10/08/13 – Lifestyle Challenge Day #8 – One Week Down

Challengers, you have made it past the one week mark!  Woo Hoo!  How is everyone feeling?  What is the toughest thing you have to deal with on a daily basis.  What is the best thing you have experienced being paleo?

Today’s Workout:

  • Strength – Take 20 minutes to establish a 10 rep max push press.  Weight is taken from the ground.
  • Conditioning – 5-10-15-20
    • Pull Ups – (Crx = CTB)
    • Ring Dips
  • Finisher – 300m Overhead Plate Carry

I’m sure most of you are aware, but for those of you who are not, the picture below is of the new CrossFit 908 logo.  I have spent the past 4 years unsatisfied with the innumerable iterations of logos, until now.  I worked with Vinny C., one of 908’s members and a very talented graphic designer, to come up with the 908 infinity symbol logo.  The meaning is not that profound, but it resonates with me.  I view fitness as a journey.  At no point do I think I will say to myself, “Well self, you are the fittest you will ever be.”  The reality of the situation is that there will always be something I can improve upon.  Now, my good friend Big Jay from Brazen Athletics would go off on a tangent about how we are limitless and the infinity symbol represents our boundless being, but I am not big enough to have Tony Robbins living inside of me.  However, I do think that the infinity symbol is very positive and symbolically represents the infinite amount of good things we can do and positive changes we can enact on each other.  In my opinion, CrossFit 908 goes way beyond what a “gym” is and can be.  We are an ever growing community of high quality individuals who, together, can help each other to reach goals once thought impossible.  I hope you all enjoy your new home and new logo.  We will never stop working to bring you better coaching, better facilities, and better guidance.  Baby 908 turned 4-yrs old on October 3, and she thanks you all for your support.

    Where’d you find this talented Vinny character?? I think I should be friends with him ;). Great work on the logo Vinny and collaborators… and happy birthday 908! I am honored to share a birthday with you 🙂

  2. Had my first workout in new space and it’s awesome!!! You’ve done a great job, congratulations on your success.

  3. I love what you wrote, TIm!! Having watched the journey of Crossfit 908 and having seen it grow from its inception, I couldn’t be more proud of what TIm and Erin have created…. a place where every body type, every age, every ability level, etc. is encouraged to grow and to do their best in a supportive and fun environment with coaches/trainers who are knowledgeable, patient, and truly care about you. At the GSO, it was clear who the 908 athletes were as to form and perseverance. I love watching 908 continue to grow and prosper in such a positive way! It couldn’t have been done without Tim and Erin’s vision, organization, and dedication. Glad to be along for the ride on this journey!

  4. Tim and Erin. Thank you for our new home. Crossfit 908 is much more than a gym. Its a second home for us and a second family

  6. This place has been my home for almost four years…and I love it today as much as I did 3.75 years ago. You people rock.

  7. Loving the new logo :). I’m so proud of you, T&E, for everything you have built here at 908. We are truly a family community here, and I’m so blessed to have 908 and all of you guys in my life. Here’s to many wonderful memories to be made in the new space!!!
