Zoom recently instituted mandatory password protection of all usage on their platform to prevent trolling. For all classes except CrossFit Kids, you’ll be using the same Zoom room link you’ve been using and the following password: CFSBK. Go HERE to see our full class schedule.
100m Run, 100m Walk/Rest
- Use the first 2 as an extended warm up to build in intensity. Goal is fairly consistent splits after that.
- Ok to estimate the 100m (or about :20-:30 of work, rest as you slowly walk back to start).

Continuing our new series of Rest Day videos, here’s Coach Chris Fox with a video on his journey through dealing with anxiety and panic. Thank you for sharing with us, Chris! Even thought this is a Rest Day, don’t forget that we’re offering 7am Yoga for Athletes and 6pm Pilates today
New: Friday Morning Meditation
We’ve been offering a free Tuesday Morning Meditation with Coach Fox for a couple weeks, and now you can look forward to another Morning Meditation on Fridays at 8am!
Join us for these free 30 minute classes as we begin our day together with a small dose of mindfulness. Each session begins with descriptions of the specific techniques we’ll use that day, some breath work followed by a brief mindfulness meditation, and ends with a few minutes for questions and comments. These sessions offer something to experienced meditators and first timers alike, and no previous experience at all is required. If you’ve been “contemplative curious,” this can be a great place to start. If you’re a seasoned sitter, use it as a nice bump to your existing practice.
Meditation is for anyone, anywhere, though there are a few common recommendations that can help make for a more enjoyable experience.
Find a comfortable position. This can be seated on the floor, on a cushion, in a chair, lying down, and even standing. If you need to lean against a wall or the back of a couch then do so without feeling like it’s wrong. There’s no one perfect “mediators posture”. Whatever allows you to be comfortable and alert is what’s best for that day. This link from Insight Meditation Center on the topic offers some helpful guidance.
- Log in and set up a few minutes early to get comfortable.
- Have a layer handy to put on in case you become cold.
- If possible, set up somewhere where you won’t be disturbed for the length of class.
- If you do become disturbed by a pet/kid/spouse/roomie/
neighbor/garbage truck/etc. smile.
Looking forward to seeing you!
