Week of May 11 – 16

May 11th, 2020

FTX is closed this week, but we continue with our #FTXHomeWOD schedule. Members should have received our Week 8 email outlining our full program.

A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
– Ecclesiastes 4:12

We are not meant to go it alone. Isolation weakens us. We are stronger together. Going into the 8th week of these stay-at-home orders is a real challenge. If you are like many, where the days and weeks are now blurring together and it feels strange to be outside or around others, then we encourage you to take proactive steps to counter that. Connect with others as best as possible. Our park WODs are a great option. This week we have also programmed a Partner WOD for 8F! See the video and the Wodify description of 8F for details.

Our #FTXHomeWOD workouts can be seen on Wodify and on the weekly member email. If anyone is not receiving the emails or doesn’t know how to access Wodify, please contact us. This next week consists of 6 WODs that can be done in any order (8A-8F), though we will be doing them in order at the park. Each week we program accessory work on top of our regular WODs. This also can be accessed via Wodify. If you are going to do the accessory work this week, then we do suggest that you follow the WODs in order.

Here are your options for working out with us this week:

Zoom CrossFit Classes – These will be MWF at 6:30am in both Zoom. We will have a 5:30pm Zoom class as an alternate to the Park WOD if it rains and we are unable to have the 4:30pm and 5:30pm Park WODs on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. These Zoom classes are complete 1 hour classes. Even if you will not do the WOD, you are encouraged to join to cheer or simply say “hello”. We all miss seeing each other, and this at least is one way to still connect. The first and last 5-10 minutes of these Zoom CrossFit classes will be reserved for “chit-chat” 😊. So join us! The Zoom meeting ID # will be listed on Wodify.

Zoom Yoga Classes – These will be TTh at 6:00pm. Wanaki Shores-Navata is our yoga instructor! The Zoom meeting number will be listed in Wodify under the workout description for the Yoga program. See this video on how to do it – https://youtu.be/_pqFys3QGmU
We have Yoga Blocks and Straps you can borrow as needed. Contact us to get those.

Park WODs – This week will will meet M-F at 10am, 12:15pm, 4:30pm and 5:30pm. On Saturday we will meet at 10am.
The default this week is we are having the classes unless it is raining. We will still meet if it’s a drizzle under the pavilion. Check on the Wodify class schedule. If we cancel a class due to the weather, it will say “cancelled” for that class. Classes that will be at the park will be listed as such – “Park WOD”. We will be doing the WODs in order at the park, i.e. Monday = 8A, Tuesday = 8B and so on. Parks are open. Citizens are encouraged to exercise outdoors. But of course we have to abide by the social distancing guidelines and park rules. We want to be a good example to our community and do our part in this whole pandemic.
