This week’s athlete shout out: Irma Elias! Irma has be steadily training for a year and has made constant improvements through. A little shaky and a little skeptical at first, she has embraced the training and learned everything she can, sparing no effort in trying to get it just right. She has also gotten her family involved, being a lightning rod for fitness awesomeness in her circle of influence. She is a mainstay in the midday classes and can always be seen laughing, chatting everyone else up and, most of all, dialing in that laser focus to hit her reps just right. Excited to see what the end of Year 2 looks like!

Did you know…? CrossFit Walnut Creek offers “CrossFit METCON”? What is this? A shorter, harder hitting class focusing purely on getting some excellent conditioning in. We warm up, go through the movements and then blast through a tough, low barrier to entry WOD. Want to break up the week with some straight forward conditioning? Hit up the METCON class! http://gph.is/2iIWR9j
We want to get back to recognizing our amazing athlete community! This week, Kristine!! Kristine has been with us a LOOONNNNGGG time, so we have high expectations from her each and every class. She has not settled, is always working towards a new goal, works incredibly hard and has made consistent progress throughout her time with us. Her quiet intensity, strong work ethic and consistent openness to new cues, ideas and corrections to form make her great to have in any class. She is an active part of our community outside of the gym and is supportive to her fellow CrossFitters at every turn. If you’ve never been to a 5am or 6am class, come workout with her and witness her crush it live!
