Top reasons to try CrossFit in 2017

  1. COMMUNITY: You will meet like-minded people who will support you, challenge you and best of all, become friends with in and out of the gym.
  2. RESULTS: Crossfit provides measurable results. 151 utilizes a digital whiteboard system allowing members to track their performance, see their strength improve, and overall fitness level increase.
  3. REALIZE INNER STRENGTH: Most members realize how strong they truly are by doing Crossfit. You’ll begin to do things you’ve never thought possible and better yet, begin setting goals that you wouldn’t have imagined prior to joining.
  4. LIFESTYLE CHANGES: Crossfit naturally connects athletes to realize how their habits outside of the gym connect to how well they do inside the gym. Often times this leads to better decision making in all aspects of life.
  5. CHEAPER THAN THERAPY & PRESCRIPTIONS: There’s nothing like a good sweat to alleviate stress, anxiety or quickly put a bad day behind you. Even better is when members who were once on prescription medication to control perhaps high blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. to no longer need the medication because of their decision to make Crossfit a part of their routine.
  6. ENERGY: A good dose of endorphins is good in any form but adding a new sense of self by realizing your new strengths is definitely a great energy boost.
  7.  PASSIONATE COACHES: At 151 our coaches want you to reach your goals so whether it’s to gain strength, lose weight, gain mobility or all of the above our goal is to support yours.

CrossFit Kids is Back

There are three main areas kids gain from CrossFit:

  1. Physical Benefits – CrossFit is great for kids because of the wide variety of disciplines it involves, from weightlifting to calisthenics to gymnastics. The more kids can be exposed to a variety of disciplines when they are young, the more connections and increased capacities they develop and retain for the rest of their lives.
  2. Emotional Benefits – Kids work on sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, listening skills, self-discipline and manners. These are all skills, though not physical, that will help kids become successful later in life.
  3. Fitness as a Lifestyle –. It is important to make sure kids find fitness fun – if children grow up associating working out with being something enjoyable and clearly seeing the benefits to their bodies and health, then they are more likely to keep fitness as a priority throughout their lives.

Contact us for details and to see if is a spot is open for your kid today!

Save your spot today!

From Jared’s site:

What will this seminar teach you?

“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”

This quote is the entire reason I created ESS. I want YOU to be equipped with the knowledge to be able to self diagnose your problems in the future! I want you to have a lifelong journey with your lifting. No, you won’t be a “know it all” in weightlifting after one day of an ESS. In fact, I still learn new things every day. However, you will have a much better understanding of the lifts and WHY I recommend lifting that way!

  • Proper setup position
  • Dynamics of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd pulls
  • How to have SPEED under the bar
  • How to find your optimal receiving position
  • How to improve flexibility in your bottom position
  • Jerk technique (split and power)
  • Optimal Back Squat technique
  • How to keep your elbows higher on the clean
  • How to program the lifts into your training
  • How it will make YOU a better crossfitter
  • Great cues to remember
