WOD for Tuesday 6-23-15. Equipment for sale. The new treadmill. And a small favor to ask.June 23, 2015
Interval Tuesday. Both genders will go 5 rounds of 2 on, 4 off for max calories. Men c2 row, women Airdyne. These workouts will recur, so please record your scores.
We are selling some equipment. I will post on Craigslist shortly but if you are interested in any of the following items, please let me know. I am in need of floor space and/or different stuff and practically giving this stuff away.
Most notably our big white safety squat rack. That thing is SOLID, and will catch any bar you drop onto it. Perfectly functional. It’s one flaw is that the safety bars do not adjust their height. $100.
Our Blue Rope. We’ve replaced it with additional manilla and cotton ropes. I think it’s 50 feet long. It’s nylon and therefore waterproof. Should last forever, indoors or out. $50.
Our older jump boxes. All sizes and styles (square or pyramids) $20 each.
Some of our Metal Weights. $20 per plate for any of the 45/35/25s.
Against the WOD scoreboard you will notice a new treadmill. This thing is an ass kicking, super posh Nordic-Trac incline trainer. It inclines from a ridiculous 40 degree to minus 6. As you may know, our member Rick C. is a Spartan Trifecta Medal winner and training for something called the Spartan Beast in September. Rick took it upon himself to purchase the Nordic Track and has graciously allowed us to access it for the time being as he stores it at the gym. Please see me for basic info on how to use it.
This latest treadmill joins our growing collection of fitness pieces that I urge you all to play around with. The ski-erg, the battle ropes, the slam balls are rarely programmed but all have their place. If there’s ever equipment you’re unfamiliar with, pull me aside and I’m happy to show you how you might use it.
We’ve picked up a fifth airdyne, just in time for today’s interval set.
Lastly, a small favor. Since our move to 5651 CBR there’s a decent amount of new people. Also, we”re in prime tourist season, the combination of which makes for a lot of unfamiliar faces. Please join me in saying hello to people you may not know. I try to introduce people at the beginning of a class with words like “This is Norbert, guesting with us from South Dakota” or “This is Myrtle. Brand new to CrossFit, please make her feel welcome” but sometimes I forget who knows or doesnt know who. I see people who have been around for a couple of months kind of come in,warmup, do the wod, record their scores and leave, all without ever interacting much with anyone. Now that may be their fault, they may be a “troubled loner” beyond society’s help, but please do give them a nod and a smile at least. CrossFit is scary enough even surrounded by friends.
