New Graduate: Jay

I always find writing these post about veterans kind of weird because they're usually reserved for things dine early in a CrossFit career, but Jay got one last night. At the warmup of the 6:30 session, he said, "think I can do a strict bar muscle-up?" We kinda shrugged so he tried it and actually got one pretty clean. When I went back a minute later and grabbed the camera, he tried another one. Here's how it looked.

Not as good as the first one, but still counts! For the past year and some change, Jay's been keeping things going as consistently as any college-aged kid I cam remember. I think we can all expect the same slow, gradual upward trajectory for a long time. Keep up the good work brother!

Summer 2018 Final Attendance

This Summer's attendance turned out to be pretty accurate mostly in part to Jacob taking about 7 (maybe?) volunteer hours to help me sort the thing out. Since we had a lot of people join for either short amounts of time, or towards the end of Summer, I split it into two cateogries: Full-time and Late Registration. Here's how it turned out.

We should all know by now who was in first place for attendance!

Overall I think these really look good. Including the Late Registration list, we had 27 people over 50%. In 2013 we had 35 people at over 50, andin 2015 we had 37 (which, if you count the Babies for this year, we'd be at the same number.) We made up for some lower attendance percentage points at the bottom by sheer numbers, and this is what helped with multiple days of 50+ in attendance (also noting a few mobility days of 47). But having these numbers also means we can finally determine the results of the Draft.

The draft took place early in the Summer and pretty much excluded everyone on the Late Registration list. I did give each team two free agent options to pick up based on who they thought would end up joining. To factor this in, I figured since each team had 20 draft picks, I would count the top 19 (including the captain), giving the free agent choices a chance to factor in if they helped the team. I added up the total percentage points then divided by 19. Here's the results:

4th place: Team Jay

Notes. Despite being the prime beneficiary of Elizabeth's Darko Milicic selection and seeing Cecilia slide to him, Jay could not get over a sub-par drafting of our rookie class. I also believe he was counting on better outings from Mr. Wonsil, Baby Josh, and Baby Mallory. As a GM of infamous Mario Baseball Championship contender teams such as Orville Ridenbacher's Cock (Beaman Winter Classic - '09), Albino's Army (Michael Jackson Young Man' Spring Fling '10), San Antonio Sperm (NBA on TNT theme - '17), and Donkey Punch (Shrek theme - '13), Jay has been known for his conservative approach to drafting. He'll lock in a superstar or two, then bypass other high-level players to ensure he has enough cap room to keep the bottom of the order strong - which notably led to Dry Bones's breakout season in 2014. Look for Jay to make some trades next year to keep the consistency.

Grade. B-. Anyone in their right mind would have picked Mallory and Josh with the first Babies selections, just didn't take into account the weekend vacations. Also shame on him for only taking Jesse out of the Junkin/Eason family.

3rd place: Team David

Notes. The picture above is the top of a David Saporito air squat and is also a perfect representation of his Summer; he was focused on beating everyone else that he forgot to keep track of his own stuff. The team captain, first-pick-holding, and defending Athlete of the Summer managed to get the lowest attendance among the 4 captains. Yet somehow he didn't finish last and was only a few points away from 2nd place. David did not have any stars on his team but did manage to have a good middle-of-the-order group. Plus, by sheer blind luck, he drafted 4 of the top 5 highest-ranking rookies in the 10 am/5:30 classes - including fan-favorite NuNu. David, of course, didn't know half of the people when he drafted them, but I suppose some might call that intuition. Look for David to drop even lower in attendance next year but draft someone in the 90s to make up for it.

Grade. B. Lindsey with the second pick was very questionable at the time but it actually turned out good.

2nd place: Team Biff

Notes. As I mentioned above, Elizabeth somehow got away with passing on Cecilia in favor of Josh Howey - a 50(!) point swing in attendance - with her first pick and pushed her way to a top-2 finish. She made up for this in two major ways: drafting both AOTS contenders Jennifer and Erica in the early rounds, and picking up Evan Pugh (56%) as a free agent. Mrs. Bennis was also a steal in the 3rd round. Elizabeth has been known to panic under pressure - most notably diagnosing herself with athsma during a July 800m run workout. Her first stint as a GM continued that trend, and a better first selection would have put her right in contention for first place. Maybe she passed her prime in 2015, or maybe she'll bounce back like she's known to do and bring home the championship next Summer. Until then, we're just left to ponder that first pick.

Grade. C. Inexcusable, Biff. I would expect that out of Jennifer, but not you.

1st place: Team Shakes

Notes. You may notice that is not a picture of Katie Shakes, but rather a picture of Original Champions Club Diva Aly Baringer yawning in the middle of the workout. If anyone did not see Shakes winning the draft then, well, I don't know what to say. She pounced on the opportunity to pick Ashley Fry after David Sap took Danielle first overall, hit on the rookies with Dylan and Abby Walker, showed good judgement with Mr. Bennis and Josie, and picked up a great free agent in Reggie. Aaaand she was the only captain to finish in the top-10 for attendance. The only nitpick would be drafting Coach Casey over his wife, Mrs. Tara. Had to see that one coming.

Grade. A. Boring, no-nonsense A.


So that's the breakdown. Considering some of the big names we lost this Summer (Sabal, Jacqueline, Jacob, Bubs, Mr. WA, Binno) I'm very happy with how things turned out. By the numbers, I would rank this as our 3rd best Summer - behind 2015 and 2013 - though we did have a thriving Babies session this time around, and one less session during the week as well. Our team workouts were really good this time around, but I'm still salty we only had like 10 show up for 80s (our parents made up for it though). I'll make sure to emphasize that one more next Summer. It's also noticable that we're missing the high school crowd; Danielle is doing her thing, but in the past we had like 8 Danielles, plus another 8 Conors - who was our only other non-rookie high school kid in the top 40 (Maddy came in at 50). This is due to a lack of recruiting on my part and is hopefully getting fixed as we speak. This thing really shines when we have a superstar high school crowd like in 2012-2015, so that will be my main point of attention as the school year goes on (which, hopefully, the turf project will help with).

As for the attendance draft: I really liked it. We always tweak things up - criteria for Athlete of the Summer and Athletes of the Week have changed over the years - but my plan is to hang a list somewhere of every proceeding year's draft champions. Maybe a trophy like the Little Brown Jug or something. I'll think on it. I updated the original post below to include percentage points by the names drafted.

Champions Club Summer 2018 Draft

There you go, Shakes. A picture.

Thank you guys again for a great Summer! It was kind of nostalgic that it opened on the exact same day (Monday, June 11) that we did our first ever workout in this building. Some time in July, I was sitting around with some of the leftovers of the evening session.

"You know Chris," said Mr. Carey, "I was thinking, and I really, genuinely like every single person in the gym right now. I literally can't name a single person I don't like... I really do miss Jacob and Faust, though," he added.

This got me thinking about two things; first, he's right. There are always people I don't really enjoy, but still respect and admire for their work ethic. But this time around, I really think we got it as close to right as we've ever come. More Shannon would have been nice, more David would have been nice, maybe a little less Lindsey, but overall the community was humming! Second, Jacob came back at the end of Summer with a different attitude than when he took a break in February (I think, maybe April?). This kind of place is definitely not for everyone. Not only that, but we're dealing with children (yes, you college kids are still children) and children have a lot of moving parts in their life: school, relationships, interests, jobs, sports, friends. Shoot, I can't remember the last time I genuinely made a new friend (a good point Jacob noted a few months ago). With that being said, if I'm committed to center our gym around kids, I have to accept that some will need to see what other things they like. It's tough in the moment, but better in the long run. I'm pretty picky about attitudes right now, and that's why we have a semi-closed-door policy for workouts and gatherings, but it's definitely not bolted shut. Just knock.

This Summer, I think and hope, provided us with a great base to build on moving forward. It usually does, and that's why I enjoy them so much. We get to simultaneously see in the future and past, while having a blast in the present. So for now, we'll pack everything up in the loft, where it will wait patiently until June 10, 2019, and see if we can hold the fort until then. I really appreciate you guys and, for once, let's keep the momentum going into the fall.

Behind the Champion: The Junkin/Eason Family

One of the things I enjoyed the most this Summer was having the entire Junkin and Eason family as part of the gym. As soon as Kasey joined in 2015, I had a feeling we would get Lindsey and Josie to follow at some point. Jesse, Jay, and Josie have been my neighbors my entire life, and Kasey and Lindsey woudl find there way around the house to disrupt our Mario Baseball tournaments. This was very entertaining for me to read, and hopefully you enjoy it too! I emailed them the questions separately and they replied with a few revisions. Not sure if they discussed matters internally or not.

Either way, we present Behind the Champion: The Junkin/Eason Family!


What is your first memory from a family party?

Jesse: Hard question. I would say in general Survivor nights. The family meets every week to watch the show Survivor. This goes back many years, as the show is now on its 37th season. In general, Thursdays (now Wednesdays) were always dedicated to watch Survivor.

Jay: Family Reunions at my cousin’s farm house. We had epic water balloon fights, messed with chickens, and stayed up all night playing Sardines.

Lindsey: I don’t remember the earliest memory but the latest memory is the family reunion we just had in Sutton’s Bay at the end of June. We hung out and had family time together that doesn’t happen very often. 

Josie: Our other cousins used to live on a farm, and I just remember all the older kids showing me how to chase the chickens down and hypnotize them.

Kasey: I don’t know what my first memory is, but I do know that whenever the cousins get together it’s a good time.

What is your first CrossFit memory? (That could be in the gym, or your first time hearing about CrossFit)

Jay: That time you had me do Kalsu when I was 13 and I died. I’m still upset.

Kasey: I ended up at the gym for the first time as a result of a dare. The night before I was on my third piece of pie and Jay told me I wouldn’t survive at the gym so of course I had to prove him wrong. I don’t remember what the workout was, all I remember is not being able to move properly for a week afterwards. I still don’t know how y’all ever got me to come back.

Jesse: 2011 at Bishop Foley, max rep pull ups in the gym. This was back before Jay decided to become a freak and I had a chance to beat him, so there was always that competition.

Lindsey: Jay and Kasey had taken me to my first workout in I think the end of April and the workout was a back squat, deadlift and run in the cold April rain. No idea why I even came back but kind of happy that I did.

Josie: I remember Jay having to borrow my Harry Potter robe one year for the theme workout, which I thought was pretty cool.

If you could sum up Lindsey’s personality with one event from her life, what would it be? Lindsey, you can answer this too.

Kasey: She’s going to hate me for telling this story, but one time we were at a restaurant and trying to figure out what to leave for tip and our friend got out her calculator and said that tip should be $8.50. Lindsey then asks if she should leave a $5 bill and say “keep the change”

Jesse: One time we all went to the Pistons game in Auburn Hills. Lindsey volunteered to drive, and there was no argument from me. Until we were going 30 miles faster then everybody in the fast lane and my girlfriend Shannon is scared for her life. Kasey, in the passenger seat, says its much more fun if you close your eyes and put your hands up like you’re on a rollercoaster. Shannon still will refuse a ride from Lindsey if at all possible.

Josie:  We all went skiing one time, and after spending the majority of the day failing on the bunny hill with Kasey and I, Lindsey decided she was suddenly ready to go down the biggest mountain. Well, when she was about halfway down the hill she veered to the right and slammed directly into a shed that was lifted off the ground on cinder blocks. Her skis went underneath and there was nothing there to stop her head from going straight into the wall, which we think may have led to an unresolved concussion.

Jay: When Linsey was little she fell of a swing set in our back yard and cracked her head open. The doctors put a few staples in her head and said that everything would be alright. But in my opinion, she’s been a little loopy ever since.

Lindsey: I have no idea what anyone else is going to say but just remember I am deaf in one ear and that shouldn’t be held against me.

Bonus story supplied by Kasey: One time, after a Lions game downtown, we were walking back to car and Lindsey was turned toward us talking and was not paying attention at all. She then walked straight into a street sign full force. She bounced back so far that the person behind her had to catch her and the sign started swinging back and forth. For the rest of the walk back the people around us kept shouting "watch out! street sign ahead" or "careful! don't fall down the curb"

Who has the worst taste in music? Explain.

Lindsey: Don’t listen to the others I have the best taste.

Kasey: Lindsey – she goes through all of these weird phases. Currently you’ll find her listening solely to Broadway musicals.

Josie: Lindsey. As of lately, she exclusively listens to Broadway.

Jesse: Kasey. When you can sing every word, know every subtle punctuation, and can do every dance move to the High School Musical soundtrack, you know it has been on repeat for a couple years.

Jay: Josie. She has this on her iPod:

Who would win Harry Potter trivia between Josie, Lindsey, and Kasey? Who would win a neutral-site, standard two-star game of Mario Baseball between Jesse and Jay?

Jesse: Josie. Jesse for sure.

Lindsey: I would love to say I would win in Harry Potter, but Kasey would probably win. Jesse would probably win even though I have never seen them play because honestly who cares J

Jay: Kasey. Jay. Harry Potter Trivia would be competitive. Mario Baseball would not be.

Kasey: Me 100% - I’d beat anyone at Harry Potter trivia. Jesse

Josie: Kasey and Jesse

Who has the weirdest eating habits?

Josie: Jay. At least once a week, he’ll mix tuna fish, mayo, onions, and horseradish in a giant bowl for dinner (which it then takes the rest of the week to air out our house, and get rid of the smell.)

Jesse: Jay. Tuna fish mixed with mayo, onions, and horseradish is a daily snack. Makes the house REEK.

Lindsey: Josie definitely, she has a fear of mayonnaise.

Jay: Josie. She was the pickiest eater growing up. I think she went a few years straight of eating nothing but bread and butter for dinner. I’m not sure how she’s still alive.

Kasey: I can’t decide between Josie and Jay. Although as an honorable mention: Lindsey and Josie used to dip sausage links in butter.

If Jesse found a wallet on the ground with $180 in assorted bills, a 7-11 gift card, and a driver license, what would he do?

Jesse: Find the person and give it back because I’m a good person.

Kasey: Find the guy and negotiate a reward (the 7-11 gift card would be non-negotiable)

Jay: He would throw away the license, buy a few video games with the cash, stock up on Monster energy drinks with the 7-11 gift card, and lock himself in his room for a few weeks.

Josie: He’d call the guy on the license and negotiate a reward for returning it.

Lindsey: I have no idea, he would probably ask Shannon (his girlfriend) what he should do. Probably return it without the 7-11 gift cards

Who had (or has) the most annoying phase?

Kasey: We’ve all had them. Jay when he thought he was too cool for everyone. Josie and Lindsey used to wear skirts over their jeans. Jesse’s are once every hour.

Lindsey: Jay and Jesse both went through the phase of refusing to be seen with their family out in public. It was really annoying but everyone else is probably going to say my fangirl days.

Jesse: Josie. She always threw a fit and threatened to run away from home. Even when we were on vacation in Florida…

Josie: Me. I won’t deny it, I used to turn off the GameCube in the middle of Mario Baseball before they could save their data. With that being said though, Jesse and Jay would exclude me from stuff as I was the youngest, so by being a brat, I got my revenge.

Jay: Josie was a F****** B**** from about the age 8 to 10. Her primary goal at all times was tormenting Jesse and I. Anytime anyone else came around she would act like a precious little angel. But as soon as they left and it was just us, her voice would drop, her eyes would turn red, and devil horns would poke out of her head.

If a workout consisted of AMRAP in 20 minutes of 400-meter run, 20 push-ups, and 20 kb swings, how exactly would Kasey cut the reps?

Josie: She’d skip the push-ups entirely.

Lindsey: She would start doing only 10 push-ups after the first ten minutes.

Kasey: Well I’m not doing the full 20 push-ups, that’s for sure.

Jesse: Kasey keeps her count at what she thinks she deserves, not at what she is at. If she gets the run and 10 pushups, she has no problem going with the flow when others are transitioning to KB swings.

Jay: She wouldn’t be there. She would have gotten a text from Lindsey earlier in the day saying that the workout has running in it and would conveniently make plans to go out with her work friends instead.

Describe a short, funny story about someone else and see if we can guess who it is.

Anonymous: This person decided they were so hungry that they attempted to eat three Big Macs, and succeeded. This was followed up by a night of puking in the sink and clogging up the drain completely. This led to a parent doing intense plumbing work at 3am to remove the smell from the home.

Anonymous: I took drivers training with this person and when it was their turn to drive the first thing they did was back the car into a dumpster.

Anonymous: Just recently, we were all together for our annual cousin reunion and for a quick lunch we made two frozen pizzas (which aren’t that big to begin with and mind you, there are 10 of us there). I hadn’t eaten any yet and saw there was only one piece left and I got mad and started yelling at people asking how much they ate. Most people said “one or two slices”, but this person had the audacity to eat six. After destroying four breakfast burritos that same morning.

Anonymous: We were taking a catamaran out to go snorkeling, when one of the boys realized their “bathing suit” wasn’t really a bathing suit and didn’t have lining in it. So, as a solution, he begged me to let him wear my jean shorts (which are way too small for him) underneath.

Anonymous: This person was trying to throw a rock off a cliff and had the momentum to get it the farthest out of all of us but didn’t let go in time and it hit the ground right in front of the said person and sprayed sand everywhere. (it was a funnier in person)

What do you like to get at el Patio?

Jesse: A large frozen margarita and enchiladas with jalapenos. If there is not a jalapeno with every bite, it’s not enough.

Lindsey: Never been there. Probably nachos or chicken quesadilla. I’m a plain girl.

Josie: Chicken quesadilla.

Kasey: They don’t call me Quesadilla for nothing.

Jay: Never been.

 On a scale from 1-10, how many words come out of Jay’s mouth through the course of an average day?

Kasey: 5-6

Josie: 6

Lindsey: Maybe 3 on a normal day but get a few beers down him and probably 6.

Jesse: Depends what people ask him. If nobody asks him anything I would say 0.

Jay: No comment

What is the preferred method of getting rid of pimples?


Jay: I always try popping them before they’re ready. They don’t pop, end up looking way worse, and I hate myself for being impatient.

Jesse: Have facial hair to hide them.

Josie: Face wash.

Kasey: You gotta pop ‘em.

What is the most memorable instance of someone getting into trouble in school?

Jesse: Jay drew male genetalia in the agenda of a female classmate in 7th grade. He was suspended for it. I think the only one out of us 5 to ever get in moderate trouble at school.

Josie: Jay got suspended in middle school for drawing genitalia in some girl’s agenda.

Lindsey: Jay when he drew a penis and got suspended in middle school.

Kasey: Jay drawing a man’s private parts in an agenda and getting suspended.

Jesse: See above

Jay: ;)

If you were hanging from a cliff and had to rely on either a dead tree branch or Josie’s arms to pull you up, which would you pick?

Jesse: Tree branch. I would rely on myself to figure it out over Josie trying to save me.

Jay: Don’t like either option. Dead tree branch.

Kasey: Tough choice, but I think the tree branch offers more support.

Lindsey: I believe in Josie but also at the same time she would probably pull a Scar and let me go. (MAY MUFASA REST IN PIECE)

Josie: A dead tree branch.

How would you describe the progression of how you all have gotten along throughout your life?

Jesse: Family is family.

Kasey: This is a trick question- nothing has changed. We still fight and annoy the crap out of each other, but at the end of the day, they’re my ride or dies #retweet.

Jay: I think we’ve gotten along pretty well for the most part. Josie and Lindsey have had some serious beefs throughout the years. They seem to get under each other’s skin a lot. Kasey’s usually in the middle of it, or swings one way or the other based on the argument. Jesse and I are just there to commentate and make fun of their drama.

Josie: We all had stupid fights growing up that got blown way out of proportion (except me and Lindsey, those were real.) We all get along for the most part now-a-days though, unless it involves a board game.

Lindsey: We are all older but not really that much more mature. Josie and I still fight about once every time we see each other, we have cut that from 5 times but Jay instigates about 4 out of 5 fights.

What is the most memorable fight over something stupid you've had with someone?

Jay: I don't get in fights with anyone. I'm too nice. I could write a book about fights that Kasey, Lindsey, and Josie have been in though.

Lindsey: Every fight I have had with Josie.

Josie: About 10 years or so ago, we were camping and Lindsey left her chair to do something else. So, following the rule "move your feet, lose your seat," I sat down. Well then Lindsey got really mad saying it was her chair, but I was too stubborn to move. Eventually, the yelling at each other turned into a tug of war contest, and the chair broke. Then, as she was even more mad at me, Lindsey stormed into the camper and slammed the door shut, which too ended up breaking. It was a very dramatic day.

Jesse: This doesn’t involve me but it’s worth telling. Kasey and Lindsey once wore the same exact dress to a wedding. They were so upset with each other that they didn’t enjoy it and pouted the entire time.

Kasey: Lindsey and I fight about something stupid every single day. Jay's most memorable fight of ours is probably when Lindsey bought the SAME EXACT DRESS AS ME to wear to our cousins wedding. Like dude, get your own style and I bought mine first.

Rank you five in terms of "personality" with 1 being best and 5 being worst, and "personality" having as subjective of a meaning as possible.

Lindsey: This is hard because I feel we all have good personalities and we are all so different. So i am refusing to answer this

Jesse: 1- Jesse 2-Lindsey 3-Josie 4 – Jay 5 – Kasey

Jay: T1) Jesse, Jay, Josie, Kasey, Lindsey

Kasey: 1. Jesse 2. Josie 3. Lindsey 4. Jay 5. Me lol

Josie: 1- Josie, 2- Jesse, 3/4- Kasey and Lindsey are tied, 5- Jay.
