Event 4 was The Marathon Row and it was 42,195 meters with a time cap of 4 hours. Athletes who did not complete the row in the time cap would be excluded from… Read more »
Sleep Matters You may have heard me talking lately about sleep being a main source of recovery. Sleep is like nutrition for the brain. If you are plateauing in your workouts, feeling foggy and tired, or needing caffeine in the afternoon – lack of structured sleep could be the culprit. Did you know that lack… Read more »
What are you capable of? “If you fell down on the ground, right here, right now, how long would it take you to get up?” As the first contact for most individuals reaching out to CrossFit Forward, I find myself in the perfect position to discuss CrossFit HQ’s methodologies, how it pertains to Forward’s approach,… Read more »
Fall Is In The Air I was out this weekend getting my daughter all the things needed to start school next week. I realized that fall is right around the corner which then made me think of football. Well, since I revolve everything around food, football became HOT WINGS!! I got hungry and decided I… Read more »

This weekend we had 30 Forward athletes throw down for Fall Festivus at Forward! Nothing beats the thrill of sweating it out side by side with your fellow gym mates, leaving it all on the floor, chasing that last rep. Win or lose, it was a great experience for everyone.

Nice work to EVERYONE who competed, cheered, and contributed to the amazing energy we had at Forward this weekend. My heart is so full with love for our community!
We weren’t the only ones competing this weekend! The first phase of the CrossFit Games took place this weekend, and narrowed down the field of competitors to 5 men and women. No surprise, three of the ten are COMPTRAIN ATHLETES!! That means that they use a lot of the same programming that we do. Just further evidence that we just need to trust the process and the results will come!
This week is going to be very challenging, especially if you’re still sore from last week/this weekend. But it’s nothing that we can’t handle! We have a good mix of some moderately short and long workouts this week, along with some fun strength pieces. Don’t forget to check the white board for some extra work that you can do on your own!
Just a reminder that afternoon classes are going to be different this week!! There will be a 3:30, 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30 class from now on (no 6:30 on Fridays). Also, if you’re an early morning person, don’t forget that we have a 6:30 a.m. class now as well!
Looking forward to seeing everyone this week!!
