Outstanding Cert at Reebok CrossFit One. Very knowledgeable coaches who are clearly subject matter experts. Very personable coaches who really know how to make a Level 1 a lot of fun! Thanks Guys!
Had a great time at the Level 1 cert in Atlanta this weekend. Great set of coaches there. I love Christmas.lol
a sub 4:00 thousand meter row? yeah right
CFAUG (Augusta) gettin' some education at the Lv1 Cert in Atlanta this weekend!
Brody, Erin, Park will be callin' me out on faults left and right now.
Just finished putting my Crossfit gym together in my basement, so instead of a rest day, I'll be doing my first WOD at home with this:
5 Rds for time of:
5 Power Cleans (135lbs).
10 Ring Dips.
15 Back Squats (135lbs).
20 Situps (Abmat, unsupported).
25 KB Swings (50lbs).
Should be interesting and exciting!..
Soon as I get a chance, I'll make a video of my home gym and submit it..hopefully it'll end up on the main site. I'm pretty proud of my home gym!..
Are you kidding? Top 1k row time at our box is 3:10
Yeah man, I bounce around the bottom of the RX'd crowd at the gym and I can do that with no problem and no prior rowing experience

Thank you Chuck, Mike G., Nicole, Sarah, Xmas, and Tyler for an awesome weekend at the level1 in ATL. Learned a ton, and can't wait to pass it on.
Super "Hell Yeah" shout out and thank you to the whole Level 1 Seminar Staff at Reebok CF One this past weekend. I enjoyed my time in the center of the circle! Like Russell said, I could listen to you guys talk all things CrossFit all week long. Course presentation was great and all break-out seasions were well organized. I learned alot of info to help me reach that "Virtuosity" state someday!!
3:18... now try you 3:10 after 5 minutes of hard wrestling...
Great Level 1 Cert class from the Atlanta crew: Chuck, Mike G, Christmas, Nicole, Sara, and Tyler! Can't wait to put it to use. Can't thank Dan the GodFather enough for the hospitality!

Loved the CERT & crew in Columbus! Really got to know how GYM MAYOR thinks! :)
From what I can tell, there are no hero WODs named for troops you have been killed in the line of duty while serving in Africa. Alas, this may change soon (all links are wfs):
You know, on the surface this troop deployment makes no sense from a strategic point of view for national security...ummm...wait a minute...there are two billion reasons why we should send U.S. troops to Uganda:
Follow the troops to find whatever oil is left on this planet...and you're very welcome for my latest news update from the Peak Oil Central Bureau Desk :^)
"It's all about oil...oil, oil, oil..." -- quote from an international journo friend of mine who covered the crude oil business news sector before, during, and after the First Gulf War. I never believed it while I was in, but I sure as heck do now. However, is there anything worth fighting for more than oil?
Great time at the Cert in Cbus this weekend!!! Thanks to all the trainers!!
Amazing experience at Rogue this weekend! Thank you to all of the wonderful trainers, you all are a true inspiration!
While we're on the subject of rowing, getBUILT Chattanooga CrossFit proudly claims first place among participating affiliates in the Concept2 Fall Team Challenge. See y'all in the spring...
Absolutely amazing time at Reebok Crossfit One. Russell, EC, Dave, Austin, Denise amazing job..at the top of your game..I enjoyed the honesty and realistic approach at the Cert this weekend. Well Done!!!
hawthorne on crossfit.com; gotta love it! one of my favs
Thank you participants at the L1 at Reebok CF One. Your passion and energy were contagious, and it was a pleasure to work with you all! Get some!
I had a great time this weekend in Atlanta cert. I learn A LOT! Thank you to all the instructors you'll are AWESOME, and I can't say that enough... I had a great time being in the circle, umm, 4 times. Funny how you think your doing it right only to learn your not LOL...Well worth the attentions (0: A big, "Hell Yeah!"
Made up yesterday's WOD today. Results posted there.
Did yesterday's workout... slow and steady with lots of interruptions ... like the daughter coming into the garage to see me and the dog pretty much sitting on me while I was doing situps... I guess me elbowing her and brushing her as I went back and forth was like a pet. The Big news is that I managed to do
wait for it
5 kipping pullups in a ROW! I finally strung them together!
It only took 2 and a half years of crossfitting to be able to do that.
I will say that it is a LOT less taxing than 5 dead hang pullups in a row.
I've missed a few weeks from the mainsite...but was finally able to get back at it today:
21 complete rounds, plus 5 pullups
*probably pushed a bit too hard for being out of it for awhile - I will be hurtin the next few days...
GREAT course at CF Reebok! Russell and his crew were fabulous. I learned tons and was truly impressed!
My version of Sunday's workout (because it looked to hard for me.....I know, I know)
25 MINUTE AMRAP (w/a 20# weighted vest):
Oh. I did 8 rds...........forgot to mention that
did yesterdays WOD today, couldn't do it yesterday most of the team wasn't around
got 43:08 rx..amazing how some people got such low times!
It'd be cool to rope climb a little tomorrow!
great weekend at reebok crossfit one for the Level 1 Cert! Russ, EC, Austin, Denise, Dave, and James, you guys did an awesome job! Learned a ton and improved my technique on everything from air squats to kipping.
GREAT level 1 cert at Reebok Crossfit One.... EC, Denise, Austin, James, Dave, Jay, and Russ put on a stellar show, and I learned a lot too! And to my CFNE coaches, Ben, Heather, Mel, and Mat: you prepared me well! Thanks All!
did "Manion" today. 29:45 Rx'd, new PR.
Thanks for the awesome experience at Level 1 Cert at CrossFit Strong in Dallas this past weekend. Had a great time and learned a lot.
Only had time for 3 rounds:
Kevin C and Mas, on your heels.
Way to go Julie.
I still dont have the kip technique.
My garage workout partner, a beagle, helps me with sit ups and push ups.
Nothing like a 25# dog on your back.
Thank you to all the attendees of the L1 at Reebok CrossFit ONE. You guys were awesome! You know where to find us if you need anything :)
Did Sunday's wod today. Results there.
