Workout of the Day (WOD)

Monday 12/12/11

This is the last week before our Toys for Tots WODfest with O.G.E.R. CrossFit, CrossFit Bellevue and ourselves.  One of the CF's we invited decided they wanted to do their own thing at their own gym so let's make sure that we show as much support and participation as possible because at the end of the day this event is for charity.  Bring a toy, work out, have fun, drink, be merry then stay downtown to do your final Christmas Shopping.  Starts at 11am.......tell your friends :-)

Strength:  Shoulder Press Week 3

WOD:  With a 12 Minute Running clock

start with 30 Burpees as fast as you can

Then AMRAP the following with the remaining time of the 12 minutes after completing the burpees

10 Power Snatches (95/65)

15 Wall Balls (20/14)

Did you notice a special class on the calendar for today?  We are having a special Hero WOD at 8pm

SGT. 1ST CLASS KRISTOFFER BRYAN DOMEIJ was an Army Ranger on his 14th combat deployment in the support of the war on terror.  Our coach, Geoff Meno, knew SFC Domeij and shared a special story of the type of person he was:

On a personal note, Kristoffer Domeij and my brother were very close.  When I needed a few quals just before my second deployment, I couldn't get them through my own unit so Kris invited me on two training exercises with him. I took leave and just met up with him in Arizona and then again in Arkansas. He had never met me in his life, and I wasn't even in the Army. He didn't care, he did whatever he could to help as many people as he could. If a couple of Marines needed some specific training before they launched on their next deployment, and he could help, he was willing to do whatever it took. Long story short, he took me under his wing, invited my Marines & I out on a couple of exercises, and taught us stuff that saved lives.
 
Of all of the soldiers that have been killed, nobody had more deployments than Kris. Left behind a wife and two little girls - they live in Tacoma.
