How Physical Fitness May Promote School Success           “Parents and exercise scientists (who, not infrequently, are the same people) have known for a long time that physical activity helps young people to settle and pay attention in school or at home, with salutary effects on academic performance. A representative study, presented in May at the American College of Sports Medicine, found that fourth- and fifth-grade students who ran around and otherwise exercised vigorously for at least 10 minutes before a math test scored higher than children who had sat quietly before the exam.”—Gretchen Reynolds, NY Times


This Saturday non-crossfitting Team Challenge members will be here to participate in a workout to raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Of America.  The fundraiser workout will be held after regular Saturday sessions.  Anyone can participate in the fundraiser workout.  There is a $20.00 donation fee.

CROSSFIT SUFFOLK FOR LONG ISLAND TEAM CHALLENGE FUND RAISING EVENT will be taking place on September 21st from 1:30-3:30pm!  The Team Challenge is the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America’s endurance training and fundraising program. Crohn’s Disease is an abnormal immune

Your shoulder is one of the most diverse joints in the human body.  For true performance there has to be a balance of stability versus mobility.  It means nothing in crossfit to be able to press your body weight and not be able to complete a full range pull-up or to have a perfect snatch with the PVC but can’t hold a 15# bar overhead.  Because of this delicate balance, we see a lot of nagging injuries in the shoulders with no pinpointed trauma.  This seminar is aimed to educate the crossfitter in the dynamics associated with the shoulder joint for increased controlled movement.

Seminar Highlights:

* Basic Shoulder Anatomy

* Basic Shoulder Kinesiology

* Mobilization and Stretching

* Strengthening and Biomechanics

* Q&A
