Yet Another Take on CinDT

Throwback Thursday: a staff picture with Nate and Carl the last time we hosted a Freestyle Connection Seminar

“So what’s this seminar we’re hosting on Tuesday all about?”

GLAD YOU ASKED!

This is a 2 hour workshop designed to be an exploration of movement thru the Freestyle Connection framework. The seminar will help attendees set movement standards and learn to create universal progressions.

Specifically Carl will address:
– Freestyle Connection Framework. A universal language for movement.
– Principles of Motor Control
– Pushing and Pulling
– The theory of Blocking Movement

This seminar is designed to help you:
* Turn on and trust your intuition about movement
* Use tools that help optimize imperfect movement
* Tap into the universal movement patterns and progressions underlying all disciplines
* Use Carl Paoli’s movement framework to create roadmaps for your physical success
* Learn what being strong really means

WA Weather Is Back!

Performance Enhancing Drugs and more have a been a point of contention for a long time in sports and physical activities where money and pride are on the line. This was a pretty good primer when it was aired earlier this year:

A new movie on NETFLIX called Icarus was released and it is a fantastic look into something we all knew about, but didn’t see how deep it really went, how big of a conspiracy it was, as well as ties to some of the current events.

As far as programming goes last week we did some modified 2017 CrossFit Games events, this year we do a mix of previous years’ events!
