Upcoming Events Here at CFO
We have a number of events planned over the next month.
Without further adieu, here goes.
Free Chiropractic Adjustments on Wednesday, July 25
CrossFitter and chiropractor Allen Currano has graciously agreed to give CFO members chiropractic adjustments this Wednesday, July 25. The cost is free to all CFO members and Allen will be giving adjustments beginning at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Come on by!
Rowing Clinic August 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
We’ll be hosting a Concept2 rowing clinic Saturday, August 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Ian Simpson will be coaching us on the finer points of rowing, so whether you’re looking to learn proper technique for the first time or are looking to enhance your current technique, this clinic is for you.
A little bit about Ian:
Ian Simpson is coach of the varsity junior womens team at the Oakland Strokes rowing program based out of the Jack London Aquatic Center on the Oakland Estuary. Prior to arriving in Oakland last September, Ian headed the Long Beach juniors program for a number of years, guiding the women’s team to a couple of national championships.
Before coaching juniors, Ian was a resident coach at the US Olympic Training center in Chula Vista with the US Womenâ€™s National Team, where he helped prepare the rowers for the 2000 Olympic Games, ran selection and preparation camps for World Championships and Pan American Games teams, and coached at World Championships and other International Regattas.
WOD-Off on August 11 Starting at 6:00 p.m.
We’ll be having our next WOD-Off on August 11 beginning at 6:00 p.m. We’ll be running it in heat fashion, just like we did with Fran for our first WOD-Off. And as with the first one, we’ll be holding a potluck with all kinds of yummy food and beverages afterward.
The workout for the WOD-Off will be Helen (3 rounds of run 400m, 21 kettlebell swings, and 12 pull-ups), which many of you were exposed to earlier today.
Come ready to work out, eat, drink, and be merry!
