No Yoga Today/No CF Kids Today
The 2017 CrossFit Open begins February 23 and registration is now open and CrosFit Beverly is a registered affiliate and team. The Open is a 5 week competition where a new workout is released every Thursday. We program the workouts all day Friday and Saturday. We look forward to ‘uge participation. This is such an exciting time of year as we as regular athletes get to showcase our abilities, our heart and our desire to push ourselves further than we ever thought we could. Weather your are competitive at heart, or just like the workouts, the Open affords something for everyone as we get to play for 5 weeks with every other CrossFitter on the planet.
The Open offers two categories, Rx and Scaled, it is a great opportunity to test your abilities against 250,000 other CF athletes. This year also introduces a new Masters category, ages 35-39 will now compete in thier own division. This has been much anticipated and much needed as this age group has been ignored. If you are new to CFB and this will be your first Open ask around about the excitement and fun of participating. You will learn a lot about yourself, so please consider signing up by clicking here, https://games.crossfit.com/.
You guys have completed your second week of the fitness challenge. The posts on the Facebook community Chat Page are inspiring and motivating. Keep it up and trust by making good nutrition choices, attending at least 4 days a week, and getting plenty of rest the lbs will peel off and you will feel better overall.
Folks have posted a ton of nice looking recipes on the page, plus we have an extensive library of recipes in the lobby of the Box.
A few of things to keep in mind:
-You are a part of a team. When you hit the snooze or skip a session that is a point your team will not accrue. Stay true to your nutrition and true to your team. Everone is counting on each other. Last years challenge saw the winning team eek out their victory by .25 points. Every check, every pound, every second off your Karen time matters.
-You may attend as many sessions you want a day, however you will only be awarded 1 point per day.
-CrossFit, Boot Camp, Open Gym and Yoga at CFB all count toward participation points. If you have injuries, pain, or other issues which require scaling the workout, that is 100% okay. We understand, so don’t skip because you think it won’t count. However, if you have something which really requires rest then please rest.

With the sloppy weather, please bring inside shoes which you can leave at the box or carry in daily. Salt and slush damage the floors, wreak havok on Halle’s back when she has to mop, plus nobody wants to do burpees in your slush puddle. Thanks.
We are having great success with filling the The Soles for Souls box next to the gray “casting couch” Thank You! We have already shipped eight boxes. If you have old runnning shoes or other athletic shoes, you may drop them in the box. Thanks and keep ’em coming.
TO ALL 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 juice or other snacks please note if there are crumbs or spillage. If you they got a cup of water; If they had paper, crayons or markers out; If they went in to the back and grabbed balls or jump ropes, if they turned on the TV to watch a movie, 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.
