Presidents Day is not a thing 🙂 Regular schedule Monday, or MON-YAY!!!
The Open starts next week! We’re running the workout on Friday the 1st of March. Remember: the PM class is Friday night at Lynnwood it’s gonna be huge, with heats going off until we’re all done with it. Which also means that there’s NO PM CLASSES FRIDAY MARCH 1st. We’ll be judging each other (as if we don’t already) and being loud and awesome. Depending on the the workouts’ length it’ll take longer, hopefully it’s short and sweet. Remember: we don’t know the workout until Thursday night at like 5 or 6pm! So there’s really no way to plan better than what we’re doing as is. Watch games.crossfit.com for details, and plan for regular AM classes Friday, but fun times in the PM at Lynnwood if you can make it.
5k Rowing! There’s three slots, 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00. Be early to warm-up a bit, wear warm clothes, and be ready to smash it! Address up in the gym. Sunset school Park I think it’s called. Thanks Synnove!
If this sounds like you and your families’ jam, please join us! Let me know if you plan on coming, there’ll be spots on the whiteboards. We’ve got a plan carpooling and when to get there and when to start etc etc. Looks really great though!

Hey there thought I would share that I did my hydrostatic bodyfat test and which I had done four years ago when I was still doing ironmans (with same people so they still had my data) I have currently 5% less body fat and 14 more pounds of lean muscle mass! So thanks again Crossfit! Also proves not to get fixed on a certain weight.
I did something that I have not done in more than a decade. I bench pressed my body weight. I put up 250 in yesterdays class and I could have done more I think but I chose to be smart about it. Not often that you realize something you did a decade ago and haven’t done since and I couldn’t wait to tell my coach.
It’s great to be back after a winter of skiing. For the first time in four years I made it through the season with NO injuries! For me this was significant as I skied over 800,000 vertical feet this winter, in all kinds conditions, many of which were “ challenging”. After just 10 months of Crossfit I had much better stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance and coordination. Who knew, apparently skiing functions on the basis of functional movements from Core to Extremity. Now to start dialing it in for next season!
I feel at my age that there is no more time to waste. I want to get better, and stronger! The way I feel in my skin every waking minute is very important to me, the aesthetics are secondary, because if you are applying yourself that can’t help but happen. It’s the endurance, being stronger for everyday tasks.
By the way, I really appreciate your training. Today, for example, your patience helping me get low enough on the overhead squat. Working with the bar, then the pipe, then with weights, then without, and then with weights again until I finally got it. What a contrast to the super lousy trainer I had before you, but I didn’t realize how bad he was until we started training with you. He just trained me on machines and wouldn’t have me do any free weight squats, because he said I’d never get it. Way for him to inspire confidence, but also, I don’t think he had the patience or knowledge to coach the way you do. I doubt he even knew how to do Olympic lifts. So, thanks a lot! I’m really excited this next year to make lots more improvement.
Hey Jesse, I just spent three days biking the San Juans with no bike training whatsoever. My friend and I managed to bike 30+ miles of crazy island hills each day. I believe I owe it all to massive amounts of squats and regular Chi Gong conga lines.
Also, this friend of mine has always been in pretty killer shape. However, at one point we were climbing up on a lighthouse ledge that was about shoulder height. I managed to muscle my way up, she had to go to the other side where it was lower and shuffle her way along the ledge. She’s pretty jealous of CrossFit now.
After years of beating myself up with endurance training for biking, marathons and triathlons, I’m definitely in much better shape with CrossFit alone, and I can still kick some ass in the endurance sports.
Specialization is for insects.
