About CrossFit Alaska

CrossFit Alaska (CFAK) was founded in 2008. It was one of the first 300 CrossFit gyms to open up around the world. A lot of hard work and sweat from many individuals have built it up to what it is today. As of the summer of 2017 the keys were passed on to Kevin and I. Although new to the business world, we still hold the same values that have built our love for our community members and our passion for CrossFit; hard work, determination, and a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Here at CFAK we provide a strength and conditioning program that consists of combinations of weightlifting, ca

    1) Coach Led Mobility
    15 min

    2) “Goat Day”

    On the Minute x 20
    Odd Minutes: Movement 1
    Even Minutes: Movement 2


    “Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double-Unders, Pull-ups, Overhead Squats, Handstand Push-ups. These are the best days to turn perceived weaknesses into strengths. No better way to do that than today. We don’t improve our technique with a high heart rate – that’s what we refer to as “training”. Today is geared towards “practice,” dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double-unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump. When we couple “training” with “practice” throughout the week in the right doses, we set ourselves on the fast track to results. Choose two “Goats” to work on, and we’ll alternate between them on each minute. Choose an appropriate rep scheme for each movement that keeps things in the practice intensity range.


    For the next five Thursdays during the Open, we will run these Goat Days. Since we do not know what movements will come out for Friday’s workout, this is an opportunity for athletes to choose what they would like to do as opposed to programming movements that may or may not show up tomorrow. Sticking to the same movements over the five weeks that have the biggest potential of moving the needle for athletes is better than picking different movements from week to week.


    With these being movements that you are not as proficient at, there is the possibility for some to feel dejected when they leave. Addressing this from the beginning eases many of those feelings. If athletes remain diligent and consistent across these five weeks with their practice, you will leave better than you started.
