Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

Who can do olympic lifts? IMG_3157Everyone…

IMG_3159Even new guy Matt learned to do this on his first day!

IMG_3171Yeah, no matter what we do, it will WORK YOU!!!

See you all Tuesday for something completely different.

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3220IMG_3224IMG_3221Lenny’s been hitting up the Thrusters a lot lately…and it shows in his improved form and work capacity!

IMG_3226Way to rock it, Padriac!!!

IMG_3234Steven coming out of the bottom of the Thruster…

IMG_3219and Carly finding the top!

IMG_3225IMG_3230IMG_3237IMG_3227New guy Matt did amazing on his first of many, many WOD’s with us!

IMG_3229IMG_3241Dinos rocked the 8pm class tonight. No matter when you drop in, there’s a group of cool people ready to sweat with you!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

IMG_3259And finish up with a little bit of L-Sit Holds…Yeah, it was another Great Night at CrossFit North Hollywood!

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

Who can do olympic lifts? IMG_3157Everyone…

IMG_3159Even new guy Matt learned to do this on his first day!

IMG_3171Yeah, no matter what we do, it will WORK YOU!!!

See you all Tuesday for something completely different.

Tuesday’s WOD:

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

Who can do olympic lifts? IMG_3157Everyone…

IMG_3159Even new guy Matt learned to do this on his first day!

IMG_3171Yeah, no matter what we do, it will WORK YOU!!!

See you all Tuesday for something completely different.

Tuesday’s WOD:

5 Rounds for Time.

7x 135/95# Thruster

15x Pull Ups

200 Meter Medicine Ball Run

Post times to comments.

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3226Way to rock it, Padriac!!!

IMG_3234Steven coming out of the bottom of the Thruster…

IMG_3219and Carly finding the top!

IMG_3225IMG_3230IMG_3237IMG_3227New guy Matt did amazing on his first of many, many WOD’s with us!

IMG_3229IMG_3241Dinos rocked the 8pm class tonight. No matter when you drop in, there’s a group of cool people ready to sweat with you!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

Secondly, for those of you that are interested in getting your CrossFit Level 1 Certification, there will be one in Huntington Beach, CA, on September 19 & 20. This is definitely the closest one that will come for a long time, and you should know by now they sell out very, very quickly. So at least put your deposit down and reserve your spot!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3220IMG_3224IMG_3221Lenny’s been hitting up the Thrusters a lot lately…and it shows in his improved form and work capacity!

IMG_3226Way to rock it, Padriac!!!

IMG_3234Steven coming out of the bottom of the Thruster…

IMG_3219and Carly finding the top!

IMG_3225IMG_3230IMG_3237IMG_3227New guy Matt did amazing on his first of many, many WOD’s with us!

IMG_3229IMG_3241Dinos rocked the 8pm class tonight. No matter when you drop in, there’s a group of cool people ready to sweat with you!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

Who can do olympic lifts? IMG_3157Everyone…

IMG_3159Even new guy Matt learned to do this on his first day!

IMG_3171Yeah, no matter what we do, it will WORK YOU!!!

See you all Tuesday for something completely different.

Tuesday’s WOD:

5 Rounds for Time.

7x 135/95# Thruster

15x Pull Ups

200 Meter Medicine Ball Run

Post times to comments.

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3220IMG_3224IMG_3221Lenny’s been hitting up the Thrusters a lot lately…and it shows in his improved form and work capacity!

IMG_3226Way to rock it, Padriac!!!

IMG_3234Steven coming out of the bottom of the Thruster…

IMG_3219and Carly finding the top!

IMG_3225IMG_3230IMG_3237IMG_3227New guy Matt did amazing on his first of many, many WOD’s with us!

IMG_3229IMG_3241Dinos rocked the 8pm class tonight. No matter when you drop in, there’s a group of cool people ready to sweat with you!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

Thirdly, starting in July we’re adding 2 more classes to the schedule. Both of these times have proved very popular, so we’re gonna give you more of what you like!

This means that we’ll have a 12:30 class every weekday, and an early evening class every weekday (either 5:30pm or 6pm).

Finally, I’ve been visiting some CrossFit gyms around the country this week. Hitting up some awesome workouts with more very cool people. On Monday I visited CrossFit Central, in Texas. They were a ton of fun, and so was the WOD. One of their members asked me if CrossFit gyms were the same everywhere I’ve gone. I told her that while each gym is a little different, the one thing that I’ve always noticed is how great every CrossFitter I’ve met was.

It’s true. Don’t belive  me? Come on in or schedule your Free 1 on 1 Personal Intro Session and find out why CrossFit is different than anything you’ve ever done before!

Thanks for all the cool photos, Adele!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!

Monday’s WOD:

Skill = Clean & Jerk.

The Work Out = The July Challenge. (Ever literally lifted a ton?!)

Take your body weight, visit web and attempt to clean and jerk that amount until the reps add up to 3000# for men, and 2000# for women.

For example, if you are a 200# male, you would try to Clean & Jerk 200# 15 times (200 x 15 = 3000). If that’s too heavy, scale it down, but the weight should still add up to 3000/2000#, you’ll just do more reps.

Congrats, now you’ve lifted a ton!

We’ve recorded everyone’s times and weights for this WOD, so now in the beginning of August we’ll try it again and see how much CrossFit North Hollywooder’s have  improved!

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3220IMG_3224IMG_3221Lenny’s been hitting up the Thrusters a lot lately…and it shows in his improved form and work capacity!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

Who can do olympic lifts? IMG_3157Everyone…

IMG_3159Even new guy Matt learned to do this on his first day!

IMG_3171Yeah, no matter what we do, it will WORK YOU!!!

See you all Tuesday for something completely different.

Tuesday’s WOD:

200 Meter Medicine Ball Run

Post times to comments.

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3220IMG_3224IMG_3221Lenny’s been hitting up the Thrusters a lot lately…and it shows in his improved form and work capacity!

IMG_3226Way to rock it, Padriac!!!

IMG_3234Steven coming out of the bottom of the Thruster…

IMG_3219and Carly finding the top!

IMG_3225IMG_3230IMG_3237IMG_3227New guy Matt did amazing on his first of many, many WOD’s with us!

IMG_3229IMG_3241Dinos rocked the 8pm class tonight. No matter when you drop in, there’s a group of cool people ready to sweat with you!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

Measuring your fitness level is an integral part of CrossFit. We’re constantly tracking your progress to make sure you reach your goals…and I think it’s working!

We’re also about to start another Saturday class. Stay tuned for details!

What’s Up CrossFit North Hollywooders (and future CFNHer’s!)?

A couple of quick announcements for you all.

First, treat and definitely most important…The 2009 CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA are coming up Saturday & Sunday July 11 & 12th.

As you all know our Head Trainer Kris is competing. She is 1 of the top 75 CrossFit women in the world competing for the title of The Fittest Woman on the Planet. In all there are 152 male and female competitors from every corner of the globe. If you’re interested in going, GO! We’re definitely going to be there, so you should too. To buy tickets to this awesome event click on the image:

CrossFit Games Widget

Secondly, for those of you that are interested in getting your CrossFit Level 1 Certification, there will be one in Huntington Beach, CA, on September 19 & 20. This is definitely the closest one that will come for a long time, and you should know by now they sell out very, very quickly. So at least put your deposit down and reserve your spot!

IMG_3336

Thirdly, starting in July we’re adding 2 more classes to the schedule. Both of these times have proved very popular, so we’re gonna give you more of what you like!

Starting Wednesday July 8 we’re adding a Wednesday @ 6pm class.

Starting Thursday July 9 we’re adding a Thursday @ 12:30pm class.

This means that we’ll have a 12:30 class every weekday, and an early evening class every weekday (either 5:30pm or 6pm).

Pretty awesome, huh! And we couldn’t have expanded to this many classes this quickly without all of your help. Thank you for all of your hard work, group encouragement during the workouts, and of course, SWEAT!

We’ve also been talking a lot about nutrition lately…check out this video from one of the top CrossFit athletes in the world, Josh Everett, about what he eats in a day. Everyone’s diet is different, and I’m sure there’s lots to learn from this incredible athlete!

[wpvideo BOtIKsQX] Thursday’s WOD:

IMG_3468Awesome job, ladies!

Finally, I’ve been visiting some CrossFit gyms around the country this week. Hitting up some awesome workouts with more very cool people. On Monday I visited CrossFit Central, in Texas. They were a ton of fun, and so was the WOD. One of their members asked me if CrossFit gyms were the same everywhere I’ve gone. I told her that while each gym is a little different, the one thing that I’ve always noticed is how great every CrossFitter I’ve met was.

It’s true. Don’t belive  me? Come on in or schedule your Free 1 on 1 Personal Intro Session and find out why CrossFit is different than anything you’ve ever done before!

Post times to comments.

Next stop, find Cirque du Soleil!

First night in, and already swinging that Kettlebell overhead like a pro!

 

Awesome job, Leah! That’s incredible!!!!! When Leah started less than 6 months ago, she was no where close to doing a pull up (sorry Leah, you know it’s true!) Now look at her! She can probably do 20 pull ups in a row…and this sweet little move!

Thanks for all the cool photos, Adele!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!

Monday’s WOD:

Skill = Clean & Jerk.

The Work Out = The July Challenge. (Ever literally lifted a ton?!)

Take your body weight, visit web and attempt to clean and jerk that amount until the reps add up to 3000# for men, and 2000# for women.

For example, if you are a 200# male, you would try to Clean & Jerk 200# 15 times (200 x 15 = 3000). If that’s too heavy, scale it down, but the weight should still add up to 3000/2000#, you’ll just do more reps.

Congrats, now you’ve lifted a ton!

We’ve recorded everyone’s times and weights for this WOD, so now in the beginning of August we’ll try it again and see how much CrossFit North Hollywooder’s have  improved!
[wpvideo Ce4KHHGN] Wednesday’s WOD:

For time.

Knees – to – Elbows
Post times to comments.

For those of you that don’t remember, we’ve started our Wednesday @ 6pm class yesterday, and today we start our Thursday @ 12:30pm class. That means we have a 12:30 class every weekday, and an early evening class every weekday! We’re growing…ready to come grow with us?

Finally, the CrossFit Games are here. Wanna check out what type of fun/pain our Head Trainer Kris is in for this weekend?
[wpvideo DgusdVpm] And just another cool video that I thought I’d share…pretty awesome!
[wpvideo 1vcnbJWq] Hey everyone…trying to relay updates as often as I can.
The quest for the 2009 Fittest Man and Woman on the Planet has begun, buy with a 7.1km steep trail run (see video below).
Our own Kris Clever came in 4th place. There are 5 events today.
Her next event is a series of 20 deadlifts, information pills starting at 185#, and going up to 375#, in 10# increments. The event starts in reverse order of your finish of event 1, so she gets some rest (not too much though).

Awesome job, Leah! That’s incredible!!!!! When Leah started less than 6 months ago, she was no where close to doing a pull up (sorry Leah, you know it’s true!) Now look at her! She can probably do 20 pull ups in a row…and this sweet little move!

Thanks for all the cool photos, Adele!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!

Monday’s WOD:

Skill = Clean & Jerk.

The Work Out = The July Challenge. (Ever literally lifted a ton?!)

Take your body weight, visit web and attempt to clean and jerk that amount until the reps add up to 3000# for men, and 2000# for women.

For example, if you are a 200# male, you would try to Clean & Jerk 200# 15 times (200 x 15 = 3000). If that’s too heavy, scale it down, but the weight should still add up to 3000/2000#, you’ll just do more reps.

Congrats, now you’ve lifted a ton!

We’ve recorded everyone’s times and weights for this WOD, so now in the beginning of August we’ll try it again and see how much CrossFit North Hollywooder’s have  improved!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

Awesome job, Leah! That’s incredible!!!!! When Leah started less than 6 months ago, she was no where close to doing a pull up (sorry Leah, you know it’s true!) Now look at her! She can probably do 20 pull ups in a row…and this sweet little move!

Thanks for all the cool photos, Adele!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!

Monday’s WOD:

Skill = Clean & Jerk.

The Work Out = The July Challenge. (Ever literally lifted a ton?!)

Take your body weight, visit web and attempt to clean and jerk that amount until the reps add up to 3000# for men, and 2000# for women.

For example, if you are a 200# male, you would try to Clean & Jerk 200# 15 times (200 x 15 = 3000). If that’s too heavy, scale it down, but the weight should still add up to 3000/2000#, you’ll just do more reps.

Congrats, now you’ve lifted a ton!

We’ve recorded everyone’s times and weights for this WOD, so now in the beginning of August we’ll try it again and see how much CrossFit North Hollywooder’s have  improved!

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

Who can do olympic lifts? IMG_3157Everyone…

IMG_3159Even new guy Matt learned to do this on his first day!

IMG_3171Yeah, no matter what we do, it will WORK YOU!!!

See you all Tuesday for something completely different.

Tuesday’s WOD:

5 Rounds for Time.

7x 135/95# Thruster

15x Pull Ups

200 Meter Medicine Ball Run

Post times to comments.

This workout was pretty hard/awesome. Plus, pharm we had an 800 meter medicine ball Indian run warm up…good times. We’re just trying to make sure that we’re not lying when we say ‘You’re Workout is Our Warm Up’!

IMG_3181Yes, check it is a warm-up. Yes, it is awesome. Yes, you can do it if you want to!

IMG_3184IMG_3187Then some Med Ball Sprints. Why? Why not!

IMG_3192Working on the bottom of the Over Head Squat…

IMG_3195And onto the Work Out!!!

IMG_3194Great job, Rachel!

IMG_3196Josh said that 135# Thrusters were too light…why not 155#! Yeah, we can accommodate that too!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

IMG_3218The ever growing 5:30 class proved just as fun!

IMG_3220IMG_3224IMG_3221Lenny’s been hitting up the Thrusters a lot lately…and it shows in his improved form and work capacity!

IMG_3226Way to rock it, Padriac!!!

IMG_3234Steven coming out of the bottom of the Thruster…

IMG_3219and Carly finding the top!

IMG_3225IMG_3230IMG_3237IMG_3227New guy Matt did amazing on his first of many, many WOD’s with us!

IMG_3229IMG_3241Dinos rocked the 8pm class tonight. No matter when you drop in, there’s a group of cool people ready to sweat with you!

IMG_3244IMG_3246We just keep going, and going, and going…IMG_3251IMG_3249IMG_3253IMG_3257Awesome post WOD flop!

IMG_3259And finish up with a little bit of L-Sit Holds…Yeah, it was another Great Night at CrossFit North Hollywood!

Secondly, for those of you that are interested in getting your CrossFit Level 1 Certification, there will be one in Huntington Beach, CA, on September 19 & 20. This is definitely the closest one that will come for a long time, and you should know by now they sell out very, very quickly. So at least put your deposit down and reserve your spot!

IMG_3336

Thirdly, starting in July we’re adding 2 more classes to the schedule. Both of these times have proved very popular, so we’re gonna give you more of what you like!

Starting Wednesday July 8 we’re adding a Wednesday @ 6pm class.

This means that we’ll have a 12:30 class every weekday, and an early evening class every weekday (either 5:30pm or 6pm).

IMG_3153I ended up doing this WOD with everyone, so there aren’t many pictures, except for this awesome Sweat Angel!

Great weekend everyone! See you all Monday for Part 2 of our Pull Up Challenge…and a new challenge!

Monday’s WOD:

1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Heavy Snatch!

This is a really awesome workout if you haven’t done it. It doesn’t appear to be much on paper (and who is writing anything on paper anymore anyways?)…but to perform the snatch properly, online aka the fastest lift in the world, prescription it takes a large combination of CrossFit’s 10 skill and fitness domains. All of that wrapped up in one explosive and powerful movement. By the end you’re wondering why you’re covered in sweat and ‘all you’ve been doing is single rep lifts’…well if ya don’t know, malady then now ya know!

IMG_3158From the ground and into the hang …IMG_3156and extend the hips and start to flip the arms over…

IMG_3164IMG_3160Then get under that bar…IMG_3170Take it to the bottom of the squat…

IMG_3174And stand it up!

IMG_3203IMG_3207Keleigh came in 1st place today in the WOD, partly because she completely got after it on the Med Ball Sprints! Great job girl, your hard work and consistency have been paying off!

IMG_3204IMG_3209Tyler partnered with Josh, so he decided to go up and hit the 155# Thruster too. You just don’t have that type off motivation when you’re on your own working out…but in here, anything is possible!

IMG_3215Great job, Simon!

IMG_3201

IMG_3217You may ask ‘Why?’ Eventually I’ll ask ‘Why Not’!

We did this workout about 2 months ago…and saw some huge improvements in the scores and new PR’s (Personal Records) everywhere.

Measuring your fitness level is an integral part of CrossFit. We’re constantly tracking your progress to make sure you reach your goals…and I think it’s working!

We’re also about to start another Saturday class. Stay tuned for details!

What’s Up CrossFit North Hollywooders (and future CFNHer’s!)?

A couple of quick announcements for you all.

First, treat and definitely most important…The 2009 CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA are coming up Saturday & Sunday July 11 & 12th.

As you all know our Head Trainer Kris is competing. She is 1 of the top 75 CrossFit women in the world competing for the title of The Fittest Woman on the Planet. In all there are 152 male and female competitors from every corner of the globe. If you’re interested in going, GO! We’re definitely going to be there, so you should too. To buy tickets to this awesome event click on the image:

CrossFit Games Widget

Secondly, for those of you that are interested in getting your CrossFit Level 1 Certification, there will be one in Huntington Beach, CA, on September 19 & 20. This is definitely the closest one that will come for a long time, and you should know by now they sell out very, very quickly. So at least put your deposit down and reserve your spot!

IMG_3336

Thirdly, starting in July we’re adding 2 more classes to the schedule. Both of these times have proved very popular, so we’re gonna give you more of what you like!

Starting Wednesday July 8 we’re adding a Wednesday @ 6pm class.

Starting Thursday July 9 we’re adding a Thursday @ 12:30pm class.

This means that we’ll have a 12:30 class every weekday, and an early evening class every weekday (either 5:30pm or 6pm).

Pretty awesome, huh! And we couldn’t have expanded to this many classes this quickly without all of your help. Thank you for all of your hard work, group encouragement during the workouts, and of course, SWEAT!

They were a ton of fun, and so was the WOD. One of their members asked me if CrossFit gyms were the same everywhere I’ve gone. I told her that while each gym is a little different, the one thing that I’ve always noticed is how great every CrossFitter I’ve met was.

It’s true. Don’t belive  me? Come on in or schedule your Free 1 on 1 Personal Intro Session and find out why CrossFit is different than anything you’ve ever done before!

Awesome job, Leah! That’s incredible!!!!! When Leah started less than 6 months ago, she was no where close to doing a pull up (sorry Leah, you know it’s true!) Now look at her! She can probably do 20 pull ups in a row…and this sweet little move!

Thanks for all the cool photos, Adele!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!

Monday’s WOD:

Skill = Clean & Jerk.

The Work Out = The July Challenge. (Ever literally lifted a ton?!)

Take your body weight, visit web and attempt to clean and jerk that amount until the reps add up to 3000# for men, and 2000# for women.

For example, if you are a 200# male, you would try to Clean & Jerk 200# 15 times (200 x 15 = 3000). If that’s too heavy, scale it down, but the weight should still add up to 3000/2000#, you’ll just do more reps.

Congrats, now you’ve lifted a ton!

We’ve recorded everyone’s times and weights for this WOD, so now in the beginning of August we’ll try it again and see how much CrossFit North Hollywooder’s have  improved!
[wpvideo Ce4KHHGN] Wednesday’s WOD:

We did this workout about 2 months ago…and saw some huge improvements in the scores and new PR’s (Personal Records) everywhere.

Measuring your fitness level is an integral part of CrossFit. We’re constantly tracking your progress to make sure you reach your goals…and I think it’s working!

What’s Up CrossFit North Hollywooders (and future CFNHer’s!)?

A couple of quick announcements for you all.

First, treat and definitely most important…The 2009 CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA are coming up Saturday & Sunday July 11 & 12th.

As you all know our Head Trainer Kris is competing. She is 1 of the top 75 CrossFit women in the world competing for the title of The Fittest Woman on the Planet. In all there are 152 male and female competitors from every corner of the globe. If you’re interested in going, GO! We’re definitely going to be there, so you should too.

Secondly, for those of you that are interested in getting your CrossFit Level 1 Certification, there will be one in Huntington Beach, CA, on September 19 & 20. This is definitely the closest one that will come for a long time, and you should know by now they sell out very, very quickly. So at least put your deposit down and reserve your spot!

Thirdly, starting in July we’re adding 2 more classes to the schedule. Both of these times have proved very popular, so we’re gonna give you more of what you like!

Starting Wednesday July 8 we’re adding a Wednesday @ 6pm class.

Starting Thursday July 9 we’re adding a Thursday @ 12:30pm class.

This means that we’ll have a 12:30 class every weekday, and an early evening class every weekday (either 5:30pm or 6pm).

Pretty awesome, huh! And we couldn’t have expanded to this many classes this quickly without all of your help. Thank you for all of your hard work, group encouragement during the workouts, and of course, SWEAT!

Finally, I’ve been visiting some CrossFit gyms around the country this week. Hitting up some awesome workouts with more very cool people. On Monday I visited CrossFit Central, in Texas. They were a ton of fun, and so was the WOD. One of their members asked me if CrossFit gyms were the same everywhere I’ve gone. I told her that while each gym is a little different, the one thing that I’ve always noticed is how great every CrossFitter I’ve met was.

It’s true. Don’t belive  me? Come on in or schedule your Free 1 on 1 Personal Intro Session and find out why CrossFit is different than anything you’ve ever done before!

Awesome job, Leah! That’s incredible!!!!! When Leah started less than 6 months ago, she was no where close to doing a pull up (sorry Leah, you know it’s true!) Now look at her! She can probably do 20 pull ups in a row…and this sweet little move!

Thanks for all the cool photos, Adele!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!

Monday’s WOD:

Skill = Clean & Jerk.

The Work Out = The July Challenge. (Ever literally lifted a ton?!)

Take your body weight, visit web and attempt to clean and jerk that amount until the reps add up to 3000# for men, and 2000# for women.

For example, if you are a 200# male, you would try to Clean & Jerk 200# 15 times (200 x 15 = 3000). If that’s too heavy, scale it down, but the weight should still add up to 3000/2000#, you’ll just do more reps.

Congrats, now you’ve lifted a ton!

We’ve recorded everyone’s times and weights for this WOD, so now in the beginning of August we’ll try it again and see how much CrossFit North Hollywooder’s have  improved!

Now keep in mind, website like this this is the elite of the elite…this event is designed to see who the Fittest people in the world are, this so it must be incredibly grueling.

We do much of the same stuff…just scaled down for most people…but the method of CrossFit is the same:
