Partition reps as needed.
Thanks to everyone that brought friends and family to this month’s Free Saturday! It was a great Success! Aug 27th will be our next Free Saturday work out.
There is no shame in stripping weight off the bar mid-WOD if it means you will be able to keep moving through your reps.
Your goal is INTENSITY.
There is no shame in using irrigation boxes because the 20 inch box intimidates you.
You will jump HIGHER.
There is no shame in using a band for your pull ups, doing push ups from your knees or lifting an empty barbell.
There is no shame in having to do jumping MU, double under attempts or handstand holds.
Your technique will IMPROVE.
There is no shame if the weight you lift is less than your partner’s.
You lift the right weight for YOUR progression.
There is no shame in stopping a workout because an old injury flares up.
There is no shame in having to sub or mod the WOD.
You create the best workout for you.
There is no shame in being the slowest. There is no shame for being the least fit, the heaviest athlete, the weakest lifter or the newest member. There is no shame in finishing 4th, or 5th, or last.
When all is said and done…
You get up, you get out the door, you show up.
You come, you move, you work, you sweat, you crumble.
So next time you feel stupid, weak, inadequate, frustrated or anxious about where you are right now, Stop.
There is no shame in being who you are in this moment.
The only shame lies in not striving to be the person you want to be tomorrow.

Big welcome back to Robin, who has been on medical hiatus. We are so glad to have him back in the gym, as he has been a part of CrossFit Flagstaff since our early days in the old gym in Sunnyside! Alongside Robin, we welcome Tom as a new athlete to our community! Tom comes to us from Virginia, where he trained with dear friends and long-time CrossFitters, Chriss and Andrea Smith, at Trident CrossFit!
“Every time you do a Hero WOD … it helps people remember the sacrifice that people gave more than they were asked, so thank you to the entire CrossFit community.” —@andystumpf212

Edwin and his daughter came to Flagstaff for the Terrain Race but they CrossFit at home as well. So they had stopped in to our gym for a work out on Friday AND Saturday morning before their race! Strong work on completing the 5K course you two!
Beth R, Ted, Sara and Steve completed the 5K course. Angie, Jim, Katie, and Beth D, completed the 10K course! Jo Heather and John also completed the 10K course earlier in the day and I did not get any ‘during the race’ or after photos of them. Sorry.
