When Bren came in for the first time and said she wanted to lift heavy and put on muscle, I about died with happiness. And this girl is committed!! She comes to class consistently, listens well, and has made awesome gains. So glad to be part of your journey, Bren. And so stoked to see where it takes you! Especially at the Cornucopia Cup next month!!!!

We actually know Chelsey originally because she was our daughter’s first nanny! We loved her immediately and couldn’t be happier to have kept her in our family. She works SO hard, being incredibly patient through lingering injuries. Thanks for inspiring us to be everyday better, Chelsey!

The Everyday Better Project — curious?!?!
Darrick will be putting on a seminar Saturday, September 3 specifically for those of you who want to know more, but aren’t 100% certain this program is for you. At the seminar, you’ll learn how to determine your macro-nutrient needs, as well as get an overview of the 5 steps of the program.
$20 (free to current EvBe members who would like a little in-person support!)
Check out the program here!
Stay tuned for more details and a link to sign up.

Saturday 9/3 — Everyday Better Nutrition Seminar @ CFRE, time TBD
Dan is one of our fiercest supporters. Despite a battle with RA, he comes in consistently and always works hard, with a smile. He deep cleans the gym once a week (thank you!), he represents us at local business meetings (2-hour parking anyone?!?!), and he loves and encourages each and every person he comes in contact with. We appreciate you SO MUCH!!!
Hey all! Hope you’re having an amazing summer so far!
Here are some reminders on our new classes/schedule:
Clarification: You don’t have to already be a comp athlete to join this class. You simply have to be ready to come in and freaking hustle. It’s not open gym — it’s a chance to get that fast-paced, high-intensity workout you may not experience during regular classes. You can still scale the weights and movements. It’s simply a chance to really pack that hour full of hard work!!
Wednesday, 8 p.m. at CFRE
Saturday, 8 a.m. at SODO CrossFit
Athletes from either gym can attend either Firebreather class.
New Open Gym Times
We’re now offering open gym Monday through Friday, 9am-noon!
The Everyday Better Project is up and running!
Our goal with this project is to help people get from A to Z (i.e., couch to CrossFit) with gradual steps, including fitness and nutrition. The program can be done remotely, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please share!
The nutrition part of the program is also extremely beneficial for CrossFitters looking to gain a bit more control regarding weight loss, strength gain, and maintenance. Check it out here!
Sunday 7/3 — Regular schedule
Monday 7/4 — Fourth of July! ONE class @ 10am
Sunday 7/10 — First EVER comp hosted by SODO CrossFit. Kind of a big deal. 🙂
Members get a discounted rate (only $50) through the end of TODAY, July 1… that’s one MORE day! Use discount code MemberMFGT when you check out.
Friday 7/22 — Happy Hour! Location TBD
Right away, Taylor fit into the CFRE community (specifically the 5:30 class) like a missing puzzle piece. She has always listened carefully to the coaches’ instructions and because of that has made some serious gainz in no time at all. She’s crushing the hell out of her deadlift, and I’m sure she’ll have that pull-up in no time!
There is some awesome stuff happening this month!
We added a brand-new class! The Firebreather class is for CrossFitters who regularly perform Rx workouts, are comfortable working out with little coaching, and are ready to take it to the next level. We will be working on high-level skills like muscle-ups and handstand walks, as well as crushing comp-level workouts.
Wednesday, 7 p.m. at CFRE
Saturday, 8 a.m. at SODO CrossFit
**THE FIRST FIREBREATHER CLASS WILL BE SATURDAY, JUNE 4**
Athletes from either gym can attend either class … make sure you have a waiver on file at the respective gym!
The launch of the Everyday Better Project
We just launched a big project that’s been in the making for months. The idea behind the Everyday Better Project is to help people get from A to Z (in our case, from couch to CrossFit) with gradual steps, including both fitness and nutrition. The program can be done remotely, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please share!
The EvBe nutrition program is also beneficial for CrossFitters looking to gain a bit more control regarding weight loss, strength gain, and maintenance. Check it out here!
