But the big shout out goes to all of you who got yourself down that morning to work hard for not only yourself, but for each other at the box. All of you have put in a great effort so far and progress has been great. The main attribute you lot have is enthusiasm, and you have it by the shed load. And already it has proved infectious, as many of the people now coming through the door for taster sessions have been folk intrigued by what you have been doing down in an old garage, throwing weights around and swinging on rings! It already feels like some of you are part of the furniture!
This is what CrossFit has done the world over. From a small garage gym in California, it has pulled people from all backgrounds and abilities into a community that constantly seeks to better themselves through blood, sweat (little bit of puke) and tears. And in just under 4 weeks’ time, CrossFitters from all over will be competing in the qualifiers for the title of the Worlds fittest man or woman at the Reebok CrossFit Games.
Each week, for 5 weeks, a WOD will be posted online as part of the qualifiers. So each Friday night we will look to hold the qualifier workout at the box so you can all come down to try it, RX or scaled, and cheer each other on. You don’t have to register for the Games if you don’t want to, but if you do, check out http://games.crossfit.com/ and register there for $20. A good way to see how you measure up against the best!
Alasdair will be programming the WOD’s this week so expect some ‘wobbling’ and grimacing on Curly and generally just hanging upside down, be it by the wall or on the rings! Squatting mobility will be getting looked at also for those that have tight ankles and hips. Keep an eye out on the fb page for more info.
Lastly, we will be letting you have a look at the t-shirt design later this week. So if you have any ideas or suggestions on viewing, let us know!
