Matt under the Friday Night Lights

What amazing performances by two Verve Athletes this past weekend.  Emmalee and Matt proved once again why Verve is one of the best CrossFit gyms in the world.  They battled hard all weekend and from the photos we've all seen had an amazing time while representing Verve.  Be sure and congratulate them when you see them.  

Reminder that the 31 Heroes WOD will be taking place next Saturday.  There is still plenty of time to sign up and please remember to invite your friends as we can scale the workout to accommodate anyone that would like to come.  Here is the link to sign up and donate.  LINK

Summer time means road trips.  No I'm not asking if anyone will take me on one with them.  I found a great blog with some cool tips for making those long road trips healthier.  Here's 13 ways to make your road trip smarter and healthier.  Click HERE for full blog.  Here's a few of my favorites.

Stretch your legs (and shoulders and neck).  Stop everyone so often so you can get out and stretch.  I've been on road trips where I've stayed in the car for 8+ hours without stopping and when I did stop, I felt like I'd been frozen in carbonite.  Yep Hans Solo reference.

Don't Forget the SPF.  My arm gets toasted from having the window down.  It's not a good look when only the left side of your body is red so make sure you put some sun block on before heading out on the road.

Keep the Brain Active.  Instead of music try bringing and audiobook or podcast along.  This will be perfect for when those companions of your who promised they'd stay awake the whole time, decide to take a snooze and leave you all alone at the wheel.  

It will be another great week at Verve.  Look forward to seeing everyone.  

Welcome baby Grace!

Congratulations for Beth and Mark on their new arrival.  Grace Ellen was born at 1:25pm weighing 6lbs and 19" long.  Baby and mom are doing well.
