Welcome to the last week of January’s training. It’s also our last week where we are offering a free week trial. You know that friend of yours who keeps flirting about about trying CrossFit. Tell them here’s there chances. No reason not to!
Next weekend is a big one! There’s a posse headed to the interior to compete at the Okanagan Valley Throwdown. Marley and Austin competed as individuals this fall in Fraser Valley, now they take their show on the road along with more friends. Brew is competing in Masters, and Co, Chris, Clo and Candice are in the team division. Wish them luck this week as they taper down and get ready for the big weekend.
They are not alone for a fun filled weekend. The CrossFit Total is always a fun one. That’ll be on the docket for Saturday’s WOD. If you’ve never done it before it’s always a fun one. No clock, no WOD, just an hour of trying to lift as heavy as you can. New to the gym and not too sure about lifting heavy weights. Not to worry, as coaches, we want to ease you in to the lifting side. So, come along regardless, we’ll have a nice plan for you to!
Since we are sending our competitors off this weekend, it’s a great opportunity for everyone in the gym to get a taste of competition without leaving the comforts of the gym. It’s called the CrossFit Open, and it’s right around the corner. All you have to do is register online, and every week for 5 weeks we’ll be able to compete against the world by submitting your score online. You’ll be able to perform the mysterious WOD every saturday, where a judge will ensure you meet the standards behind the workout. There are masters categories, scaled categories, and teens. Usually, if you think it’s something you’d like to try, then you are right! Not sure, ask me. We can support you along the way. In case you don’t know by now, our gym focuses on CrossFit as a fitness tool, not for competition. However ,that doesn’t exclude you from 1 workout a week for 5 weeks as a way to motivate your training. And shed light on what you are capable of!
Hope to be asked all week long whether the open is right for me!
