In the military the smallest unit is the fire team – a 4 person unit. On occasion, such as with a sniper pair or swim pair, special forces units will even deploy in pairs. But in either case, always operating as part of a greater effort. FTX stands for Final Training eXercise, which in the military are field tests to see if a unit is ready for deployment or Mission Ready. In that spirit, FTX CrossFit is holding its 7th Annual FireTeam Competition and Fundraiser on Saturday, August 13th for 4 person FireTeams (MMFF). Come together as a community for a greater cause to help soldiers and their families that have suffered injuries or other hardship serving our country and see if your FireTeam is Mission Ready. Part of the proceeds will go to the SEAL Legacy Foundation. More details and registration information to come. For now, mark your calendars!

Friday – Deadlift

Monday’s WOD is a combination of a for time and an AMRAP WOD involving rowing and Turkish Get-ups. It’ll be a great workout. Tuesday will hit you with a 9-minute AMRAP of C&J, Ab-wheel rollouts, and ring rows. Wednesday is a 5 round couplet of KBS and jumping.

FTX Rates

As of 7/1/22 our membership rate and 10-packs will go from $175 to $185. Discount %s will remain the same for all current customers. The new rates are effective immediately for new incoming members and all future purchases of 10-packs.
Raising rates is not something we want to do. As any business must do given the current economic reality, we have to account for the unprecedented level of inflation. These economic factors are not our doing, and we cannot ignore them. To be the best FTX possible, to maintain our facilities, retain the best coaches, and adequately cover expenses, we need to increase our rates accordingly. We are by no means in a unique position as all businesses are currently having to adjust their pricing.
On the other hand, remember that if you’ve been a member at FTX for 6 months or more and you become unemployed, your membership is free for up to 6 months or until you regain employment. Also, if you are or you know of a member experiencing economic hardship, let us know so that we can come together as a community and help.

Overview of our programming this week

On to week 2 of our second 3 week cycle of the banded work followed later in the week by heavier lifts. If you did the first 3 week cycle with us, then you should be calculating everything off of a theoretical 1RM that +5-10 lbs. heavier than what you were working with on the last cycle.

Monday – None
Tuesday – Banded Bench Press
Wednesday – Banded Front Squats & Deadlifts
Thursday – Back Squat
Friday – Push Press

We hope everyone had a chance to do Murph over the weekend and that you’ve had a chance to recover. On Monday we are closed, but we’ve posted two running options for you to do at home or at a park. Log your scores in Wodify for a chance at some prizes! Tuesday we are doing the quintessential CrossFit benchmark Fran. Wednesday is a couplet of Devil’s Presses and Scotty Bob’s preceded by a row buy-in and concluded with a jump rope cash-out. Thursday is a 13:00 AMRAP of T2B, Box Jumps and Ft. Squats. Friday is a partner EMOM of snatches and burpees. Saturday is a long AMRAP of running, deadlifts and K2E.

This week you will go a little heavier and/or do more reps depending on the exercise. During the second half of the week, you will see snatch, push press, and deadlifts where you work up to your 1RM. This cycle will provide a comprehensive, multi-prong approach to gains!

Friday –Deadlift

On Monday you’ll partner-up and tackle a 16-minute AMRAP of step-ups, wall-walks and ab-rollouts. On Tuesday you will do an descending and ascending ladder of farmer’s carry and 8-ct body-builders. Wednesday’s WOD uses a bit of a unique format to get you to do all the cardio movements and a variety of bodyweight exercises.

FTX Rates

As of 7/1/22 our membership rate and 10-packs will go from $175 to $185. Discount %s will remain the same for all current customers. These new rates will be effective 6/1/22 for new members.
Raising rates is not something we want to do. As any business must do given the current economic reality, we have to account for the unprecedented level of inflation. These economic factors are not our doing, and we cannot ignore them. To maintain our facilities, retain the best coaches, and adequately cover expenses, we need to increase our rates accordingly. We are by no means in a unique position as all businesses are currently having to adjust their pricing.

Overview of our programming this week

This week we start a new strength cycle. During the first half of the week, we will do short sets with little rest of front squats, deadlifts and bench press using bands. This will give us a very different stimulus where the resistance increases towards the top of the lift. Furthermore, the bands will also further stress our balancing and opposing muscles involved in each of these lifts. During the second half of the week, you will see back squats, presses, and deadlifts where you work up to your 1RM. This cycle will provide a comprehensive, multi-prong approach to gains!

Monday – Banded Front Squats and Deadlifts
Tuesday – Banded Bench Press
Wednesday – Cleans
Thursday – Back Squat
Friday –Shoulder Press

Monday’s WOD will work the legs and core with lunges and V-ups. Tuesday is a 20:00 AMRAP triplet of snatches, burpee box jump-overs and running. Wednesday is an ascending and descending ladder of S2O and pull-ups. Thursday is a fast triplet of Scotty Bobs, Jumping Jacks and Flutter Kicks. Friday will be a no measure day focusing on shoulder and core work. Saturday is the HYROX Physical Fitness Test. Enjoy this week!

The 2022 CrossFit Open is over! It was great to see all the effort and camaraderie. A special thank you to all those that put it all on the line during our Friday Night Lights. Fun to see everyone come out and participate. This week we go back to our regular scheduled programming. 😊 The next 3 weeks of strength are back to our standard power lifting movements.

Monday – Back Squat
Tuesday – Shoulder Press
Thursday – Deadlift
Friday – Bench Press

Monday is an EMOM with power cleans, thrusters and push jerks. Tuesday is a short WOD of bear crawling and climbing ropes.

You’ll finish Wednesday’s WOD with a buy-out of a Farmer’s Carry. Thursday is a quick 5 round couplet of 8-ct body-builders and ab roll-outs. Friday’s Tabata will have you Rowing, Snatching and Lunging. Saturday is the “Hotshots 19” Hero WOD.

As we’ve done the last two weeks, even though the WOD will be released on Thursday, we’ll run 22.3 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Friday Night Lights

Come again this Friday @ 6:30 pm to the party.

We again had a great turnout for our Friday Night Lights. Let’s make this last one for 22.3 be even bigger. Come and cheer on the ladies, as they will be doing this one.

Our point grab for the team challenge this week is everyone’s favorite – Burpees! During the week, just add whatever number of burpees you do outside of classes to the board. This is still an honor system competition, so just add your burpees to the board.

For this last Friday Night Lights we will be doing a different fun game and a challenge like the other weeks. Hint: Come hang around for a bit on Friday.

We are looking forward to seeing you all on Friday, March 11th!

We will be open one final time from 2:30pm – 3:30pm on Sundays 3/13 to judge 22.3. If you are not doing the CrossFit Open, you can still come in on Sunday and do Open Box.

Overview of our programming this week

It’s the final week of the 2022 CrossFit Open. 22.3 will be our primary workout for Friday through Sunday. We will have an alternate workout for Saturday for those that did the Open workout on Friday and want something different. Here is our strength/skill-work line-up for the week:

Monday – Wtd. Sit-ups
Tuesday – Bench Press & Banded Tricep Extensions
Wednesday

Thursday – Cleans Skill-work

We start the week off with a 3 person team (solo version also available) of a workout consisting mostly of cardio and bodyweight movements.

Wednesday is a quick couplet of Devil’s Presses and C-Crunches. On Thursday we are doing another IWT, but this time with Cleans.

CrossFit Open at FTX

22.1 is done! We go into week 2 and are looking forward to 22.2 being announced this Thursday, March 3rd.
Remember that though the WODs are released on Thursdays, we’ll run them on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Friday Night Lights

Come again this Friday @ 6:30 pm to the party.

What a great first week! It was amazing to see everybody on Friday evening at Friday Night Lights. A BIG THANK YOU to our Masters and Teen athletes who really put the hammer down on 22.1!

This week we have a unique little point grab for the team challenge. During the week, we will be competing at…(drum roll please)…Fish Game! That’s right. Whatever score you get during the Fish Game ON THE ROWER, just add that to the board. Our scores will look a lot higher this week, but the rules are the same. You can’t gain points during coach led warm-ups or workouts, but anytime outside of that (while at the gym of course) play away! This is still an honor system competition, so just add each game score to the board.

For Friday Night Lights we will be doing our favorite kid’s game, Jack Be Nimble, Jack Be Quick. In 1:00 perform 10-yard Shuttle Runs to collect 5 blocks and place them in a bucket. After all the blocks are collected do as many hops over a PVC pipe on 16″ boxes. 

Lastly, for a bit of additional competitive fun, you can balance a PVC pipe in the palm of your hand for time. We will give you 5 seconds to begin your balance, and then the timer starts from there. points will be awarded to teams based on length of time.

We are looking forward to seeing you all on Friday, March 4th!

We will be open from 2:30pm – 3:30pm on Sundays to judge the Open WODs. If you are not doing the CrossFit Open, you can still come in on Sunday and do Open Box. On Saturdays we will have an alternate WOD available in addition to the Open WOD of the week.

Overview of our programming this week

We are going into the second week of the 2022 CrossFit Open. 22.2 will be our primary workout for Friday through Sunday. We will have an alternate workout for Saturday for those that did the Open workout on Friday and want something different.

Monday – Bench Press
Tuesday – Pull-ups & Max. Height Box Jumps
Wednesday
– Pistols Skill-work
Thursday – Snatch Skill-work

Monday’s workout has a D/U buy-in to give you the opportunity to work on those as they surely will still show up in either 22.2 or 22.3. The rest of that WOD is a triplet of SDHP, Burpees and T2B. Tuesday is “Grace”. Wednesday is a longer 25 minute AMRAP w/ rowing, lunges/pistols, Scotty Bob’s and Indian (Atomic) Sit-ups.

January Review

FTX members take challenges seriously! It was so much fun to see all the participation and hard work. In our January Challenge, there were over 120 PRs, over 60 extra cardio efforts (5k row/ski, 12k bike, or 100 burpees), over 47 Burn! classes and over 36 hours of extra skill or flexibility work completed! Awesome and well done!

56 people participated. There were 357 entries with 63 prizes given. Congratulations to all the winners – but you all won with extra fitness!

During January we’ve also seen a lot of new faces. To our new members – Welcome to FTX! To our existing members – Make sure you introduce yourselves and welcome the “newbies” and show them what makes FTX so great, i.e. you all!

Overview of our programming this week

As we go into February we are going include a bit of Open prep in anticipation of the CrossFit Open which starts Thursday February 24th. We will continue with some of the supersets, but we’re continuing with what we started last week having you do them after the WODs. We are throwing in plenty of dumbbell work as it will surely show up in the Open, but also because dumbbell work is excellent training on multiple levels. You don’t want to only use barbells for strength work. Part of continued hypertrophy is constantly challenging the muscles in new and varied ways. Here is our strength/skillwork lineup for the week.

Monday – SA DB High Pulls + SA DB Press
Wednesday
– Lunges + Hip/Back Extensions
Thursday – Snatch  and Snatch Balance
Friday – DB Bench Press + Skull Crushers

Each week until the Open we will revisit some prior Open WODs. This week we are doing 19.1 on Wednesday. We are preceding this on Tuesday with a no measure WOD so that you can come at 19.1 with plenty of energy. Monday’s WOD consists of a good dose of Thrusters and jump rope. We can pretty much guarantee that those movements will show up during this year’s Open. Thursday’s WOD will get you jumping and doing plenty of pull-ups. Friday is cardio combo at medium weight of legs and body wt. movements. Saturday will hit everything.

FTX Yoga – Unfortunately due to a lack of demand, we’ve cancelled Yoga for the month of February.

FTX Classes – We have the most extensive group class based schedule of any facility in the area. See our schedule here – https://ftxcrossfit.com/schedule/.

FTX Kids’ Classes – We have classes for 8-13 year-olds Tuesday through Friday at 4:30pm.

Overview of our programming this week

This week we continue with some of the supersets on 3 of the days, but we’re varying it by having you do them after the WODs. We hope you’re enjoying these more non-traditional lifts.

Monday – Bulgarian Split Squats + Core work
Wednesday
– Lunges or Pistols + Piston Presses
Thursday – Bent-over Rows + Hammer Curls
Friday – Back Squats

Wednesday is a medium-heavy couplet WOD with cleans and pull-ups. Thursday is a medium-heavy workout consisting of deadlifts and thrusters mixed in with rowing and burpees. Friday’s WOD alternates between Push-jerks and lunges with K2E in between. Saturday is a fun and challenging team WOD involving movements that all involve medicine balls.

FTX Yoga – Unfortunately due to a lack of demand, we need to cancel Yoga as of 2/1/22. This week on Tuesday 2/25 we will have an SMR/Yoga/Flexibility class from 7:30pm – 8:30pm led by coach Carol.

Overview of our programming this week

Hopefully you all have enjoyed and benefitted from our weeks of super-setting various strength and skill movements. For this next week only about ½ the days have strength/skillwork. Our focus this week is on some longer workouts and core. We’re going to ensure all you FTXers have abs of steel!

Tuesday – Snatch
Wednesday – Front Squat
Friday – Clean

We start Monday with a classic Benchmark – Angie. We have 3 options for you on this workout to best ensure the right stimulus for your training. Tuesday’s WOD will ensure your glutes are not neglected this week. Enjoy those lunges! Wednesday is another classic Benchmark – Elizabeth. It’s a shorter WOD which will give us plenty of time to do those front squats, which in combination with Tuesday’s WOD will ensure we get the quads and glutes into hypertrophy beast mode. On Thursday, one part will hit the core hard, and the other part involves a lot of the Assault Bike. Do we need to say more? For Friday think “Rowing Fran”. Saturday is a longer 30-minute full-body workout.

Overview of our programming this week

We have another slightly shortened workout week with New Year’s. Let’s start by talking about the end of the week, which consist of our traditional year-end WODs: The Seven, Brehm and the CrossFit Open 12.1 WOD. The latter is for New Year’s Day at home.

Our Strength/Skill for Monday through Wednesday is Shoulders/Push Press, DB Lunges and Rows + Curls respectively.

Monday and Wednesday’s WODs are shorter triplets with lighter weights. These are both designed for people to go all out as far as speed goes given their aerobic capacity. Tuesday is a descending ladder of hang snatches and burpees with an EMOM interruption of squats.

Overview of our programming this week
We hope everyone enjoyed last week’s WODs with their friends and family. It was great to see so many new faces at FTX. This week’s strength program is pretty varied as per CrossFit’s principle of “constantly varied”, but they complement well what we’ve been working on over the past few weeks. The workouts are a bit on the longer side this week and also involve more movements than usual. We will definitely be hitting all the muscles in the body in various way via chippers, AMRAPs, interval training and more.

Monday = Squat Cleans & Front Squats / Tuesday = Bent Over Rows / Thursday = Snatch / Friday = Bench Press
