CrossFit Open begins March 6th

In two weeks, one of the most exciting and fun periods in the CrossFit year begins… the CrossFit Games OPEN. Why is it so exciting and fun you may ask? Well, it’s the one time in which ANY CrossFitter, regardless of level or ability to qualify a regional competition, has an opportunity to compete – just for the heck of it. Last year over 60,000 people took part (I wouldn’t be surprised if that doubled)… and got a chance to see themselves ranked on a world-wide scoreboard. Why is this good or a big deal?? It’s TOTALLY unique in the fitness and sport world – and it gives you a chance to be the person on the playing field, not sitting on the sidelines, watching. Putting yourself out there, slightly at risk, is a great way to feel alive, to test your skills and your fitness, and to see just how you stack up to the rest of the world.
Here’s how it will work:Starting on March 6th, CrossFit will announce a new workout every week for 5 weeks. That will become our Competition WOD for Thursdays. Additionally, on Saturday afternoons each week during open gym, we’llget together to whoop it up, push the pedal to the metal, and hit their best marks.

Now in order to participate, you must register, and you do that HERE. Cost $20. It’s well worth the money, just for the opportunity.

So check it out. Get registered. And join CrossFit Naples’ team. We’re REARIN’ to go!

Correcting the Deadlift

The deadlift is a functional movement. It is nothing other than picking something off the floor. When picking up a barbell, there are three setup conditions that create efficient, effective and safe mechanics: weight on the heels, maintaining solid midline stability, and having the shoulders just in front of the bar. The bar should travel vertically without having to move forward around the knees.

Many athletes set up too vertically, with the hips down, knees forward, and shoulders behind the bar. Rachel corrects this and other common flaws in the deadlift. Read MORE

In addition to that, it’s an opportunity to meet other members that may not be a part of your weekly classes while having alot of fun.
