Warm-up Coach, Week 2 – Ali Minton

Each week the warm-up area is stocked with a Roots coach who is affectionately called – The Warm-up Coach! As you all know we will be running WODs in heats through the night which means you’ll be responsible for warming yourself up but have no fear, a Warmup Coach will be near!

The WC is there to answer any questions you have regarding how to warm up (a specific warmup will be written on the whiteboard), discuss movement standards, chat about “to scale or not to scale”, how to approach the workout, give you a pep talk, and all that good stuff.  They will also gather you and the rest of your heat minutes before it is time for your heat.

Judges

We have a dynamite group of folks who have taken and passed the judges course! If you have taken the judges course but not yet signed up to judge on Friday Nights, please view this doc and sign-up for what you are able. Thank you for volunteering! We couldn’t do this without you!

And remember, each time you judge at FNL, you are entered to win a sweet new cruiser bike from our title sponsor – Jon Sisenwein, realtor at Pedal to Properties..

Background on Our Sponsors

The Colorado Dandelion
The Colorado Dandelion was founded by Jen Kievit, a New Jersey native–now Colorado transplant living a healthier life in Boulder, CO. Jen’s passion for aromatherapy and curiosity with plants as natural remedies may have actually started more than twenty years ago and has ignited a passion in her to share her healing experiences with essential oils and natural body care products to help others to heal, balance their bodies or enhance their personal wellness program.

Products
The Colorado Dandelion focuses on made to order, small batch natural body care products using ingredients from locally sourced vendors. Currently, we craft body butter, hand salves, and aromatherapy roller ball blends. Body butters are made with local organic shea butter, local beeswax pastilles and therapeutic grade essential oils. Hand salves are made with three ingredients plus essential oils—organic coconut oil, local organic shea butter, local lanolin and therapeutic grade essential oils.

Trey B. Studios
Trey Bower is Boulder’s best hairstylist with fifteen years experience in women’s, men’s and kids cuts. Trey is also a Wella Master Color Expert, specializing in highlights, balayage, keratin smoothing treatments and blowdrying. He as also attended Paul Mitchell the School-Atlanta. 

“I started my hair career when I was young—brushing my granny’s hair every Friday night before her hair appointment on Saturday morning. I loved spending that time with her and it definitely inspired my career choice. Do you know she still goes to the same lady after all these years? I love the loyalty of my granny so much and strive to have the same relationships with those I get to work with at my chair.” —Trey B
