Updates from the box….
WV State Championship Online Qualifier- If you registered and complete all 4 of the online workouts, we will enter your name into a drawing to win a free month’s membership at CFH. Thank you to all who have registered for this event. We will draw the winners name the week of August 15. We ended up with 250 athletes who registered for the online portion state wide. We will be sending out the invites for the onsite beginning the week of August 15th. If you are invited, you will only have until August 19th to accept the invitation. After that date, we will open up the onsite invitation to others until we fill the onsite slots. Best of luck to each one of you!
Volunteer list- We will be asking for volunteers to help with the onsite Championship on August 27. Let us know if you are interested in helping out on that day. We have created a Facebook page for all volunteers so we can communicate our needs. We will also need volunteers for the week leading up to the onsite to help with some minor cleaning and repairs around the box. We appreciate any help you can offer during this week. It’s time to show the state of WV why CFH is so special!
Our next Foundations group starts Monday August 15. We will be rolling out a “Back to School” special. For those signing up for foundations during this session, if they bring in school supplies for a donation, the $50.00 foundation fee will not apply. The class will be FREE with the donation!!! So tell your friends and family who are interested in giving CrossFit a try that now is the time! Don’t forget, each time you refer someone new and they sign up for a permanent membership, we reduce your next draft by $25.00.
Tough Mudders- CFH has put together a team to participate in the Tough Mudder ½ in Pittsburg on September 10th. Our start time selected is 11:00am. You can register at https://toughmudder.com. Choose the Pittsburg ½ event. Once you have registered and paid for the event you can choose to transfer to a team. Our team name is CrossFit Huntington and the password to use is CrossFit. We have around 15 people registered so far. We participated in a similar event a few years back and it truly is a blast! We welcome anyone interested to consider joining us!
Protein in stock! We still have various flavors including Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Rocky Road and Cookies and Cream. Please see a coach if you wish to purchase. You can pay through your honor charges by adding it to the sheet on top of the cooler. We also have Glutamine and Uplift available if you are interested in trying these products.
T-shirts and Tanks- Order has been placed and should arrive next week sometime. Cost for all T’s and tanks is $25.00.
Marshall Marathon- The annual Marshall University Marathon will be held this year on Sunday November 6th. We began a 12 week program to train for this that started on Monday August 1. The 12 week session will consist of interval training on Monday and Thursday during run club times and an additional optional run on Sundays. If you are unable to attend run club during these times, I just ask that you make up each session you miss on your own each week. It will be important that you follow this schedule if you want to stay on track and be ready for this ½ Marathon event. I encourage each of you, whether you have completed a half Marathon event or not, to give this a shot. Mark it off of your bucket list for 2016! See Amy if you have any questions. I would love to see a big team from CFH participate and show our support for The Herd and for our city. The link to register is http://marshalluniversitymarathon.com/registrationpacket-pickup/register/. Cost is $80.00.
Team Nay-Nay- Big shout out and congrats to Coaches Tom and Darian who will be getting married tomorrow evening. We want to wish them all the best of luck and hope for a blessed future together! Enjoy your time off next week and congratulations to you both!
Welcome Coach Amelia- As many of you know, Coach Amelia has been shadowing alongside some of the other coaches for a few months now. She is L1 certified and will be coaching on her own starting today. You will see her during the morning hours soon when Coach D starts her student teaching this fall. We are excited to welcome her to our CFH team!
And finally…”Every story has an end, but in life every end is a new beginning.” Enjoy your weekend!
Amy, Jeff & the rest of the CFH Team!
