Wednesday’s WOD:

1. Death by Pull Up

2. Death by Box Jumps

Post rounds completed to comments.

The ‘Death by …’ work outs are performed by starting a running clock, site and during the first minute, you must complete one rep of the given movement. During the second minute, you must complete 2 of those given movements, during minute 3, you must complete 3 of those movements in that minute. This WOD starts off slow, but then by minute 15 your rest is almost gone and you’re moving at full speed.

That’s right, information pills we’re having a P-A-R-T-Y Saturday night at the gym!

Why?

Well, it’s Kris’s 27th Birthday…and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate it than by having a cool workout (you know it’s going to be an awesome one) and then having some drinks and food after.

So, now that you’re interested and have cleared your schedule, the WOD is going to take place around 5 or so. Bring a friend, bring lots of friends, the Work Out is Free to Everyone! Come on and sweat with us…then party with us!

The party should start around 6 or 7. Bring a friend, bring lots of friends, and help us break in Kris’s 27th year with a blast, and your sweat!

What an awesome day for some CrossFit at CF North Hollywood! Our usual awesome energy in our classes was helped with some special visitors…in the 12:30 class we had some special visitors from CF Santa Clarita, dosage seek Bonnie Lynn and Brandon, approved both competed and rocked it at the SoCal CrossFit Games last month!

Then, things got even cooler when our friend Val MacKenzie (now Voboril) of CrossFit Culver City dropped in to do a WOD with us and Kris…and then another after class too! Both Kris and Val are going to the CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA this July…they’re at the top of what they do and couldn’t be more awesome! So yeah…a great day of CrossFit. 🙂

IMG_2178Less than 7 months after ACL surgery, and 4 months of CrossFit rehab (and tons of hard work), Simon is ready to get back to his stunt work again…we’re so happy that he’s been able to recover so quickly and get back to his insane day job!

IMG_2182And the cookie…group Elbow to Elbow sit ups…50 of ’em! As if the WOD wasn’t hard enough…but it’s true…we LOVE working out and we LOVE CrossFit!

IMG_2185Greg shows the evenning class warm up: 50 Knees to Elbows…if you drop, you’ve gotta run 100 meters, and then get back…I know what you’re thinking…Our Warm Up really is other people’s Work Out!

IMG_2194IMG_2206New guy Josh tells Greg that he can get that 1 extra Rep! Group classes help you push yourself to new levels…and get that one extra rep!

IMG_2200New gal Joie gets that weight up with a little vocal help from Kris!

IMG_2213Yes, it is 185#…no, I don’t know anyone else that can do that for this WOD…awesome job, Josh! Quickly becoming a fire breather!

IMG_2222Carly helps new gal Michelle keep her elbows high on the Sumo Dead Lift High Pulls!
