February 2022 Newsletter

Hi Everyone, 

Please take a few minutes to read through all of our exciting news for the month! 

CrossFit Open: Starts Friday, February 25th

Most of the things we do this month will be gearing us up for our fun, in-house, 3-week competition. If you didn’t get a chance to read all the exciting details about this event, please check out our Blogpost here. The most important thing to note is that the last day to register will be Friday, Feb 18th so we can pick our teams and team captains. Register in the gym by putting your name on the whiteboard. If you have never done the CrossFit Open or have only been doing CrossFit for a few months or weeks then be sure to not skip any Friday workouts between now and then. We will continue to re-test past Open workouts so you can get a taste of what the competition will look/feel like. We will send out one more notice a week before with everyone’s teams/team captains and more detailed info on the logistics. 

Saturday, Feb 12: Muscle Up Clinic 11:15am-1pm 

Do you know what movement is almost guaranteed to be in the CrossFit Open? That’s right, you guessed it, muscle-ups! Gymnastics guru and M.U. pro, Collin Hilden will be leading this hands-on clinic which will go over in-depth both the bar and ring muscle-ups. Whether you’re a M.U. pro and can knock out 10 plus or someone looking to get their very first M.U, this clinic is for you. Although this clinic is meant for ALL levels, it’s recommended that you have at least 5 pullups before attending. It will be strictly capped at 12 total members so the instructor can provide enough one-on-one attention. The cost is $35/person which will all go towards paying the instructor. Register HERE. 

Monday, Feb 14th: Valentines Day WOD FREE classes all-day 

CrossFit is always more fun with a friend, partner, or co-worker. Join us as we celebrate this day by doing a fun, beginner-friendly partner workout. Feel free to bring anyone you want free of charge to any of our classes. The workout is meant for all levels of fitness so this would be a great opportunity to bring someone you know into class who otherwise might be a little intimidated by CrossFit. Just be sure to let Zach know before coming in. 

February 2022: Athlete of the Month…Austin Bargmann 

Congrats, Austin! Austin started back in April of 2020 because he wanted to challenge himself. He’s a regular early morning 6amer and normally attends all of our Saturday classes as well. His favorite lifts are the snatches and clean. They’re more difficult lifts for him, but because of that, he finds them to be more rewarding. His least favorite lift is the front squat. Austin is an organic chemistry PhD student at CU Boulder studying antibiotic resistance. Outside of the gym, Austin enjoys fly-fishing and backpacking. Next time you see him in the gym, give him a big fist bump. Keep up the hard work! 

Welcome New Members to BCF:

Please welcome several new faces to the gym this month. If you don’t know them, be sure to introduce yourself in your next class. Welcome in Danielle, Zach, Chris W, Adam, Mackenzie, Jordan, and Ana. 

Happy Birthday Feb. Members:

HBD to Greta, Nick, Thatcher, Katy, Carrie, Aaron, Brad H, Brad S, Michael T, Mark, and Sanhjana. Don’t forget that Saturdays are meant for you to come in and program your favrotie workout. Be sure to reach out to Zach to coodrinate. 

Other Misc. Announcements:  

Yoga with Monique is back this Saturday, Feb 5th at 11:15 am. FREE for all BCF members. $10/drop-in fee for anyone else. Sign up in Wodiy today to reserve your spot. 

Hoodies have finally arrived. If you ordered one please mark your name down on the clipboard and only pick up what you ordered. If you did not pre-order anything please wait on grabbing a hoodie. After all pre-orders have been given, we will have leftover merch if you’d like to buy them.

Our Tuesday/Thursday 9am class will be taken off the weekly schedule for the time being. We introduced it over 3 months ago as a trial but due to lack of attendance, we couldn’t justify keeping it on there. We may add it back in this Summer but for now it will be taken off. 

We are open for all regular classes on Monday, Feb 21st Presidents Day. 

That’s it for this month. As always, thanks for your continued support of BCF.

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. 

Show your support for our gym by writing a google review HERE.  

Thank you everyone!

December 2021: Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it? Only 1 month left in 2021. It’s been an absolutely tremendous year of growth for us all! Boulder CrossFit has never been busier in terms of memberships as well as our coaching staff. To say we bounced back from COVID in 2020 is an understatement. Our gym is thriving and that’s because of each and everyone one of you. We have some exciting things planned this month to wrap up the year. Please be sure to read and let us know of any questions.  

Recap of 2021 at Boulder CrossFit: 

In 2021 one of our main goals as a gym was to give back to our community. And we did just that. As a gym/community, we raised over 5k for local non-profits. See examples of all the organizations below. Each one had a message that BCF supported and wanted to back. We couldn’t be happier with all the generous donations. In 2022, we plan to double down on the non-profit donations so stay posted for more details.

$4,252 raised for the Colorado Healing Fund 

$255 raised for The Murph Challenge

$680 raised for Colorado Youth Outdoors 

$450 raised for Steves Club 

As our membership base went up, we reinvested tons of money back into the gym to make your membership experience the best in town. We put in over 8k into the gym which included a new rig installation, new bumper plates, misc. storage racks, and a newly remodeled bathroom. Thank you to everyone who helped with this. 

New Boulder CrossFit Swag: Order by Friday, Dec 3rd 

We’re finally getting some new swag ordered. We will have fully restocked shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts in the next 2-4 weeks. If you would like a sweatshirt or hoodie, please pre-order them HERE by Friday, Dec 3rd. No need to order shirts as we will have plenty in stock.

Boulder CrossFit White Elephant Christmas Party: Saturday, Dec 18th, 7pm

Thats’ right. After a break last year due to COVID, we’re back. This event is to cap out a year of fun/fitness with friends and family. All food will be catered to and provided by the gym. So please do not feel like you need to contribute. We just ask that you bring two things. Drinks of your choice (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and a wrapped Christmas gift for the white elephant exchange. Let’s set the max limit to be $20 on a gift. Family is also welcome. Please sign up at the gym whiteboard so we know how much food to order.

Welcome, Alexis to the BCF Coaching Staff: 

Meet Alexis. She was born and raised in Longmont, Colorado. Alexis is bilingual, loves coffee, wine, dogs, and maple donuts. She grew up being naturally competitive. She was a competitive cheerleader most of her life. She found CrossFit about 4 years ago and has competed off and on for 3 years. When she started CrossFit she didn’t think it would be such a big part of her life. She joined CrossFit to stay active and ended up loving the competitive side and group fitness. She currently has her CF-L1 and is continuing her education with CrossFit and personal training. 

She works in dentistry but her passion is at Boulder CrossFit. She found our community in April of 2021! Her goal is to help others achieve their goals, and celebrate their wins! Whether you’re new to CrossFit and working on the fundamentals or experienced and need help working on skilled movements, she is ready to help you get there. Alexis will be shadowing classes over the next few weeks in the gym so please help us welcome her as a coach. 

December Athlete of the Month: 

Congrats, Sophie! While Sophie has only been with us for 2 months now, she literally has not missed a class since joining. Sophie is a regular at the 7:15am crew and initially joined BCF to meet new people as she just moved here from the Bay Area in CA. Her day job is a User Experience Researcher at YouTube. She transferred to the Boulder Google office from San Francisco to be closer to family. Her favorite lift is the back squat and her least favorite is the snatch. Outside of the gym and work she enjoys hiking, golfing, running, reading, and watching Michigan football and basketball. Next time you see her in class, give her a big congrats! 

December Holiday Schedule:

Please note our modified schedule for this month. 

Dec. 20-23rd normal classes Dec 24th, 8:45am and 10am only. Dec 27th-Dec 30th normal classes. Dec 31st, 8:45am and 10am only. Jan 1st and Jan 2nd CLOSED  

Other Quick Notes:

Yoga with Monique is this Saturday, Dec 4th 11:15am. This class is FREE for all current BCF members. $10 drop-in for others. Be sure to secure your spot today in Wodify.

Continue to show up at our new Mon/Wed and Fri 3:45pm classes as well as our Tues/Thurs classes. Back in October, we introduced these new classes on a 3-month trial period. We’ve had a great turnout for our Mon, Wed, and Fri classes so these will stay on the schedule in 2022. However, if we don’t consistently get our Tues/Thur 9am class attendance up to an average of 7, we may have to cut this from the schedule come January. So please, tell your friends and family and show up. 

We applied for the Vaccine Verified Facility and are waiting for a response from Boulder County. This process can take another 2-4 weeks so please be patient and once we hear back you all will be the first to know. 

Thank you for everyone’s continued support of Boulder CrossFit. We can’t wait to see what 2022 has in store for us!

His full coaching bio can be found HERE

November Athlete of the Month: Giovanni

Boulder CrossFit: October 2021 Newsletter

Hi All, 

Fall has arrived and we’re so excited to end the last 3 months of 2021 with a bang! Please take 5 minutes to read through our important news this month. 

Saturday, October 2nd: 11:15 am Mobility with Monique 

After successful classes this past month and spring, we’ve decided to have Monique run her yoga classes for us EVERY first Saturday of the month. And the best part? These classes are completely FREE for all BCF members. If you have any active membership with us (not punchpass) then all of these yoga classes will be included at no extra charge. If you want to bring anyone outside we ask for a drop-in fee of $10. 

Monday, October 4th: New Class Days & Times 

​​​​​​​

We had over 100 of you all vote in our survey. The results were almost split down the middle which means we are going to offer the best of both options to try and accommodate everyone’s schedule. See above for the new offerings. All other classes will remain the same/unaffected. 

The biggest note to take away here is that these classes will be up on the schedule for a 3 month trial period, (Oct, Nov, and Dec). If as a gym, we don’t consistently have on average 6 people in these new classes then they will come off the schedule starting Jan 1st. This means, show up and tell all your friends about these new class times.   

Monday, October 4th: New Wyndler cycle begins

For the next 5 weeks, expect to Back Squat on Mondays, Deadlift on Wednesdays, and Strict Press on Fridays. We will of course continue our regular WOD’s after the strength. We will test our new PR’s the week of Nov 1st. 

Tuesday, October 26th: Last classes for Coach Kyrsten ​​​​​​​

This is bittersweet news for us all. Krys will be leaving us at the end of October as she is getting ready to have her first little one! She has played a huge part in the success of our gym and was with us throughout the whole pandemic/closures. Please help us thank her for everything she has done for BCF. Thank you, Krys for being an amazing coach and friend to us all! Her last official class will be on Tuesday night, October 26th. We do plan on holding a farewell workout for her in November so stay posted on details. 

Saturday, October 30th: Halloween Costume Workout  8:45am and 10am 

​​​​​​​

Join us for our annual partner Halloween community workout. Friends and Family are welcome free of charge (just be sure to wear your costume to class). The best dressed will get a surprise award from the gym. We will vote, as a gym, on best dressed after each class. 

October 2021 Athlete of the Month: Mariel 

Mariel joined BCF to get stronger physically and mentally. She’s only been with us for 4 months now but has been a regular in our morning and night classes. Mariel is a postdoctoral researcher at CU Boulder in the developmental biology department. Her favorite lift is the clean and jerks and her least favorite is the snatch. When she’s not crushing it in the gym, she enjoys hiking, traveling, cooking, and rock climbing. Congrats, Mariel! 

Happy birthday October members:  Ryan M, Angela, Moira, Linda, Denise, and Esak. 

Welcome new members to BCF: Chris, Carlos, Carolyn, Nick, Kristen and Christina. If you don’t know them, be sure to introduce yourself in your next class.

September 2021: Newsletter

Hi Everyone, 


We can’t believe summer is almost coming to an end. We’ve got tons of exciting events this month so please take a few minutes to check them out. We also wanted to send this out a few days early so people can plan for the upcoming holiday weekend. 


September 4th, 5th, and 6th Labor Day Weekend Schedule:


We will have our normal 9am class on Saturday, September 4th. Please note that we will be CLOSED on Sunday, September 5th (no open gym). We will then only have a 9am class on Monday, Sept. 6th. The rest of the week will be normal. Our Labor Day workout is open to friends and family as well. The Hero Workout this year will be the following.

Saturday, September 11th, 10:15-11:15am: Mobility with Monique 

Back by popular demand, our very own member, Monique will be running another yoga class for us! Join us after the workout on Saturday and bring any friends/family. Just like this past spring, the suggested donation is $5-$20 which will go right to Monique for her time. If anyone is feeling up for it, we can also all go out to brunch somewhere in Boulder right after her class. We have yoga mats but please bring your own if you prefer. 


Saturday, September 18th: Support the BCF Ladies at Girls Gone RX Competition 

​​​
We have four all lady teams competing this weekend at a super fun competition. Please show your support and come hang out and cheer them on as they represent BCF. The actual location will be at 720 Athletics in Denver. Once we know all of their heat times, we will post on the Facebook page and on the gym whiteboard. After the competition, we will all plan on going out for food/drinks down in Denver. If anyone wants to carpool, please reach out to Zach to coordinate. 

Saturday, September 25th: Colorado Rockies Game 6pm 

There’s nothing like Fall Baseball in CO. Whether you enjoy the sport or not, join us as we watch the Rockies take on the Giants. The first pitch is at 6:10pm. We can all meet down near the ballpark at Union Station for some drinks/food around 4:30pm and then head into the stadium. We will have a sign-up sheet at the gym. The plan is to get cheap tickets and not worry so much about our seats ($30 or less) as we will be a big group. Please be sure to sign up no later than Wednesday, September 15th so we can get tickets! 


Monday, September 27th: New Wyndler Cycle Starts

We will be running another strength cycle right before the holidays. Plan to retest your 1 rep maxes on the following lifts, Back Squat, Deadlift, and Strict Press during the week of Sept 27th. The following week, October 4th we will start the 5-week cycle ending on November 1st. If you want to read more about the details of the cycle you can do so here

September: Athlete of the Month goes to Mak 

​​​​​​​

Congrats, Mak! Before the pandemic, Mak was a regular at the Google fitness classes where he found his love for community-oriented fitness. After the gyms closed he found that he wasn’t feeling motivated to workout by myself despite having a home gym. Boulder CrossFit was his way to find a group of like-minded people and workout with them. Mak has been with us for about 10 months now and is a software engineer at Google. He loves pullups but hates handstand pushups. When he’s not in the gym he enjoys mountain biking, climbing, skiing and golf.

New Gym Layout was a HUGE success! 

.        .         

After 2 full days of hard work, the rig installation and reorganizing of the gym was finally complete. We want to personally thank the following people who donated their time to making this vision a reality. Thank you, Randy, Azteca, Dryden, Christian, Jen, Ryan H, Sarah M, Michael K, Fernando, Denise, Katy, and Giovanni. 

Lastly, we would like to wish our September members including, Doris, Emily, Brian, Ryan H, Serena, Kara, and Michael K, a very happy birthday! Please also welcome the following new members this month to the gym. Welcome, Natasha, Caroline, Nicole S, Sarah, Emmett, Ian, Morgan, Esak, Madeline, Steve, Phil and Max. 

That’s it for this month! 

Thank you for continuing to make BCF the best CrossFit gym in Boulder.

August 2021: Newsletter

Hi Everyone, 

Summer is already flying by! We’ve got some super exciting news for this upcoming month. Be sure to take a few minutes to read it and let us know if you have any questions. 

Saturday, August 14th, 9am-10:30am: Red Rocks Workout and Optional Brunch After 

We are excited to announce the return of our annual Red Rocks Workout. Last year it was canceled due to COVID but were back this year. Let’s meet in the parking lot at Red Rocks at 9am for a fun outdoor team workout. If anyone needs a ride please let us know and we can coordinate a few cars to leave from the gym. After the Red Rocks workout, we can all plan to go out to Brunch in Boulder depending on the size of our group. Please note, that there will be no regular class at the gym this Saturday. 

Saturday, August 21st: 9am class moved to 7:45am. Gym CLOSED the rest of the weekend 

We are gearing up for a busy Fall and end of 2021. Our classes are growing each week which means it’s finally time to re-organize the gym to make it more usable/safe for larger groups. Our plan right now is to move our current 40-foot rig 2 feet away from the wall, which will open up more room to use 4 more racks. We will then be installing this awesome new 14-foot rig to the lefthand side of the whiteboard which will give us an additional 4 racks and 6-8 more pullups stations. As you can imagine, this is a big project which will take tons of sweat and hard work.

We will move our normal 9am class on Saturday to 7:45am and then the gym will be closed the rest of the weekend. This also means no dropping in even if you are on the 24/7 access key. We will need the full 2 days to get this done. We can’t wait to show you all the improvements!

PS: If anyone is willing to come help with any or all of this, please let Zach know so we can plan accordingly. 

Important Note on Using Equipment: 

Please treat our gym equipment as if it were your own. We know you aren’t doing this on purpose but please do NOT drop any 10lb plates from overhead. If this continues our 10lb plates will break as they are floppy and not meant to be dropped overhead at any time. 

In addition to the bummer plates, please do NOT drop the empty barbell on the floor at any time. Most of you are great at following this rule during warmup and class but for some reason during clean-up, the rules get thrown out. For example, when unloading one side of the barbell with weights, some of you have been dropping the other side that has no weights on it. Overtime, this will destroy the barbells, especially the spin of them. Our coaches will try their best to remind you all during and after class so please don’t take it personally if we call you out. 

August Athlete of the Month: Adam B. 

Congrats, Adam! Adam is one of our longest BCF members. He’s been with us for 5 years now! He’s stuck with our gym because he was most impressed with our supportive community, great indoor and outdoor spaces, and great coaches. His favorite lift is the power clean but isn’t a fan of the front squat. Outside of the gym, Adam is an engineering manager at Google (specifically the google drive team). When he’s not crushing it in the gym, he enjoys spending time with his family and mountain biking/skiing. Next time you see him in class, give him a huge high five. Here’s to another 5 years, Adam! 

Welcome New Members to BCF: Welcome, Anne-Marie, Adam, Aubrey, Heather, Garrett, and Brad. 

Happy Birthday to our August members: Cheryl, Mak, Tatiane, Aubrey, and Aliza. 

That’s it for this month. Thank you all for being awesome!

Saturday, July 17th: Social Outting at the Boulder Reservoir 2-6PM 

Join us for our next fun get-together outside of the gym. We have reserved an area called Chandler Beach where we have our own Volleyball courts and BBQ pits. We’ll have lawn games like spikeball, cornhole, and others. We also have a few paddleboards for people wanting to get in the water. We will provide light snacks, (chips, fruit, cookies, etc) but please BYOB and any other food you’d like. Friends and Family welcome! We also recommend carpooling together or even biking over there as parking may be limited. 

July 2021 Athlete of the Month: 

Congrats, Slava! Slava has been a regular 6:15pmer for over now 3 years now. He first started at our gym with some co-workers with the intention of finding a group of friendly and welcoming people. Outside of the gym, he works as a software engineer for a local company. Slava’s favorite lift is the snatch but doesn’t enjoy the overhead squat. When hes not crushing the night workouts, he enjoys hiking, photography, painting and reading. Next time you see him in your class, give him a big high five!
