BOX BRIEF

  • It’s a new month, that means we need goals on the goal board! Get to it!
  • Bring a Friend Day is this Thursday! All classes are free to try!!
  • Nutrition Challenge will start September 24th and will go 8 weeks long! Mark your calendars

So quite a few people have asked us and we finally have a date squared away for a nutrition challenge. We will be starting one September 24th and it will go 8 weeks. It will finish November 19th. It will be just before Thanksgiving so you guys will still be able to enjoy holidays! We will most likely have a meeting before we kick this challenge off going over nutrition detail, price, how we will score this and any other questions you guys will have. Stay tuned for the meeting but just mark it on your calendars! We’ll keep you guys up to date.

It’s been crazy the last couple months, but we are back on track with our Member of the Month! This month is Justin Rees! Justin has been one of our longer members here at CrossFit Unknown! He is always willing to help out and always puts in the effort and shows up, even with the stresses of running a business! Not to mention trying to drag in the coworkers to get their workout in as well!

What was your first day of CrossFit like? Do you remember the workout?
I started at a box in Seattle after my wife had already been doing Crossfit for months. She started to get bigger muscles than me so I decided it was time to commit. The first workout was an AMRAP with front squats. I ended up with a really sore collar bone because I didn’t know how to do them properly.
What’s your favorite flavor of Ben and Jerry’s?
Carmel Cashew
If you were a vegetable, what vegetable would you be?
A carrot. They taste good, are easy to eat on the go, and can be dipped in a sorts of sauces.
If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
A mink, of course, because they are soft and smell good. Just kidding. I would be a rhinoceros. Rhinos are super strong and have thick skin. They don’t back down from a challenge.  Those are good qualities for animals and people.
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Sushi
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want to have with you?
Sunscreen
Large beach towel
My wife
Favorite workout?
Diane (Handstand pushups & deadlifts) Also I love any workout with gymnastics in it.
Least favorite workout?
Fight Gone Bad. I don’t like anything with thrusters, wallballs, or burpees.
If you could be one actor for a day who would you be and why?
Henry Cavill. He is Superman, he beat up Tom Cruise, and he speaks with an British accent.
If you could have dinner with any 3 people in the world who would it be and why?
Elon Musk – he is a super wealthy entrepreneur that does whatever he wants
Mitt Romney – he has great business and political experience
Jim Gaffigan – it would be a hilarious dinner date
