9/11 Memorial WOD

In remembrance of this Historic event of our country we are Honoring our Fallen.

Deep in meditation, prayer, and recalling all of the details of that day it is like a fresh wound at times, but to those that lost loved ones that day our Hearts are with you.

Man your sweaty stations!

Every single time I tell people to man their stations the tendency is to look as lost as possible as if I’d asked them to look for the corner in a square room! It never fails, that after description of exercises, movement standards, and walk through I would often ask the crew do you have any questions?

All would shake their collective heads and reply No. once the proverbial 3,2,1- Go is announced they start with the questions! Okay, what gives?!

This day you’re in the volleyball court at Mayfair Park so make sure you bring change of socks, and shoes.

Meet at the vb court for some abrasive exercises today! Yes! Exfoliate while you kb clean, Jerk, swing, drag, gasp, hallucinate, sit up and pray it ends sooner than later and wish you’d stay at home!

What’s that? You want to skip the WOD and stay in bed a little longer? Why would you even consider such blasphemy? Get out here and join us!

The great thing about working out in the outdoors is the lack of music, and the need to focus on your breathing technique while you perform the exercises correctly!

Motivating music? Listen up there kiddo, and listen well. The noise you’ll learn to appreciate is actually coming from your body to inform you of how much you’re exerting yourself, or not at enough. How your food intake can make it, or break it by performing exercises that have a fatiguing factor once you notice that what you ate is not really fueling your workouts much less your recovery.

All I want to impress on you is that by drowning out the sounds your body is making, and feeling right about the quarter of the workout in-is that you are going to second guess your input and dial it in to make it work for you in your lifestyle

Today you’ll be pleased to know that we’re meeting in Mayfair park at the volleyball court. Sweet! Yeah, I know!
