Thanksgiving Day WOD
First and foremost, a HUGE CONGRATS to the dozens of you who hit new strict press 1-rep max PRs on Wednesday! With over 80% of the athletes who came in achieving new max lifts it was a fun day in the gym.
If you've been at Arena Ready for a few years you know our Thanksgiving WOD tradition - the hero workout known as the "Lumberjack 20." The holiday classes are a fun time to see gym friends, hit a tough workout together in big groups, and do the WOD to honor the fallen soldiers from Lumberjack CrossFit.
Please be sure to sign-up for class, and if you know you can't make it please cancel ASAP so someone else can take your spot. We kindly ask that you don't double-book, and try your best not to late cancel or no-show (yes, we can see who does all of these things) - if you're on the waitlist then we consider you in, so get yourself signed-up either way! Help us make it possible for everyone to get their workout in, and for everyone to have a great experience.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
We're all set up and ready for you Turkey Day exercisers!
With that out of the way, what are we thankful for? Hopefully that's obvious.....
Thankful For You
In our world it seems much is taken for granted, many people don't have enough, families are frequently torn apart, and fitness and health become afterthoughts.
We are so thankful that this is our job, that you are our friends, and that CrossFit has become a part of our lives.
We hope that this workout makes you hungry enough to thoroughly enjoy Thanksgiving dinner. We hope that the people you work out with make you happy. And most of all we hope that there are things you can be thankful for today.
