“We love the fact that people get so stoked on the crazy workouts we do here at BCF. It is amazing to watch individuals get hooked on something beneficial for their bodies and it has been amazing to see people change! We hope you can relate and we hope that you leave the gym feeling awesome and excited, even on the days you come in feeling hesitant.
However, there could come a time when you may get discouraged because you are not seeing a big change in body composition. Are you working hard but don’t feel like you’re seeing much change?
When folks come to me confused or bothered by this, my first question is “How’s your nutrition?”. Invariably, the answer is “Well, I eat pretty good” or “Im about 80% paleo”.
The next thing I would like to know is if those same individuals are writing down what they’re eating. All of you should have a notebook to log your workouts in. You also may want to think about writing down your food or using MyfitnessPal.com. There is only ONE way to truly understand what your body is doing, and that is to look at what’s going in your mouth. There is NO workout program that will single handedly give you the body you want. Your nutrition will determine your body composition. If you are confused, bothered, or concerned about your body or your performance then look at your food. Write down a minimum of a weeks worth of food and drink and you will see exactly what’s happening. AND BE COMPLETELY HONEST!!!!
Then we can figure it out and get you on the right track:)”

The social WOD committee is turning 1 in September and it’s time to celebrate with a few new committee members. If you are interested in joining shoot us an email at [email protected] and you will be on the list for potential social WOD committee members. For obvious reason we cannot accept everyone but don’t be discouraged, for larger events like throw downs and holiday parties we can always use the help.
The committee requires the following commitment:
Attend meetings every other month
You will be in charge of organizing and leading events
You must attend the majority of events
You will be responsible for helping to promote events at the gym
Unfortunately all of you guys don’t know Jeff S, he was an original member at BCF and he is currently in BUD/S on his way to be a Navy SEAL. He trained for 8 weeks in Illinois before heading to California for 3 weeks of indoc where he lost a quarter of his class. He has made it to week 3 which is Hell Week. All of his buddies have either quit or have been rolled back and only about 1/3rd of his original class remains. Say a prayer that he stays healthy and keep him in your thoughts this week.

Our L2 classes will be starting up soon (we will be changing the name to Advanced CrossFit). We plan to have a test out day every month for which you test out to enter this class. It’s an advanced class for advanced athletes looking to take their fitness to another level, either as a competitor in the Sport of CrossFit, or just to be better in general.

If no one RSVPs to open gyms, they will be canceled! So be sure to RSVP if you are planning on stopping in.
If you leave a pool of sweat, there is a mop and bucket. Use it. It’s not only for coaches.
Final note, when you touch it, you must clean it. If you use it, put it away (cups, tape, boxes, rings, etc). The more that the coaches have to clean up, the more it takes away from coaching.
Summer = heat = humidity = sweat = more to clean. Please keep YOUR gym the cleanest gym around.
