Team PFCF Runs Ragnar!

On November 9th and 10th, Team Progressive FORCE CrossFit, consisting of 11 athletes, ran a total distance of 1,197.6 miles straight during the Ragnar Las Vegas Race. The team completed the challenge in 29 hours, 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The night of November 9th, temperatures in the Las Vegas Valley dropped into the 30s for the first time this year. Despite the weather challenges and altitude changes, Team PFCF finished 56th out of 572 teams competing and 1st amongst all other CrossFit gyms from Las Vegas.  Great job, team!

Upcoming Featured Training:
 Small Knife Skills Seminar
Las Vegas, Nevada   
The Small Knife Skills course outlines an effective defensive structure utilizing a small knife or knife-like object. This course follows a non-attribute based learning model presenting attendees with a methodology applicable to conventional edged tools and improvised knife-like objects common in our every day environments. A solid grounding in safety and fundamentals of defensive knife application are presented. A heavy emphasis is placed upon the student’s ability to access, deploy and manipulate the knife while multitasking or under the stress of close range confrontation.
