Our second checkout for equipment loans is complete and we had a large amount of dumbbells, kettlebells, boxes and PVC’s go out the door. Thanks for showing up and hope this helps serve you well for the duration of this stay-at-home order.  Can’t wait to see everyone back in the gym!

Crossfit announced the “Support Your Local Box” fundraiser

Registration opens tomorrow for the above event and we are programming this each Friday! Please sign up and register, regardless of any donation. It’s free and I think with everything going on it’s important to show as realistic a number of those participation around the world as possible.

I had originally programmed the 2012.1 Open WOD of 7 minutes of burpees to a 1 ft. target overhead this week but have pushed it out since I can see this being one of the events.

FT: Air Squats, Double Unders, Air Squats and Double Unders

With the latest Stay-at-home announcement from the Gov. it appears we will remain closed another week.  Tentatively hoping for being able to reopen on 4/8.  We are assessing what this announcement means for our gym and trying to understand the impacts. We will be communicating our plans for April and beyond as we learn more.

We also wanted to fill you in on how we are trying to continue to offer services and value to our members:

  • We are programming a daily workout everyday that can be done at home. We are publishing it on several different places (this website under “workout of the day”, our Instagram account, and also on beyondthewhiteboard.com).  Most of these are bodyweight workouts and have modifications in the notes.
  • We have been including WOD movement demo videos from YouTube sources in the beyondthewhiteboard.com app for anything unfamiliar and to show good technique and form.
  • We have loaned out equipment for our members in the form of either one dumbbell or one kettlebell, one abMat, and a jump rope for anyone in need. If you have been unable to receive this and want to check out equipment please let us know and we can coordinate a time with you.
  • Our gym community has come together through our Facebook group sharing videos of their at-home workouts, and we encourage everyone to continue this!
  • Links to these resources can be found on the bottom of our website.

Please hang in there with us and continue to check back here for updates, daily at home workouts you can do and other CrossFit related info.   We truly appreciate your support!

Equipment Checkout was a success! If there is anyone who needs to still draw a piece(s) of equipment let us know. We will have another pickup window on Friday for anyone who missed it. Stay tuned!

Thanks to everyone for your support during this unprecedented time.  We’ve been fortunate to hit 11 years in operation and have been profitable from day 1; and I’ve never been concerned about our gym and the future of so many small and medium size businesses as I am now. Without each and every one of you there would be no SnoRidge CrossFit community. Michelle and I are overwhelmed at how many of you have reached out to us during this closure.

COVID shutdown Day 2:

Do this WOD from home!

Exercise Demo: The Burpee

Equipment checkout update:

Here’s the equipment plan! We are going to allow members to “checkout” either one Kettlebell or one Dumbbell as well as one jump rope and one abMat. We are not checking out any other equipment at this time. We will have one pickup slot tomorrow Wednesday from 5-6pm only.  If you already have workout equipment please leverage that so we can take care of more people.

Please read the below rules and follow them!

*We are following the WA state and King County guidelines for no more than 10 people gathering and also enforcing social distancing.

Date and Time: Wednesday 3/18 from 5pm-6pm ONLY

Process:

  • Rule #1: If you, your family member, co-worker, or anyone you have come in contact with is sick or has been tested for COVID-19 then we are not going to let you sign out equipment. Please stay home to protect others!
  • We will only allow one person at a time into the gym to sign out the equipment.  No one else (coaches too) is allowed in during this window.
  • We will allow one at a time to come in and choose the piece of equipment (one Kettlebell or one Dumbbell, one abMat and one jump rope if needed)
  • Michelle will bring the piece of equipment to you while you complete the sign out sheet with me at the front counter
  • You will then have to leave so the next person can come in
  • Social distancing is in effect (6 ft. apart), please wait in your car if possible
  • We have cleaned all equipment already and will have thoroughly washed our hands to hand it to you
  • You will use a “clean pen” to sign the sign out sheet and put it into the “COVID bucket” so I can clean them later
  • If you need a jump rope then you will be given a pair of disposable gloves to put on and then can size a rope to your height (gloves are to prevent touching all the ropes)
  • If you have your own rope or other items in the gym you may then go get it

When we are allowed to reopen we will publish the “Turn-in” time in which you agree to bring the equipment back. We will want all equipment back prior to reopening if possible. You MUST clean it thoroughly before bringing it back into the gym.

Any damaged, lost, or broken equipment will be billed to you via your normal SRCF billing method for replacement cost. Please take good care of it and don’t drop KB’s or DB’s just like in the gym.  Try not to jump rope in your driveway, sidewalk or street.  Use your garage or a mat if you have one.

We hope this allows people to have a piece of equipment so we can do swings, ground to overhead, or other similar movements in addition to bodyweight exercises.

I can’t believe we have reached the Zombie Coron-Apocalypse and have to do it this way but we need to do the right thing.

Stay healthy and stay safe!

4 RFT: Run and Air Squats

4 RFT: Run and Air Squats

4 rounds for time of:
Run 400m
50 Air Squats
* COVID Shutdown Day 1: You do not have to use mats!!!

Update: Gym closed until 3/31 by State and King County Policy applying to all health/fitness clubs

No results will be posted but for those on beyondthewhiteboard.com you can see gym activity by clicking “Squads” in the App and then expanding “Activity”.  You can also message each other.

We will be allowing a one KB or DB as well as one jump rope checkout policy soon and I will have an update tomorrow along with times to pick up for those who need a piece of equipment. We ask that if you have equipment in a home gym to try to make do so others can get something who don’t have it.
Follow the blog here or on btwb.com for daily workout’s you can do at home. I will try to program WOD’s that utilize little to no equipment and will wait to program with a jump rope or DB/KB until after we finalize the checkout process.

If you are a gym member and aren’t in the Facebook group or following on Instagram then make sure you join by using the links at the bottom of this site.
