New Member / Safety in Movement Seminar w/ Stan Gorman

This is a 2 part seminar, though everyone is welcome to come to both.

First, from 9am-10am: New Member Seminar. 

This is open to anyone, including friends and family that may have questions, or be interested in giving CrossFit a try. 

I have loved seeing so many new faces in the gym over the last 4-6 weeks.

I've always prided myself on our coaching here at CFC. Our coaches know each athlete by name. We know your strengths, weaknesses, and goals. 

And that allows us to help you so much more. And our goal is to help you reach yours.

With so many new faces, I'd like to offer a FREE New Member Seminar, where I can talk to you a bit about our gym, our coaching goals, and how to help you get the most out of your time here.

Questions are encouraged throughout the seminar, and we will have designated Q+A time from 9:45-10am. 

Part 2: Safety in Movement Seminar with Dr. Stan Gorman.

This hour is all about giving you the tools to stay safe, not only in the gym but in your day to day life. 

Stan has been a family friend for over 10 years, is a great guy, and a nerd when it comes to pre-hab, re-hab, and keeping people in great condition.

For the past 20 years he has owned and operated a multidisciplinary rehabilitation company that includes physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture and medical services. 

He has 3 clinic locations that include Gateway (SE Portland), Clackamas and Bridgeport (Tualatin). 

He will be bringing one of his employees, Kyle Zabst, DC, ATC, who is a certified athletic trainer in addition to a chiropractic physician.

Some of the topics covered:

- Differences between "good" pain/soreness and "bad" pain/soreness.

- How to identify pain and injury

- What to do if you have the bad kind of soreness. 

-How to prevent the bad kind of pain/soreness and injury. 

-How prevention of injury is much better than crisis management of injury. 

-How technique of exercise is the critical factor

Please come with all of your questions, and take advantage of having such a great resource to learn from.

This is going to be a great day, completely stocked with valuable information.
