TUES 11.12.13 “Wade”

By | WOD | No Comments

Wade's Army

Today's workout comes from CrossFit Football. CFFB Founder John Welbourn created the workout in memory of a young boy, Wade DeBruin, who died of neuroblastoma at only two years old. If you wish to donate to "Wade's Army," you can do so here.
From the Wade's Army website:
“Cancer is a word everyone knows. And a word no one wants to hear. Certain cancers are common household names. Most people have heard of leukemia, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, is mysterious to many. Wade’s Wings wants to change that. We believe the only way to conquer this extremely aggressive childhood cancer is to give it a name.”
These are the courageous words from the DeBruin family who are leading the charge against the pediatric cancer, neuroblastoma, in the name of their brave son, Wade. Shortly after learning to walk, Wade DeBruin took on a challenge that every parent fears for their child.
Wade was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 18 months old. Neuroblastoma is the leading pediatric cancer killer. Almost 70% of children who are diagnosed with neuroblastoma have an advanced stage of the disease, and less than 40% of those with this advanced disease live five years. Wade put up strong fight, but he passed away on November 12, 2011, leaving his twin sister and parents behind.
Wade’s Army was created to rally against Neuroblastoma. Last year the army raised over $18,000 in Wade’s name for Neuroblastoma research and support of families battling the cancer.
Today, Wade’s Army is gathering across the world to bring awareness to Wade’s battle and put up a fight for him during a CrossFit Football workout. We are recruiting you to join Wade’s Army to spread the word, support the cause and band together in the fight against Neuroblastoma.

Enjoy the workout!

Thursday night yoga is cancelled!

Join Amy's class Wed at 11a or Monica's class Sunday at 6p. Thursday night yoga will be back next week!

THURS 09.26.13 So what IS paleo?

By | CFMakeover, Paleo, WOD | No Comments

The Paleo Diet

By Coach Beka
With the CFMakeover right around the corner, let's address a common question: What IS paleo and why is it so common with CrossFitters?
Paleo is a very clean, back-to-basics way of eating.
It's not a fad, it's not a trend, it's a lifestyle.
It's free of all the refined foods, trans fats and sugar prevalent in the Standard American Diet (SAD :().
So what foods are paleo?
Meat & seafood, fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds and healthy fats...the way our bodies were meant to eat...the way our ancestors ate before the Industrial Revolution when grains & corn syrup & chemicals (Yellow #9 anyone???) invaded grocery stores.
This is why people who follow a paleo lifestyle have more energy and lower instances of conditions like autoimmune disease, heart disease, depression, IBS, seasonal allergies and other inflammation issues.
We'll discuss paleo in more detail at our CFMakeover pre-challenge huddle meeting this Saturday at 10a. I'll break down the basics for you guys & take questions. I have tons of great resources and tips so don't miss it!
If you're still on the fence about joining the challenge & want to come to the meeting this Sat to ask questions before deciding whether to join, BRING IT ON!
