Drew's Words of Wisdom...
The Open might and often does have one or more defining moments for you as an athlete. However, the OPEN DOES NOT DEFINE you. Be confident in the skills/strengths you have developed over the last year. Use the Open as an opportunity to put yourself out there and see what happens. It is okay to be Exervous about the open. Anxiety about the unknown happens often. WE WILL NOT BE SCARED. It really doesn't matter what the workout is. Your best effort is and always will be good enough.
Here's the latest TACO Drew's Day post - Fear, Variables, and Regret
Welcome to the fit fam Zack B! And welcome back Scotty C!
SATURDAY SHOWDOWN -
The first workout, 18.1, will be announced LIVE at Games.Crossfit.com Thursday night at 8pm (of course, Drew will be watching the announcement here at the box). If you want to submit a score to the worldwide leaderboard make sure you additionally register for the Opens on the Games page and mark Crossfit Hyperformance as your team.
The theme for Week 1 is 70s baby! Come in your best (workout-able) iconic 70s attire. Our amazing ambassadors will have the playlist and decor ready to go. You bring the fun.
In order to make sure this event is a positive experience for all our athletes, please keep in mind some logistics regarding Saturday Showdown:
Heat sign up is MANDATORY. If you show up Saturday without signing up for a heat time you will be added at the end.
Heat sign up will go LIVE via a link on our Facebook page and email every Friday at 12 NOON. Times are first come first serve.
Athletes need to arrive 30 minutes before their heat time to check in. You will meet with that heat's coach and everyone in that heat will warm-up together and complete a final brief before the heat starts.
Please do not park on 70th St. You can utilize other side streets, the parking lot, and neighboring lots, but do not park on 70th.
Please only bring in necessary gear. There will not be room for large gym bags.
PARENTS WITH KIDS - If you choose to bring kids with you, they need to be under YOUR direct supervision (line of sight) for the entire event. Please delegate another athlete, friend, or family member to be responsible for your kid or kids while you warmup and workout. Just being in the office is not sufficient. No kids will be allowed to touch ANY equipment during the event, except for kids participating in the kids class at 10:15 and only during that time. Prior to and immediately following the kids class, parents are responsible for their children. The cost of participating in the kids class during Saturday Showdown is the same as a regular kids class, $10 per visit or $100 for 10, or included in the family membership. The minimum age for crossfit kids is 1st grade.
Athletes are asked to be willing to judge in a heat before or after your own. The online judges course through games.crossfit.com is not required, however it is open to any athlete that would like to take it. If you print out your certificate we will put it on the wall and utilize you more if you love to judge :)
If you know in advance that you are unable to make any heat times on Saturday you may arrange a time on either Friday or Monday with any of the coaches to judge your workout. This must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance. Warm up is on your own, be prepared to start the workout at the time you've arranged. If you want more in depth warm-up, strategy, or skill work before the workout, then this should be scheduled as a private coaching session so we can compensate the coach for their time accordingly.
Fridays are regular class days and will include some skill work and strategy. It's a good plan to come in and move around and sweat the day before.
New Athletes - This 5 week event is Open to ALL Hyperformance Athletes. Each Saturday (except St. Pats) we will do the Crossfit Games Open Workout. There is an Rx, Scaled, and Masters divisions. Whether you submit scores to the Games website is up to you, but we encourage every HPA athlete to get in the game and participate. Registration is still open, even the the T-shirt deadline is past and costs $25. We need volunteers too - and if you prefer to be involved that way please let Caleigh know.
Check out Coach Caleigh's post from last week with the Lowdown on the Showdown. Caleigh explains why we've chosen to switch things ups this year to Saturdays, the kids heat, and what to do if you absolutely can't make any of the heat times on Saturday.

First FRIDAY Friend Fest
Since the gym will be rock'n with Showdown on Saturday we've moved First Saturday Friend Fest to Friday March 2st. It's a great way to get co-workers out of the office on Friday! ALL Classes are open for friends, please let them know they need to arrive at least 10 minutes early to fill out a waiver and meet the coach!
Here the shareable facebook event page.
Rise Of The Masters - https://www.facebook.com/events/169288820501691/
Is happening at Crossfit Boro on April 14th. We already have a handful of athletes registered. The divisions are ages 40-47 and 47+, both Rx and Scaled. We'd love to see ALL our athletes participate or be there showing support. There will only be one class at 7:30 that day.
Welcome to the Open. Saturday Showdown is upon us.
Monday- we will do an open tester based off of last year's 55s WOD. Deadlift, Wall Ball, Row cals, and HSPU.
Tuesday- we have some team work. AAB, double unders, and pull-up/muscle-up work.
Wednesday- we have a classic crossfit workout... Elizabeth. 21-15-9 power cleans and ring dips.
Thursday- Open WOD 18.1 gets released tonight at 8pm. Our focus is going to be more aerobic with a version of the Hero WOD "Michael". Running, Sit-ups, and hip extensions.
Friday- Today is a Pre Saturday Showdown run through. The movement will be simple, but we still want the intensity to be high. This is also a practice session for any skill that may give you trouble on Saturday.
Nighttime Recovery is back in circulation and will be making a re-appearance later this week. This products helps with sleep quality by allowing your body to get into a deeper stage where many recovery processes occur. Wake up ready to tackle 18.1! Read more here.
