Hey Anya…

Anya and I have had conversations about her having been a member for a while, but never making it to the blog.  Look at her now!  Front Rack position looks pretty good…She’s wearing a great T-shirt and looking fly!…some guys are doing stuff in the background there…great picture overall Anya!!!  If you would like to get your mugshot on the blog, which gets posted on our facebook page, which is liked by a surprisingly large amount of people (13,540 as of writing this), just send it over to gino@reebokcrossfitbackbay.com and you will get your wish granted…

Which is to be just like Anya,

Lucky rabbit’s foot?…

In European folklore the foot of the hare, and not that of a rabbit, was believed to provide luck.  Eventually after many people couldn’t distinguish between the two, they were both accepted as a talisman of good fortune.  It was the similarities of one to the other that allowed both to flourish still to this day.  CrossFit and the GRID are different versions of the same thing (just like those lagomorphs) and they both serve the same purpose, which is the promotion of health and fitness.  No one entity has enormous differences from the other, but each can be discerned as its own thing.  This tight relationship can mean that if one benefits, the other  one will.  Surely, we know that CrossFit can exist without the GRID, just like it did beforehand, but it would be difficult to see CrossFit suffer because of it.  The more options there are for the promotion of health and fitness at any level, the better and wider the message can be spread.  Just ask Coke and Pepsi or Apple and Microsoft or Tasty Burger and…well nothing compares to Tasty Burger.

Wink, wink,

Back to the Pak…

After talking to Dan some more, I realized that some of this stuff has a pretty good discount.  If you have a moment, check out the price difference between what you see on the RacePak site and what you see in other places, including from the site of the product itself.  This is obviously not for everyone, but if you are the kind of person coming into the gym and buying fuel for fire pouches by the handful, some of this stuff may interest you, especially if you like home delivery.

Ending part,

From The Associated Press…

MONTESANO, Wash. — Air Force Staff Sgt. Timothy P. Davis, who grew up in Montesano, has been killed in the Oruzgan province of Afghanistan as the result of injuries received from an improvised explosive device.  The Daily World reported Air Force personnel delivered the news of Davis’ death to his mother, Sally Sheldon, at her home in Aberdeen on Friday. Davis’ father, Mike Davis, lives in Ocean Shores. Davis grew up in Montesano.  Timothy Davis had just turned 28 and would have been married for five years next month. He met his wife, Meagan, while training at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane. The couple had a 1-year-old son, Timmy Jr.  Meagan Davis told The Daily World by telephone from Spokane on Friday, “My breath has just been taken away. I am still in shock.”  Timothy Davis was assigned to Florida’s Hurlburt Field. He was with the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron.

RIP hero,

What’s inside the bag?!…

I stood before my bag both amazed and confused.  The cornucopia of items was odd and delicious (the edible ones).  A few bars, powder drink mixes (a la sfh), and even some laundry detergent.  This sundry ensemble of goods led me to the RacePak website, which is race-pak.com (you do need the hyphen unless you are in the market for street car racing accessories, in which case, click here to go to their forums because I have absolutely no advice to give in terms of that).  So if you are looking into some snacks, give it a whirl.

More on the morrow,

Next on my list of things to address…

Snacking!  Specifically through a service called Race-Pak.  A gentleman by the name of Dan just moved back to Boston from London and he dropped in to Reebok CrossFit Back Bay.  Turns out Dan owns a company called Race-Pak that delivers snacks right to your door.  We chit chatted a bit and he told me I should check it out.  Somehow Dan found out that it was my birthday (no idea how) and proceeded to give me a birthday present with some of the stuff offered in the RacePak.  I didn’t get a chance to enjoy the snacks since I was aiming to PR on my BAC, but after the dust settled, I took a look inside my snack bag…

More tomorrow,

Sunday…

What I was trying to say yesterday is this:  Try not to get caught up in the rush of things.  Come into the gym today and enjoy it.  Go out and get brunch afterwards!  Spend these few precious weekends with friends, family, and other loved ones.  September and even early October will still have some killer weather to enjoy.  Do so now before winter is here and everyone starts hating everyone again.  I know I will!!!

That is, hate everyone,

Hmmm…

The weekend after Labor Day…the official start to the end of the year.  Summer is almost over…but it is still warm out!  Since the influx of people into the city has pretty much happened, by tomorrow we should start seeing Halloween candy and decorations out and about (though I saw them in a Stop & Shop a few weeks ago, which is outrageous!).  By Monday we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and by Tuesday it’ll be Christmas.  By the end of week from now we should be at Valentine’s Day and at that pace it’ll be summer again on Sunday.

Sounds like a great week,

Last thing about the schedule…

Let’s talk gymnastics!  If you have been taking the gymnastics classes here at Reebok CrossFit Back Bay, you should know that some changes have been made to them.  We have started a brand new Muscle Up cycle that will continue for the next few weeks.  As opposed to having two different levels of programming, we have added a third level, in order to bridge the gap a little better for those with beginner, intermediate, and advance levels of skill.

The cycle will rotate around 4 days, two of which are dedicated to pushing strength and skill and two for for pulling strength and skills.  If you stink at pulling, you should do more pulling work and so on.  If you have not tried a gymnastics class yet, they are now being offered up to five times a week, so come try them out since they are super duper easy!

If you have already been sold in developing your gymnastics strength, please be sure to come at least twice a week to insure that your level of exposure is adequate enough for adaptation!

Love it,

CG

More schedule talk…

I know you know, but for those of you that I know who don’t know, the schedule looks very different.  There have been a variety of additions and a few changes here at Reebok CrossFit Back Bay with respect to the class schedule so please be mindful when reserving classes.  These additions and changes were brought by your voices in our anonymous survey earlier this year, so thank you for your feedback.  More mobility, gymnastics, weightlifting, and endurance classes (including the 90 minute classes) have been put in place.  Also your coaches have shifted around so expect to see some fresh faces when taking a class.

One of the other most noticeable changes is the pricing for the gym.  There has never been a better or cheaper time to join Reebok CrossFit Back Bay.  More classes, better prices, same great coaching.

Welcome to RCBB,
