‘How To’ Seminars are back!

CFNYC we have good news! Really, it’s good news, I swear.

We’re firing up ‘How To’ seminars again. We plan to be running them on a 6 month cycle, two a month, typically on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month, with the cycle repeating at the conclusion of the 6 month period. (Obviously, we may have to make minor adjustments here or there.)

The seminars have been so popular in the past, and we want everyone to have a chance to hit any topics that interest them, or even repeat it later in the year, if they so wish. So keep in mind, if you don’t get in the first time, don’t fret, it will come back around. As always, these seminars are free to our members, they will be announced on the blog and then open for signing up on zen planner.

The 12 topics include, in no particular order:

How to:
-kip,butterfly pullup || double under || mobilize and recover || row || squat(squat therapy) || snatch || muscle up || kettlebell || eat || clean and jerk || get gymnasty || handstand,hspu,kipping hspu

The first seminar, will be on Sunday, July 27th at 9AM,10AM, and 11AM. “How to Mobilize and Recover” will be led by Coach Kyle. This is what Kyle has to say about the class:

“Do you have trouble recovering from tough weeks of workouts? Do you have a nagging issue that is slowing down your training? This seminar will provide a framework for shoring up your recovery efforts and will share helpful mobility tips and tricks to make you the best mover and shaker you can be.”

    All I can say is…

    I like to move it, move it.

    Very stoked! Over coffee and brunch after yesterday’s Park WOD, I was mentioning to Stacey that a box I worked out at during my visit “home” (Element CrossFit in Mississauga, Canada – just west of Toronto) runs a regular half-hour Wednesday night Mobility WOD class. It was definitely popular with the regular crew there. I’m looking forward to more of these seminars!

    • Stacey Pearson

      It was nice to chat with you! 😀

  • Mike cee

    Looking forward to the how to…eat seminar 😀

  • JenniferP

    Yes. What to eat in the context of these kinds of workouts. A seminar on how not to murder yourself doing box jumps would also be key.

    • Stacey Pearson

      I have matching shin scars, and literally bought a $4 pair of plastic shin guards online. I don’t wear them anymore, but they helped with confidence when I was still gun shy.

  • Hannah Adler

    Awesome! These will be so helpful.

  • Erik D

    Do these include WODs as well, or is it more of a lecture?

    • Stacey Pearson

      It depends on the topic. There will be lecture-y classes, and hands on classes. You should be able to tell what to expect, by the title and the brief description that we’ll provide prior to the class. How to Eat, will obviously be an AMBAP (as many burgers as possible).

      • Eric Chow

        I’ll take that class every week.

  • Thanks, these are great. I’m looking forward to ‘eat’. Aside from the Paleo mantra, we sometimes overlook the nutritional aspects.

  • Brian Ng

    perhaps a stupid question, but I have yet to find an answer in my less than strenuous sleuthing…wondering where these seminars plan to be held? Imagine 28 street?
