Spring is here folks, and with it is the decrease in Covid cases! Just this past week our governor released the news that mask mandates may be lifted for all who are vaccinated. Businesses have the right to uphold all mask policies and CFH/SFBC stands with whatever the department of health suggests is best. If you are vaccinated, you don’t have to wear your mask if you don’t want to, but if you are not vaccinated, we request that you keep yours on (while you are not actively exercising).
Let me give a big congrats to TEAM HAMMER for winning the CFH 2021 CrossFit Open in-house tournament! Those winners are: Ahmad Salman, Ariana Correa, Brendan Laumer, Chris Damerel, Dina Razinkova, Jen Dayton, Justin Carpenter, Justin Rowling, Kate Carpenter, Katelyn Dickerson, Kaylee Lamper, Kayla Gibbs, Leah Soboleski, Lindsay Fairbanks, Michael O’Fallon, Natalie Vogel, Renee Hartzog, and Ryan Williams.
On top of that great news, we have TEN more congrats to go out … Eli, Brendan, Jake, Alex, Kate, Megan, Maria, and Chelsea are officially in the top 10% of all CrossFitters in North America! Masters athletes Dixie and Warren are in the top 10% of North American CrossFitters in their respective age groups! Top 10%!! That is huge! I am so proud of them and beyond excited that they represent CrossFit Harrisonburg!
I know there’s nothing more frustrating than participating in the CrossFit Open to realize where your weaknesses lie, and I think we’re all in the same boat here when it comes to wanting to be a better athlete! Thanks to everyone who filled out the 2-question survey, we now have a game plan for moving forward.
As you’ve seen with the pull-up course, we’ll be offering 6 and 8 week courses – 30 minute classes that meet three times a week – that will be designed specifically for helping you meet your goals. These sessions will meet every M/W/F from 5:30-6pm. Our next session – expected to start towards the middle of summer – is going to be our Bar Muscle Up Session.
The Pull-Up course is currently underway and is going very well! Already I’m seeing strength improvements in each of the athletes who’ve signed up. If you missed out on the course but you want to take advantage of all it has to offer, you can still grab the programming here and complete the workouts on your own: 8-Week Pull-Up Course.
We brought back the FitAid Fridge! Currently, the fitaid fridge is in the office and you can purchase fit-aids under the “Store” app on either iPad kiosk. FitAids are $3 and you should definitely try them all to figure out your favorite. My favorite flavor is the orange immunity boost, but I love the “Focus Aid” as an amazing pre-workout drink.
Due to the request of some of our members, we’ve affiliated with Driven Nutrition supplements! Currently we have some protein, pre-workout, and BCAA samples available for you to try in the office. If you love their products (and so far, everything I’ve tried is pretty awesome), you can use THIS LINK TO ORDER so that CFH earns 30% commission on all products you purchase!! And all the profit we make on these orders will go straight into our equipment fund! We only need about 60 tubs of protein ordered before we can buy another ski erg for the gym! 😉
NEW BABY in the HOUSE!
New baby alert! If you haven’t already, make sure to congratulate Drake Cary and his wife on the birth of their baby girl! She is already eight weeks old!
