    Ady recently hit her 3 year mark of doing CrossFit and she brought in chocolate covered strawberries to share with the class she was attending. She wanted to say thank you for everything that CFCP has done for her. Ady is the one who put in the work and made the changes, she has been consistent in our evening classes and has done some personal training sessions. She loves her nutrition program that has helped her hit many of her goals.  Thank you Ady, you are a amazing person and we love having you as a part of our CFCP family!

    Fernando


     Fernando was one of our very first athletes, he is in our facebook photo albums from 2010  and  2011 in some of the last workouts we did in our garage and some of the first work outs we did in a warehouse. Fern quickly became one of our strongest guys but has always been one of the best members of our community. He has taken some breaks from Crossfit but has been consistent as anyone lately. He always has a positive attitude and a smile on his face. I asked Jordon about having Fernando in his 9:00 class.  "He is an all around amazing person to be around, he is a hard worker that is crazy strong."

    How to set notifications from Triib
     A cool feature of Triib is the opportunity to track work outs and lifts, Its also fun to see others work outs and like or comment on their scores. The problem is that there isn't a default notification set up. If you want to set your notifications log into your account. (not the ap) Underneath the picture click on settings. Then on the right side click on "Alerts" You can sync your phone to get a text message, get an email, or what I prefer turn on the mobile alerts and the ap will let you know when someone likes your workout or has a comment.

    Who's Really the Selfish One?

    Who’s Really the Selfish One?

    By Wes Piatt at Coast Range Crossfit

    For the past seven years I’ve made my life coaching and helping others find health and wellness in one way or another.  As with any profession, over time you will come across the same problems.
    About four years ago, I was coaching at my old gym, CrossFit Inferno, in my hometown of San Luis Obispo, California. One of our members pulled me aside after class and asked if I could help her with something. She was having trouble finding the time to make it to the gym enough to feel like the membership was worth it.
    We spent the next hour writing down her daily schedule from the moment she woke up until the moment she fell asleep. The disheartening thing was there really wasn’t much space in her schedule to make it to the gym more than twice a week. We all know that while twice a week is better than zero, it’s not going to get anybody the results they want or need.
    After another hour of rescheduling, we came up with a plan that would allow her to get into the gym three days a week. Still not ideal, and she would really have to hustle to make it work, but better than what she was doing now. I hugged her, told her I would be checking in to make sure she was holding up her end of the bargain and to let me know if she needed any other help.
    That member made it two weeks coming three times a week, then eventually went right back to her two, one, or not at all some weeks. When I saw her a few months later I asked her how the schedule was working out for her (knowing already she hadn’t been coming like we talked about). With her head down, she said something that stuck with me and really shifted the way I think. She said, “I just can’t be selfish and put the gym before my family.”  Continue Here
