061215 FIRE IT UP FRIDAY!

FIRE IT UP!

It’s Friday baby! I won’t be with my morning crew today while I am still a “Single Dad” but thankfully Jess will return this evening and next week…ITS ON! I miss my morning crew if you can’t tell.

I have really enjoyed this week’s programming. Us coaches have already begun seeing improvement in both the snatch and handstand push-ups with the extra skill work that has been built in. Courtney finally broke the century mark on her Power Snatch and she got it for 2 reps! It has been a 2+ year struggle to hit that marker. If you need more help than we can give you in the class session, book a private with your coach. Even a 30 minute drill session will help!

If you are missing class, don’t miss the practice. These skill sessions are essential for your continued development as an athlete. If you are not attacking them with at least the same tenacity you would your favorite #HeroWOD or #girlwod then you are spinning your wheels.

Give 100% at improving 1% each and every day you walk through the door. Do this and look back in 365 days and WOW!

REMINDER OF NEW SATURDAY CLASS SCHEDULE

The new Saturday schedule begins tomorrow. The Gym will be open 9am – 1pm. There is ONE class at 9:30AM. It is a TEAM WOD.

ASIAN INVASION

Coach Mickey and the Sunday crew is heading to the China Pearl after class for brunch. Here are the details one more time in case you missed the email:

  1. We’ll be taking the 9:30 AM class and then heading over to China Pearl with an ETA of about 11:15/30.
  2. You don’t have to do the 9:30 class, but there’s a good chance you’ll be waiting for us in the event we run late.
  3. It’s probably worth carpooling there and back. Please reply to this email if you need a ride or would like a ride. Ideally, we would get four people to car and park at Beach Street lot (40 Beach Street) for $12.
  4. There may or may not be an opportunity to take in either bubble tea or Vietnamese iced coffee afterwards. The group will decide.

MOTIVATED MONDAY

“DO WHAT YOU DO SO WELL THAT PEOPLE CAN’T HELP TELLING OTHERS ABOUT YOU.”

-WALT DISNEY

I read a fantastic book over the weekend by Keith Lee titled The Happy Customer Handbook: 59 Secrets to Creating Happy Customers Who Come Back Time and Time Again and Enthusiastically Tell Others About You. As you probably could guess from the title it was specifically about customer service.

It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day of delivering our product, Fitness, to you, our Clients/Community, that neglect can occur with other aspects of the gym that are not immediately upfront. This book was a great reminder on how such neglect leads to a slippery slope of decay of the entire product.

I began thinking about CrossFit Boston and how the chapters of the book applied. The more I thought about it, the more excited I became because there is so much opportunity there. Starting with the quote at the top of this blog post by Walt Disney.

As coaches we stress the importance of virtuosity and continual improvement in our physical training. As a business owner the same effort is required in the other aspects of CrossFit Boston and is true for our team members as well.

Thank you for the opportunity!

Field Day

We had a great turnout for Field Day over at Artesani Park. Thanks to everyone that made it. Coach G2 did a great job organizing the event and it was a fun day. These type of events are an awesome way for our community to get to know each other better. If you missed this one, be sure to make the next one.

What a good looking crew!

What a good looking crew!

This week my schedule is limited due to Jess being away for a work conference making me a “single daddy” responsible for dropping off and picking up my little girls. I will be in on Tuesday and Thursday for my regular evening schedule but I will not be in during the AM classes this week. If you need to reach me directly shoot me an email and I can get you my direct line. Have a great week of training!
