Publish on Comments(0)

Bring-A-Toy….Break A Sweat!
Join us for our annual Gift Drive & Free Workout Day! This year we’re working to benefit Toys For Tots Boston! Anyone can attend class on this day, whether you’re a current member or not! ALL Fitness levels are welcome and the workout will be beginner friendly. Class is free, we just ask that you bring a new and unwrapped toy to benefit Toys For Tots!! Don’t miss out the event is THIS SATURDAY December 13th. Come on in and break a sweat for a great cause!

If you’re not able to make it Saturday we will be accepting donations through Monday 12/13! The community here has always been great about contributing to our gift drives in the past and it’s greatly appreciated! We’re excited to be collecting for Toys For Tots this year! In 2020 they were able to distribute 93,572 toys and supported 61,538 children in the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk and Northern Plymouth!

“Our mission is to collect and distribute NEW, unwrapped toys as Christmas gifts to those children less fortunate in the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, and Northern Plymouth. For the last 73 years, the United States Marine Corps Reserve has distributed over 542 million toys to more than 250 million children. This success stems from great partners, sponsors, and volunteers that help us raise funds and toy donations. Without your help, this program would not be a success!”

Knees to elbows are frequently used as a scaling option for Toes to Bar. When executed correctly, they can be harder than Toes To Bar! The biggest challenge is getting your elbows to actually make contact with your knees, which are small surface areas and to achieve this it requires strength and accuracy to hit. Below are a few key points to help with this movement

•Keep your arch position of the kip swing long and legs together tight.
•Press down on the pull up bar to come into the hollow of your kip swing and to move your hips behind the bar.
•Draw the knees up and in towards the elbows.
•Actively drive your elbows towards your knees.
•Giving a slight bend in the elbow will help to draw your elbows closer to your knees.

Above is coach Sarah showing the RX version along with some challenging scaling options. Knees to triceps and knees to chest

Coach’s Corner – Emily Sackett!

Coach Emily!

Coach’s Corner!
We’re so excited to announce our newest member of The CFS coaching crew – Emily Sackett! Emily has over 5 years of experience with Crossfit. She started here in August of 2020 and she has been a dedicated member ever since. Emily always has such a positive attitude, she’s continually amped up to work hard whether it’s in class or doing extra work. She’s been a great influence on anyone that comes in contact with her and we’re so happy to have her here. Emily will be starting on Friday nights and is currently going through our Intern Program, which we know she’ll crush like everything else she has done here! Check out her Coach’s Corner interview below to learn more about Emily!

Which classes you currently coach?

I will be coaching on Friday nights at 5pm and 6pm.

How many years have you been a CrossFitter and coach?
I started CrossFit in 2016 and have competed in a handful of local team competitions. I have yet to be a coach and am very excited for the opportunity!

What do you think will be your favorite part of being a CrossFit coach?
I am looking forward to finding out! I am excited for the opportunity to teach others about something that I am passionate about.

What is Your Favorite WOD and Movement?
It’s a tough choice, but I’d have to say Diane is my favorite benchmark WOD. And I love any WOD with muscle ups.

Tell us about your athletic background
I played all kinds of sports throughout high school including hockey, soccer and being the only girl on the men’s baseball team. Growing up in Vermont, I spent a lot of my free time hiking, mountain biking, and snowboarding.

Give us a small piece of advice for Newbies and/or Veteran athletes
Always go to the workouts that you think you want to skip! Those are the times where you have the opportunity to become mentally and physically stronger

What’s a “fun fact” most people don’t know about you
I recently became a huge fan of formula one and watch all of the races!

What do you enjoy about the CFS Community?
As someone who has worked out at multiple CrossFit gyms, the community experience you get working out at Southie is unique and the most enjoyable aspect of coming to the gym everyday. Regardless of experience, everyone is welcomed into class by both the coaches and the athletes, and you instantly feel like your part of a team.
