This weekend we hosted an Alexkazam Gymnastics Workshop at CFI.
We had a good turn out for the weekend, CFI members and non members. Alex MacInnis is former Canadian National Gymnastics Competitor. All who attended the workshop this weekend we’re lucky to have lots of hands on training time with Alex.
The attention to detail that he displays and teaches, through body awareness, coordination, flexibility, power, and pure bodyweight strength is incredible. We have already been asked by a handful of members if we will host another workshop in the spring as they were unable to attend.
The answer is yes!
You can check out the photo album on our FB page. More photos still to be uploaded!
Hey Guys we have a good response and had meetings with lots of athletes who have set goals. We still have not heard from some of you. If you did not receive an email please let us know and we will get you set up. Please if you have decided this option is not for you let us know as well so the coach you are assigned to can be notified. Hope everyone is starting to work at these goals and we will be keeping tabs on your progress and celebrating your wins!

COMING TO INDESTRI:
2016 REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN
A Note from Coach Stouty
“Hey Guys, this is for those of you thinking about wether or not you want to participate in the open… I have participated in the open for 4 years and have YET to submit 1 rep to the official scoring. Maybe this will be the year or maybe it won’t. Either way I could care less, for me the open is not about competing its about community. It’s about seeing all of you try something that makes you nervous or pushes you out of that comfy spot. It is about seeing you get your “firsts” whether that be a full depth squat or a pull up, it could be as advanced as a muscle up but I celebrate it the same. It is seeing you set a goal to finish and giving it a shot! For me the Open is a time in of the year where we can all get together and cheer each other on and celebrate each others successes. Its a time when we may get a pr or we may tank the wod.. In both situations you celebrate showing up and attempting the workout. If you get 1 rep or 200 all that really matters is you tried and you gave a solid effort. So to me the Open is about YOU!
I believe its a great way to make friends, share experience and support each other! So if you’re not sure… Give it a shot and come to my side of the fence. We can suffer and cheer together.. plus I usually bring beer so there’s always that plus side! :)”
Hope to see your name on the board
The times of re-doing wods or cutting into other classes just to get one more reps is gone and past. The new day of the Open is here where we come together celebrate our accomplishments and if you really feel you must do it again you will make arrangements with a judge and use open gym time to re-try. Please be aware of the regular programming and other members class time as well of all our coaches time. The open is about fun and community and lets remember that in 2016!
IT’S TIME! sign up! Open is upon us!
More details about the Open at Indestri this year will be coming soon!
We’re trying to decide what day to hold the Open WOD’s on at CFI, either Friday Night Lights, or go back to our Saturday’s like a few years ago. Please let us know which day is better for you.
