A workout to honor two brave men: Lieutenant Commander Jones and Chief Warrant Officer Gibson

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

candlesAs most of you know, two local families lost two great men this week.  Lt. Commander Landon L. Jones and Chief Warrant Officer Jonathon S. Gibson, members of HSC-6, based on the USS Nimitz, were killed in a helicopter crash in the Red Sea.  Both men leave behind young children and families that will never be able to say their goodbyes.  LCDR Jones never had the opportunity to meet his 6 week old son.  It’s hard to know how to reach out to people at times like this and just what to say.  There never seem to be words that can translate the sentiment that we are all feeling for these families.

We have decided that instead of doing Barbells for Boobs this year, we want to do something to support these families, however big or small that may be.  On Saturday, October 26, we are going to do a workout in their honor.  We will begin at 09:00 with a moment of silence and will have two candles lit for these men.  The gym will stay open as long as we need to allow everyone to show their support the best we know how as a CrossFit community- through sweat, pain, and maybe even tears.  We will accept donations however big or small and make sure that 100% of this money goes directly to these two families to help assist with anything they need.

If you have  any questions or would like to help in any way, please let us know.  We will update this post with more details as they become available.

Please read the following account from LCDR Jones’ wife of this devastating tragedy: http://bangordailynews.com/2013/09/28/living/words-from-a-grieving-widow/

To the Jones and Gibson families, we want to express our deepest sympathies from everyone at CrossFit Coronado.

CFC gun show

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Hi all!  Saturday we will be having our second CFC shooting day.  John is moving east and what better way to bid him farewell than with a shooting trip!  He’s not leaving right away but his guns will be getting packed up and unavailable for a later trip to the range.  We’ll be meeting at the gym at 11:30 (leaving by 12) for anyone wanting to carpool.  The range is  a bit of a trek (South Bay Rod and Gun Club).  Bring ear protection with you and ammo if you’re bringing a gun.  They do NOT sell ammo there.

Breaking Barriers: 8 Week Strength Program

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Brand New Strength Program

Starts Wednesday 14 August



We are starting a brand new Strength program at CrossFit Coronado on Wednesday, 14 August.  This program is open to our CrossFit Coronado members wanting to increase strength and break through to new PRs.  It is a structured program that will have you lifting 4 days a week (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday).  With the exception of Thursday, this program will run during open gym (Wednesday 6pm, Saturday 10am, Sunday 1pm).  There might be a possibility to do Wednesday’s work at 11am – stay tuned.  Thursday the entire gym will do the same WOD during all of the regular classes.  There is no additional cost for this program (awesome)!  However, we do ask that if you are going to do the program you commit to and stick with it.  We will be tracking your progress after each session and making modifications throughout the 8 week cycle as needed.  What we would like for you to establish before Wednesday (if at all possible) is to obtain an accurate 1 rep max for snatch, clean and jerk, front squat and back squat.  If you know a  recent 1RM there’s no need to redo it now.  If you haven’t done a max in a few months try and get a good starting point.  The program will be based on percentages and rather than guess, we’d like you to be as spot on as possible.  If you have questions, please ask.  if you’re ready to commit to becoming just a little bit more awesome (if that’s even possible) email us and claim a spot!
