FireTeam 7 Challenge & Fundraiser
Saturday, August 13th – 8am – 1:30pm w/ Taco Truck party afterwards.

See all the detail and WOD info 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!

Mark your calendars for our “Western” themed party! Bring your cowboy hats, boots, and spurs. Or, just bring yourself and have lots of fun! We will have a water gun game, line dancing, and more for games.

But of course, you all come for the food, and Steamboat BBQ delivers a great meal.

Adults are $15. Kids 5-12 are $10. Children under 5 are free. We will have sign-up sheets later this month at FTX

Overview of our programming this week

In this new cycle, we are switching our focus to heavier Front Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press, and some weighted gymnastic movements that will get us through the end of July. The focus will be on gaining strength and muscle endurance in our drive and pull. Don’t worry; we will have some Olympic lifting mixed into the workouts. Also, we will provide scaling options.

Monday we start with a triplet of Push-presses, T2B and Box Jumps that is 9:00 AMRAP.

Thursday is a long 30+ minute WOD with rowing, jump rope and 8 ct. body-builders. Friday is a 7 round couplet of dips and ab-wheel roll-outs. We close the week with the Hero WOD “Tommy V”.
