First please BE SAFE TONIGHT!!!
Reminder come on in tomorrow from 11am to 3pm with family and friends to have them check out the gym, and maybe partake in a easy light metcon to get their first day of the new year off to a great start. Giving your family and friends the gift of a healthy life is something they will have a hard time not thanking you for daily - so, start those loved ones off right with a great day at BattleBorn CrossFit!!! :0)
So, with that said I want to take this time to say thank you to all of you - MY CROSSFIT FAMILY! Your support, friendship, love, and caring have made this the most amazing year of my life. I could not imagine a day without seeing your faces, hearing your groans (lol), or getting that walk out the door hug - means the world to me. Please be safe tonight, and know always I love you, and your health, happiness, and safety are always on my mind.

Also, I know the weather is crazy right now, and people drive like IDIOTS but with adding the strength aspect in we need to get started with class at exactly 15 minutes after - so your warm up is done, and Bergner warm up has also been completed. If you get in late, get warm, and get started. :0)
Strength work should take no more than 15 mins - leaves us 30 mins for our WOD, and cool down stretching.

On December 5th, we need to do two things: participate in the workout (as a display of solidarity with Lumberjack CrossFit) and to reach out to family, friends, and strangers to donate whatever you can.
Let's all show up tomorrow and do this WOD to support the community. I want to see a huge turnout for this at BBCF in order to show our support. This is a HERO WOD let's honor our heroes!
