It could improve by not pushing coaches out every 6 months
Hey Bentura Flores whatโ€™s the WOD for
Tomorrow am? (Cc: Heidi and Eleanor)
I walked into this place (key is "they take walk ins") after a grueling week of WODs and came out feeling amazing. Affordable bodywork - highly recommend.

Get ready for more oly lifting! Today is all about snatch and overhead squats for our strength portion. We use these first few weeks of the cycle to dial in proper mechanics before we increase weight and get new 3-rep max numbers.

CrossFit SoLa would be nothing without these two women: Deb Smith and Jess Appel.

Deb has been a part of the SoLa family since the gym was founded in 2013.

Jess, who runs every single little thing you see and feel in the background, is the glue. We would be nothing without her help.

Happy International Women's Day to two truly amazing ladies of SoLa.

Timeline photos 03/07/2022

Not only are we celebrating Women's History Month by posting some of our favorite ladies, but we're also going to see a few of our favorite CrossFit benchmark workouts...all named after ladies. ๐Ÿฅณ

Why are CrossFit benchmarks named after women?

According to CrossFit Founder, Greg Glassman, he named the benchmark workouts after girls in similar way that storms are named after girls by the National Weather Service. He felt that, because these workouts are so physically demanding, they leave you feeling as if a storm had just hit you.

Meet @ddematteo23, our February Member of the Month! Dominique has been with us for 2 years and is crushing her goals lately. We can't wait to see how she progresses throughout the year.

What is the "personal best" you're most proud of during your time with us at Sola Fitness?
Hard to pick just one! Iโ€™ve learned so much in 2.5 years. Iโ€™d never done any real barbell work before Crossfit, so learning how to power/hang clean, snatch, OH squat, etc. and building up strength was huge. Also proud that Iโ€™ve learned new skills like handstand walks, rope climbs, and double unders - the struggle with dubs was (and still is) REAL, so pretty pumped to finally be able to string them together.

What do you enjoy most about the Sola facility and community?
The community at SoLa is by far the most enjoyable aspect of the gym for me. I love the support that everyone has for each other, and how welcoming everyone is. Stay with it and keep showing up. Donโ€™t get discouraged by movements you canโ€™t do yet and donโ€™t let prescribed weights scare you. Progress takes time, so keep showing up and working hard.

What is the next fitness goal you're trying to achieve?
Muscle ups
