 Sorry for the short post, Andy is getting married in a few hours!!


 Tomorrow's running group (Note from Cynthia):

We're meeting at the Entrance to the Stanford Dish at the intersection of Stanford Drive and Junipero-Serra (Foothill) Blvd. There's a traffic light, as well as a guard gate at the entrance. Be there at 8:30 (allow 5 minutes to find a place to park on Stanford Drive) for a nice 3 mile run with a gorgeous view of the bay.

It'd be nice if people would post to comments or text me at 650 248-9960 if they're planning to come.

Please note that our Olympic Lifting Class on Monday will be cancelled this week. Weds we will be back to normal!



Crossfit Mountain View will be open on Monday for it's first class at Noon...schedule to come.




Andy and Lyda are getting married tomorrow!!!!



Andy and Lyda are very good friends of mine and Ashley, in fact both of us are in the wedding party tomorrow. Andy is the guy who always runs in late to class warms up in 5 minutes hits a workout and is out the door back in his car before anyone can even say a word to him. He's a busy guy doing some incredible tile work (side note if anyone need's Tile work done, he's your guy). Lyda is in the pink dress above, she is what I would like to call "a cyber Crossfitter" probably one of the best around. Lyda is deeply involved with all that Crossfit has to offer online, hopefully after the wedding we can see her in the gym a little more often. 


I am extremely excited for this couple and look forward to tomorrow's wedding and their future together. Please congratulate them when you see them. 



On another Note:

August 17, 2010

I know many of you felt like you had two left feet today with all of the snatch work. Keep in mind that the snatch is in the Olympic's. People work their entire lives to get good at it! It won't happen in an hour. Don't worry, if you had trouble today try and practice when you have a chance.



The 5:30pm Class working hard on the overhead squat.

I apologize for the late post everyone. My flight just got in.



Start getting excited about Crossfit Mountain View! I know many of you live or work there so it will be a great place to stop by and get in a workout sometimes.


RockTape Demo Tomorrow!

Greg from RockTape will be coming in tomorrow at 6:30PM to give a demo.


"ROCKTAPE is the only Kinesiology tape engineered to meet the demands of endurance athletes like runners, swimmers and cyclists. Unlike other products, ROCKTAPE can be used both to apply compression to promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling. Similar to the Kinesiology tape in the Olympics and that Lance Armstrong wrote about in “Every Second Counts”, ROCKTAPE is used by professional and amateur athletes everywhere. "



Workout for Tomorrow:


Go for a new 1 Rep Max Snatch (if you have not performed this movement a lot then stick with a bar/ light weight and do hella (nor cal) reps) 



Snatch 115#'s

Burpees over the barbell 


Even if we need to sub or scale still come in

I love these type of pics.


PLEASE send me pictures from around the world to put up on our site.

Workout for Tomorrow:

I did this delightful treat with Pat Sherwood at the Cert today.

"Shooters Choice"

In 15 minutes:

Every minute on the minute perform 2 Power Cleans at 205# (could be squat if necessary).

This is your "buy in".

For the rest of the minute perform max double unders.

If you cannot perform double unders you have 3 choices:

A) Do double under attempts

B) Do push ups

C) Do air squats

The goal is for max reps.

Today I got around 500 reps and Pat crushed it with 550.


Please sub accordingly.

I'd like to present Crossfit Mountain View:



It's official. Khalipa Inc. which owns Crossfit Santa Clara just opened a new gym in Mountain View!!!!! It is located off of Shoreline and 101. A simply 15 minute drive from Santa Clara and great location for those that live/work in the area. All member's of Crossfit Santa Clara have access to Crossfit Mountain View and vice versa. 

I can't wait to upload new pics and show the transformation into a Crossfit gym of the current warehouse. 

Please keep in mind that nothing will really change too much at Crossfit Santa Clara besides the fact that Alex will be teaching a few less classes. 


Doors should be open by Weds of next week the 18th. 


Get excited!!! Tell your friends we are coming their way. 




Looks like Gary missed Laundry day?????????????? Check out his socks, classic!

We have a ton of positive feedback for all of our specialty classes. Make sure to check them out.




Workout for Tomorrow:


Find a new Front Squat 1 Rep Max 


Perform one Clean and Jerk the 1st minute

2 clean and jerk's the second minute

Continue this until you can no longer complete the task...RxD weight is 135#'s



Please scale accordingly, I want everyone to push hard for at least 8 rounds or so.

Even though the below video is of a snatch and not a clean and jerk which is what we are doing tomorrow. It is still an awesome video to watch. Check out there positions and watch the video a few times.
