5 3 3 2 1

Last Sunday CrossFit Ready competed in our third Affiliate Cup Competition. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this annual competition, this is a team event which only includes members from CrossFit Affiliates within Santa Cruz County.  The teams are broken into three categories: RX, for the seasoned crossfiters who have competed before and are strong enough to handle the heavier barbell loads and advanced movements. Open, for the first time competitors or those who aren’t ready for advanced movements. Masters, for the over 40 gang. We had four teams and they all did great.  Our Masters team of Scott, Paul, Greg, Melanie, Barbara, and Nancy, finished the best with a 2nd place finish! Our Rx1 Team or Daniel J, EG, Alison, and Keely finished 6th.  Our RX2 Team or Sam, Troy, Gina, and Natalie finished 12th. Our Open Team, Kevin K., Stephan B., Rob S., Erica, Amanda, and Arielle finished 11th. Everyone represented Ready well and made out community proud.  Special shout out to the first time competitors:  Amanda […]

Aright everyone.. workouts are in. Lets get to work. Individual Event: 1 Squat Snatch+1 Overhead Squat The bar must be received with the hips below parallel (similar rules as the snatch event in the 2014 Regionals). No power snatch and squat, for example. Hips must pass parallel on squat as well. Lifter must stand tall (fully extended) and in control of the barbell after each lift. Judge will signal when to drop the bar with “good lift”. Press out is allowed as long as the barbell ascends in one smooth motion (no wide grip clean and press) and the arms are locked out upon standing. Dropping to knees is not allowed. Men use 45# bar. Women use 33# barbell. Weight increases must be in at least 5# increments. Heaviest completed complex wins. Lifters of each gender will all use the same respective bar, rotating on lifts. A lifter is allowed 3 missed lifts before being out. The weight on the bar cannot be decreased. Team Floater Event:  1:00 Airdyne for max calories   […]

Our Gym

Dear CrossFit Ready, We would like to thank you for all the tremendous support you have given to CFR. It had been over 2 years since we took the leap of faith to open this great facility. The ancient Greeks used the word gymnasion to describe a place for both physical and intellectual education. Our gym is more than a gymnasion. It is a place with likeminded individuals bettering themselves! Physically, we are constantly improving our fitness. Let it be our strength, endurance, or skills. We lift heavy, we run, we jump, and we move our bodies in different planes of motion.We accomplish amazing feats we never thought possible. We increase our fitness across all modalities and domains. Mentally, this gym is our escape from the outside world, and no matter the external stresses of our day, once we walk through that big front door, and step on that black matt we are transformed to a different world. None of the drama in our lives follows us in. None of the negative energy is […]
