Some housekeeping items first: Don’t forget that tomorrow is the retesting of the 2014 Transformation Challenge. Heats begin at 9:30AM and will run every 30 minutes finishing at 12pm. There will not be any regularly scheduled classes. The gym will still be open for those not participating to make up a missed workout or hit some strength work.
FIRE IT UP! FIRE IT UP!
Great week of training everyone! Randy came to visit us and Vijay “Beefcake” Thomas claimed the second best score for the gym. If you missed the Facebook post…
Dennis The and Omri Levi also put their names on the leader board as well for the men and Shannon “She-ra” Flahive is now the leader for the females! Don’t worry picture coming soon. “Malleolo” also graced us with its presence for the first time this week. What a tough WOD. Adam “Captain America” Voci was the only person attempting to complete it Rx and he could not finish under the 15:00 time cap. This will become a regular gym benchmark so y’all will have the chance at redemption!
2014 Reebok CrossFit Games Open
There are only 13 days until the first WOD is released. Have you signed up? Why not? Listen, for the majority of us participating it has nothing to do with qualifying for Regionals. It is about challenging yourself under a competitive environment at a level a little higher than what occurs in day to day classes. You can learn so much about yourself with a little bit of competition.
