First of all, I want to thank all of you for making our first Intramural Open a huge success. When Steve and I were first discussing the idea of this we had no idea we would have nearly our entire membership involved in one way or another. I am absolutely thrilled with the turnout we had each week. I have been a part of the gym since the beginning and this was by far the most fun I have had so far. Congratulations to everyone who competed in their first Open and all of you have competed previously….we made it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I love all of my gym family…you guys are the best!!!
The Open is always fun but its time to dial back the conditioning a bit and start hitting some big weights again. Next week we will start some new strength cycles and be breaking down some skills and be working on certain progressions so that we can be more prepared for The Open next year. This doesn’t mean we won’t have any long conditioning days but it will be much more balanced the next couple of months.
I want you all to check the goal board when you come in next week. Are you doing everything you can to reach those goals you put up? Are you showing up to the gym enough times a week to make those goals a reality? If the answer is no. Then it is not too late. Get right back on track you still have plenty of time to reach those goals before the end of the year. Please let me know if you have any questions or need advice on how to meet your goals. I want you to reach those just as much as I want to reach my own goals.
Now that the Open is over look at our event board and pick something else to shoot for. Run a 5k, run in an obstacle race, compete in a local CrossFit competition. If you have anything that you would like to add to the board just let me know and I will add it to the list.
News and Notes:
*The New You Challenge program is about half way finished and they are all doing GREAT!!! Many of them will be hopefully joining us in regular classes once the program is finished so please introduce yourself and make them feel welcome when you run into them.
*We are discussing running another 6 week session of Olympic Weightlifting Barbell classes and a Spring Kids CrossFit class in the next month or so. Please ask any questions if you or your kids would be interested in either of those programs. If you know any other kids that would be interested in Kids CrossFit please pass along the information once we start advertising for it.
*In the summer we are hoping to be doing the Athletic Performance Training classes for Jr High and High School students again and another Summer Session of Kids CrossFit.
Lots of exciting things coming up! Happy training guys and gals!!!!!!
