Week of December 6 – 11

December 5th, 2021

More than a workout – Change your life!™

FTX 12 Days of Christmas Toy Drive
We begin our holiday celebrations on the 1st with one of our 12 Days of Christmas WODs and end it on the 11th (12th is a Sunday) with our other 12 Days of Christmas WOD. This year we are again partnering with the Evangelical Child & Family Agency here in Wheaton to deliver toys to kids in the area. We will have kids’ Christmas wishes on our Christmas tree. We encourage you to grab one and bring some much-needed Christmas cheer to a child.

Christmas Party
We will also have our Christmas Party on that Saturday the 11th at 6pm
It’ll be catered by Portillo’s. We will do our annual White Elephant games for the adults and the kids (12 and under).

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.

Overview of our programming this week

Our strength and skill-work will focus on legs and Oly lifts. Never miss a leg day!
Monday = Back Squats / Tuesday = Clean & Jerk / Wednesday = Rope climbs / Thursday = Tempo Front Squats / Friday = Snatch
We start this week off again with two couplets on Monday (DB Snatches & V-Ups) and Tuesday (Rowing & Thrusters). Wednesday is a chipper with a variety of movements, but it has a catch to make it extra spicy. Thursday is a leg and shoulder crushing chipper. Friday is solid 10:00 triplet. And we finish off the week with our second 12 Days of Christmas WOD!

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!
