We love to see dogs at CrossFit.  There's even a cushion, water bowl and some treats located by the stairs for them. Because CrossFit has so many people coming in and out during class times, if your dog bites, gets nervous around strangers or jumps on people it's probably not a good idea to bring them to the gym.

If you're dog is social and friendly, remember the following guidelines:
+ Keep them tied to the stairs during classes and private training. If you'd like to let them off the leash to run around a bit, please ask one of the coaches first.
+ Try to keep your dog off the stretch mats.
+ If your dog starts barking, please attend to it

Congratulations to Matt R and Tamar A on their marriage!

Big thanks to Dave Mak for scoring the community a Refrigerator and cutting up the boards for our tablets!

Heavy Push Presses require a high level of midline strength to avoid
hyper-extending the lower back.  The tendency for someone with tight
shoulders or a weak midline is to lean back the top of the movement. 
Coach Fox will take us through some openers for the shoulders and
hips before we go overhead today.

Before class starts is the best time to do some individualized movement prep.  Do you do anything before class specific to you?
