Friendly Reminder to Everyone! :)

To all Members, we are re-posting this from a few months ago: First and foremost… Peter and I would like to thank you all for spreading the word of CrossFit NapTown throughout the Indianapolis community. It is because of you we have such an amazing community at CFNT! We truly appreciate all of you enthusiasm and willingness to bring friends and family around. As we continue to grow, we will be constantly making changes to adapt to our members and our community. With that being said, Peter and I would like to politely ask that if you have friends or family interested in joining or trying a class at CrossFit NapTown to please do one of the following:

***(if they are from out of town visiting skip to number 2, if they are local go to number 1)

1) Invite them to one of our Intro/Beginner’s Classes on Thursday Nights at 6pm. This is a free class that allows beginners an opportunity to learn about CrossFit in a less intimidating atmosphere. During this class, we discuss the CrossFit methodologies, talk about the community atmosphere of CFNT, run through the “Baseline WOD,” and answer any and all questions.

If they (friend or family member) CANNOT attend the Thursday class, then…

2) Please email us ahead of time if you plan on bringing them to a class so we have more than one coach available to either put them through the “Baseline WOD” or work on technique. 3) Have your friend or family member email us to set up a time in which they can come in and learn more about CFNT and be put through the “Baseline WOD.” If they (friend or family member) has done or has been doing CrossFit, then… 4) Email us with a heads up letting us know they will be coming in to a class so we are prepared. We’ve encountered many individuals who claim to be proficient in CrossFit and then have found out otherwise upon arrival. Thank you ahead of time for your understanding. We understand the passion for CrossFit is spread through word of mouth and that has allowed us to continually grow. However, using the “constantly varied” method can make some of our classes more difficult to coach and more difficult for beginners to learn. We want to positively spread the CrossFit methodologies, we also what to keep technique and safety as the number one priority in our box and do not want beginners to become frustrated or intimidated by some of the workouts we encounter.  

Today’s Workout

Squat Snatch Technique 5 rounds every 5 minutes 400m run 10 squat snatch 125/85 (if your hand are fragile, please bring tape with you) rest the amount of time you have left. If you do not finish 10 squat snatches in the allotted time, you set the bar down and take off on your run again. Post 4 rope climbs or 2 min of chin over bar hold ***note this is a post workout and rope climbs are not being taught today. If you are working on them, then try to learn to just hang onto the rope with proper foot placement]]>

  1. Nice workout wish I would’ve seen this earlier, I’m going to work this WOD in next week for sure

  2. I was sweating BEFORE the warmup. That is how good Naptown is.
    3:28/4:25 33#
    Went with just the bar, but really felt like I finally mastered that squat snatch. The bar was weightless AND I got under it.
    And KIM was back today! And she is a killer runner now! Those 1000m warmups are making you a Kenyan.

  3. It’s 9:45 and I’m STILL sweating! My coworkers are a little worried about me.
    3:33 / DNF (7 Complete – just the bar)
    It was a mental battle to not give up and walk during round 4 & 5, but I didn’t. Yay me.
    Great to see you, Kim!

  4. Holy Moly! That was a tough one!
    I am pretty bad at the squat snatch so I used my usual 65lbs.
    My best round and only completed round was the 1st one at 4:17
    My worst was 5 squat snatches

  5. Artie, I agree wholeheartedly. That was TOUGH (my apologies to the 6:00 class for my wheezing).
    3:50/DNF (missed it by 2 seconds) at 35#.

  6. i did this on Thursday
    the fun part was really feeling my technique come together over the course of the workout.
    no post-WOD
