We would like to take a moment to be honest with you all…
With the Opens having finished just a few weeks ago, the staff at Reebok CrossFit Back Bay has done a lot of reflecting and it is time to give some thanks…
We want to thank you for giving it your all every Friday, every Saturday morning, and every Monday (especially for those of you who doubled down). Even if you were incapable of doing some of the movements, you all showed up every time and faced the challenges head on. Pat yourselves on the back for that.
We would also like to thank you for showing up! And wow, did you guys show up! We had 224 people signed up for the Opens (including EVERYONE) and that is wild!!! It is a testament to your dedication that we were one of the most involved gyms in the world!!! We cannot thankful enough for that.
Lastly, we want to thank you for not just the Opens and not just those who competed, but everyone who shows up day in and day out. Maybe this year wasn’t your year to compete and maybe next year won’t be either. Maybe a 400 lb. Back Squat isn’t one of your goals. What matters is that you show up and you give is your everything as we give you our everything in return. And that is the exchange for which we are most thankful,
Muchas grassy ass,
Just as a heads up, every Monday evening going forward we will be holding the following classes in the basement:
The classes that take place in the basement will take place upstairs. Those classes are:
Hey Athletes and Visionaries,
We Made It!!!! Thanks to the success of the gym Reebok Crossfit BackBay is going Hollywood with most Coaches and Members landing TV and Film deals this week. Angelo Gala will have a soap opera on ABC called The Bald and The Beautiful. Its a one man show (Why one man show? Have you met Angelo the guy is amazing, he can do everything). Gino, AJ, Danielle Martin, and Erin Boyer will star in a Spanish Soap Opera (Ay Dios Mio! That’s right Nate we are going international) about love, deception, and kettlebells called Dormir En El Extremo Sur which loosely translated means Sleepless in the South End. As for myself, Bern K. Prince, I will be in a feature film starring Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, and Lisa Cole. The film is about a former crossfit coach making the transition into a professional ballerina. Black Swan Part 2 will be going straight to DVD and BluRay in 2019.
On a very very serious note, all day Friday and Friday night we will be doing a WOD for the fallen firefighters Michael “Dork ” Kennedy Ladder Co. 15), 33, of Hyde Park, Ma, who was killed in the line of duty on March 26, 2014 while operating at Box 9-1579. Dork is survived by his father Paul Kennedy and his mother Kathy Crosby-Bell. Lieutenant Edward Walsh is survived by his wife and three young children. Gino will be posting on the blog later this week about the WOD we would like to invite any crossfiiter that is a firefighter from any gym and anywhere to come down and WOD.
