CrossFit Fenway is off to a great start in 2012. Our first ever Performance Based Paleo Challenge is underway, we’ve got a new home being built out, new coaches are stepping up, our community’s growing, the Open’s on its way, and we’ve got athletes PR’ing all over the place. All of this awesome has lead to an excellent challenge for the CFF staff to face: our classes are packed.
So what are we doing about it? First, we’re adding a coach, Mandy Brown. Mandy’s been working hard, preparing to get into the coaching mix. In addition to her CrossFit certification, Mandy is also a USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Coach. Mandy’s enthusiasm, work ethic, and attention to detail make her an outstanding addition to the team.
Adding a coach allows us to add classes. We’re starting with another midday class at 12 PM Monday through Thursday, and an Olympic Weightlifting class Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6:30 PM, with more to come. The Olympic Weightlifting class is dedicated to working on the Olympic lifts, the snatch and the clean & jerk, with an emphasis on drills and technique. It is included as part of your membership here at CrossFit Fenway, and athletes of all abilities are invited to participate.
As we’re expanding capacity, we’re simultaneously working with our vendor to make the class registration process as user friendly as possible. On the subject of our online scheduling system, please be courteous to our community, and cancel reservations you’ve made for classes that you won’t be able to attend. Being a no-show to a class doesn’t just mean you missed the class, but it also means someone else didn’t have the opportunity to take your place.
Everything’s coming up CrossFit Fenway right now, and we’re excited to keep it rolling. 2012 is shaping up to be another big year.

Who Wants Wrist Wraps?! Several of you have asked the coaches about wrist wraps, or even borrowed a pair. I like them for near-max overhead lifts, and metcons with a lot of work overhead. If you’re interested in ordering a pair for yourself, or would like more information please contact Eric by Friday, February 10th.
