Sad to see the Olympics come to a close but the Mens Gold medal hockey win was a fantastic way to go out. #wearewinter so it's pretty neat to see Canada have so much pride for all the athletes and the sportmanship shown throughout. It's all very refreshing and inspiring. What was your favorite moments?, I didn't have a chance to catch all the events but I have many cool memories.
We are running a couple of in-house competitions to coincide with the 5 weeks of Crossfit Open wods. I think this will add some fun and healthy competition to the start of our season, especially for those of you who do not Crossfit to be the best at excercising but do it for health, longevity and happiness.
The first one sounds like a bit of a joke and at one point earlier this year it kind of was. We concluded that we had to make this long running joke a reality and turn it into a competition. We just needed a time and place and figured the Crossfit Open would be the perfect platform. If you want to get in on this (even if you are not signed up for the Open) write your name on the whiteboard on the east wall. Here are the funny details:)
First annual CFLA Shirts and Skins Invitational
Registration is now open for the first annual CFLA Shirts and Skins Invitational. This event will coincide with The Open, starting February 27. Each week, registrants will throw down with one goal in mind: not to lose. The last place finisher from the Open workout shall compete without his or her shirt for the duration of the next weeks Open workout.
In order to qualify, registrants must meet the following criteria:
1. If your shirt falls off at the first sign of a pushup, you do not qualify. 2. If your class-mates can describe your tattoos, body piercings or nipple placement in any sort of detail, you do not qualify, 3. If you can back-squat or dead-lift the equivalent of an ATV or miniature horse, you do not qualify.
Generally, you know who you are, and who you aren’t.
Ladies, you are welcome to compete as well. Sports-bras are acceptable, I guess.
Please sign up with Heather at your convenience. Registration closes the day the first WOD is announced, and shall be closed for the duration of the Open.
On behalf of the noon class, I look forward to laying public shame down on others, and likely myself. If anyone has any questions, I will be in a tanning booth for the next 4 weeks.
