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!

There will be a morning and evening offering so let us know which time slots (6 am, 7 am, 6:30 pm, or 7:30 pm) work best for you. We’ll do our best to accommodate everyone’s schedules!

Week 1 is Done

Great job by all of our On-Rampers as we finished up the first week of the program this morning. I know we covered some complicated movements but there will plenty of time across your CrossFit career to master them all. We will get there! In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and come ready to get after week two next week. Peace!


PS If you haven’t had enough, come to our free WOD on Saturday morning at 9 am. Sign up via MindBody through the link at the top of the right-most column on the home page. Tell/bring your friends!

Day 2 of On-Ramp

by admin in Announcement | 1 Comment

Whether you’re a morning person or a night person, everyone is getting a dose of Day 2 of On-Ramp today. I’d typically post the WOD here but since we’re still just getting acclimated to the movements I’ll just let you know we’re covering deadlifts and press variations. Yup, you got it. BARBELLS! Get excited.


Post times and weights used in the WOD along with music preferences to the comments.
