Thanks for an awesome turnout at the Holiday Potluck on Saturday. We are certainly not short on amazing cooks and some questionable pool players (you know who you are). I always appreciate all the time people put into cooking and we never seem to run out of food, so thanks for all the leftovers. Now on to the latest news:
I was hoping to make this announcement Saturday at the potluck but we didn’t end up having the intimacy I was hoping for. This is probably some of the most exciting and proudest news I have ever had the pleasure of reporting here on this blog. Many of you have already gotten to know the newest addition to the 215 staff, Cassie Haynes. I’m excited to officially announce that Cassie is joining us as Lead Coach for CrossFit 215. What does this mean? She will be teaching the majority of the general group classes, as well as come clinics and on ramps. Cassie’s background and experience is certainly an amazing addition to our team and I am more than excited to head into 2014 with her leading our coaching staff and continuing our unification. Having her a in a full time coaching role is going to have some great impacts on you the members of course.
The first of these changes is some schedule changes. In light of our growing staff, we’re now able to expand our weekly class schedule. Starting in December, we’ll be adding an additional morning class (exact time TBD – likely 7 or 8am), and we will also be beta testing some other addition classes. We’ll also be staffing an additional coach at select evening classes to ensure proper coverage for our most crowded sessions. You will also be seeing some specialty classes, in addition to the clinic series, during the week. More information on that to come by years’ end.

• Crucible Prep – Saturday, November 30th @ 6-9am
Coach Kyle will be offering a second seminar this coming Saturday. It’s open to all members, regardless of whether you attended the first session. If you’ve been doing CrossFit for less than 6 months, or if you’re just unsure about whether this clinic is for you, feel free to talk to me about it. Because of the length of this session and it’s intricacies, there will be a fee of $10 for unlimited members, and $20 for all others.
• Rowing clinic – Wednesday, December 4th @ 5:30pm
I will be coaching an upcoming rowing clinic for those looking to improve the efficiency
of their stroke, focusing primarily on mechanics rather than endurance. This session is being offered free of charge for unlimited members, or $10 for all others.
Also in the works are a number of additional new clinics focusing on various movements, including double-unders, mobility, squatting, and Olympic lifting Levels I – III. Stay tuned to the blog for details on dates and sign-ups.

Army and Navy will be here again and 10 members of our comp team will be defending our honor against these two teams. We NEED ALL HANDS ON DECK to come out and support. We could use some help for volunteering but we are bringing in outside judges so all 215 members can hang out, drink and support our team. You are not going to want to isa this event so mark your calendars. Hope to see all of you then.
