Anyone who wants to have their college team represented in the gym this fall is welcome to bring in a school pennant and we will hang them up on the wall surrounding the white board.
  • We have hired another trainer! Alexis Hulbert will start August 1 and will be helping with bootcamp and some additional classes as well as shadowing Randy and Pat until she receives her CFL1. We are happy to have her on the WPF team.
  • Lost and found will be “donated” at the end of this week so if you are missing something check the basket in the lounge.
  • Saturday, August 4th at 10:30 anyone doing Battle of the Ages can practice the WODs and get some help with strategy and techniques. Coaches will be present to assist as needed.
  • Thank you to all those who have already submitted reviews! The winner of the free month was Robb Cavalluzzi!

    “1776 Team”  WOD – For Time (in a Team of Three):

    As a team, complete a total of 1776 reps of all movements, in any order.
    Multiple partners may work at a time, but everyone must work together on the same movement and move to the next one together.
    The only requirements are that the team not complete more than 200 reps of any one movement, and each team member must complete at least 10 reps of each movement.

Here’s what is happening this week at your gym:

  • Thanks to everyone who came out for the 2nd Friday Night at the Bar and Sunday’s Father’s Day Golf WOD. Both events had great turnout and were a lot of fun. Look for July’s Friday Night at the Bar info to be coming soon!
  • We continue HSPU progression this week as well as de-load on our lifts. We expect a lot of gold stars next week.
  • The Battle of the Ages Competition info has been added to the big whiteboard. We already have several teams signed up. If you are interested but don’t have a team, write your info on the board and let’s see if we can have every WPF athlete who wants to compete on a team!

Remember next week:

  • June 24th Josh will be holding a Nutrition Seminar at 4:30.
  • June 27th Josh’s second Grocery Store Tour

Please sign up for these on Wodify as soon as possible so Josh can prepare.

Here’s what is happening this week at your gym:

  • Friday night, June 15th at 7:00 pm is the second Friday Night at the Bar event – “LINDA”! We will be finalizing the competitors list so if you are interested get signed up by Tuesday. Those not participating can come and cheer the athletes on. It is Bring Your Own Food and Whatnot!
  • Welcome to all of our new athletes: Aidan Loukes, Laura Ripley, Jenna Shaw, Barrett Swales, Brian Jacobson, Mac Huddleston. Welcome back to Adam and Josee Levitt and Kelly Leavell! More athletes mean larger class sizes. Please make sure to sign up for your class in advance. If you end up on the wait list it might be wise to text a Coach and confirm whether or not you can get into the class. Some WODs will require a Coach to restrict the class size due to space and equipment needed.
  • On that note, to accommodate our growing numbers we have ordered more 10 pounds bumper plates, a variety of kettlebells, and 2 more ski ergs!
  • Patrick Leavell won the challenge of the week of 100 bicep curls for time. $10 to spend in GainzVille, Patrick!
  • Many athletes in the gym are looking to put together teams for the Battle of the Ages competition on August 18 in Atlanta. It is 4 athletes from 4 decades. Visit http://battleoftheages.com to check it out and start putting together your team. We will have a sign up on the big whiteboard for people needing team members.

In the near future, look for these on Wodify and mark your calendars:

  • June 24th Josh will be holding a Nutrition Seminar at 4:30.
  • June 27th Josh’s second grocery store tour

Work hard this week and have fun!

Here is what is happening this week at your gym:

  • Congratulations to Coaches Randy and Pat who took first place yesterday at CS&F Summer Meltdown. They dominated every workout and represented WPF well with their 1st place finish. Randy will be participating in another competition coming up this weekend at CrossFit Allatoona. Let’s get a group out there to cheer him on!
  • The athletes who had the fastest Rx Murph times are : Pat G, Larry T, Jason F, Roni F, Kristi C, and Rachel H. Congratulations! But the reason Murph is a favorite workout is the fact that just about anyone can participate. We had friends and family who came in and enjoyed different levels of Murph and felt the same level of accomplishment as those who RX’d it. We had a new WPF athlete, reluctant to participate, show up, and rep by rep chipped away at the big numbers until he did his last air squat. He ran that final mile with such pride. Olivia Durkin said it best as she ran in the door “I did it! I finished!” So, in our opinion, everyone wins Murph!
  • Sarah Tarpley is the June Client of the Month. Look for her questionnaire and WOD to come! Last month’s client, Christine Godwin, has her WOD tomorrow!
  • June 15th is the next Friday Night at the Bar. It is the Girl WOD Linda. We are looking for competitors. Sign up on the big whiteboard and get practicing those lifts!
  • Look on the chalkboard for this week’s challenge! It’s one “for the girls”.​​​​​​​
  • Help us get to 100 Google reviews! Google reviews help businesses build trust and credibility, which are vital factors in the customer decision-making process. Nowadays, consumers regularly consult online reviews before making a purchase or using a service and we want our gym to standout!

Enjoy your week!

Happy Mother’s Day!!

  • Winner of this week’s challenge is Bert Dabney with a 1×3 weighted pushup at 165 lbs. He wins $10 in the store! Have fun visiting GainzVille, Bert! 🙂

Now for a few gentle reminders:

  • Growing gym membership is a good thing but we need your help! As we grow and class sizes grow (bootcamp had 17 people in it on Friday!) we need everyone to be more mindful that scheduled classes take priority. WPF has Open Gym daily except the weekends. We have made it a point to be open every day from 1:00-4:30 so that anyone can come in and workout on their own. Working out during other class times is discouraged when the class sizes are large. If you are in a pinch on a certain day and need to get your workout in during class hours, you need the approval of the Coach running that class. There should be no working out while athletes are Rom Wodding since that requires a quieter environment. We appreciate everyone’s help with this so that we can all equally enjoy the benefits of the gym!
  • Signing up for class helps the Coach plan out how to properly and efficiently run the WOD. Please sign up as soon as you know you will be attending!
  • We look forward to a great week of working out! There might be a HeroWOD in your near future.

Your WPF Team!
