110517 – Tuesday

Big week coming up at CFHV…we’ve got so much happening, and we want you all a part of it. Community Events are a huge part of what makes CrossFit High Voltage such a special place to train…and we’ve got a bunch of them coming up. Make sure you Get In The Game and are a part. Doesn’t matter if you’ve got a 2 minute Fran, or you’ve never met her. Your presence is not only what is most important to our Community, but by you coming out and bringing your energy, it creates the environment where the sum of our abilities is greater than its parts.

Didn’t know you could do that, did you?

And that’s pretty cool.

  • So, who is Greg Amundson???

  • Great job Volts & Vixens getting your 1RM squats tonight! Incredible positive energy all around the box, and it showed with 90% of you making new PR’s! Yeah Buddy! Big ups to Coach Josh for a 435# squat, Stefan with 425#, Abe for 375#, Sarah for 245#, and Emmy Vargas for a 335# squat at an all time low bodyweight! Incredible!!!
  • Also, big shout out to my CrossFittin Momma who just called me & said she PR’s at her CrossFit gym in Fresno! Yeah buddy!
  • Remember, Vixens class (ladies night!) every Tuesday at 6pm! It will meet at the front of the gym, and there will be a warm up, stretching & mobility, and a fun, sweaty metcon! Guys will be inside deadlifting & benching…

Stefan coming out of the hole with 425#!

And even though she’s squatted 487# before (no, seriously) Emmy put up 335# after doing her first 5k and at an all time adult low body weight. She’s getting fit, healthy, and if you can imagine it…even more awesome! Great work, Em!

Carlos coming up from the bottom with an almost 100# PR! Just goes to show that hard work definitely pays off!

Kaz, you guessed it, PR. I could go on and on.

We are all so proud of every Volt & Vixen’s hard work!
