We are fundraising for our K4K friends. $20 gets you a headband or $50 gets you a shirt! See yesterday’s post for details!
Each year, we partner with Kettlebells4Kids to help raise awareness and funds to end child homelessness across the nation. If you would like to contribute to our fundraising effort, please find our team page here. We’ll be fundraising for the remainder of the month. Funds raised by our team stay in Ohio to help children right here.
There’s cool swag available too! A $20 donation gets you a K4K/OKM co-branded headband (just like the ones we sold last month) and a $50 donation gets you a K4K t-shirt. (In order for K4K to manage shirt orders, please register on the fundraising web site when donating, and don’t forget to join our team!)
The significance of the number 9 in this workout is that 9 is the average age of a homeless person in America.
Join us in support of this cause tomorrow morning!

To tip our hats to the yoga tradition of 108 sun salutations on the Solstice, we will perform 27 sun salutations as our warmup/mobility each day for 4 days this week. If you aren’t able to join us all 4 days, 27 sun salutations is a great at-home workout!

Saturday 6/11, 9 & 9:30 am
Join us at both locations for a wod to celebrate Rick Green’s birthday!
We are excited to have over thirty people registered for our first-ever CrossFit Open Intramural! Teams have been drafted and are listed below, as well as some details you’ll need to know as the Open kicks off.
First things first…our teams need names! They’ve been listed A, B, C and D below but get together with some of your teammates and select a name. If your team has people from both locations, we’ll take nominations from both and get a team vote.
Next up…the schedule. Workouts will be announced on Thursdays starting this week, and must be completed by 8pm on Mondays. You do not need to complete the workout with your team in order for your team to receive credit. But you MUST complete it by the 8pm Monday deadline.
Most weeks, we’ll do the workouts as a group on Friday nights, and the locations will alternate between Gahanna and Lewis Center. However, this first week (2/26), there’s a Krav Maga test on Friday night so we’ll be doing 16.1 in regularly-scheduled classes Saturday morning 2/27. 9am in Gahanna, 9:30 in Lewis Center.
Fridays 3/4 and 3/18 will be in Gahanna at 5:30 pm
Fridays 3/11 and 3/25 will be in Lewis Center at 5:30 pm
Now…how do we get points? Your team will earn one point for each person who completes the workout before the deadline. Your team will earn one point for anyone who completes the workout as RX and finishes in the top 5 in the gym. And there will also be 5 “spirit” points available each week, to be awarded at the coaches’ discretion. Spirit points may be for things like PRs, teamwork, or best-coordinated team outfits.
What’s at stake? Well, bragging rights of course. And perhaps, a very special treat. You’ll just have to work hard to find out!
And finally…THE TEAMS! Don’t see your name? Have no fear! You can choose to join us up till the close of the first deadline.

Join us tonight in Gahanna at 5:30 pm for a WOD led by our good friend Chris Padilla (the handsome one on the right) from Big Muddy CrossFit in Bismarck, ND! We’ll go out for dinner and drinks afterward to Buffalo Wings and Rings on Broad Street.
Friend and fellow gym owner Mike Walters suffered multiple strokes several weeks ago. To show our support for his family, we will participate in a WOD that they will also be doing as a fundraiser to help with Mike’s medical costs.
Read more about Mike’s story here, and come prepared to show our CrossFit community solidarity tonight! Or, attend the fundraiser at Chalkdust tomorrow.
