Space gets a bit tighter as the carport serves its dual purposes as both effective CrossFit gym and the homeowners’ storage space. Fortunately, we have an incredibly generous and accommodating landlord, who states, “We have a bunch of stuff we should get rid of anyway.” Because of the tremendous space-clearing efforts, including the removal of an old washer and dryer, we are able to add three additional stall mats (another 72 square feet), essentially tripling our total floor space to 12 feet x 20 feet.
Classes bring continued focus on the fundamental CrossFit triplet: squat, push-press, deadlift. We take the fundamentals and remove the metabolic component to focus entirely on technique. Striving for absolute perfect execution (or damn near), our athletes help with the coaching. If someone is not performing correctly or is slacking on execution, the crew makes the call. “Head up!” “No slouching!” “Fix that back!” echo from the carport.
