This week at CrossFit Preferred

  • Olympic Weightlifting Class – We are extremely excited for our first olympic weightlifting class that will be on Wednesday night from 6-8 and will continue every Wednesday night. This class will replace the regular 6 and 7 pm CrossFit classes. We hope you can all come out and learn some great things from Mike Parra that will help you with your lifts.
  • Nutrition Class and Recipe Exchange – We will be having another Nutrition Class this Thursday May 5th at 7 pm. We will be talking about supplements, what to take and what not to take for recovery, muscle building etc. We will also go over pre workout and post workout meals, carbohydrate timing throughout the day and carb loading. We will also be doing a recipe exchange this night as well so if you have a favorite healthy recipe please make and bring it along with copies of the recipe to share with others. You DO NOT have to bring a recipe to participate in the nutrition class.  But it’s always more fun when events have food!!
