Back pain spending surge shows no benefit

    a2 webisodes?
    fgb? nice.

  • Ah, to hell and back again…

  • Kevin W

    Hey, Jerry Hill was my coach in VA! Nice article post…

  • And then, just in case anyone is still standing after this last week, we have a special workout planned for tomorrow where we just beat you repeatedly with a pipe.
    It can’t feel much worse than FGB after Fran, Randy and Nate.

  • Jack Bauer

    I think the Ant pretty much articulated how we all feel. Been an uphill battle all week.
    After ingesting loads of Vitamn I for my right shoulder this morning after Fran and Nate back to back, I think I will enjoy this rest day so I can be fresh for the Pipe beating WOD-and of course it will be for time using a pipe that weighs 2 pood-because that weight seems to be en vogue right now.

  • Justin

    Oooh Can’t wait to be beat with a pipe tomorrow… Certainly less painful than this week of WODs. Much needed rest day today!

  • Robzilla

    Go here:
    To vote for Bryant P from Crossfit Oahu. He’s trying out for Ninja Warriro again. Give him five stars so he can go represent on Mt. Midoriyama

    hey all,
    has anyone found a black digital watch lying around at the box anywhere? the brand is “Cateye” and it’s set to military time.

  • Coach P
  • Found. Going on Ebay. Bidding starts at $15.

  • Moon

    Josh – That is another angle we can use to get more membership. Rough ad copy follows:
    For around $200, you can get beaten with a pipe by professionals for an hour, three times a day, every day across the entire month in midtown Manhattan!
    Think about how much even a semi-professional Domme located out in Staten Island in would charge for that…

  • On a related note: PLEASE TAKE YOUR STUFF HOME WITH YOU. We have been overrun with tons of stuff here at the box. People coming in for classes have no free cubbies in which to put there stuff. We appreciate leaving things like Lifting Shoes here because where else are you going to wear them? However, leaving t-shirts, shorts and running shoes here is bit much for our little space to handle right now. We’d appreciate your hand in keeping the clutter to a minimum. Thanks in advance.

  • Moon

    Wait – so we *don’t* have a laundry service? This explains the state of my Underarmor…

  • Jeff

    The answer to your question is yes. I’m bigger than that guy and I bet I can press more overhead.

  • ChrisG

    Fight Gone Bad

  • Word, Jeff! I could kick his ass!

  • Court has requested that people show up, warm up and be ready to run heats of FGB every 20 minutes. Please try not to irritate him.

  • Jack Bauer

    Don’t make Court anger people. We wouldn’t like him when he’s angry

    Did Fran today as a makeup

    Still slower than last time and the time before that. Gotta start working on thrusters more often. I tanked on the 15 ‘s again.
    Nice work today ChrisG!
    Great job on Fran yesterday Brendan!

  • second sam

    I, for one, am shocked to discover that our lead grammarian is fallible.
    Tyler, please report to remedial 5th grade for a review of “there” vs. “their”.
    Gold star for correct usage of “where” and “wear” though.

  • marisela

    i did a modified cindy today.
    10 pull ups
    10 push ups
    10 rounds
    keith is determined to make me stronger on my upper body. Guess an injury is good for something 🙂
    i will be making an appearance at spanky’s tonight on my way to work. Not eating though, just want to say hi 🙂

  • I will be there in spirit since you all came out to celebrate with me on my Bday!! Sorry guys but my Sabbath precludes my being there. Can we try for a Sunday night once please?

  • I come on less like the Hulk and more like Frank Booth…

  • juan g.

    Courtana does get that crazy (lou ferrigno) hulk hair sometimes.

    So I made it to HQ! I went by to scout it out and caught the tale end of the Level 2 Cert. I saw Nicole and I found myself just as starstruck as I was when I first met Clooney.
    Now I have to finish up the last of the journal readings. If anyone has any messages/well-wishes I’ll gladly pass them along. Look forward to getting back in the Box next week.

  • Nice catch Sam2. I hate it when I do that. Remedial 5th grade is better than burpees.
