Our six ROCK STAR NEW CFKW members!
Here we have:
Andy (friend of Dr. Jake), Rick (husband of Kate Poole), Pam (mom of Jeff Younger/Spitz), Jason (co-worker of Tyler and Jeremy M.), Ale (pronounced "Allie"), and Kaylei (sister of Fatty/Noel)
FANTASTIC group of folks! You're gonna LOVE them!
Two Down! Three to Go!
What we THINK about what we eat may affect our metabolism.
(The glare is blocking Laura Terry's score- she got 83 reps!)
Alena had no interested in moving post-WOD.
She has nice friends. :)
"The Mixed Bag!"
(Just named that as I typed it! Ha!)
For total reps:
1 minute: Overhead squats
2 minutes: Push press
3 minutes: Squat jumps over the barbell
4 minutes: Sit ups
5 minutes: Power snatches
This is actually a CFHQ WOD from years ago that we use as a benchmark.
Named it this because it was a sight to see double undering, box jumping and kettlebell swinging in our old space that was half the size of what we have now.
The name stuck.
One of MANY Things I LOVE About CFKW.
I had a conversation yesterday about the culture of CFKW, and I raved about how GOOD it feels to me every time I walk in the gym.
The "air" is clean. And positive. And warm. And welcoming. And supportive. And kind. And high-energy. And motivating. And challenging. And just how we like it.
We don't exclude.
There are no cliques.
We embrace everyone in our midst.
I love that.
A whole, whole lot.
Friendships form. People coming to the same classes each week start to bond. People start to look forward to seeing their "crew" when they sign up for classes. Athletes begin to expect to see certain people when they arrive to workout and THAT IS A GOOD THING.
A newcomer arrives or someone drops in who doesn't usually come to that class and what happens? WARMEST OF WARM WELCOMES. OF COURSE! It is a NON-ISSUE!
Everyone is part of the crew at any class. Any time of day. Any day of the week.
We are a community.
Everyone is invited to the table and included in ALL the goings-on at CrossFit Kirkwood.
The Friday night Competitors' class typically heads out afterward to hang out, grab dinner, have a few drinks. ANY AND ALL who would like to come are highly encouraged to do so! Without a doubt!
Nothing exclusive whatsoever.
On Saturdays after class, there is typically a breakfast/coffee outing and you'd better believe ANY AND ALL who would like to join in CAN and SHOULD do! The more the merrier!
Ever been to a 9:00 AM class? Coffee and chatty time post-workout is often on deck following stretching. That crew will DRAG you to Kaldis with them- they WANT ANY AND ALL to join them and they pine to get to know one another better. (They even dragged Fatty to coffee a couple of times).
Every social event we plan includes an automatic invite to every member of the gym.
Hope you feel it.
Team Mottl loves ya.
And, we're beyond glad you're here.
