Just running head on into a new week!!  Hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July!!  This week is back to the grind!  And lots going on…fABtastic booty & core class is on for this Wednesday at 5:30!  Info sessions for the 2nd Nutrition Coaching Collective are happening this week.  Wednesday at 4:30pm or 6pm or Saturday at

In the wake of SuperFit being cancelled this Saturday, we decided to host a little pop-up competition in it’s place, FyreFit 2019!  More details will be announced tomorrow and sign-up should go live!  We will have RX and scaled divisions with MM/FF/Co-Ed and registration fees will go towards cash prizes.  Workouts will start at 8:30am and we should be finished by 3.  We will cap each division with 5 teams, so be sure to sign up as soon as we go live!!  And if you’d like to volunteer to judge, let us know ASAP!

We still have 3 spots open in the handstand clinic for this Sunday at 1:30pm with Coach Jen!!  $20 and a spot can belong to you!  We will have Open Gym from 10:30-12 Sunday since the handstand clinic is after Oly.  Be sure to note that switch!

Lastly, Dr. Amy is running her small group Functional Fitness Focus Camp starting Tuesday, July 30th!  The class will meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings (6:45-7:45am) for 8 weeks, focusing on understanding the need for strengthening the foundation of human movement by utilizing some aspects of therapeutic exercises (as seen in physical therapy) mixed with single arm/leg training for enhancing movement balance, all while preparing you for the CrossFit Games 2019 Open this fall.  Amy is limiting the group to the first 5 to join, so contact her today to secure your spot!

The Fuel Method Coaching Collective Winners!!!

We shared the exciting group results from our very first Small Group Nutrition Coaching Collective with The Fuel Method this past week – 9 athletes, 8 weeks, and a whopping 70 inches and 50.5 pounds lost!!!  Really incredible!  Mostly because each of these athletes was already a member of our gym and participating in workouts!  They weren’t new to exercise, to CrossFit or RISE, just learning how FUEL their bodies in order to achieve better performance, to find better balance, and to achieve their aesthetic goals!

Not everyone that works with Alex and The Fuel Method is looking to lose weight.  Sometimes its more about overall health, a healthy relationship with food, and sometimes the non-scale victories are an even bigger deal!!  So be sure to read up on our winners and all their successes!

Today, we highlight our top 3 winners!!!  Without further adieu…

In FIRST PLACE – CASSIE STECK

Weight: -5 lbs
Inches: -7.5 inches
Non-scale victories reported: improved sleep, increased energy levels, increased self-confidence, improved workouts and recovery, clothes fitting better, self-monitoring portion sizes / alcohol while on vacation, decreased cravings, paying closer attention to habits and triggers, paying attention to hunger/fullness cues, friends noticing, inspiring others too!
“I have tried fad diets and would lose some weight but it was never maintainable. I went into this challenge not expecting result right away but once I started working with Alex, it all became so easy! I feel satisfied throughout my day (and I can actually eat more than what I was having before!) and still eating all my normal foods with a few tweaks to make it healthier. I work nights and my energy level has been great, I’ve noticed a huge difference after my night shifts! My sleep has improved dramatically, I wake up feeling more rested. After 5 years of Crossfit, I feel stronger in my workouts and that I’m recovering better. This is definitely something I can see myself doing long-term!!!”

SECOND PLACE – ELIZABETH PATTERSON

Weight: -10 lbs
Inches: -12 inches
Non-scale victories reported: improved energy levels and strength in the gym, decreased cravings, self-control / self-monitoring, paying closer attention to triggers and healthy/unhealthy habits, paying closer attention to hunger/fullness cues

A Look Ahead : Programming Week of 06/17

Have you RSVP’d to our 6 Year Anniversary Pool Party yet!?  The Blounts are so graciously hosting us at their pool, Saturday, June 29th starting at 4pm.  New Wrap Order will be there, selling some delish food, CFP will provide some beverages and dessert, and fun will be had by the whole (fit) family!  Just be sure to RSVP to our event in our private FB page.  And if you’re not part of group, let us know so we can add you!!

The results are in!!  We will be announcing our Small Group Nutrition Coaching Collective winner this week!  In about 8 weeks time, the 9 participants who worked with The Fuel Method collectively lost almost 70 inches and 50.5 pounds!!!  What!?!?  This is SO amazing because these were all members of our gym.  They already had the exercise part down, they come in consistently and get their workouts done.  But now, they took charge of their nutrition, were fueling their bodies, and the successes followed.  We can’t wait to highlight our winner, the runners up, and all the successes and takeaways that had nothing to do with the scale!!  So stay tuned!

We will be launching our next Small Group Nutrition Coaching Collective in 4 short weeks, on Monday July 15th!!!  More details to come, including dates for info sessions, and steps to get signed up with Alex and The Fuel Method.
