April with Amplify

AN IMPORTANT NOTE FROM MIKE AND THE AMPLIFY TRAINERS

CrossFit Amplify is Turning TWO!
We would like to say THANK YOU for all the love, support, and hard work all of you have given CrossFit Amplify over the past two years.  As a gym, the members and coaches have grown so much and we’re looking forward to a bright future.  Make sure to join us on April 28 for our Anniversary WOD!

Going into a new Amplify “year,” Mike would like to touch on a few subjects: paleo challenge winners, gym appearance/atmosphere, and programming/goals.

Paleo Challenge
The goal for every nutrition challenge is to learn to eat clean and healthy.  By doing this you look better, feel better, perform better, and live better!  I believe a good first step for many is knowing what you are eating every day and that involves logging your food daily.  Without you all knowing, the real test this time was seeing who was going to stick with logging their food no matter what you were consuming.  So, in leading by example and truly making an effort towards better living, the winners are Doug RudolphMike Burns, and Kendra Panek.  Also, I believe and see that it is no coincidence that these three have made the biggest improvements in the gym over the past 4 weeks.  I also want to give a shout out to Vid R., Eric W., Deb W., Amy D., and Tom M. for their food logs and work during this time too!

Gym Appearance & Atmosphere
As you have seen this past week Amplify has had a makeover and has grown significantly over the past 3 months.  The appearance has been a focus for the past few months, starting with the bathroom, entrance, pull-up bars, platforms, and more equipment.  All of this is done for YOU!  So to help keep it this way please continue to help clean up after every class period.  As far as the atmosphere goes, it has improved over the past few months with the increase of membership.  Let’s continue to encourage and support each other while lifting and cheer each other on during the WODs.  You don’t have to be a zombie; lets show the CrossFit community who AMPLIFY is!!  Also, on a side note, summer BBQs will be coming back starting in June!

Amplify Programming & Goals
As members and as a gym, we all should have goals! Amplify’s main goal is for everyone to be educated in mobility, proper lifting form & techinque, nutrition, and to improve overall strength & conditioning.  We also need short term goals to keep us focus through the year.  Amplify’s next goal is to have a larger group attendance for the Murph for Miller charity event May 26.  This workout will require running and bodyweight conditioning.  Therefore, starting in April we will run at least twice a week and focus on push-ups, pull-ups and air squats.  But of course don’t forget the passion for olympic lifts the Amplify coaches have… we will be focusing on these more than ever!

Looking forward to PRs, growth, and a great community in year 3!!

Thank you!
Amplify Trainers: Dan, Sean, Scott, and the one and only Mike Viall (aka, Boom, Bang, and Dragon)

“I joined Amplify a little over a year ago, and it was the BEST decision I ever made. The CrossFit community is like no other gym I have ever been too. CrossFit Ampliy is a family. The environment is extremely welcoming and the people are encouraging. The trainers are knowledgeable and helpful. The workouts are varied and always a challenge. If you want to change the way you think about fitness, you should come check out Amplify. I have lost 47 pounds over the year with a lot of grit & determination & so much support it has been amazing. I have gained flexibility, strength, stamina and endurance. NO EXCUSES! Give it a try!!!”

“I sat down this afternoon intending to type out some letter that explained how I got to where I am and what brought me to Amplify. I closed that document, thinking what I wrote sounded stupid. Then I looked at the Amplify website and saw the same thing I saw when I first walked into the box in May:

AM •PLI•FY

To make greater or more powerful; increase.

To add or expand, in volume or significance; make complete .

CrossFit Amplify did exactly what I had hoped when I decided to give it a shot. I’m much stronger than I was 3 months ago. I expected that and I knew that would happen. What I didn’t expect was the second part.

You can say it means weight on a barbell, or you can say it means you got bigger/slimmer, or anything else that you want. But today, reading that definition it meant only one thing to me:  family.

CrossFit Amplify expanded my family. It gave me a bigger family. My Amplify family makes me feel complete.  In every conditioning I had a helping hand, guiding me and showing me how to do something the right way. In every workout I had someone cheering me on or pushing me to be stronger. There are some workouts I would not have been able to do had it not been for that motivation from my Amplify family.

Amplify will always be home. It will be where my heart is. And above all else it will my Amplify family that I think about when any workout seems too tough.

Thank you all for being a part of one of the best summer’s of my life and for being a continuing inspiration to me in all that I do.”

“I was so impressed by some of my results during the Paleo challenge. My deadlift and back squat each increased by 30 punds in 5 weeks. I shaved almost 3 minutes off one of the conditioning benchmarks as well. I realized that when your eating habits are in sync with your gym habits, you are unstoppable. I had more energy overall and was able to push myself through workouts with fewer breaks. I would like to go back to Paleo again for a longer amount of time.

I would recommend [the Paleo diet] because you are guaranteed to see results if you really commit yourself to eating clean. I still buy better ingredients and cook almost every meal for myself because of the Paleo challenge. You have the choice to make it a temporary or more permanent lifestyle change, but either way you owe it to your body to give it your best effort.”
