Quarterly Progress Checks

This week 8/18-8/23 is the quarterly progress checks where we retest from May 2014. There will be benchmark WODs and lifts every day. This Saturday, August 23rd will also be our CFM Gamenight at Ormsby's (see whiteboard for details).

Is this your first Quarterly Check-In Week?

Here's what's about to go down...
1. Retest your baseline! For your first workout of the week, you'll retest your Baseline. You also have the option to retest your Baseline WOD on Sunday at Open Gym on 8/24 from 1-2pm with Coach Dyer OR on Saturday, 8/23 with Coach Mike from 12-1pm (Make up day Open Gym). During the week, you can make up a day or test your Baseline at Open Gym times 8am, 4pm, and 8pm.
2. Goal-Setting & reflection: At the beginning of class on Wed & Fri, we'll take 5 minutes to reflect on our progress over the last three months and set some goals for the next quarter. If you prefer to spend more time on goal-setting, join Mike this Wednesday evening, Aug 20th from 8-830pm for a goal-setting workshop. We'll take some time to visualize what we want our future to be like, then set smaller, action steps to achieve our longer-term goals.
3. Record your results! If you haven't been doing it already, now is the time to start tracking your progress in the gym. You could use a spreadsheet. Or Google Docs, or old school with a journal/composition notebook. We have journals available at the ProShop too!
4. Saturday afternoon will be Make-Up Day Open Gym 12-1pm.Coach Kelly will be doing a Team WOD on Saturday in each of the three classes, 9, 10 and 11am and after during Open GYm you'll have the chance to make up a workout you missed earlier in the week.
