Hello everyone!

Had some great feedback today again from a few people about reading this blog. I had no idea people actually even read these posts, let alone took them seriously. I figured most people scrolled through the rambling to get right to the workout. It may seem simple, but I do feel proud for this. I want to throw it out to you now and if you need to share anything with the larger group or if you would like to have me write about any topic please send me a note or a message and I will address it as much as I can.

There will be a trial class going on next Tuesday, August 27th at 630pm at 782 Athletics in Stratford. This is for people who are interested in getting started over there as soon as possible. It is for all ages from teens to seniors so if you know anyone interested in checking it out please tell them to come by!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILLARY!

Hello everyone.

Hope you are all having a fantastic day.

For those of you who have seen me I’ll give you an update on what happened. Playing Tips (frisbee game, look er up) on Saturday and planted my foot to go for the catch and the foot went one way, the knee the other way and the rest of my body went into a back bend. I knew something wasn’t quite right as soon as it happened and now I will be in a walking boot for a few weeks. Such is life. I’d rather be moving and active and playing sports and take this chance than sitting on my butt watching life pass me by. Gives me a chance to test out all that #attitudegratitudefortitude during a time of adversity. I’ll just get huge shoulders and a six pack I guess. Thanks for everyone’s concern this week. Keep on keepin’ on!

Shirts should be in shortly.

Also stay alert for our CrossFit 101 sessions starting in the fall as well as a few free trial classes coming up over the next couple of weeks.

Next week we will start shifting our comp class to a real focus on benchmark workouts as well as learning to compete, a skill in itself, and to focus right in on our lifts.

Hello, Hello!

Thank you to all those who came out to our annual 782 Summer Social. For those who missed it, we missed you for sure and can’t wait to catch up as always at the gym as we enjoy the rest of the summer. It was an afternoon of yard games, a few laughs, lots of good food and drink, and some amazing people!

Our shirt order should be in sometime by the end of the week and we will be looking at making another plan for our fall and winter apparel after that. We ordered extra shirts and hoodies if you missed out on the order the first time around.

MotionBall is coming up in September, Saturday, September 14th to be exact. We have been asked this year to be a corporate sponsor and will be looking to raise $1500 to support this amazing cause. You can use this link here below to donate.

Hello all.

The weekend is upon us and we have some big news!

Hope you are excited to get in some running over the fall with Mike P. and add a different element to your training. These sessions will be open to all 782 members.

Had a rough day of training yesterday. Things didn’t feel great. Hands were sore. Shoulders were tight. Knees were cranky. Mind wanted to give up. But I didn’t. The days that everything feels good it is easy to push and it is easy to complete the tasks at hand. Those days are days to celebrate our character and our fitness. Days like yesterday are what builds character. It is not always going to be easy, in life and in the gym, but it will be our attitude towards these days that push us forward if we choose to accept them instead of letting them roll all over us. Hope this helps anyone who has ever had a rough day of training or life, as I am sure this is everyone!

We also have brilliant news about a comp classes. We will be bringing back the Saturday afternoon comp classes, time to be determined, to go along with the Wednesday evening comp classes. The focus of these classes will shift ever so slightly. We will be working on one of the Olympic LIfts on Wednesday evening and the other Olympic Lift on Saturday afternoon. We will also be programming a benchmark workout for each class and will be treating these workouts like a comp event. The programming for the comp classes will be released Sunday for the week and even if you can not make it to the classes, but want to compete you are expected to find some time in your week during open gym to hit the Oly work and complete the benchmark workouts sometime between Monday and Sunday. We will create a document on 782 where people can post their scores. These workouts are to be done on top of our regular training if you are interested in competing. We will be opening up these workouts to the general population around the maritimes too to compare scores.

CrossFit - 6/9/12/430/530

Conditioning

12min EMOM - 3 Rounds

0: 200/150/100m Run

1: ME Burpees

2: ME Row/Bike/Ski for cals

3: Rest

Somewhere to push here. We will divide you into 4 teams and have you get after it. Push hard on each. Scale the run so that you can come in around the 50 second mark and get right after those burpees.

Team Work makes the Dream Work

D-Town WOD 3 - 4 Rounds with a team of 4 (2 rounds for each pair)

100 DU’s/150 SU’s/60secs DU practice (split) or 50 DU’s with the heavy rope

15 Synchro Double DB Snatches (50/35) (35/20) (20/15-)

12 Synchro T2B

9 Synchro Burpee Box Jump Overs (30/24) (24/20) (20/12)

15min Cap (10min cap at the comp)

Let’s do this thing!

Grab a team of 4 and send out two partners at first and then the next two partners once they complete a full round. Do 2 rounds per pair. This is just going to be a push each round with a lot of communication between you and your partner and your team. Things we all love at 782

Thursday, Let’s Go!

We have a few announcements to go forward with today that I am super excited about leading into the fall.

We are going to be adding a running coach into the mix at CrossFit 782. Mike Peterson, who currently coaches the Colonel Gray and UPEI cross country teams, will be joining the 782 team and will be offering running clinics and classes year round 2-3 times per month. I have worked with Mike for the past 8 months doing some strength and conditioning with his athletes and I can’t wait to see what he can do with our athletes and our conditioning, running capacity, and technique. Details will be coming out next week for his first clinic here at 782 and these programs will be included in your 782 membership.

Shirts are ordered and will be here hopefully next week.

We will be starting to customize some clothing over the next weeks. Chat with us about details and how to get started with this. And let us know what other gear/clothing you would like ordered with our new patches!
