Hey All! It’s Hump Day and I was pleasantly surprised with 17 of you in the 6am class. The energy was high and fun while hitting the WOD. The rest of the day will have to step it up to keep pace!
We have received the new shipment of CrossFit Boston Bumper Stickers. Grab yours at the front desk and show your pride for CFB! Don’t have a car? Throw it on your laptop.
CROSSFIT BOSTON SHORTS
After trying multiple shorts from different manufacturers, I have finally found a pair of shorts that feel great and are functional for CrossFit. You may have seen me in the Via Privé VPX black board shorts. I have been testing them, trying to destroy them for a couple of weeks now. They fit great and don’t bunch up at the waistband or ride up as I squat or perform any other activities. They are super light and dry very quickly post WOD or if you want to jump in a pool (yes, I have tried them in a pool too!).
We are going to take some pre-orders for next Wednesday. I have a S, M, L, and XL available behind the desk to try on. If you are interested, try on a pair and you can fill out the information on the order form at the front desk. The layout will be a small CFB Sign Logo on the left leg towards the bottom, subtle and classic. The shorts will retail at $65.
After having numerous conversations with different members after Regionals, we are going to be launching a revamped Competitor Program. I am bringing in Coach Kevin O’Malley of CrossFit Vagabond, Easton MA to design and oversee the program. Kevin has a ton of experience as both a Regional Level Competitor and coach of CrossFit Athletes up to the Games Level.
The first step will be to contact me. I will forward you the initial testing sheet that needs to be completed so that I can pass it along to Kevin. He will then begin putting together the plan. Don’t worry if the entire sheet is not filled out. If you know some of the outputs based on recent trainings then you can use those benchmarks.
I want to make this available for anyone that is interested in pursuing CrossFit as a Sport and is interested in competing locally, regionally, and nationally. The day to day specifics will depend on the number of people that jump on in. There will be at least 1 if not 2 days per week that we will meet as a group to train and get feedback from coaching. The rest of the time it will be the responsibility of the group to coordinate with each other and complete the programming.
The program will be $49/month. The fees include: programming, coached classes, check in with myself and Kevin, and continual tweaking based on progressions.
Email Neal if you have any questions or to request the form and get started!
