Supervised Childcare Starting June 9th!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Moms (and dads) have been asking about this for a while and we’re excited to announce that starting June 9th we will be offering supervised childcare during the 09:30 class on Monday/Wednesday/Friday.  We will have an adult that has completed a background check, is certified in adult, child and infant CPR, and well known by our CFC owners and coaches that will be in the kids area supervising and entertaining your kids during the 09:30 class.  Parents must remain onsite during the class, running around the block is fine but no stops at Tartine 😉  Parents will also still be responsible for taking their children to the bathroom as the adult with the kids will need to stay in the kids area during class.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please email

Nutrition Challenge Spreadsheet

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The nutrition/fitness challenge has officially started!  Today’s WOD, Fight Gone Bad, is the benchmark.  If you make any modifications to the workout today, make sure you record what you changed so that when you redo the WOD in 6 weeks you replicate it and get a true measure of your improvement!

The point sheet is below and you can download and print it if you don’t already have a copy.  Don’t forget it’s a $20 buy-in.  All money collected from the challenge goes right back out to the winners.  Half goes to the winner of the points tracking, and half goes to most improvement on the benchmark WOD.

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Nutrition Challenge “Rules”

Challenge officially starts with point tracking on Monday, May 19 and ends on Sunday, June 29 (midnight)

Meals need to follow stricter paleo guidelines along the lines of Whole 30 with the exception listed below. So, NO sweeteners (honey, maple syrup, agave, etc).

Alcohol of any type (even the purest of tequila) is not allowed and counts as -1. Multiple drinks in one sitting will only be -1 (2 glasses of wine with dinner doesn’t get you -2). Having multiple drinks on one day but not at the same time (beer with lunch and another beer with dinner) will count as -1 for each time (so -2 total for having them at different times).

Desserts are -1

All cheats are -1

There is NO MAXIMUM as to how many cheats you can accrue points for in one day. We advise not cheating though!

Protein powder is ok, we encourage using SFH or another source of grass fed protein powder.

Grass fed dairy is ok (and only grass fed dairy).

Sprouted grains that do NOT contain gluten are allowed in their pure form (no sprouted grain bread).

Zone standards are not required but we encourage you to give it a try!

You get a point extra each day that you drink 64oz of water

You get an extra point for working out each day. You cannot get more than 5 points per week (rest is important)

Benchmark WOD will be the class WOD on Monday 5/19. You may complete it in open gym on Saturday or Sunday or anytime during the first week of the challenge.

Post your weekly points on the poster board at the gym and save your sheet for the end of the competition.

There will be a winner for most points and a winner for most improvement on the benchmark.

Tie breaker will go to the person with the least number of cheats, if there is still a tie then the winner will be the person with the most points for working out.

If you have questions please talk to a coach or email us or text Kim 619-405-7429.

What do you do outside the gym?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

A lot of us at CrossFit Coronado do CrossFit as way to stay in shape so we can do the things we love to do outside the gym.  We always get excited when we hear about our members participating in things in the community.  Check out Kelly doing the SEAL sprint triathlon last weekend.  She finished in 1 hour 39 minutes which made her 6th in her age group!  Kelly you’re awesome and an inspiration!  If anyone’s got a picture of yourself doing something fun outside the gym – hiking, biking, maybe even competitive eating (hey they need to work out too) share them with us!

Paleo Meal Swap Saturday March 29th

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We are bringing back the paleo meal swaps!  It’s an awesome way to try new paleo recipes that someone else cooks for you!  The only catch is you have to cook and provide a meal as well.

The meal swap will be Saturday March 29th at 11am at the gym!

Anne O. is coordinating the meal swap so please email her if you have any questions:

Here are details for how the swap works:

Each person will make one recipe to split into 3 8×8 containers (so you will have to double or triple a recipe).  The meal you make should be a main dish and then whoever gets your meal can make a side dish(s) of their choice.  The meal should fill the container completely.  They should already be cooked and frozen when you bring them to the swap.  Keep 1 pan for yourself and bring the other 2 to swap.

Please include the name and recipe on the lid with a note card or piece of paper.  This will be a great way to swap recipes as well!

The day of the swap we will put the slips of paper with the meal names on them in a basket.  We will go around a circle and everyone will draw once.  Then we will go around a second time until all the meals have been swapped.

If you happen to draw a meal that you brought then you may draw again.  If you get a meal that has an ingredient that you don’t like then you may swap with someone that is willing to swap with you.

You will keep reusing the pans the you got from the previous swap for the next swap.  If the pan happen to wear down in your possession then it is your responsibility to replace it.

We will try out with everyone making 1 meal at this time and if it successful we might up it to 2 meals meaning you would be bring 4 containers.

The first few times will be trial and error.  Please send me any suggestions or ideas you all may have.  I think this could be a lot fun and a great way to help each other out in our diet goals and share recipes.

You are not required to participate in every swap just keep your pans and you can join in an any swap.  Also if you find out that this isn’t really for you, no worries we will understand and you can keep your pans 🙂

The pans are gladware pans can be found here click this link.  They canb be frozen adn reheated in the microwave or oven so they are perfect for what we’re doing.
