Great things Happening This Week in The Cave!

BackFlip Workshop


Have you signed up yet? Join us on Saturday, November 1st, 2014 for a workshop on the back flip (ALL skill levels welcome). Using various equipment and trampolines, beginners will run through a series of drills to demystify the back flip and take some of the fear out of the equation. Those who already know how to do a back flip (or are close!) will be given challenges to help improve form or learn new variations.  This workshop is ideal for parkour athletes, free runners, crossfitters, trickers, dancers, gymnasts, cheerleaders, and anyone who likes to MOVE! Space is limited to 20 athletes only!
Ages 9-13 sign up here: http://www.inthecave.com/events?eventid=146
Ages 14+ (adults too!): http://www.inthecave.com/events?eventid=147

Gymnastics Seminar
We’re doing it again.  We have another gymnastics seminar coming up on Saturday, November 8th from 1:00-7:30pm. Led by Roger Harrell, founder of the CrossFit Gymnastics Certification program, this hands-on seminar focuses on learning and improving gymnastics movements. You will hear how these skills truly break down in order to work toward mastery. Not only will attendees be taught how to best execute gymnastics elements, but how to teach them as well. Key safety concerns will be covered so that these elements can be introduced into programs without endangering students.  To register,click here or visit: http://www.inthecave.com/events?eventid=140.
CrossFit Competitions:
Is your name on the board??? This month we kicked off some GREAT in-house competitions, both the Challenge WOD and Monthly Skill Challenge , which are underway.  We’d love for you to participate!  Questions about rules, scoring, feedback or needing a judge?  E-mail Dana@inthecave.com.

Who is that guy who has been subbing and helping out with the parkour classes this week? That would be JB Douglass.

JB was invited to come to our American Ninja Warrior Open Audition back in Feburary.  He’s a friend of Zack Weldon and Christian Fairfax and used to coach parkour, gymnastics, freerunning, Kid’s Night Out and Birthday parties in Rohnert Park gymnastics.  He competed with us in American Ninja Warrior 4 down at Venice during the qualifiers in early March and he coached the parkour classes on Monday and has been helping out in the gym all this week.  If you watched the ANW 4 trailer that I posted last night you may have noticed him towards the end.  They didn’t actually show him doing anything, just screaming.  Here’s a little video of some of his basketball,… ummm,… parkour skillz:

I love The Beatles, don’t you?  Who do you like more, Elvis or The Beatles?  (Pulp Fiction!)  Post thoughts to comments.

JB is a passionate coach and loves to teach.  If you see him around the gym, feel free to introduce yourself and maybe even ask him for some pointers for your 3-point shot or your double-Kong or precisions.

As a side note, we are still trying to figure out the logistics for the American Ninja Warrior viewing party on May 21st.  We’ll let you know when we do.
