Two reasons to celebrate

We held a poker night at the gym to raise money for FGB4. Thanks to everyone that came out for a really fun event. We ended up raising $225! That’s a huge chunk of change going towards Prostate Cancer Canada.

The second reason to be happy is that Elissa got her first pullup at the gym last night. With the help of MC and Kevin, she got her chin over the bar, unassisted! Watch the video to see her victory dance!

    WOUHOU ELISSA!!!! This is a huge accomplishment!! Don’t you feel like you could accomplish anything now?? Congrats again!!! You’re awesome!! 🙂

  2. Holy shit Elissa! That was a full chin above the bar pull up!!! Nice. Bad news is Kevin will probably push you harder on workouts now hahaha.

    Nice work on the fund raising guys!!

  3. Warmed up then did…

    Five rounds for time of:
    65 pound Power snatch, 15 reps
    Run 400 meters

    24:13

    Post WOD: 75mins of Ashtanga. Not so much power left after snatching and running for nearly 25mins. Lots of recovery poses today.

    Congratulations Elissa! That’s a benchmark accomplishment! And Patrick is right, now that you CAN do them you MUST do them. Your wods are about to get harder… but that’s not a bad thing 😉

    Yay Elissa! Congrats!

    Thanks Pierre for helping with last night and the clean up today.

    I stuck around the gym this morning and did:
    5 rounds of:
    15 power snatches (95#)
    400m run

    Finished in 17:44

    I really liked this workout!
