April Monster Of The Month

Congratulations to Stephanie Schembari – our March Monster of the Month! From Coach Clyde-” Every month it gets harder and harder to choose which athlete will receive the title of Monster of the Month because everyone has been putting in such hard work but this go around it was pretty simple. She stood out amongst everyone else just like she does everyday she comes into class. You can always count on Steph to walk in with a big smile on her face that lights up a room and a positive attitude that is beyond contagious. It doesn’t matter what we are doing, snatches, burpees, Turkish get-ups, running. She is just happy to be able to have an hour a day at CFP where she can work as hard as possible and make her the best possible version of herself! Steph is always eager to learn. She will hit a beautiful lift and then run up to me and ask what she can do better! If something feels off she lets me know and we work together to make sure it’s fixed before she leaves that day. You can usually see Steph sitting at the top of the leaderboard because on that 3…2…1…GO she is all hard work. No excuses. Just puts her head down and gets after it. ALWAYS with a smile on her face!! It is amazing to be able to work with an athlete like Steph daily!! Congratulations on being this months monster!! Keep up the hard work and always keep smiling!!” 1) How long have you been doing CrossFit? I have been doing CrossFit since January... read more

February Monster Of the Month

Congratulations to Mike Tucci- our February Monster of the Month! From Coach Clyde- ”When I first met Mr. Tucci aka 2Chainz aka T-Rod aka Tucc aka T-swift it was on a lonely night at 7pm. It was just me and Tucc. Coach and athlete. We got to know each other. He explained he was training for a spartan race coming up and figured CrossFit would be a great way to get ready!! Fast forward a year and then some later and Tucci is one of our most improved athletes!! You can always count on Tucci for two things. Walking in that door at 4:45 in the morning for 5am and second always always having a good laugh. Tuccis recent accomplishment include, DOUBLE UNDERS!!! Multiple back squat, front squat, and clean PRs, and now he is about to kick off his 2nd CrossFit Games Open!!! Unfortunately for Tucci he can’t avoid burpees in the open like he tends to do on a Monday or Wednesday during the week!! But one thing is for sure, when he shows up which is actually very often, he is one of the hardest workers I have seen. He leaves it all out there, doesn’t hold anything back, when the dust settles he jolts out to catch the train to the city for a days full of work but not before belting out THAT SUCKED!! SEE YOU TOMORROW!!! It’s the suck that Tucci embraces and keeps him coming back day in and day out to improve upon his fitness and his overall life!! Congrats 2Chainz!! Well deserved!!” 1)      How long have you been doing CrossFit?... read more

Get Low!

I know everyone at CFP may be tired of hearing our coaches tell you “GET DEEPER!” Well there is a science behind it and here is a brief blog post to help understand why we say this. When it comes to squatting, there seems to be only 2 mindsets.1. “Squats are bad for the knees and back.”2. “MOAR SQUATZ.” Chances are if you are reading this post you already have mindset #2. Many people have a fear of squats that is caused by inexperience and incorrect advice from uneducated individuals. They have been told that squatting (especially squatting with thighs below parallel) puts a tremendous amount of force on the knees and lower back, which will inevitably lead to serious in direct opposition of the truth. According to Emily, besides “protein” and “Im hungry”, “squat” is the word Coach Matt Clyde the most throughout the day. This is because as coaches we need to repeat our self daily to remind all of our athletes that when performed correctly, squats are the best exercise you can do for your body. The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) put this  statement out  regarding their position on the safety and effectiveness of the squat. Below is a snapshot of the 9 points of their position: According to author Rob Faign, “there is a perverse situation prevailing in gyms across America: People are doing the right exercise (squats) the wrong way (half-way down) for the right reason (to protect their knees).”  Half squats are also popular with bodybuilders who are seeking to develop large quadriceps instead of a strong posterior chain. By halting the squat half or quarter of... read more
