Welcome to July


Well folks it is officially summer here in Austin, and with summer comes new fun stuff at CrossFit Austin! We’re already 10 days into our new training cycle and our annual Murph day event will take place Saturday morning on July 4th.  Those are all the things you already know, so lets get into the new stuff happening at CFA starting this month!

First things first it’s time to bring back a #hashtag contest. The contest is quite simple, follow us on instagram & post a pic in July using the #SummerAtCFA hashtag.

Winners will be randomly drawn at the end of the month for a chance to win:

1st: FREE (yes, totally no joke free) membership for the month of August
2nd: Airrosti / CrossFit Games prize pack
3rd: CFA tshirt Winners will be randomly drawn on Aug 1st & announced here on Instagram.

Rumor has it a selfie stick might make its way to the gym next week.


Competitor Program
As you may have noticed we’ve fully integrated our competitor’s program into our group training sessions.  The competitor programming is being adapted from our good friends CrossFit Invictus, and organized in a way that allows our competitive athletes and coaches to be a bigger part of the overall CFA community. You’ll see the comp team guys and gals in group classes Monday – Wednesday and a majority of Saturdays.

Now, we would also like to open the competition program up to additional folks that are interested in adding some “extra / additional” work to their regular training sessions. Here are some baseline buy ins.

  • Training will take appx. 90 minutes and a portion of the work will be self directed
  • You need to be well versed in the exercises we do as Friday’s programming will be completely on your own
  • You must be on an Unlimited membership to have access to the program

If you’re interested in dipping your toes into the comp program waters send me an email at wes@crossfitaustin.com and I’ll add you to our private Facebook group.


Austin Weightlifting Summer Training Cycle
If just reading about that extra CrossFit work got you tired, or your idea of conditioning is a good set of 10 on the back squat, Austin Weightlifting might be for you. Last month we had six lifters including myself and Coach Erica compete in Olympic Weightlifting meets.  We’ve targeted late September for our next meet and will begin a full 12 week olympic weightlifting training cycle next Monday. Right not we have 6 athletes participating in the training cycle and would love for more folks to jump on board!

  • Our coached training sessions are on M/W @ 6:30 am & Tu/Th @ 6:30 PM, the rest of the program is completed in the Oly Center
  • If you’d like to continue to have access to CrossFit Classes this is available with your Unlimited membership
  • If you’d like to switch to an Oly Only Membership this is also an option

If you’re interested in any aspect of our Olympic Lifting Program email erica@crossfitaustin.com

For any questions about your membership option, or to change membership options, contact Genevieve at frontdesk@crossfitaustin.com and she’ll help you out!

Stay tuned for more great stuff at CrossFit Austin this summer!
