WED 12.11.13 Ripped!

By | Holiday Travel Workouts, WOD | One Comment

Ripped!

by Coach Cassie
I love, Love, LOVE the hard work and effort put into workouts with lots of pull up reps (like “Angie” last Friday) from everyone BUT what I don’t love is seeing rips on your hands!
It seems to be sort of a bragging right in the CrossFit community w/ people comparing rips, posting rip pics on social media, etc. But really, having shredded, bloody hands is just not smart or functional to your training and daily life.
Not being able to use your hands effectively for a few days is not worthy of accolade.
Let’s be real and call it what it really is… an injury that keeps you from working out or has you drastically scaling your workout.
Ripped hands are lacerations, not badassness. Let’s take care of those hands! Check out these tips to prevent rips.

Holiday Travel Workout

5 rounds:

Rest 1:00

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!

Open Gym schedule starts NOV 1 (that’s Friday). We’re super excited you all are chomping at the bit to get in for Open Gym time though!

Halloween Party is tomorrow
