We are so grateful for the support from each and every one of you as we make the decision to suspend physical gym classes today **[March 17th]** and we will be pivoting to online coaching, and virtual classes starting tomorrow **[March 18th]**
While our training might be changing for a bit, we upholding our promise to help you be healthy, happy, and fit. while staying connected to the community that inspires us everyday. As many work from home during this time, maintaining your workout routine is crucial to not only your physical health, but mental health as well. So many of us find a positive stress relief from working out, and we want to help everyone we can to reduce their stress during these challenging time, and continue to build a buffer of health against sickness and disease.
We will not stop coaching or running training sessions. We will use remote coaching & social media to program and instruct workouts. We take a lot of pride in being a lighthouse: We never go dark.
1. Remote Coaching – Online Training
A coach will connect with you 1:1 (if they haven’t already) to keep you accountable, answer questions, provide tips, feedback, and support. Coaches will help you with scaling options, and having a structure, and a plan. If you equipment limitations, physical limitations, etc. coaches will be able to guide you through your daily workouts.
2. Follow the “Home Warrior” programming on SugarWod!
These will be bodyweight focused workouts, with optional equipment (we are lending out gym equipment, read below). We will have video explanations of the workouts and the stimulus, and warm-ups. We HIGHLY encourage you to log your score in SugarWod, to fist bump a buddy and connect with each other online! Connecting with others helps to boost our immune system and stave off depression from loneliness! Be on the lookout, we will be reaching out to everyone to see how their workouts are going! Download the SugarWod App, and add CrossFit Roseville as your gym.
3 – Remote Coaching – Personal Training.
These custom WODs are just like the personal training we do here at CrossFit Roseville, but you will do it in your home. The coach in charge of your programming will reach out to you, review your goals, what you want to achieve, why, and what equipment you have. The coach will email you the workout of the day, and they expect to hear back from you how it went with a report. The more communication during this time, the better the results will be. If you have equipment at home, or if you have a specific goal, or specific limitations, shoot us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
4 – Equipment Lending Program.
We will be allowing members to pick two pieces of equipment: (a dumbbell, a kettlebell, a wallball, a box jump, a side-butt band, a sandbag, an abmat) for use during this shutdown. Equipment pickup will be Wed., March 18, from 9am to 10:30am & 4-5:30pm, and Thursday March 19, from 9am to 10:30am & 4-5:30pm. If you need alternate pick up times, or if you are self-quarantined at home, email me (email@example.com) and I will drop it off at your house. We will request the equipment back within 2-3 days of our location reopening.
5 – Virtual Classes
We will be offering virtual classes Monday thru Friday at 8am, Noon, and 5pm! These are going to be awesome! Coaches will lead you through a warm-up & mobility session, give you a class workout with movement demo and instruction, and coach you through the workout. Get your friends and join in on the fun! You will be able to talk to each other in the hang-out rooms. This is a great way to keep the community together and keep everyone accountable to get in their workouts! The first virtual class will be going live tomorrow at 5pm with Coach Curtis!
6 – Goal Setting Sessions Are Moving Online
We recommend every member do a Goal Setting Session every 90 days, just to check in with a coach about how your progress is going, and what we can help improve. Being stuck at home is a great time to schedule a call and chat with a coach! We will either do these on FB Messenger, or a Google Hangout call, these details are still being worked out.
7 – Community Challenges.
Stay tuned for some awesome community challenges! Now is the time to rack up the miles ran, minutes planked, and burpees…. burpeed? We won’t let social distancing stop us from having relationships with one another. We will have fun, keep the community together, and accomplish some amazing feats of fitness during this crisis. Strong people are harder to kill, and so are strong relationships.
As you all know, we are a small locally owned business. If your salary is guaranteed by your employer during this time we’d really appreciate your continued support. This will enable us to take care of our coaches, who can then take care of you with remote coaching/accountability. If you’ve been immediately hit financially (e.g. hourly wage/hospitality industry) please reach out and we will do all we can to help.
There are a lot of unknowns right now, but one thing we know for sure is that we are in this together and will get through this together. We love you, and will continue to support you through this!
