    First, I was chasing Kevin’s time. Then I figured maybe Krista’s time would be more realistic… Nope, that’s way too fast for me. I’ll go for Marc’s time… JESUS!!! Ok, I’ll settle for Chantal’s time. C’mon! c’mon! AAAARRRGGGH!!! ….nope, didn’t even beat Chantal’s time.

    I’ve been going to Crossfit Moncton for exactly a year now. I’ve seen a crazy amount of progress from a lot of members. Owen, Jeremy, Tim, Gerry come to mind but there are many others. I used to consider myself one of the “fast ones” in the club. Now it seems that EVERYBODY is fast and I’m just barely keeping up.

    To all the new members, if you ever get discouraged because other members are so fast, strong, and you feel like you’ll never be like them, I SWEAR they were all weak and slow like you when they started.

    To Chantal: When did you get so fast?? and unassisted ring dips??? WTF???

    To Jeff: please teach me how to do double unders

    To Gillyon: You used to be my rabbit. Now you’re just like my shadow. I can never catch you.

    To Jamie: When will you ever hit a plateau??? 400lbs deadlift soon?

    To Liam, Marcel and Marc: Please don’t take off your shirt when my wife is around. You’re killing me here.

    1. Jeff

      Happy anniversary Pat!!!
      You’re crazy if you think you are not fast. I’ve been chasing you since the day I started. What happens is our perception of “fast” keeps changing as we get better. We want more and that’s why we keep going back. You’re the ‘target’ for many of us each day! 🙂

    2. Liam

      Yikes! Sorry buddy!
      Wait a tick! I saw your vacation pics. I’m not rocken anything that you ain’t got my friend! *hehe*

      1. Liam

        P.S. Congrats on your first year Pat!
        You’re an inspiration. It was awesome of you to work with Matt tonight to help him get the most out of the WOD.
        Cheers to you!

      2. Patrick

        HAHAHAHA I was teasin’. It’s getting hot in the gym with summer season. Burpees are actually nice when touching the floor without a shirt on 🙂

    3. Jamie

      Happy Anniversary! Thanks for introducing me to CrossFit! We all have strengths, a lot of different body types. At the end of the day it really doesn’t matter about your time and reps as long as you do your best and keep good form so you don’t get hurt. I have to admit, it’s fun chasing you in the workouts!

  8. Gabrielle

    Warm up times 3

    Strength Back Squat 5s
    65-70-75-80-85 (did not go up higher because of pain in my neck, but I believe my legs could have handled more)

    Thrusters (45#)
    Stationary lunges

    Time: 10:32 Man I hate thrusters!!!

    Patrick I love your comment above 🙂 Every day I see improvements in all of our members – I don’t believe anyone going to the “other gyms” could say that!

    Good work everyone! You all make me so proud to workout at Crossfit Moncton 🙂

    i completely agree with Patrick too. there are some folks around the gym that started not long after i did with kevin in the park a few years back that are crazy now. here are a few members i’ve seen have major gains…

    Gillyon – was always quick but i could keep up sometimes with her before – now she’s out of this world

    MC – WOW, from barely a jumping pull up to chest to bar pull ups

    kevin – he’s always been quick, but he’s actually gained weight too (and of course lifts like a madman now too) – i’m sure i’ll be paying for that comment somehow

    Raychell – from first workout pukie to banging them out consistently and with such determination – awesome heart and big gains

    Corinna – a power house, quick and agile with those double unders

    i’ve met alot of new faces since being back at the gym the past few months, and everyone’s efforts are very motivating and keep me coming back for more and pushing harder than ever.

      No worries lady! That must have been a PR for reps though. Right? I really thought you were going to put up that 5th one. I’m glad you really fought for it and didn’t just throw in the towel early on. Great work Tracey, you wow me on the regular!

      Amanda – so proud of you for pushing to the end of that one! You were going low on your squats the whole way through and really thrusting that bar up. Good job 🙂

  12. Corinna

    Thanks for the positive comments Krista. It has been two months since I have joined Cross Fit Moncton with Kevin and I am in love…not with Kevin, but with Cross Fit…smiles…
    It has been wonderful getting to know everyone these last two months.

    Pat awesome comments and what’s this about not being fast, you called time tonight and I was on the 15’s! You are truly a great “Crossfitter”; I remember some of my first workouts when I was having a tough time pushing through, you were one of the guys in my face telling me: “You can do it!”. I saw that again tonight with the push you were giving Matt right til the end!

    It’s funny to read everyone go on about the Thrusters. I’ve never minded them much. But from day one Lunges and I have been mortal enemies. Today was no different. They are my goat fur sure.
    Excellent push Matt! Congrats on all the PRs tonight folks!
    Great work 6:30 crew.

    Tomorrow I get auctioned off at the 2nd Annual Bachelor Auction. Wish me luck. Kevin got me into this! *hehe*

    1. Gabrielle

      Woohoooo on the PR Liam! And if I didn’t have an exam tomorrow night I’d be there to cheer you on, but something tells me you will do just fine 🙂 good luck anyway but I’m sure you won’t need it!

  16. Kevin

    Thanks for the amazing comments folks!

    It’s YOU that makes the gym. The business is just 4 walls and a bunch of equipment. It’s your cheering, swearing, conversations, setting PR’s, and energy that make it what it is.

    I was telling a few people the other day…you’ve all progressed so much since you started. I need to start getting heavier stuff and prescribing tougher wods so it’s not too easy.

    Keep up the awesome work!
