Today we begin our Independence Weekend celebration of heroines. We start with Hildy in honor of Army Spc. Hilda Clayton, 22, of Augusta, Georgia. Spc. Clayton died from injuries sustained when a mortar malfunctioned during an Afghan National Army training exercise in Qaraghahi, Afghanistan. She was assigned to the 55th Signal Company and the 21st Signal Brigade in Fort Meade, Maryland, and was providing Combat Camera support at the time of her death. She is survived by her husband, Chase Clayton.
Compare to July 1, 2016.
Please remember our special Fourth of July Weekend schedule: 10:30am classes only on Monday and Tuesday.
Today's farmers carry calls for a weight in each hand.

Happy Birthday Brian! It takes commitment to get climb to the top of the rope! We hope your special day is filled with love, laughter and a few burpees;-)
Commitment to a practice, be it CrossFit, yoga, meditation, or any of our weekly lifestyle practices, is the only way you'll enjoy lasting change. Commitment, however, requires the integration of a whole suite of other mental toughness attributes.
Commitment requires discipline, consistency, and focus. What was the last thing (or person) to which you committed yourself? Relationship commitments are common in our culture. What about your commitment to yourself? How often have you committed to a healthy lifestyle only to fall short? Our commitment to ourselves is arguably the most important. If we do not take care of our body, mind, and spirit, who will do it for us?
We are here to help you stay committed to a fitness practice that has a profoundly positive impact on your physical, mental and spiritual health. Thank you for trusting us.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALLISON! We hope your special day is filled with love, laughter and perhaps a few burpees.
Did you complete 108 Sun Salutations? How did it feel to move slowly and deliberately with your breath? Did you notice any changes in your back, hamstrings or shoulders?
This week's Whole Life Challenge is to pick your own healthy habit you want to create. Choose something you've been wanting to change and change it! It can be attending the 6 am class. It can be to stop chewing your fingernails. It can be letting the people in our life know how much you appreciate them. It can be anything that make this world a better place. Have fun!
After today's Gymnastics Pressing Progressions you're going to do a fun little interval I created. Enjoy!
