Redstone Happenings

  • The Fact of the Matter is....

    The CrossFit Open is HERE!

    This Thursday February 22nd  18.1 will be announced across the globe. Join us for the next 5 weeks of Friday Night Lights starting at 5:00 pm. We currently have 29 people signed up for the Intramural Open. Can we get one more?!

    PR's, PR's, and MORE PR's!

    This week we had members hit PR's. Some even hit two in the same week! Every workout accomplished is a step closer to meeting your personal goals and PR's. Keep up the great work everyone!

    CrossFit is Designed for Everyone

    Whether you have a strong fitness background, spent years in sports, have never picked up a bar-bell, or are just a runner....CrossFit is for you. Have a back problem? We have a scale for that. Have a shoulder problem? We have a scale for that? Have a knee problem? We have a scale for that. Meet our friend and member Janet! Janet is unable to reach full range of motion with 1 knee but with scaling options, Janet is able to get her workout in. Great job, Janet!

    Mind over Matter

    Nobody knows your body better than you. It's important to stay healthy which includes listening to your body. If you have an injury please let a coach know so we can safely work through your workouts.  


  • Football season is over....The CrossFit Open is HERE!

    2018 CrossFit Open Intramural Team Challenge

    This challenge is inclusive and OPEN to every athlete 15 years old and older. There are no prerequisites of any kind in regards of fitness level or strength. This is a great way to get an accurate measure of how your fitness improves from year to year. This is a free event for all participants, if you would like to officially pay and register for the CrossFit Open at https://games.crossfit.com/ you will be able to track your fitness from year to year as well as see where you rank among your age group, region, or in the world. The goal of this Challenge is to promote fun, collaborative competition.

    The OPEN consists of 5 workouts, 1 each week, to be completed on Friday or Saturday. There are scaled and Rx versions of each workout. We would like to encourage everyone to attend our “Friday Night Lights” events every Friday from 5:00pm-7:00pm. This is a great time to test your fitness and cheer on your fellow Redstone Teammates in a super fun, positive community atmosphere. 

    ***CrossFit Open WODs will be programmed for the daily WOD during regular class times on Friday’s, but will only be officially judged 5:00-7:00pm on Friday’s and 8:00-10:00am on Saturday’s. If you want to do the Open WOD at a different time, please note there will not be a coach present for judging***

    *You must sign up for the Intramural Open Team Challenge by Saturday, February 17th 

    *Coaches will divide all participants into 2 teams on Sunday, February 18th

  • Winter is coming...


    Hello Redstonians! Here is your weekly update:

    We are anticipating snow on Thursday! This means we need to remind you of the snow removal policy for our parking lot - if there is snow to be removed, it will be done at 6 a.m. The snow cannot be removed if your car is in the way. So, 5 a.m.'ers - if there is snow on the ground when you arrive for your class (this is most likely to occur on Thursday/Friday this week), please park along the street so that the plow truck can thoroughly scrape the lot. Thank you!


    Christmas Schedule: Redstone CF will not have any classes on Sunday, December 24th or on Monday, December 25th. We will resume our normal schedule on Tuesday, December 26th.


  • Toys for Tots & a Quick Schedule Update

    Another big thank you to everyone who came out for the Naughty or Nice event this past Saturday! With your help, we collected a heaping pile of donations for Toys for Tots. Your generosity always amazes us and we hope you had a good time and got in a great workout!


    Schedule update: Since our 6-week challenge has come to a close, our WOD times are all returning to normal. Here are the changes you should note:

    • Monday/Wednesday/Friday: 9:30 am WOD
    • Monday/Wednesday: 7:00 pm WOD

    We'll see you at the gym this week!
