10-29-13 Keep Pushing

Happy Birthday Kelsey Clark

Just Anotha TABATA
8 rounds with each movement
20 sec on 10 sec rest
no rest between movements – for total reps

sit ups
front squat (95#/65#)
power clean (95#/65#)

Keep pushing.. Setbacks and disappointments will happen. Don’t ever give up… NEVER. Remember what you started. Remember why you started. The hard stuff is scary and it fills you with doubt. That’s when the work begins! It’s ok to look back and figure out what went wrong so you can fix it or just do better next time. Can’t make a lift? You will soon.. Not fast enough? You will be. Need to lose weight? It starts today with the right choices. Don’t Don’t Don’t give up… NEVER QUIT! You’ve got it…. There are plenty of people who want to see you fail but I promise there are even more who are willing to help you succeed! -AMRAP 4 Life

Our last FOUNDATIONS CLASS of 2013 will begin Monday November 4th at the NORTH LOCATION. Talk to anyone that has come through the foundations class and they will tell you that it was a great way to be introduced to CrossFit.  The goal of the class is to give new members the tools they need to easily join into our regular group classes.  If you have a friend that’s on the fence about trying or doing CrossFit, now is the time to hand them one of our $40 gift cards (they’re free for you) and get them to this last foundations class. The class will start in Nov 4th, will last for three weeks and is held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays at 7 pm.

We’re adding a few more strength sessions with Joe that are both in the afternoons.
Monday afternoons at 4 pm and 5 pm Joe will be doing a strength class at the South Location.
Tuesday afternoons at 4 pm and 5 pm Joe will be doing a strength class at the North Location.
The strength classes are offered at the same time as our regular group class. You have the choice to jump into either the strength or the CrossFit class.

Thursday October 31st our last class will be the 5:15 pm class at both locations.

MONSTER BASH is complete!

All I have to say is AMAZING.  The Guys and Gals at CrossFit BTH did a fantastic job today hosting their first event, MONSTER BASH! We all had a great time and as always it was fun to be a part and be around so many friends from the CrossFit Community.  So many great things happened this weekend….where to start.

Watching Brian, Lyndsey (pictured), Emma and Malik in their first CrossFit competition was a blast.  They all did such a great job and left their very best on the table.  They finished third in the co-ed scaled team division.

team iota south

Bailey came through with FLYING colors finishing 11th in the open women’s division and 3rd in the youth division. The best thing was she didn’t scale one workout and set a PR on her dead lift of 20#’s!


Melissa made us proud and did an amazing job in the women’s open category taking down third place!! (Sue stood in and picked up the trophies for her.) Also in the women’s open category Ronnie came in 7th, Sue came in 9th.

3rd womens open

And there where no surprises, well for us anyway, that Stephanie finishing atop the women’s masters leader board. She had a clean sweep of the event and took 1st on every workout!

steph with the win

We where also well represented in the open men’s division. Jerry took 4th, Dakotah took 9th in his first ever CrossFit event, Jacob took 13th, Habb took 18th, Thomas took 20th and Brock too 22nd. Well done boys!!

Last but not least was the Team Rx Division.  Paul, Daryl, Cerissa and Tam took first, Camile, Tausha, Chans (CrossFit Unknown) and Dayton (CrossFit Ascension) took 4th.

A HUGE thank you to Ryan and Kyle who jumped in and stepped up on the judging and volunteered their day to help out and make the event great. But best of all was having our family and friends venture up to Preston to cheer us on. It’s always fun to know we are supported by so many great people. Our community continues to grow and flourish because of each of you. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all of your support! You all play such an important role in making what we do EXCELLENT!
