Goal Setting Sessions & InBody Scans in April 📢

To maximize the benefits of your membership, including our InBody scans, we have implemented quarterly scanning for all members (excluding nutrition clients). These scans will take place in January, April, July, and October.

Starting in April, we are introducing an exciting new process to enhance your experience and provide valuable guidance. To receive your quarterly InBody scan, we kindly request that you schedule a goal setting session with one of our coaches (it can be done anytime before your class, even if you eat. We only have to be consistent with the time we do it). During this 15-minute session, your coach will not only assist you with the scan but also review the results, discuss personalized goals, and provide actionable steps.

We are pleased to inform you that these goal setting sessions are completely free and included in your membership. We strongly believe that this additional value will empower you to achieve your fitness aspirations more effectively. We appreciate your understanding and continued dedication to your fitness journey. Rest assured, we are committed to supporting you every step of the way!

And the winner is…

The winning team of the 2024 Rifle CrossFit Open is Captain Katie's team, who secured an impressive total of 99 points! In a closely contested competition, Captain Jess's team came in second, only three points behind. The victory grants Captain Katie's team the coveted bragging rights, as well as a small surprise. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the incredible members and coaches who contributed to making this year's Open truly memorable. We are aware that everyone experienced a mix of nerves and excitement, and we couldn't be prouder of the outstanding performances displayed in all the workouts. We eagerly look forward to next year's Open!

3️⃣ Areas Of Focus To Achieve a Healthy You 🙌

Are you guilty of putting to-do lists, work, and other people before your own needs?

The problem with forgetting to fill your cup is that you aren’t able to give your best self to anyone or anything else. Not to mention, you start experiencing less-than-ideal side effects when you put yourself on the back burner.

Giving what you don’t have is one of the most selfish things we can do and the quickest way to burnout.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be complicated. You can start working towards a healthy you by choosing something simple from the categories below to start implementing TODAY.

1. Body

Working on your body has a huge impact on overall health. Many people find this area to be the easiest to start with. If you aren’t working on your body one of the examples below might be a great place for you to begin.

For instance, you could:

  • Consume nourishing foods
  • Work on your hydration
  • Move your body (exercise)
  • Prioritize sleep

2. Mind

Our mind is powerful. It has the ability to transform the world around us and improve our overall quality of life. Check out the list below to see if anything stands out to you.

Things you could try:

  • Read
  • Take a break from screens
  • Make a gratitude list
  • Try something new

3. Soul

Being busy and stress go hand in hand. Take the time to refresh your soul daily by finding something that works for you.

Some ideas to try:

  • Spend time in nature
  • Get fresh air
  • Stretching
  • Breathwork
  • Listen to music
  • Smile/Laugh

If you are struggling to put yourself first so you can give others your best self, today is the day to break that cycle. The key is to ensure you aren’t trying to change everything at once or biting off more than you can chew.

When thinking of ways to achieve a healthier you, begin with the things that you are excited about. This way you won’t feel overwhelmed when incorporating them into your new daily routine.

Still don’t know where to start? I’m here to help! 

Have a great week!

— Coach Caroline

These workouts have been designed to challenge the very best athletes, and we will provide scaling options to ensure that every athlete in your gym can participate and excel.

Get ready for an exciting and action-packed month of training. Let's give it our all and make this a memorable Quarterfinals season! And here is what’s in store for our week:
