New Program at BCF: Women's Strength

We are proud to be offering the first-ever Women’s Strength program at BCF with Coach Jenn! Look for a signup sheet at the box later today!

"Women's Strength is about women empowering women. In an intimate setting athletes are coached to tap into that place from within where the pure, raw strength comes from.

An emphasis is placed on mental preparedness and eliminating distractions. No phones, kiddos or significant others - we're taking pen to paper here in our weight calculations and, giving ourselves an undistracted hour to better our minds, bodies and souls. Because that is what weightlifting can do for a woman -- it's more than just lifting weights. When we go internally to harness the physical strength, we are often surprised at the mental and emotional gains as well." - Coach Jenn

April Athlete of the Month-Hillary Demanett




There was absolutely NO QUESTION who was April's Athlete of the Month! Hillary is killing the CrossFit game! If you see her on Wodify, you notice shes a beast on the rower and bike, has cardio for days, and everyday is getting stronger in all her lifts. This past month, she achieved her 1st ever strict pull-up, followed by another 4! Completed the Crossfit Level 1 certification course, and had taken on the Kids Camps! I am constantly in awe of all she can do and excited to see where the next few years take her! Hillary, you are so deserving of this in every way! Welcome to the BCF team!







Tell us a little about yourself and family - Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.

I grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon. Ive been married for 14 years and have 3 kids. 1 boy and 2 girls. Im a stay at home mom and Crossfit is my hobby 😄 I used to run marathons but quit when I discovered how much I love the weights and the community.




How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?

I heard about BCF when I googled “Crossfit gyms near me” and a groupon add popped up. I thought I’d try it out for a month. But then never left.





What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?


My professional goal is to be the best kids coach I can be!! I hope they like me! As an athlete, I want to be Alise :) I want to get stronger, lift heavier, and enjoy the process along the way. 




What is your favorite movement? Non-favorite movement?

I love wall balls and burpees! (Don’t hate me!) I'm also starting to love snatches! Oh and squat cleans. I don’t really care for deadlifts. They’re kind of boring. Guess I should work on that.




What is your proudest CF moment?

My proudest moment was FINALLY getting a pull-up. That’s something I’ve wanted to do my whole life.


What is one thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?

People might be surprised to know I was a caddy at Brandon Dunes gold resort. I once caddied for Michael Jordan.


What is your biggest motivation in life?

My biggest motivations in life are definitely my kids.


Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?

Oh gosh what hasn’t Crossfit done for me. It has completely changed my way of thinking when it comes to body image. It’s made me more confident in who i am and how I’m built. I’m seeing it in my girls and how they view themselves as well. They talk about how they want to be strong and healthy as they grow. It has also helped my son with his health issues and has put off any treatments or surgeries he may need, for now. It’s definitely the best decision we could have made for our family’s health and happiness.


Goal Setting with Louisa Partain


Now that the CrossFit Open is over you may have an idea of what you want to get better at - some goals for the rest of 2018, but do you have a plan to help yourself get there? If not, don’t stress!

BCF and our team is here to help, beginning with our Goal Setting seminars

We promise, you won’t leave without gaining some insight and valuable knowledge on how to help make your goal(s) a reality in more areas than just the gym!

*No 6:30pm CrossFit classes on these dates.

After that be on the lookout for BCF’s first ever program calendar! Soon we will release a detailed calendar and breakdown of all the programs BCF will be offering in 2018/2019, so you can have all the tools needed to crush those goals. These programs will include: Gymnastics, Strength (revamped), first-ever Women’s Strength, Olympic Weightlifting, Aerobic Capacity, Competitive programming, Kid's Summer Camp, Athlete's Camp, and last but not least our ever-evolving Nutrition program.

March 2018 Recap

March was excellent month at BCF for so many reasons! First and foremost,

New Athletes


BCF had the pleasure of welcoming six new athletes to our amazing community. Welcome Mikayla, Josh, Denise, Aleah & Brett, and Natalia! 

Conclusion of the 2018 CrossFit Games Open


Five workouts in five weeks, and every year gets better and better! From the PRs to the blood, sweat and tears that were shed, we're so proud of the effort put in by our athletes and coaches this year. Thanks to all our athletes who attended Friday Night Lights to judge and/or cheer on our evening athletes, and to those who made it out to our celebratory events after week one, three and five. :)

BCF's First DōTERRA Class


DōTERRA's Deep Blue product was covered, as well as general information and education. If you missed it have no fear, BCF will be hosting a DōTERRA class the first Saturday of every month at 8am. Open to all and feel free to bring a friend! April's topic is allergies, and how essential oils can lessen and sometimes eliminate your allergy symptoms.

BCF Health


Be sure to join BCF's new public group on FaceBook called 'BCF Health' where we share information on health, wellness, products we use, recipes we love, etc.!

Housekeeping


As we strive to keep the facility organized and incident-free, please ensure no more than four barbell plates are on each bar at each plate station. Four for the 10's and 15's (top row) and three for the 25's and 45's (bottom row).

Also a friendly reminder, that unless a class is running over its hour time slot, please be respectful of your fellow athletes by waiting to break your equipment down until the last athlete has finished the workout. 

New BCF Swag


We purchased some extra but very limited quantities of the latest apparel order. It will be on display and available for purchase sometime the first week of April. It is first-come first-serve, and please leave your payment on the clipboard in the office before taking the item(s) home.


First Ever BCF Athlete to Qualify for Regionals


From the Open, our very own Tyler Exline has qualified for Boys 14-15 CrossFit Online Qualifier. For those of you who don't know this is the Teen's CrossFit Regionals. Tyler will be competing in 4 workouts over April 18th - 23rd against the top 200 14-15 Teen Boys in the world. It is such an honor to be among these athletes competing, and we will be cheering for him in our home town box! Although, we know he has a monumental task ahead of him to secure one of only 20 spots available for the Games, we are sure going to have fun cheering him on. We will keep you updated on when he will be competing, and you can also follow him on the Leaderboard. 


March Athlete of the Month - Ally Turner


If you have seen Ally workout and move at the gym you are just in awe! She moves with such grace and wants to always get better! She is inspiring in so many ways! As our gymnastics coach, she is always finding new ways to teach the athletes and finds a way for them to understand and improve their technique, not just get the movement.

She isn't just a coach, but she's ALSO an athlete and that is why she is our athlete of the month for March! On top of our regular asked questions, I asked her some about coaching!
Image may contain: Ally Turner, indoor

How long have you been coaching?

"This Summer will be 5 years!!"

What made you want to become a coach?


"I’ve always wanted to be a trainer or be involved with athletes somehow, but I didn’t know in what way. I went to school to be an Athletic Trainer, but decided it wasn’t for me. Then I found CrossFit… :)"

What drives you to be a better coach?


"Oh man… What drives me to be a better coach is the people that I’m coaching. I want to be better and do better for them. I know that how I coach directly impacts my athletes, and I don’t take that lightly. I want to be the best coach I can so that my athletes can be the best athletes they can be. And of course, Trevor! I want to show him that he picked the right person for the job. So I’m always trying to learn more or find more ways to coach better for him."

What is the most important thing you have learned from an athlete/or about yourself since coaching?


"I have so many answers for this one, but I think the most important thing I’ve learned in the last 5 years is how to be confident in myself as an athlete and as a coach!"


Tell us a little about yourself and family - Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.


I’ve been in Banks my whole life, and currently live in my childhood home with my husband, Nick and my 2 year old son, Jackson! My interests include CrossFit (duh), hanging out with my family, and…. Well, that’s about it. I’m a mom. So I don’t do much else HAHA

Image may contain: 3 people, including Ally Turner, people smiling, people sitting

How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?


Nick and I joined in 2012 when BCF wasn’t even affiliated yet. We were working out in the High School gym one day when Trevor approached us and asked if we wanted to hop in on a workout. We looked over and saw a handful of middle aged women huffing and puffing and we thought “this will be a piece of cake!” Well, we got our asses handed to us! The word MODIFY didn’t exist in Trevor’s dictionary, so we were fed to the wolves every day we went in. But we kept coming back, and the rest is history!

What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?


My goal is to be a better athlete than I was before I had Jackson. I want to be strong, move well and efficiently, and to be a good example for all BCF athletes. I don’t have any specific lifting or gymnastics goals at the moment..
Image may contain: 1 person

What is your favorite movement? Non-favorite movement?

Favorite gymnastics movement is definitely pull-ups! Strict, kipping, butterfly! I need to improve my C2B butterflies, but they’re getting there! Non-favorite would be wallballs and thrusters! My short legs make it difficult to move the wallballs and thrusters!
Image may contain: 3 people, including Ally Turner

What is your proudest CF moment?


Hmm…. getting back to lifting weight again after having Jackson! I was out for a good year after having him due to a back injury.  

What is 1 thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?


That my actual name is Allison. Ally was a name that has stuck with me since the 5th grade. (This isn’t very interesting, but it’s the only thing I could think of lol)


What is your biggest motivation in life?


My motivation is knowing that I am being watched by my son. I want to be a good example in every aspect of life for him.

Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?


It has literally changed our lives completely! If we wouldn’t have started CrossFit when we were invited, I wouldn’t now be in the coaching position I’m in, I wouldn’t have all the friends I do now, and I think I would be a very unhappy person. CrossFit has been one of the best things that has happened to us!

6am Cancelled - Thursday 2/23

6 am class cancelled! If anything changes we will let you know but at this point all other classes will run as scheduled.

If school is closed we cancel the 6am class and then reevaluate for the rest of the day. Today we had class because the school canceled due to weather coming in later in the day! But tomorrow might be a different story! When in doubt please check BCF CrossFit’s website, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest updates!
