Happy Birthday Tessa



Today is Tessa’s birthday. For those that don’t know, this little superstar of ours has been with us for a little over a year and a half. When she first started, she came with little CrossFit experience, but had been a gymnast the majority of her childhood. This tends to be a great base for a CrossFit athlete, and she has proven that as well! Not only did she finish 13th in the WORLD this past year in the CrossFit Open, but she also finished 6th in the 2016 Wodapalooza fitness event. This event is the second biggest to the CrossFit Games, held each year in Miami in January. This year, though still home-schooled, she started working out with the Manatee High School weightlifting team. She hasn’t even had any competition in the local meets as of yet. And she’s only a freshman! It’s really awesome to have her as a part of our community and I thoroughly enjoy working with her on an almost daily basis. Tessa has requested that we do a “fun” WOD on her birthday and this was totally her pick! Happy birthday Tess!!!


1. Coach Doug will not be back in time for Scaps & Abs on Monday morning, so there WILL NOT be a Scaps & Abs on Monday at 10:30. We will get back to the routine on Tuesday night.

2. Our annual holiday party was scheduled for this Sunday, 12/11, as a brunch event. We have decided to postpone the event until later in December. Based on the feedback we’ve been receiving, it’s apparent that you all want a night time shindig, so that’s what we’re going to do! We will finalize the date later this week and let you all know.
