Why do the coaches at CFS constantly harp on all of you about your form?
Is it because we love to rip on your abilities and yell out “NO REP!” just because we can?
No, the CFS Coaching staff has been trained to spot great movement as well as poor movement. Our goal is to get you all moving as close to perfect as possible.
Moving well will not only help you move yourself and loads more efficiently, but it will also prevent injury and HELP nurse preexisting injuries back to good health again.

Your Form Sucks
By Dr. John Zimmer May 2010
Poor posture can create poor results and cause injuries.
Dr. John Zimmer explains how to improve posture for best performance and safety.
” “Why does my shoulder hurt when I do cleans?”
“Why does my back hurt when I deadlift?”
“Why do my knees hurt when I squat?”
“Why do I jerk the same as my push press?”
“Am I doing this right?”
The quick answer is always easy: “Your form sucks.”
When it comes to good form, the same fundamentals that
apply in the gym still hold once we set down the barbell
and leave the gym. CrossFit stresses midline stability—
chest up, weight back on the heels. But what happens
when we leave the gym? The first thing that happens is we
lose this great positioning.”
