Hey Athletes on Friday June 5th, at 209 Columbus Ave, our prom will start at 830 pm and run until 10 13pm on the nose.  After wards the after party will be at Tico starting at 10pm.  We are pleased that our first sponsor of the evening will be Tito’s Vodka.  Please email me at bern@reebokcrossfitbackbay.com as we still are looking for food vendors and other sponsors.  For people attending please don’t feel pressure to bring dates.  It’s designed to be fun so there won’t be a prom king, prom queen, or Trap Queen.

More details in the next few days….

Hey Athletes, Friends, and Family….

In February I began working on a film project and what happened next was amazing.  I reached out to MyKim Dang, an amazing talent, and then had so may people step up and help I honestly would have to write another blog post to mention it.  There is no wild motivation to this movie except that I wanted to make something beautiful and make something that involved Crossfit and art.

“I think everything in life is art.  what you do. How you dress.  The way you love someone, and how you talk.   Your smile and your personality.  What you believe in and all your dreams.  The way you drink your tea.  How you decorate your home, or party.  Your grocery list.  The food you make.  How your writing looks, and the way you feel.  Life is art. “

With out further ado…. Our creation…..

The conversation I don’t want to have…

Member who missed out)  Hey Gino, how was the gala?
Coach Gino)  It was amazing!  Why didn’t you go?!
MWMO)  Oh, I don’t know / 100 bucks / I am too cool / I hate kids and fundraising and fun and parties and good times
CG)  That’s such a bummer because everyone was there!
MWMO) Did you guys have fun?
CG)  Is that rhetorical?…We had the most superlative amount of fun
MWMO)
CG)  What did you do?
MWMO)  I got to do nothing / spent 150 bucks on drinks and food / did the same thing I have been doing on weekends forever and therefore it wasn’t special in any way
CG)  Well, I am sure it was amazing.
MWMO)  It wasn’t
CG)  I figured…no possible way
MWMO)
CG)
MWMO)  You’re awesome
CG)  And you could have been like me if you had only come to the gala

Don’t make me do this,

Will it be nice out?…

I don’t know.  It says that it’s going to be cold and snowy out, but since today is Thursday…who knows.  I blame New England.  Anyway, if it’s nice and you can finally break the rowing machine spell, then feel free to run outside.  If it turns out that we are getting more snow today then we did all of February, then sit on your Concept II and get to work.

May the weather be ever in your favor,

4 days left…

Just like that we have done 6 weeks of the Paleo Challenge.   Just so that everyone is on the same page, a couple of people have come up to me and have asked if we could continue with this sense of accountability after the challenge is over.  Something is being put together and there are a few options for those of you who are interested.  Stay in touch here for more updates on that and ideally we can guilt you into eating well year round!

Love it,
