Hi Everyone, 

Please take a few minutes to read our exciting news for this month. We’ve got a really fun event planned in March. Keep reading for all the details. 

CrossFit Open is COMING March 11th: In House Competiton 

What is the CrossFit Open? Click here for all the info. Every Friday in the month of February and the first week of March, we will be re-testing past CrossFit Open WODS. We will also re-introduce skill work every Thursday for this month. This will be an extra fun year as we will be running a special in house competition with prize money. This is how it works:

Sign up for the Open in the gym on the whiteboard by Friday, March 5th  (cost is $15 per person. $10 of that cost will go towards this non-profit organization whose goal is to bring fitness to at-risk youth. The other $5 will be put into the prize pool. Each member will then be assigned a team and a coach. We will have 6 total teams as each coach will be the team captain. Skill and experience levels will be dispersed evenly across the teams. This is how you win the grand prize (to be dispersed evenly across all teammates). Points will be awarded to each individual of each team each week. The team with the MOST accumulated points will win the grand prize money!

  • 1 point/person/week for just showing up and finishing the workout 
  • 2 points/person/week for any PRs (Personal records) Think double under, muscle-ups, handstand pushups, etc. 
  • 3 points for each top finisher in the RX and scaled divisions/each week. Unfortunately, no points will be given if you’re doing the at-home or any other version of the workout. 

Your coach/team captain will be responsible for recording all of these each week but it is your responsibility to communicate that with them. 

The workouts themselves will be programmed for the gym every Friday. This means if you show up to class (whether or not you’re officially registered or not) you will be doing the workouts. So why not put a little money towards a great organization and take part in this fun and inclusive competition? Need more reasons to register? Check out our new blogpost below.

CrossFit Open 2021 Are You In? Check out our newest blogpost with why we should ALL register for the Open this month. 

Coach Workouts: Mondays 8:30-9:45am and Fridays 10:30-11:45am 

We’ve had a few people ask about when coaches get together and workout each week. We normally do so on Mondays and Fridays and we’ve decided to open this up to members as well! Please note that these are NOT coach lead classes but just a time to workout alongside us. Reservations will still be required. The workouts themselves are unusually what’s programmed for class, but with some extra work attached 💪 All are welcome (and any workout can be scaled) so we hope to see some of your faces there! 

February 2021 Athlete of the Month: 

Congrats, Sanjana! She’s been a member with us for ~6 months now and is a 6 AM regular. She joined BCF with the intention of getting her mental and physical health back during the pandemic.

January 2021 Newsletter

Hi Members, 

A New Year is finally upon us and we’re excited to approach 2021 with the same perseverance and optimism as we did with 2020! We know everyone has their own fresh resolutions (as do we as a gym) and we hope working out is at the top of your list. We couldn’t be more excited for all the fun, challenging, and exciting plans we have for Boulder CrossFit this year. Please take some time to read our news this month. 

January Gym Wide Challenge: 

This month we will be running a special challenge for all members. The winner will get $25 off their next month’s membership so this one counts a bit more! Here are the rules. 

The winner will be determined by the following criteria. Most classes attended in the month of January. This also INCLUDES any open gym hours. Members are able to come into Open Gym and 1 class in the same day as well. You must sign into Wodify AND mark your attendance down on the Whiteboard on your end.  If there is a tie between members in terms of the number of classes attended the winner will be decided by the max calories on the rower! For example, if Dryden and Jen both come to a total of 20 classes in the month of January, the winner will be whoever rows the most accumulated calories during the month. Calories count during WODs and before/after or during open gym hours. Be sure to mark down on the whiteboard your total calories rowed.  

*if your membership isn’t currently set to unlimited, it is now. For this month only we will upgrade everyone’s membership to unlimited at no extra cost. You’re welcome:) 

January Athlete of the Month goes to…Gloria! 

​​​​​​​While she’s only been a member with us for 1 month, Gloria has literally not missed a class. She joined Boulder CrossFit with the intention of being a role model for her 14-year-old daughter, Linda, who also joined the gym with her. Both Gloria and Linda find that Boulder CrossFit does wonders not only for physical health but mental health as well. Gloria was super nervous her first day with us as she couldn’t do a box jump and now 1 month in she’s doing them for reps in the workouts. Originally from Honduras, Gloria has been in Boulder for the past 16 years and enjoys hiking and being outside. Congrats, Gloria! We’re excited to see your progress with us in 2021. 

Boulder CrossFit: New Swag

We are getting ready to put in a new order of hoodies. These non-zip hoodies are super comfy and a bit more warm/thick than the ones we ordered last winter. Cost is $35/hoodie and they are unisex. If you would like one please put your name, color and size down on the whiteboard no later than Friday January 15th so we can know how many to order. We have black, purple, forrest green, grey and light green.

January 2021 Blog post:

Each month, we’re going to try to send out at least 1 blogpost about fitness, nutrition, goals etc. Just a short read 3-5 min read. Check out our first one this month titled New Years Resolutions 2021: Yea or Nay?

Happy Birthday January Members:

We would like to wish a very happy birthday to Shaun, Brett, Chris B, and Gloria. Don’t forget to come on into a Saturday workout and plan with the coach on what you want to do for that class. 

That’s it for this month. Thanks everyone! 

PS: Classes will be filling up fast the next few months as this time of year is always busy so please be sure to register ASAP for your preferred class times. Don’t forget there is plenty of room in our 6am and 6:15pm classes as well as open gym hours.
