Some mentions for the day-

Firstly a belated happy Birthday to the quietly always improving Claudia Alonzi-Lewis who managed to sneak in and out under radar before we knew it was her Birthday saving her and the class any Birthday Burpees. And her Bitthday present from Celtic CrossFit, her first pistols! Boom! 

Same for Steph also getting her first pistols tonight, comfortably and just before she heads off on Holiday. With other half Luke possibly getting his final WOD tonight before he relocates to Essex for a new job- so we wish him all the best in his pastures new.

Good luck to Katie Doff collecting her Exam results tomorrow.

Top Work again tonight for the always impressive Sam and Liam absolutely destroying the OTMs tonight. 

Best DUs shown by Jo also completing all sets of double unders with ease.

Ben Black with consistently the quickest DUs across the whole workout. 

And James for perseverance whilst his DUs deserted him mid WOD only to regain his composure and finish in style.

Well done all on another awesome #WarriorWednesday

The awesomeness continued this evening- with some very busy classes and the typical awesome atmosphere.

Shout out to Steph-Her first time RX’ing a wod combined with excellent tekkers on the push press. Great community spirit all round tonight with plenty of support from everyone on a tough wod. 

Another mention yet again for the always improving Rhys with 31 unbroken pull-ups. Another Celtic Warrior who just keeps getting better.

Beach WOD 

“Beach WOD!!!!” Our GPP cycle continues, with our athletes getting comfortable in the uncomfortable! Not just using odd/ different implements within their training recently, but training in different environments, on different surfaces and at different times of day! Ensuring our Celtic Warriors are able to perform to their full potential whatever the situation! 
Today we took our Saturday SweatFest on the Road to “Coney Beach” for the second year in a row. It is not an easy feat to get a group of cross fitters to travel 40 miles lugging a load of equipment just to workout! But this epitomises the attitude of our community! Everyone was up for the challenge, everyone pulled together, carried equipment, offered lifts and despite a few hiccups with directions, everyone got there ready to train! 

It was also lovely to welcome back two of our favourite members to work out with us! Firstly, Kirsten, one of our earliest members who represented us in team competitions such as London Throwdown! who due to work and family commitments had to move away, but is obviously not lost her engine! Kirsten is an amazing runner and body weight ninja, so there is no surprised paired with the ever improving Shazza she smashed this workout! 

We also welcomed back Angharad, another life long Celtic Warrior, that was really starting to get into competing before she also had to move to pastures new, due to work commitments. It’s great to see that she has continued to work hard at her new box and is obviously reaping the rewards! She is stronger and fitter than ever! It was awesome to catch up with you both ladies! We all miss you loads! 
Then there was the workout…. 

In pairs…. 

1x Beach run into sea swim/ run 

42 x Dumbell Snatches

1x Beach run into sea swim/ run

18 x Dumbell Snatches

1x Beach run into sea swim/ run 

18x OH Sit Ups 

1x Beach run into sea swim/ run

Amazing determination and encouragement in the sun by everyone! Especially as the tide was going out, which meant the runs got further each round… 😰 (This of course was planned, reps decrease/ run increases 😏) 

Ross and Matty lead the way with the best time, but everyone did incredibly well! Erika and Maria smashed every run and their movement was superb throughout! I think Owen just pipped Iwan in the first father son battle, but Joe definitely smashed dad Doffy in their family competition! A final mention must go to Anna McNally, her enthusiasm and attitude is contagious, she even wanted to do an extra run once we had finished! “Crazy!”I hope everyone enjoyed getting out of the box and into a different environment for the day!
