COVID-19 OPERATIONS UPDATES
To Our CrossFit Austin Family,
Well, we got the word… unfortunately we are unable to offer services within our facility at this time, however, we are not out of options!
We have been working around the clock the last few days to transition to an online platform until we are able to reopen the doors!
Now is not the time to stop doing the things that have kept you healthy and active so join us on this journey and we promise we’ll keep things fun and engaging!
Don’t forget about our pillars! CFA || Community * Fitness * ADVENTURE
For today –
We will not be running open gym or evening class times.
We will be at the gym until 6:30 pm this evening as we clean and prepare for this TEMPORARY transition.
Please come by, say hello, and gather anything you have left at the gym. Depending on the circumstances, we will try to offer one more option to do this again later in the week.
We are allowing current members to check out either a dumbbell or a kettlebell to use at home until we are able to return to normal operations. If you are interested in checking out a piece of equipment, come on up! If you want to shoot us a message prior to making the trip to see if we have what you want available, please feel free to respond to this email or shoot Gen a message and we’ll let you know what’s available.
We have protein and Force of Nature in stock still if you don’t want to brave the store 😉 We also have Puori Vitamin D if you are concerned that you might not be able to get out in the sunshine!
For tonight –
If you were planning to come to class tonight, Coach Aaron put together a DB version of this workout at home which can also be done with a single kettlebell if you have one!
If you don’t have dumbbells or kettlebells, here is another version that requires nada!
A – Spend 10:00 practicing hand balancing – Frog stands, handstands, shoulder taps, handstand walks, etc..
B – In 8:00 Minutes – 2 min jump rope or jumping jacks, then AMRAP in the remaining time –
12 push ups with shoulder taps
12 air squats
24 sit ups
1:00 rest, then repeat 8 min cycle again!
For tomorrow –
We will put out programming for a home workout so you guys can still move your bodies if you so choose, but we will be taking the day to settle in, collect our thoughts, and organize the next step of our transition to online coaching! We may not have a very speedy response if you message us tomorrow, but rest assured we will return messages ASAP.
For the future –
First of all, remember that this is only temporary. Take a deep breath and hang in there with us.
We have a lot of fun plans for conferencing people in to do “group” classes online where we can see, hear, and “hang out” with each other via the internet!
We are also lining up some challenges to continue to keep you guys accountable and engaged (and not bored and stir crazy) as we navigate this ADVENTURE!
Many of you have hybrid sessions you haven’t used yet. We have options for that as well! Your lovely coaches will (some already have!) reach out to you to chat about ways we can continue to guide you toward your goals. Again, the internet has great tools for us to continue to work 1-on-1 with you. We even have some ideas for Heidi to schedule “hands off massage” sessions.
In this time, we ask you to continue to support your coaches and this community that we call our family by trusting us in the process. We fully believe that we can and will provide value to you.
Stay tuned for more details! We’ll continue to keep you in the loop! Please keep an eye on the members FB group, your email, and www.crossfitaustin.com/blog for further updates!
In the pursuit of health,
Tim & Gen
Big Love <3
