As always, we will be doing Murph this Memorial Day. Official registration is open on the MDM website. If you sign up and make a donation you get a MDM 2013 t-shirt. We will be kicking off the workout at 9am. Depending on how many people are there for the WOD we may send you out in waves!
We have been toying around with new shirt ideas and want input from our members. We are planning to have a fourth of July shirt out in time for everyone to represent during Coronado’s most celebrated holiday! We also have two samples for a new shirt with our logo and a zip up hoodie sample. Please comment below with the number (patriotic shirt) and letter (fireball shirt) that you like the best. Also, please indicate tank or t-shirt. We may have options for both but want to know where the majority interest is. These shirts will likely not be stocked at CFC. We will have them available for pre-order soon so please stay tuned if you’re interested. On the hoodie, please let us know what color sweatshirt you think would be best. Considering a slate blue color with white writing but that is up for negotiation. Commenting below does not mean you’re ordering a shirt, it just means you’re helping us decided which one we take to print. Thanks for your input!
After telling everyone about Pete’s Paleo for the last few weeks we are excited to announce that we are now set up as a drop off site. You can get your first order this Thursday, April 18, but you need to order before Tuesday at 5pm. Typically you need to order by Monday at midnight but they are extending the deadline so we can participate! Buy Pete’s Paleo here! Please note that you will need to pick up your food by 7pm Thursday as food will be stored in a chilled cooler. We don’t have our fridge yet so we don’t want food left after Thursday. We are still wokring on getting a fridge and once we do we will ask that you pick up your food by Sunday at the latest. Please let us know if you have questions and don’t forget to order by Tuesday at 5pm!
Join our CrossFit Coronado Amazing Race Team Wednesday, April 17th, from 5-8pm, at McP’s for our fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation. We’ll have beer and cookies available for a donation. All money goes directly to supporting kids with life threatening illnesses get their wish. So come drink a pint, and grant a wish. There’s really no reason not to! Please extend the invite to anyone you think may want to come. The more people the more we can help with kids’ wishes! We’ll be on the patio (which is all ages/kid friendly).
Most of you have already met and been in classes with Hank and Josh. Both of these guys bring great knowledge of the technical pieces of CrossFit, especially the Olympic and barbell lifts. We are excited to be bringing two more awesome coaches on board. First up is Liz Nazarenus. Liz has been coaching with us for about a month and comes to us from Colorado. She brings great energy to each of her classes and will push you to be your best. Next is Dave Kaine (or DK as many of you already know him). Dave is one of the original CFC members and our Social Director. He is excited to be taking on this new role and will be coaching his inaugural WOD Thursday, April 11, at 5pm. Please welcome all of our new coaches!
Help us in welcoming Stella Ivy Leppelmeier, the newest CFC baby. Stella was born April 5, weighing in at 11 pounds 14 ounces and 22 inches long! Mom (Julie from 6am) and baby are doing great! We can’t wait to meet her!
On Saturday, March 2, we held the first ever Open House here at CrossFit Coronado. With both new faces and familiar friends, the whole day was an event of epic proportions! Thanks to everyone for coming by. If you weren’t able to make it, check out our galleries for pictures of all the food, folks and fun!
Most of you know we have a team participating in the Amazing Race on April 20th. This awesome event is through the Make a Wish Foundation and will grant wishes for 3 kids with life threatening illnesses. As part of our efforts to raise money for the cause, we are going to be having a garage sale at CrossFit Coronado on Thursday March 14 from 8am-10am. We need YOUR help! If you have any items that you no longer need or simply don’t want, please bring them to us so we can sell them. ALL money goes directly to the Make a Wish Foundation from our team. You can start bringing items in anytime. Please put them in a bag or box and mark it garage sale. If you have larger items we would love to sell them too but we’d appreciate it if you could wait to bring them to the gym until next Wednesday so we don’t overcrowd our space. We will also have an order out soon for some of Shelly’s famous cookies and you are always to make a straight donation to the cause on our donation page.
Ever wanted to participate in a Ragnar race but haven’t known how? Now you can. Ragnar is a 200 mile team run. There are currently 4 spots open on Amanda’s team and we’d love to fill them with 4 of you from CrossFit Coronado. This is the SoCal Ragnar relay run from Huntington Beach, CA to San Diego. The team is made up of 12 people. Each team member will run approximately 16 miles but split into 2 or 3 parts (so not 16 all at once). Cost per person is $135 for entry fee. Other costs will also include two team van rentals and a hotel for the first night. They’ve got a great group of people so far and it will be sure to be a blast. Email us at Info@crossfitcoronado.com if you’re interested and we’ll put you in touch with the team!
We are excited to invite all of our CFC members, their families and friends, and the Coronado community to our open house on Saturday March 2. We will have several classes for all ages and abilities as well as raffles, giveaways and FREE healthy food samples from Pete’s Pre-Made Paleo. More details will be announced later this week. For now, plan on saving the date!
