10 years!

10 years!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since doing my first CrossFit workout. I remember sitting in my Phys Ed office on my huge desktop computer, scrolling through the CrossFit.com website. Justin Richard and I found the Filthy 50’s, spent a few minutes setting up the stations, and watched WAV movie files on how to properly do the movements. And then we didn’t even finish the workout because it was so hard!

I will be forever grateful for being introduced to this way of health and fitness. It’s given me so much, and I absolutely love giving it back to you, the members.

Thanks for joining me on this amazing journey. It wouldn’t be as fun without you.

For time:
50 Box jump, 24/20″
50 Jumping pull-ups (forearm level)
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood
Walking Lunge, 50 steps
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 45 pounds
50 Good Mornings, 45 pounds
50 Wall ball shots, 20/14 pound ball @ 10′
50 Burpees
50 Double unders

Compare to Dec.4/15

That time Sonia and I qualified for Regionals!

      Correction: wallballs all made it to 10′ or were considered no reps 😉 (copy pasting in a hurry error).

      Also, congrats Kevin on 10 years, and thank you for all you do!!

    We measure and record everything in CFT but it’s impossible to measure the impact you’ve had on the lives of your members and your community. So BIG congratulations Kevin on 10 years of “crossfitness” ☺️. I for one plan to be CFTing along with you for at least another 10 years.

    First time doing it with knees to elbows. Too me some time but I finished it.

  7. Happy CF Anniversary Love! You constantly amaze and inspire me with your dedication to all that you do. Here’s to another 10 years of fitness!

    I <3 that picture. It's still on our fridge 🙂 I wasn't part of that competition as I had barely started CF at the time but being there that weekend sort of started a journey for me. It's been a fun ride so far, lots further to go.

  8. I think I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I just can’t sleep past 5 anymore. Went to 6 AM class.

    Time: 25:36
    Oh my god was this ever a mess, 50 is just too high of a number to keep track of :D, I don’t know if I did 40 wallballs or 60 wallballs, I do know I hated how ever many of them I did do. In retrospect, I think doing 10 rounds of 5 was a mistake .
    Everything hurts now.

    Thanks Shane.

    Gratz Kevin on this fantastic achievement, not only as a business but also as a lifestyle.

    This morning I had been under the impression that I had never done this WOD before. Apparently last year I had attempted to do it with 50 reps per movement and gotten through 364 reps. I’m going to say today was a PR.

    Also congratulations Kevin on 10 years; here’s to many more.

  12. Sad to miss this wod today. It really is one of my faves!
    Congrats on 10 years Kevin! You’ve changed a lot over that time I’m sure, and definitely changed a lot of other people’s lives 🙂
    Mines one!

    I’ve never done this with 50’s, and based on my time, I wouldn’t finish it….but some day I may have the nerve to try. K2E & wallballs were the worst.

    Love that picture, and that bandage looks suspiciously like a box jump injury…yes??

  22. Mike M

    Today is my 1 year crossfit Moncton anniversary

    50 box jumps
    50 jumping pull ups
    50 kettle bell swings
    50 walking lunges ( my knee caps hurt after these)
    50 hanging knee raises
    50 push presses
    50 good mornings
    50 wall balls
    50 burpees
    87 single unders at the 30 minute mark.

    Yes thirteen single unders left or I would’ve finished the work

    It’s been a fun one year with My calendar says 203 classes. I know there are two missing. I did 10 with crossfit Saint John. I did three competitions spring fling with Melanie in the ice breaker division, the YQM competition in the scaled division with Melanie,Alex and baukje, and the one in the summer hosted by CFM ( which I also played 4 ball games between three WODS). I was lucky enough to do one spartan race in Boston (just a sprint which was 10km) and had a blast. I worked hard on Samantha to drag her to crossfit and it turns out she likes it. Overall fun times great year. I enjoy the 7 am and the banter. I enjoy seeing many people do extraordinary things.

    Crossfit goals
    Spartan sprint and super this year
    A 10 km race
    Whatever competitions there are
    A muscle up (2 year plan)
    An over head squat with no pain in shoulders and no clicking in my knees ( 4 year plan)
    And one pistol , I don’t care which leg ( 10 year plan)
    Be healthy enough to achieve 10 more years to make it to pistol territory

    And add a rope climb in there but I’m sure I’ll get that one

    Congrats Kevin on your anniversary. Its a great show you run

    I got so wrapped up in reading everyone’s comments, I forgot to post my own.

    I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve done the 50’s, but it’s more than 10.

    After 10 years, to be able to shave off over a minute from last year, I hope people realize that this CrossFit thing works for the long term. I’ll be turning 36 in a couple months. Science says I should be on a decline. Well fuck you science. I’m not done yet!

    I was disappointed yesterday because I was so much slower than usual on this but realized I got my diet back on track a few days ago and I cut sugar back out of my diet and that may be why I was a little sluggish. I’m hoping, anyway.

    Love this wod. Happy anniversary Kevin 🙂

  29. Shane Hayes

    I was sad to miss doing this Wod yesterday. I am truly grateful for what you have created here. It has changed alot of things for me, not just physically, but mentally. I have made alot if great friends over the years, done things I have never even thought of doing. All in all I think it had helped make me a better person. I love our CFM family!
    Happy anniversary Kevin!!! Cheers to many more!

    1. Shane Hayes

      I also remember my first Wod on Aug 29/2012 first prep class Wod. I am pretty sure Amanda thought I would quit after that. I got to sign the wall after my first 400m of running… But that only fueled the fire more to improve!!!
