Just on posting for the last couple of days and see this coming up. Would be good news except I'm still a couple of days behind and its Linda tomorrow.
I'm moving to Toronto... I heard rumors about one opening on the Canadian East coast.. is this true?
A bunch of familiar faces in that video.
I spent alot of time sweating in the gym. 6 months to be exact....
Fran is so hot, more videos please
CrossFit Toronto looks like a real beauty.
Now that's a nice firehouse put to good use. At least it looks like an old firehouse to me.
Excellent statement Coach!
I'm a really good rester.
That video was awesome... Can't wait until Coach and staff make out here to Korea....
Man, how awesome is that video clip?! Watching that young kid and asian/polynesian gal just banging out those thrusters!?! With 45's on each side!! Holy Crap. Now that's a testimonial (about the power of this program). I was so motivated watching it, I thought about skipping my rest day. Knowing what might be coming tomorrow, however, I'll just re-watch that clip before tomorrow's WOD. Truly inspiring. Great stuff.
Way to go you crazy Canadian Crossfitters! (good job, eh?)
Hmmm, just watched it again. Maybe those weren't 45's. Can't tell. No matter, though. And a 2:56!! Wow. Humbling.
Yes! Quicktime format today :D
Very inspiring video too, seeing the lean, muscular and able monsters in action!
My life is all the richer for your artwork Coach.
Some very inspirational stories from this year's Hawai'i Ironman Triathlon Championships:
The 80-year-old grandfather
A man battling ALS
A woman w/ one leg
A wounded NAVY SEAL in a wheel chair
Makes me wonder how able-bodied people w/ 2 arms and 2 legs can sit on the couch and get fat...
"The science is in the explanation."
I don't think we need science here if that's the case. We're just as well off pretending that it's all gnomes and magic tricks.
Science is only useful if it allows you to *predict*. If the science we develop to *explain* can't then be provably turned around to correctly predict, then it all just looks like a mumbly-jumbly sales pitch for the ab-lounger.
That video was amazing and inspirational as usual. Some day I'll have the money to go to one of those.
I love you coach.
haha those were quarter plates...and I didn't see any polys in that video, maybe a dark japanese girl though.
That video was amazing! That little kid wasn't playing around, he was really trying to get some. Man that was motivational. Keep'em coming. Let's me know how much work I have to do:)
My favorite is the LEO's standing in the background stunned at Fran's beauty.
as a humbled participant at the golden seminar last weekend, i really only have one thing to say....OUCH!
well 2 things actually....THANKS
Yes, CrossFit Toronto is now a reality. The top floor of the pictured building is CF Toronto space; there is a mechanic garage in the street-level space. The Web site has more details regarding the location, so please feel free to check it out:
FYI- It's 10lbs on each side= 65# thrusters for women... And her name is Annie! ... she's amazing!
6 mile run followed by 3:43 Fran. Still some work to do to get under 3:00.
Any tips on how to recover from these brutal workouts from a newbie? Stretching, ibuprofen, whisky, etc?
