Fighting the Funk

Over the last few days it’s been cold, wet, windy, generally nasty, and it’s only going to get worse as we get deeper into winter.  Don’t let the weather hold you hostage, trapped inside.  Exercise is one of the best ways to fight through the winter funk.  It’ll get you moving, get you warm, and give you a good endorphin rush.  Keep signing up, and showing up for classes.  Don’t cherry pick workouts, and don’t balk at a little bit of inclement weather.  Neither snow, nor rain, nor gloom of night stays you from the finest fifteen minutes of your day.

  1. Thanks for the reminder to stave off the funk, Eric!! I’ve always got it pretty bad in the winter, but I have to say, last winter was my best on record, and that absolutely had to do with starting CrossFit!

      1. Sounds good. Which rope do you want? there is one for $3 and one for $24.

        Supposedly the $24 is the “fastest rope in the world,” which sounds like it makes things easier… which sounds a little bit like “NO REP!”
