PRE-REGISTRATION ENFORCEMENT- EFFECTIVE 11/30! Moving forward with enforcing registration for classes. As you all know this has been challenging between issues with Motion Soft and getting everyone in the habit. Based on the upcoming holiday, we will be enforcing this 11/30. 25 person limit per class. 1.) Pre-register 2.) Check-in prior to class scheduled time upon arriving at TC at the CF Balance-Thomas Circle IPAD 3.) If you do not pre-register- there will be a whiteboard to write your name on a first come basis. All pre-registrants will get first priority and those on the list may join class at the class time. 4.) Therefore- you must be to class on time; no excuses. In an effort to have things run smoothly, all coaches are making sure that classes will begin and end within the hour. Thanks for your patience with this and please get in the habit of familiarizing yourself with pre-registering. There are sheets at the front desk to grab with instructions.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK! Please check out our schedule for updates and be mindful of the mandatory pre-registration starting next week. In anticipation of Thanksgiving, I wanted to express on behalf of coaches and staff of CF Balance how thankful we are for all your support and efforts in training over this year. Our community is you! The moments of appreciation and gratification of our community are endless: whether it is seeing a movement click for someone new, improvements in form, PRs, the great energy of a partner workout with lots of encouragement, emails received from the successes of you all training, social media posts of you all connecting outside the gym, and times connecting with you all in and out of the gym. “Thanksgiving after all is a word of action- WJ Cameron.” This quote came to mind as I wanted to share with you some improvements and updates that will affect us over the next couple weeks: 1.) Enforcing the pre-registration policy to ensure the quality of coaching and workouts. 2.) Bringing on an additional coach to ensure that we will have two coaches for larger classes. Craig will be back coaching for the next couple months and Jordan McGillis who is coaching both at CF Balance Glover and Georgetown will be helping out in some of the morning classes! 3.) New flooring- this will be in mid-December 4.) Equipment wish list- we will be taking suggestions for any new equipment over the next couple months. 5.) New space at CF Balance Glover! Despite the fact that many of you come to TC as it is convenient, our membership also includes use of all Balance Gym affiliates. As we grow, we are also able to offer more specialty classes including additional: Barbell classes (all locations offer these), Endurance (currently at Cardoza track, but both Georgetown and Glover will be offering these), and Gymnastics (additional one at Georgetown and also offered at Foggy Bottom). We are working on creating a calendar for these on the website to make it easier to pull up the times/locations. You should all take advantage of these! 6.) HOLIDAY PARTY! DATE DETERMINED- Friday, December 4th! Details are coming soon!

Did you know we also specialize in working with youth and high school sport athletes? This population of athletes have developing bodies that require meticulous attention and training to ensure that they are progressing in the right direction. Training with our coaches and in our methods provide them with a variety of benefits, including: - Dramatically reducing the prevalence of injuries that often occur as a result of sport specialization, lack of proper movement patterns and/or being pushed into situations that their bodies just aren't ready for. We recognize these problems, and train solutions to combatting them. - Learning the proper way to lift under the supervision of our coaches in a small group environment. Oftentimes, weight rooms have tremendously out of balance instructor:student ratios, and the proper attention is not given to each athlete. For developing athletes who can be prone to peer pressure to lift heavy weights without sufficient technique, this can (and often does) result in life altering injuries. This is especially true in lifts like Cleans, Squats and Deadlifts. Our coaches specialize in coaching these lifts. We have 1 CSCS coach, 3 USAW Weightlifting coaches and 5 CrossFit coaches, so we really, really know how to coach this stuff. - Properly preparing for their season. Unfortunately, youth athletes often go from 0 to Full Speed in their respective sports from season to season. Some kids have been playing other sports, and some haven't been doing anything. Changing gears like that can be hard on a young body if considerations aren't taken and/or they haven't been preparing adequately. Our properly and progressively planned conditioning work allows for these athletes to be properly prepared to get going in practices and games as soon as season starts. - Team building in the pre-season. Before seasons start and courts/fields are available, training as a team in our facility can provide for an environment that allows for practicing together as a team before they might normally be able to. Athletes that often take a few weeks to get to know each other get a head start in here. Plus, they have a lot of fun! We're currently booked on teams through March 11th, but will be available in Spring for more teams. Our Youth Strength and Conditioning Class happens every MWF at 6:30pm and every Saturday at 9am. Email kenny@crossfitsandpoint.com for more information.
