Week of May 9 – 14

May 8th, 2022

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.
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.

Murph – Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day for many kicks off the summer season, but in the CrossFit world it also means Murph! At FTX we will do Murph on Saturday, May 28th, since we will be closed for the observance of Memorial Day on Monday, May 30th. We will be running the Murph workout during each of our regularly scheduled classes: 8am, 9am, 10am and 11am. We will still have Open Box from 12pm – 1:30pm, and you can of course do Murph on your own during that time as well. Anyone wearing their Fight shirt for Murph can have a free FitAid or Protein Bar.

Overview of our programming this week

We are going into the third week of our new strength cycle. Next week we take a break from this cycle and change things up a bit, but then we will resume for another 3 weeks gradually increasing the weight we use. This week you will go a heavier and/or do more reps depending on the exercise. This cycle will provide a comprehensive, multi-prong approach to gains!

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

On Monday we will do an FTX benchmark that was born during the 2020 shutdowns – “Eddie Van Halen”. Tuesday is a longer EMOM with Wall Walks/Handstand Walks, Rope Climbs, and Jumping Jacks/DU’s. Wednesday is a medium-short couplet consisting of Overhead Squats and Indian Sit-ups. Thursday is a short duo of fast plate G2O combined with a burpee variation. Friday is twist on the benchmark WOD “Karen”. Instead of Wall-balls it’s MBSCs. We finish out the week on Saturday running our Murph-prep WOD in anticipation of doing Murph over the Memorial Day Weekend.
