Rest/Make up/Foundations Class (at 7:00PM only)

The Foundations Class starts tonight at 7:00PM!

For  the next three weeks, every Thursday at 7:00PM and every Sunday at Noon we will be offering a 1 hour Foundations Class for anyone that is interested.

The Foundation Class is a great way to learn more about the 9 functional movements of CrossFit from an expert CrossFit coach. The classes will go over the set-up and proper execution of the squat, front squat, overhead squat, press, push press, push jerk, deadlift, sumo deadlift high-pull, and medball clean. Taught in the same style as you would receive at a CrossFit Level 1 seminar, attendees will learn how to move better and how to recognize certain movement faults in others. This educational class is free for members and will not count as a visit for the week. There will also be a basic workout provided at the end of class to attendees.


This class will be lead by Jonny Vu, a long time  CrossFit coach in Chicago.


A Houston native, Jonny has been part of the CrossFit community since February 2009 and has been a coach since September 2009. With CrossFit a Level 1 certificate and other seminars under his belt, he’s been able to help hundreds of athletes improve their functional movement and reach their goals of a healthier lifestyle. Jonny is also involved with the CrossFit community. He served as the CrossFit Games Regional Competition Director and has organized and attended numerous philanthropic fundraisers throughout Chicagoland.  Jonny’s also been recognized as one of the top CrossFit coaches in the area and is currently serving as an intern on the CrossFit Headquarters Seminar Staff.  He’s excited to bring his passion for helping people move better to Hardware CrossFit.
