Before I get into the title post, I need to welcome Greg as another new member. Greg comes to us via his lovely wife Venae that joined in October. Let’s all welcome Greg and enjoy watching his progress over time.
Our monthly benchmark WOD for the month of November was Diane. Diane is a lovely lady that you get introduced to by bending over and picking up heavy things, then turning upside down to do handstand pushups. Diane is a 21 – 15 – 9 of 225# dead-lift and the same rep scheme of Handstand Pushups.
This was Venae and Adam B’s first benchmark and their improvements in time using the same scaling were 24% and 44% respectively
Geno, Margit, and Adam K. improved by 24%, 11%, and 8% respectively.
Overall for the group, the improvement was 23% which is consistent with what I have seen over time since starting and opening the gym.
I’d also like to announce here that we have some exciting things going on in the near future:
for members, we will be conducting a 90 day change your life program where all aspects of personal fitness are explored (working out, eating right, and sleeping well). If you are interested in participating after the first of the year, please contact me and we can get you started.
We will also be doing a weigh in using a water tank to determine body fat percentage, base metabolic rate, lean body mass, etc. We do have a few slots left, so if you are interested, the cost is $40 for non-members
If you are interested in joining us, monthly rates are currently at $75 per month (for twice per week crossfit classes), and contact me soon for special offers on discounted elements classes (required before joining the general classes)
Merry Christmas to everyone, please enjoy your family/friends/time off/etc.
