Fall 2016 Soft Goods Order

It’s that time of year, time to pick up some warmer clothing for the winter. This will be our only run of gear until Spring time so whether you’re looking to pick-up something for yourself, or a Christmas gift for someone make sure you sign-up accordingly. While we will be ordering a handful of extra T-shirts for stock, the other items will be sign-up order only. We aren’t ordering extras if you don’t sign-up there won’t be something for you. All you need to do is put your name and size down, we’ll take care of billing you for them when they come in, in December. Order is going in Monday, November 28th so that they’re here well before the Holidays. You’ve got two weeks to put your name down, but why wait, do it now!

All items are laid out in the pictures except for the long sleeve t-shirt hoodie. This is the same item we printed on two years ago that so many of you love. Print for the long sleeve t-shirt will be the same as the t-shirts, a single sided print.

You can sign-up at the link HERE…colors should be self explanatory, but if it’s not the background in the cell is the shirt color and the text is the text color. Please be mindful of which tab you are on so you make sure you are signing up for the right item. Lastly please be mindful not to erase someone else’s input and leave them without their order. All items printed on are unisex…most women are a size Small, smaller ladies should go for the X-Small.

Winter Sniffels

It’s that time of year again. I’d like to take just a minute to formally address being sick and training. At some point each and every one of you are going to get sick throughout the winter. Some of your are courteous enough to stay home and rest, while other comes in coughing, sneezing, dripping  snot and nastiness everywhere.

First a foremost, if you’re sick, coming into the gym and training is not going to help you get better. Sweating it out is a great way to help yourself get better when you’re sick…however that sweating it out refers to sitting in a Sauna, not going to the gym and further beating your body down weakening it’s immune system. That’s right, when you train, while ultimately exercise helps  you be fitter, stronger, healthier, etc. it also does beat your body down and weaken your immune system for a short period of time. That’s fine when you’re healthy, but if you’re currently sick, exercising is not going to help you get any better. You WON’T lose all your fitness from days, or even a couple of weeks off, in fact if you’re a 5-6 day/week exerciser a week off a couple of times a year will do your body some good. If you’re that much of an addict and you have to train, hit a 100 Burpees for time at home, do a 20 minute AMRAP of going up and down your stairs, there is something you can do at home that will get you breathing and working up a sweat.

I understand that CrossFit and the gym is very much a social environment for most of you, and that’s a big part of why you come. I can tell you however, that your friends don’t want you there sneezing, coughing all over them nor do the coaches and rest of the individuals in the room.

Lastly with only 2 full-time employees at the gym if we get sick, it leaves us in a pretty crappy situation of not only having to work longs hours while under the weather, but continuing to spread the disease to others as we don’t have the option of calling out sick to work, working from home, etc. etc.

So, please, if and when you get sick, please stay home. Your fitness won’t leave you, nor will your friends. Your body will ultimately thank you, and myself, the rest of the coaches, and the 300 athletes that train at Champlain Valley CrossFit would all greatly appreciate you leaving your sickness at home.

New Classes Starting June 6th

We are super excited to announce that we will be adding some new classes to our schedule. As we continue to grow as a business and community we are constantly looking for valuable new ways to expand our offering and make this the best possible place for you all to exercise. We’ve learned a lot over the years and have also seen, heard, and read a lot about the fitness landscape. While traditional CrossFit will always be out bread and butter, we understand that some of you would love to see some different options at Champlain Valley CrossFit. We recently added our Movement and Aerobic Capacity class. In addition we understand that for some past, present, and current members, our traditional CrossFit classes aren’t an ideal fit.

These new classes will be something quite different, and they will also lower the barrier of entry into our facility as they will require NO On-Ramp course. Anyone can come jump in on a class, anytime. For the last 5+ years we’ve depended on you, our members to help grow Champlain Valley CrossFit. You enjoy our facility, and services, and want your friends to do it with you. In an effort to help grow our business but to also help you guys get your friends in here, we are going to offer the first 3 CrossFit Burn Classes free to any new/prospective members. Unfortunately for now our scheduling with these new classes will be limited, but we’ve added them in our most desired time slot, that you all, the Champlain Valley CrossFit community asked for, 8:00 AM. Our hope is that these classes grow in popularity, help us attain some new clients, and in doing so, will allow us to take over some additional space in our building and start to offer these classes, along with some others we have up our sleeves, at a variety of times throughout the day, just like our traditional CrossFit classes. While we have handful of classes in the works we will be starting by adding the two below.

CrossFit Burn

This class is a blend of CrossFit and Boot Camp. No barbells, all conditioning, all go. Read more about CrossFit Burn HERE.

Assault Spin

You guessed it, a Spin class on the Assault Bikes. We’ve got a huge cycling community, and plenty of people who Spin, so why not make it a little tougher and do it on an Assault Bike. Read more about Assault Spin HERE.

Spring Clothing Order

We’ve been a bit behind getting this together, but we’re getting some new tops printed. Sorry ladies and gents, just T-shirts and 3/4 Baseball Tees for now. Order will be going in this coming Monday, May 9th. Everything is being printed on Bella Unisex Shirts, same thing we’ve printed on for years so sizing is the same as the past. Please put in your order on the Google Docs spreadsheet HERE. 3/4 Basebell Hawks T-shirts will be as pictured (note the shirt will be Red with Red Print not, Pink with Pink Print). We will be printing the Hawks Logo also in T-shirts in the same color scheme as the “Plain” shirt. Don’t wait, put your name down, it’ll take 60 seconds, don’t wait, forget, and then miss out.
