Don’t worry. We should be done with “snow days” for this year.
CROSSFIT SUPERSTARS SARA SIGMUNDSDOTTIR AND BJORGVIN GUDMUNDSSON TRY MMA Video that’s fun to watch if you’re a fan of CrossFit and MMA. Be advised, everyone in the video is speaking Icelandic, but there are English subtitles. Fun Factoid: the male MMA trainer in the video is UFC fighter Gunnar Nelson. Gunnar did pull-ups on the pull-up bars that grace the East wall of CrossFit Suffolk back when they were in the “old gym”. Gunnar was visiting Alex Vamos when we shared a gym with Vamos Mixed Martial Arts.

CROSSFIT STRIKING WORKSHOP APRIL 29TH The workshop is $349.00 The workshop is taught by the CrossFit Striking founder, George Ryan.
The CrossFit Workshop: Striking is a single-day immersive experience that teaches participants how to increase overall fitness, core strength, rotational speed and power by incorporating striking drills into CrossFit workouts. Strikes are some of the most functional movements because punching and kicking with true power, speed and accuracy require people to utilize their entire body. This is why fighters are some of the most well-conditioned and powerful athletes in the world.
With this in mind, the Striking Workshop is designed to teach participants to incorporate basic mixed-martial-arts, boxing and self-protection striking concepts into workouts. The course also teaches attendees to program these skills into workouts for greater variance. All this is done in a non-contact format that focuses on proper technique by using shadow boxing, focus mitts, kick shields and a heavy bag.
