Happy Birthday Nat G!
Pictured above: Pasco during Halloween WOD 2018. What’s your costume going to be for this year’s Halloween WOD?
In recognition of the Metcon today….
Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, “The Chiefs” have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate “The Chief” in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.

NEWS AND UPDATES
FIRST OF THE MONTH: MEMBERSHIP DUES ARE DUE!
Athletes! This is our friendly reminder to you all, seeing as we do not do contracts, that dues are due at or around the first of each month!
Please don’t make us chase you or there will be a burpee penalty! 😉
No, seriously, if you are not on a recurring credit card, please see a coach and pay this month’s dues…if it’s past the 5th they’re technically “late” 😬.
E.C. SYNKOWSKI ON CARBOHYDRATES
The only way to get control of your diet is to understand food, understand how the different macronutrients affect you (no, I didn’t say you had to count them, but you DO need to understand what protein, carbohydrates, and fats do chemically and metabolically when you eat them. Yes, food can be a drug. It can cause addiction and it can help calm addiction…depending on your choices.
If you don’t understand food, you’ll continue to be a slave to every instagram trainer who is dolling out what to do, every app that will “track for you” and every website offering to sell you “what to eat”. Knowledge is power. Take power over your diet!
E.C. Synkowski is a trainer for CrossFit HQ and the author of the article: Carbohydrate Selections: The Right Carb for the Right Job. Check it out!
PLEASE! LET THE REBEL COACHES “COACH”
We know you all have the best of intentions. You want to help your fellow athletes as much as we do! BUT….when it comes to coaching…please let the blue shirts coach. Lately, we’ve witnessed some of you “trying to help” and while the good intention is there, it’s sometimes confusing to the athlete because what you’re telling them is in direct contradiction to what we have told them, or worse, we’ve told them “not yet” on a skill they don’t have the strength for, and you’re encouraging them to try it anyway.
Our coaching team communicates A LOT – text messages, emails re: injuries, where athletes are in a progression….and it works best if the adult program (meaning the CrossFit Class) coaches that have taken the CFL1 and are in the loop with the communications of the whole team are the ones directing the progress.
Please know this isn’t mean to demean anyone’s efforts, but rather, to help keep the athletes on a safe and linear path in their development.
