Crossover Symmetry

Posted by Melody

Here's everything you need to know about how to use our Crossover Symmetry station! If you have shoulder impingement or poor overhead positioning, adding this to your pre-warmup before class begins will be hugely beneficial. Post any questions you have to comments!

Welcome Paradigm Littles!

Posted by Melody

We are so excited for all of the new Paradigm babies this Fall!

The baby wave started off with another adorable little boy for the Afentoulis family - Nicholas Thomas. Congrats to Missy, Evan and big brother Michael!

We are so excited for Alissa and Greg Colaizzi who have welcomed their first baby - a boy, Hudson Lee! (...seriously the cutest miniature Greg we could imagine...)

And most recently, the Calupad family has added a beautiful baby number 4 to the clan. Welcome Brynn! Congrats Carlo and Ivy - we are sure she will be one strong ninja in no time at all.

Come Celebrate 3 Years With Us!

Posted by Melody

We are getting very excited about this weekend's festivities! It has been an awesome three years and we are looking forward to kicking back and celebrating with all of you. Don't worry, there won't be any "met-cons" involved...(unless Hoover Ball and Jump House count). This day is all about relaxing and enjoying time together!

Here's the details:
-Ramac Park (off Cottle) 11am-4ish pm
-Saturday, October 4th
-BBQ/potluck lunch
-Hoover Ball tournament
-Jump house for the kids...and adults, don't worry
-Sumo Wrestling
-Raffle giveaway at 1pm

For the day....everyone is welcome! Bring out the family/significant other/kids/roomate etc.

For the Potluck...please bring something to share with the crowd and meat to toss on the grill for you and your family if you like. There's a signup at Paradigm in the office for what you're bringing- if you can get your dish on there it would help avoid 15 potato salads etc. Healthy food is always appreciated and devoured but this is a celebration too - please don't feel like you're restricted to chicken and broccoli!

For the Raffle...we are raising money towards an AED machine for Paradigm - not the most exciting piece of equipment, but pricey and worth having in the rare event that it is actually needed. To jumpstart this project, we are giving away a bunch of stuff this weekend. Raffle tickets are $1 each or 12 for $10. You can purchase them from any coach at Paradigm. You don't HAVE to be present to win at 1pm, but we sure hope you are! Non-members can join in the raffle too.

Prizes to win include:
-1 month unlimited Paradigm membership
-Reebok Nanos
-Foundations to give to a friend or family member (4 private sessions with a coach learning the basics of CF prior to beginning classes)
-Foot Massages
-1 Hr Sport's Massage
-20 minute "chair" massages
-Paradigm gym bag packed with Pro-Shop Goodies

Please remember that there are no regular classes at Paradigm this coming Saturday in lieu of the party. Take the day off to rest and celebrate with us!

“Just Squat” Part II

We are 5 days into our Squat Challenge - are you on pace? Check out this video to get better positioning and benefits out of those 5 daily minutes.

Finishing The Second Pull

Posted by Melody

If you were in my OLY classes yesterday, this was the common focus of the hour; pulling the shoulders back behind the bar in the triple extension instead of cutting the pull short and letting the bar travel forward. Like Coach Burgener states in this video, you can get away with this fault at light weight, but it simply won't fly with the heavy. Check out this video and don't forget to pull back with those shoulders as you open the hips!
Moving forward, Wednesdays at Paradigm is OLY day. Classes will be barbell focused as we work on cleans and snatches, and will also include a met-con in the programming. All levels are welcome.
