September 2021: Newsletter

Hi Everyone, 


We can’t believe summer is almost coming to an end. We’ve got tons of exciting events this month so please take a few minutes to check them out. We also wanted to send this out a few days early so people can plan for the upcoming holiday weekend. 


September 4th, 5th, and 6th Labor Day Weekend Schedule:


We will have our normal 9am class on Saturday, September 4th. Please note that we will be CLOSED on Sunday, September 5th (no open gym). We will then only have a 9am class on Monday, Sept. 6th. The rest of the week will be normal. Our Labor Day workout is open to friends and family as well. The Hero Workout this year will be the following. 


“The Chief” 
5 three minute AMRAPS in 19 minutes: 
AMRAP in 3 Minutes 
3 Power Cleans (135/95/65)
6 Pushups 
9 Air Squats 
Rest 1 minute (Repeat 5 times)  

Saturday, September 11th, 10:15-11:15am: Mobility with Monique 

Back by popular demand, our very own member, Monique will be running another yoga class for us! Join us after the workout on Saturday and bring any friends/family. Just like this past spring, the suggested donation is $5-$20 which will go right to Monique for her time. If anyone is feeling up for it, we can also all go out to brunch somewhere in Boulder right after her class. We have yoga mats but please bring your own if you prefer. 


Saturday, September 18th: Support the BCF Ladies at Girls Gone RX Competition 

​​​
We have four all lady teams competing this weekend at a super fun competition. Please show your support and come hang out and cheer them on as they represent BCF. The actual location will be at 720 Athletics in Denver. Once we know all of their heat times, we will post on the Facebook page and on the gym whiteboard. After the competition, we will all plan on going out for food/drinks down in Denver. If anyone wants to carpool, please reach out to Zach to coordinate. 

Saturday, September 25th: Colorado Rockies Game 6pm 

There’s nothing like Fall Baseball in CO. Whether you enjoy the sport or not, join us as we watch the Rockies take on the Giants. The first pitch is at 6:10pm. We can all meet down near the ballpark at Union Station for some drinks/food around 4:30pm and then head into the stadium. We will have a sign-up sheet at the gym. The plan is to get cheap tickets and not worry so much about our seats ($30 or less) as we will be a big group. Please be sure to sign up no later than Wednesday, September 15th so we can get tickets! 


Monday, September 27th: New Wyndler Cycle Starts

We will be running another strength cycle right before the holidays. Plan to retest your 1 rep maxes on the following lifts, Back Squat, Deadlift, and Strict Press during the week of Sept 27th. The following week, October 4th we will start the 5-week cycle ending on November 1st. If you want to read more about the details of the cycle you can do so here

September: Athlete of the Month goes to Mak 

​​​​​​​

Congrats, Mak! Before the pandemic, Mak was a regular at the Google fitness classes where he found his love for community-oriented fitness. After the gyms closed he found that he wasn’t feeling motivated to workout by myself despite having a home gym. Boulder CrossFit was his way to find a group of like-minded people and workout with them. Mak has been with us for about 10 months now and is a software engineer at Google. He loves pullups but hates handstand pushups. When he’s not in the gym he enjoys mountain biking, climbing, skiing and golf.

New Gym Layout was a HUGE success! 

.        .         

After 2 full days of hard work, the rig installation and reorganizing of the gym was finally complete. We want to personally thank the following people who donated their time to making this vision a reality. Thank you, Randy, Azteca, Dryden, Christian, Jen, Ryan H, Sarah M, Michael K, Fernando, Denise, Katy, and Giovanni. 

Lastly, we would like to wish our September members including, Doris, Emily, Brian, Ryan H, Serena, Kara, and Michael K, a very happy birthday! Please also welcome the following new members this month to the gym. Welcome, Natasha, Caroline, Nicole S, Sarah, Emmett, Ian, Morgan, Esak, Madeline, Steve, Phil and Max. 

That’s it for this month! 

Thank you for continuing to make BCF the best CrossFit gym in Boulder.
