15.1 can be done this morning if you were not able to come in Friday or Saturday.
Everyone’s performance in 15.1 has been quite impressive! We have seen PRs galore on C&J and the work and intensity has been phenomenal. I know you are all tired of hearing this, but I really do love this time of year. The heart, the dedication and the community is absolutely incredible. Now, don’t let that hard work go to waste. go to games.crossfit.com and submit your score before 7:00pm Monday March 2.
For 15.2 Saturday we are going to have breakfast catered by Chucks Souther BBQ at the Box for after the last heat finishes. We want to keep the spirit and inclusivity in the Box, so plan to come in to do 15.2 on Saturday and eat and converse post WOD. Food will be $10 per person.
Because of traffic flow issues on Parade day, the Box will be CLOSED Sunday March 15.
Sweat pants are in and available in front of the box with all other merchandise. $40 and they are a unisex sizing. We will be putting in the final order for Charcoal gray hoodies tomorrow, not the marled ones we have in stock if anyone wants one. This will be a custom run and we will not be holding inventory, so if you want one please reply to “comments’ here.
As stated in previous news posts, we are going to shake up the schedule a little starting March 10. We will be turning 5pm into a Boot Camp. This change will not effect any of our current membership. No increase for attending. The session will be geared to an audience who may not want to lift barbells or learn Olympic lifts. It will be an hour of programming using plyo work, kettlebells, med balls and met con. Please share with your non-CFB friends who may be intimidated by CrossFit, but want a good workout using CrossFit methodology sans barbells and heavy lifting. If this session proves to be successful we will consider introducing an AM version.
As part of our introduction of Boot Camp to CFB, we have scheduled a Groupon to run tomorrow, Monday March 2. If you have any friends interested in Boot camp share this information. The Groupon is for $84 for 6 weeks (12 sessions.) That is $7 per class and we hope to see a huge turnout to share our fantastic community and space with all our neighbors who are a little timid to try CrossFit. Erika will be leading the classes and she has already programed some pretty intense workouts. We are really looking forward to this new chapter at CFB.
We will begin a new On-Ramp Monday March 9 at 6:30 pm. Through our referral program of 25% off one month’s membership, we have returned $550 in membership dues to athletes who have shared our On-Ramp with friends and family who in turn have joined the program. This is a great opportunity for you to save a couple of bucks while sharing your passion for CFB.
We are proud to be a host gym again for the Fourth Annual Workout to Wipeout Domestic Violence. We have been involved with A.N.D and the Morgan Park Juniors since they started this event and we will continue to support this noble cause as long as the run it and invite us to participate. The date is Saturday March 21. While we will be doing the Open WOD, we would appreciate a $25 donation.
We would really like to send a team of 8 to Michigan City for the United Way Dodgeball Tournament being held May 16 from 10:00-2:00pm at Marquette High School. We preach and promote playing other sports and activities, so what can be more fun then Dodgeball for the United Way? We will put up a sign up sheet for those interested. It would be great to get 2 teams if at all possible.
