Yea Burpees!

Posted by Andy Petranek

This is a video of our 6:30pm class doing as many burpees as they can in 1 minute. Michael Stanwyk (in the foreground on the left) topped everyone with 24.

Athletic Standards

A friend and fellow CrossFit coach, Dave Werner, of CrossFit North, Seattle, Washington, came up with these standards to help people figure out the age old question, "Just exactly how fit am I?" I find it to be a valuable resource, a great reference for determining where you are, and a great tool for setting goals.

You will find that you have certain areas you are pretty good in, and others that need improvement. I suggest that you work on improving the weaknesses. Like a knight going into battle, you are only as strong as the weakest point in your coat of armor. Train your weaknesses until you haven't any.

In Their Own Words...
Our kids, eight and ten, have been going for six months now and they LOVE it. This is a real workout/conditioning class and they are super proud of their accomplishments. This is a great addition to any sport that your kids may already be doing. They are the strongest they have ever been and they look forward to going....In addition they learn about healthy eating. - Jackie T.
