Coach Rob will be taking some time away from the box later this month. Marci will cover classes however some classes will have to be cancelled but most will stay open with Marci coaching them. Stay tuned for exact dates! Thanks everyone.
The next time you get down on yourself about having to scale a WOD remember that every thing is a scaled version of something else. Double unders are scaled triple unders, 200# squat is a scaled 300# squat, a pull up and a dip is a scaled muscle up and a muscle up is a scaled weighted muscle up!
Today I went and watched a local CrossFit competition at CrossFit Train, and 2 things stuck out for me that I want to pass along. 1st, no matter how tired you are NEVER walk under or near or in front or behind of a person who is lifting a heavy bar! I saw what could have been a disasterous scenario happen several times because this kid was too tired to pay attention to what was going on around him! I don’t give a crap how tired you are just don’t do it. Period! And second if you want to get good at CrossFit you should definitely spend time getting good at the Olympic lifts. The heaviest lifts I saw today came from the people with the best technique.
“Abandon all Ego, all ye who enter here.”
I think I am going to paint this over the entrance to the gym. Ego just gets in the way far too often. First what do I mean by ego? The first thing you may think of when you see the word ego is probably some big testosterone fueled jerk who looks at himself in the mirror too much and thinks he is God’s gift to the world, but that is only one aspect of ego. Ego comes in many shapes and sizes.
Your fear of failure is just another form of your ego poking it’s head out. The most important lesson you can learn in the gym is that failure is going to happen, and it will happen a lot. But it doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress. One single failure, one missed rep, isn’t who you are! You are the accumulation of thousands of reps, thousands of misses, thousands of made lifts. It is this total that is important. Over time you will get stronger, over time you will get better. Stop letting your failure-ego get in the way.
Fear of looking silly is another common type of ego. Everyone at some point has looked dumb. I can remember all the times I did something silly or looked silly, but you know what is funny, when someone else brings up times they looked dumb I have a hard time remembering them. Why is that? Well because another persons silliness was just a passing moment for me and held no real emotional impact. In other words I really didn’t give a shit about you! Seriously we are all very selfish people. Now I don’t mean this in a bad way, I mean that we tend to focus on ourselves. So what does that mean, well basically how silly you looked doing that handstand pushup the other day, ya I forgot about that already. So stop worrying what others think cause they already forgot what you did yesterday, Seriously they did! Don’t let your silly-ego get in the way.
And of course there is the macho ego. The one where you see your lifting partner who is clearly stronger than you lifting a ton of weight so you decide to throw another 50lbs on the bar when you can barely even do the weight you’re currently lifting. Then bam! You hurt yourself and your done for a month. Stop letting your macho-ego get in the way of your progress!
Remember you are not one moment in time, you are the accumulation of thousands of days. It is your constant hard work that is important not your single effort on one attempt. Don’t let your Ego, no matter what form it takes, get in the way of you getting into the gym and doing the reps you need to do to get better!

Hope you can join us for this year's Easter-Egg Hunt WOD. Everyone who participated last year had a blast, and we're hoping for the same this year. It's a family-friendly event, with candy, fun, and prizes to be had. After it's all over, everyone can stick around to enjoy some bagels and coffee together. We're asking for $5 per individual and $10 per family of two or more; the fee will help us get some tasty candy, great prizes, and the bagel breakfast to follow. Please be sure to sign up as soon as possible so we know how much to get. Thanks!

WOD 3/25/15 "Fight Gone Bad!" Three rounds of: Wall-ball, 20/14 pound ball, 10/9 ft target (Reps) Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75/55 pounds (Reps) Box Jump, 20" box (Reps) Push-press, 75/55 pounds (Reps) Row (Calories) In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
