Learn how the Marc Pro works


MARC PRO Demo

Today 7/21 from 6:30-9am and 10am-1pm we will have David Melendez from Marc Pro giving free muscle recovery and activation sessions (10-30 minutes). There will be 3 stations set up and everyone is encouraged to try out a session before class, after the WOD for a recovery session, or on lunch break from work as part of your rest day recovery.

What is the Marc Pro? The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events. We call this a Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade, or “MARC®” for short. To learn more visit MARCPRO.com

Assessing overhead squats makes sure you have enough components of mobility and stabilization that work together to be successful. Here we go through a step by step approach of activating the right pillar system to train the correct movement pattern for squatting...Click here to read more: Dynamic Functional Mobility Series - Squatting From The Bottom Up (SBUp) "Repair+Recovery Workshop" by Lauren Polivka, DPT

Summer Yoga Series at CrossFit Midtown

We have our 3rd guest Yoga Instructor this Saturday 6/27 at 12 PM as we continue our summer yoga series at CrossFit Midtown. For Annie Harbison yoga is a chance to discover, a time to receive, and a place to heal. It brings her to a state of wholeness and balance when She's had a wreck of a day, and it allows her to express pure joy when everything is aligning just right in a stretch or pose. In Teaching, she'd liked for Yoga to remind us to stop controlling and to start letting go and immerse ourselves in the flow of things.

Join us on Saturday at 12pm for a special yoga class for CrossFitters lead by Annie Harbison!

What's the difference between rest days and recovery days? Rest is generally categorized as sleep and time spent not training or exercising. Recovery, on the other hand, refers to techniques and actions taken to maximize your body’s repair. And this doesn’t just mean muscle repair. Recovery involves chemical and hormonal balance, nervous system repair, mental state and more... Click here to read more: Active Recovery "Box Life Magazine" by William Imbo
