Spartan Race 3 Mile Sprint: 8-29-15 Saturday



CFS has formed a team for the Spartan Race on Saturday, August 29th.  We want to do this with you!

The Spartan Race  has become an epic adventure race. There are several levels (SPRINT, SUPER, BEAST AND TRIFECTA). We figured a 3 mile SPRINT would be a great bonding event for CFS and doable for everyone and challenging as well.  Philosophically CrossFit is designed to train you for “real life” or at least to apply to recreation and sport. The Spartan series is a great application to test your fitness at all levels.

Having a GOAL can get you juiced up to train with a new intensity that many of you have experienced with a variety of goals such as, the CrossFit Opens, Marathons, local throw downs and the like. Some of you have been with us through the RUCKUS or even FESTIVUS and know how awesome a group event can be. If you follow the instructions below we all get to begin the race together and finish as a team. This SPARTAN race is the weekend before Labor Day weekend.  It’s far enough away for anyone to train for it.

The Whole Life Challenge Starting 9-19-15 Saturday

WLC Pic Sept 2015

It was such a success we’re doing it again!  

The new challenge begins September 19th and ends on November 13th.

It’s easy to sign up.  Just Click Here to register on our CFS team.

Select the nutrition level that you will play at in the Whole Life Challenge. The Performance level is the strictest level, the Lifestyle level is a good choice if you are looking for a long-term lifestyle nutrition program, the Kick Start level is for people who are just getting started and want to make just a few of the most important changes to their diet.

Click here to find the Nutrition Level Comparison Chart.

Each day you take about a minute to enter your scores.

On Day 1 of the Challenge, you will begin scoring yourself in the “7 Daily Habits.” These habits are:

1. Nutrition—worth 0-5 points each day

2. Exercise—worth 2 points each day

3. Mobility—worth 2 points each day

4. Hydration—worth 1 point each day

5. Supplement—worth 1 point each day

6. Lifestyle Practices—worth 1 point each day

The 7th Daily Habit, and the final element of your daily score, is your “Reflection,” a short, public journal entry you’ll post about your progress in the Challenge. Posting a reflection is worth 1 point. You do not have to post a reflection to submit your score.

During the week of September 14th you will have the opportunity to participate in the pre-challenge workout and take pre-challenge measurements.  These are recorded in your profile (and can be kept completely private if you choose) so that you can do the same workout and take the same measurements 8 weeks later to see your progress.

  • If you are a returning player then your registration fee is $24 if you sign up by 9/5/15
  • If you are a new player your registration fee is $39 if you sign up by 9/5/15
  • For any player registering after 9/5/15 the fee is $49

This time around our team captain is Linda D’avanzo.  If you have any questions please contact
