February 2021 Newsletter

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.

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!
