Crossfit Georgetown’s New Home!

Our friend Sandra shared this link on our FB page and I thought it was blog worthy as well.

I cannot tell you how many people come to Crossfit because they are un-happy with the way they look and want to change….legs too big, legs too small, butt too big, butt too flat, tummy too lose, and on and on… I spent countless years myself working out with an aesthetic goal, so I get it (I have never reached that goal, by the way)!  Over the years I have come to believe that genetics trumps everything (there are probably studies that will back me up on this but I don’t want to spend all day on Google)… This DOES NOT, however, mean that you cannot change your body with a smart diet and exercise but it could mean that you MIGHT not look like you want to look…

BUT…let’s change those goals from image based to performance based…lift more, run faster, run farther, more pull ups, ONE pull up (I know who you are), faster Fran, Helen and Diane…. reach THOSE goals through proper diet and training and you will change your perception of the body in the mirror.

Sure, I would like to look like this (or any of those guys behind him), but it ain’t gonna happen…and I am ok with that!

As we have done in the past, we had a group HERO workout where we honored fallen heros, who were CrossFitters.  This year we did, LUMBERJACK 20.

 

On Nov. 5 2009 at 1:34 p.m., a terrorist named Major Nidal Hasan attacked fellow soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, TX. He killed 12 soldiers and one civilian and wounded 43 others.

SPC Frederick Greene, 29, of Mountain City, TN, PFC Aaron Thomas Nemelka, 19, of West Jordan, UT, PFC Michael Pearson, 22, of Bolingbrook, IL, and SPC Kham Xiong, 23, of St. Paul, MN, along with eleven of the wounded were active CrossFitters in the 20th Engineer Battalion, home to Lumberjack CrossFit.

It was wonderful to have such a huge turnout this year!  Many of our CrossFitters brought family and friends and it was great to meet you all and introduce you to CrossFit Georgetown. We hope you had a great time!  All of the pictures from the day are on our CrossFit Georgetown Facebook Page.  (Link to join is on the left sidebar or you can ‘like’ us directly from Facebook.)

I’m more than pleased and excited to introduce the adorable new daughter to Jason and Erin from our Dark Side class, born this past Friday.

Welcome to the world Miss Graycen Lynn Worff

Jason said the doctors were very impressed and amazed with Erin’s strength during labor and delivery. Yep — a CrossFit Mommy ROCKS in the strength department!!

Jason, Erin and baby Graycen, we are thrilled for you and are excited about our newest darling member of the CrossFit Georgetown family!!  She’ll be swinging kettlebells and doing burpess in no time!

I never saw this coming….

SKECHER AGREES TO PAY $50M TO SETTLE TONE-UP SHOE CASES!

Come on!!! Those shape-up shoes will tone up your legs and butt….as long as you wear them while you are doing heavy squats!! (they didn’t tell you that part). But I recommend a much more sensible shoe, like a nice wedge

weightlifting shoes womens inside

The Drum Beats On!

Posted: 9th May 2012 by wcalem in Uncategorized

I know this is probably “preaching to the choir,” but this is worth the read…

 

Obesity

http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/05/06/why-the-campaign-to-stop-america-s-obesity-crisis-keeps-failing.html

…and for those who won’t take the time to read the article…here was the main take-away for me:

So what should we eat? The latest clinical trials suggest that all of us would benefit from fewer (if any) sugars and fewer refined grains (bread, pasta) and starchy vegetables (potatoes). This was the conventional wisdom through the mid-1960s, and then we turned the grains and starches into heart-healthy diet foods and the USDA enshrined them in the base of its famous Food Guide Pyramid as the staples of our diet. That this shift coincides with the obesity epidemic is probably not a coincidence.

 

SUP comes to CrossFit Georgetown!

Posted: 20th April 2012 by Ginger Calem in Uncategorized

CrossFit Georgetown launches its watersport division with Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Boarding.

Check out this awesome and fun way to get fit:

We’ll have boards for rent very soon for individuals or groups up to six. We will also be organizing some SUP fitness classes! Time to bring CrossFit to the lake!

Finally, the movements that I knew had to come…Double Unders and Muscle Ups…BAM!! both in the same workout. Sure, 7 minutes of burpees is no fun but we can all do them. The snatch progression had some pretty heavy weight but we could at least get through the first round. Last week was grueling but the movements were pretty basic. Now we have two skills that few in our midst’s can perform. So, as we move into spring, Crossfit Georgetown is going to bring back our Open Gym on Saturdays. Starting tomorrow we will be open on Saturdays from 10a-12p (the times may fluctuate, so check Facebook for updates). There will not be a specific workout planned but we will be there to work on skills, provide additional strength work, let you make up a missed workout from the week, let prospective members try out a workout, or….you let us know how we can help you on these days.
