Crossfit 103 July Newsletter



The hot weather finally moved in; the gates are now up every day; and the vibe in the gym has been amazing.  


Let’s all be thankful for our “Big Ass Fan,” that does yeoman’s work cooling us down every day.

A reminder to stay consistent during these dog days of summer. When you miss a week it often turns into two weeks, and then three. If you are going on vacation, find a local CrossFit affiliate and drop in. It’s always fun dropping in at a new gym. Just find the gym closest to your vacation spot and email them prior to coming. Sometimes your first drop in will be free, and at some gyms they will charge you a minimal amount, like $20.


A friendly reminder that the only official form of communication for any and all membership-related inquiries is by emailing Marisol will answer all inquiries sent there. She doesn’t bite.





Here are some of the things you may have been a part of, or missed, over the past 30 days:

Coach Matt has fulfilled a long time dream and successfully summited Mt. Rainier in Washington State. At 14,410 feet and heavily glaciated, Rainier is an iconic active volcano in the Pacific Northwest. Great work!



Matt also received a coveted invitation to become a judge at the CrossFit Games later this month in Madison, Wisconsin.



Congrats to all our members who participated in the Bonefrog Challenge. Designed by Navy Seals, the Bonefrog is a difficult Obstacle Course Race.
