So the open is over and back to business as usual at the box. Everyone did extremely well over the last 5 weeks. Sarah Finishing just outside qualification at 66th and the team so very close just 1 spot out at 31 out of every CrossFit box and entered athlete in europe! If you had said we would do so well we would have been more than pleased with those placings in our first entry to the Open. Having said that being so close but yet so far I’m sure everyone will agree at being gutted not to be going to regionals in Copenhagen!
The little things and a few more reps and a bit more practice of what we suck at and next year we can go that final inch or two. Well Done everyone it has been great at the box for the last 5 weeks onward and upward. Bring that extra focus to the box over the next year and let’s see where that takes us?! Fantastic place to be a part of and thank you guys for making it what it is.

“10.26.11Weight Lifting & MuscleFrom facebook – This picture appears with the caption “You choose, competitive body builder, marathon runner or Crossfitter”
Here at CFB we lift weights. Everyone lifts weights. Most people like it and some… not so much. Most of the people who aren’t crazy about weight lifting are women. No matter what we tell them, the myth that lifting weights makes women “bulky” seems to persist. It’s nonsense ladies. With the amount of weightlifting we do relative to the amount of met-con we program there’s no way your guns are going to win the blue ribbon at the county fair. Weightlifting will improve your posture, prevent injury and give a nice “toned” look to the parts of you that should look toned. Hit the iron hard girls, us guys dig it”

15 ball slams

Due to our move being in the process/bank holiday/CrossFit Games European Regional in Manchester, which we are involved in. The schedule for next week is a bit quiet but we are planning another open air Session @Tredegar park on WEDS evening (weather dependent). Let us know your thoughts? Enjoy a slight break over the next week. Get some work done but use it as a chance for some hard earned recovery, you all deserve it.
Downsy within inches- next time it’s yours Downs!
Helen completing the open WOD as RX’D and Claire who’s showing a huge improvement in sessions lately- keep it up ladies.
