Tempo Makes You Better

Dave Does WORK

1-on-1 Movement & Mobility Screenings: Wednesday Nights!
Our daily activities – work, sport and life – cause each of us to move differently. In a world where we frequently sit for long periods of times and produce repetitive movements each day, we are often left with muscular imbalances and mobility limitations. These imbalances and limitations can lead to poor movement mechanics, muscular pain and possible injury.

The first step to correcting these imbalances or limitations is identifying them… and we are here to help! We are excited to be offering one-on-one movement and mobility screenings, free to all of our members. These screenings will not only help you identify any movement or mobility issues you may have, but also provide you with the tools you can use to help correct them.

Coach Matt Martinez will be conducting these one-on-one screenings on Wednesday evenings from 6-7pm. Matt has extensive knowledge on human movement with a BS in Rehabilitative Science and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He’s also a top-tier CrossFit athlete… so he understands! Matt also coaches a mobility class that is free and open to all members every Wednesday at 7pm. We highly recommend everyone attend this class whenever possible.

Nutrition Challenge is Coming
Whether we like it or not, summer is coming to an end. While it may be hard to say goodbye to the beach weekends, barbecues and fruity cocktails, the end of summer is a perfect opportunity to dial our nutrition in and get back on track. And what better way than to do it with the help of your coaches and the support of your favorite workout buddies?! Join us for our next nutrition challenge, kicking off on Sunday, September 23rd!

This nutrition challenge is for everyone – whether you’ve never given your diet a second thought, or you’ve done several of these challenges in the past. Our goal is to educate you on how you can make healthier choices on a daily basis and properly fuel your body to crush it in the gym. This is also a great way to get involved with the community and meet other members who are also taking on the challenge.

This is NOT a strict paleo, Whole 30, or no carb diet. Instead, the focus will be on eating whole, real foods in appropriate portions and at optimal times. Yes, certain foods/drinks will be off limits for the six week challenge; but only because we want you to feel amazing and reach your goals! We will go over the ins and outs of how to incorporate your favorite foods into your diets at the right times so that you do not feel constantly restricted outside of the challenge but can still make progress.
