Crossfit Santa Clara's newest members, Jerry (above) and Mark (below). Jerry is in the military and comes to us from a pretty athletic background which allowed him to pick up a kipping pull up in 2 minutes and bang out a pretty good mini Cindy. Mark has done some Crossfit in the past with our buddies up in SF. He came in today and banged out 10 rounds of Cindy in just over 15 minutes which is great for someone who hasn't worked out in a while. Both of these guys will be killing workouts soon! If you see them around please welcome them, welcome to the family!

Crossfit OneWorld Fish Tournament (On the Concept 2 Rowers) this weekend

The tourney is on 1/31/2008. Registration starts at 6:00pm. The drawing for the brackets is at 6:45pm. Fishing starts at 7:00pm. Buy in is $10. Winner takes the entire pot minus 10% given to the high scorer for the entire tournament. Winner also takes the Fish Tournament Belt...pictures forthcoming!

This is a pot luck food event. One World will supply utensils, plates, napkins, water, and a keg of beer (cuz you can't fish without beer). There will be a jumper for the kids.

FISH TOURNEY RULES:

Names will be drawn from a hat for bracket matching. Some people may get a bye in the first round. The final eight will be seeded based on high score from the round of 16. The top seeds in the round of eight, four and two will get first choice of rower. Any malfunction of rower will result in the fisherman rowing on the same rower his opponent used. This is a friendly and fun event. If you are a sore loser, don't bother fishing!

NICOLE FOX (John Fox's daughter) TOP 10 MISS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barbara! Barbara! Barbara!

Nice job today at the Diablo Crossfit Affiliate challenge!!!!!! I know we all had a great time working as a team to accomplish a task. These challenges are great opportunities for any type of Crossfitter to push themselves mentally and physically. I hate the fact that some people feel embarrassed of feel as if they don't have a place at these competitions because you absolutely do. Whether you are an elite Crossfit athlete or just started last week these challenges will only push you to become stronger. I urge everyone to participate in as many of these opportunities as possible. I am yet to hear someone say that they felt uncomfortable or out of place, thats the beauty of Crossfit! Crossfit's ultimate goal is to get you guys in the best shape of your life. We are a judgment free community that urges people to take the next step and become more fit. So please, the next time an opportunity comes up to workout in public, take the opportunity and push yourself to new limits to help you reach a new level of fitness.
