Drew's Words of Wisdom...
I read a really good book recently, "Chop Wood, Carry Water" . It was about falling in love with the PROCESS not necessarily the outcome. I will try my best to paraphrase a very POTENT story from the first part of the book.
A master architect was known all over the world for using the best techniques, getting the best materials and obsessing over perfecting EVERY detail the houses he built. He had a marvelous career. His eye for detail and demanding only the finest materials made his houses worth a lot. As the sun was setting on his working life, his boss asked him to make one more house. He didn't want to. The architect was tired and refused. After some goading, the architect reluctantly started the job. His heart wasn't in it. He chose sub-standard materials, he didn't obsess over every detail. He cut corners in order to be finished. Not his best work by far. He didn't even want to put his name on it, but alas he was done. Once finished the architect walked into his boss's office. There was a small box sitting on the table. The box was opened as a gift. Inside were the keys to the house that was just built. Immediately the architect's heart sank.
You are always building your own house. What you do, what you eat, what you say, what you think are all parts of YOUR house. Strive for excellence in EVERYTHING you do, and you will not have a wasted life. Obsess about the details of your own life. You are always building your own house.

W have LOTS of opportunity for improvement this week. On Monday we have a classic crossfit benchmark WOD. We use these benchmarks to assess where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. Make sure to record your score in ZenPlanner (or use the app!). Tuesday is a little heavier couplet of fun. Wednesday is a partner metcon with some different cardio elements thrown in on purpose. Thursday or THORSday is a pair of really fun couplets. "A couple of couplets" if you will. Friday is heavy squat cleans with a high skill gymnastic movement. Saturday is the beach WOD.

Level Explanation Check out Drew's explanation of our new levels and what to expect in class in the year to come: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3WFHAjDFeE&t=12s
CLASS SCHEDULE CHANGE! Beginning Saturday April 8th
NEW Saturday 7:30am All Levels Class. It's getting warmer and we know that many of you would like to get in and out on Saturdays. Saturdays are a great day to mix it up with a different coach, different faces, and movements you don't always get to see during the week.
Saturday 11:00 am class is now a Level 1 class (using our new level system). This class will be a mix of reviewing the basics, more in-depth skill work, and other fun segments.
Semi-Annual Check-ins - This is also a great time of year to get up with your Primary Coach for a Semi-Annual Check-in. The check in is 30-45 minutes of face to face time to review goals, strategies, homework assignments, nutrition, or whatever you need. A few of you may have been contacted about changing your primary coach to one that you will see more frequently. If you are not sure who your primary coach is please let us know.
