Like we’ve been saying in classes: LET’S KEEP EACH OTHER SAFE AND HEALTHY!

  1. WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY! You’re an adult- don’t be gross and don’t skip something so important. In fact, practice good hygiene and do it before and after your workout. Also regularly shower, hydrate, wear clean clothes, and do things that put you in a good mood, etc.
  2. WIPE DOWN YOUR EQUIPMENT. Before and after. Maybe wipe something else as a bonus just in case- the shortage of antibac wipes in the area means that these shouldn’t be wasted on a single wipe. Be smart and economic so we can get through this together.
  3. WHEN IN DOUBT, STAY AT HOME! Don’t come into the gym if you’re sick. Your fitness, while important, only improves if you can allow the body through the stress/recovery cycle. Being sick is the stress so you don’t need more. Exercising would only risk getting better. Do what’s best for your health and our community. You can always work out at home.

If you were traveling abroad then maybe chill out for a couple of days to make sure you’re not carrying something that could be shared.

Our official statement on current events will be coming to your inbox shortly.

We’re done with November, believe it or not!

Last week of November workouts include a thruster/s2o complex, “SWING SET”, 5 & 15 (burpees, handstand walks, t2b, box jumps), push press/k2e followed by some bench pressing, then lots of lifting for the weekend: hang snatches, hang cleans, 3-rep front squats, back squat max, bench press max, deadlift max, we have the in-house weightlifting meet to find your max snatch/clean & jerk/total (sign up below), and whatever the metcon from the 2017 CrossFit Liftoff will be!

Other things to keep in mind:
– Thanksgiving is over, so less stuffing your face, more squeezing your muscles
– FCF BINGO COMES BACK THIS WEEK! Lots of prizes to give away, so win some lines!
