Another world-class design by Jake Theno

Lets get excited that our hoodies are coming (expected date of arrival 12/16).  They will be black with grey, red and white custom silk screen and embroidery.  They are 9oz weight, 100% organic cotton, recycled zipper hoodies.  The cost will be $60, with proceeds going to fund new rowers (we don't know where we'll put them).  YAY!

The back reads the 100 words of World-Class Fitness:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit little
starch and no sugar. Keep intake levels that will support
exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts:
Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly,
master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb,
push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips,
splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast.
Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many
combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is
the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly
learn and play new sports. – Greg Glassman


  1. From a friend: For those that don’t know… please spread the word to everyone. On Tues & Wed, Dec. 8th and 9th, every Papa John’s Pizza in the ENTIRE U.S. will donate 100% of all profits to the four families of the slain Lakewood, Washington Police Officers.
    Not that we’re big pizza eaters in this crowd, but here ya go all the same.

  2. So excited about these hoodies – they could come at a better time…. It’s freezing!

  3. Jack :

    Those sweatshirts like they are good for the soul.
    On a side note, does any one know of any good farm shares for veggies and fruits?

  4. Cherie :

    Jack – I’m guessing the season is over, however Donna and Leslie have used one and hopefully they will share that info again. I’ll post it on the fuel page once recieved. Matt and I are getting in on it next year.
    Cheers – CC

  5. Those sweatshirts ARE pretty sweet!

  7. Luke :

    Hoodies look great. Can’t wait to sport em’.

  8. Caitlin :

    Jack, are you talking about a CSA? I’ve used Door to Door Organics and they deliver your food which is awesome. http://colorado.doortodoororganics.com/

  9. Anna :

    Super stoked about the hoodies! Nice job Jake, you keep us looking good!
    Just read the post from yesterday. Wow what a great idea to be positive and FOCUS on what we are capable of. I have a very bad habit of dreading certain movements, only because it shows me what I should be working on. Will try this meathod Cherie, great and inspiring post. Keep em coming!

  10. Rosa :

    If I paid for shipping, would you guys be willing to ship to Texas. I love me some hoodies!

  11. Amy Schaeffer :

    Hoodies do look awesome!!!!
    Thanks for being my partner yesterday Cherie. I don’t think I would have tried 83 lbs – just assuming that I could not have done it. I am really looking forward to continuing to build my strength in the upcoming new year!!!

  12. RX’d 9:54!

  13. greg b. :

    That picture is silly! It is going to look a whole lot different in a few months… Thanx for all the encouragement from everyone. it is why I chose Verve.

  14. Donna :

    Forgive me Chans for I have sinned. It has been 6 days since my last crossfit workout. As per that hysterical video posted this fall, it really is hard to stay paleo/zone in Vegas. It’s also hard to get sleep and exercise – my plans to go to CrossFit Vegas were foiled (by my own doings, but still). I will repent. See you tomorrow at 6 am.
    PS – Hoodies look great.
    PPS – for farmshare info go to http://www.grantfarms.com/home.php
    PPS – Why does it take 2 weeks to lose 2 pounds, but 2 days to gain them? Rhetorical.

  15. Amanda K. :

    any chance those sweet hoodies will be in earlier than the 16th? like on the 15th? love to take one with me to Maine.

  16. Jack :

    Thanks to everyone for the share info… matter of fact thanks to everyone… hears to living the happiness contagion!

  17. Much love and many hugs Jack.
