A sad day is upon us my Friends. It has come to my attention that Seth and Morgan Kareus are leaving our community to pursue bigger, better opportunities in Colorado. Seth and Morgan have been an active, vibrant part of our community at CrossFit Woodstock, and we are sad to see them go! We wish them both all the best in their new adventure, and we hope they find another outstanding community to be a part of. By the way, they left a pretty awesome gift for us, check it out before class tomorrow :). This is your last dance with “Grace”, so get in here and give it your best shot!

Sorry for the late post, still in recovery mode after celebrating our nation’s independence from tyranny and oppression. As a side note, the irony of that statement juxtaposed against our current foreign policy in the Middle East makes me cringe…

Here we are again Fitness Friends!

The beginning of another great week in the Northwest, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for more sunshine! I hope everyone had a restorative and relaxing weekend, whatever that means for you. I enjoyed an amazing weekend rafting down the Lower Deschutes with a group of great friends, and we had an outstanding trip :). I hope you are all taking opportunities during the summer to get out and play hard! We spend some much time in the gym, training our bodies to be ready for anything, sometimes we forget what it feels like to use our bodies in other meaningful, enjoyable ways. Get our there and play! If you happen to swing by the gym tomorrow, here is what we will be doing…

Hello Again Fitness Friends!

With an official website up again, and a few minutes to kill, I will now wax philosophical on you while you read through the WOD and convince yourself you need to get your happy butt to the gym tomorrow :). So far this year, there have been a few monumental changes at CrossFit Woodstock, and I want to take a minute to express my thanks and gratitude to all the members of our community. While we are business, and ultimately, one of our goals is to make a profit, the true value of our facility and our community comes from the people who spend their time training here. Without you, I literally would not have a job! I would also miss the opportunity to interact with people who make the choice everyday to create better versions of themselves, and then put in the work to achieve their goals and their dreams. We all do CrossFit for different reasons, but we all share the motivation that gets us into the gym on a consistent basis. We all know what it feels like to push ourselves a little farther, lift a little heavier, breathe a little harder, and we all know how important it is to conquer those little challenges on a regular basis. I know, it’s just excercise. But that isn’t the point. The point is we are part of something bigger than ourselves. We are there to motivate each other. We are there to support each other. We are there to encourage each other. We are all there because we all know it just wouldn’t be as much fun if we were doing it alone (TWSS!). Anyway, that was a bit long-winded, but thank you. Keep showing up, keeping bringing your friends and families, keep doing great work on those black mats. Here is today’s fun…

WOD Wednesday, June 27th 2012

Gymnastics: 3 x 10 Straight-Leg Raise, 10 x 10 sec handstand (w/partner in free space), 3 x 10 dip, 50 double-unders

Strength:One Arm Bent Over Row 7 x 2

WOD: EMOM FOR 12 MINUTES: 1 Deadlift, 1 power clean, 1 push press @ 155/95, 5 strict pullups (EMOM = every minute, on the minute. Perform the prescribed work as quickly as possible, each minute. Take the remainer of each minute to rest.)

Lower Body Mobility: Straddle Stretch, Pigeon Pose, Quad Roll, Calf Roll

Eat Well, Train Safe, Play Hard!


Happy Website!!

Alright, we are up and running! It will take me a week or so to get all the peices in place, but at least we are functional for now. I will be posting the daily workouts here, as well as some other interesting stuff that might pertain in some relatively random way to what we do at the gym every day. I’m setting no parameters for how weird it might get, but I promise it won’t be boring. Make sure you subscribe to the blog, so you can always be the first one to know when the WOD is posted. Leave comments and interact with each other here, post your results and PR’s, you know, build community and all that :). Enough babbling, here is today’s work…

WOD for Tuesday, June 26th 2012

Gymnastics: 3x 10 pushups, 3 x 3 wall walk, 3 x 15 squat, run 400m

I’ll keep posting this on the FB page for the rest of this week. Make sure you check both sites until I have worked out the kinks on this page, and everything should be good to go in no time at all. Until next time…
