COVID-19 Update/ New Schedule
We are all counting down the days that we can fully reopen our gym. As for now we are still officially closed. However we are making the best of what we have. We are offering several CrossFit classes a day as well as Spartan classes in the evenings. Here is our new schedule starting today……
Spartan SGX Class/Endurance
5:30 am Thursday Endurance Class
7:00pm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday
All classes will be held outside the gym mostly with using the inside of the gym only when necessary. Please be sure to reserve a spot in Wodify
At Home Workouts
Not able to make it to the gym or traveling?! We have you covered! We are still offering At Home workouts on Wodify and on our website every day. Full length video links can be followed in Wodify as well. They are designed for a dumbbell or many other objects including sandbags or whatever creative training tool that you come up with!
We have these posted everyday on the Wodify App and on our site @ https://crossfitpreferred.com/blog/at-home-workout/
Spartan SGX Race/Obstacle Race Training
Each Monday, Wednesday, Thursday at 7:00pm and Saturdays at 6:00am. Coach Andrew Lucero leads this group and has helped so many people complete and compete at different obstacle course races. In this training we do not train with barbells, we train with sandbags, tires, buckets, dumbbells, kettlebells and on the pull up bars! This is a fun group and all are invited!

Aerobic Capacity is part of the Spartan Program but is so important for anybody that wants to improve in CrossFit. We have two classes per week that are specifically designed to help you improve your aerobic capacity. We have a track workout on Thursday morning at 5:30am and an aerobic capacity class at 7:00pm on Thursday nights.
The aerobic capacity class uses Assault Bikes, Rowers and running! It is a great workout!

We have a group at the gym that like to train for running races, triathlons and obstacle course racing! If you want to be a better runner you have to run:)
We have 3 running workouts per week that we provide. You can see them and our training focus right now @
Each of these different trainings are posted @ https://crossfitpreferred.com
under the BLOG Section each week.
We are excited to announce that we after much consideration and feedback from our members we will be switching back to Comptrain programming. We kicked things off Monday with a killer workout that included Front Squats for strength and a long cardio packed metcon.
We are jumping into Comptrain in the middle of a cycle. There are 3 weeks left of this cycle “Grindstone”.
Grindstone will be bridging the gap between “Hard Hat” and our road leading to The Open. Our focus in “Grindstone will be capacity building. In the beginning we were focusing on a strong base, now we are shifting to turn that strength into usable capacity in all facets of the sport.
With us jumping into this cycle in the middle we want to make sure we are focusing on hitting the stimulus of the workout and not on whether or not we hit that RX button. The coach will go over the stimulus of the workout before each class and offer substitutions for everyone. We are super excited to be back on Comptrain programming.
This months member spotlight goes out to Nikki Nee! Nikki came to us right after we opened back up in May. Nikki is currently going through basic training and officer candidate school for the Army. Her goal once she finishes school and basic training is to get into Military Intelligence with an end goal of working for UNESCO to protect world heritage sites.
CrossFit has helped Nikki’s mentality about fitness, it’s now become something that she wants to do instead of feeling like she has to do it. It’s helped give her confidence to lead workouts for other future soldiers that are leaving for basic training. Recently she did her first wall walks and was surprised how good she felt and how long she could hold it!
When Nikki started at CFP she was surprised how friendly and genuine everyone was. She felt like everyone cared about her goals and success in reaching them. This was HUGE for her coming from a sports background and always having a goal to work towards. Since the gym has been closed Nikki has been doing a great job staying consistent in her workouts.. She said, “The dogs are loving her being home and very curious about the heavy objects she keeps setting down and picking up.”
We asked Nikki what her advice would be for someone who is struggling with the at home workouts, this is what she said, “Come to the Park! It’s a great way to stay connected to the community and keep yourself accountable.”
We love having you as a part of CFP Nikki and can’t wait to open back up and crush workouts with you again!

It will be broken up into monthly, quarterly, and yearly milestones with rewards along the way! In order to achieve committed club status, you will have to attend at least 15 classes during each calendar month. At the end of each month, quarter, and year, we will recognize those individuals who have attended at least 15 classes during EACH of the coinciding calendar months.
