New class open at 6:00am every Thursday!
With the nice weather tomorrow, we may get outside a bit…..hint hint
3 Rounds:
500m Row
10 Deadlifts (bodyweight)
10 Ring Dips
A note from our beloved Jen M. (aka Jen-Jen, Professor Jen) who is traveling in Amsterdam for the month of February:
“23.80 EURO for a train ticket…
Four hours round trip train ride…
Getting to a crossfit gym, making new friends, getting to dead lift, and setting a PR – PRICELESS!!
(At least I think it’s a PR – 107.5 kilos, which converts to 237 lbs. You’ll have to check for me…)  I did and it was a PR by 2lbs!
So hi! Miss me? Well, I miss you guys. I’m having fun over here, and it’s a great experience, but do miss everybody and getting in for the workouts. I’m doing pretty good working out with body weight stuff, bike every day, and the food is good. Today was the first day I’ve had a chance to make the trip to the crossfit gym. The trainer is great – energetic, encouraging, qualified, very nice (hmmmm, reminds me of other trainers I know!!). He’s a Level 2, and apparently does a lot of the Level 1 certs across Europe. The gym is in a garage, and the minute I walked in, I knew I was in the right place, i.e. kettlebells, 24″ boxes, rings, etc. 😉 You should have seen this one guy – apparently he’s a marine with the Dutch force. Deadlifted close to 600 lbs – it was phenomenal to watch.
Hope things are well with you! Tell everybody I said “hi”.
Miss you Jen!  Be sure to leave a comment for her below.
