NEWS AND UPDATES
WE RUN ON A PUBLIC STREET
This is Joel. Joel enjoys long weighted runs on the side of the road. Be like Joel.
Here at Rebels we have a decent run set up. We can utilize our back door to run to our straight, flat road and go down and come back without any hills, obstacles or obstructions.
Here are some situations our coaches have experienced while visiting other boxes on vacation:
-Have had to run down/up stairs leaving and entering the building
-Have massive hills as part of their 400m (talk about slowing your times)
-Crossing train tracks at a busy intersection
-Big rocks and gravel to be avoided
-Running through bushes to get to the trail that is the actual run path.
All these things can make your run much more challenging and a lot scarier. We’re not running on a residential road, so there are no dogs chasing us. But this is a public road so we have people flying to and from work at all hours of the day. All we have to do here at Rebels is KEEP OUR HEADS UP and STAY OUT OF THE STREET! …And wear the occasional reflector when it’s dark out.
We all know how tired we can get while running, especially a few rounds into a workout. Being on a busy road like we are we ask that you keep your head up and be vigilant while you run. It is the cars job to avoid humans and it is the humans job to make themselves easily avoidable. =-)
If you were driving to work at 7 in the morning and it was still dark out and you are half awake would you be 100% ready to avoid someone running in the road? This is how we have to think. It is a two-lane road, metaphorically and literally. So let’s hug the side of the road as closely as possible.
HOW TO USE THE NEW SCHEDULE
A PUSH PRESS TUTORIAL…IN PICTURES
No, not that Push Press, but close!
Thanks to our new leader, Derek, we have transitioned from the old-school schedule book to Push Press. Push Press is a gym-management software package that includes scheduling. So….it’s time to get on board!
This is your app. It’s called the Push Press Members App. Add it from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (Apple). If you’re still on a flip phone or a Blackberry…we need to talk! 😂😂😂
You’ll set up your app using the log in you made in Push Press when you got the email from us to sign the waivers.
When you register, it’ll look like this, but it’ll say “Hi [your name]”.
The two things you’re going to want to do in your app are:
Check-in for class
We start this process by clicking the hamburger menu (three lines on top of each other) in the upper left-hand corner. This is shown in the image above at the red arrow.
It will reveal a left sidebar menu. You are looking for the CLASSES OPTION.
Once you click “CLASSES”, you’ll be taken to a calendar menu with dates across the top and classes listed in chronological order top to bottom. Also note that you are in the “Schedule” tab of the two available options: SCHEDULE, and RESERVED.
You will select the date at the top, and then the class time you want. Touch anywhere in the row of the class you wish to attend and it will take you to a confirmation screen.
Select ACTIVE here, and you’re all set.
NOW…one more step. When you arrive for class, either in the parking lot or your car, we’ll ask that you pull up that app again, follow the same steps, but this time on the, you’ll go to the “RESERVED” TAB (A) and then touch the green button RESERVED (B).
Click CHECK IN and you’re all set!
You have officially scheduled a class….without a pen….from your living room or car!
We can’t thank you enough for working through this change with us. It was necessary to keep our overhead down and our box “rolling with the times”. If you have any feedback or ever want to bend Derek’s ear, his email address is: Derek@crossfitrebels.com.
