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!
