New Specialty Class Starting January 2019: Gymnastics

Starting January 9th, CFNYC will be offering a CrossFit Gymnastics class at both gym locations with Coach Stephanie. The one hour specialty class will be held at the UWS on Wednesday nights at 7:30 PM and at 28th Street on Thursday nights at 6:30 PM.

The class programming will run on a four week cycle, focusing on one specific gymnastics element before moving onto the next one. The first monthly cycle will be starting with the skill: HANDSTANDS! For the next 4 weeks we will work on drills to develop strength, proper body position and technique for a better handstand. Please come prepared to do a dynamic warm-up, skill-building drills and progressions and a quick bodyweight WOD or EMOM at the end of each class.

A little bit about Coach Steph’s gymnastics background:
Stephanie was a Level 10 Junior Olympic competitive gymnast and was named All-American at USAG Collegiate National Championships for Cornell University as a sophomore. After retiring from gymnastics in 2005, she dabbled in marathons and triathlons to stay fit but didn’t really enjoy exercising until she found Crossfit in November of 2014. Stephanie was a member of CFNYC’s Comp Team for two years before joining the Manhattan Barbell Team to compete in Olympic Weightlifting. Stephanie is extremely excited to share her knowledge and passion for gymnastics with the CFNYC community!

If you have any questions about the class, please contact Stephanie at boxjumpsandbows@gmail.com.
