"We are born to be fit, strong, and healthy." Robb Wolf

January 01, 2011



2010 was a pretty good year. I have seen a lot of people get PR's on lifts and during WODs. And the smile on your faces as you got the PR's I will always remember. I have also seen a lot of people clean up their eating habits and made drastic changes in their physical appearance while still maintaining a great level of fitness. I am proud of each and every one of you. Simply amazing.

Unfortunately, some bad luck was bestowed on some of you this year. Rest assured that you have not, and never have been, forgotten. We think about you every day, in getting healthier and stronger and in hopes of returning to CrossFit Kingston for the "good times". You are a warrior and your return makes CFK what it is.

Now that we are in a new year, 2011, let's continue to change our lives by becoming stronger, faster, and healthier. Let's set a few goals for ourselves and crush them. Set yourself a one-month, three-month, and 6-month goal. Whether it be a weight you want to lift, a gymnastics movement you want to perform (an unassisted strict pull-up for example), a fast time on a WOD (sub-5 minute Fran for example), a specific body weight, etc. The world is your oyster on this one. If you have more than one goal then jot it down and let's work together to attain that goal and more! Let Andrew, Pete, Dawson, and, yes, Perry help you acheive these goals.

Let's make 2011 the year where we play hard, play safe, respect one another, and, most importantly, help each other out. We are a family (as seen with all of the generous donations as of late). Let's keep it strong! If you are new to the family, don't be shy to introduce yourself to the seasoned athletes and learn from them. If you have been in the family for a while, let's welcome the new athletes with open arms and show them what it's like being in the CFK family!
