I’m hijacking the blog while Andy’s on vacation … DON’T TELL HIM. I’m hacking in to tell you about our burgeoning Women’s Program at CFLA. That’s right, a Women’s Program – a space for our female athletes to express their full potential. On Tuesday and Thursdays at 9am during the all-women classes, we’ve created an environment where we’re able to loosen our grip on past fears: the fear of heavy lifting, the fear of strength, the fear of meatheads in the free-weight room, and most importantly, we are shedding the fear of our own power and potential.
The women who are coming regularly to these classes are doing world-changing things. They are changing their own world and how they view themselves in it. We have stay-at-home moms, we have doctors, lawyers, teachers, and professional women of all kinds. We have straight-out beginners who haven’t moved their bodies in almost a decade. We have veteran CrossFitters who simply enjoy the camaraderie and bond we’ve created in class. I am there to just remind all of them that women have been strong since forever.
Starting September 4th, we are adding a Wednesday class at 9am to our Women’s Program at CFLA.
Can’t wait to see you there,
Danette Diz Rivera
