Get ready! The 2017 Reebok/CrossFit Open is upon us and we will be holding official workouts at Tacoma Strength.
This year will be a little different than past years in that we will hold official scoring rounds of the Open on Friday evenings. On those days we will hold our regular 330 and 430pm classes. Then at 530pm we will begin running Open heats.
Open WOD 17.1 will be released on Thursday, February 23 and we will start the following day on Friday, February 24.
To compete in the Open you will need to register online at the CrossFit main site. Click here to do so.
NOTE: Be sure to use our registered affiliate name “CrossFit Tacoma” when you sign-up.
Not interested in competing? No problem. Be sure to stop by the gym though to cheer everyone on. It's open to everyone and is an exciting time to watch, experience and cheer your fellow gym-mates on.
As we move forth into a brand new year at Tacoma Strength, complete with new fitness goals for the year, we are also moving forth with a brand new client management software system complete with new functionality for our gym members.
For many years we have been using a software program called Front Desk HQ. It has been a great program overall but there have always been a few holes in it. One of our goals always was to have a system where gym members could easily manage their own profile, checking balances, easily updating addresses and payment cards, and even buying retail items online whenever they wished to. While Front Desk limited many of these abilities, our new program, PUSH PRESS does not. It operates like many websites you currently order from and use in your everyday life.
In late November we began a trial roll out of the new PUSH PRESS software program - updating a few gym members at a time over to the new system. This allowed us to work out the kinks on a small scale that always come with these types of software changes. But with the new year, we are ready to roll it out to everyone.
In the next few weeks, you will receive several emails from us as we move your account over to the new PUSH PRESS system. Among them will be
Also, soon, a new check-in system will be available at the Front Desk. Instead of checking into our Front Desk HQ system when you arrive, you will be asked to check into the PushPress app on the iPads.
We are excited for this change as switching platforms from Front Desk to PushPress will free up our time to focus more on being better coaches and give us more time to work on the business which in turn benefits you.
Swim WODS resume Monday, January 2 at the Stadium High School Pool. The swim workouts will be held from 5-6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays through June, with outdoor lake swimming at American & Black Lake beginning in June as well.
