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. I can’t wait for the… Read more »
Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend and had some time to recover. CompTrain has programmed another awesome week for us! Lots of fun conditioning pieces, a chance for a one rep max, gymnastics, and a pretty intimidating barbell complex. Start planning out your week now!! And don’t forget that we now have a 6:30 a.m….

This is our first full week of September, and it looks like the weather might just be starting to cool off as we ease our way into Autumn (still a few weeks away, I know, but a girl can dream). Perfect weather for getting outside to RUN! I know that we have our new Assault… Read more »
I feel like a broken record at this point, but I have to say that last week’s programming was AWESOME! Technically, last week was a chance to deload before a new cycle begins this week. CompTrain has entitled the next 11 weeks of programming “Gymnasty,” which leads me to believe that we will be on… Read more »
Hey guys! I’ve got to say, I saw next week’s programming and I was instantly pumped for what it has in store for us! We will see a lot of barbell work, a lot of cardio/capacity, and a lot of gymnastics movements. Talk about “constantly varied,” right? I hope everyone has been getting a lot… Read more »
I hope everyone got a chance to recharge their batteries this weekend! We’ve got another week of intense workouts coming up, and you should make sure you’re doing all that you can to take care of yourself inside and outside of the gym. Been feeling sore lately? You’re not alone! Make sure you’re getting plenty… Read more »
It’s been an awesome few weeks of training at Forward. We’ve got another great one coming up this week, with lots of conditioning WODs and some strength thrown in. Don’t forget to check the whiteboard from now on, as we are going to include some “After Party” work that you can choose to do on… Read more »
Looks like we will be taking a break from the excessive heat of the past few weeks! No excuses to miss workouts this week! Last week was, believe it or not, a deload week with CompTrain. So this week expect even MORE intensity. We have some long, heavy conditioning workouts this week that I’m really… Read more »
Hope everyone used this weekend to recover from another hard week at the gym!! The new programming has been challenging to say the least–but also very rewarding! Don’t forget that rest and recovery are just as important as time spent sweating your heart out. Make sure you’re sleeping and eating to fuel your body. I… Read more »
Hey folks! Hope everyone got some time this weekend to relax and enjoy (or avoid) the summer weather. We’ve got another great week of COMPTRAIN programming for everyone, and my personal recommendation is to HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE!! We aren’t even halfway through summer and these days have been scorching–water and electrolytes, guys!! We will see… 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. I can’t wait for the 2021 Open in February!! Here are the results from the competition:
Novice Female: Rachel and Lyndsey tied for 1st, Kathleen in 2nd, and Ella and Mary tied for 3rd
Novice Male: Jacob in 1st, Patrick in 2nd, Brian in 3rd
Masters Female: Tiffany in 1st, Amy and Julie in 2nd, Pam in 3rd
Masters Male: Ed in 1st, Bill in 2nd
Intermediate Female: Valerie in 1st, Melina in 2nd, Becca in 3rd
Intermediate Male: Greg in 1st, Bob in 2nd, George in 3rd
RX Female: It was just me, so I was first and last!
RX Male: Danny in 1st, Mike in 2nd, and Justin in 3rd
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!!
