The Next “Trial by Fire”:

We’ll be having a gym-wide annual test-in opportunity for our Advanced “Firebreather’s” Class on Saturday, August 25 @ 10:30am.

This is your chance to find out how far your training has come, and put both your mind & body to the test and see if you have what it takes to train at the next level.

Traditionally only a small fraction of those who take this test pass it.  Each time we test, usually around 15 will take it on, and only 1-3 at the most will pass.

I can’t help but wonder who will be the next Firebreather?

No matter your ability level, there is always something more to train for. It’s going to be a really special and amazing day and I’d love to have as many members of our community as possible out to support those who are brave enough to give it their all.

…and what’s the best way to prepare for this test??


“Trial by Fire” Training Begins:

Starting THIS Saturday, August 4 and then continuing on the 11th & 18th, I will be hosting three very special “Trial by Fire” training sessions in the specialty class time slot from 10:30am-12:00pm.

These will be specifically programmed to work toward the types of challenges you’ll find in that test.

If you’re planning on taking the test on the 25th, this is a great opportunity to work on the holes in your game and try to improve both your mechanics & your engine in preparation.

Even if you’re nowhere near ready to take on TBF, this class is for you too! We’ll be working on pacing strategies, mental resilience, timing, gymnastics technique, & barbell cycling.

These are all things that will be incredibly value to all members in consideration for not just the every day WODs, but every day life. Join us!


Kitten Yoga:
You read that right! And now, a few words from Coach Lura:
“Join us at CFHV for a Kitten Yoga class on Saturday, August 18th from 3-4pm. Everyone is welcome! We will have lots of adorable and adoptable kittens running around the gym as you do yoga. All proceeds will go to Kitten Rescue Los Angeles.
Kitten Rescue was founded in the spring of 1997 and has grown to be one of the largest and most respected animal welfare groups in Los Angeles. They are a non-profit, volunteer-run organization devoted to finding loving new homes for unwanted, homeless cats and kittens.
Kitten Rescue volunteers place over 1,000 cats and kittens into homes every year. Since they began, over 17,000 cats (and counting!) have been rescued and placed into loving homes.
This 1-hour beginner friendly yoga session filled with kittens of all kinds. After yoga there will be a 1-hour adoption event where you can get to know your future furry friends even better. If you are attending the yoga session please arrive at 2:45pm.”
