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 […]

In honor of #tbt or Throwback Thursday, I would like to write a little post about the CrossFit Games. This year CrossFit Ready had 2 Masters athletes make the 2014 Games! Kristine gave it her all this year. She hit a personal record deadlift at 215lbs on the first day. She continued to give it her all throughout the week and had some intense battle wounds when it was all said and done. Troy Miller lifted some heavy weight on the first day, a big 445lb deadlift! He represented Ready amazingly on the last day with a huge first place in the “Down and Back” chipper WOD. 40 box jumps 24 in 20 toes-to-bars 40 wall-ball shots 20lb 20 ring dips 40 wall-ball shots 20lb 20 toes-to-bars 40 box jumps 20in This Chipper will now be known as the “Troy Takeover”…Hint hint. We will be doing it next Friday! I am personally very proud of both athletes. They both put in the time and hard work to make it in […]

Hello CrossFit Ready community! Starting Monday we will be changing our weekly trainer schedule! We would like to welcome Coach Meredyth Ramsey and Coach Eliot Young to our training staff.

Mobility. After some awesome lifting, an amazing circuit, and some burning abs, you are ready to go home and eat that macronutrient dense delicious dinner! How many of us at CF Ready actually take the time to work on mobility?… (crickets)… Many of you come early to the gym, use that time and work on some mobility drills specific to you. Mobility drills are often overlooked, pick one of the many posters in our gym and do some of the band/ lacrosse ball work before or after class. The better our mobility the better athlete we become. We can improve our olympic lifts, by getting into that hated overhead squat position comfortably.  We can open up those hips  so we can capitalize on that aggressive hip extension. We can also keep our bodies safe by decreasing dangerous positions in the majority of our lifts. Also, use the internet as a source for awesome mobility drills. All my favorites are on Kelly Starrett’s youtube channel. Checkout the video below to help […]

Lets do this cycle ONE MORE TIME! This week we will begin a new cycle of the Wendler by increasing your 1RM weights by 5 pounds for the press and 10 pounds for The back squat and deadlifts. We will be using the 1RM weights to recalculate our percentages. I know some of you are confused. For example, let’s say you used the following 1RM numbers to calculate your cycle: Deadlift: 300 Squat: 200 Military: 100 For your next Cycle, you would calculate your lifts using the following 1RM numbers: Deadlift: 310 Squat: 210 Military: 105 Get ready for fun! Get ready to get uncomfortable for those max reps. Stay tight. Stay focused. Push it.
