SCHEDULE CHANGES

I wanted to remind everybody that, there will be no evening classes today or any morning classes on Monday March, 22nd.

Starting in April we will be eliminating the 5am class.  But we will be adding a 1100-1200 class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday’s.  I encourage people to look at the schedule at the beginning of each week to make sure there are no changes. From time to time we have to close classes.

We strongly urge people to show up on time for classes. This way we dont have 4 different stop watches going all at the same time.  If nobody shows up by 15 after the hour for the 7 am class or the 6 pm class, the gym is closed up. Everybody needs to start signing up for class. You can go in at the beginning of the week and sign up for the week.  In the very near future there will be a (burpee punishment) for not signing up for classes.

Everybody did excellent in the CrossFit Total.  Some very impressive numbers were posted, and I think some of you even suprised yourself. The numbers will soon be posted. Just a reminder that if you want to be in on the prize money, it is a $15.00 buy in. Most of the money will go towards new equipment.

Thanks

Justin

%*#@$ paleo …

So, I caved.

Really, I thought joining CrossFit would be the last time I gave in to peer pressure. But here I am, almost one full week into trying the paleo diet.

It’s not that I have any particular beef (horrible pun gleefully intended) with the paleo diet. It seems like a sensible way to eat and live. But it does involve change and some very substantial change at that. And I don’t like change. Good change, bad change, doesn’t matter. I like my comfort zone, thank you very much. And that goes double for my carbohydrates.

So, why bother? Because I’m tired. Tired of being hungry. Tired of being tired. Tired of counting every calorie that passes my lips. So for two weeks, I’m giving this caveman stuff a whirl.

Granted I have concerns, some of which are valid and others of which are vanity. One of the valid trepidations include the annoying array of definitions of what constitutes paleo … or caveman … or primal. Each has its own set of rules, and sometimes, they flat out contradict each other. As far as vanity is concerned, I don’t like feeling like a sheep, like I started doing this because everyone else was. And I don’t know whether this counts as valid or vanity, but I mentioned I liked carbs, right? A lot?

But I have to say that so far, it’s going pretty well. I haven’t cheated, and my hunger level has gone from “Oh holy crap, feed me now before I eat my shoes” to a more polite “ahem, excuse me, but it seems to me that I appear to be a bit peckish.”

That alone just might be worth forgoing cereal in the morning.

The social aspect

I went to my old gym for two and a half years and never met anyone new.

I’ve been going to CrossFit for three months and have met at least a dozen people.

It’s amazing what you find in common with someone who’s siting beside you, dripping sweat after burpees and lunges and pull ups and and kettlebell swings. Like how much both of you would really like to return to breathing normally.

Granted, the point of CrossFit isn’t to make friends, but the contrast between CF and regular gyms as far as the social aspect is concerned provides nice side benefit. At least for me. I’m not the most social person, but I enjoy some friendly conversation. I never got that at my old gym. And I can understand why gyms intimidate people. Huge, buff dudes grunting and straining. Skinny chicks, huffing and puffing on the elliptical machines. Not the most inviting of environments.

What’s great about CrossFit is that everyone there is pulling for everyone else. It isn’t just Keith and Justin being encouraging and supportive — it’s all the clients, too. Slow, fast, beginner, rock star … everybody wants to see everybody else do well. Sure, there’s some friendly competition, but at the end of 20 brutal minutes, there’s never a shortage of “nice job”s.

Making friends, one pushup at a time.

CROSSFIT TOTAL CHALLENGE

March 11th and 12th we will be starting the Crossfit Total challenge.  The competition will consist of three lifts, max deadlift, squat, and press.  All three lifts will be done in the same workout.  We will then work on these lifts over the next 8 weeks.  This competition will have a buy in of $15.00 per person.  Prizes will be awarded to the top women and men.  The rest of the money that is raised will go towards buying new equipment.  You do not have to pay to be in the competition, but will not be eligible for prize money.
