Fab 40!

For those of you who don’t already know, Theresa turned 40 yesterday. Theresa’s a model of consistency, hard work, and positive attitude. She’s worked for–and achieved–awesome results (multiple kipping pull-ups, dead-hang pull-ups, bar muscle-ups, etc.) in the few months she’s been here.

The only problem with Theresa’s stellar gains in fitness is that she’s really gonna have to come up with something special now for her 41st birthday (can you say ring muscle-ups or bodyweight overhead squat?).

Theresa and Jacques are going to be doing the Filthy 40 during the 7pm class this Friday night. Let’s have as many people join them as possible (either at 7pm or throughout the day).

Filthy Forty:

400M Run
40 Double-Unders
40 V-Ups
40 Burpees
40 Kangies
40 Push-Ups
40 Squats
40 Vertical Jump
40 Double-Unders
400M Run

Post to comments birthday wishes and congratulations for our very own Theresa T!

    Happy Birthday Theresa!

    Remember, 40 is the new 30. (that’s what this 41yo believes!)

    Whoohoo! Happy Birthday Theresa. You are so hot!

    One time I saw you work through a painful and frustrating workout. You were gasing bad- you did not give up, you kept going, you were inspirational! You told me that it was day 6 of CF for you that week- I thought to myself, “now there’s a junkie!”

    ROck ON!

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes and kind words. I want to thank Crossfit Oakland for creating such an amazing environment – its positive, supportive, fun and simply stated – it works! I have had the pleasure of meeting so many great people and have enjoyed experiencing the pleasures (and pain) of Crossfit with them. I want to give a big THANK YOU to Crossfit Coach Extrardinaire Mike Minium – for all of your support and encouragement – always pushing me to give you one more, and then another, and another and another! Here’s to many more years of Crossfitting! See you all tomorrow night!
