Join the Team

There’s a bit of confusion in signing up for the 2017 CrossFit Games Open. A lot of you are officially participating, you’ve selected ‘Foundation CrossFit’ as your AFFILIATE, but you’re missing the last step!

You need to select a TEAM and that Team needs to also be Foundation CrossFit

No worries, Cheryl C made a little step-by-step thing for you:

Otherwise here’s the actual Team Foundation CrossFit roster so far:

Half IronFCFers

In case you haven’t noticed, 2017 is here! Trying to figure out what to do with all that fitness you’ve been building all winter? How about taking it outside!

Sarah and Colin are taking on a half Ironman this summer, this time in Victoria, BC. And we’re looking for a few brave souls to join us. What does it take to finish a half Ironman?

1.2 mile swim.

56 mile bike ride.

Ending with a 13.1 mile run.

All told it’ll take around 6 to 8 hours. Sound outrageous? It’s not bad! In fact, we’ve already got two friends joining us who have never attempted an organized endurance event before. To get ready, we’ll all follow the same programming that got us through our first Half-Ironman in 2015 (about 3-4 months of training). If you’re worried about the swim or have any other specific questions (most people do!), we’ll also be happy to help personalize a plan for you.

If you’re interested in learning more about what exactly Ironman training involves, track Sarah or Colin down at the gym, or email info@foundationcrossfit.com to get a hold of us.

Keep an eye out for training events this Spring. Even if you don’t want to complete a half Ironman, you’re welcome to improve your endurance and stamina by joining us on a run, bike ride or swim!

YGIG and Bingo

You Go, I Go partner workouts are great for keeping athletes honest about staying accountable and going hard when it’s your turn to work.

F-C-F-B-I-N-G-O

Now that January is over we think we need something to keep the goal-setting and goal-finishing fires going. We’re not ‘resolutionaries‘. The 2017 CrossFit Games Open season is among us and what better way to kick off February by playing a new game…
 
Introducing FCF BINGO!
 
Here’s how we’re going to get geared up for the season and get a head start preparing for the 2017 Intramural Open (yup, we’re doin’ that again) at FCF.
 
– Starting tomorrow 2/2/17, FCF Bingo cards will be available for you to pickup and place in your journal.
– For the entire month of February, your goal is to complete as many tasks as possible!
– This is a completely optional game.
– Everyone is invited to grab a Bingo card, write your name on it, and start working on getting boxes checked off by your coaches until February 28th. It will have various tasks such as attending an array of classes and classtimes, posting selfies in the gym, and tagging us in social media, doing burpees, etc.
– After submitting in your card, you will be entered into a raffle for different prizes. The more you have filled out, the more entries you get BUT you are only allowed to win one prize.
 
One Bingo: 5 winners
Three Bingos: 3 winners
Blacked-out card: 1 winner
 
– You will be responsible for keeping your bingo cards with you or in your journals. If you lose it, you lose your checked boxes- no resigning past accomplishments!
– You may submit your bingo cards before February 28th.
– Cards will be checked at the end of classes on Feb 28 and the winners will be announced on Saturday, March 4th during the CGO 17.2 morning event!

Push Presses Are Leg Exercises

Bobby B

Violent leg and hip extension should be the focus within push pressing. The arms simply continue the speed developed by hitting the ‘finish’ position.
