Nutrition Meeting and Taste Test




The Nutrition Meeting and Taste Test was a fun time for our CrossFit Kids and Teens to learn more about healthy eating and to try some new smoothie recipes. We had four varieties to choose from: chocolate/banana, tropical/vanilla, choco-almond butter, and strawberry/peach. The kids taste tested every variety and voted on the winner - STRAWBERRY-PEACH!

Thanks to everyone who came and participated! A special thanks to the mom's who helped make the smoothies.

Muscle Ups, Med Ball Thrusters, and Musical Medicine Ball Game






Monday's WOD:
4 Rounds for time
7 Muscle Up (Progressions)
10 Med Ball Thrusters

Game: Musical Medicine Balls
Very similar to musical chairs, but instead of sitting on chairs you squat over medicine balls. Athletes who "tie" over a med ball must go into a "squat off" in which the athlete who does the most squats in 30 seconds wins and gets to continue in the game.

Halloween Workout Huge Success!!!!!


The CrossFit Kids Halloween Challenge was a HUGE success! We had 13 kids & teens come out for a pre-Trick-or-Treating workout! They used their nutrition knowledge to sort food pictures into "Protein," "Carb" and "Fat" categories for points, rowed for calories and navigated an obstacle course, and finally raced with pumpkins. More pictures coming soon. Congratulations to Christine and Chase who came in first place and Spencer and Caleb who took second.
