Although designed not to bounce, our goal in slam ball is to throw the ball down so powerfully you can catch the ball off of the tiny bounce it produces IF you keep your hands low to the ground.

Not only do we have Daylight Savings taking an hour away, but we’ll begin a testing phase with the CGO beginning this weekend. Regardless of how you feel of the organization the past year we’re going to take the workout and simply use them in programming, specifically on Saturdays for the next three weeks. Classes will also feature a handful of tests that allow us to aim our programming and guide you to increasing your fitness.

If you want to play along you still have a chance to register under Foundation. This will be my 11th year participating. This should be a nice spark to kickstart some training commitment for many, myself included.

See you Saturday where we will test out one-hour classes. RSVP via PushPress!

FCF offers a Barbell Class twice a week with two tracks athletes can follow. 1.) an Olympic Weightlifting track where the primary lifts are the SNATCH and the CLEAN & JERK. 2.) a Powerlifting track where the primary lifts are the back squat, bench press, and deadlift.
