Apologies for the delay in the posts. Since given access to the blog I have countlessly put the wrong password in and blocked myself from getting back on. Problem solved. Ha. Apparently I am better at fitness then making posts to a blog, let’s hope that means that I can only get better as we go forward.

For those that have been consistent throughout the week, you are feeling the effects of the programing! Sore muscles is a good thing, make sure you are drinking plenty of water, getting as much sleep as you can squeeze into your schedule and also eating quality foods!

This weekend Damon is hosting his last local comp as an affiliate owner here at OUR gym!! The Retro Games start Friday afternoon and will run through Saturday afternoon. If you are not a competing athlete, come on out and cheer your loudest for your peers, or even offer your services as a volunteer. Those of you that have had the opportunity to be a part of our gym for a while, you know that the community is what makes this whole thing worth a darn! Come out, make new friends, cheer them on as they suffer to test their fitness!

Regular schedule is back starting today Aug 24th!
After our early morning classes Banu usually arrive at the gym at 8:40am. We will do our best to have a staff member here for those of you who do extra programming on your own from 8:40am – 7:30pm M-F, 8-11am Sat unless a coach is there before or after those hours.  In an effort to comply with our insurance policy (liability & safety) please adjust your schedule to come between those hours as a WCF staff member (any coach on the schedule + JB, Michaela, John, & Mike) must be in the bldg while you are here. As of Sept 1st the bldg will be inaccessible outside those hours.
We have dropped the 11:45am class and added CFUL(crossfit unloaded) fri @ 6pm and BBC (barbell club) sat 8am
Saturdays! WCF members are welcome to be in the bldg for class and do ancillary work as long as a WCF staff member is in the bldg. We would love to see our non member weekend warriors progress even more with a full membership at WCF. Effective Sept 1 non members may attend 2 classes (class only) then must be referred to Banu for membership.
-Now is the time to encourage membership with our back to school promohttp://wasatchcrossfit.com/wasatch-crossfit-promotions/ (Basically its: sign a contract and dont pay until sept 15th)
-What do you get as a member for signing up a referral? Your next gym Tshirt is Free
 
Drop in policy: With limited free saturdays our official drop in policy will be posted as follows:
From out of town? Buy a shirt or $20 gets you 3 classes then $15/class
Local? 2 free classes the $15/class…but we hope you’ll just join our awesome CF community
Daycare/KIDS: 
-A safety reminder: Your kids are NOT covered under the insurance policy on the equipment or gym floor/turf. Please keep them in the daycare room or older kids on the couches must stay put!  Kids love the equipment so if you are well away from class you may QUICKLY assist them with a pull up, box jump, etc ONLY if you stay right by their side.
