I am Crossfit...The Change.

This is my Tuesday/ Thursday Women's only Class. Six of these women have been on the "I am" road for 7 weeks now. This weekend they will compete against themselves to improve their strength and stamina in the I am Crossfit Bench mark workout.

3, 2, 1 GO!
Run 400
15 pull ups
7 bb cleans

X 3


They will take an 8 week post training pic and have their measurements as well as body comp taken!

All of these women, including the ones not pictured, are pictures of success! Every one of them has seen remarkable results!

Ladies, this is your last week... hit it hard and leave nothing behind except for that wine you don't need tonight, that bite of chocolate that is not worth it, that tap on the alarm that may prevent that extra pound from being lost because you slept through your Crossfit workout.....

Ladies start your engine.... be all you can be... I will see you at the finish...and note...

this is just the beginning!

much luv!

Not only has Malinda changed her appearance, she has gotten very strong, improved her run form and is therefore now faster and more efficient, and her health, according to her Dr., has improved in all areas... cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure....

Hard work pays off!

Erin attends the 9 am Women's Only Class! Erin set out to get into her "Skinny Jeans".
She is one of my I am Crossfit Clients.
She has had to learn how to zone, learn how to workout on her own, and manage, like all of us, a crazy schedule!
Erin pulled her tight jeans away from her belly today and said "look at all this room"! She has done a great job, as well as all of my I am Clients! We still have 11 days until weigh in, stay focused Ladies and if you think you can, you will!

C ya at the finish line in your tight jeans!

I am Crossfit

I had quite a week.. i say that in the terms of last Thursday to today. It started last Thursday with the level II Crossfit Certification. Wow, high energy, high caliber trainers and trainees in our gym! Awesome, Awesome job to all the trainers, Coaches, clients.... it was a blast and not to mention a great learning experience.

Saturday we had a great affiliate gathering and an awesome turn out for the affiliate workout at Auditorium shores! That night over 200 crossfiters gathered to see the first viewing of the movie Every Second Counts. Awesome movie! talk about motivating inspiring... ever brought tears to my eyes! Great job to Carey and Sevan.

After getting in waaayyy to late I strained my back... and that is where the new approach to Crossfit comes in. What is that you ask? It is when you move slow and functional. This takes some concentration and a certain level of focus. You cannot be in a rush and you have to really make a good decision on if it is worth lifting or not.

Crossfit is functional and thank God I am able to move so well or this could have been ugly. I just did my first workout in 5 days.

150 squats
200 lunges
100 pull ups
100 push ups

Not times but moved through nice and smooth... I look forward to the next WOD. I new I loved to move but man when you can't have it you want it! Note to self!

Have a great Thursday!
