Eva or Change for Change


Eva or Change for Change

It’s been 967 days since moving into 94 Rideout Street. Over that time, we’ve trained hundreds of people in over 3000 workouts. Membership grew from 6 people to over 80 in that time period. Some have come and gone, but many have stayed, reaping the benefits of CrossFit.

As sad as it is to leave behind 94 Rideout, I look forward with great anticipation to training all of you at our new location on 25 Alcock Street.

The last workout at 94 Rideout is one of the toughest ladies out there. She will chew you up and spit you out. Handle her with care and enjoy your last day here.

Five rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
30 Kettlebell swings
30 Pull-ups

Compare to July 26/10

Pierre, one of the original members, still with us today

    Not a huge fan of Eva but last time I finished 4 rounds in 42:39 today I was done 4 rounds a little over 2 mins faster and went on to finish the 5th. I think after round 3 you kind of go numb so 4 and 5 don’t seem as bad?

    I’ll have lots of memories from Rideout St. but looking forward to making new ones!

    1. Chantal L.

      We should make a contest out of that question 😀

      My guess: Coach K, Pierre, MC, and I have no clue for the rest!

    WOD – November 2/11 5 km run (I did the scaled 3 km run)

    time: 22:20 – Kerri and I improved our time by 2:20. Yippee!!!

    This was my last workout in the old gym. I am going to miss it. Joining Crossfit was a new beginning for me. I am looking forward to continued improvements at our new place.

  9. Lora

    WU x 1 (sub ring rows for pullups)

    So happy it was “change for change” today…I didn’t have it in me to take on Eva. Decided to do CrossFit Total.

    Back squat: 150-185-200 (20#PR)
    Deadlift: 250-275-285 (35#PR)
    CFT = 575

    Thanks for the coaching Sonia (and Ed!)

    Eva, I’ll get you next time 🙂

      1. Heidi

        Ditto! That is really impressive Lora. You’re a monster..and I mean that as a compliment, in a really positive, beautiful way 🙂

    1. Corinna

      I second that Sonia. Lora definitely has more PR’s in the near future. Excellent scores today Lora! You are one strong woman!

  10. Kerri

    (3RM) 55×5 – 65×5 – 75×3 – 85×3 – 90×1
    Realized after I finished that I forgot to take my shoes off, which would have helped me to stabilize the weight… I’m sure I could have done the 3 @ 90. Next time!

    Change for Change: (May 10 WOD)
    ~ 46 ~ Double-under for 2 minutes
    ~ 47 ~ Sit-up for 2 minutes
    ~ 32 ~ Double-under for 90 seconds

    ~ 19 ~ Sit-up for 1-minute

    ~ 11 ~ Sit-up for 30 seconds

    TOTAL REPS: 226
    Kudos to anyone who took on EVA today… Not only long but can now see why it was referred to as one of the toughest Ladies!

    Looking forward to the move to the the new gym and all it has to offer!!!

  12. Sonia

    Change for change
    Did wed wod

    4 rounds:
    10 burpees
    20 box step ups
    30 feet elevated paralette pushups
    40 squats
    50 walking lunges

    Time: 27:39

    Leg burner but that’s something I need to improve on so that’s why I picked that one… plus didn’t really want to row for the 3rd time this week 😉

  13. Heidi

    WU x 1

    5 Km Run

    Time = 28:50

    I wanted to run this 5 Km course for one last time, hoping for a new PR…but not to be today, as I missed it by 14 seconds. Maybe after a summer of running, I have a new PR. My legs are still screaming at me from Wednesday’s WOD, but the run actually felt pretty good.

    Really looking forward to Monday at the new gym. Be prepared people….I think Kevin has something extra juicy in store as the 1st WOD…YIKES

  14. Denis

    WU x 1

    I can barely read my notes because my hands and arms are shot!

    Next time will be better, I walked a few times probably worth 3-4 minutes.

  16. Corinna

    WU x 1

    WOD: Eva
    5 rounds:
    800m run
    30 [email protected]
    30 pullups

    Time: 54:52

    Last time I did this WOD, my score was 44:23, but I used the green and yellow bands for round 1 and the green band for the rest of the rounds. My kb was also 35lbs.

    Wicked crazy mentally tough work-out!!!! First time I did kbs with 53 lbs. I am so pround of myself that I was able to finish this WOD under 1 hr as Rx. Thank you so so much Sonia for your coaching at rounds 4 and 5; you seriously got me through this WOD today!!! My hands are torn to shit again, but oh well, I am on a natural high right now, so I do not feel them…smiles…

    I will miss my drives to Loftus St., but I am looking forward to working out at the new location.

    Great job today everyone!

    Good work Ed on this one as well.

  17. Jeff

    “Grinder” (May 5th)

    3 Rounds…
    7 Muscle-ups
    15 Deadlifts (205#0
    30 Squats

    Time —> 14:31

    Got a PR of 4 consecutive Muscle-ups! 🙂 … and the 4th was without false grip.
    Should have used 225# but wasn’t feeling strong today. I haven’t lifted a lot of heavy weight in May.

    So long Rideout Street! Kinda sad cause the location was perfect for me but I’m really looking forward to the new spot and all it has to offer. It’ll be a new beginning and hopefully will bring with it a lot of positive change for CrossFit Moncton.

  18. Gabriel


    WOD: “Eva”
    5 rounds:
    800m run
    30 KBS (53#)
    30 pullups

    Time: 50:00 – 4 rounds and 800m run.

    Pullups will need to be more efficient for the next time I meet Eva.
    Run was OK and KBS where great, broken in 10’s.
    Overall a great way to finish up at the old gym. 🙂
    Great job 6:30 crew!

    All have a great weekend fella CrossFitters and
    see you at the new gym!

  19. Dan

    WOD: Cycle through it

    Complete 3 cycles of:
    AMRAP in 3 min
    4 Ring Dips
    8 V-snaps
    12 Kettlebell Swings
    Rest 1 minute

    Rep: 215

    Great job everyone who took on Eva today. She’s tough both physically and mentally.

  20. Kevin

    I had a really hard time deciding what my last workout should be on Rideout Street. I considered a few, but ended up choosing the Intro WOD. Joanna has called me a hypocrite for having never done the Intro wod. I’ve dished it out to hundreds of people, but never tried it myself. So….

    AMRAP 10min
    5 Pushups
    10 Situps (straight leg + abmat)
    15 Squats

    14 rounds + 8 squats

    Pretty pleased with my results. Situps were the tough part for me. Everything was unbroken, so I’ll have to try it again with faster transitions.

    Great job to everyone today on their chosen workouts. Tons of PRs and buckets of sweat! A great was to leave 94 Rideout behind.
