Get to know Coach AmyAmy coaches the Wed 12n & Fri 4, 5 & 6p classes. Name: Amy Rakestraw Age: Shame, shame. You never ask a lady her age How long coaching CrossFit: I started with CFM in March 2013…it’s almost my 1 year anniversary!!! Other coaching certifications: Russian Kettlebell (RKC/SFG), Certified personal trainer, Yoga, TRX Athletic background/achievements: I used to be a gymnast and dancer in my younger years (I would choreograph dances with the neighborhood kids on my back porch to Debbie Gibson), I was in color guard and a cheerleader in HS. And then I became a slug until I found BURPEES! “Day job”: This. Yes, it is awesome. And I love it. Favorite CrossFit movement: I love to deadlift. I’m not great at it, but I really want to be. Favorite workout or movement to coach: Double unders. I consider myself the double under whisperer. In my spare time I enjoy doing: I really like to run. Which is good because I also really like to sit on a patio with a good margarita and some chips and salsa! Apparently I get really good at riddles after a margarita. Or two. Favorite quote: I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being – Hafiz Advice to new CrossFitters: Form first! Own the movement and then add weight.

Those poor plates…We have an epidemic lately of 10# & 15# plates splitting in half, so we’re kicking off the new SAVE THE BUMPERS awareness campaign, immediately. I KNOW taking weight overhead gets heavy. But from now on, no matter how fatigued you are, when your barbell is loaded with only 10# or 15# bumper plates, please escort it back to the ground. Do not drop it from overhead and leave that poor bumper plate to fend for itself against the mean ole hard floor. Then your coach has to take the pieces of that poor plate and put them in Lis’s office. And then Lis comes in and stumbles over it, almost breaking her neck, only to realize yet another of her beloved bumper plates has gone to an early grave. Bless their little bumper hearts. Congrats to Marvin who got his muscle up Wednesday night after a mere five minutes of prep with Coach Raul. Get it!

Gratitudeby Coach Amy This time of year it’s easy to remember to be thankful. That’s what Thanksgiving is all about right? One night where we sit around and stuff ourselves silly and maybe mention what we’re thankful for before we dig in. But what about daily gratitude? Do you remember to feel grateful for the mundane things, like grocery shopping? Because thank goodness you have access to an organized store that has fresh, healthy food, and a lot of it. And the money to pay for all that good food. And the working car (or legs!) that got you there on a safe street. And a warm, cozy home where you can store your food and keep it fresh for days. And the physical ability to walk to your car, the mental capacity to get you to and through the store, the strength to pick up all of those grocery bags (thanks CFM!). The list can go on and on. So before you start to complain about the traffic, or the idiot that cut you off, or the lady standing in front of you paying with a check…take a deep breath and smile. Because you’re alive. And while even that is beyond our control, we can be thankful for every day we have here. Starting now. A good way to start your daily gratitude? Start a list. Add three things every day that you’re grateful for. They can be little things that made you smile throughout the day, they can be big things that you don’t want to take for granted. Heck, you don’t even need to write them down. Think of something before you get out of bed in the morning. Be grateful for the simple fact that your eyes opened again. And remember to give your loved ones a hug/call/high five when you think of them. Tell that person you’re sorry. Release the grudge from ten years ago. Don’t assume there’s a later, or tomorrow, or next week. Live now. And be grateful for today.

Schedule updatesEffective immediately, the Tuesday 8p class will now be Open Gym (apparently the 8p Tues time slot is unpopular w our advanced athletes :)). Join Lis for skillwork, strength work, to make up a recent WOD, or do another workout of your choosing. Other open gym sessions continue on Wed nights at 8p with Raul & Sundays 1-2p with Dyer. The coach on duty is there to help you with whatever you choose OR we can give you some ideas! 8AM CLASSES will continue through the end of the month on TUESDAYS & FRIDAYS only. Attendance average is currently TWO in those classes… it needs to be 3+ to stay on the schedule. So if you like it, GET TO IT! REMINDER that yoga classes are included in your membership, and do not count toward your weekly class limits. So join Samantha Thursdays at 8:15p and Monica Sundays at 6p to get some great mobility & stretching, as well as balance & meditation work! And speaking of yoga… Yoga and YOUBy Coach Amy (did you know she’s also a certified yoga instructor???) Balancing the role of CrossFit coach and yoga instructor gets tricky sometimes. I try not to get too preachy about how and why yoga can benefit your body AND your movements (especially in an overhead squat!) so luckily I came across this blog post that will preach at you for me. Yay! Specific mobility work, like from the posters on the wall behind the rowers (yeah, those things) is always good. But just like when we’re on our own to choose what to do, we do what we know we’re good at and we avoid what we’re not. You know you do it. You check the blog the night before, see burpees, and skip the WOD. We’ve all done it. But rarely is a yoga class itinerary posted; you just gotta show up and let go. So, my less-than-zen friends, my challenge to you is this: for the next month, double your yoga intake. Hit the CFM classes on Thurs & Sun nights! And if you’re a regular yogi but just do power classes, try something different. Restorative. Gentle. Yin. Something! Heck, I’ll even come to the gym and show you some stuff. Like the article says, understand the importance of doing what you suck at. And if that’s yoga, lay out your mat and just breathe.
