Happy First Day of Summer!! Enjoy the abundance of daylight
Happy Father’s Day to all our Dads!!
This is it, your last week of back squatting. I know there has been a lot of grumbling and desire to just give in to such a redundant cycle of back squatting, and I understand. But, we are so impressed by all of you who have stuck with the program over the past 11 weeks, it really is quite an accomplishment. This is a true test of your will and your willingness to follow the program. Yes, there really is a plan to our programming and we are looking forward to seeing the final results next Monday when we re-test 1 rep max.
The Granite Games Qualifier for Week 1 has been announced. 10 min AMRAP 5 Hang Power Cleans/7 Bar-Facing Burpees. For anyone interested in competing and joining us in St. Cloud MN Sept 11-13, please perform the WOD, sign up to the community CrossFit Beverly and submit your score before Monday at 7pm. We have 8 athletes signed up and any and all help from our CFB family would be great. It really is a great weekend at an incredibly well run event. Open Team is 3 same gender team members, Rx and Scaled options are available. By choosing to join us you will be working out with and warming up with some of the top names in CrossFit. Stacy Tovar, Sam Briggs, Brook Ence, and probably the 2015 CrossFit Games Champ, Mat Fraser, to name a few. We had a blast last year and we would love to bring more folks with us.
We are running our Summer College program for all students home from college for the summer. Spread the word that $250 get all college aged athletes access to CrossFit while they are home from school. This is a great avenue to get them, or keep them conditioned for going back for Fall.
CF Kids will begin summer hours Monday June 29. The Summer hours will run Monday, Wednesday and Friday. JV (6-12 year olds) 11:10-11:45am and Varsity (13-17 year olds) 12:00-1:00pm. If you have high school aged kids looking to participate in Fall or winter sport, CrossFit is a tremendous way to get them ready physically as well as mentally.
Also, share with friends and family who may not want to do CrossFit or are intimidated by CrossFit about the Boot Camp run by Erika every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00pm. We will continue to honor the Groupon rate of $84 for 12 sessions.
Next Saturday June 27 is the Second Annual CFB Pool Party hosted by Beetle and Angie. We have a number of birthday’s to celebrate on the weekend as well as an opportunity to hang socially with your box mates and chat, drink, swim, and play games. This is an adult affair, so get a babysitter if you have children. The day begins at 3pm and food is being delivered around 5. It seems the theme is Mexican with a Mexican chef prepping delicious homemade fare and maybe even a frozen margarita machine. However if you have a beverage of choice please bring it. It is a great event and Beetle and Angie are incredible hosts, it should not be missed. There is a sign up sheet above the red couch. If you plan to attend please sign up by Tuesday so we can get an accurate head count for the chef.
As always, any comments or concerns can be addressed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond within 48 hours.
