1. Prototype of the Month: Olivia Sassetti

    Share your CrossFit Prototype experience and fitness journey I joined CFP about three years ago because my mom (Carter) and friend (Abby) did crossfit. I joined and loved the community aspect. I then transitioned to doing olympic weightlifting with Joe about two years ago and have fell in love with lifting. Since then I have loved improving as a lifter and making incredible friends!

  2. Where does your comfort zone lie?

    I'm sure you have heard the phrase "get outside your comfort zone" before, right?! You may have even heard it at CFP because we encourage GROWTH. It is one of our core values after all : ) Many of us avoid doing the things that scare us or challenge us because of fear. The important thing to remember is that doing these things is the only way to truly grow. We talked last week about building habit…Read More

  3. The Power of a Positive Mindset

    Whether we know it or not, our mindset towards a workout and the thoughts we have before, during and after a WOD affect our abilities to perform. I want you to imagine that it's 8:00 pm and you check the WOD for tomorrow. 21-15-9 Overhead squat 95/65 Double under Toes to bar If the first thing you thought was "oh no, I can't do toes to bar!" or "dang, I can´t string 21 double unders together," th…Read More

  4. Prototype of the Month: Marty Ferguson

    Share your CrossFit Prototype experience and fitness journey Years ago I was a collegiate (and many years beyond) soccer player.  I also ran a lot and completed a couple of marathons.  All that seemed to slow to a near stop as my life got busier and busier with a young family and a crazy job as a globe-trotting consultant.  Something had to give.  I joined a local gym and started to learn a li…Read More

  5. Habits, Streaks, and Cold Showers

    As I started to set my 2020 goals and new habits, one of mine was to take a cold shower 3x a week. I put it on the goals board at CFP and I actually have been doing it every day not just 3x a week (so I'm killing it!). With that said, a lot of people have asked me "Mike, what's up with the cold shower?". My answer is always simple, I want to do something every day that is uncomfortable. The bigger…Read More

  6. Thriving Vs. Surviving: Battling your Mindset

    Everyone has those days where you just don’t have it. You're halfway through a workout and you feel sluggish, overly fatigued, weak and you want to just quit. When we feel this way, we tend to forget the reasons why. Maybe you stayed up late to watch the playoff game the night before, you had a long stressful week, your routine was thrown off by life’s unpredictable nature or maybe you’re ju…Read More

  8. 5 ways joining CrossFit Prototype can make and save you money

    When it comes to joining a gym, most people look at their gym membership as an expense rather than an investment in their health. In one of our testimonial videos, Syam shares how coming to CFP is like his "401k for his life", you can see that video here. We often overlook that being healthy and fit can not only save you money, but it can help make you money as well. Mental Acuity   Multiple stud…Read More

  9. Progress, not Perfection

    Progress, not perfection...   The photo on top was taken around April/May of 2012 prior to the start of our buildout. The photo below was taken around July/August 2012 as we built out what is now CFP. As you can see, a lot has changed. Some of you reading this were here even BEFORE we painted the walls (Shout out to Jay Chung and Nicole Moore). Some of you reading this remember our pull up bars o…Read More

  10. Are you struggling to make it into the gym?

    If you've been finding it challenging to work out, you're not alone. Hey CFP! Coach Mike here and I want to talk a little bit about working out : ) Let's face it, working out can be hard. The biggest challenge, however, tends to be our ability to walk through the doors of the gym, not the actual physical activity. Why is that? It comes down to several factors but at the end of the day, it's how we…Read More
