CrossFit 864 – Today’s Schedule: NOTE new afternoon times.
9:00a.m. / 4:15p.m. / 5:15p.m. / 6:15p.m.

Effective November 1 – workouts will start every hour as listed above. All workouts will start together with a group warm-up and a review of the exercises in the WOD. With the size of the groups growing this schedule will help us keep the workouts structured and will allow us to provide proper coaching and assistance during each workout. Only one group will be training during the scheduled hour session and no other workouts will start until that group is finished. This will help us from all aspects – including safety to being able to provide enough equipment for each group.

We will provide childcare during the 5:15p.m. group only. We love children and love to see them having fun but we hate the thought of them getting hurt. As parents we know that it is really helpful to be able to bring your children to the gym with you and we ask you to help us by making sure that they stay in the designated area and not on any equipment and not in the workout area. We are not able to see everything that goes on but have been told that there have been some really close calls as children have ran past or under a heavy kettlebell or barbell. I do not know of any fitness center that allows children in the weight room. It will be no fun for any of us if a child is injured so please help us with this. Thank you!

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
-Galatians 6:7-10

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

Congrats again to all of the CrossFitters that came out and ran the 5k on Saturday! Once again, more PR’s to list on the whiteboard…gotta add another board soon. Keep pushing and we will make room for you to list them! All I can say is Hoo-rah!
Ooh-rah (also spelled Urah or Hoo-rah) is a spirited cry common to United States Marines since the mid-20th century. It is comparable to the Hooah cry used in the Army or Hooyah by the Navy SEALs. It is most commonly used to respond to a verbal greeting or as an expression of enthusiasm.
In 1953 or 1954, while on a conditioning run, former Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps John R. Massaro, while serving as company Gunnery Sergeant of 1st Amphibious Reconnaissance Battalion, simulated the “Dive” horn sound “AARUGHA!” as part of the cadence. Legend has it, he took it with him when he went to serve as an instructor at the Drill Instructor school at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. He there passed it on to the Drill Instructor students and they, in turn, passed it on to their recruits where it eventually and naturally became a part of the Recon cadence, and thereafter infiltrated Recon Marine lexicon. Over time, “AARUGHA!” morphed into the shorter, simpler “Oorah!” Today, the official Marine Corps Training Reference Manual on the history of Marine Recon is titled “AARUGHA!”
See you Monday….
Be Strong!
