Hello CrossFit Moncton Crew and potential new members,
CrossFit Moncton will be relocating to an indoor location on 94 Rideout St. The facility is approximately 1100 square feet, with male and female washrooms, and plenty of parking. As nice as it is to workout outside, it’s getting cold, so having a ‘home’ will be great!
With good news, there is also some bad. I will only be able to take 16 people as members. Allow me to explain.
With the facility being 1100sq ft, individual space becomes an issue. The CrossFit Moncton programming will also be changing (it will be more like the main CrossFit site WODs), so individual attention is very important. I want to make sure proper technique is being executed by all members.
The new CrossFit Moncton will be open October 2. For the month of October, it will be open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 7-9 and Saturday’s from 9-11. There will be 2 classes per day, with 8 clients per class.
In November, the hours will be extended to Monday to Saturday (when soccer season is over).
With a new facility, the price will be increasing as well. It may seem high, but the quality of service will reflect in the price. For an unlimited monthly membership, it will cost $95. For a 100 punch pass, it will cost $900. Compared to other Canadian CrossFits (avg. $148/mth), I believe this is a fair price.
Because October has 2/3 the amount of available days, the monthly price will reflect that. For the first month, the price will be $60. It will be the first 16 people to pay that will get the spots.
A CrossFit Moncton Fundamentals class will be offered as well. It is 5 sessions that will teach you the common movements of CrossFit and work you into the main workouts-of-the-day. For those who have come to CrossFit Moncton’s Park Workouts, I am making the Fundamentals class optional. For anyone new joining, this is a prerequisite to joining CrossFit Moncton. It will also give new people an opportunity to see if CrossFit is for them. The Fundamentals class is $175 for 5 sessions.
I want to thank those that have supported CrossFit Moncton by coming to the workouts in the park. Without you, CrossFit Moncton would not exist. Outdoor sessions will continue until September 27. If you have any remaining passes on your punch cards, I will take what value is left and subtract it from a monthly membership or a Fundamentals class.
I hope to see many of you at the new indoor location once it opens!
Working out at night will soon come to an end. We have secured an indoor location for the fall in the Moncton industrial park. The official opening date is yet to be announced, but will be posted within the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more info and your chance to get in on the action.
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Today marks the date of the tragic event when the 3 planes were highjacked and the Twin Towers were brought down. There were 24 Canadians killed on this date in 2001. It would be an honor to give each one of them, one minute of our time for the following workout.
Tonight’s workout will be decided randomly with the use of the Hopper Deck. What is the Hopper Deck, you ask. It’s an extraordinary deck of cards that has a different workout on each card. You shuffle the deck, get someone to pick a card, any card, and Presto! we do that workout.
See everyone tonight, rain or shine!
The workout was “Kelly” (thanks Herman). We scaled it down to 4 rounds instead of 5.
30 Wall ball
30 box jumps
AND a new record tonight! We had 18 people come out for the workout! Great to see lots of new faces. Hope to see you all again on Thursday!
Start by drawing the top card and do that many reps of the suit. Example, if you draw the 9 of Hearts, you’re doing 9 burpees. Face cards are all worth 10! The goal is to get through the whole deck as fast as you can.
“NOW combines the self-improvement appeal of an inspirational book with the adrenaline-rush of a thriller. Phil shares his dynamic philosophy, as he takes readers along routes leading from the Yucatan Jungle to the depths of an underwater cave to the top of an erupting volcano. Along the way, you’ll meet fascinating people living out their dreams from the soldier in Iraq to the Hollywood film actor. Stories include a mailman who takes a shot at pro hockey, a nun trying for a triathlon record, an 89-year-old barefoot water skier, a young surfer who won’t let paralysis keep him off the board, and a husband who helps his musician wife to finally shine in the spotlight.
This is no armchair adventure book. It is an urgent and inspiring call to action. Phil provides a clear, step-by-step guide to help you create a personalized “List for Life”. Packed with practical suggestions and examples, and driven by Phil Keoghan’s fresh, compelling ‘NOW’ philosophy, this is a book that will help us all seize our dreams.”
This is what I have to say…
Read it! Go out and buy this book. It is filled with so many touching stories that motivate you to want to get off your ass and just do it. What is it? Whatever you dreamed of. It helped me create a list of things I will do, and I find myself checking them off sooner than I thought.
To give you an idea, here’s my list… bungee jump, visit Ireland, go back to NYC to revisit all the art museums, run the Dobson trail, attend a CrossFit cert, open a gym.
I’ve been able to check off the last three within the last few months, so it’s time to add some more.
This book isn’t just about making a list…it’s about DOING what’s on your list. There is no room for excuses.
Starting next weekend, Saturday morning workouts will be at 9am.
Today’s workout is plain and simple. No fancy bells and whistles. No equipement required.
BUT, that’s not all. I have 2 rowing machines I’m also bringing with me, so if you stick around, you can try a 500m sprint. I’ll show you some common flaws and get you rowing more efficiently for better times.
“Performance is directly correlated with intensity. Intensity is directly correlated with discomfort.” – Greg Glassman, CrossFit co-founder with wife Lauren
It’s finally here. I’ve been keeping this WOD a secret for too long. Sometimes, I look around at other affililate websites to see what they’re up to. I recently came across CrossFit Emerald Coast and one of their workouts. I immediately said to myself “We’re doing that!”
So here it is…”My Aching Balls”
3 rounds for time of:
400m run with a med ball
15 med ball deadlift shrugs
15 med ball front squats
15 med ball cleans
15 med ball jerks
See you all tonight!
Someone should tell MC that running with her eyes closed is dangerous
Congratulations to Ed's mom, Cheryl, on her first WOD
