‘Be Cool…’
Any guesses as to what these two animals did on Friday afternoon immediately after having rowed a combined 8,000 meters with a heaping helping of candy-covered Burpee sprinkles on top? That’s right, they ‘cooled down’ on the AirDyne; the Devil’s Tricycle. Nice work, guys. 

A few ways to cool down, stay agile and speed recovery post-workout is to work a mono-structural movement (jogging/rowing/cycling) for a few minutes -or- enjoy some light foam-rolling. Both are great ways to keep tissues supple and hungry for your next workout.

From JP-

I started CrossFit in 2007, and it’s been love-at-first-WOD ever since. CrossFit was the missing piece that replaced the team sports I grew up playing; the camaraderie, the competition. I was instantly hooked. Two years later I received my L1 certificate and began coaching. I have now been coaching a total of five years while having been fortunate enough to hold a position as the head coach of Crossfit Westside for three of those years. I am now living in Seattle again to pursue the next stage of my career as a Crossfit Coach. I have received a warm welcome back into the community and continue to be grateful for the opportunities I have been given.

The shared experiences are what I love most about CrossFit.  It’s how a hard workout brings people together; the collective struggle. It’s letting our guard down long enough to grunt or scream as though no one is watching or listening. It’s the “ah-ha” moment when you gain a new understanding of a movement. It’s watching someone successfully manage their first double-under, pull-up, or muscle-up. The feeling of accomplishment after achieving a goal or pushing yourself harder than you ever thought possible. A community of supportive and sometimes like-minded maniacs that clap and cheer in support of those who have decided that ‘easy’ will no longer suffice.

All this in mind, I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of moments such as these and hope to experience these same sentiments with you.
