TUES 10.29.13 New Open Gym access!

By | CFMakeover, WOD | No Comments

New classes in November!

GOOD NEWS! Starting in November, we'll be offering more Open Gym access during off-peak hours AND those hours won't count toward your weekly class limits as they did in the past.
So what's that mean? You have more access to CFM! For instance, Bronze members can attend two regular classes a week PLUS as many Open Gym hours as you wish!
Open Gym will still be supervised by one of the CFM coaches.
This is a great time for:
-beginners to get extra skill work on movements you need help with
-aspiring Team CFM competitors to do accessory work/skill work
-Olympic lifting, powerlifting or gymnastics skill work
-MOBILITY WORK!!!
The new Open Gym schedule will be:
Mon-Fri: 8-9a
Mon-Thurs: 4-5p & 8-9p
Sun: 1-2p
So yes, the M & Fri 8a and M & Th 8p classes will go away, but you'll still have access to a CFM coach during Open Gym, just not in a structured class setting.
We'll also be adding another membership option - unlimited access to yoga & Open Gym only, as a month-to-month option, for $100 per month. Check your email later this week for more details, and/or hit Lis up with questions.

We're also adding a new yoga class, led by Coach Amy (did you know she's also a certified yoga instructor?!?), Wednesday mornings at 11a. Come do yoga & stay for CrossFit at noon!


Congrats to Liz M on a new deadlift PR (bonus points for the salty camera stare after the lift!)

WED 10.2.13 Quality groceries on a budget

By | CFMakeover, Paleo, WOD | One Comment

Quality groceries on a budget

by ITP student Uran
I’ve heard people complain that eating healthier, be it Paleo or otherwise, is too expensive.
Trust me, I understand. If you’ve ever tried to do your weekly grocery shopping at Whole Foods, you’ve probably walked out of there gasping for breath at the realization that you just dropped a small fortune on a week’s worth of groceries for ONE person.
Here are some tips and tricks on eating clean and keeping your wallet happy:
Shop around - Yes, it takes a little bit more planning and time to hit up more than one store, but it can really be worth it in terms of savings. Trader Joe’s is your best bet for most of the week’s food if you’re eating paleo...great prices on organic, free-range chicken, frozen wild-caught fish, grass-fed meats, grass-fed and raw-milk cheeses (if you’re into dairy), cage-free eggs, nuts, coconut oil, and organic produce.
Dekalb Farmer’s Market is another great choice for veggies and some clean meats as well. They have a gigantic selection so you’d be hard-pressed not to find what you’re looking for there.
Finally, Kroger (specifically the Ansley Mall Kroger) is great for everything else. They have a pretty decent organic produce selection and always have good sales on goodies like sweet potato chips, lara bars, Amy’s soups, coconut waters, etc.
Don’t buy everything organic - If you can afford to buy everything organic, go for it. But if you can’t/don’t want to, then just buy organic for the "dirty dozen."
Plan your meals in advance - Spend just 30 minutes figuring out what you’d like to cook in the coming week, buy some items in bulk and get more bang for your buck. Learning to love leftovers is helpful here as well. You can make 3-4 portions of one meal, and have it several times over the course of the week.
Plus, you’ll cook less and avoid the what-am-I-eating-for-dinner crisis, which will help keep you on track during the CFMakeover. Win-win-win!
