sunday, sunday. . .SUNDAY

It’s SUNDAY! Get outside! Go for a walk! Play with your kids! Play some frisbee, flag football, get to the beach for some vball one last time. Enjoy the weather while you still can.

 

Sundays are not just days to get out of the gym or for rest days, they’re days to enjoy WHY we get in the gym in the first place. Put your hard work to good use. Live.

 

Worse comes to worst….enjoy the NFL games now that they’re back. But maybe drag your TV outside… 😉

Graduation Day

by JJ Christopher in Announcement | 4 Comments

Congratulations to Division St. CrossFit’s inaugural group of On-Rampers!!! You’ve completed your training with flying colors and I am IMMENSELY proud of ALL of you. Seriously. I told you all ahead of time about the amount of improvement you would see within JUST TWO WEEKS’ time and you’ve EXCEEDED my expectations. Incredible. Don’t just take my word for it….check out your times:

I’m speechless. I knew you guys had done well but it didn’t hit me until I looked at the cold, hard data. The proof is in the (paleo) pudding. 😉

 

For those who haven’t gotten your second attempt in yet, let’s get you after it again soon! And Allison, don’t you worry, I know you changed scales and made it more difficult for yourself. Witness!

Out with the old, In with the new
