Congratulations to Zach Hensley, winner of this weeks Fitness Photo Contest, he wins $25 cash!

This is why I CrossFit; Second to that is having a bit if dignity when I take my shirt off.  I started the waterski season stronger than I ever have, skiing 12 passes through a slalom course with no problem.  For the past four years, I have peaked at the end of the season at 34 mph with 15 off.  Frustrating!  This year, I set my personal best; 2 balls at 28 off at 34 mph.  Nailed a 22 off pass and went straight to 28 off.  The turns are pretty and look cool, but the real meat of water skiing to me is the pull across the wake and having the strength to hold on for the acceleration.  Exhilarating really, going from less than 30 mph at your slowest to over 45 mph coming into a wake in a span of 30 feet.  The shorter the line the faster you move and the more you accelerate. So thank you for helping me reach my personal best!  I attribute so much of that to my WOD's – Thanks Zach.


31 Heroes – September 3, 2011.

This nation will remain the home of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.

On August 5th 2011, a chinook helicopter carrying troops in Afganistan was shot down by ground fire.  These troops were heading to a location where other American soldiers were under attack by enemy combatants.   Among the soldiers killed in action, 31 were special forces soldiers.   

On September 3, 2011 CrossFit Verve will be hosting the "31" to honor our heroes killed in action August 5th with a workout in an effort to raise funds for the families affected by this tragedy. All funds received will go to these families through the Navy SEAL Foundation, other like-organizations, & individual family funds.       

The workout promises to be a unique Hero WOD. 31 of America’s bravest have made the ultimate sacrifice for our sake. We can all agree that no workout will ever be enough to say thank you, but among this community it almost seems to be our version of the “moment of silence”, a small way we can honor the those that have gone before us. We hope you’ll join us for this moment of silence.

100% of proceeds will go to families immediately affected through the Navy SEAL Foundation, other like-organizations, & individual family funds.  Please join us as we pay our respects through sweat. 

Register here for a $31 donation and a commemorative T-shirt.
