110311 – Friday

  • The 1st Open Games WOD has been announced. This also means we have the 1st WOD for the Fittest in Burbank Challenge. We will be doing this at every class this Friday. There will be scaled workouts for everyone as we always do. But remember, if you’re wanting your scored to be official on the games.crossfit.com site, then you’ll need to do it As Rx’d.
  • Because we’re so excited about the upcoming Community Challenge, I’ll give anyone at our box who registers on the games.crossfit.com for our gym a Free Guest Pass for a friend, to use any time. Ok, so why haven’t you registered yet? ūüôā
  • Schedule change is in effect for this Sunday! Our New Yoga class starts at 10:30am. It is a yoga class, but it is also geared for our Volts & Vixens, based on the workouts we do each week. What better way to continue to take care of yourself! Remember, this class in included in your membership at CrossFit High Voltage. The All Levels class is now at 11:30am.

Finally, we have a couple more winners to announce. I know this one is a little late…but we have the winners for our latest Nutritional Challenge Winners!

Debbie Serpas is our winner! Congrats Deb, we are all so proud of you & your hard work!

Deb says:

“I had spent a good number of years with stomach issues.¬† Pain, bloating etc.¬† In August I was diagnosed with SIBO.¬† People have a certain amount of bacteria in their stomach I had 4 times as much as a normal person had and I was miserable.¬† My doctor tried to treat it but I was still having issues.¬† I decided to reach out to the GI Motility department at Cedars Sinai in search of the best stomach doctor.¬† I was finally able to get an appointment with him but I had to wait 3 months.

I decided to do the Paleo Challenge.  For the first time in years I felt 100% (2nd week of challenge.)  On December 3rd I finally went to see the doctor and he asked how I was feeling.  I told him that while I was in my 3rd week of the challenge I have never felt better.  He asked what Paleo was and said he was interested in reading more about it.  He also said I was curing myself.

On Friday I went back for my final test to see if the SIBO had gone away.  I got my results this morning…completely gone!!!!!

Paleo has saved my life!¬† Thank you for all the help you and the paleo team have provided.”

Paul Gomez is our male winner did an amazing job as well with a record 26 pounds lost in 5 weeks!!! Great job Paul!

Runners up Crystal and Nick for trying something new and making it work in their busy life styles!

  • 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!

Fran Friday!

That’s right Volts & Vixens…now let’s go get after it! 3…2…1…GO!!!

Sorry for the short post…we’re in Go Time Mode: Here’s some updates.
-No Barbell Class this Saturday, due to the 1st Annual PHAT Elvis High Voltage Weightlifting Open. Everyone is welcome. Potluck & BBQ at about 5pm (it should be over ‘around’ then).
-The Fittest in Burbank Challenge starts next Friday, and goes every Friday for 6 weeks. Everyone is invited to do this. It will be the exact same WOD’s at the CF Open Sectionals….and for that you can register at: games.crossfit.com. We’ve had a few of you register so far, some firebreathers, some people just looking to jump in and have a ton of fun. I mean, if you’re going to do the 6 weeks of workouts, then why not register (Kirby, also, Everyone Else)!

Oh yeah, and Fran today. I thought I’d start the excitement off for our Friday Fun this week…you know, kind of get everyone’s wheels turning and used to making Fridays even more awesome at the High Voltage Box.

Is there any other way?
