Kiley Bond joined us as our 6th CrossFit Verve member on November 1st.  Since she has been with us, we have seen tremendous improvements in her strength, cardiovascular endurance, stamina and power.  She's leaving us for the United States Air Force, which I guess is a decent enough excuse.  Kiley, we hope that we've prepared you for basic and that you show all those tough guys what you're made of.  We're super proud of you and all you've achieved at CFV – see you in September!  Make sure you wish Kiley luck in her new adventures today.

The CrossFit Regional Games are opening reistration at 9am today.  It is the first 100 men and 100 women that get to compete.  The cost is $100 and it is expected to sell out fast. Click here Rocky Mountain Regional CrossFit  to register for the games. 

Quote from the FAQ's page of the regional games site; 

I am not sure if I am good enough to compete, should I still sign up?

The Rocky Mountain Regional CrossFit Games are open to everyone.  We will be scaling the workouts for all ability levels.  There will be many ability levels present at the Games.  One of the greatest things about last year's Games was the amazing athletic performances you were able to see.  The Games this year are going to be no different.

  21. Alan :

    Anthony….DOES THIS MEAN YOU ARE NOT LEAVING US?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Cherie :

    Milk ,
    Matt knocked me up. I will be inflicting all the pain that I was going to on myself on Verve’s athletes. Aren’t they lucky.
    How’s the gym coming?

  23. Milk :

    WHAT!!!!!!! Congradualtions guys. Well that’s a great excuse.
    We get the keys this week and will hopefully have a soft opening in about two weeks. Just signed up for our Southern California Qualifier, so I was going to hit Matt up for any suggestions on training for it. Since both of us are firemen, I want to know how he trains while at work. Anyway, great news and good luck with everything. If Matt has some time, can you have him email me? Verve family just got dangerous people, watchout for that child to redefine the fitness community.

  24. Joylyn :

    Tiffany–you are gonna be a tornado by then! Right on.
    Alan–you R good enough, you are nice enough, and gosh darn it, we all like you too.

    I am really excited about the number of athletes that will be representing Verve at the Regional CrossFit Games. I am very proud to say that I’ll be a member of that team. Even if you didn’t register for the Games, you will train like you signed up for the Games. We won’t change the WOD’s, but we will add a few more cookies from time to time to dial in movements and loads. Take the extra ten minutes if you have them to participate in the cookie of the day.
    Milk, I’ll give you a call to discuss the training regimine at work. Hasn’t varied far off the 3-on, 1-off path of doing main site WOD’s. If the equipment is lacking, I look through the archives to find on that is horrible and I get FF Gaines to do it with me. Much love Gaines.
