Quote of the Week 4-6-2020

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

NEWS

Welcome to another week of these strange times.  I am certainly missing you guys and can not wait for life to get back to normal.  That being said, let’s all do our best to focus on what a unique opportunity this time is to be with loved ones and focus on ourselves for a change. 

Most of us are at the beginning of week four of a drastically different world and routine; to me, this is exactly the amount of time it takes for people to assume new habits and build new routines that stick. Have you improved habits, or built some that you’re not too happy about? The good news is, it’s never too late to start some healthy, positive habits.  In a time when the world is playing YOLO and eating cheetos let’s all collectively focus on the beauty of discipline. You do not need to take part in the “quarantine 15”. Remember your priorities and if you ever feel you are faltering your 631 fam is always here for you- reach out!

COMMUNITY

Our Virtual CrossFit Class is up and running and going really well.  Everyday at 5 pm join us on Zoom for what I have been calling “631 Happy Hour”.  You don’t even need to work out, just come chat with you 631 pals. You can reserve a spot right from your Zen Planner app or just click the link on Zen Planner and join from your phone.  We are looking forward to seeing you all there! 

PROGRAMMING

Get ready for a really fun week guys.  We have some super unique strength work focusing on time under tension.  Each movement will be four sets of six reps but here is the catch- each set needs to take up one full minute.  This means you will need to set a stopwatch on your phone and count five seconds on the way up each rep, five seconds on the way down.  This is very different from what we are used to. The focus here is feeling what your muscles are doing, building up that burn, and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.  Just like last week, our Metcons are very challenging and of longer duration. Stay tuned to our daily emails and Instagram to see the full movement demos of some new exercises.
