Jääkarhu

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A NEW WAY OF DOING THINGS – IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A COMMUNITY AND GYM THAT YOU CAN BE PROUD OF, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER. THOSE THAT JOIN ARE A SPECIAL BREED.

Become a Karhu Bear

Our purpose is simple: to build the best gym in the world. Knowing that a gym is only as strong as the community that supports it, we are committed to providing world-class coaching, programming and customer service. It is our goal to take people from point A to point B – from where they are to where they want to go. We offer two programs: Karhu CrossFit and Karhu Method.

Less talk, more do.

This is not just a place for elite athletes.

This is a place for people who are determined to improve their fitness and wellness. We provide levels based on your goals, interest and commitment but we strive to form one community. Learn more about our two class offerings below.

Crossfit

YOU DO NOT NEED TO “BE FIT” TO ENTER THE PROGRAM… BUT YOU WILL GET FIT WITH CONSISTENCY, HARD WORK AND SOME FUN ALONG THE WAY.

Karhu
Method

CROSSFIT JÄÄKARHU’S KARHU METHOD PROGRAM IS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE CROSSFIT THEIR SPORT.

Try a free week of training on us.

It’s called functional fitness for a reason! How has CrossFit changed your life outside the gym? #Repost @crossfit ・・・ Via @copperheadcrossfit: Sure, lifting heavy weights and throwing around medicine balls is fun, but we want your fitness to be useful OUTSIDE of the gym too. Whether it’s helping a friend move, playing with your kids, or just looking and feeling better, we want to help you get there. 🎥 @mitchmedmedia | #CrossFit

#Repost @estradaflys ・・・ Ring Muscle-up Transition Fault: ___________________________________________________ A common fault I see in the muscle-up is losing tension in the upper body during the transition. As you transition over the top you have to begin PUSHING down on the rings. If you notice the angle of my elbow is at a 90 degree, most people transition by throwing the shoulders over the rings and lose activation in their lats and end up missing or catching very low. @cfgymnastics @karhustrength @crossfit @crossfittraining #cfgcoach #cfgymnastics #cfgGEM #muscleup #crossfitjaakarhu

February Athlete of the Month: Juliegh Bookout aka @bookoutj _______________________________________________________ Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit? A: We will say four-ish years. I added Crossfit to my fitness routine in February of 2014, but I was only going once a week. When winter arrived in Michigan the following year I decided that working out outside in the snow and freezing cold was complete nonsense so I became a full time CrossFitter! Q: How were you introduced to CrossFit? A: A friend from one of the bootcamps I went to had just joined a CrossFit box and said I should try it. I was kind of nervous to tell Eric I wanted to check it out because we used to make fun of his former boss who did functional movements, aka CrossFit. Q: What are you favorite movements/workouts? A: Of course I love the three power lifts, but I also get super excited about ring dips, thrusters, and cleans. Elizabeth is my favorite workout, but Angie holds a special place in my heart because it was the wod on my first day of CrossFit. #jääkarhu #austintexas #community #athleteofthemonth #crossfit

Athletes of the Month: THE WEEMS (Greg, Kathy, Trent & Amber) •••• Q: How long have you guys been doing CrossFit? A: Trent has been doing crossfit over 3 1/2 years now. Amber and I have been doing crossfit almost 2 years. Greg has been doing crossfit 6 months or so. • Q: How did you guys get involved in CrossFit? A: Trent has been an inline speed skater for over 10 years now. He wanted to place at nationals and the only way to do that was to get bigger, stronger, and faster. I saw what crossfit was doing for his cousins/my niece's and decided to have them ask their coach for a recommendation for the Austin area. They told us that Karhu was the best! We called and set up a meeting to find out what would be the best thing for Trent to reach his goal and to place at nationals. He started crossfit right away and the following summer he placed at Nationals in Lincoln, Nebraska! Trent kept up with the workouts even after nationals and still loves going to crossfit to this day. After seeing Trent get stronger and leaner, I decided to join crossfit myself almost two years ago. When I decided to join, Amber (my 11 year old) decided that she wanted to join crossfit as well. It was really slow in the beginning, but now it is great and I look forward to getting to the gym! Amber and I challenge each other a lot and I enjoy my time with my family working out together. Greg, my husband, decided to join as well about 6 months ago so he could get in better shape and loose a few pounds along the way. It is still a little slow for him, but he is getting the hang of it and getting stronger by the weeks. One thing we have learned is that you will not be able to just come in and be at the level that everyone else is. You have to go at your pace and not worry about everyone else. Do what is best for you and your body. If you have to scale the workout then do so.....at least you are there and trying! • Q: What are your favorite movements? A: Trent likes heavy squatting & deadlifting. Kathy likes rowing, back squats and deadlifts. Amber likes back squats. Greg likes rowing. • • • Thank ALL of you for continuing to be involved in our community! We love you guys 🐻
