Needs more PR Bell:
This is the PR Bell. It is located on the pull-up rig above where the pull-up bands are hanging. What is it for? PR stands for “Personal Record”. When you achieve a goal or a new milestone, you ring it to celebrate. You slap it, clang it or ring it but the point is you acknowledge your accomplishment and make some noise. What do the rest of us do if we hear it? We make some noise too. Everyone’s PR is equally important in the box. So when you get that first pull-up, muscle-up, change bands, go faster on a benchmark WOD, or lift a new weight; go RING THE BELL! Everyone else should cheer, chest bump, high five and butt slap because it means someone just got more awesome.
Don’t forget the swim clinic this Saturday at 9am! If you signed up then please show or Lindsay and Dustin will have more time to focus on my lack of swimming technique…
