Boulder CrossFit: January 2022 Newsletter

Hi Everyone, 

We made it! Say goodbye to 2021 and let’s welcome 2022 with open arms. We are super happy with how far our gym grew last year but even more excited to see what this year has in store for us all. Here’s to a new year of PR’s making new friends, and growing inside and out of the gym. If you need a little extra motivation top to kickstart your journey back into the gym, be sure to reach out to Zach today to book a free 30 min consult. Also, check out our new Blog post entitled: “New Years Resolution 2022: Yeh or Nah?”

New Benchmark WODS: January 10th-January 14th

What better way to start back at the gym after a long holiday break than to hit some hard benchmark CrossFit workouts? All of our classes this week will be testing these new workouts. These WODS are classic workouts programmed by CrossFit HQ. We will then retest the exact same 5 WODS at the start of each new quarter. Be sure to input your score into Wodify so you can track your progress in 2022! These will be the “girl workouts” in which we will text. Fran, Grettel, Nancy, Cindy, and Kelly. 

Re-test past CrossFit Open WODS: Friday, January 28th

It’s time to start thinking about the CrossFit Open 2022. Last year was a huge success, which means this year we will be going extra big! Starting Jan. 28th we will be re-testing past CrossFit Open WODS, so you can get a taste of what the real thing will be like, which starts February 24th. Every single Friday leading up to the Open for 4 total weeks we will start re-testing. More info about the Open registration details will be sent in our Feb. newsletter. 

Quarterly Attendance Contest: January 1st-March 31st

Each new quarter of 2022, we will run the same attendance challenge/contest. For 3 months at a time, the member with the MOST attended classes that quarter will get some amazing free prizes valued at over $100. A few rules on this. Open gym does NOT count towards your total attendance. Only verified classes in Wodify will count so be sure to use the app on IOS or Android, if you aren’t always doing so. 

January 2022 Athlete of the Month: Monique

There is no one more fitting to start our first athlete of the month in 2022 than Monique. She impulsively signed up for Boulder CrossFit after seeing us on social media. It took her about two weeks to build up the courage to go to her first class but after meeting the amazing community and getting a kick-ass workout, she was hooked. She has now been a member for over a year. One of her biggest accomplishments was linking her toes to bar and her double unders. She’s also proud for entering her first CrossFit competition, “girls gone RX”. Her favorite lifts are squat, power, and hang cleans and my least favorite lift is strict press. Outside of the gym, she enjoys snowboarding, hiking, climbing, swimming, and biking, yoga, sewing, knitting, and crochet!  Monique is a certified personal trainer and will be booking 1-1 clients at BCF in 2022 so reach out to her if you need extra personal attention. 

Monday, January 3rd: BCF Vaccine Verified Facility 

Boulder CrossFit has been approved by the city and county of Boulder to be a vaccine verified facility. This means that if you are fully vaccinated and have shown proof to Zach, then you do NOT need to wear a mask inside the gym (although still encouraged). If you have not yet shown your proof of vaccination you can do so by texting your card to Zach at 415.299.0202. As always your vaccination status will not be shared with anyone. If you feel more comfortable with a mask on, you are more than welcome to continue wearing it. As an extra precaution, all the coaches will continue to wear maks while coaching any classes.  Please note that if you are not fully vaccinated we ask that you continue to wear your mask while you are inside the gym. If you have any concerns or specific questions, please reach out to Zach privately. While this is exciting news, let’s all continue doing our part and be mindful of people’s personal space especially during these Winter months. 

Other Misc. Announcements:

There will be no open gym hours for the month of January during the week (we want you all in our classes). We will, however, continue to hold open gym every Sunday at 9:30am. The weekly open gym hours will return to normal days/times come February. 

Our Yoga with Monique will also be canceled this month as she will be out on her honeymoon. We will continue with the free yoga on Saturday, Feb 5th.

Welcome the following new members to the gym: Katie, Ryan, Peter, Greta, Matt, and Christy. Happy Birthday to our Jan members: Gene, Elliott, Casey, Gloria, Max, Ian, Danielle, Hanna, Annie, and Chris B.
