CrossFit for Casey – Last year, we hosted our very first CrossFit for Casey event to raise money for the Kathleen ‘Casey’ Santye Memorial Fund.  The fund supports three ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Association’s patient service programs that were crucial to Erin’s family during her illness: The ALS clinical care center at Pennsylvania Hospital; the Howard I. Abrams In-Home Care Program; and the Marjorie Shimer Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program.  These programs were an integral part to supporting their family during their mother’s struggle with the disease and eventual passing in August, 2009.  The event consisted of an introductory workout for people new to CrossFit as well as another AMRAP for experienced CrossFitters.  The day was a huge success, raising over $3,500 and had over 100 participants, all while bringing awareness about ALS to the greater community.

This year, we will be holding our second annual CrossFit for Casey event on Saturday, May 10th, 2014.  This event will provide an opportunity to honor Casey’s love of fitness and her desire to better the lives of those around her all while providing support to those currently living with ALS.  We will be raising funds through ticket sales, donations, as well as a raffle.  Last year’s raffle included prizes such as Paleo cookbooks, Progenex gift certificates, local New Brunswick restaurant gift certificates, a grand prize package from Reebok of up to $500 worth of gear, and much more!  We ended the day with a barbeque, generously donated by Destination Dogs and Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, two local favorite eateries in New Brunswick.  Our participants shared memories of Casey, swapped stories about their AMRAPs and made new friends.

For those of you competing in the open tomorrow, today is a great day to rest up and make sure your body is ready for tomorrow night. The Open workout will start tomorrow night at 6:15pm, with the first heat starting around 6:30 (same as last week) and we will continue to run heats all night until every competitor has gone. Good luck!

Reminder: there is no Barbell Club tonight.

Skill work (optional): Toes 2 Bar

Thursdays are a programmed “Open Gym” or “REST DAY” at Stealth.

Today, when you come in the gym you can either make up a missed workout from Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday OR work on mobility, a skill, strength or a goal. Rest is just as important. Please respect this and please respect your body. One class per day policy still applies.

If you have any questions on what to do, please do not hesitate to ask one of the Coaches.
