Lis & Dan make good on their lost SuperBowl bet and do 50 burpees (notice Dan actually does 51) as a triumphant Nate heckles around them. Nate was nice enough to provide background music for the festivities. Dan made good on his prediction of a 2:30 finish time and was nice enough to drag Lis out super fast, way off her pace, to a 2:42ish finish. Both would later regret this blistering pace and lack of a warm-up.

CrossFit Games Open

by Coach Dyer
The CrossFit Games Open is less than a month away. If you think you might be the kind of person who likes to have fun, sign up.

Dates: March 6 to April 7
Cost: $20
What is it?: CrossFit HQ will announce 1 workout on Wednesday March 6th and you have until Sunday evening to complete the workout in front of a judge and upload your score. This will happen for 5 consecutive weeks with a new workout each week. Your score(s) will give you a worldwide and regional ranking - so, you can finally go head-to-head against your friends who live outside of Atlanta or who train at another gym.
Where?: We'll complete (and judge and validate your scores) all workouts here at CFM each week. If you have to travel one of these weeks, you can still do the WOD at any other participating CrossFit affiliate.

Sign up. The more of us who do this the more fun it will be for all of us.

Noon yoga starts today!

Beth is back teaching yoga, now on Wednesdays at noon in the front room.
Yoga can help with many ailments/complaints I regularly hear about from CFM students: you're achy, sore, tight, inflexible, unable to concentrate, stressed out, unable to relax...
Yoga is INCLUDED in your CFM membership. It doesn't even count as one of your weekly classes, so give it a try! We even have some spare mats you can use.
In addition to Beth's Wednesday noon class, Monica also teaches a yoga class Thursdays at 8:15p at CFM.

Last Friday's noon class doing their best flying squirrel imitations for Coach Woody. If you've never attended Animal Warm-Up Friday, you are missing out. Big time.
