Good luck to all our athletes competing this weekend at Crossfit Boro for the Rise of the South Competition! There will be individuals competing on Saturday and teams of 4 competing on Sunday. All athletes are encouraged to come cheer and be inspired.
A few scaled teams are in need of a substitute person, and individual spots recently opened from the event. Check the Crossfit Social Club Facebook group for team requests if you’d like to participate. www.theriseofthesouth.com for more details and movement standards. "Rise of the South Competition” page on Facebook for announcements on open spots available.
This week we will continue our focus of improving our Olympic Lifting technique. You’ll see percentage work for Oly lifts (snatch and clean and jerk) that will allow for building a good technique base. Expect to see workouts that are short but allow for full effort and high intensity (remember force*distance/time for physics?). Focus on getting outside your comfort zone on the workouts this week.
Crossfit Kids are back in action! Kids in 1st through 5th grade will meet on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 pm to 4:45 pm. All kids need to have an adult guardian fill out a waiver prior to or at their first class.
The current cost for a kids 10-pack of classes is $100 ($80 if parent is a CFHP athlete).
