Whole Life Challenge Kick-Off Event (Sat. 1/20)

by admin in Event | Comments Off on Whole Life Challenge Kick-Off Event (Sat. 1/20)

Twitter_Jan2018-2Get ready to start your Whole Life Challenge on Saturday, January 20th at 10:00 am when we host our Whole Life Challenge Kick-Off Event!

(If you’re interested in joining us, full challenge and registration details can be found here.)

 

This meeting will serve as the first day of 6 weeks toward a healthier, happier, long-term sustainable lifestyle.

 

It will proceed roughly as follows:

  1. Preliminary weigh-in and conditioning workout
    • Weight will be our primary body composition measurement. If you have access to body fat testing, that will be the best way to measure your body composition progress.
    • The workout will involve minimal technique, no barbells, and mostly body-weight/conditioning movements.
  2. Whole Life Challenge process and rule discussion
  3. A brief nutrition presentation

 

(Please bring along something to eat after we are done working out. The Kick-Off Event may run until 1:00 pm.)

DSCFacelift (Sun. 7/30)

by admin in Event | Comments Off on DSCFacelift (Sun. 7/30)

DSCFaceliftNext week Division St. CrossFit will finally be receiving some much needed building repairs. On Sunday, July 30th at 10 am, “We….want….YOU!” to help us put the gym back together. That’s right –  we’re calling on our community to put their functional fitness to use on the following projects:

    • wall-mounting the main rig
    • cleaning and re-oiling barbells
    • mounting additional handstand push-up walls
    • painting around the whiteboard
    • painting and mounting a frame around the whiteboard
    • sanding down the SPEAL bars

 

Participation is 100% voluntary but Open Gym and Olympic Weightlifting will be canceled that day in order for us to work. So, we hope you can make plans to help us get these jobs done! There will be no prep work necessary on your end – simply show up and we’ll let you know how you can help. Can’t make it? No sweat. We’ll make it work!

 

We hope you enjoy these changes and that you are available to help us make them happen! Thanks!!

Farewell (for now!) Coach Jodi!

by admin in Announcement, Event | Comments Off on Farewell (for now!) Coach Jodi!

ATTENTION, please:


Coach Jodi just got word that an army school she has been waiting to get into (due to funding) just let her know that it….is….TIME! But, she only has FOUR days to get ready to leave until AT LEAST September, if not likely longer than that. So, tomorrow’s 6:30 pm class will be Coach Jodi’s last class for us for awhile and I’ll be firing up the grills so that they’re ready to go by the end of that class. We’ll still be holding a 7:30 pm class too, so you’re welcome to get your workout in then and join the group for some food afterward. I’m sure we’ll be hanging out much later than that!

 

Hope to see everyone tonight!

JJ

 

PS Please BYOeverything you’d like to eat/drink since we may not have the opportunity to pick up supplies in advance. Thanks!
