What Supplements Do You Take Bro?


Alright I did it! CrossFit Redding has decided to stock supplements. We struggled with this for many reasons: 1)      Hey members buy this because we say so… 2)      Oh you should be taking protein, BCAA’s and blah blah blah We just happened to sell it. 3)      All the cool CrossFitter’s are taking this so should you to! That’s a bunch of BS and cheesy sell tactics! In that past we’ve tried a lot of diff

Member Of The Month July


For the July Member of the Month we are featuring none other than CHAR! I remember the first day Char walked into the gym. We thought there's no way she's staying. Char has been an amazing addition to CrossFit Redding she has been there through all of memorable moments. From moves to parties, and competitions to cleaning, Char has been part of our community. Interesting fact, Char was one of the first women to get a muscle up and can do

I’ll Take The Road To Recovery


As most of you know by now, I had surgery on my right shoulder 4.5 months ago. It was a long time coming for me.... Years of not taking care of my shoulder and doing too much lead to it hurting constantly, having multiple shots to mask the pain until I finally decided let's fix this thing for good! So I had the shoulder capsule tightened, a bone spur removed and arthritis cut out. Nothing major torn so that was a relief! Having a surgery and h

A New Look For The New 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. (ask if you need a new one) You can also download and use the Zen Planner app on your smart phone to sign i

VENI VIDI VICI


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. Bryan: Lifting shoes, lifting belt, athletic tape, Rock Tape, two jump ropes, a pair of gloves, a lacrosse ball and a shaker bottle an extra pair of shorts and T-shirt. I do carry two jump ropes because it is inevitable that one will break right

LUCKY NUMBER 7


In mid-2007 and after an 8 months of screwing around and CrossFitting with friends in living rooms, parks, and globo-gyms I decided that CrossFit Redding needed somewhere to call its own. No more weird looks, no more “hey, you can’t do that here”. We needed our own space. On April 15, 2008 after a meeting with and Kevin, Jacob we found a building and opened the doors of what is now CrossFitRedding. The blue doors opened to Redding’s firs

GETTING WITH THE PROGRAM


“I WAS SITTING HERE, EATING MY MUFFIN AND DRINKING MY COFFEE AND REPLAYING THE INCIDENT IN MY HEAD, WHEN I HAD WHAT ALCOHOLICS REFER TO AS A MOMENT OF CLARITY.” ~Jules Ok really, I was programming and thinking about how much CrossFit has changed since CFR’s inception in 2007. Mainly, in regards to programming, and more specifically, our gym, we started using BEYOND THE WHITEBOARD on July 6, 2010 which allows us to look back at CrossFit R
