October’s Member of the Month – Lisa Dysleski

Congrats to Lisa Dysleski on being October’s member of the month!

Here was your hint:

“­­­­­­­_________________, (Dysprosium) has a high thermal neutron absorption cross-section, meaning that it is very good at absorbing neutrons. Because of this, it is used to make the control rods that are put into nuclear reactors to absorb excess neutrons and stop fission reactions getting out of control.”

fitness community

This was the hint because one day as I was writing names on the board I put “Lisa Dys” to differentiate between the two Lisas at the gym. Lisa Dysleski let me know that “Dy” is the symbol for the chemical element Dysprosium, which we agreed would be a pretty great nickname for her, being an ex-CSU chemistry professor! She has since moved on from teaching, to be the all powerful, Associate Dean at the CSU College of Natural Sciences (Tony Franks lead advisor, I’m sure of it!).

fitness community

Lisa was reffered to the gym by a friend. She came into fundamentals not sure if it was the right environment for her or not…

fitness community

At the time, we were running Fundamentals in the evening during the week, she waded her way towards the back of the gym trying not to be noticed as a busy and very eccentric class finished up. Then, coach Mike jokingly shouts “Hey! I know you! You failed me in Chemistry!” Lisa chuckles and says, “noooooo…you failed YOURSELF!” The two chatted and joked for a minute before class and Lisa began Fundamentals, the start of her legendary Yeti Cave journey, in becoming one of the many rockstars in the gym.

fitness community

Running for the sake of running…the very nightmare that brings many into a CrossFit gym to avoid. Lisa’s goal was a bit different. We set out to make her a healthier, functional, safer, stronger, and faster runner. Why would someone want that?! Well Lisa came from an Ultra running background…she had completed not one, but FOUR 100 MILE RACES! And our goal was to fix her up and help her able to do whatever she wants, even another 100 mile race if she wanted too.

fitness community

Lisa is typically found at the 5:15am class, but is known about in all the classes at the gym. Much like Austin setting the bar for the men for the day, her scores are often used as a benchmark by the ladies in the later classes. A difficult mark to beat that’s for sure!

Lisa never came into Yeti Cave with the intention of being competitive with other people, but she does compete with herself immensely. She started faithfully inputting her workouts in Beyond the Whiteboard when she started and was HOOKED on bettering those pesky scores/grades that the workout tracking system gives out. Since she has joined the gym, Lisa has averaged 4.2 workouts per week. When she started at the gym the “BTWB overlords” gave her a 33 overall fitness level. As you can imagine for someone who completed four 100mi races, that did not sit well with her. Since then, her overall rating has DOUBLED to a 66 overall! Which is right on track with what Beyond the Whiteboard says progression typically takes. Check out: https://btwb.blog/2014/07/08/how-long-does-it-take-to-improve-in-crossfit/

fitness community

What’s also very cool is how supportive she is of everyone in the gym. There have been countless stories of people doing various races/events in town and they report how “yes it was fun, but WOW, how cool that LISA came to watch!”

fitness community

Since Lisa isn’t known to be someone seeking out crowds, I was pleasantly surprised when she joined a team of Yetis to compete at the Project Uplift competition in September. Lisa, Caty Bator, Ryan, and Austin Pace, of course had the most bad ass name of all the teams, the “Slaughterers…” And being a collective group of some of the smartest at the gym, their shirts were pretty clever. Can you read the elements on the shirts they made for the comp in this picture?

fitness community

Lisa is quite inspirational to many in the gym. Currently she’s been doing not only the class workouts but extra rowing workouts, as she plans to CRUSH the marathon row all on her own when that rolls around in the gym programming. And when I say extra workouts I mean casually going 10k..12…14…16k after a hard CrossFit workout!

fitness community

People admire not just the extra dedication, extra workouts but also her outstanding form! She loves when I ask her to demo a movement during class 😉

fitness community

I feel lucky to have Lisa at the gym. She is so smart and must internally deal with so much to put up with me as her knuckle dragging caveman coach 😉 It’s a blast to hear about her crazy running, adventures with her cool husband, and science stories. If you see her, be sure to congratulate her on being the Yeti Cave Member of the month this month!

Greg Rittner, the “Mustache Wonder,” is September’s Member of the Month

It’s a bird…It’s a plane…it’s Superman….no…it’s the 3rd best mustache in America!!!

Congrats to Greg Rittner for being September’s member of the month!

Member of the month

One day Coach Mike brings a friend (Greg) into the gym. I was a bit skeptical due to what the workout entailed that Mike and Greg were actually friends… it was a brutal hero workout name’d “Coffland,” and I figured there was no way Mike was bringing someone he liked in for such a tortourous workout!

Coffland

Click the hyper-link above to learn more about the Hero that this workout is named after:

For Time:

Hang from the pull-up bar for 6min

*Each time you drop from the bar, immediately do 800m run, 30 push-up and get back on pull-up bar

Member of the month

I asked Mike what he was thinking, or was Greg already in good shape??? I made sure Greg knew that he could slow down at any point, rest and grab water, to just have fun with a TOUGH first CrossFit workout.

Member of the month

I remember at some point I walked outside to check on everyone running, looking especially for Greg…I hadn’t seen him in awhile…

Member of the month

Standing by the tree out front, I waited to see if Greg would appear from behind one of the buildings that obscures our 800m run route. A decent amount of time elapses and I go inside thinking I missed him somehow, turns out I did miss him, he was laying on the ground in between the couches and cubbies like a wounded animal!

Member of the month

I walked over to Greg he seemed ok, but extremely fatigued. I invited him to sit or lay on the couch but he said he prefered to stay where he was…I felt bad for the guy, I’m never out to crush someone like that intentionally, especially not on their first day.

Greg did get up again and continued to battle through some portion of the workout until the time cap for the day. Impressive, clearly a tough dude.

Member of the month

After the workout I checked in with Greg again, figuring this would be the last time ever to see him, due to an awful first experience, and to my surprise he signed up that day before leaving!

Member of the month

Ever since he joined, I don’t think Greg has missed a single day unless he’s been traveling for work or vacation… His dedication to the process, patience and good humor are commendable. Not only is he humbly learning, and listening to his body, he adds tons of positive energy to each class everyday. He goes out of his way to say hi to people and is always in good spirits. His positive outlook on training and life are perfect for making exercise a sustainable healthy habit.

Member of the month

Not only is he lifting more weight, moving with higher quality, and getting faster times, he also won both Nutrition Challenge categories, “overall % fat loss” and “muscle gain!”

He talks all the time about how he is changing his eating and drinking habits and feels great about doing it. He’s not giving anything up, he lives life to the fullest but now he’s thinking about how he will feel in the gym if he eats or drinks a certiain way, then as a result he performs better in the gym, feels better all day and is more motivated to stay healthy outside the gym! A positive reinforcement circle!

Member of the month

For Greg it has also become a family affair here at the gym, his “super-wife” Stef, is his biggest supporter and is proud of his progress, I love seeing her encouraging posts on social media about the family! J She is famous at the gym for her strength and acrobatic skill from her Lyra training, and their kiddos Eleanor and Benjamin are pretty much mini Yeti Cave Mascots, with Apollo as their side-kick. They watch mom and dad closely, it will be exciting to see them pursue athletic and healthy living too!

Member of the month

Be sure to congratulate Greg when you see him on being September’s Member of the Month! Greg is a great representative of Yeti Cave’s positive culture and values. He continues to #wintheweek one week at a time, bettering his fitness and the community in the gym!

Member of the Month – Hannah Rininger!

Congrats to Hannah Rininger for being August’s Member of the Month!

Member of the Month

When Hannah started at the gym she came across as slightly shy and timid, turns out she’s anything but! It didn’t take her long after Fundamentals to start attacking workouts and new movements! Not only does she get after the workout, but her intensity and effort raise the energy of the entire class, it’s very clear that her presence gives those around her confidence to try harder too.

Member of the Month

Hannah brings a serious amount of focus to each workout. You can see it all over her face in the middle of a lift, run or gymnastics movement. It will throw me off sometimes while coaching, to the point I ask if she’s ok…lol…she is definitely ok…she just has the focused look of a professional “CrossFitter” tackling the final event of the CrossFit Games. Her passion, focus, effort, and positivity is contagious and makes it simply a blast to have her in class.

Member of the Month

She typically stays after the class too, working on extra mobility and recovery. But not just off in the corner by herself, she usually has 2-3 others roped into doing extra recovery as well, joking around, laughing and having fun, ya’ll can thank her for helping you feel better after workouts 😉

Member of the Month

It’s rare for Hannah to miss Team Workouts on Saturdays. And if you don’t know already, you know now that you want to be on her team! Hannah lays it all on the line for the team. You’ll see her leading and sychronizing everyone’s efforts to maximize the progress through the workout. She’s very motivational and encouraging to everyone regardless if they’re new or experienced gym members.

Member of the Month

Be sure to congratulate her when you see her on being August’s Member of the Month! Hannah is a great representative of Yeti Cave’s positive culture and values. She continues to #wintheweek one week at a time, bettering her fitness and the community in the gym!

Connor – July’s Member of the Month

Congrats to Conner Salem for being July’s Member of the Month!

member of the month

Hard to find any photos of this stud with a shirt on…your welcome ladies 😉

When Conner first started at the gym, he expressed that he wanted to train to become a Navy Seal. I looked him, the much scrawnier version of Connor that most gym members wouldn’t recognize now, and knew there was plenty of work to be done. At the time he couldn’t really do even a single correct pull-up, and his pushups were weak, lots of sagging in the middle and partial reps at best.

We laid out a plan.

Not only did Connor begin to do each days CrossFit workout but he did the extra work we talked about. He was running in the mornings before work, would do the CrossFit workout for the day, then do a series of pull-up and pushups, and would swim on top of that multiple times a week.

member of the month

Conner also has a big heart. He would be the first to help out other members at the gym, or offer encouragement. Anytime someone in the gym wanted to do extra pull-up/pushup work he would help them get through it, whether he had already done his extra work or not!

Now Connor can rip off a set of 25 strict pull-ups and has fantastic pushup form in the range of 75-80 reps! He’s gained around 15lbs of muscle and is signing with the Navy, ship out date TBD.

member of the month

Since we don’t know exactly when he’s getting out of here, make sure to congratulate him the next time you see him and enjoy a workout with him. I’m sure if you ask he will do an extra set of pull-ups with you before he goes 😉

I can’t wait to hear about the future training and all the awesome stuff he’s going to go do.

Connor came into the gym disciplined and mentally tough, he trained his tail off, and now I have no doubt that he’s got the physical ability to help him crush each test that he’s about to face.

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Yeti Cave Member of the Month for June 2018

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Congratulations to Tyler Johnson for being June’s Member of the Month!

“I’m athletic…I’ve played hockey…raced quads…ride bikes…I want to stay at a high level…I never used to have to train to be good, to feel good…”

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Sounds similar to how a lot of us feel or have felt…Sums up the first conversation I had with Ty. One of my favorite, first conversations with a member from the gym. It makes me smile mostly because we can compare Ty from then, when he first joined to Ty today.

CrossFit in Fort Collins

When Ty first joined, he looked a bit like a puppy dog that just did something wrong, a bit deflated, appearing sad at the fact that now needed to add a training program to his life in order to continue doing the things he wanted to do, at the same level or higher than he used to do.

CrossFit in Fort Collins

I did my best after that first conversation with Ty to reassure him that our goal and objective everyday in the gym was to enable him to perform and do the things he loved at a higer level then when he started, that each session would have purpose and translate to real life and athletics. I also tried to communicate to him that we would make training as fun as possible!

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Compare that with Ty today!

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Ty was dedicated to the process from the start. He has always been extremely coachable and patient, steadily improving performance in the gym and outside the gym. Just two weeks ago I ran into one of Ty’s friends, Eric, the owner of Drake Cyclery…Eric told me that riding with Ty this season he noticed Ty has been riding “better that usual” and “hammering hard” on the trails. That’s crazy, as Ty was already one of the fastest mountain bikers in Fort Collins according to Strava (equivalent of Beyond the Whiteboard for bikers and trail runners).

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Now Ty resembles nothing of a sad puppy…more like a king of the jungle! Walking into the gym, he’s darn near a celebrity at the gym! The young, the old, the new members, and the CrossFit-veterans are all excited if they get to be in his class! He may not be the loudest in the room but he does a great job at building relationships with each person he meets. He’s now the humble “Yeti-veteran” member that is always improving the atmosphere with his presence! He never has anything but good things to say, advice to offer, encouragement, or a smile and a laugh to share. One of those people who no matter what kind of day it’s truly a pleasure to be around.

CrossFit in Fort Collins

One of my favorite stories about Ty embodies what the CrossFit Open is all about. In 2017 Ty did his first CrossFit Open. And like everyone he was met with a series of challenges, one for him that he took a personal vendetta against was double-unders. As Ty has a fiery, competitive spirit, he was frustrated at not crushing the double-under workout…after the 2017 CrossFit Open, Ty vowed to me that he would not be held back by double-unders the next year. And from the look in his eye, you knew right away he was serious.

CrossFit in Fort Collins

Ty bought his own jump rope, did all the extra skills and drills that I teach, and practiced at least once a week, extra double unders for almost an entire year. In 2018, the CrossFit Open rolled around and Ty kept asking me, “when are we doing double unders?!?!” He was ready.

CrossFit in Fort Collins

They finally showed up, and in 2018 they were in sets of 100 at a time before you could move on to the next part of the workout! Ty got the chance to redeem himself that he wanted! Ty did 100 double unders, 20 overhead squats with 115lbs and then did 100 MORE double unders in 7:52 on CrossFit Open 18.3!

Equally cool to Ty crushing his “movement-nemesis,” was the fact the Ty watched and cheered on just about every single Saturday heat of the CrossFit Open at the gym.  He made himself available to judge and if he wasn’t judging then he was cheering people on.

Ty represents the Yeti Cave mottos “Move More, Live More,” and “Win the Week.” Congratulate him on being June’s Member of the Month next time you’re lucky enough to have him in your class!

May’s Member of the Month – Liz Hysen

Congratulations to Liz Hysen for being May’s Member of the Month!

When I think about my time getting to know Liz, she represents a story that I’ve seen over and over again since starting the gym, a story about the common struggles so many people go through when starting CrossFit.   A story of bravery.

move more live more

Liz was introduced to the gym by her friend from CSU, Lisa Dysleski. Lisa told Liz, who is more quite and reserved, “don’t worry about working out with a bunch of people, the 5:15am class is never that full…” So often, it can be daunting to be in the same workout class as people that have already been doing it longer than you have.

Liz liked that the first couple classes she attended weren’t that full, but soon, 5:15am has become one of Yeti Cave’s most popular classes! But, she realized that everyone at Yeti Cave, regardless of what class time she went to, was just like her, trying to be fit and healthy, to make everyday living and adventures better and better! I’m proud of all of the gym members for being so welcoming, regardless of ability level, everyone welcomes the beginner, the same way they would a “CrossFit-fire breather.”

move more live more

As many did at the beginning of their CrossFit experience, Liz had hesitations whenever there involved a barbell movement. She came in from a running background and wasn’t familiar with the weightlifting movements. But now, she isn’t afraid to try anything. She rarely uses the 15-lb training barbell for any lift now, and goes for the 35-lb bar, she has a healthy respect for the barbell, focuses on technique and is getting better and better form on the barbell lifts every time she is in class.

Early on as a member, Liz was dealing with a bit of a knee injury, we would modify the movements to accommodate and rehab the knee. She even took advantage of personal training with our intern Brandon to work on upper body strength for awhile. Now, she has no knee pain, rarely modifies any of the movements and went on to run the Horsetooth Half Marathon faster than she did the year before! Despite not being able to run as much! What a cool accomplishment and display of personal toughness and resolve!

I was also pleasantly surprised, when I threw out the invitation to the gym members to help promote the gym at the CSU Fast and Furiest 5k race, that Liz volunteered 🙂 She was one of the first ones there, and made sure the display looked good (no way that could be left to me…lol) and was a welcoming person for people to talk to at our booth.

move more live more

I’m incredibly proud of the progress Liz has made. She gets out of her comfort zone at the gym, is incredibly hard working, patient, dedicated, and is a wonderful part of the Yeti Cave family.

Liz represents the Yeti Cave mottos “Move More, Live More,” and “Win the Week.” Congratulate her on being May’s Member of the Month next time you’re lucky enough to have her in your class 🙂

March’s Member of the Month – Karen!

Congratulations to Karen Landsgaard for being March’s Member of the Month!

cross fit fort collins

Gotta show some love for the original Yeti Cave gym Mom 🙂 Much overdue! Karen was one of the first members to join the gym, and other than being a Detroit Lions fan, she has been a great member of the gym!

cross fit fort collins

When she first contacted me, inquiring about the gym and about CrossFit, I got a string of text messages probably 5 pages long! She explained at length how she wasn’t “super out of shape, but not in shape,” and that she was nervous about someone “like her” being able to do CrossFit. There was too much to respond to via text, lol, so I called her to go over her concerns 😉

cross fit fort collins

Karen took to CrossFit like an excited puppy dog seeing snow for the first time! She excitedly did each new workout emphasizing form, learning new skills that she never thought she’d be able to do! She was especially excited to start fitting into clothes better again and feeling more confident and able in her body. And whether it was switching from the training bar to the women’s barbell for her lifts, learning rope climbs or nailing a pull-up, Karen’s consistent hard work quickly started to show results!

crossfit fort collins

I’ll never forget after a short period of time, Karen told me that she was able to open all the jars for cooking Thanksgiving dinner unassisted (she is quite the cook, and cooks lots of amazing food!), was carrying the huge laundry baskets by herself, was buying the 50lb bags of dog food instead of two 25lb bags, and doing extremely difficult hikes with her adventurous husband, Hank. These improvements in her daily life completely overshadowed in my mind, all of the feats of fitness in the gym. It was a perfect example of fitness in the gym improving life outside the gym! She was moving more and living more 🙂

Karen is one of the best advocates for the gym. After probably day one of her being a member at the gym I gave her the title of “gym mom,” because regardless of who came in the gym she was welcomes them and encourage them, and makes everyone in the building feel like a family.  She often will go out of her way to help me at the gym when she can, even if I never asked, I am very grateful for her help and support on so many small things! Karen has also been a great example of overcoming adversity and setbacks. At some points she has been forced to listen to her body and rest more than she wants. At 50 years young, she wants to train every single day! During her time here she has learned when she can push, when to come in for a “recovery day,” and when to rest, in order to bring intensity and focus to her workouts and maximize her fitness results in the gym and in daily life! Often rest days and recovery days can be more difficult than the hardest workouts, Karen wants to GO, GO, GO!

Karen represents the Yeti Cave mottos “Win the Week,” and “Move More, Live More” well. Congratulate her on being March’s Member of the Month 🙂

February’s Member of the Month – Zach Burrows!

functional training in fort collins

Congratulations to Zach Burrows for being February’s Member of the Month!

functional training in fort collins
(Burrows and Linda T. are great friends and have epic throw downs!)

Humans have a certain affinity for bears. They are majestic and beautiful in their powerful nature. Their cubs are thought of as the most adorable creatures on earth and the center of too many viral videos to count on the inter-webs…They are also the kings of their domains, they demand respect from every other species in their environment and command with authority over their domain. Some people like Zach, also commonly called by his last name Burrows, even earn the nickname of “Bear.”

functional training in fort collins
(Burrows with his girlfriend Emmylou (sorry single ladies), and Mikey Ochs)

Burrows certainly epitomizes his nickname “Bear.” He has a prominent presence wherever he goes, exuding power. Once a workout begins his strength and grit are clearly apparent and bear-like. He has incredible strength and much like a bear, surprises you by equally impressive agility and speed!

functional training in fort collins

However unlike some massive Kodiak Grizzly bear that you keep your distance from, Burrows is one of the nicest, kindest people you’ll likely ever meet. He has a quiet demenor but is very social and sincere in his interactions with everyone. He has a great sense of humor and loves a good laugh. If he doesn’t know who you are he’s likely introduced himself, and made a point to get to know you, then cheered you on and encouraged you during a workout!

functional training in fort collins

Burrows is incredibly humble and coachable. He has made ton’s of progress as he does his absolute best to work on the form we are focusing on during any given class. He does the extra mobility drills we teach before every class he’s in, to increase his ability to perform movements more efficiently and effectively.

functional training in fort collins
(Burrows and Coach Bre are captain’s of team “Thicknastics”)

If Bear is his nickname, “Hard Work” has to be his middle name. Burrows is incredibly motivated to improve and loves to compete. He attacks the workout of the day regardless of what it is. And if work has kept him out of the gym then he likely will stay longer to make up 2-3 extra days workouts! The extended intensity he can bring to multiple sessions is simply remarkable. But he does these extra sessions very intelligently and listens to his body when he needs to rest. On many occasions rather than doing multiple workouts in a day, he will come to the gym just to mobilize, stretch, recover, socialize and encourage everyone else doing a workout.

functional training in fort collins
(Sometimes Burrows comes in a 5am to train, other times just to NO REP Coach Nate L. lol…)

Burrows represents the Yeti Cave mottos “Win the Week,” and “Move More, Live More” well. Congratulate him when you see him, on being February’s Member of the Month 🙂

January’s Members of the Month

 

Congratulations to Tony and Linda for being January’s Members of the Month!

CrossFit in Fort Collins
Tony and Linda recently moved to Colorado from Kansas, and are a wealth of knowledge, wisdom and positivity! They are always willing to help and welcome everyone. They’ve been doing CrossFit for 6-7 years prior to coming to Yeti Cave CrossFit and I am so grateful they have found a home here!

Despite so much CrossFit experience they are some of the most humble CrossFit athletes I’ve ever met. They are open to new drills and experiences that have helped them get stronger and do new things still! At Yeti Cave CrossFit we don’t put limits on anyone for what they can achieve and Tony and Linda are great examples of opening themselves up to new challenges! Since coming to the gym they have both increased strength, improved form and mobility, cleaned up double-unders and continue to challenge and push themselves!

CrossFit in Fort Collins
Despite being the gym’s “upper-classmen,” they display great courage to try new things and are very in-tune with their bodies. They energetically attack each workout and put forth their very best effort, cheering on those around them to do the same.

They both have immediately jumped in to do more than just be members. Linda frequently helps cover open gym times and Tony recently started the Yeti Cave Rowing club! They genuinely care about everyone in the gym and take action to build the community at every available opportunity.

Tony and Linda represent the Yeti Cave mottos “Win the Week,” and “Move More, Live More” well. Congratulate them on being January’s Members of the Month :)

November’s Member of the Month – Kevin Frazier

CrossFit Fort Collins

November’s Member of the Month is Kevin Frazier!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Matt Fraser, nope, it’s Kev Frazier! Congratulations to Kevin for being November’s Member of the Month!

CrossFit Fort Collins

Kevin is a competitor, pushing himself hard in every workout, but humbles himself to learn and hone his CrossFit skills. He’s a gentleman who will seek out anyone new, introduce himself, help them during a class if they look or feel lost, and cheer on everyone around him whether they are the fastest or slowest person in the class, often staying for one or two additional classes to cheer on more people!

CrossFit Fort Collins

Kevin is a classic old school tough guy. He enjoys camping, bow-hunting and is a wealth of knowledge about life and business. He does a lot of work with his company in Mexico and shares stories about Yeti Cave CrossFit’s members with the CrossFit gym owners there. Needless to say they are quite impressed with what you all achieve in the gym!

CrossFit Fort Collins

It can be hard when coming into a new gym, especially when you’ve had experience with doing exercise a particular way already to soak in new techniques and to embrace a new system. Kevin is always willing to do his best when tweaking form or strategy on a workout when asked. He is a sponge for new information, and deliberately practices the techniques given to him, and it’s paying off! His coordination, flexibility, and overall fitness has greatly improved since he’s been at the gym.

CrossFit Fort Collins

Kevin is a land developer and a wealth of business knowledge. He has been an immense help to me in terms of offering advice, brainstorming and talking to me about the business side of Yeti Cave CrossFit. His wisdom about life lessons and business are at the very least is appreciated and helps put my mind at ease a little bit, when at times it feel like my mind is doing “Fran” over and over again all day long haha!

CrossFit Fort Collins

Kevin lives out the Yeti Cave slogans “Win the Week,” and “Move More, Live More” well. Congratulate him on being November’s Member of the Month next time you see him J
