Kitten Yoga THIS Saturday:

Join us at CFHV for a Kitten Yoga class on THIS Saturday, August 18th from 3-4pm. Everyone is welcome! We will have lots of 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.
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.

BodySpec Truck Returns:

Every time I schedule one of these, it is SOLD OUT within only a few hours of posting the blog. That’s why this time the truck will be here ALL DAY, from 8:00am – 4:00pm.

The Body-Spec truck will be coming to CFHV on Saturday, September 15. This is the most advanced body scan available and is incredibly thorough in giving you important insights to your health.

BodySpec performs body fat and body composition testing using a truck equipped with a DXA scanner. In a fully-clothed 10 minute scan, you’ll learn more about your body than you’ve ever known. Their scanners measure body fat, muscle and bone, not only on a whole body- but also a regional basis.

What to expect:

  • body fat percentage & weight
  • lean muscle percentage & weight
  • bone density
  • imbalances in fat/muscle
  • where on your body you hold your fat

As you continue to get scans over the months & years, all of your data is stored and builds easy to read graphs and charts to check your progress.

Spots will fill up fast and this is open to the public, so make sure to book your slot now here: https://www.bodyspec.com/scan- me/CrossFit_High_Voltage/2018-04- 14


Trial by Fire Training- Final Week:

The last two Saturday’s TBF training sessions have been some of my favorite classes to coach ever! These are from 10:30-12:00 on Saturdays, and specifically programmed to work toward the types of challenges you’ll find in the “Trial by Fire” test.

If you’re planning on taking the test, 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.

NEXT Saturday, August 25 we have our Annual CFHV “Trial by Fire” Advanced Class test-in!

This training will be incredibly valuable to all members in consideration for not just the every day WODs, but every day life. Join us!


ALSO as a great way to recover from that TBF test next week we’ll have Coach Christy Manchester on hand to help keep you mobile and healthy after all that hard work.

At CFHV we are always looking to expand the services we offer by partnering with talented individuals in the fitness & wellness industries. We are excited to announce that we will now be offering massage therapy services including Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Sports Massage.
Coach Christy has been a certified massage practitioner for over 8 years. To celebrate this new partnership we will be blocking off the afternoon of the TBF test to provide massages on premises for a lucky few members.
The cost will be $35 for a 30 minute massage, and our available times are: 12:00, 12:40,1:20, 2:00, 2:40, & 3:20.
If you are one of the brave athletes taking on the Firebreather’s Test that morning, you might just want to treat yourself to a massage to help speed your recovery.
Please RSVP by contacting Christy directly at christy@crossfithighvoltage.com
