CF 864 Today’s schedule: 4:15p.m./5:15p.m./6:15p.m.
Day 47 of the “100 day burpee challenge”
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
– Og Mandino, 1923-1996, American Motivational Author and Speaker
CF History Clip:
Greg Glassman, a former gymnast, created the CrossFit training methodology in the 1980s. The program gained the attention of various military and law enforcement agencies. In 1995, Glassman was hired to train the Santa Cruz, CA police department. The first CrossFit gym opened in Santa Cruz in 1995. The CrossFit website, launched in 2001, now includes an extensive video library of exercise demonstrations and a very active discussion forum.
The number of CrossFit-affiliated gyms has grown from 18 in 2005 to over 1,500 in 2009, with 500 more affiliation requests pending. According to Canada’s Business News Network, CrossFit is “one of the fastest growing fitness movements on the planet.”
To all of you that pushed through the Curtis P/Burpee WOD…Good job!
“Failure is not an option”
See you Friday!
