Rest/Open Gym/No CF Kids

Sunday September 21, 2014 Paleo Challenge Day 20/30

!!!NO CF Kids today!!! Varsity returns tomorrow


The Paleo Challenge is winding down. Keep it up, every day counts so stay true to your plan. We currently have $1400 in the pot. If we get everyone to pay into the program we will have $1600. A few folks are going to win some serious scratch. Terri McCabe has generously donated a free private Pilates session at Core Fitness to the female and male winners. Thanks Terri!!

If you aren't busy today, join us at CrossFit Roselle to cheer on teams in "The Best of The Rest" comp.  We will be competing in 3 WODs starting at 8:15 and wrapping up around 2.  Come on up and support the athletes competing.  It should be a great day.

We are proud to announce we will be hosting a fundraising WOD and silent auction October4 for Creativets. Creativets is a non-profit created by a very dear friend of Ashley, Richard Casper. "CreatiVets’ mission is to provide disabled veterans with the opportunity to use art therapy, music, and creative writing to address the psychological and emotional needs that arise from combat- related trauma. Our goal is to provide artistic resources and accessible space to veterans in order to foster self-expression, enhance coping skills, manage stress, and strengthen their sense of self through the healing power of music, writing and visual art." We are working on donations for a silent auction and hope you will share this with your friends, CrossFitters and Non-CrossFitters alike to join us October 4 to help support this incredibly noble cause. We will be doing a WOD in teams of 2 and will have mini WODs throughout the day. If you offer products and/or services you would like to donate for our silent auction please talk to Ashley or John about getting involved. If you have family or friends who you know have a product or service to offer please reach out to them and ask for support. Creaviets has 501 (c) (3) status and donations are deductible to the extent of the tax code.

When the Box is open for classes the Box is open for you to work on auxiliary work. Strength, skill, gymnastics. The back (from the turf) is open to practice outside of WODs. We encourage everyone to come in with any free time and get extra work in. Just check in with a coach and let them know you will not be joining the WOD. But please, yield to athletes performing the WOD. They have dibs on gear.

Trodo has released the WODs for the October 18 Trodo Games.  Registration is open to all CFB athletes.  If you are willing to be brave and put yourself out there to see your competition potential, get a team together and join us in Niles October 18th.

As always, any comments, questions or concerns, please share with us. Please email, Chris at for feedback.
