Happy New Years

By There are no tags 2 comments

Happy New Years to all members of the CrossFit Boston community from our Team.  We really appreciate everything everyone has done this year and your continued support and belief in our product we deliver day in and day out.  CrossFit is great, but the true magic is in the community and that is nothing without you.

Reflections and Resolutions

There was quite a lot that happened in 2013.  Some good.  Some bad. Some great!  

CrossFit Boston went through a philosophical shift in that we reintroduced a more stringent entry process for those interested in joining the gym with our Fundamentals Training Program.  After 5 months, though it is still a continual work in progress, it has been a great success.  Our new clients are joining the group classes with a better understanding of what CrossFit is, a better grasp of the movements, and achieving their goals faster than I have experienced in my 9+ years of coaching CrossFit.

The gym has received a facelift and we will continue to do so.  My commitment to you all is to begin replacing out bumpers that have seen better days, especially the 25# plates.  I am also planning to replace/add to the bars used in oly as well.

We have had more members participating in local competitions than any previous year and that is exciting to see.  As all of us coaches have written before, your training will become more focused and consistent when you have something to train for.  Get after it!

On a personal note, I am looking forward the transformation challenge to reorient myself and my training.  The last quarter of the year was not my best for many reasons but now is the time to shed new skin and hit the ground running.  My family is in our new home and we are awaiting the arrival of our new daughter this first month of 2014.  This year will be a great year!

What do you have planned for yourself this year?  Where do you see your greatest opportunities to improve your fitness?  What challenges do you still need to overcome?  Post your thoughts to comments.

    Let’s start with a regret. I wish I had gotten off my ass and joined CrossFit Boston a year ago. Fitness-wise, it had been a rough year since I got out of the Marines and started at HBS (Harvard Business School). Not that I wasn’t working out at all, but what I was doing wasn’t [...]
