FTX Holiday Teen Classes
We are working on be offering a special kids’ session for our early teen age group (ages 13-15) over the Christmas break. There wasn’t enough demand to do it for the week of Thanksgiving. So, if you want to participate in this over the Christmas break, please get in touch with Coach Carol. The idea is for this session to consist of 5 one-hour classes which will cover our Essentials curriculum. Teens will review the 9 foundational movements and more, including gymnastics movements and Olympic lifts, in preparation to joining the adult CrossFit classes. These classes will be held outside of our regular kids’ classes and will be geared specifically to this age group. Regular kids’ class punches will be applied to the program, which means this is a great deal relative to our regular Essentials Program! Please let us know if you are interested in the program by December 1st so we can finalize times and dates. We need to hear from you if you are interested to be able to make this happen.

Mark your calendars

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

FTX Classes – We continue with our full schedule of adult and kids’ classes. 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.

#FTXHomeWODs – We have plenty of gear for those of you that want to do some of these workouts at home, whether that is because of childcare situations, health reasons, schedule conflicts, or whatever. We can loan out all sorts of equipment, including rowers and barbells. We can also do personal training sessions with you in your driveway/yard/garage or via Zoom. If this is your situation, then please reach out to us so we can get you all setup!
If you want to do one of our #FTXHomeWODs and follow one of our videos, then please enjoy the hundreds of videos you can now find available on our FTX CrossFit YouTube channel here.

FTX Rates
As of 1/1/2022 we will increase our rates for all existing recurring members. For new members or purchases of session packs (kids or adults), the new prices are effective immediately. Our new monthly membership rate will be $175. All existing members will keep their current discount %s for which they qualify. See our full list of rates here.
We did not want to raise our rates, but the economic factors of increased equipment/supply costs, taxes and labor costs have forced us to make a modest increase. All our existing members’ pre-paid final month will be treated as if they’d paid $175 vs. any other amount as a way of giving some recognition for your loyalty.
