NUTRITION TIP of the DAY: The 80/20 Principal by: Marks Daily Apple – If you attended the nutrition seminar last weekend, this will be a familiar principal. This link will provide additional information on this concept.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Julie Smith!!! Julie has been coming to our box in the afternoons for a few months now (she’ll be doing her Rookie again soon, so stay tuned!!) and we enjoy having her at our box. We also enjoy having our good friend and her husband Big Steve drop in for a WOD every so often with Coach Brett.

“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.”
– Soren Kierkegaard
This week was a great one. It started with a simple story from Trenna, one of our newest members. She told me that she was able to climb onto a chair get something out of the cupboard and get back down…what’s the big deal you ask? She was able to do this without the assistance of her husband and she didn’t have to hold onto the chair either. This was not within her capacity a few weeks ago. This is evidence to her and I, that CrossFit does work and it is for everyone. It’s these little things that make life better, that’s why we CrossFit, to make our every day life better.
Congratulations to Tyler Roberts for placing 21st overall with a time of 15:56 at the Murray Invitational, Utah’s premier High School Cross Country event, which saw 61 schools from Utah compete. A big shout out too to the SVCC Team who came in 5th overall. Especially exciting is they beat all of the teams in the region, so they are on track for a region championship. Keep up he great work.
This picture says it all! Nicely done Brock!
Congratulations to Brandi Bastain for completing the LOTOJA! This was here first time doing this ride solo and we are proud of her for completing this cycling event.
Tammy Call has been with us for just over two month and she completed two rounds of the “Rookie” workout. I just had to take this picture as this is NOT Tammy’s regular post wod position…you can see from a picture of the board below that Tammy gave it her best and has made a quantifiable improvement! Well done Tammy!
I received this message from Mike Newswander and thought you’d all like to see this…
I pulled up my numbers from a Tabata workout that we did on June 4:
Pull-Up 49 / Push-Up 59 / Sit-Up 46 / Squat 76 – TOTAL 230
Here are my numbers from today:
Push-Up 84 / KBS 80 / Sit-Up 98 / Row 54 – TOTAL 316
That’s almost 1 1/2 times more push-ups and more that 2 times more sit-ups in the 4 minutes. More hard data that CrossFit works! Thanks – Mike (I’d just like to add it you’re not keeping a log or journal of your WOD’s like Mike is, you may want to…It’s pretty satisfying to see improvement. Numbers just don’t lie.)
Saturdays nutrition seminar was great. Thank you all for attending and increasing your knowledge. A few quick tips from the discussion.
1) Make your eating decisions at the grocery store, not in the house. If you purchase foods that aren’t the best choice, you’ll eat them. Start by not having them in your house, that will make things a lot easier.
2) Shop on the outside of he grocery store (the bakery doesn’t count 🙂 )… Meats and Vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds, little starch and NO SUGAR. Another tip along the same lines is eating foods that don’t have labels.
3) Make permanent changes. This isn’t the “biggest looser”, “weight loss challenge of the month club” or “let’s eat good for a month and see how we look game”, this is real life. Take small steps that you can live with, make reasonable changes and realize that you can do better one day at a time. Don’t overwhelm yourself with too much, just pick one thing a month and work on it.
Together we pause to remember the victims, grieve with families and friends, and honor the heroes who have sacrificed to save lives and serve their country. Tomorrow we will remember Sept 11, 2001 by doing a Hero WOD called Murph. Anyone from Cache Valley is welcome to come join us for the WOD at 7 am and the free nutrition seminar at 8:30 am.
In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it ‘Body Armor.’ From here on it will be referred to as ‘Murph’ in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it. Don’t forget, the workouts are always scaleable and if it looks to hard, click here.
QUESTION of the DAY: What’s your motivation to come to CrossFit each day? And, once you answer that, what’s your motivation to continue moving through the workouts, especially something like “Murph”? or Does a workout like this just simply keep you away?
