October 2020 Newsletter

Hi Members, 

Fall has officially arrived! While many of us are getting ready for the holiday season right around the corner and hoping for a better 2021, don’t forget that your fitness should be one of your top priorities. That means trying to get in here at the very least 2-3 times a week. 

Recap of September 30k Squat Challenge:

While we officially tallied a total of 26,243, squats, something tells me not everyone recorded every single squat they did this month. Congrats to our top 2 finishers. Brian with a total of 2600 and Randy with a total of 2075. We will hold off on our next challenge until after the holidays in January. The next challenge will come with a very enticing reward for the top finisher. Stay tuned. 

Recap of our Wendler Strength Cycle: 

Congrats to everyone who PR’d on their lifts this past cycle! All your consistency and hard work paid off and we saw some huge jumps in everyone’s back squat, deadlift, and strict press. We are going to take a break from these lifts and focus more on gymnastics, and Olympic lifts over the next 2-3 months. We will start another strength cycle in the new year. 

October 2020 Athlete of the Month:

This time our member of the month goes to Michael! Michael has been a member with us just under a year and is a regular at our noon class. He consistently puts in the work 5 times a week and has a great attitude towards fitness. Michael is a User Experience Designer at Workday. His favorite Crossfit WOD is Murph. His advice to people just starting out is to be kind to yourself, celebrate your own progress, and don’t compare yourself to others. Outside the gym, he enjoys photography, music, and spending time with his wife and daughter. Keep up the awesome work, Michael:) 

Saturday, October 31st: Halloween WOD 9AM 

Join us for a fun 9am class as we celebrate Halloween together. Be sure to dress up in your costumes and bring any friends/family you want. This will most likely be a partner WOD (socially distanced, of course) and will be done mostly outside of the gym in our parking lot. 

New Boulder Crossfit New Swag: 

Don’t forget about our new t-shirts/tanks that arrived last week. The cost is $20/shirt or $35 if you buy 2. Please be sure to mark your name down on the clipboard next to the stereo system. 

Happy Birthday October Members: 

We want to wish a happy birthday to Angela, Moira B, Dylan, and Denise. Don’t forget to come on into a Saturday WOD and make up the workout for the class! 

Welcome New Members to BCF: 

We’ve got several new faces in the gym this month. Be sure to introduce yourself if you don’t recognize someone in your next class. Welcome Krill, Cora, Ligia, Riley, Alexandra, Giovanni, Siva, Rich, and Jonathan. 

That’s it for this month. 

Thanks again for all your continued support of Boulder Crossfit!
