864 Strength + Conditioning – Christmas Week 2022

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. 
-Philippians 2:8-10

“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things – not the great occasions – give off the greatest glow of happiness.”
-Bob Hope

And with HIS blood mankind hath bought.

Today’s gym schedule: 5:15a.m./8:00a.m./4:15p.m./5:15p.m./6:15p.m.  – All workouts start as a group at the scheduled times.

Santa called today and said:
He’s making his list and checking it twice to see who’s cherry picking the workouts! Yes, that means that he knows who looks at the blog and decides whether they are going to come to the gym. That’s not true CrossFitting when you skip out because you don’t enjoy some part or all of the workout. I am always impressed by those who show up work hard and even more impressed by those of you that show up each day no matter whats on the board even when you hate some part of it (yep, that includes everyone) and for the ones that don’t look at the blog until after you have finished the workout…well, ya’ll are the true troopers thats all I can say! Let crush our weakness and make it our strength. Pre Workout – the goal is to arrive in time to properly warm up.

Cheaters are Losers. If you cheat one rep, one round, one pound or one second you are a cheater!
I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.

Proud of the DEDICATED 864 crew that showed up for “A Frogman’s Christmas” Hard work = Results. It’s not supposed to be easy! Excuses?

Need Christmas gifts? Check out the 864 gear at the gym. Hoodies, tees, wrist wraps, protein, FitAid, gift certificates, etc.
Make your favorite CrossFitter smile.
