More than a workout – Change your life!™

Regular full schedule this week.

Our current strength cycle will take us up to the first week of the Open, focusing on Olympic lifting and gymnastics. We will do Olympic related lifts at least twice a week and regularly practice gymnastics skills.

In addition, most of our WODs during this period will have strength/skill-work after the MetCon. This will have us strength-training under fatigue as it happens within a MetCon, and especially during competitions. This is a reverse of how we usually do it, but this is consistent with the principle of constantly varying things and thereby getting better results by mixing things up. And this should help us better prepare for the Open workouts themselves.

Gymnastics Clinic
Sat, 1/23 & Sat, 2/20

It is time to sign up for FTX’s two-part Gymnastics Clinic led by coach Patrick, which has its first meeting on Saturday, January 23. Participants will learn simple exercises for developing the strength required for gymnastics movements, then leave with four weeks of progressive homework plans to be accomplished alone or with friends. The group will meet again on February 20th to learn the techniques required for various gymnastics movements and leave again with progressive homework to sharpen in those gymnastic skills before the CrossFit Open.

Skills are broken into two courses: Basics and Advanced:

  • The Basics course is for all levels, whether you are working on your first pull-up or preparing for this year’s Murph. Basics covers pull-ups, toes-to-bar, and handstand push-ups. (Meeting time 1:00pm)
  • The Advanced course is for those looking to succeed in movements required to Rx the CrossFit Open workouts. Advanced covers bar muscle-ups, ring muscle-ups, and handstand walks. (Meeting time 2:00pm)

Cost is $75 per person and participation is capped to ensure personal attention. Non-FTX members are welcome but will need access to their own equipment to accomplish the homework.

FTX Kids’ Classes

Our FTX Kids’ schedule is:

  • 2:30pm – 3:30pm – Tuesday and Thursday
  • 4:30pm – 5:30pm – Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

If a given class is full, please do still sign-up and get on the waitlist. First, people do cancel and that way you’ll often still get in. Second, this allows us to see demand and lets us best judge the need for more classes. We want to offer enough classes to ensure all the kids can attend as often as desired.

New Zoom Classes

We have added a whole new capability to FTX! You can now participate in any of our classes via Zoom. With the system we’ve installed it’s almost like you are at FTX.

  • You can see the class as if you had a spot there in-person.
  • We can observe you and coach you. Yes, we’ll make sure you squat low enough!
  • You’ll be able to hear us as if you were there, including our great music selections 😊
  • With this system you’ll be able talk to the coaches and other members.

This is a whole new experience! To participate, please send us an email and we will add a Zoom appointment capability to your Wodify account. It is free and included in your membership. A secure experience is a priority for both those joining via Zoom and those doing the class in-person. We will use unique Zoom IDs and passwords that will be displayed in Wodify in the schedule for the corresponding class time.

CrossFit Open
Coming Thursday, March 11th

This is a three-week worldwide event for all, where we all do one workout per week in this Open competition. It is great for:

  • Setting goals

  • Fun competition
  • Accountability

As with last year, we will again have 3 teams at FTX: Red, Silver and Black! More details on our local FTX component to come. Register for the Open here and be part of the fun!

He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
for all eternity.

FTX Kids Classes – We are looking at adding some Kids’ classes and perhaps doing something more specific for teens within some of our regular CrossFit classes. For Kids we are looking at something in the 2:30pm-4:30pm window on weekdays and 10am on Saturdays. For teens we are considering an extra coach focused on that group during some 3:30pm time slots. We really need to hear from you to evaluate demand and the best time to offer additional classes.

FTX Open – Saturday, November 7th we will host an Open Competition. This consists of 2 events done via video prior to 10/31 and 2 events done at FTX on 11/7. See more information about this competition here – https://ftxcrossfit.com/events/ftxopen/

More than a workout – Change your life!™

We will be closed Labor Day September 7. For those that wan’t to do a workout that day, we suggest a 5K or 10K run! Running is an important component and aspect of fitness. It’s as functional as it gets. We never program a pure run for a workout at FTX, so this is a perfect day for doing that.

Other than Monday, we are operating on a normal schedule with most classes limited to 12 persons. This limitation is due to the number of racks we have, so that we can avoid having people share a rack. We removed this limitation from the 6:30am and 5:30pm classes. Those classes are capped at 20 persons.

We have been updating equipment over the last few weeks ensuring that FTX’s equipment and facility are up to date. We hope you have enjoyed the new SkiErgs, rowers, plates, bars, jump ropes and medicine balls.

Also, get ready for our annual anniversary party – Saturday, October 31st. More details here! It’ll be a fun evening for the whole family!

We are also supporting our members that are in a high-risk category and wanting to come into workout at FTX. If you would like to request a partitioned space to exercise, please send an email to trainer@ftxcrossfit.com by 8 pm the day before you plan on coming. We’ll setup a space so that you will have at least 12’ of social distancing. Also, it is important that you reserve the class time in Wodify as well. In the email request, please include the following information:

  • Class time you will attend
  • What level you will be doing of the WOD so we can set out the right equipment. You can also make requests for any other equipment if you will be doing something different.
  • Any questions you have regarding the workout, including modifications

The trainer will set up a coned off space with all requested equipment by an open doorway. Please understand that if the previous class is full, your space may not be ready before your reservation and may take just a few minutes to setup. We will do our best to get it prepped beforehand.

We are here to serve all our members and to provide the best experience possible for all!

What we are doing to prevent Covid-19

  • Foremost, we are building a stronger and healthier you. Your immune system is your first and best defense. Nutrition, exercise and rest are essential to keeping you healthy. What we do develops a healthier you. Part of rest is reducing stress. We strive for FTX to be a great place to relieve stress. Our goal is to be an oasis for our members.
  • We are continuously cleaning our facilities
  • We ask all members to wash their hands before and after working out.
  • We require any members that are feeling sick or exhibiting any symptoms to say home.
  • We are restricting or significantly limiting the use of any shared equipment.
  • We provide cleaning supplies to wipe down all equipment before and after use.
  • Our floor is marked at 12’+ intervals so people can easily setup their stations and social distance as necessary/desired.
  • Upon request, during our 5:30am, 7:30am, 3:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm classes we will setup 400+ sqft of section of space, with a dedicated entrance and set apart equipment for you to work out.

What we are not doing due to Covid-19

  • Requiring masks.
  • Taking temperatures or any other type of health exam prior to entering our facilities. We trust that anyone feeling sick or experiencing symptoms will stay home.
  • Allowing people to wear masks during the work outs. None of the masks being used have been rated for their O2/CO2 exchange efficiency. Intense exercise requires good, unrestricted breathing.
  • Policing members that may or may not social distance. We trust people to use their best judgement.

Our FTX Kids Program is running again Tuesday – Friday at 4:30pm – 5:30pm. Classes are limited to 6 kids.

We are open and running our full schedule. See it here.
Our training is based on three primary principles:

  • Functional movements
  • Constantly varied
  • High intensity

This week we start on Monday with a very functional couplet involving wall ball shots. The functionality of squatting down, picking up an object and being able to throw it, translates to some many necessary movements in life. On Tuesday we vary this despite it being another couplet by adding the element of jumping while still moving an object from the ground to overhead, but without throwing it. Wednesday is a full body chipper that will tax the oxidative system (cardio). Thursday also hits the full body, but this time through a Tabata interval it targets your glycolitic energy system. Friday goes back to a more cardio like full-body workout. On Saturday we offer two options on our menu: Our obstacle course or a body-weight/light weights FGB style workout. We hope you enjoy this week of programming.

One other critical component to what we do is community. Community supports, encourages and challenges us in our workouts. Our community is also fun and caring. So thankful for everyone at FTX!

I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness,
and you will harvest a crop of love.
Plow up the hard ground of your hearts,
for now is the time to seek the Lord,
that he may come
and shower righteousness upon you.’

           – Hosea 10:12

It has been a long 10 weeks. Thank you to the whole FTX community for your support throughout this challenging time. You all have been awesome. There is a lot happening this week. Most important is that we will be reopening back up this Friday, May 29th. Exactly to what extent remains to be seen, as a lot of things are in flux right now. Please look for details in regards to our schedule in our weekly email and on Wodify.

Tuesday through Thursday we will be doing park WODs at Northside park, but we will also have hours at FTX to accept equipment. Please clean your equipment thoroughly before returning it. All returning their equipment between Tuesday and Thursday will get a free FitAid and be entered into a drawing for a free pair of Nano Xs! Those that will keep sheltering at home can keep their equipment. In fact, once we get back all our equipment, we will be able to get you more equipment as needed. Again, look at our weekly email for details.

We know that many will now be looking to join a gym or seeking a new gym. Please give us a call as we will start working with new people in June!
