We had our first Nutritional Challenge, coordinated by CFNH members Laura & Leah! It has been an amazing experience, one that we’ll sure be doing more of in the future. If you would like further information on improving your diet, health, &  fitness, please visit www.paleoblocks.com.

We had our first Sunday run @ Runyon Canyon. Stay tuned for details on the next one, coming this month!

Finally, our EPIC Halloween WOD. They will be talking about it for a  while. And by they, I mean us. Now, by popular demand…more photos!

DSC00923Big day at CFNH yesterday! Our ever growing 1230 class just added 2 new athletes! What a ‘warm up’ circle!!!

DSC00926New guy Josh did a great job handling the 1.5 Pood KB!

DSC00929What in the world? CrossFit always has something new for ya! Single arm KB swings while your partner holds DB’s overhead. Good, good times.

DSC00943Yeah Buddy!

DSC00945Great job Daniel & Bryce!

DSC0094718 athletes at our Level 1 CrossFit class…and yes, we’ve got room for YOU to join us!

DSC00952Chris has been with us for almost 2 months now, and is starting to pack on some muscle as well as get Super Fit! Great job!

DSC00958How can you not get results with a class full of people working so hard? Oh, that’s right, you HAVE TO get results!

DSC00961WTF Brian, Graig, & Nicollete hoping their partners can go just a little bit faster!

DSC00964CrossFit athletes can do ANYTHING!

DSC00965Coach Tyler killed this WOD…and that’s after he set a PR of 265# on the Push Jerk! Incredible!

DSC00967New guy Wade aint so new to CrossFit. He just moved to the area, but has been training at Team CrossFit Academy for quite a while. We’re very happy to have you as a part of our Family, Wade! Welcome!

DSC00975Getting some WORK DONE!

DSC00977Yes, Cristina shows it is possible to smile and workout at high intensity!

DSC00976Josh balanced on the rope for 13 minutes. Not bad, I only got 11 minutes…

DSC00983To everyone’s delight, Coach Kris  did eventually achieve lift off.

DSC00985The wall squat…making me realize my glutes and hammies need to get stronger since January 2009.

DSC00994Lil D doing a great job coming out of the bottom on her Pause Front Squats!

DSC01003Pretty dang good Nezir! And look at those elbows…almost parallel to the ground! That’s gonna make for a big squat clean!

DSC01007New guy Nick did awesome on his first class! And how could he not with focus like that!

DSC01011So first of all, we have 2 JP’s in our gym. Second of all, they HAVE TO partner together. New Nickname Convention results:

Other than a tan, it would be hard to improve on this awesome photo of Greg getting to the top of a 225# Sumo Deadlift High Pull!

IMG_0577I wish I could say I was being clever and wanted to take a foggy photo that would resemble how unclear everything seems during the 150 Burpee WOD, but really…the battery ran out on the Gym camera and this was on the old iPhone.

Still, awesome job, Mark!

IMG_0586You too, Abraham!

See you all Thursday for something completely different!
