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!

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.
