Corona Virus (COVID-19) Updates

As everyone knows, things are rapidly changing in San Diego in anticipation of the corona virus and the impact it will have on our community.  

What we’ve already done:

Earlier this week we implemented additional cleaning measures at the gym.  The gym is being mopped and disinfected daily. All coaches are wiping down high touch surfaces during each block of classes (morning, midday and evening).  We have removed community chalk buckets. All toys in the kids room have been cleaned, and the number of toys on hand has been decreased. Members are asked to wipe down every piece of equipment used after every class.  We have made adjustments to programming to limit equipment sharing. 

What we ask going forward:

WASH YOUR HANDS.  All the time. Please wash your hands at home, at work, at the gym, everywhere.  Hand sanitizer works well but hand washing is better. And hand sanitizer isn’t readily available these days.

DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE or your friends! Coronavirus is transmitted but touching a contaminated surface and then touching your mouth/nose/eyes.  Wash your hands before you eat or touch your face. Don’t touch other people. The head nod is a great way to say good job – high fives are on hold for now.  

Wipe down your equipment and floor space.  We ordered more gym wipes this week but were only able to get 2 buckets and they won’t be here until next week.  I have a feeling wipes will be hard to come by here pretty soon so please use them within reason. We also have spray cleaner in the corner by the bands and you can use the towels.  Just make sure to put the used towels in the black dirty towel box.  

Be flexible with workouts.  We are trying to avoid equipment sharing as much as possible.  This may mean not Rxing a WOD or subbing in a run instead of a row.  Please be flexible.

If you have kids and normally use childcare but have the ability to leave your kids home with family members please do so.  We plan to keep childcare open and available for those of you that need it. That being said, if you’re able to adjust your workout times or kids can stay home with their other parent please take advantage of that.  With schools closed we know this will put many of you in a bind. We are here to help.

If you normally attend a class that is on the larger side, consider trying out our evening classes (5 and 6pm are smaller) or coming in during open gym.  We are planning to extend open gym times and will keep you all updated there. You are welcome to bring school age children in with you during open gym to do family workouts.  You’ll need to check in with the coach on duty who can help you create a workout appropriate for you and your kids (this is only during open gym, not regular classes).

Teen classes will carry on as normally scheduled Mon/Wed/Thurs 3:15-4.  If your kids are not part of the teen program and are interested in trying it out let us know.  

Bring your own water bottles.  The drinking fountain isn’t closing…  But please bring your own water bottle already filled.

If you are sick do not come to the gym.  If you have a fever you need to be fever free for 24 hours WITHOUT taking medications.  This goes for any kids you’re bringing to the gym as well. If you have a cough please stay home.  We are happy to provide you some home workouts!

If you need chalk, bring a plastic bag and we’ll give you a piece from a fresh block.  The programming has been adjusted to include more strict movements but if you’re a chalk person bring a bag.

We are in this together:

We aren’t panicking and we don’t want you to either.  There is a lot of information going around social media and it’s hard not to be consumed with it.  We will continue to follow the CDC, WHO and local hospital and government agency guidelines. We are taking all preventative measures we can to help flatten the curve.  If these minor inconveniences can prevent even 1 case of the virus then it’s worth it. We value you and appreciate your understanding and support at this time. If you have concerns please talk to us. 

We will post updates on the website and social media as well as some fun things to keep you all engaged with the gym.


We stand together,

Clint and Kim Russell and the CFC Crew

Forrest Brown

COACH

Forrest Brown grew up in competitive sports; lacrosse, swimming, and cycling were his primary outlets. Upon joining the Navy, he started looking for a more functional way to workout. His first CrossFit class was in 2015 and loved it. With the transient military life, he followed various online programming and formed workouts on his own gaining knowledge on how to appropriately coach himself and friends. Finally in 2018, he was able to settle down and join a gym immediately becoming addicted to the culture CrossFit had to offer. After a move across country and a deployment, he found a home at CrossFit Coronado. With his medical background and passion for fitness, Forrest has a desire to coach others through their CrossFit journey. Currently, he is a Level 1 CrossFit Instructor and attending Point Loma Nazarene for a Pre-Med program.

MIKE MARRIOTT

COACH

Mike came to CrossFit Coronado after a 26-year career in the Marine Corps. Having made fitness a way of life during his time in the Marines, he was searching for a means to maintain an elite level of fitness after he retired from the Corps. Maintaining a regimen of elite fitness was an elusive goal for him until he stumbled upon the back alley garage that is home to CrossFit Coronado. As the 8th original member Mike was at CrossFit Coronado from its very start and adapted to the CrossFit protocol like a duck takes to water. Mike was a devoted and dedicated coach and friend.  Unfortunately he passed away in march, 2018 from pancreatic cancer.  His spirit will always be a part of CrossFit Coronado.  He helped to build and shape this gym into what it is today.  Strong Like Bull.  Semper Fi Sir.

KIMBERLY RUSSELL

Owner

Kimberly started doing CrossFit in 2010.  She quickly realized the awesome benefits of CrossFit and was eager to help Clint when they decided to take over as the owners.  She helps with our teen program and the behind the scenes work that needs to be done.  Kim works part time as an oncology nurse and is a full time to mom to their two little girls. Prior to that, she worked for the City of San Diego for over ten years teaching children of all ages and abilities how to swim and spent three years working as a substitute teacher for kids in grades K-12.  Kim took long-term sub positions teaching high school physical education and middle school science.  After seeing the lack of physical fitness with kids in the school systems, Kim wanted to help set up a teen program to give kids a positive physical outlet aside from school competitive sports.  After having kids and realizing how challenging it is to workout with little ones, she also created a program in the gym to offer childcare so that moms (and dads) can get their workouts in!  Email Kim

CLINT RUSSELL, DPT

OWNER

Clint started as a customer with CrossFit Coronado in October 2008.  He became a trainer in August 2009, and the owner in August 2010.  He has been an athlete since he was young.  Starting with 7 years of gymnastics and martial arts, as well as high school football and track.  In college, he got into endurance running and swimming.  He was first introduced to CrossFit in the military.  A CrossFit athlete is one that is well rounded in all areas of fitness.   It was this, and the fact that there is absolutely no way to duplicate the results that CrossFit produces for the short amount of time the workouts require, that initially hooked Clint.  Clint has personally experienced improvement in every aspect of fitness, with much shorter workout times.  He competed in the SoCal Regionals in 2010 with a team and in 2011 and 2012 as an individual.  Clint thoroughly enjoys helping people reach their goals.  Clint recently completed a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the university of Saint Augustine and is excited to integrate PT into the gym. His goal is to help professionalize the fitness industry and bring educated and safe training to everyone.  Clint enjoys working with everyone, especially people who need more individualized attention or modifications.  If you’re interested in CrossFit Coronado or personal training, email Clint.
