Maplewood, MO Firefighter, Ryan Hummert, 22, was killed by sniper fire July 21st 2008 when he stepped off his fire truck responding to a call.

 

WOD:
“Ryan”*

7 Muscle-ups (Sub = 14 CTB Pull-ups)

21 Burpees

-5 Rounds for time-

*For the burpees in “Ryan” you normally have to jump up and touch a target that is 1 foot above your max. standing reach. We will not require this for today’s WOD. If time allows you can set-up a target to touch for yourself, or you can jump over a KB.

This is not a very beginner friendly WOD. If you are new or if you are planning on bringing in a friend please join us for our Beginner class at 10am. Also, be ready to run through this WOD in heats. Thank you.


FREE Beginner WOD at 10am

14 Kettlebell deadlifts

7 Burpees

CrossFit Mission Gorge's Whole 30 Challenge

Starts on Monday, September 10th and ends on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012. Anyone who wants to participate is welcome, all that is required is a $10 "buy in" that goes toward the top male and female "winner" of the challenge after the 30 days.

The "winners" are not determined by weight-loss or body measurements, but rather by a points system, where each participant reports their points on a weekly basis, and improvement in performance via a "baseline" WOD tested at the beginning and again at the end of the 30 days.

Coach Dawn and Coach Betsy will host an optional 1.5 hour Nutrition Seminar on September 6th from 5:30-7pm, but this is not required. Cost is $40 for the seminar, but again, you do not need to attend to participate. Other options during the challenge will include: a grocery store tour ($10), a CFMG Whole 30 Cooking Class (price tbd), online accountability/support/coach accessibility (free), and a Whole 30 "progress check" meeting at the halfway point (free).

During the week of the Challenge Kickoff, a baseline WOD will be programmed for you to perform and record results and compare to at the end of the challenge. We are very excited to take this journey with you and can't wait to see your progress!

The CFMG Endurance Club

The CrossFit Mission Gorge Endurance class is based on improving your work capacity across all metabolic pathways.  We are not like your traditional training program that tries to get in as many miles as possible each week.  We focus on form, speed, and incorporate distance to build capacity as needed.  Nutrition, flexibility, advice on shoes, and supplemental training is all part of our program.

This Class meets on Tuesdays from 6-7pm. This Class is coached by Coach Betsy Woods. Coach Betsy is an accomplished endurance athlete and is very involved within the endurance community. Checkout her endurance bio.:

Betsy began running competitively in college at Butler University on the Track and Field (distance) and Cross Country Teams (1998-2001). Upon graduation, she continued running in races, and eventually broadened her sport to triathlon. She has competed in many races, covering all distances, (marathon, 1/2 marathon, 10k, 5k, trail, 70.3 1/2 Ironman triathlon, Olympic triathlon, sprint triathlon, and everything in between) over the course of the last 11 years. She has been coached in the endurance sports of swimming, biking, and running by some of the best coaches in the country, including USAT 2011 National Coach of the Year, Cindi Bannink.  In an attempt to build more strength into her training, Betsy was introduced to CrossFit in 2010, and was hooked from the start.  She began coaching athletes as a Level I Certified Trainer in 2011, utilizing both CrossFit and CrossFit Endurance programming and training methodology of reducing volume, evaluating running technique, optimizing nutrition (during and after racing) and adding intensity and power to her own training with much success and personal records. Still very much involved in the triathlon and endurance community, her passion is endurance sports, and her experience training and racing enhance her coaching style. Betsy hopes to inspire, lead, motivate, and educate others with any training/racing goal, whether it is their first 5k or fiftieth.
