Thursday Swim Night!

What an exciting past week for PCF!  The first workout of the Crossfit Open was announced on Thursday and The Everything is Everything Nutrition Challenge officially ended this past Sunday.

It’s still not too late to sign up for the Open if you are still on the fence!  Everyone has until 5pm PST today to register and input their results from WOD 14.1 on the Crossfit Games website.  Enter your score, enter the judge that watched you perform the workout, and enter the location (Paradiso Crossfit), and we will verify your score on our end later.  If you have not performed the workout yet you can still come in and find a judge to record your total reps.  We had an epic showing of 98+ athletes complete the first workout at Friday Night Lights; make sure to stop by every Friday night at MDR over the next four weeks to see your training put into action!

If you completed the EIE Challenge, congratulations on 6 weeks of commitment to a higher quality of life!  For some people a nutrition challenge is the necessary catalyst to enact lasting changes towards a healthier lifestyle.  It also helps when their is a huge support group, an active Facebook page and  75+ fellow participants, and some serious cash on the line, $500+ cash and a one month free membership to the first place male and female!  Official Challengers will have until next Tuesday March 11th to retest and input your after data into the Google Doc HERE.  The retest workout is this Wednesday, March 5th, so make sure to practice your toes to bar!  The winners will be announced at the EIE post party on Sunday, March 16th, click here for details.

Let’s keep up the good work!
