FireTeam 7
Saturday, August 13th

More information here.

In the military the smallest unit is the fire team – a 4 person unit. On occasion, such as with a sniper pair or swim pair, special forces units will even deploy in pairs. But in either case, always operating as part of a greater effort. FTX stands for Final Training eXercise, which in the military are field tests to see if a unit is ready for deployment or Mission Ready. In that spirit, FTX CrossFit is holding its 7th Annual FireTeam Competition and Fundraiser on Saturday, August 13th for 4 person FireTeams (MMFF). Come together as a community for a greater cause to help soldiers and their families that have suffered injuries or other hardship serving our country and see if your FireTeam is Mission Ready. Part of the proceeds will go to the SEAL Legacy Foundation. More details and registration information to come. For now, mark your calendars!

We hope you get to enjoy the longest day of the year this week on Wednesday, June 21 where the Summer Solstice will happen at 4:14 am. We start this week of long days with a nice long benchmark – Angie. Tuesday will be a 5 rounder for time of jump rope and DB OH Lunges. Wednesday is another benchmark – Nancy. Thursday is a death by Echo Bike WOD. Friday is a longer chipper w/ Rowing, Thrusters, and Pull-ups. Friday is long 30-minute AMRAP of Back Squats, T2Bs, Push-ups, and Shuttle Runs. Longer workouts for longer days. Enjoy!

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 at FTX or your home. If this is your situation, then please reach out to us so we can get you all setup!

Starting in mid-July you will see FTX via Wodify have a new programming section for Home/Travel WODs. Use this for days you can’t get to FTX. These WODs will require minimal to no equipment.
