Happy Long Weekend!

Hi all,

Box is closed today. We are open Saturday for 8 and 9am sessions.

I am up at the Hunter Valley this weekend for a friend's wedding. It's been a long time since Nat and I have been away together and I am very excited....but not so excited that I will get carried away like I did in New York (aka Benson Harlem Sengchanh, our 5th and last baby hehe).

The first thing I googled about the Hunter Valley was whether or not there is a gym at the hotel we are staying. Ah yep, why did I even do that? CrossFit has become  more than just another crazy workout, the gym that I go to, the box that Keith and I run, a place to hide from my kids - CrossFit has become my lifestyle. I am conscious everyday of trying to stay healthy and strong. It's a liberating feeling. I hope CrossFit translates the same way into your life.

Stay safe everyone!

cheers,
Virakone

Handstands

Hi all,

CrossFit is about a life-long journey dedicated to being as fit and strong as we can be; until the day we die.
So if you want to enjoy your CrossFit experience take a long term view. Consider the daily workouts as they way the ought to be viewed - another small step forward. From this perspective you will be more considerate about the intensity of your daily workout activities, the food you eat (and the food you don't), the rest you need; how to treat your body; and how to respect others.



Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 mins:

10 Strict Handstand push-ups
20 Strict Pull-ups
30 Pistols
