The challenge winner: Erin!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I’m sure everyone knows by now that Erin crushed and won the gym challenge.  We’ve been waiting on getting an “after” picture to post up here!  Erin was the most disciplined person in the entire gym when it came to diet and the points tracking.  She did not cheat once during the entire 5 weeks.  That means no sweets, no booze, no missing workouts.  DISCIPLINE is in her blood!  She kicked butt on the benchmark and had a 27% improvement!  She also had a 6% decrease in body fat (20% less than when she started).  Erin is an inspiration to everyone at CrossFit Coronado!

Ladies Boot Camp

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

CrossFit Coronadohas a new class just for ladies.  Classes will be Tuesday/Thursday from 10-11.  Current members (ladies only) are welcome to attend for no additional cost.  Cost for everyone else is $100/month or $20/class.  Kids are always welcome at CrossFit Coronado.  We will have an area sectioned off for them to play.  We are not able to provide formal childcare due to insurance restrictions so you will need to keep an eye out for them and intervene if necessary.  You can always incorporate kids into the workout too! Squatting with a moving baby is a lot more difficult than it looks!  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Nutrition/Fitness Challenge officially starts Sunday, June 2 – Are you in?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Our summer nutrition/fitness challenge starts this weekend!  You can still join in the friendly fun and get in better shape.  Challenge is from June 2 – July 3.  There is a point tracking system keeping you accountable for eating right, NOT cheating with non-paleo foods, drinking water, and exercising.  We are also tracking % change in body fat and performance improvement on a benchmark WOD (rowing/running, deadlifts and box jumps/step ups).  The buy in is only $20 and the winner gets $$$, free Pete’s Paleo food, and PRIDE (you can’t beat those bragging rights)!  Email us if you want in so we can get you set up and get you the point tracking form.  If you were at the nutrition refresher today and put your name in the sign up sheet but did  not get an email from us this evening, please email us ASAP so we can get you all the extra info.

Please vote on new shirt designs and a zip up hoodie

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

We have been toying around with new shirt ideas and want input from our members.  We are planning to have a fourth of July shirt out in time for everyone to represent during Coronado’s most celebrated holiday!  We also have two samples for a new shirt with our logo and a zip up hoodie sample.  Please comment below with the number (patriotic shirt) and letter (fireball shirt) that you like the best.  Also, please indicate tank or t-shirt.  We may have options for both but want to know where the majority interest is.  These shirts will likely not be stocked at CFC.  We will have them available for pre-order soon so please stay tuned if you’re interested.  On the hoodie, please let us know what color sweatshirt you think would be best.  Considering a slate blue color with white writing but that is up for negotiation.  Commenting below does not mean you’re ordering a shirt, it just means you’re helping us decided which one we take to print.  Thanks for your input!
