***Happy Birthday Johanna***
Box CLOSED: Happy Father’s Day
Our strict pull ups cycle is underway and folks are already stating improvements in their performance. Every Tuesday we will perform 50 strict pull ups for time. The intention is to get all of us more proficient at our strict gymnastics work which will help us with our kipping pull ups, C2B, bar MUs and Ring MUs. If you beat your week 1 time handily, then grab a thinner band and work on setting a time to beat with the thinner band.
Also we have tested your 1 rep max in the snatch and the clean & jerk. We will be using those numbers, starting this Thursday, for the next 6-8 weeks to work on better movement and mechanics of the Olympic lifts. T0 be proficient in the Olympic lifts helps us as athletes be better at so many other things in and out of the box. I am excited for this program to begin as I think it will turn on a lightbulb for good movement.
The Third Annual CFB-McArdle Pool Party is set for this coming Saturday June 25. The McArdles have been gracious to open their home and pool to the community for a summer get together. Food will be catered by a Mexican Food Truck and we will have frozen Margaritas and Frozen Cherry Lemonades. IF you have a beverage of choice for yourself, there will be plenty of coolers and fridge space to hold them. We need to give the caterer a head count for food, so please sign the RSVP sheet next to the office at the box by day after tomorrow, Tuesday June 21.
For those who are not on Facebook, or are, but are not registered with the CrossFit Beverly Community Chat Page (if this is the case please become a participant.) We wanted to share this not from one of our neighbors. A little kindness goes a long way. Thanks to everyone who signed the card.
THIS IS HOW YOU RUN A BUSINESS !!!! I just opened my mail and inside was a thank you note from CrossFit Beverly , the note was because I had turned on my garden sprinkler and laid it in my front lawn so when the people that were working out at crossFit could run though the water spray and cool down do to the extreme heat that day . A simple thank you note , that I greatly appreciate !!!only if more people / BUSINESS would take the time to do what CrossFit Beverly did. Thank you very much !! Dave Engel
We have reserved the Alsip pool for a swimming WOD. For those of you who are new, we have done this in years past and it is a great time. This is an opportunity for us to take our training out of the box and experience something new. The event is Saturday July 23 and this will be our Team WOD for the week. We are booking the pool before open hours and we will have the pool to ourselves from 10am-12pm. All CFB members and family are invited. If you have little ones and want to wade in the shallow end, by all means bring them. We will follow the swim WOD with a kickball/softball game in the park behind the pool and then grill some lunch in the picnic area.

Parents. Before leaving the box, if you bring children, please look around the area your children were in. If you brought with them chips, crackers, pretzels or other snacks; If they had paper, crayons or markers out; If they went in to the back and grabbed balls or jump ropes, please clean up after them. We have brooms and dust pans in the laundry room. Please respect the coaches and staff to not have to clean up after your children. Much like you clean up your gear after a workout we would appreciate the same with the children.
