Why we dropped our CrossFit Affiliation…

As some of you may have noticed, we changed our name from CrossFit Pincher Creek to Consistent Fitness Pincher Creek. Dropping our Crossfit Affiliation has been on my mind for a while now but this decision happened a little quicker than I expected.

We have had the affiliation with CrossFit for seven years now. I love CrossFit and all that it has done for my business as well as me personally. I love and live the CrossFit lifestyle – not just the workouts, but the community, the nutrition, and the way of life; but what CrossFit does for us as an affiliate is pale in comparison to what our community has become because of our members.

I don’t want to go into details as to what goes into being an affiliate, but I will say that for us it just doesn’t seem logical to continue carrying the name “CrossFit” in our small town. While I will always love CrossFit, the political side of it is something I choose not to be involved in at this time.

So What Changes?

Simply put – the name. We wanted to keep the CFPC, and since Consistency is my favorite word when it comes to success in any area of our lives, it just made sense to change our name to Consistent Fitness Pincher Creek (CFPC).

Our Programming and Customer Service will remain the same. Our pursuit to strive towards offering our members the very best product will continue to move forward.

We do have a new website up and running, its www.cfpinchercreek.com. You should be getting an email shortly asking you to Confirm your new subscription to the new website as any future blogs will be coming from there.

What’s Next

You can look forward to some exciting things in September as we are working on a few fun things this summer to add to our gym to make it even better!

Please, if you have any questions or concerns on this do not hesitate to contact me! I am always happy to answer questions and listen to suggestions.

CFPC Upcoming Events – June 2019

Murph 2019

Murph was awesome this year! It was great to see athletes pushing themselves to a new level. We saw some weight vests come out of the closet, some new skills being shown off, and all around a great attitude towards such a long and gruelling workout. I can’t wait to see what next year brings!

Movement Seminar Recap

Thank you to everyone that came out to the movement seminar. We started with a movement assessment so participants could get a better understanding of how our bodies move, where we are tight and how that can affect our performance in and outside the gym.   Each of us moves differently and its important to find what works best for us as individuals.  Mobility and stability work can often be skipped over when we don’t understand why we are doing it or we just “don’t have time.”  When we understand what we need as individuals to help move better and how proper movement can help us improve performance and quality of life – we are often a lot more motivated to fit it into our daily routine.


CFPC 5k Fun Run

CFPC is hosting a fun run!! As a wind up for our Running Club, we will be hosting a 5km fun run open to EVERYONE.  Good for the whole family! It will start at the gym at 5:30pm.  Meet at the back door (by the Spray Park).

Everyone who attends will get a FREE CFPC pair of Sunglasses!

Please note, this is unofficial run. The trail will not be flagged, intersections are not controlled and there are no water stations. You are running/jogging/walking at your own risk.

CFPC Golf Day

CFPC is having a Golf Day! Anyone can come and join in on the fun, even if you’ve never golfed before! This will be a very casual event. Tee-times are booked. We will split into groups of 4 and each group can decide if they want to play traditionally or best-ball or whatever.  Then we’ll have some drinks at the clubhouse and see where our afternoon goes from there.

Golf course rules are no tanks and everyone must have their own clubs (you can rent if needed). Regular golf fees and cart rentals apply.  Each golfer can pay the clubhouse when we check in.  Everyone should try to come around 2:00 so we have time to pay and sort ourselves out before our tee times.

Anyone who wants to golf MUST be signed up on the sheet at the fountain by June 6th.


Summer Games

CFPC is hosting the Strength & Conditioning competition for the Southern Alberta Summer Games! Registration deadline is Friday, June 14th! Price is $20 and the entry forms are printed off and sitting on the table beside the couch here at the gym. Just take one, fill it out, and give it to the rec office (the office across from the gym). Everyone can participate; we even have a kids division!

If you’re not interested in competing but would still like to help out, we need volunteers! We have also printed Volunteer forms out and they are also sitting on the table beside the couch in the gym.


Apparel & Stuff

We are considering doing another apparel order. If you want anything, LET US KNOW! We are also bringing in some new cool swag stuff… keep your eyes open!

YETI

We are looking into getting personalized CFPC Yeti mugs! We will have forms above the fountain with more information and specs if you want to order one. These are not cheap – BUT totally worth it. (IMHO)

Movement Seminar

We all know the importance of proper mobility and movement mechanics, but most of us have a hard time implementing a good mobility routine into our lives. In this movement seminar we will go over a small movement test to see how your body is tight; and uncover some of the common movement restrictions we see that can be holding us back from moving and performing our best. We can then cover some mobility drills that you can do pre/post training specific to your needs.

  • Movement Assessment
  • Mobility work for common areas of tightness
  • Stability work for common areas of weakness
  • Applying this to daily life and the movements we perform.

Saturday, May 25th, 2019 @ 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Cost is $20
