Good Morning CFTP,

First of all, congratulations for the completion of Hero Week! It was one tough WOD after another focused on heroes that gave their lives for our freedoms and our safety. Thank you for commemorating such amazing individuals.

This week starts yet another week of challenges. This week we will be back to our regular scheduled program and working more towards our goals ahead. I need to know who is up for the upcoming WODsomniac and Tuff Stuff Event (if Tuff Stuff ends up happening…). The sooner I know who is interested the sooner we can get you all put into teams that will find the most success in the events. Also the sooner we get you put into teams the sooner you all can schedule your workouts so you are working together and get to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

I am so grateful for the diversity we have at our gym. I love that when you have a strength then you share with your teammates and when you have a weakness you are willing to learn from one another. It is important to realize that we are not all going to be great at everything and it is important to understand when it is time to listen and time to teach. You all help each other out so much it makes for a very positive hour of work everyday. So thank you for that.

I also want to thank you for referring your friends. Thank you for sharing what has proven to change your life to those around you. Think back and ponder on how your life was before CrossFit. Could you imagine if you were still living that lifestyle? Now think about all those friends and family members of yours who are living that lifestyle because they don’t know there is something better. Share what you love. Bring them in for a free class and let them experience what you have experienced.

Once again, great work on this past Hero Week. I hope you had a restful weekend and that you are ready once again to work towards those upcoming events.

Here is the message from our Nutritionist Amy for this week (all you challengers should have received this same email):

Hey Challengers!

You made it through week 2 and many of you completed all 20,000 meters of rowing for the extra challenge. Congratulations!
This week’s extra challenge requires no extra equipment. So if you’re traveling, you don’t need a gym nearby. However, it’s not much easier than last week. For Week 3’s extra challenge you can have NO SODA, SUGAR, OR ALCOHOL. That includes diet soda, sugar free energy drinks and light beers. 🙂
Attached is an 11 block meal plan for you ladies. I’ll be working on a 14 block meal plan for next week 🙂 (If you didn’t receive this email and you are part of the challenge then email Amy at xfitnutrition@gmail.com)
Also…I’ll be going to CFTP early on Tuesday (probably around 8-8:30am) ish to key in the scores in a spreadsheet up to this point. I made a promise we would know who the winner was, so I’m going to keep on top of the points!
Have a great week!

Keep up the good work!

Coach Dan
