Theme Workouts from the Vault

Around this time of year, the Champions Club has traditionally done two of our school-year theme workouts: Super Bowl and Valentine's day. For the second year in a row, we did not do the Super Bowl workout, but once we get the numbers back up we will be sure to bring it back. It will be difficult, however, to top the classic 2014 Super Bowl workout during the prime years for The Freaks. We had a crazy tiebreaker, a fishing battle, a chick-fight with Amy and Bubs, and the only sin Aaron Augustyn has ever committed was caught on video.

Later that month we did Anita Partyka's Valentine's Day Heartbreaker - a workout where teams are given cards to play on their opponents. Highlights from the last round can be seen below.

This one is not out of the running yet for this year. Stay tuned..

Theme Workout Announcement: Christmas Workout 2017

Hey kids it's that time of year already. And aside from our Summer theme workouts, the consensus favorite team workout has to be the Christmas Workout Spectacular. Tradition says it's held on Christmas Eve morning, and this year will ne no different. Here's the specifics:

Sunday, December 24

9 am

@ the Champions Club

Last year was the first time we brought in the Babies to work out with our group, and this year should show even more participation from that group, considering we have tons of them bouncing off the walls every Sunday. However, as of now I plan on it going down similar to the Thanksgiving workout, where they will be partnered up with each other. But as usual I will improvise as I go.

We will have milk and cookies and tons of other delicious goodies as always. Last few years we even had waffles. No promises... but come in ready to be fed to your heart's content.

Hope to see you guys there!

Theme Workout Announcement: Thanksgiving 2017

With a lot of new faces around this year, I wanted to make sure everyone knows about our traditional Thanksgiving Morning workout. This year's edition will be at 8:30 am, same as last year. All are invited, especially the college kids back in town. The schedule for the rest of the weekend will be posted sometime next week. Just remember the basics:

Thursday, November 23

8:30 am

Thanksgiving 2016Also, Jarrod and I are talking about the specifics of Lifts 4 Gifts. And when I say talking, I mean I left him a funny message, he laughed at the fact that we are procrastinating this yet again, and now we actually remember that there is a thing called Lifts 4 Gifts that we are in charge of.

So stay tuned, because there might be an official announcement in the next week or so. Or maybe not. Who knows. But you guys know the drill. Middle of December(ish). Probably my gym. Lift heavy things. Go home.

Organic Roasted Seaweed

Halloween was, is now, and will always be my favorite holiday. Disney's Halloween Treat was a nightly viewing, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown was an after-event tradition, and the McDonald's Halloween cassette tapes would be in heavy rotation after school while I played football in the front room. And lord have mercy... the Starbursts would roll in! Then we started to do the Halloween workout with our CrossFit group in 2010 and it has been good ever since.

I would love to say The Babies' Halloween Theme Workout tonight was awesome. I would love to say that is was a success because they practiced deadlifts with kettblebells and looked good, or they actually knew that your elbows are supposed to be in when pushing a weight over your head. And I would love to say that they were able to uphold one of the oldest and most noble of traditions once a year: an incredible sugar buzz and surefire boost in the revenue of local dentist offices. Then I binge on the leftover candy at the gym and pretend that I won't be feeling the effects of it tomorrow. Tried and true this system; one that is not to be tampered with, ever.

But of course, it has to be. PC Principal has struck down with vengence. And now I will have to explain to next year's Babies and parents how, yeah it's fun and cool, but some horrible, horrible person is out there giving out this...

... to Conamora. If I was in the English mood, I would use this as some kind of metaphor to represent the end-of-summer hope for the fall gym attendance, only to be stuck around 20 people per day, or a lens to view the current hip hop scene that has stripped much of the musical instrumentation and in-depth lyrics for repackaged, bland mumbling. Or I could write another Dr. Suess poem. But I'm just mad, so I'm not.

For the first Halloween of my life, I feel defeated, unappetized, and drained.

Good night, sweet candy.

Theme Workout Announcement (maybe): Halloween 2017

In the past we have done a Trick-or-Treat workout on Halloween, where the kids (college included) head around the neighborhood at around 6, bring in as much candy as possible, then do a workout based on the candy they got. And the costumes...

Yes, Aaron Sexton was a taco.... welp, there were costumes.

So I know some of the Babies were thinking about doing it. If we get a good enough group of kids to Trick or Treat on Halloween (next Tuesday) around 6 pm, then work out at 7:30 - Conor, Crawford, Danielle, etc. - then we'll rock it. Note, the "I'll work out but not Trick or Treat" is not an option, seeing as the workout is dependant on the candy collected. If you can make it, please post to comments!
