We are open tomorrow morning at 5:30 and 6:30am. 7:30am is canceled.

The storm is supposed to hit us pretty good around 7am through the remainder of the day. We are trying to get in a few classes before the storm. We are going to play it by ear tomorrow for the noon and evening classes. Keep checking the website for updates. Sorry for the inconveniences due to the snow.

In CrossFit we push ourselves to the limit. Once we start a WOD we have to finish it, if we don’t we will beat ourselves up for the rest of the day. It is hard to not slow down or want to stop when putting ourselves in such discomfort. For me, it definitely helps to hear my name. This weekend when I heard my teammates yelling my name I picked up my pace and rested less during the WOD. Having support gave me that extra rush to pick up the bar and give it my all.

I have noticed recently that supportiveness towards fellow members during classes is somewhat lacking. If you finish a WOD first, then clean up your bar and walk out the door, you are being inconsiderate of those still working. I want to see you all support your fellow classmates by cheering them on, yelling their name, and letting them know that their performance matters. One day it will be you that is the last one to finish, and you will appreciate it. This is a community, make the most of it.

    Joe what are you thinking for collective goals? I think its a good idea, I just don’t have any lol

    One time I got schooled by Stacey Kroon. (There’s no shame it that, by the way.) She beat me in the workout, cleaned up her bar, and was cheering on others who hadn’t finished… all that while I still had yet to drag my ass off of the ground. She showed me right there what it means to be a Crossfitter. Now, cheering on the next person is my post WOD recovery.

    By the way, nice work in Waltham last Saturday!

    Allison’s post got me thinking, since we’re all setting individual goals, why not establish some collective goals? Cheering for and supporting fellow Southie fire-breathers certainly tops the list. Thoughts?

    A. Great commentary Amy, having someone cheer you on and yell your name mid WOD really does get you to push yourself harder.

    2. I agree with Haley, great extension in that picture, model form.

    D. Berretta, I hear there’s a storm brewing for Saturday again, so not sure if I’m going to make it to that farmers market, but if make it, and they are selling goat meat, I am buying it. And then I’m going to cook this and serve it over cauliflower rice:

    (If I can’t get the goat meat, I’m going to cook that recipe anyway, but with lamb)

    Awesome picture, Amy!! Perfect form!

  6. Allison 02/02/2011 at 1:38 pm

    I second Amy’s post. I hear one of the coaches call my name or other Crossfitters and it really does make you push through that last set knowing people have your back and want the best for you! Add cheering all on to the list of goals! Go CF Southie!!

    Shoutout to Berretta for ALWAYS cheering on his fellow crossfitters during a WOD.

  10. Jackie 02/02/2011 at 1:36 am

    I love this picture Amy!

    Screaming is awesome. This morning Alec cheering us on with “Don’t let them beat you” definately helped me to finish the WOD strong.
