CrossFit Kids Fall programming is back! Today Sunday September 17 with JV. JV sessions are held Sunday 11-11:40 and Wednesday 4:10-4:50. Varsity has ahad a great start to the new season and will continue tomorrow with sessions Monday and Wednesday 5:00pm-6:00pm.
The CrossFit Team Series begins next weekend. This is an online event where you grab a partner and perform weekly WODs to measure your abilities across the broader CrossFit communuty.
Two sets of partner workouts will be released with a live announcement on Wednesday, Sept. 20, and Wednesday, Sept. 27. In Week 1, pairs will have until Monday, Sept. 25, to complete the workouts and submit their scores. The deadline for Week 2 will be Monday, Oct. 2. This means pairs have five days to complete the workouts once they are released.
Pairs will be able to choose between the Rx’d and scaled version of each workout. Choosing scaled for one workout will not prevent a team from doing the next workout as prescribed.
This year, the competition will offer the same age groups as the Open: All, 14-15, 16-17, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60+.
If two people of different age groups team up, they’ll be listed in the most competitive age group. For example, if two athletes aged 36 and 61 team up, they’ll go in All Ages and 35-39. If two teenagers aged 17 and 14 team up, they’ll go in All Ages and 16-17. If a teenager and a masters athlete team up, they’ll only go in All Ages.
Also like the CrossFit Games Open, pairs can perform the events in front of a judge at a participating affiliate or film their performances and submit a link to the video on YouTube with each score.
Interest has been expressed in a Gymnastics seminar. An opportunity to learn efficiency in Kipping Pull Ups, Butterfly Pull Ups and establishing a foundation for Muscle Ups. I have asked Dave(TPC) to lead this group as he has a CrossFit Gymnastics Certification and he is on board to lead it. Please comment to this post if you would like to attend. If we have positive fedback we will set a date.
If you haven’t noticed Pure Indoor Cycling has taken over the back room with 15 bikes. For those who are looking to try a different cardio program, especially with cold weather coming or for a Sunday morning activity they offer many sessions through the week and 3 on Sunday. They are running a great Groupon deal if you want to give them a try.
If you are on Facebook and not yet a part of our Community Chat page please reques to be added to the group. The CrossFit Beverly Community Chat Page is a great resource for CFB info, banter and community.
We would love to get positive “Athlete Testimonials” to post on the CFB Page. We want to share our community to all who can participate and your testimonials are so important in giving people confidence to come through our doors. If you have some free time and have good things to say about your CFB experience, please jot it down. We would love to share it. Thanks in advance.
PARENTS:Please, please keep an eye on your children if you bring them to the box. We understand sitting in the lobby is no fun for them, but this is a safety issue. Barbells come down hard from overhead and can not be stopped even if a child runs out onto the floor. The staff is not responsible for keeping your children in the lobby area and should not have to police them.
Also, please clean up after your children. The coaches are not babysitters or maids for your kids. If you bring food/drink for you children please be accountable for it before you leave. This request is no different than asking you to put away equipment and should not fall on the staff. We are between two restaurants and we do not want to draw rodents into our space.
