Coach Paul’s Weekly Update

The Holiday Party was a tremendous amount of fun! Thank you all for joining Jeff and me for the festivities. I only wish that I had more of an opportunity to spend time with each and everyone of you.

Once again, a special thank you to all of the coaches who led sessions during my brief vacation! Jeff and I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday.

The Barbell Club sessions have been a tremendous success! Coach Jay is in his element when leading the sessions. The last trial session will be held THIS Tuesday, December 20 from 6:30 to 8 pm. Let Coach Jay or me know if you’ll be attending. The official launch of the Barbell Club will begin after the first of the year. Coaches Nick and Jay will be announcing additional details soon. 

The 2017 Team Competition is less than a month away! The event will be held at the box Saturday, January 14. A reminder that teams may meet at the box to practice during any gym hours, i.e., you may attend anytime a session is being held. I do ask that, just like with Open Gym, you stay out of the way of members who are attending a regularly held session.

We have incredibly talented and wonderful coaches at CrossFit Surmount. To show my appreciation for all that they do I am treating them to a wonderful meal at Primal Foods THIS Thursday, December 29. So that all coaches may attend, the 6:30 pm session that evening is cancelled.
