New Month, New Benchmarks, New Faces!

Nichole during the Women's Challenge

Today was the start of September programs and a NEW Benchmark:

"CC Flyers"
400 m run
21 box jumps
12 OH squats
3 rounds

The coaches and staff at Crossfit Central have been working hard to come up with new monthly Benchmarks to replace some of the older ones that have been used for a few years now. Monthly benchmarks are a great way to keep track of your progress and see your growth over time.

There were a lot of new faces this morning, and on behalf of the Crossfit Central community- Welcome!

my Mom aka Future Firebreather!

Speaking of new faces, I have to give a shout out to my Mom- after a year of bugging her about Crossfit, she found an affiliate in Houston, signed up and went to her very first class tonight!

Have you ever talked to someone after they've done their very first Crossfit workout? It's really neat- I heard the excitement in her voice talking about doing a deadlift for the first time in her life, and how she had to do lateral burpees over the barbell and then had to jump rope but she hadn't done that in 20 years! She was worried she would throw up but made it through and her coach was nice and didn't yell at her- all the things we went through, right?!

Crossfit makes you feel like a kid again. Crossfit makes you fall in love with fitness again.... or maybe for the first time in your life. I'm so proud of my mom, and I can't wait to see how this trickles into other areas of her life. Come on, now.... you know it always does!

Have a great week.
