Some reminders about sweet events coming up:
The CrossFit 818 Total is this Saturday from 10AM until 12PM. We are starting lifting at 10AM, so arrive at least 30 minutes early to warm up and be assigned to a group. Remember that this event is FREE and that you're all invited. If you haven't already RSVP'd on the Facebook event page (or if you weren't included on the Facebook event page), let one of the coaches know so we can have an idea of how many of you to expect. You'll be finding your 1RM back squat, press, and deadlift in that order over the course of about 90 minutes. This is going to be a great time and a great chance for you to see just how strong you are.
The CrossFit 818 Holiday Party 2012 is also this Saturday from 3PM-7PM at Spitz in Little Tokyo. This is a sweet spot owned by our very own Bryce, and it's where we held our 2011 Holiday Party too! It's gonna be a blast (and it'll be the last CF818 social event of the year!), so show up and get ready to make some magic happen!
The 2013 Winter Combine is coming on Saturday January 19th. The Combine is basically a gauntlet of skills tests performed over the course of about 90 minutes. Where the CrossFit Total tells you how strong you are, the Combine will tell you how you do everywhere else. It'll test some gymnastics movements (double unders, pull ups, box jumps, squats, etc), some weightlifting (snatch, clean and jerk, front squat), and conditioning too (running, rowing, etc). Between the Combine and the Total, you'll have a great idea of where you stand and, even better, have the tools you need to set SMART goals for 2013! The Combine is FREE, you just have to sign up. We'll be running it in heats starting every half hour from about 10AM until about 12:30PM. You'll have a chance to sign up for your heats on the board next week! Here's some info from last years Summer Combine if you want some more info .
And in case you didn't notice, starting January 2nd, we'll be having 6AM and 7AM classes every weekday morning. We've had these classes on Wednesdays and Fridays for a while now, so we're now moving them over to Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays too. Can't wait to see your smiling faces bright and early in the morning :)
