Hey guys.

Happy Easter!

Few important announcements…

First off, congrats on everyone who participated in the open. Overall we placed 84 out of 171 teams in Canada East. Our best workout was 15.3, where you guys kicked some ass on those muscle-ups!

Some of our top individual performances…

Julia Perry 305 (Women)

Christa Aljoe 39 (Masters Women 40-44)

Matthew James 28 (Masters Men 45-49)

Congrats also to Brooke Clark, our youngest competitor who finished 3rd in teen scaled (14-15).

Thanks again to everyone who came out to support our athletes!

Welcome to our newest coaches!

Julia Perry will be coaching at noon classes on Mondays and Fridays.

Jon Lippett will be coaching CrossFit Advanced on Wednesday evenings and Members Choice on Saturdays at noon.

Ethan will be coaching CrossFit Advanced on Fridays and Sundays.

Their bios will be posted to the website soon.

We have two new classes starting this week, CrossFit Advanced, and CrossFit Light.

CrossFit Advanced will run five evenings per week, for experienced competitive athletes who have met the following criteria…

CrossFit Total (lbs): 900(M) / 600(F)

Weightlifting Total (lbs): 450(M) / 250(F)

Mary: 10 Rounds(M) / 5 Rounds(F)

Elizabeth: < 5min(M) / < 10min(F)

Fran: < 5min(M) / < 10min(F)

Amanda: < 7min(M) / < 12min(F)

We will be running testing during CrossFit Classes and during Advanced Classes this week. Regular programming will resume next week. For those of you who are interested in joining these classes, but do not yet meet the criteria, we will help you plan a means to get there.

Our CrossFit Light program is intended for new athletes, mature athletes, and anyone who is looking for a workout with less intensity than a regular CrossFit class. We will focus primarily on basic movements to improve strength, stamina, and mobility. These classes will run Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30am.

Lastly, we will be running an Open Closing Party at the box this coming Saturday evening. Look for a facebook event in the next day or two. Hopefully see you there!

That’s all for now. Thanks!
