    Kickouts were a killer! I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement of the 6amers. Thanks gang. I wasn’t feeling too good there for a moment.

    1. Shane, don’t take your amazing degree of fitness for granted. You are so inspiring. Way to go!

    2. Thanks everybody, I don’t take anything for granted anymore. I have had some eye openers in the last couple years.
      QOD: funny question as of lately I really haven’t been happy at all with what I am doing. I would love to have had the opportunity to have been a professional athlete but I was never pushed for anything like that. Another passion was racing, drag racing or formula 1!:-)
      Also with the new founded love for crossfit being a trainer/coach would be a lot of fun.

  6. Went in this am to do mobility – I had the pleasure to add 44 b-day burpees for Ginette! Have a great day!

    1. That was nice of you to do the birthday burpees even though you weren’t working out. πŸ™‚

    2. I can’t beleive you wen’t in at 6am lol. I’m excited we will be sharing the experience this weekend!

  7. Christine Bachmann

    First I would be a professional supermodel…and then when I’m too old to do that, I would be a professional organizer…the organizer comes from me being OCD!!! πŸ™‚ Happy Friday!

  8. The QOD of the day comes at an interesting time for me as I’ve been thinking a lot about my career. I’ve always struggled with not knowing what to do with it. I only knew that I wanted to help people. I ended up in IT because I didn’t know where else to go. Time was passing by so I had to do something, and IT seemed a safe bet. I’ve even been to career counseling twice.
    Now here I am at 37 and I’ve been in IT for 13+ years. I like what I do, but I had no idea how much I would love being a CrossFit coach and I’m finding myself looking forward to my vacation in a couple weeks so that I can spend more time coaching. So as of somewhat recently, I can finally say that I know there is another job out there that I would love to have. Full time CrossFit coach. I just don’t know if it would ever be feasible or not so for now I will enjoy it part time. πŸ™‚

    1. ValΓ©rie Arseneau

      kinda the same for me. Since Chris is military, we’ve been discussing the possibility of moving and I’ve been looking at it as a chance to redirect my career. I do what I do because I studied 6 years to do it. It was kinda pulled out of a hat and by luck. I like my job and its pretty neat at times but I can’t say I am passionate about it.

      I am just finishing off a certification for work then I want to get my level 1 as soon as its dond

  9. QOD: Owner/Trainer of a CF Box. Laura says she would like to be the wife of a CF Box owner and a stay at home puppy mommy. We would make a pretty awesome team!!!

  10. Mobility

    Thanks for coaching, Marie-Noelle!!

    QOD; While I love owning a real estate company, if I ever had the opportunity I think I would love to be a CF Owner/Trainer.

  11. QOD: If I could make a living helping people to get healthier, trainer/dietician that would be awesome. My two passions aside from my two kids are diet and exercise. One step closer to acheiving my to Toronto today for my Level 1 cert πŸ™‚

  12. Congrats to Maria, and Chantal for tackling your level 1. You two will do awesome. Someday I would like to do that. I think. Lol

  13. Back Squat x5
    65 75 84 95 105

    Sandbag lunges 25# (sandbag resting on a bench not on floor)
    Toes 2 Rings (belly in the way for t2b and kickouts, rings was able to manipulate enough to make it work)


    QOD – Travel writer/blogger

  14. QOD: Last year one of the masters women who did really well at the Games was a former trapeze artist. Maybe that’s what I should be doing! (Interesting how many QOD answers relate to Crossfit. What a great comment on how much we love being at CFM.)

    If the trapeze thing doesn’t work out (I may be allergic to sequins), I really love the writing part of my job and could imagine myself tackling that full time if I could develop enough discipline.

  15. QOD:
    Probably a chef/nutritionist, cooking/food relaxes me and feeds my OCD πŸ™‚ If that failed probably an organizer. πŸ™‚

  16. Well, I don’t want to jinx anything. Nor lose my current job. So, HUSH.

    But, maybe if more people know my goal, then more people will help give me the extra push mid-wod to achieve them…

    Although I love my career as a graphic designer, I’m in the midst of applying for the RCMP. Long story short, I’ve wanted to be a police officer since I was could ride a bike and pretend it was a cop car … I grew up loving art and being fairly good at it and being a tomboy playing sports and begging my parents to put me in army cadets, special combo, i know…. But after high school, I chose the artist route to attempt first and gain some life experience… its been 5+ years I’ve been seriously debating RCMP and I am finally going for it.


    1. I should probably mention thanks to crossfit, I finally feel ready to apply (since my injury)… So thank you CFM πŸ™‚

  17. WOWZERS this was a tough one!

    Mob WU X1 44 Burpees for Ginette! HBD!

    Did kick outs instead of t2b.
    Time 12:49 would of been even longer if I didn’t have the support of my fellow 6am er’s. Thanks everyone for the push to get it done.
    QOD: I would have my own little farm and a doggie daycare….since I can remember it’s always been my dream job. Play with dogs all day and have my own garden that is big enough to help out the community…that’s my dream. I hope I will get there one day. πŸ™‚

    1. You and Laura would get along so well.. 4 Paws Resort will be selling their business in the near future. I will buy it and you two can run it okay? smiles…

  18. Heather (Mum) Wood

    I already love my job of counselling. I also love teaching the Master’s class. Life is great for me.

  19. mob wux1
    + 44 birthday burpees happy birthday Ginette
    foam rolling
    30-20-10 sand bag lunges
    time 7:56
    good luck Chantal &Maria

  20. Opted for lots of foam rolling

    WOD Rx’d

    T2B got hard very quickly. Need to stay on the bar longer.

  21. Mob, wu, foam rolling

    T2B (as toes thru rings)


    Haven’t been doing toes thru rings lately since I’ve been trying to save torn hands and old shoulders for pull-ups and I kinda missed them (see trapeze comments above). So had to break the last round of TTR a bunch of times but the lunges were good once I got the sandbag balanced. Next time T2B for sure.

  22. QOD: Being a professional race car driver or a stunt pilot would be fun careers. But a personal goal of mine is eventually to be self employed at something I love doing which has yet to be nailed down.

  23. Mob, WUx2

    Strength – Overhead Squat x5 from floor
    35 – 40 – 45 – 50 – 55
    Haad some trouble at 50#, but got some great tips from Kevin (thanks!!) and did a few extra reps before moving to 55#, and hit 4 reps there. I feel confident now I can hit 5x @ 55# solid next time

    30 – 20 – 10
    Sandbag lunges
    10 – 20 – 30
    T2B – Scaled to 2x kickouts

    Kick outs (scaled from T2B)

    Time: 11:56

    120 kick outs eh?

    Even though I grumbled a lot I did like this workout. I did notice I am a weak lunger. I am all wobbly like I am trying to do a sobriety test after a few too many.

    QOD: earlier I posted and stated Trophy Wife, and as I still stand by that answer (for real) I feel I have worked hard to become a teacher because I do love it. I look forward to the day I actually get my own class πŸ™‚

    My hat goes off to those of you who did the kick outs today…they looked brutal and you all put up a good fight. πŸ™‚

    I was wondering who has been inspired to start working on their Toes to Bar? πŸ™‚

    1. OH RIGHT!! I’m quite proud of my planks so yes I will mention them. I don’t know how I forgot. I did a 1:24 plank with Lora (because she made me) and then I did another 1:00 plank with her (because she bullied me).
      I am thankful to have pushy friends, they keep me healthy and happy. πŸ™‚

    I’ll answer this one honestly, all you guys with your “wanna be a gym owner”, “I want to be self employed”.. all bullshit.. dream job Porn Star! yup I said it, didn’t say i’d be good at it (beat most of you to this one! lol ).. honestly, had a great arm as a kid and always dreamed that i’d chased pro ball as a career, second was Jenn B with RCMP, or firefighter right there too! but very happy with my life as it is! no regrets!

      1. Wow, you’ve really thought this through. Not sure if it wanes on the hilarity side or slightly creepy side..either way, it’s good to have dreams I guess!

  35. WOD: RX


    Thank you Terry B for the great tips for my toes to bar. I will use this tip in the future from now on when I am no longer to do multiples. I shared this with the 2 classes I coached later and it helped them as well. Thank you!
