Good News!

Welcome to Crystal and Rohan!
And great job to Matt on his first muscle-ups yesterday... and 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th, and... well, he did ALL 12 in the WOD! Also, Sam hit a new personal record (PR) on his 3 rep max deadlift. Congrats!

T-shirts and tumblers

See Lis if you missed the Grand Opening Celebration and didn't receive a tumbler AND/OR if you haven't picked up your new member t-shirt yet. New shirts are also in at the Pro Shop... get an American Apparel track shirt (unisex) or a ladies racerback tank for $25 each!

Class Levels

Beginning next week, we'll be enforcing class levels. Starting Tuesday, 6/26, the 7PM TUESDAY, 6PM WEDNESDAY and 5PM THURSDAY classes will be for Beginners. These classes will focus on fundamental movements and we'll do a scaled or modified version of the daily WOD. If you are an advanced athlete, you're welcome to attend this class for some "back to basics" work, or you can attend a different class that day or take a rest day.
Refer to the schedule on the website or email Lis with questions.

This weekend was a great success!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Fran Challenge, Grand Opening Celebration, Sunday's Park WOD and/or Hooverball. Attendance for everything was even better than expected!

FRANTASIA

Over the next six weeks, we'll be doing some specialized programming to ensure that your Fran time improves when we retest on Saturday, July 28th. When you plan your training schedule each week, I highly recommend making it in for Monday classes, when we'll be working on front squats and/or thrusters, and Fridays...er, make that FRANdays, when the day's WOD will be some version of Fran. We'll also continue to have make up days in Saturday classes, when you can choose a WOD that you missed to make up.
We're ordering Fran shirts this week, so if you're in on the Challenge and haven't given me your shirt size, do so ASAP.

Thanks to Carlos for organizing Hooverball again. We had 15 people rotating in to play. Tons of fun! (Pictured: Carlos, Mary Anne, Fred, Adam)

Workout of the Day


3x5 Front Squat (if you know your max, set 1 is at 60% of 1RM, set 2 is at 65% of 1RM, set 3 is at 70% of 1RM)

Annie
