Hi all –

What an incredible weekend at CFW.  Saturday’s turnout for Fight Gone Bad 8 was awesome.  Thanks to your generous donations, we raised over $1500.00 for the Jimmy Fund. The Fall BBQ was a great success as well. Thanks to everyone that stopped by. It’s always great to see you guys outside of the gym. We look forward to more parties in the future with everyone. Lastly, shout out to two of the original CFW members (6 years and running) Michael Walden for completing the Philly half marathon over the weekend, and Dr. Jerry Huo for finishing his first ever triathlon with zero training outside of CrossFit. Congrats to both of you!

Intro to Barbell:
The next Intro to BB Class will be held Monday, September 26th at 7pmPlease sign up on MindBody to reserve your spot.

Battle of the Boxes-
Saturday September 24th:
BOTB is this Saturday and I am excited to be sending three teams of CFW members to compete. I hope to see many of you at CFW Pelham cheering each other on, it really is a great event to represent and support our team. All I ask is that you come dressed in CFW gear. If you don’t already have any, stop by the front desk and check out what we have, including the new CFW Snapbacks! 
Do we have anyone that can help out for BOTB? We still need some volunteers, the more the better. I promise we will keep you fed throughout the course of the day.

 

30-Day Paleo Challenge:
– Join the 30-day Paleo challenge at CFW beginning October 1st! Nutrition is one of the foundations of CrossFit, and learning proper nutrition can improve many facets of your life. While there is not one single diet that is ideal for everyone, the Paleo diet promotes foods that are low-glycemic and anti-inflammatory in nature. Therefore, we have found many people to have great results when eliminating many of those foods from their diets.

– Since this is a (friendly) challenge, there will be a points system, the rules for which will be released soon. There will also be a benchmark WOD completed at the beginning and end for you to gauge improvement. There is a $30 entry fee, which will go towards prizes for the winners!
– Please contact us to sign up!


Accessory Work:
For the next 30 days we will be releasing a free 2x per week template for the CrossFit community to take a look at what we offer from an accessory work standpoint.  This generic template can be customized to fit your specific needs, and fill in the gaps to blast past plateaus and old PRs.  Hope you enjoy it. http://crossfitwestchester.com/accessory-work-9-19-9-25/
Thank you,
