Mobility “Boom” Session Sunday at 12pm: What is it and why?

From “We learned that 98% of orthopedic injuries are preventable and that athletes simply lacked an understanding of simple mechanics and the tools to improve those mechanics.”

Hmmm that is a statistic worth thinking about and one that as CrossFitters should spark some interest in mobility and some mechanics behind our bodies. We do muscle taxing and amazing workouts consistently. So, taking care of the aftermath we put our bodies through is imperative. Professional athletes have teams of people to help them with pre and post workout mobility. These athletes know that they need to release lactic acid, stimulate blood flow for recovery and increase joint flexibility consistently to be ready for a game or practice daily. At CrossFit Verve, we recognize these great benefits and have worked to help you reap the same benefits!!  On Sunday, we are focusing on the upper body, starting with shoulder work and ending with some back work. We will practice some oldie-but-goodie techniques and learn a few new tricks to make our shoulders supple. I look forward to seeing there. Bring your best Freddy Kreuger face!!!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our CrossFit Verve team and family at our Open House and Vendor Fair on Saturday!  The event was a huge success and the money raised will all go to directly support our competitor’s travel to represent Verve at the SouthWest Regionals May 29-June 2.  Thank you to all our friendly vendors for sharing their passions with us, especially Noble Savage, RedBoots Limousine, eden, TenderBelly Bacon, Mya Therapy, Evolution Snax, and Rodan & Fields.  And a special thanks to Ali Nichols who put together an amazing spread of homemade paleo baked goods all from the goodness of her heart!
