NPGL and 15.1


The 15.1 announcement is tonight!  I’ll update the website as soon as I’m able with the exact workout, but just a heads-up that there will be a delay as I will be coaching until late tonight (there is a new athlete consult tonight at 6:30pm if anyone is interested in a free Introduction to CrossFit session).


Friday will be the first of 5 Open testers, and I’m very excited to see how everyone does!  Remember to simply trust your training, and don’t start changing anything drastically about how you fuel beforehand or prepare—now is NOT the time to experiment!  Just come in, do your best, leave it all on the table, and enjoy the community we’ve built together.


Unfortunately, Arthur and I will not be able to join you all tomorrow evening for the opportunity to test, as we will be traveling to Baltimore to attend the NPGL’s Pro Day.  We were both fortunate enough to get invited (as was Jake, but he is unfortunately unable to attend with us, even though we all know he would smash it!) and are happy to utilize the opportunity to represent CFD nationwide and in a completely different sport other than CrossFit.  This opportunity is another testament to the hard-work, continued pursuit of higher education and excellence, and standards we uphold here at CFD, and I’m honored to be a part of it.  It will be a very fast-paced weekend for us both, but my intent is to get back late Sunday night and be up bright and early Monday to coach the morning classes as well as test 15.1 with Arthur so that we may join the CFD family by bringing our numbers to the table.  Next Friday and for the remainder of the Open, we’ll be right there alongside you all to battle it out together!


Wish us luck, and I will be thinking of you all (and following the leaderboard closely, no doubt!) to see how everyone does!  I’ll keep you all posted as best as I’m able about Arthur and I’s progress this weekend as well via the CFD Facebook page.


It’s already been an exciting year, and I can’t wait to see what else 2015 has in store for CFD!
