Here’s a quick post on some events that are coming up. As we get closer to each event, we’ll follow up with a post with more details. This is just to get these things on your radar.
CFO Holiday Party
As I wrote in last night’s post, the holiday party is coming up. It will take place at the Hiller Highlands Country Club, the same venue as last year, and will be happening on Thursday, December 8, beginning around 6pm. And this year we’ll be gathering for more than just some holiday cheer (see last night’s post for details).
Every year toward the end of the year, we give all of you a chance to test your strength gains over the past year by running you through the CrossFit Total, which is your chance to find your 1-rep max in the back squat, shoulder press, and deadlift, in that order. There are some specific rules in terms of the order of the lifts and the number of attempts you get. Click on the link for the full-blown explanation, or just wait for a follow-up post on the thing. Whatever you do, don’t miss out on this opportunity. It’s a great time and everyone who does it loves it.
The CrossFit Total, or CFT for short, will be happening on Sunday, December 11, beginning at 2pm.
We always say goodbye to the past year with Murph, which was one of the first hero workouts of CrossFit. It’s a doozy, and you’ll never forget your first Murph experience. Read up on the format of the workout here: www.crossfit.com/cf-info/faq.html#WOD1
Because of the length of the workout, we’ll be running special 90-minute classes. This will all go down on Saturday, December 31, beginning at 8am.
