Quote of the Week 3-22-2021

“I judge you unfortunate because you have never lived through misfortune. You have passed through life without an opponent—no one can ever know what you are capable of, not even you.”

NEWS

Welcome, welcome friends!  I contemplated not even writing this week’s blog or bringing this up but have decided we must acknowledge it- Today is our Corona-versary…one year anniversary of the gym closing due to Covid-19.  In fact, if you sneak a look behind the check-in desk our calendar is still marked 3-21-2020.  What a year it has been!  From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you who have stuck by us for it.  Your support, loyalty, and friendship has gotten us through the toughest year in over a decade.  When this thing first hit, “Home Run” Tim wrote up on our Goal Board- “CrossFit > Corona”.  Hell yeah Tim.  And a big HELL YEAH to all of you guys!  

One year ago today WE decided to be the hero in our own stories.  Sure, we were scared, and unsure of the virus, of the political climate, of our economic situations.  We were watching the world go crazy outside ourselves, feeling the enormous stress inside, and knew somehow that it was all wrong.  

But we didn’t let that stop us!  

You showed up- on Zoom, outdoors, indoors…you all showed up for me, for your Coaches, for yourselves.  You put a tremendous amount of trust in 631 and our decade long legacy.  You chose to take your health into your own hands, allowed our Coaches to guide you along the way, and dare I say are much MUCH better for it!  

So here is my call to action to you- now that we are a year deep into this thing, let’s all use this next year to become the BEST versions of ourselves possible.  Like the mission statement says, Let’s live lives that we love in bodies we are proud of.  Thanks for being the best part of it all.  

PROGRAMMING

This week we get to tackle all barbell complexes for our Strength work.  These are meant to be touch and go reps, no rest, and we are looking to build to our heaviest, unbroken set within the fifteen minutes.  Even our Bench day should be unbroken, only racking for a moment to change our grips.  Our Metcons are straight up FUN and will vary quite a bit in the time domain.  Let’s really challenge ourselves this week and have a blast together!
