Check out this fun and local competition!

Hey guys- this is Clara Clemens. I’m hosting a “FrossCit” competition in my garage gym on 8/5 and want you guys to come and compete in it!

FrossCit is a 15 minute event that you can do as an individual or a 2-man team. Basically, there is a list of about 30 exercises worth 3 points each. During the 15 minutes, you can choose to do any of the exercises you want in whatever order to earn the most points possible. You can only repeat an exercise once, and if you do, it’s only worth 1 point. There is a lot of strategy involved, so you’ll want to think about your game plan!

I’m hoping someone can dethrone last year’s champs “Team Sweeties” (Jared and Eileen).  But don’t let them intimidate you – it’s a fun, laid back event for all fitness levels- not just the extreme FrossCitters.

The best part is that it is a fundraiser for a good cause.  The entry fee is $15 and proceeds benefit a church camp that I’ve been a part of my whole life. It’ll help pay for scholarships for kids to go.

There’s a 30 person cap so sign up soon. Should be a fun day together!  See www.frosscit.blogspot.com for more info. Thanks!

MURPH and 6-week challenge!

Murph is happening Monday at 11am! Doors will close down around 12:45 so show up promptly to warm up and get going! Memorial Day is a solemn Federal holiday instituted for the remembrance of those who have died in military service fighting for the freedoms we often take for granted. Our country may not be perfect, but this takes nothing away from those lost fighting for it, fighting for us.

We are running a 6-week challenge that begins this week. If you see some new folks around, be sure to be welcoming and introduce yourselves as you all remember how it can be difficult entering into a new and possibly intimidating situation. Thanks and have a great holiday.

Self-Defense Seminar

We are extremely encouraged to offer this incredibly beneficial seminar. Most people will wait until the end to tell you the price, but because we believe this is such a necessary service to the community and incredible deal, we are offering this 5-hour seminar to the first 30 people to sign up for only $65. This will pay for itself in the first hour with increased self-confidence.

Fail to plan, plan to fail. We’ve all heard this before, but what about potentially threatening situations? Our goal is to make you more comfortable in this sort of environment. We want to help develop self-confidence enabling you to react more appropriately when facing potentially dangerous situations. You will learn effecient ways of preventing and protecting yourself from various forms of physical assault.

Even if you can’t fight off an attacker, the ability to prolong the incident greatly increases your chances of receiving help. Confidence is often more than half the battle, and with the tools you’ll recieve during this seminar, you will be much tougher. We have been programmed with a fight-or-flight response, and we’ll teach you how to harness these programmed insctincts properly. You can train your reactions. We will cover the four most common and far reaching scenarios listed at the bottom of this description.

Your instructor has a long history in the MMA world. Jacob has been fighting for over ten years under the most prestigious MMA line in the world. At Jackson’s Team 4 Corners, he was a profesional fighter with 18 fights and numerous amatuer bouts. He also taught the kickboxing program at American Top Team Indy and was the fight team captain and secondary coach while there. He also led the kids program at T4C.

Since being at Infiltrate over the past 6 months, he has developed several beginners into absolute beasts. The extrememly fast development of multiple tournament champions is attributed to his ability to relay information in a clear and concise way.

Bring a lunch, or grab something nearby as we’ll have a 30 min break between two, 2:15 hour sessions. We’ll have food recommendations for you at the seminar and some food for purchase on site as well.

SEMINAR TOPICS:

- How to prevent attacks by using situational awareness as well as making yourself a “hard target.” Preventing an attack is always the best option. You can’t prepare for everything, but understanding the basics will give you a foundation from which to work.

-How to use things like your own clothing to break free from an attacker who grabs you without warning or even turn your clothing or other common items into offensive weapons.

- How to avoid being taken to the ground by blocking and responding to strikes. Understanding stance, leverage, balance, and framing is critical to responding to the initial attack.

-Since the majority of altercations end up on the ground, we will teach you how to fight dirty, stand up under pressure, and retreat from sexual assault scenarios. You will learn how to use the basic tenants of jiu-jitsu and striking defense in order to have a plan if you do hit the ground. This is useful for escaping an attacker if he is pinning you to the ground.

2 Events Coming Up!

Griffin has been organizing a competition to raise awareness and funds for Autism treatment. We are proud to help sponsor this event; see more details at the bottom! Part of what makes us sleep good at night is that much of what we do is to benefit those around us. Take the latest #CleanCityProject for example. People’s lives are being changed AND we’re helping the community and environment around us!

GORUCK is an incredible company with incredible goals. We are more than happy to partner with them in order to help veterans and encourage ordinary people like me to get out and explore the world around us. We are an official GORUCK Firebase and so get discounts on events (see below). We have two coming up this next weekend!

The Tough, is the Original Challenge. Eileen did The Tough with me, and though she said she’d never do it again, she also said that she was glad she did it. Word to the wise. We spent (what I consider to be the 2 of the most cosiest hours of my life) with our faces in the mud during a sever thunder storm. Being subject to mother nature, and having her as your supreme boss seems to settle my soul. The Light is short not easy. I’ve done a couple of these, and have absolutely loved them. Coupon Code: INFILTRATE25 will get you, you guessed it, 25% off!

We had a crash in our neighborhood this past weekend. The 17-year-old older brother of a couple kids we meet with regularly was killed in a crash this week. Another 17-year-old girl was killed while one boy (16) was, and still is, in a coma. Michael Blackmore, the other boy involved in the crash is undergoing heart surgery and breathing treatment. Over the last few days as we’ve spent time in the hospital and spoken with the broken families surrounding this event, we must reiterate to you to make the most of the time you have.

I know for a fact that many of you have had your own experiences in life which make you cherish each moment, so do it. And know that time spent at Infiltrate is spent with people who understand and appreciate this perspective.  This brings us back to our competition coming up!

New Schedule

Our new schedule based on attendance trends will be slightly modified and expanded. The biggest difference is that we will add a 7pm class while eliminating the 7am class. We will also be having regular classes throughout Thursday where before there was not a regular CrossFit class at 6 or 7pm.

We are also altering the timing of evening classes just slightly. This will allow a 5 minute overlap between classes. This will allow you to more easily catch up with your friends between classes, and will allow for a better transition. In order to accommodate this, the times have been slightly changed: 4pm Express, then class at 4:50, 5:55, and 7pm. More and later evening options will give you added flexibility with your schedule.

FORM will be moving to Tuesday at 6pm in order to accommodate the Regular Class Thursday at 6pm. This means, Mon-Wednesday, you have an alternative to Regular class at 6pm in the form of FORM and Oly and Strength classes. We absolutely encourage the taking of these classes in order to become more well-rounded as an individual.

Obviously, changes aren’t going to be best for everyone, but it is our effort to best serve our client base. If this schedule change is an issue with your schedule, let’s talk it out and see if there’s not a solution. Ideally, we will have a 5:50/6:30 or 5:45/6:45 morning class options, but that won’t make fiscal sense until we consistently need it.

If you have any comments or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. The schedule is updated in Mindbody.

For Android

The Firefighter Throwdown is coming to Indy on the same Friday as the Tough! They need volunteers for judging and whatnot, so if you’re interested in helping out with a large, local competition check out the link here.

Last Day of the Open!

I have been so proud of so many of you, I’ll be listing memories all week, but Stephen Strong went from double under dud (sorry Stephen) to double under stud in an amazing demonstration of determination. To me, these are some of the most inspiring stories.

Parking validation has been hit or miss. Quills was having problems on Sunday as well. Parking on Senate and 9th street is always free, but you’ll have to park in the garage at your own risk. I’m working on my end to get it fixed, again.
