Allow me to speak candidly…

CrossFit (for whatever reason) has a fantastic masshole barrier.  Those of you that come to the gym know that the people around you are good people.  In addition to that, it is not often we get to have such a large group who all share one similar passion.  If this is your first week at the gym, or if you remember when we only had whiteboards, this party is for you.  And the more people that come, the better it’s going to be.

So get your tickets already!!!,

Please be mindful that we want you to show up to the Gala.  This is not just an opportunity to fund raise for a good cause.  This is also a chance to get to meet your fellow Back Bay members who throw down every single day.  A great occasion to meet the people who just like you, come day in and day out and give it their all for health and fitness.  The setting will be lax and fun and will be a fantastic option to improve the Reebok CrossFit Back Bay community.

More to come tomorrow,

Let’s get some more facts out…

The main idea behind the gala is to raise money for the 3 Point Foundation to build a CrossFit gym for the inner city youth of Boston.  The fact that we can all come together, have a great time, and help out while we do so only makes this a more significant event.  We want to gift these children with something we all love and are passionate about, which is health and fitness.  If you haven’t done so yet, get your ticket.  Come out to support this great cause and much, much more.  The link to buy your tickets is in the top right hand corner of our website!!!

Plus I want to see you all fancy looking,

Sun?day…

Two days into spring and so far it’s not 90 degrees.  If you or someone you love knows the manager of nature or someone I can talk to, that would be great.  I have a very stern letter demanding a refund for all of this cold I didn’t even order!  It would be one thing if winter were fun in any way / shape / form, but we should be done by now…we broke the record!

What more do you want!!!,

Hey everyone…

Great workout today.  Perhaps the first weekend WOD that has not gotten a remix this year (same thing for tomorrow).  Please be aware that this is not for time, but instead for minimum number of sets.  If you try and rush through this, you’ll get more sets (a worse score), then if you grit it out as much as you can and really learn how to push that limit.  Find a partner that is also willing to commit to your level of intensity and this will likely be one of the better grinders (not the sandwich) so far this year.

I did it in 1 set…wasn’t too bad,

This is weird…

I decided to Google the meaning of inspiration today and what I saw really surprised me.  Let me share it with you:

in·spi·ra·tion (inspəˈrāSH(ə)n):  noun
  1. the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative and/or whatever it takes to do less Burpees in the WOD.

That is one precise definition,
