CrossFit Amend October Newsletter

We are very proud of our CrossFit Amend team that competed at the Heart of America CrossFit Competition in Springfield, MO last month! They completed 8 grueling WODs over a span of 3 days! Give a sweet high five to Robert Luther, Brian Roberts, Tera Moore, and Melissa Bassham when you see them for all their hard work, dedication, and general awesomeness! Way to go guys!

Congratulations to our September On Ramp Graduates: Kara Alexander, Kylie Alexander, Trinity Bagwell, John Chapman, David Dwyer, Craig Roby, Tiffany Roby, Dena Sparks. Great job guys, and welcome to the Amend family!!

The winner of our September Challenge and Driven Nutrition Whey is.....Angela Lockman!! She worked hard, and completed 3 of “The Girls” this month during Open Gym. Whey to go, Angela! (Sorry, I couldn't help myself.) We had a total of 8 people complete benchmark WODs for the September Challenge. Thank you for participating, you all did great!

The October Challenge will be Participation WODs like last month with a little difference. It could be a partner WOD, team WOD, or, bring a friend and be prepared to crush some fitness! All you have to do is show up to Open Gym and participate in the challenge. (This means it is not a requirement to RX the WOD. We want you to push yourself and have fun!) After completing the WOD, your name will be entered to win a container of Driven Dysrupt! You have an opportunity to enter 4 times this month, so get ready! Challenge begins Saturday, October 7th, 2017 and the winner of the drawing will be announced November 1st, 2017. Good luck!

Beyond the Whiteboard is a fantastic tool to keep track of your progress and fitness level. You can keep track of things other than WODs, so it is a great way to monitor your nutrition, sleep, weight, fish oil intake, etc. You can choose to post publicly, to your fellow Amend members only, or keep your posts private. We love BTWB because it is inexpensive (just $5 added to your monthly Amend membership), it keeps us up to speed on how we are doing individually as well as compared to others, and it's easy! It is available as an app on iphone and android. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Coach Jess and she will sign you up!

Don't forget about our Happy HalloWOD Party! Halloween is creeping up on us, and we are throwing a family friendly party with a WOD thrown in, because...ya know...Crossfit. On Friday, October 27th at 6pm, join us at CrossFit Amend, dressed in your spookiest, funniest, or silliest costume (Something you can work out in or remove easily for the appropriate please!) Bring something yummy to share with your fellow Crossfitters after the WOD, and be ready to throw down! *NOTE* There will be NO 4:30pm, 5:30pm or 6:30pm classes that day. Mark it on your's going to be a fun time of fitness for all!
