Fight Gone Bad Strikes Again! Have you seen the Polaroids on the Wall?

"FGB" Polaroids … Recognize anyone?

“FGB” Polaroids … Recognize anyone?

It’s been another solid week of training here at CFB and I’ve had a blast watching everyone attack “14.1” and get those double unders!
 
You may have noticed a few new people joining classes with you.  Have you introduced yourself?  Do they know your name?  Katie Jacobs and Inna Khidekel are two new members who just graduated our private training foundations course by conquering “Fight Gone Bad”.  Katie had her first class with the 6am crew on Wednesday morning and Inna is looking forward to the noon class on Friday.  Be sure to say hi and checkout all of our new members who’ve graduated with “Fight Gone Bad” on the wall above the sign in computer.
 
If you’re looking for some tips on partner mobility and some new paleo recipes, sign up for the CrossFit Boston Renegade March Event!
 
It will be Saturday, March 29th and you can sign up here!
 
Below is a little background on our new members.  Give them a shout next time you see them in the gym!

Who are you and what are you about? 
 
I am from Holden, ma and have been in Boston for the past 6 years. I am a social worker at vinfen, and I hate the winter weather. I love finding groups of people motivated to be healthy and have fun doing it. 
 
Why did you join CrossFit Boston?  
 
I joined CF Boston because I heard great things about their Coaching and sense of community. 
 
What are you getting out of the Private Training?
 
The private training was a great way for me to get oriented to crossfit moves and get motivated for the classes. Having the one-on-one helped me think about the little things I need to focus on as I continue on. 
 
What are some of your goals for this year?
 
My goals for this year are to run as many half marathons as possible and get better times each time, as well as to be able to perfect my squat.
 
What are you looking forward to as you graduate to group classes?
 
I am most looking forward to joining the group classes so I can meet more people at CrossFit Boston and have fun with more people than just me during the work out.

Who are you and what are you about? 
 
I am a 2nd year MBA student at Harvard Business School who loves adventure, travel and challenge. I was born in Russia and grew up outside of San Francisco, but spent the last five years living in London. I love meeting new people from all walks of life. My mantra is all about enjoying and living life to the fullest, in every possible way. 
 
Why did you join CrossFit Boston? 
 
As the President of the HBS Wine & Cuisine Society, I realized I can’t just wine and dine, I should probably move my butt too! Seriously, I had heard amazing things about CrossFit from friends who are devotees and who have achieved tremendous results. It’s an efficient workout that gets at the core of why we exercise, and the communal atmosphere is a lot of fun. 
 
What are you getting out of the Private Training?
 
I have gotten a lot out of private training, namely an understanding of the key CrossFit exercises and the importance of mobility, posture and correct form. I also know that I will be supported when I start group classes, and that the instructors will know which pitfalls in my form to watch out for. I have a newfound appreciation for the cross-functional strength emphasis of CrossFit and have realized I am not even close to nearly as fit as I thought I was! Pat has been an incredibly patient and educational instructor and wonderful to train with.
 
What are some of your goals for this year?
 
I would like to do the 400m medicine ball run in under 2 minutes, learn how to do a handstand and master a pull-up. I would also like to lose weight, tone up and get into the best shape of my life. I would also like to win at Paleo Golf.
 
What are you looking forward to as you graduate to group classes?
 
I am excited for the dynamism and energy of group classes. I look forward to pushing myself and achieving results alongside other motivated, athletic people.
