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. 

That’s it for this month. Thanks!
