2nd Annual Burpee-A-Thon

Saturday, January 11th. 10:30a-5:30p

There comes a time in everyones life when they are ready for a test — a test of their heart and soul. A real test that takes you to your very core — your soul — and either spits you out or makes you into a new person. Our very own Jon Templeman took that test in April of 2011; SEALFIT Kokoro Camp – the world’s premier training camp for forging mental toughness and a warrior’s spirit, an intense crucible experience modeled off of the infamous Navy SEAL Hell Week; in John’s case, a veritable hell of physical and mental torture that lasted nearly two straight days with no rest. John was led by retired Seal, Mark Divine. It was Mark who challenged John to 3,000 burpees…a feat that to John’s knowledge has only been accomplished to date by one other human in the known universe.

Fast forward to 2013, Mark’s challenge had now become the seed that had blossomed into Burpee-a-thon – a fundraiser in support of  The Green Beret Foundation. John successfully raised $2, 000 while submitting hours, all in the name of those who are sadly no longer with us; our nation’s finest and most elite warrior soldiers.

Anyone who wishes to donate may do so either in person this Saturday between 8:30a-5:00p or online at burpeeathon.com

This event is being sponsored by Georgetown Brewery.

Member Spotlight

Name: Topher (aka Christopher Thomas)

Date of Birth : 08/09/80

Occupation: User Experience Designer at Ritani.com

CrossFitting Since: September 2011

First CrossFit Experience: I started at a CrossFit gym in Roosevelt. In hindsight, the coaches weren’t great at focusing on proper form and safety, but my 1-month stint there introduced me to the rewarding challenge of CrossFit, the Paleo diet, and my own impressive lack of physical fitness. I love a challenge and I was hooked immediately.

Favorite CrossFit WOD: Recently I’ve been enjoying Grace, before that was Jackie, and before that was Kelly. (I’m kind of a womanizer.) And I love-hate the Filthy Fifty when it comes around.

Favorite Lift: Front Squat, the counterpart to my greatest nemesis, the back squat.

Least Favorite WOD:  Anything with Thrusters. Maybe Fran, but I wouldn’t know because I’ve successfully avoided it for 2 years.

Favorite CrossFit Moment: Favorite because they’re easy: AbMat sit-ups. Favorite because they’re hard: handstand push-ups.

Why do you CrossFit:  I love challenging myself. I’ve never been an athlete and it’s exciting to do things I never thought I would be able to do (double-unders, pull-ups, handstand push-ups, lifting really heavy weights and surviving). I’m also in the best shape of my life, which feels good to say in your 30s.

Cheat Meal of choice: Top Pot doughnuts – they are my biggest food weakness by far. I also crave pizza, whiskey, and a good Monte Cristo sandwich.

CrossFit Secret: CrossFit scares the crap out of me – literally.

What do you do on your days off: I play music. I’ve been a drummer my whole life, but I also play guitar, sing, and make music on a Game Boy. I’m in 2 bands: Encourager and Teen Arts – I’m a lifer when it comes to playing in bands. 

Can’t leave home without: Hoodie, phone, earbuds.

Dream vacation spot: Japan and Hawaii are next on my list.
