Hello everyone! Here is your weekly rundown of gym events:
On July 4th we will host open gym time from 8am - 10am, so stop on by to get your Crossfit on! If we don't see you - Have a happy 4th of July!
You all did an amazing job with the June running challenge so we've decided to keep the challenges coming - for July, it's WALLBALLS!!! Each week we are setting a goal for total wallballs done (wallballs done during workouts do not count). For week 1, it is 500 wallballs at 30 pounds for men and 20 pounds for women. For week 2, it's 1,000 wallballs at 30/20#. For week 3, it's 1,500 wallballs at 30/20#. (See the trend?) And for week 4, its 2,000 wallballs at 30/20#! Hit up your coach to do some wallballs with you - their contributions will count towards the total in this challenge!
And in case you are wondering what happened to the burpees you ran for in the June running challenge, you ran 158,000 m in June, meaning each of your coaches and gym owners owe you 58 burpees! This will be done on Friday after the 5 pm class and before we head over to Living the Dream for gym happy hour!
Happy Hour: Please come join us for drinks at Living the Dream this Friday, July 7th, from 6 pm-8pm! It's a time to kick back and relax with your gym community!
OLY Technique class: We will be running another 8-week Oly course starting in August. We will provide specific dates and a sign-up in the next few weeks.
Shout-Outs!!! Congrats to the last Oly technique class for all of your impressive PRs! We've enjoyed seeing your lifting maxes go up, up, UP! Also way to go Zach and Lizzie - Zach did a bar muscle-up for the first time (on his first try!) this last week and Lizzie kicked up into a handstand on the wall for the first time! Keep it up Redstonians!
