    QOD: I LOVE the new spot! Hard to say what my favourite part is. I think I would have to say the WU area. You can come early to WU / work on MOB while a class is still going and you can see whats up though the lounge. Got loads of room to do it too. πŸ™‚

    In a close 2nd, WOD area. I like the lay out of the pull up bars. Makes its easy to go from Weight to bar without crossing path too much with other peeps.

    Oh and the new 35 Bella bars are pretty sweet too!

  3. Mario

    QOD: Personnaly, I like how the extra space can allow for variation or new movements in WODs, i.e. longer stretches of walking lunges, shuttle sprints, team WOD stuff, etc.

  4. Amanda

    My favorite part is all the space.

    I love all the babies in the picture of the 8:30 class!
    Masters class is looking good too, last time I saw it there were only 2 people in it. I’m happy to see it growing!

  7. Blake

    QOD: Where to begin? The flat floors, the space, the lovely hot water heater between the TWO showers, the way the bars and weights are organized… it’s all awesome!

    Quick Mob / semi-warmup
    Group foam roller and lacrosse ball
    Evil barbell calf smashing

    Open WOD 11.1
    AMRAP in 10 min of:
    — 30 DUs (scaled to 10 DUs & 60 singles)
    — 15 Clean & Jerks
    Score: 3 rounds + 12 C+J

    Apparently last time I did all doubles and got 1 frustrating round + change. I like the half & half blend a little better but as winter approaches I know I REALLY need to nail those doubles!

    HIGHLIGHT: Managed 6 unbroken DUs in the 2nd round. 2 shy of my all-time PR and definitely the most consecutive I have ever done in a WOD so we’ll call that progress!

    Great coaching Lora!

    1. Heidi

      Great job Blake. Especially since you were up at the crack of dawn today. Maybe next time you’ll actually WOD with us at 6 a.m. & put it on the new PR Board πŸ™‚

  8. Trent

    Wu x1

    group Mob & Wu

    Open WOD 11.1
    AMRAP in 10 min of:
    – 30 DUs – all unbroken
    – 15 Power Snatches (scaled to 70#)

    Snatches were basically broken up in sets of 5.

    Really happy with my DUs today. Getting some good wrist action on the rope.. πŸ˜‰

    QOD: SPACE SPACE SPACE. Having the pull up bars on one side creates more equal opportunity for wods when they are needed. The old set up it felt like drawing straws sometimes to see who gets to set up close to the bars.

    Over all its my new favorite CF Box.

  9. Kevin

    WOD rx’d
    6 rounds + 5 G2OH

    No pr, but happy with results.

    QOD: Indoor running! And it’s insulated (I’m the only one that will be excited about that)!

    Just couldn’t say away. Had the urge to squat something so I stopped in at the Nooner and used the sweet rig in the warmup area!

    Back Squat x 5
    200 – 225 – 235 – 245 – 255(1) 1RM PR!

    I have to admit it took some getting used to the new format but I can’t deny the mobility has been SUPER beneficial and I am still getting PRs so I am sold!!
