110309 – Wednesday

  • What a fun day of training yesterday! We don’t do max height box jump tests that often, but when we do, it’s always a blast. So many big hurdles conquered yesterday. From athletes improving on already beastly box jump heights to many people finally getting the confidence to jump up on the big box! This is the type of thing that happens when you have an environment that fosters you being your best, and a Community that is truly happy when you smash through your goals.
  • Speaking of big jumps…I’m still working with the Flip Video Camera that Carly got me…so it’ll be a second until I can upload some of the awesome jumps. But, in the meantime, some of the great jumps I can remember off head: I think Kirby & Charissa were about 42″, just incredible…Keven & Eugene got 49″, Nick Sr got 51″, Timm Kimoto got 53″, Steven was at 53 1/2″ and Coach Jade couldn’t have been happier nailing a PR of 54″. I’ll check the sheet for all the totals later, but like I said, great, great day of training!
  • Finally….The CF Games Open Registration website it open! Go get your registration on!

We’re registered as a gym to host the workouts: https://games.crossfit.com/affiliates/crossfit-high-voltage

You need to go there right now and register at games.crossfit.com. Register as an athlete, and then select CFHV as your gym. Then, every Friday for 6 weeks, come out at 6pm, do the WOD with the rest of the gym, and we’ll certify your score. Sounds great, right. I’d like to have 20 people from our box register to do this on the official site. This is my challenge to you. Remember, this stuff is for everyone, so be a part of the party! We’ll be doing our ‘Fittest in Burbank’ challenge along with the Open Sectionals. Same deal, just show up, do the wod’s, and whoever has the best scores after the 6 weeks will get a really cool title!
