Congratulations to those who were in class on Monday and gave our scaled version of 18.1 of the Crossfit Open workout a try.  You guys learned a new skill with the Dumbbell Hang Power Clean and you rocked it!

I consider all of you to be athletes.  We work on all of the above components of functional fitness in each class.  We may not perform them to the same degree or the same intensity as our younger counterparts who are aiming to qualify for the Crossfit Regionals or Games, but you are still athletes.  You are athletes who are focusing more on health and fitness over athletics and performance.   Greg Glassman is the Founder of Crossfit and he would be proud of all you, keep it up!
