Not badges of honor. Keep them healthy so you can stay in your game. Start by showing your calluses some TLC. They are there to protect your hands from damage and injury. Calluses are proof of your hard work. But if you don’t keep them uniform and hydrated, the thick parts can break down from high repetitions at the rings, the bar, or bells– where skin gets a grinding from friction–and eventually you get tears and rips, leaving you with bloody, painful useless hands.

-All regularly scheduled sessions will be our usual open gym format. You can make up an old wod or try one of the new wods listed on the board. Or you can just take some time for active recovery. Such as stretching out, using the foam rollers, working on your mobility, or getting in some extra cardio on the Concept 2. It’s all good. Just come on in and get something done.
*The Games Open WOD will be the wod for everyone on Monday. If you do the wod on Saturday or Sunday, you have the option of redoing it or doing one of the workouts from the weekend board.
“There is a huge population of people who express interest in CrossFit, but claim they don’t have time. And I can sympathize. For many of us, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day. Between careers, social events, kids, and the necessary eating and sleeping, there isn’t a lot of free time available to indulge in anything selfish. But for the priorities in life, you learn to rearrange and account for some time. You don’t wait for your schedule to open up, because it never will. You make time. And one of your top priorities should now and forever be your health.”
