Our Intramural Open Teams showed their spirit last Friday night! What will they do for our final FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS? Come to the gym at 5:30pm and find out!
Boy has this year's CrossFit Games Open been AMAZING! We have squatted, jumped, deadlifted, pushed-up, bear crawled, rowed and cleaned heavy and we're still smiling and ready for more. BRING.IT.ON 18.5!
This is the closest Intramural competition we've ever had! Only ONE POINT separates the two teams. Team Littles have made a spectacular surge over the past 4 weeks to whittle away at Team Big's pre-season 20 point lead. Tonight is the final night to see who is better at CrossFit, little people or big people. Here is how the two teams are stacking up:
You have 6 classes today and Sunday at 10AM to do 18.5. We are not able to run 18.5 in our classes on Monday. You must do it Friday or Sunday.
It wouldn't be Friday without the mention of FOOD! Eating well is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle, and I am super excited to announce that Chipolte is sponsoring our final Friday Night Lights with delicious chicken burritos. You can make yours Paleo by dumping it into a bowl:-)
Chipolte is unique amongst American fast food companies in that it does not use any GMO food, it does not support big industrial agriculture, and is committed to partnering with farmers, ranchers, and other suppliers whose practices emphasize quality and responsibility. You can read more about their Food With Integrity mission here.
I also love Chipotle's transparency about the calories, macronutrient and and micronutrient quantities of their menu items. Calories are prominently displayed in the store next to menu options, and you can get comprehensive nutrient information on their website. The online interactive nutrition calculator allows you to know exactly how many calories, and grams of protein, carbohydrates and fat are in your favorite personalized meal. This is why Chipotle is the preferred fast food recommendation of nutrition coaching services like Working Against Gravity and Renaissance Periodization. I count my macros as part of my nutrition program and I love knowing that my favorite post-workout steak and rice burrito bowl with lettuce, red salsa and tomatillo salsa has 25 grams of protein, 47 grams of carbohydrates and 10 grams of fat. I can meet my macros, get a good post-workout meal, eat food which supports my core values of sustainability, and support a locally managed business that is supporting mine. It's a win-win!
Well, just what did the CrossFit community vote as our final CrossFit Open Workout?
