CrossFit Gainesville- School Of Elite Fitness

Sweet Kicks

Save $25 on the new Nano 4.0s and Lifter 2.0s if you order by Wednesday, April 16th.

You invest a lot of time and resources in your fitness and having the proper footwear is essential to your training. So, leave the running shoes for running and find more comfort in your squat and other movements with the Reebok Nanos and Lifters.

Katie Rubin, featured in the photo below, recently switched to Reebok Nanos after years of CrossFitting in running shoes.  Here is what she had to say: " I love my Nanos and not just because they are bright green!  I really like how light they are.  Because they are not chunky, I can snap my feet into a power position and split jerk faster.  They also help keep me on my heels when squatting. It helps to be badass with them when they say FITCH along the side."

If you are in the performance class, you should also absolutely invest in a pair of Olympic lifting shoes.  If Katie meets her fitness goals this quarter, she is rewarding herself with a pair of lifting shoes!  They make a significant difference. As the sport of CrossFit develops, Reebok has been tailoring their shoe designs to meet athletes' needs.

Nano 4.0s
I recently switched to Reebok Nanos and found that they are more durable and comfortable than other minimalist shoes I've purchased. They are perfect for the variety of movements we do in class.

Lifter 2.0s
These lifters are made specifically for CrossFit. They have a more flexible toe box than traditional lifting shoes, so you can do box jumps, double-unders, and other movements as well as the Olympic lifts.

Why Now?
Getting the sizes, styles, and discount later will be very difficult. I have been constantly checking the wholesale site for lifters for months now! I don't like any of the options. If you pre-order now, you will get the styles you want at a discounted price. These items may not be in inventory long. I already know which Lifters I want!!

When will you get your shoes?
It depends. The chart in the e-mail that went out to members yesterday has the release dates (either June, July or October). You can also check out the options and order in the pro-shop.

You're A Part of an Amazing Movement!

CrossFit has grown exponentially in numbers since it came online in 2001. Once little known and considered an underground cult, has now captivated the masses. I believe the challenging workouts, close personal relationships, and educated coaching have helped so many incorporate the program into their everyday lifestyles.

But, did you know CrossFit is helping more than just your everyday athletes?

I'm proud to share this amazing story with you and show you first hand how this movement that we all love is changing the fitness world for the better. Our friends at CrossFit Long Island are leading a new program that brings Autism and CrossFit together.

To watch this video and see the impact that the coaching and class environment have on these special athletes is remarkable. It's apparent that Brian and his team are living up to their goal to offer a "fun class and everyone should walk out with a smile".
