You may bring more than one friend; your friend(s) may come both Monday and Wednesday; you may come to any class on those days, whatever is the best fit for your schedules.

…Improve Wrist Flexibility And Strength

A couple of weeks ago, we worked on shoulder and hip mobility to enhance flexibility. However, hands up those who could use a little more  wrist flexibility. Wrist flexibility and strength are important to being able to function injury-free, whether at work, home or at the gym.

Here is a link to some very simple yet effective stretches and exercises that can be done anywhere, at work, at home, in the grocery store checkout line, in the car while waiting at the lights; no excuses.

…Be Less Of A Kitchen Catastrophe/More Of A Culinary Ninja

Chipotle Turkey Chili with Butternut Squash

Paleo Nick will be visiting T2 CrossFit on Saturday, 7 April 2018. The workshop includes instruction on and discussions about the Zone Diet, food blocks (carbs, proteins and fats), food preparation and also cooking some delicious food. You go home with a wealth of knowledge and 16 servings of awesome food.

“Chef Nick Massie developed the concept of “functional food,” with which he teaches people how to build balanced recipes that are packed with flavor. His course takes the mystery out of meal prep and sets the foundation for turning you from a kitchen catastrophe into a Culinary Ninja.”    CrossFit.com
