Good morning CrossFit COMO!
May is a huge month for us and we have a lot of announcements.
A group of nearly 20 athletes headed to Chicago to watch Dylan participate in the CrossFit North Central Regionals. It was an amazing experience! Michael M. was a part of the medical team, Leisa D. was a part of the judges, and I, Mike, was a part of the Media team. Needless to say, CrossFit COMO was well represented at the event!
If you looked at the Whiteboard for this week, you may have noticed a lot of benchmarks are listed. This is intentional! We’re in between our programing cycles and are checking in on our 2014 goals as well as performing a variety of CrossFit Benchmarks. If you haven’t set a goal for 2014, today is the day. Make your goal SMART(Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-Bound). We’ll have a couple of opportunities throughout the week to work on your goals during your normal WOD time.
Friday Night WOD
