Need some help with your nutrition but don't know where to start? Be at the box Saturday at noon for CFM's next Food as Fuel class. We'll discuss the basics of the paleo lifestyle, review food logs and answer questions. If you plan to attend, email Alicia to get your food journal, complete it by Saturday and bring it with you to the event.

Massage deal

Here's a note from Monica Miller (LMT, CCH, RYT200), CFM student and resident massage therapist, about her August special. Check it out:
As an avid Crossfitter & Massage Therapist I know what our bodies go through!
I'm offering a special for Midtown CrossFitters for the month of August: $49 for a one-hour massage
My specialty is the professional and amateur athlete & any tightness/pain that comes with the territory.
My clients include NASCAR & Le Mans racing drivers, NFL players, NBA & WNBA players,
and most importantly the owners, trainers & members of more than 10 CrossFit affiliates.
CrossFitters are my clients, my friends and the athletes I understand the most, because I am one of you!

CFM's Instructor Training Program kicks off August 19th!

We are looking for motivated CrossFitters who want to go beyond being just an athlete – those who aim to be a great coach…not only knowledgeable and articulate about CrossFit, but also capable of teaching a great CrossFit class.
The CFM Instructor Training Program is designed for the ongoing development of a fitness coach. We may have several members interested in coaching, without having to change careers to do so. This program is designed for both the person who is looking for a career change, and for the person who just wants to learn more, share it with others, and teach an amazing class.
We will develop a group of people who will be great substitute coaches, assistant coaches, and perhaps eventually be part of the CrossFit Midtown coaching team or staff. Our current coaching staff will also participate in ITP as a continuing education program.
Please email Lis if you are interested in the program. We’re looking forward to building our team from within the CrossFit Midtown community.
________________________________________
Goals of the CrossFit Midtown Instructor Training Program:
1. Provide our members an opportunity to further their growth as an athlete and leader by becoming a CrossFit Midtown Certified Coach.
2. Create a core group of student instructors who are knowledgeable and proficient in the instruction of CrossFit movements AND capable of teaching a fun and valuable CrossFit class.
3. There is no cost for this program but you must be motivated and committed.
________________________________________
Program Description:
The CFM Instructor Training Program is designed to add to our expert coaching staff and build a pipeline of assistant coaches and helpers, some of whom may go on to become lead coaches or work on the operations side of the gym.
We are only looking for people who are responsible, self-starters, motivated, and are ready to learn how to become part of our team and what makes our gym so special.
Instructor Training Program (ITP) Class:
CFM's 2012 ITP class will meet Sundays from 8 to 9 pm for 12 sessions. September 2 will be an off week for Labor Day weekend. Session dates are Aug 19, 26, Sept 9, 16, 23, 30, Oct 7, 14, 21, 28, Nov 4 & 11.
We will hold weekly ITP class for three months, to discuss programming and give each member of the coaching team and ITP an opportunity to review proper movement assessments, progressions, safety, coaching cues, and receive constructive criticism on their coaching effectiveness, their ability to organize, motivate and lead a group.
**Note: Completing the CFM Instructor Training Program in no way obligates you to being a full or part time coach/instructor at CFM. Completion does not include a CrossFit (HQ) certification, which will also need to be attained before a candidate becomes a lead coach. It also does not guarantee you a position as a regular instructor in the CFM schedule.
________________________________________
Entry Requirements:
1. Minimum of six months of CrossFit experience
2. Write a “Letter of Intent”
This need not be long, but it should be from the heart. This IS a requirement, and may be used to determine your eligibility for participation in the program. Email this to Lis by Sunday, August 12th. You will find out within one week if you have been accepted.
Please include:
• Why do you want to be an instructor?
• Why would someone want you to be their Coach?
• What is your background (include all): education, profession, sports, fitness and CrossFit experience?
• What are your strengths & weaknesses?
• Do you intend on being an instructor as a career or a part-time passion? (this will not affect your acceptance we just want to know where you stand)
3. Level 1 Proficiency Test
A basic movement test must be completed with a passing score. Scheduling this test is the responsibility of the student. The test must be completed in person with Lis.

The Whole Life Challenge starts next month!

Can eight weeks change your life? Absolutely. From September 15 to November 10, CrossFit Midtown and other affiliates around the world will be buckling down to make positive changes and create healthy habits for ourselves. Read more here.
YES, eight weeks is a long time. But this challenge isn't about eating perfectly paleo for 56 days. It's about holding yourself accountable, tracking your behavior (workouts, nutrition, supplements, mobility) and IDEALLY, creating some healthy habits for yourself.
We'll be having a Whole Life Challenge orientation at the gym in early September, to answer questions, discuss things like grocery shopping and meal planning, and set you up for success for this eight-week period. Registration opens August 15.

New classes

For the month of August, we're trying out an 8pm class on MONDAY & WEDNESDAY nights. We'll also add a 4pm class on Fridays. The 7pm Friday class has been cancelled due to very low attendance. If attendance is good, we'll keep the classes on the schedule.
