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!

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!
