A New Look For The New Year.


The New Year is Here-2017; we’re a month in which means it’s time to start tightening stuff we’ve slacked on throughout the year. Checking into classes or open gym- It is the expectation that you sign in to class using your keytag or the Zen Planner app. We’ve reprinted everyone’s lost keytags and the scanner is up and running.

We get asked a lot what you should have in your gym bag? Well there is no definitive list on what you should have in your bag. The coaches weighed in on what they carry to the gym or to a competition.

I do carry two jump ropes because it is inevitable that one will break right

FAREWELL ZEPEDA’S


As some of you may know, Raul is leaving. Raul and Shalea have decided to move to Bend, Oregon. I would like to wish them all the best. Shalea was one of the original members at CrossFit Redding 1.0. It has been a blast watching her grow into an athlete and a friend to the CFR community. Shalea’s enthusiasm and personality will surely be missed. I remember Shalea’s first fundamentals, as well her first muscle up, and her many other successes

Y’ALL NEVER STOP INSPIRING ME


I was watching the WOD today and as people were finishing there was that satisfaction of completing something you didn’t think was possible. People high-fived each other, there were a few fist bumps and even asweaty hug or two-which is one of the greatest aspects that has CrossFit has brought to fitness. It is really no different here at CrossFit Redding. We challenge you daily, we want you to compete against yourself, we want you to challenge
