Dear Grassroots CrossFitters,
Here are the latest updates going on at the gym! Please feel free to contact us for more details on any of the following news.
ON-RAMP FOR BEGINNERS : Now that class sizes are growing, we will be putting new members through a beginners’ course to learn the basic movements of CrossFit. If you know someone who would like to start CrossFit, tell them about the on-ramp, and get a $25 credit to your account when they sign up. On-Ramp begins in November and costs $99 for six sessions.
SCHEDULE UPDATES: In November, evening classes will return to 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm. We are adding in scheduled open gym times for those who want to make up a wod, practice skills, do extra strength work or get help on technique. Open Gym Times: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7am, and Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 6pm. When applicable, on-ramp classes will have priority on equipment during these times—please work around these groups.
PALEO CHALLENGE UPDATES: We had a great time at the Paleo Potluck. If you haven’t already done so, please post or send us your recipes. The challenge ends October 28th, so for those of you participating, stay strong and good luck! We’ll host another event soon after the end of the challenge for people to share recipes and results!
SPOTIFY: We are signed up for Spotify Premium—if you have Spotify playlists that you’d like to share with us to play at the gym, please ”friend” Kris on facebook and let him know the name of the playlist to add.
ROLLER DERBY: Come cheer on Kelly at her roller derby bout on Friday, November 9th! Doors open at 7:30 pm, game starts at 8. Tickets are $10 pre-sale (http://peninsularollergirls.org/tickets) and $12 at the door. 6pm WOD will be cancelled so we can head out to see Kelly kick butt in Redwood City. If you can make it or want to carpool with us, please let us know.
GORUCK CHALLENGE: A few of us are considering signing up for the GORUCK Challenge, a team event from 8-10 hours that consists of several difficult challenges throughout the city of San Francisco on March 9th. If you are interested in an unforgettable experience, check out www.goruck.com and click on the events page for details. CrossFitters get a $20 discount.
Thank you for another great month of getting stronger, faster, and healthier together!
Melissa and Kris
