NEWS

Coach Mike Dearborn retired two weeks ago after 30 years in the fire department. In his new spare time he developed the WCCF Covid 19 Safety Procedures & Operating Plan. We have presented those to the City of Napa, and are making progress with the County. In short, we don’t yet have an opening date, but we are on it!

The gym is completely remodeled. We have filled the holes in the floor and repaired the walls. We painted, cleaned, redecorated, and this happened 90% by volunteers. Now we can’t wait to have you all over to check it out in person!

We have added Yoga to our online platform. Join Katie for an all-levels Vinyasa class focused on connecting to the breath and body through invigorating sequences that leave you calm and energized. This class is on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 noon. Yoga starts this Thursday as noon! Join HERE.

Get your strong booty now! We have added the Posterior Chain Program to SugarWOD. As of May 4th you will find it on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Do this after your Boot Camp, CrossFit Class or home workout. The three movements are always superset, which is a fancy way to tell you to alternate between them. Track your weights. Do the work. Get stronger.

Friday, March 20 Update

Hello WCCF Members,

We hope you are all breathing deeply as we approach the end of Shelter In Place: Day One.

Last night we saw 50 people come to the gym to check out equipment. Today we ran our first online classes, albeit not without technical challenges.

Our goal is for ALL our online offerings to be available to you at your convenience. AKA recorded. Today were able to offer a recorded CrossFit Class that Corey led this morning at 8AM. You will find it on SugarWOD under At-Home Workouts, and you can do it with one weight or a back pack at home. For mysterious reasons the Boot Camp class is unavailable.

But, Luddites can learn, and tomorrow we intend for the Boot Camp to be available post live class recording as well. Once we have the online platform figured out we will add additional offerings that bring us together, virtually while also enhancing our health and wellness. In the meantime, use these links for tomorrow:

Boot Camp Class – Saturday at 8AM. Join Coach Aly HERE

CrossFit Class – Saturday at 9AM. Join Coach Lyndsey HERE

These links and info can also be found on our website HERE. Our classes and knowledge base are FREE to your friends and family, so please share the links to keep everyone moving.

Stay tuned and stay strong!

-Beth and your team of coaches

We thank you for your continued support!

March 18th – 12 Noon Update

Wine Country CrossFit is still open. Many of our members are choosing to workout at home. But for those that want the structure of class please come in at the scheduled class times.

Napa County has yet to issue the Shelter In Place order. Until that time you can count on us! Please remember these rules: Wash your hands upon arrival. Wipe down ALL your gear and equipment. Wash your hands post WOD. Maintain your social distance.

Here’s a little doozy for those at home:

20 Minure EMOM
5-push ups
10-sit ups 
15-air squats 

Should you fail, the WOD then becomes an AMRAP. Good luck!

Monday March 16 – Gym Is Open

Working out is one of the best ways to stay healthy and relieve stress. Get it done at Wine Country CrossFit.

There are no reported cases of the coronavirus in Napa County. None the less, we have increased the frequency of our cleaning and hand washing.

All of our classes are running per usual. We ask that you abide by the following rules:

-wash your hands prior to class and at the close of class
-continue to wipe down your equipment
-maintain social distancing
-stay home if you have a cold or any other symptoms

Still concerned? Do a workout at home! We have a host of travel and at-home WODS on our blog here. Or try this for a little something quick and easy:

8 Rounds for Time:

10 Push-ups

10 Air Squats

10 Burpees

10 Air Squats

Whatever you do, keep moving and keep the faith!
