Merry Christmas. I hope everyone’s holiday is safe, relaxing, and filled with joy and cheer.

Nothing of any cosmic importance, just wanted to say that I feel really lucky to work with you all. I have been around CrossFit for quite a while and the group we have here at CF West Santa Cruz includes some of the hardest working and phenomenal athletes I have seen. More importantly, it includes some of the finest human beings I have had the pleasure to meet.

Well, there you have it folks. A sappy bit of emotion from the guy who holds the stopwatch in an iron grip and constantly shouts “lower” and “extend the hips” and “knees knees!”, but it’s the way I feel.

So happy holidays everyone.

Workout:

There isn’t one, it’s Christmas doncha know.

But, if you just have to get in there and do a WOD, or if holiday excess propels you, pick your favorite and strongest movement and your least favorite and weakest movement and work them. We will be open from 10 to 2. I’ll be there about 12 doing Annie and working some heavy lifts.
