon! The up and down weather is messing us up right now! Stay updated on the calendar and Facebook!
Our L2 classes will be starting up soon (we will be changing the name to Advanced CrossFit). We plan to have a test out day every month for which you test out to enter this class. It’s an advanced class for advanced athletes looking to take their fitness to another level, either as a competitor in the Sport of CrossFit, or just to be better in general. The guidelines are here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7HSJg7IcSg0MzZiT0hScjdJUnM/edit?usp=sharing
We are continually evaluating the needs of our class times. Be on the lookout for test time slots to see the popularity.
As always, please continue to look on our website for updates, along with Facebook. If you are on Facebook, but not in our internal private group, please let Tyler or another member know and we can add you.
