We would like to officially announce the start of a new program at CrossFit North Miami Beach. The MVMT program led by coach Joe Falco is a mostly body weight and barbell free “unloaded” CrossFit class offering the development of mobility, skill, and conditioning. Currently these classes will be at 9:30AM and 5:30PM Monday, Wednesday & Friday starting 04/14/14. They are available to unlimited members free of charge. This program is also great for friends or family who are hesitant to jump right into CrossFit classes. This program offers the promise of CrossFit’s constantly varied high intensity functional fitness with the twist, focusing on the flexibility, balance, speed, and accuracy or coordination aspects of overall fitness. Sustainability and longevity are part of the reason CrossFit has become wildly popular across the world. MVMT is designed to expand on these two virtues, making it a great complement to a weekly CrossFit Regimen.
Mike shows up with a great attitude each and every day. His approach to learning new skills and movements starts from a fundamental knowledge of the basics. His list of accomplishments include: Muscle ups, bar muscle ups, double unders a respectable squat, team competitions, a 7th place Open finish within the box and Levi & Tyler. He is always asking questions to improve his knowledge and will always lend a hand to the newbies in class.
“It’s a huge honor for me to be named Athlete of the Month.Thank you to all of the CFNMB coaches – I admire your dedication to us and I’m inspired by all of you! My athletic background before I started CrossFit wasn’t too impressive. I played soccer for a day when I was a kid and I joined the swim team for an hour or two. I was the kid who got picked last to be on a team (take a moment with your kleenex and then please continue). When I was 39 I was a professional couch surfer and an occasional kitesurfer, both made me sore for days.
After seeing some friends post about CrossFit, I decided to give it a try. I was hooked after my first intro class. Chad Knopp morphed me into a superior Olympic lifter and I was on my way. At first I remember my only goal was to finish the workouts, no matter what. It wasn’t long until I officially drank the Kool Aid.
What’s most important to me about Crossfit is that it completely changed my life. It taught me structure and dedication. I learned how to reach and achieve goals and not be afraid of any challenge. It helped to settle my royal oats ,without moving to Queens, and I credit CrossFit and my coaches for all the amazing changes in my life over the past two years, and not just the physical ones. Since I joined, I ran Warrior Dash and Spartan Race, Rode a 100 mile race in North Carolina, entered into various CrossFit competitions, got married and had twins. All of these challenges used to seem impossible, today their like any other wod – finish, go hard and give it your all.
The best part about CrossFit at CFNMB – the people. Lina and I have made some genuine, life long friends and you guys make coming to the gym that much more awesome. Much Love. And thank you Lina for giving me the freedom to continue doing what I love.”
Big congratulations to everyone who finished the 2014 CrossFit Open. We had a great turnout and everyone came out better on the other side. Huge challenges were met and overcome with each and every workout. Now it is time to hit up a few benchmark workouts to grease the gears. If you’ve never done any of the girls well now is your chance to get serious. Today marks day 1 on your training calendar, dog ear your notebooks to today because we are going to get busy and do work.
