Box Battles Competition (Marco Island)-October

For those of you that were able to join us for Box Battles last year, you know that it was a lot of fun competing together and an overall great experience for our gym.

Well it’s that time again… The “Sink or Swim” Box Battles Competition is going down Saturday and Sunday October 11th & 12th at the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort and it’s going to be spicy!

The competition will push co-ed teams ONLY (teams will consist of 2 males & 2 females). You are not required to have your team before signing up, leave that to us. If you have any interest, this is a great opportunity for anyone doing their first competition. There are three separate divisions: Rx’d, Scaled, and Masters.

In preparation for the competition,  we are offering a Competition Prep to all competitors who have signed up. We will discuss that in more detail at the gym this week.

*All accounts will be charged this Friday, so that we can reserve our spots for the competition. Over half the spots are full. Don’t be that person wishing you should have signed up! Whose with me?!

Email so we can get teams set up or fill your name in the sign up sheet  in the gym.

Want to be a coach at CFN?

As CrossFit Naples has grown over the years, so has the knowledge and experience of our student body.  While our training program provides tremendous opportunity for the growth and development of an athlete, it does not address the next step in the process – teaching.  With the help of the staff at CrossFit Naples and a select few from the member body over the last year, we have created the framework for those interested in taking this next step.

Program Description
The CrossFit Naples Instructor Training Program (ITP) was designed with two basic elements in mind;

  1. Teach participants how to become good, solid CrossFit instructors;
  2. Keep the rules and requirements to a minimum so that the program maintains an atmosphere of fun, lightness, growth, camaraderie, and learning.

We have designed the program to be completed in as little as 3 months .  The speed at which you move through the program will be determined mainly by your commitment to the process. This timeline is in place to keep you moving forward towards your coaching goals. We are only looking for those who are responsible, self-starters, motivated, and who don’t need hand-holding to keep them on the path.

**Note:  Completing the CrossFit Naples ITP in no way guarantees your position as a full or part-time instructor at CrossFit Naples.

Info Session
For those that have any inclination in the ITP program we will hold a 30 minute INFO Session on Saturday, August 9th at 10:00am. We will lay out the details of the 3 month program and leave time for question and answer. The actual start date of the ITP is Monday, August 18th.

Softball is a sport?

We’ve talked about the importance of learning and playing new sports in your development as an athlete. While for a rare few, CrossFit is their sport of choice, most of you CrossFit in order to make fitness an everyday part of your life. That integration into your daily lives has a profound carry over effect at home, on your work, and in your play! 

As a CrossFitter, you’ve paved the way to learning new sports by improving your fitness across all the physical skills we teach in CrossFit (Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Balance, Agility, and Accuracy). By being in the best shape of your life, you make the learning curve softer and are able to be more competitive. We encourage you to try new things and find as many applications for your fitness as possible! 

How about Softball? Come out Sunday and test your new fitness skills. If you are even slightly interested in playing softball this fall Sunday is a great opportunity to see if you would enjoying playing. What better way to hang out with a bunch of cool peeps from the gym.
