Why CrossFit Matters

Posted in Crossfit Philosophy, Members on March 4, 2010 by Crossfit Sioux Falls

Pete and Broxx just finished a Business Casual Rowing WOD

The lessons learned through physical training are unavoidable. The character traits required and developed through physical training are universally applicable to all endeavors. Perserverance, industry, sacrifice, self-control, integrity, honesty and commitment are best and most easily learned at our gym. Even clients who have found spectacular success in business, sport, war, or love find their most important values buttressed, refined and nourished in rigorous training”
– Greg Glassman

For those of us that do CrossFit. We all know it takes a certain kind of person to do CrossFit.

Simple question CrossFitters: Why does CrossFit Matter to YOU?

MBooms 1st, Sarah Wilde 3rd...nuff said

Last weekend two of our CrossFitter’s Mary Boomsma and Sarah Wilde competed in the South Dakota Power lifting competition.

We are proud to announce that Mary Boomsma placed 1st and Sarah Wilde stepped in for 3rd place in their respective classes. Mary and Sarah both trained specifically for this event in less than one month! Goes to show you that CrossFit will prepare you for anything at anytime. One of the elements of fitness under the CrossFit philosophy is “regularly participate in sports”.

We have a lot of members that will run 5k’s, marathons, triathlons; lifting events, play in recreational sports, etc…

What do you use your CrossFit Skillz for? What is your sport?

Browny and Bolge have lofty goals...CF games need we say more

It’s March…a new month…so you know what thats means…GOAL SETTING TIME!

This month pick 2-3 CrossFit goals to improve on (handstand pushups, muscle up’s, double unders, etc…) We are going to do something new this month to help you progress towards your goals.

Everyday during the warmup we are going to put a few things up on the whiteboard as normal and we are going to leave it up to you to add what you are working on for the month to add to the warmup. So everytime you come in, your goals will be programmed into the warmup.

Ali is always ready to help others during the WODs

Congrats to Ali Bolger aka. Oprah!

Ali has transitioned to no bands on her Pullups during any WOD we throw her way. She is in the Paleo challenge and is really seeing the benefits of CrossFit training combined with Paleo eating.

Keep up the great work Ali! We are very proud of you.

Thank you for all you do.

We appreciate you and all you do for the CFSF community.
