Stay in the loop on all thing CrossFit Central events calendar. Below you will find a list of fitness related (and sometime non-related) activities for you to enjoy in Austin, TX. Take a look!
April – May 2014
This try out is a pre-req for all athletes interested in joining the Advanced Athlete program. Coaches will observe skills based on objective and subjective metrics. Below are the workouts that all interested athletes will take on during the May 18th try outs. From each workout you will be given a score (Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3). However, these scores are NOT the only factors taken into account. We will also be evaluating your attitude, dedication, knowledge and proficiency of movement and EFFORT.
Taking ALL factors into account the athlete will then receive a recommendation for training options -> indoor CrossFit with training supplementation, an invitation to the Advanced CrossFit program or an invitation to GGRX training.

Fight for Air Climbs are the American Lung Association’s most unique fundraisers. Climbs take place in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums or arenas and involve walking, running or racing up hundreds of steps. Sometimes called a “vertical road race”, teams and individual participants can use the event as a fitness target, as a race, or as a great way to be active and meet new friends.
We know a lot about lung disease, but there is so much we don’t know. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide lifesaving education, research and advocacy so we can beat lung disease and soon find a cure.
Why We Climb:
WE CLIMB FOR THOSE WHO ARE ‘FIGHTING FOR AIR’
WE CLIMB FOR OUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES WHO SUFFER FROM LUNG CANCER, THE LEADING CANCER KILLER.

Spend time with coaches Michael Winchester and Zachary Thiel mastering Olympic Lifts. The Barbell Seminar is designed for those looking to learn and perfect their Olympic Weightlifting for improving performance in CrossFit WODs. All aspects of the snatch and clean & jerk will be covered. The goal is for those who attend to leave with the knowledge and skills to practice their lifting with more proficiency and add pounds onto their lifts. We are looking to make STRONG, POWERFUL athletes in the Sport of CrossFit.
If you are a lifter who needs some more time on the bar, a beginner in need of direction or a CrossFitter that is looking to lift heavier and more efficiently, this is for you. If you are competing in CrossFit at any level – local, the Open, Regionals or the CrossFit Games, then this is a no-brainer.
@ CrossFit Central Downtown
Saturday, April 26th | 10:00am – 2:00pm
$150 per person
Open to 30 Athletes
Intent for Each Participant
#1 To become more proficient at the lifts: to know and understand the basics and practice the fundamentals. Without the fundamentals, you can only progress so far.
Foot and hand placement. Setup, first pull, second pull, third pull: Where should the bar be? Where should my body be? HOW should my body be? Hip extension and contact with the bar — the most debated concepts in Weightlifting. We will break them down and explain to you why and how. Overhead position in both the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. You can get it overhead, but can you hold it?
#2 To understand movement with the barbell. Lifting is a dance. A beautiful dance. If you are unaware of where your body should be in space or where the barbell should be in relation to your body, chances are you’re leaving some serious pounds on the floor.
#3 To PR. Our goal is for everyone who attends this workshop to PR after having practiced with us.
As you know, Weightlifting and the Sport of CrossFit are now and forever entwined. As our good friend Spencer Arnold puts it: “You can be a good lifter and not be a good CrossFitter, but you cannot be a good CrossFitter if you are not a good lifter.”
The CrossFit Central program runs on 4 week cycles and this month we have an additional week in the calendar (April 28th – May 2nd). Typically we close the gym during this time but this year we are opening up the 5th week to the community!
We will run several CrossFit classes throughout the day, classes will be donation-based classes in support of The Flatwater Foundation.
This week – The Week of Giving – will be open to everyone and scaled to ALL levels!
