Hey Members and Friends of Reebok Crossfit Backbay,
As Coaches we always are there to push and encourage our members thru a workout, now we as a staff are asking you the members to return the favor and cheer us on as we workout for a tremendous cause. On Saturday August 2nd we encourage all members to take part and come to classes at 209 Columbus Ave. anytime from 8am to 1pm. At 2pm we want all members, friends, and family to come by and cheer on all the Coaches as they go thru the 20 minute AMRAP.
One of the Coaches doing the WOD at 2pm is Brendan Ryan. He is a Coach, a 4 time Regional athlete, and despite the quiet demeanor has been a force in the NorthEast region for a longtime. For those who are new to the gym that’s Crossfit lingo for Brendan moves weight really really fast.

“Take part in your own self rescue.”
Skill: 3 rounds of:
1 Arm High Plank
Straight Leg Raises
Toes to Bar/Ring (try it with a Wall Ball)
You pick!!!! WOD: For time: 15 min AMRAP of or 3 rounds for time of:
25-20-15-10-5 reps of:
The winner of max HS hold will get to select the WOD format, the loads/heights, and assign the exercises to the listed reps scheme.
15 min cap
This can be very easy…
But it can be very glad. I strongly suggest (if you are planning on winning the HS Hold) that you think about this workout in the long term. The workout will go a little something like this:
The winner will decide the workout format (for time or as an AMRAP)
The winner will decide the loads for the Wall Balls, Kettlebell Swings, and the height of the Box Jumps
Lastly and most importantly, the winner gets to select which set of reps will be assigned to which rep scheme…this means that someone could select:
3 rounds of:
20 Wall Balls
15 Ring Rows
10 Box Jumps
5 Kettlebell Swings
15 minute AMRAP of:
25 Ring Rows
20 Box Jumps
10 Kettlebell Swings
5 Wall Balls
There are lots of ways of making this a moderately hard workout, but there are a lot of ways to make this an awfully hard workout.
The choice is yours,
Hey Athletes, Friends, Survivors,
On Saturday August 2nd, Jessa Lemoine is one of the many amazing athletes working out at 2pm at 209 Columbus Ave. We encourage everyone to come by, bring family and friends, and cheer on Jessa as she attacks a workout for our friend Pat Padgett. If you haven’t seen Jessa workout these are her credentials….Jessa is a 3 time regional athlete, 2012 Games Athlete, and Boston Iron Athlete.
August 2nd is going to be the day we raise money for Pat but there is something you can do for him right now to lift his spirits. One of the few exercises Pat can do currently is Pushups. #PushupsforPat ( Its 2014 so everything is a hash tag. Hey Dahne #loosechange #basicbiddys) is a way to support him and it doesn’t cost money, just email pics and videos of you doing pushups for Pat and send it to this link.
