Calling All Ladies!



Note: Due to increased interest, we have added additional "Women's Only" WODs during the week. Please see our updated schedule for more details.



For all existing and potential members, we are now offering a "Girls' Night" at CFW every Monday from 7:30 until 8:30.  We will focus  mainly on the basic olympic lifts (squats, deadlifts etc.) and bodyweight movements done at a high intensity.  This is a good opportunity for those women who are interested in trying CrossFit in a women-only setting.  If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Leslie ( [email protected] ).



If I had a dollar



I can't tell you how often I've had woman tell me that they don't want to do CrossFit or workouts that involve lifting heavy weight because they don't want to bulk up.  This is a n excellent article from elitefts dispelling the myths many woman have regarding lifting heavy. Pass this along to all the women you know who are hesitant to try CrossFit because they don't want to "look like a guy"! http://www.elitefts.com/documents/female_athletes.htm



In the sprit of friendly competition



CrossFit LA has a great feature on their website that we at CFW have decided to adopt.  It's called .  At the end of every day we'll take a picture of the results of the day's WOD and add it to the album on Facebook.  It's a great way to to keep track of your progress when the WOD comes up again and to encourage a little friendly competition among our members.



Deadlifts and Dresses



If I had to pick one fitness myth that bothers me the most, it would have to be the misconception many women have that they can't lift heavy weights (which is ridiculous).  So in the spirit of dispelling some myths, a little something for the ladies who love to deadlift! http://deadliftsndresses.wordpress.com/
