Morning Classes Switcheroo

Important AM Class Schedule Change Going Forward- Please READ!!!!

We will be undergoing some changes with the morning classes due to the overwhelming popularity of the 5:30am class (I know it seems crazy that people love to work out this early!!). The morning classes are going to flip-flop. The RX classes will be held in Southie Green (5:30,6:30,7:30) and the L1/L2 classes will be held in Southie Orange (6 and 7am) starting next Tuesday (01/21- MLK day we will have a reduced AM schedule.

 Please know that the RX classes are not just for members who are planning on doing the WOD as RX.  Our goal is for you to graduate to RX classes after being a member at CrossFit Southie for 6 to 9 months.  The Scaled/L1/L2 classes are meant for members who are still learning and need extra drilling and technique work. RX classes have less drilling and more time for skills and strength work on the platforms.

If you have been here for a while but the L1/L2 time works better for you, feel free to come just know that the class will be paced at an L1/L2 level.  If the time is not an issue, it is important to move on to the RX classes to allow for more room in the L1/L2 classes. There is not sense of having crowded classes if we have enough space!

    This “change of venue” post has left me feeling like the very foundations of my life have come unmoored. What will my life be like when the 7am is in Orange instead of Green? Where do I belong in the world? What does it all mean?! Existential thoughts …

    My biggest question surrounding the move is how the Gentleman’s GHD Club will be affected.

      It’s a good question. Likely rope off the area with KFP charging a cover.

    Ahh if these walls could talk. I say goodbye to Orange with mixed emotions. On one hand I look forward to all the space afforded to us by the expansion, on the other I look back at my time and CF progression I experienced in the Orange class at 530.

    I remember my intro session with TJ in March of 2012. Feeling intimidated and oddly welcome by this beast before me I sheepishly went through the movements hoping to not look like an idiot. I remember my first WOD with Alec (once just a coach now a friendly adversary, great job this morning btw) that next Thursday. It was an open WOD with a snatch progression. I must have been a train wreck to watch. Things settled in and I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do one of these workouts as prescribed one day?” I didn’t think it was ever in the cards for a small guy like me. Looking back I have my classmates (HTK’ers holla!), my hard work including countless videos watched and some great coaching along the way (especially the old Fridays I used to skip Thursday beers for just to go to). Thanks to all for pushing, teaching, and encouraging me along the way. Thankfully you all will be coming over to green with me.
