Week of May 18 through 23

May 17th, 2020

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. – Isaiah 40:31

Do not grow weary! We will march ahead with strength. This past week we got the permission to begin working out in our parking lot. We can have 10 members and 1 trainer there per class. At this time, we are not allowed to “provide” the equipment. This means you must bring your equipment or the equipment you checked out from us. It also means having to register for the classes in Wodify. And we cannot have you entering the building. See Wodify and our weekly email for information on all our classes and everything else we are doing. As of today, Sunday the 17th, we were informed that this might be short-lived. Various governmental agencies are in play here and are receiving conflicting information. We have been working closely with the City of Wheaton since day 1. Unless we hear otherwise, we will have to fully close again as of next Saturday, May 23rd. We know this is frustrating. The whole situation right now is very much in flux. At least for this week, it seems we will be able to enjoy WODs in our parking lot.

Our approach at FTX is one of trying to balance the needs of all our members. Our goal is to provide all of you with as many options as possible so you can best continue to work-out and connect with other members given your situation. If there is anything we can do better to meet your needs, do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to serve you!

This is our 9th Week of #FTXHomeWOD programming. We start off the week with another fun Deck O Cards WOD. From there we will do our first repeat WOD during this whole #FTXHomeWOD time. We go back to day 1 and repeat the FTX KB FGB, which is a great WOD we’ve done for years now. 9C gets you running but pay attention to how this one is score as it takes a bit of strategy. 9D is no measure and attempts to simulate strength work. 9E is a partner WOD, and this week’s prizes are tied to this one! And we finish off the week with a WOD where we are going to attempt to get you all to go a little heavier with limited equipment. Have fun and get some great workouts in!
