  • A bit late - I was in a Zen state...

    Hello! Another week and weekend done. Here are your weekly updates:

    OLY Technique starts in 9 days! We have just one spot left, so if you want to get in on this round of classes, let a coach know ASAP and claim that spot!


    Yoga started this last week and people are loving it! Make an effort to get into a class this week and get your zen (and strength and flexibility) on too! Your options: Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., Thursday at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

    We had such a great time at our last paddleboarding event, we decided to do our end-of-summer BBQ with some morning boarding! Paddleboarding will be Sunday, September 17th from 10:00-12:00 a.m. back out at the gravel pond (Chatfield State Reservoir) again. Cost to paddleboard is $25/person. Post boarding we will be BBQ-ing. We will have our Redstone tent & banner up as well as some corn hole & spike ball. If you do not want to paddleboard, no worries - come & hang out! This is a pot luck style BBQ so bring your favorite dish!

             

  • What to look for this week...

    On Saturday we headed over to Redstone Park for the Saturday morning WODs - fresh air does the body good!

    Thursday at 7:00 pm
    Sunday at 9:30 am and again at 11:00 am

    Bring a friend, family member, neighbor, etc... to any yoga class this week for free! Or tell them to come on their own - they are more than welcome.

    OLY Technique starts August 16th
    We have 3 spots remaining, so get your name on that list before it's too late!

    Congratulations on completing July's wallball challenge! You finished strong this week with well over the 2,000 wallball goal. We should have your keg prize ready to go soon - stay tuned!



    Pricing changes: RXbars are down to $2.00 each! We also have a new pre- or post- WOD beverage - Formula O2 - selling for $3.00.



    It was a dynamic shoulder mobility movement! No really...

  • Yoga, OLY Technique, and More!

    Yoga! Redstone Crossfit will start offering yoga classes on August 1st. We are very excited to introduce Jessica - an instructor certified through CorePower Yoga - who will be teaching 1-hour yoga classes on Tuesdays at 10:30 am, Thursdays at 7:00 pm, and Sundays at 9:30 am and 11:00 am. Definitely make the time to check out this new class! It's fun!


    As mentioned in last week's posting, a new series of OLY Technique classes will be starting on August 16th. Classes will be weekly on Wednesday's and Friday's at 6 p.m. for 8 weeks. The course is limited to the first 6 athletes who sign up so that everyone can truly get individualized coaching (the sign up list is located on the gym chalkboard!). Cost is $100 for members and $150 for non-RCF members and includes an Oly Club t-shirt. Completing this program is the only way to join the Redstone Crossfit Oly Club. Everyone in the last 8-week course had some awesome PRs and improved their lifting technique and mobility substantially! Sign-up at the gym to claim your spot!


    On Saturday we had an amazing time at Chatfield State Park. The paddleboarding event included a WOD during which we performed squats, push-ups, burpees (!), and lunges on the board and then, of course, did some paddling! Afterwards we had plenty of time to practice some paddleboard yoga moves, 'paddleboard jousting,' and simply laying around on the boards enjoying the day. Thank you to everyone who came out!


    This next week will conclude the July wallball challenge. You managed to complete 1,500 wallballs this last week - but barely! Grab another member at your WODs this week and get a wallball medley going! 2,000 wallballs to go! If you manage this feat, we will provide a keg of beer for all (*21+ years old) to enjoy!


  • New addition to the RCF family! (and other updates...)


    Our July wallball challenge continues this week with a number you have not yet reached - 1,500 Rx+ wallballs this week! Go get 'em!

    This Saturday (July 22nd, 8-10 a.m.), we're heading to Chatfield Reservoir for some paddleboarding! If you signed up and paid your fee for the paddleboard, you're all set! If you forgot to get in on that early and can get your hands on a paddleboard, come out and join us! If you just want to come hang out, that sounds great too! Contact Cindy if you have any questions.

    Our next Olympic Lifting Technique class is scheduled to start on August 16th. Classes will be weekly on Wednesday's and Friday's at 6 p.m. for 8 weeks. The course is limited to the first 6 athletes who sign up so that everyone can truly get individualized coaching. Cost is $100 for members and $150 for non-RCF members and includes an Oly Club t-shirt. Completing this program is the only way to join the Redstone CrossFit Oly Club. Everyone in the last 8-week course had some awesome PRs and improved their lifting technique and mobility substantially! Sign-up at the gym to claim your spot!


    You missed out if you didn't make it out to Redstone Park this last Saturday! We had a great time playing Spikeball and Cornhole. Beach was the champion of the cornhole tournament!

    Shout-Outs: Welcome to the world baby Beach! Jason, his wife, and son welcomed their baby boy into the world on Wednesday morning. Congratulations and welcome to RCF Jameson!



  • This week at Redstone Crossfit...

    On Saturday we hosted a WOD at Red Rocks Amphitheatre - nothing like a morning workout with a fabulous view!


    This coming week at Redstone Crossfit...

    We're in week 2 of our July wallball challenge! So that means the ante has been upped and we need to complete 1,000 wallballs!!! Today during open gym, these charming gentlemen got us started with 200 wallballs - 800 to go!


    This weekend, come join us for a Spikeball Tournament at Redstone Park! The event starts at 3pm and will run until about 6pm.

    And finally, your coaches and owners did those 58 burpees you ordered up during the June running challenge! Charles (who racked up quite a few of those miles) really enjoyed starting the clock and relaxing back, cold beer in his hand, to watch this event!

     

    Shout-out to Adam and Brita who very recently got engaged! 

    Congratulations to you both!


  • July 4th and Challenge

    Hello everyone! Here is your weekly rundown of gym events:


    On July 4th we will host open gym time from 8am - 10am, so stop on by to get your Crossfit on! If we don't see you - Have a happy 4th of July!

    July Challenge

    You all did an amazing job with the June running challenge so we've decided to keep the challenges coming - for July, it's WALLBALLS!!! Each week we are setting a goal for total wallballs done (wallballs done during workouts do not count). For week 1, it is 500 wallballs at 30 pounds for men and 20 pounds for women. For week 2, it's 1,000 wallballs at 30/20#. For week 3, it's 1,500 wallballs at 30/20#. (See the trend?) And for week 4, its 2,000 wallballs at 30/20#! Hit up your coach to do some wallballs with you - their contributions will count towards the total in this challenge!

    And in case you are wondering what happened to the burpees you ran for in the June running challenge, you ran 158,000 m in June, meaning each of your coaches and gym owners owe you 58 burpees! This will be done on Friday after the 5 pm class and before we head over to Living the Dream for gym happy hour!


    Happy Hour: Please come join us for drinks at Living the Dream this Friday, July 7th, from 6 pm-8pm! It's a time to kick back and relax with your gym community!

    OLY Technique class: We will be running another 8-week Oly course starting in August. We will provide specific dates and a sign-up in the next few weeks.


    Shout-Outs!!! Congrats to the last Oly technique class for all of your impressive PRs! We've enjoyed seeing your lifting maxes go up, up, UP! Also way to go Zach and Lizzie - Zach did a bar muscle-up for the first time (on his first try!) this last week and Lizzie kicked up into a handstand on the wall for the first time! Keep it up Redstonians!
