The climbing wall is coming along nicely. As you can see from the picture below, Monique is hard at work setting fun and challenging new routes. In the next week or so, we’ll have a short class on some of the finer points of rock climbing and the auto-belay system. We’ll keep you posted as to the exact date!
The 100 day Burpee Challenge began on Monday.
I know that the 9:30 and noon CrossFit classes are in because they all had to do 10 burpees to warm-up! Here’s the deal: you can partition your burpees throughout the day. You don’t have to do them all at once. Also, ANY burpees during a WOD count!! Finally, if you miss a day, you can make it up the next day, so don’t sweat it if you skip a day (I wouldn’t recommend this after day 80 or so!)
Speaking of Challeneges. Our Winter Lean-out is in full swing. If you want to be part of the Challenge (it’s optional) you need to get our ‘before’ pictures taken by 1/10/2012. You can have someone at the gym take your pic or do it yourself at home. Just make sure the pics are date-stamped.
Every minute, on the minute do:
The noon class getting through Monday’s lifting WOD. Melina looking good on a Dead-lift, while Russ gets another hang power snatch done!
Brandon using the reverse grip and a perfect set-up for his Dead-lift
A shot of the Intermediate Class gettin’ done! Rowing, burpees and box-jumps. Life is sweet!
Classes are M/W/F@ 4:45 for Elementary and 6pm for teens. Get your kids into CrossFit at an early and set them on the road to a lifetime of health and fitness Remember, our members get a special rate!
Check out results from Monday’s WOD below. As usual, Dusty killed!
100 Day Burpee Challenge begins on Monday!
It’s easy (at least in the beginning). Do 1 burpee on day one, 2 burpess on day 2, etc. until you get to 100 burpees on day 100! Who’s up for it? Last time only 3 of us made it all the way. Will the number be greater this time???
