Workout of the Day

2309, 2018

I am very excited to announce that there will be another coach coming on to the team!  Please help me in welcoming Rene B to the coaching crew.  Rene was a skilled and competitive athlete when he came to us just about a year ago.  Rene immediately took to our community and almost overnight became  a fixture at 38 North.  Over the last couple months it has been top ignore just how good a fit Rene would be as a coach.  I have seen him positively and effectively give tips to a number of athletes.  Rene  has such an easy going feel to his personality, that the way he gives this instruction always yields positive results.  Rene will be observing and helping us with coaching in the upcoming weeks taking on a class of his own after he passes the CrossFit Level One Certification.  If you see Rene please give him a warm welcome to the coaching team!  B Day shout out to Kristen S tonight!  Kristen is a founding member of 38 North and almost 7 years later she is still walking though our doors every week.  Kristen always brings in a fun positive energy to this community.  The thing I love the most about Kristen is that she never takes the sport or herself to seriously.  Kristen has always come in to get a good workout and be around good people, and these two goals are always achieved.  If there was a Box mom, Kristen would be it.  I don’t think anyone in the box has hosted more get togethers then the Spears, and Kristen is as good as a host as you can find.  It has been great having you around these last 7 years Kristen, thank you for being you!  Tomorrow is the retest for Back Squat.  Don’t kill your legs before the last two reps!  Be smart in the warm up and 1 reps, I will provide a suggested route to take to get the most out of your PR attempt.  Have fun and note a PR next to your name if you hit one!

102% (PR)

A big B Day shout out to Coach Kyle!  The energy and vibe this guy brings to a class is one of a kind.  From the day Kyle walked through our doors he has always brought the energy up of everyone that surrounded him.  You can’t find Coach Kyle in a bad mood, and energy like this is infectious.  As an athlete Kyle’s transformation was unreal.  Within the first 6 months I think Kyle dropped about 25 pounds.  Kyle always had a natural strength but his skill movements and motor capacity followed closely behind.  Kyle quickly became one of our most competitive athletes.  As a coach, Kyle brings his energy and knowledge into every one of his classes.  You won’t find a better work ethic then what this young man possesses.  It has been an amazing ride having you in this community as a coach and athlete Kyle Happy B Day!  Great classes all day.  That 5:15am class was huge this morning.  Big snatch improvement by John G, Lain, and Brian F tonight.  Got some sprints tomorrow, the faster you go the more rest you get! Have fun

B Day shout out to Marco tonight!  To say this guy has progressed since his first day would be an understatement.  When Marco first came to us he struggled with even our shorter motor WOD’s.  Two years later those days are far behind him.  Besides Marco’s motor increases he also has improved on every strength across the board.  Squat, snatch, clean,  and overhead strength have all jumped.  I will also put this guys assault sprint next to anyone’s in the box.  Marco hit 28 cals in 25 sec 3 weeks ago!  Marco bring it in the gym and as we all know brings it at an social event he chooses to attend.  It has been a blast having Marco a part of this community and I look forward to many more years of this guy being a part of our community!  Happy B Day Marco!  Squats lookd good again I am excited to see the retest next week.  Big effort on that WOD to, I didn’t see any of those bar’s being put down before the minute was up.  See you tomorrow.
