Calling ALL those interested in competing! Kitsap CrossFit will re-open its Competitor’s Class. This class will be open to ANYONE with aspirations of competing. Whether it’s a local throwdown, the Open, Regionals, or the Games; we can and will help you to prepare and improve.
The class will run for 12 weeks and will cost $150. Once you sign up, the first step will be filling out an athlete questionnaire, listing (known) 1 rep maxes on several lifts, benchmark WOD times, and stating a 3, 6, and 12 month goal. These goals will need to be realistic, specific and concise in words and numbers.
We will also identify your strengths and weaknesses so we can develop a plan to strategically work your weaknesses while also maintaining your strengths. You will receive semi-personalized programming that will supplement your regular CrossFit classes and Olympic lifting classes. Classes will meet three times per week on Monday and Wednesday at 6pm and Saturdays at 12pm.
Classes will be coached but not every class will have a high intensity metcon. These classes are times for you to work on skills, increase strength, learn to strategize WODs, and have watchful eyes on you to help you learn, improve, and get you prepared for your competition.
The first 12 week segment will officially start November 4 – January 31 and is geared to prepare you for the Open which should start in March 2014. Those interested should sign up ASAP to get the athlete questionnaire complete so we can build a plan for you when November 1 rolls around.
Here are the days and times that we will be offering classes during the week of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, July 22nd – July 27th. We apologize to those of you that are inconvenienced by this schedule. We will post some at home options for those of you who can not make it due to the schedule change. Be sure to watch the action down in Carson, CA as Coach Chris will be competing in the Masters 40-44 Age Group the 23rd-25th.
Join us for a 30-day strict Paleo challenge. Nutrition is the foundation of elite fitness. There is no better way to kick start your summer than dialing your nutrition. Here are the details for the challenge:
Dates: June 21 – July 21
Come help us give a hearty send off to Jeff E. as he gets ready to embark on a Cross-Country bike ride. Jeff is leaving on June 17th and will ride 42 days over 7 weeks from Seattle to Washington D.C.. This ride is hosted by the American Lung Association and will raise much needed funds to fight Lung Cancer. You can donate to Jeff’s mission by clicking here: Jeff’s Big Ride.
The send off will be this Sunday from 3-5pm at the Slippery Pig Brewery. Kirsten is buying the first round of craft brewed beer.
Gentlemen, it is time to put your hair where your mouth is…uhhh…literally. We would like to kick of a new KCF fundraising challenge. Since 2004 men around the globe have dedicated the month of November to growing a mustache to raise awareness for men’s health issues, primarily prostate cancer. For the first time ever, we would like to get the KCF community involved.
While this is a big international campaign, we would like to keep things at a local level. Many of you know that we recently partnered with the Peninsula Cancer Center to provide a CrossFit class for their new program called Survive & Thrive. We coached several breast cancer survivors through 12 weeks of CrossFit. It was an amazing experience and we are looking forward to further involvement with this program that will be extended to patients with cancers of all types.
So, here’s the deal, participating men will start with a clean-shaven face on November 1st. The goal from there is to grow the most amazing mustache possible for the remainder of the month. The members of the KCF community will vote with their wallets to determine the winner of the challenge. Each member of the challenge will have a collection jar at the box that you can put your “votes” (donations) into. At the end of the month we will count the “votes” and the stache that raises the most cash will be declared the winner. (Prize package yet to be determined, but rest assured that it will be much better than a pack of coupons) All the raised cash will be donated to the Survive & Thrive program (be sure to become a fan of the Survive and Thrive Facebook page).
Men, time to start planning your styles. If you aren’t sure which style is best for you, check out this video directory.
Still not convinced that this sounds like a fun idea? Check out Derek’s Mustache Facebook page. Oh, the fun we can have with facial hair, all while raising money for a great cause.
