Reminder: Please park on Loftus or in the back, and use the front entrance. 

I hope for a lot of things.

I’m hoping that you will all love our new space.

I’m hoping that you’ll attain many new personal records.

I’m hoping that CrossFit Moncton will grow to new heights.

I’m hoping our community will flourish.


Three rounds of:
75 pound Power snatch
Box jump, 24″ box
75 pound Thruster
Chest to bar Pull-ups

“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.

Compare to June 9/12

    Wow very hard one to get any kind of pace, second set of burpees I almost puked… Lol
    Been very congested lately and I couldn’t breathe hardly at all once it started, even the C2b’s felt hard for me this morning and that isn’t usually the case. So I Hope next time I can do better! 🙂
    Great first Wod to celebrate the new gym and christen it with some sweat this morning!!
    Great job 6 amer’s, and great class Kevin!

    1. Wicked score Shane! Its a cardio killer for sure. I finished the WOD over an hour ago, and I’m still sweating like crazy.

  11. I just want to send a round of golf claps to the members who after great amounts of dedication and efforts went beyond their comfort zones and participated in the “legs for literacy” events yesterday. I couldn’t be a happier coach while reading all the updates on Facebook yesterday! Hard work really paid off, and we all knew you could fulfil these goals you guys set out for yourselves! I know it’s not Friday, but my question of the week (not just for those who ran but to all CFM members) is: what are some short term goals you guys have?! (Doesn’t have to be fitness related)

    1. Valérie Arseneau

      Its a little more of a longer term then short term but I do want to do more running. Chris and I found some aventure marathons that simply look amazing! Ex: Great Wall of China Marathon, South Africa Safari Marathon and Bagan Temple Marathon. These have been added to our bucket list.

      On a more short term goal, get out of debt… and do a Mucle Up.

    2. I want to improve my 5K time. I’ve never finished one in under 40 mins, so my goal is to finish one in 38 minutes. 😀

      I’m going to be training (in a more committed way) for the Resolution Run 5K coming up on Jan 1!

      1. There are SO many CrossFit related ones I want to accomplish, but that means I need to focus on them!

        – box jumps = get up to 20″ box
        – skipping = seriously, it’s not THAT hard is it? I’m just making it harder than it is!
        – pull ups = I fear the band situation and cling to my rings for ring rows. But I need to stop that!

      1. I feel like if I tried to do a #100 snatch, my arms would snap off at the elbows, like a Mrs. Potato head.

  12. Mob / Group Burg
    Skipping Tabata (managed 5 unbroken DUs, not a PR but it’s been a loooong time)

    WOD: “Hope”

    Three rounds of of 1 min stations of::
    — Burpees
    — Clean & Jerk @ 75# (wrist = no power snatch lifts)
    — Box Jump @ 24″
    — Thrusters @ 75#
    — Chest to Bar Pull-ups
    — Rest

    Score: 191

    — Kept weight at 75# but subbed Clean & Jerks instead of Snatches due to wrist.
    — Box Jumps saved me score-wise. Disappointed Thrusters felt the same at the new gym.
    — Started 1 min later than everyone else as I was admiring the carpentry in the new washrooms when Kevin yelled “Go!”

    C2B thick yellow band
    Power Snatches at 35lbs
    Box Jumps at 18in

    Total reps: 167
    I really like Wods like this. When you get tired at one station, it is time to change to the next anyway.
    I loved the new place ( even though I was out of sorts with all my OCD routines!)
    Congrats Kevin and Joanna ( and Happy Birthday).

  16. Heather Colleen

    Happy birthday, Joanna!! 🙂

    New box, new determination, new commitment to posting my WODs online. It’s interesting, feeling like you can’t hide your successes and failures – hugely inspiring and humbling all at the same time.



    Power snatch 55#
    Box jump 20″
    Thrusters 55#
    C2B pull ups green & pink

    Score: 167

    Can’t think of a better way to christen the new box. (I will *eventually* learn new routines…right??)

  17. m+wu
    WOD – Hope
    power snatch @ 35lb (lots of trouble today with the squat, so way to shallow)
    box jump @ 12″
    thruster @ 35lb (weight could have been heavier…but again trouble with squat)
    ring rows

    Total 188

    Note to Kevin …remember this is coming from a person who HATES new things and avoids change in routine…I love the new box….I don’t know how you guys pulled that off in that period of time but AMAZING job !!!

  18. First…there will be gushing….

    I’ve been in to the new gym and have seen pics of various stages of set up, but when I walked in today, it just blew me away with how awesome it all looked when it was completely pulled together.

    What struck me most, though, was how Kevin beamed about it on the tour! The countless hours of planning and hard work are SO evident – and everything done with great care, thoughtfulness, and true joy!

    I may have cried a little and mentally clapped my hands at seeing all the details! CFM 4.0 (1 = playground, 2 = Rideout, 3 = Alcock, 4 = Baig Blvd., right?) is AH-MAY-ZING!

    Excellent work, you guys! 🙂

    Box jump, 24″ box >>> Step ups on 12″ box. I jumped a few times but still don’t trust myself on box jumps.

    75 pound Thruster >>> 35#

    Chest to bar Pull-ups >>> Ring Rows

    Wow, scaled the cr#p out of that!! But felt sufficiently DONE by the end of the 3rd round, so it’s all good, in a sense. 🙂

    Wow, that was quite an hour at the gym today!! I love, love, love the new gym. It’s beautiful, thank you. I feel like we’ve hit the big leagues 🙂 And holy crap that was quite a wod. I can say I liked it now that I’m home. 🙂

    And wow I love the new 35# bars!!

    1. Kevin, my hope for you today is that your beautiful new gym is all you dreamed it would be. It has certainly surpassed my expectations!

      1. Dammit, post fail again. Snatches were my downfall and I CAN’T believe I’m sayingthis but the burpees were the break in this wod. Has hell frozen over?

    Boo! 1 rep less than last time. If I had only known, maybe I could have squeezed out one more. Was fighting dizziness bad – not sure it was from the workout, the paint/mat fumes or the excitement. LOL!

    Started on Power Snatch this time. Last time started on Box Jumps.

    Great work 5:45 crew! Jam packed class but we still had tons of room! 🙂

    1. I don’t think you are allowed to get 217 reps (at Rx no less) and say “boo”.

    2. And Happy Birthday Joanna! You got a new gym for your birthday. That’s going to be tough to beat next year 😀

    3. Before I started this WOD…I thought “Lora will get more snatches in one round than I will get in three.” Hehe.


    4. If that’s what you do when you aren’t feeling well, I can’t imagine what you would do with perfect conditions. Great score!
