TUES 12.10.13 Burpee penalty cancelled!

By | Holiday Travel Workouts, WOD | No Comments

No more burpee penalty!

Effective immediately, we're eliminating the 25-burpee penalty for being late to class.
During the holidays, and every day, we realize there are enough barriers standing in the way of you making it to the box. So if you're running a few minutes late, we don't want a few burpees to be the last thing that keeps you away.
BUT, we're all adults, so if you do arrive late to class, you'll be responsible for warming up on your own. For your safety, you won't be permitted to hop into class cold...take time to raise your core body temp and prepare your muscles and central nervous system for the upcoming workout.
If you're more than 10 minutes late, it will be up to the coach to decide whether you can still join that class time, or if you need to wait for the next one.
We'll still be assessing the 25-burpee penalty if you fail to sign in for class, so be sure to check in at the computer up front (or sign the notepad if the website is down).
So here's your holiday surprise from CFM: no more late burpees & CrossFitMas on Friday night! Come play!

WED 11.20.13 – Gratitude

Gratitude

by Coach Amy
This time of year it’s easy to remember to be thankful. That’s what Thanksgiving is all about right? One night where we sit around and stuff ourselves silly and maybe mention what we’re thankful for before we dig in.
But what about daily gratitude?
Do you remember to feel grateful for the mundane things, like grocery shopping?
Because thank goodness you have access to an organized store that has fresh, healthy food, and a lot of it.
And the money to pay for all that good food.
And the working car (or legs!) that got you there on a safe street.
And a warm, cozy home where you can store your food and keep it fresh for days.
And the physical ability to walk to your car, the mental capacity to get you to and through the store, the strength to pick up all of those grocery bags (thanks CFM!).
The list can go on and on.
So before you start to complain about the traffic, or the idiot that cut you off, or the lady standing in front of you paying with a check...take a deep breath and smile.
Because you’re alive.
And while even that is beyond our control, we can be thankful for every day we have here.
Starting now.
A good way to start your daily gratitude?
Start a list. Add three things every day that you're grateful for. They can be little things that made you smile throughout the day, they can be big things that you don’t want to take for granted.
Heck, you don’t even need to write them down. Think of something before you get out of bed in the morning. Be grateful for the simple fact that your eyes opened again. And remember to give your loved ones a hug/call/high five when you think of them. Tell that person you’re sorry. Release the grudge from ten years ago.
Don’t assume there’s a later, or tomorrow, or next week.
Live now. And be grateful for today.
