The fall weekend was such a success we decided to plan a follow up trip to Killington, VT for a ski weekend! We have the house for 3 nights, February 1st-4th (Thursday-Sunday). Families and non-skiers are welcome too. The cost for the weekend is $250/person. To reserve a spot click HERE. The spots will go to the first 20 sign-ups. In the event that more than 20 people are interested we will book a second house.
12 DAYS OF CFS
The much anticipated 12 Days of CrossFit Southie WOD will be run today during all scheduled classes. I created this workout back in 2008 and gave the workout to Patrick Padgett in a card as a Christmas present that year. This is one of my favorite memories of our friendship, as we battled this WOD out together every year up until a few years ago. I know he will be right by my side again this year pushing me to move faster than ever.
Amy and I also started doing it with our personal training clients years before CrossFit Southie existed and was the first in this format that as far as I am aware. Since, we have seen other versions floating around, but this one is authentic to CFS! Year after year and a great test of progress. It is great to see a lot of people giving it a first time go, and then others coming back for a second and third time and even my 10th time!
Looking forward to kicking off the holiday season right with the 12 days and hope you all will join us, all are welcome.
