"Fight Gone Lulu"

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.  This is a five minute round from which a one minute break is allowed before repeating.  The stations are:



Over head plate lunges 45# (25#) 


Shoulder to overhead, 45# (33#)

The clock does not stop or reset between exercises.  On the call of "rotate", the athletes immediately move to the next station for a good score.  One point is given for each rep.

Post total to comments.

Progress, sidewalk is being poured.

Front door and window are in

Back door is installed…. coming soon to downtown Denver, CrossFit Verve.

What to expect as Verve grows into our bigger home.

The biggest thing we are excited about with our move is the ability to do MORE.  Our minds race daily with programs (O-Lifting, P-Lifting, Gymnastics, mobility, Yoga etc.), clinics, lectures, seminars, competitions, challenges and fundraisers like Barbells for boobies.  No more will we be confined to our 900 sq feet where barbells smash rower monitors and drywall.  Where going to the bathroom could mean taking your life in your own hands. Where hanging out, has to be on a GHD or reverse hyper machine. Where putting you keys and jacket down can turn into a scavenger hunt.

We are officially TWO years old and we've come a long way.  We plan to have a nice big party to celebrate what a journey it has been, all of you and an exciting future.

So what can you expect? You can expect us to strive to deliver the best training and trainers possible. You can expect to continue to work hard, CrossFit will not get any easier.  You will still need to sign-up for classes and expected to show up when you sign-up.  You can expect to see subtle and not so subtle changes.  You can expect to meet new friends.  You can expect some things to change and other to stay exactly the same.  You can expect us to keep trying to get better everyday, every workout, every decision.  Our commitment to you, to CrossFit and to building a fit community that transforms lives by providing elite functional fitness, so that people may live happier and healthier, will remain our mission.

What will we do first?

    Ummm…. I’m not seeing the pictures of the jacuzzi being installed.

  2. D.Y. :

    “You can expect to continue to work hard, Crossfit will not get any easier.”…. good. Love it.

  3. D.Y. :

    I’d like a wall to paint. It doesn’t have to be much…

  4. Rosa Poetschke :

    So happy for you guys! Wish I was there to celebrate your sucess.

  5. I say we all do section of a wall whereby each person participating has a foot section and they paint something, write something about what CrossFit or Verve means to them. GRAFFITI!!!
    OR OR OR
    Something to do with all the names of the workouts and the people behind them. A tribute area of some sort. I know, for me, I appreciate the connection, honor and respect that the CrossFit community has for those who have fallen in the line of duty. I like how the emphasis is on never forgetting. Tightens the bond between everyone even though some of us aren’t in that particular line of duty.
    Just my 2cents.
    Then we do Fran as the first workout. BOOM.

  6. James :

    How about for the WOD on opening day we all meet at the current location, grab a piece of equipment (2 1/2 pound weight for some, reverse hyper for Matt), and run down to the new location. I map it at 3.9 miles.

  7. No, Matt gets the massive GHD machine. Probably could perch that on a hip while carrying the hyper on the other.
    “No problem. I got this.”

  8. stef :

    TIME OUT!!! You guys know the address? I want to know this.

  9. 7 something?

  10. Greg B. :

    I just want to be included. And I can’t wait to be that guy that throws around oh yeah well at the “Old Box”…..

  11. Oh totally! I like talking about old boxes. It’s funny.

  12. And old wizard’s sleeves.
