In-House Throwdown: Saturday, May 2nd!
This competition is for everyone: first time competitors, newbies, long time members, seasoned competitors, and everything in between. This is a fun, no-pressure opportunity to get a taste of what competing is like. More importantly, it’s an opportunity to meet some new people at the gym… because we’ll be making the teams for you!

Teams will be co-ed and will be made up of 2 Rx athletes and 1 scaled athlete. You will choose the division you wish to participate in and then complete the workouts with the prescribed weights or movements for that division. Your coaches will be creating the teams to make sure that they are fair AND to shake things up a bit so that we all have a chance to meet some new faces at the gym. We’ll announce the teams and workouts ahead of time so that you can get together with your team to meet and come up with a game plan. Creative team names and outfits are HIGHLY recommended, though not required.

As always, we’ll close the day out with some beers, ciders, and a barbecue in the parking lot. We really hope that EVERYONE can make it and participate! If you are on the fence, talk to someone in class who did it last year or ask one of your coaches… we will help convince you!

Nutrition Challenge Results

NICK – Running Like the Wind

Nutrition Challenge Winners!
Congratulations to all of the participants in our New Year Nutrition Challenge! This 6-week challenge focused on creating healthy habits both in and out of the kitchen. On the nutrition side, the goal was to eat well-rounded, balanced meals with plenty of veggies and the appropriate amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fat while avoiding processed food, added sugar, dairy, and alcohol as much a possible. There was also a focus on getting adequate sleep, moving throughout the day, and recovery. We saw some great results from all participants. Great results do not just mean weight loss; results come in the form of improved performance in the gym, increased energy, body recomposition, and just feeling better on a daily basis. We are very proud of everyone who committed to the challenge for all six weeks. We know that these healthy habits will stay with you going forward; keep up the great work!


Female Winner: Mollie Hamilton
Prize: $285
Mollie remained very consistent and committed throughout the challenge, avoiding the temptations of alcohol and sweets. She did a great job eating balanced meals, hydrating, walking throughout the day, and getting workouts in. She also didn’t skip meals and prioritized her recovery with adequate rest days, mobility and proper fueling. At the end of the challenge, she lost 14 lbs (8.33% of her body weight), and 3% body fat. She also added 3 burpees to her 2 min max, and 10 lbs to her 1 rep max clean and jerk. Huge accomplishments! Keep up the hard work Mollie!


Male Winner: Joey Paratore
Prize: $285
Joey worked hard throughout the challenge and it really paid off. He did a great job learning how to strategize before social events and remained true to his overall goals. He was very consistent during the six week challenge with his sleep, daily steps, fitness, water intake, and overall balanced eating. During the six weeks, he lost 10 lbs (4.57% of his body weight) and 2.6 inches of his waist. He also increased his 2 min max burpee count by 10 and added 10 lbs to his 1 rep max clean and jerk; a huge jump in such a short time period. Great job Joey, we hope you continue on this health streak!

Nurse Carly says THUMBS UP for washing your hands!

Gym PSA: Let’s All Stay Healthy!
With all this coronavirus hysteria, we want to continue to be your happy place!

We have great news, the virus cannot be spread through sweat! I think everyone knows by know that COVID-19 spreads from droplets spewing from sneezing and coughing (yum). SO, we are asking that if you have a cold or cough that you take a little time off until the sneezing and coughing is under control. Just shoot us a quick email and we can put a hold on your account.

In addition to this, to be safe we suggest washing your hands pre and post workout and also ask that you wipe down your equipment pre and post workout. We have a regular cleaning schedule, but as you know the turn-over from class to class is quick and it’s impossible to disinfect everything after every use. Compared to most public places we do have a controlled environment with responsible healthy adults (with a few exceptions).If everyone does their part we will all be more protected and will have more confidence about crushing WODs germ free.

We all do CrossFit because it helps us stay healthy and prevent diseases. Think of this as the same, preventative measures go a long way. Have a happy, positive day!

A Smarter Approach to Strength

#TBT – Parking Lot Sprints

A Smarter Approach to Strength
I never used to consider myself strong in any sense of the word. I always thought that being strong meant that you were the toughest person in any room and that you could out lift everyone. I remember the first time I deadlifted 155 pounds, it was the best day of my life, even though the technique definitely wasn’t up to par. From that point on, deadlifting became my favorite movement. Although I wasn’t incredibly strong or proficient at deadlifting, it became my goal to become a “strength athlete.”

Fast forward 5 years and I still have the same goal to get stronger but with a very different mindset and approach. I learned that if you continuously tell yourself that you are something, then you will make the effort to become that thing. About a year ago I started believing that I am strong and that I can do what I set my mind to. I began to set actual numbered goals in terms of the weight that I wanted to achieve. With that, I began to realize that I would not get there unless my movement quality improved. In order to achieve my goals, I began to spend hours a day working with just a pvc pipe performing the movement over and over again, until I couldn’t do it any longer.

If you haven’t worked with a pvc pipe for hours at a time, it can be grueling. No weight on the bar, just you and the technique. It was obviously not the most fun thing to do at times, but I knew that if I wanted to perform the common uncommonly well, then this was the necessary work I had to put in. Along with my PVC work, I incorporated glute and hamstring strengthening exercises into my regimen every single day. As I started performing deadlifts more and more, I noticed that the weight on the bar was skyrocketing. I went from a 235lb deadlift to a 335lb deadlift in less than a year, and as I take the time to go back to the basics and work on the ‘boring’, my deadlift continues to get stronger.

I now think of myself as a strength athlete who loves Crossfit. I went from thinking I was the weakest in the room, to now graduating myself to being able to keep up with athletes that I look up to. In working on my weaknesses, I was able to boost my confidence in and outside of the gym. I walk into the gym with a mindset of not just wanting to have a great workout, but also with the intent to better myself in other aspects. I think to myself how I can stay humble and disciplined in the gym environment so that it can carry into my everyday life. This has given me strength and confidence outside of the gym.

It is the best feeling accomplishing something that you never thought in your wildest dreams could even be a possibility. To keep growing after the fact is just an extension of that feeling, and really shows that hard work and discipline pay off.
