August Challenge Winners & September Challenge Sneak Peak

By admin | In Challenges | on September 6, 2011

Huge congrats to Holley and Jake who won the August Challenge last week!  For those of you who missed it, the challenge consisted of a max shoulder to overhead rep, 400m run, and Tabata(ish) wall ball shots.  Both athletes crushed all three events decidedly.  The challenge was a way to test your ability as an athlete in different ranges of fitness:

  1. strength and power
  2. speed
  3.  muscular endurance
  4. mental fortitude (especially by round 4 of Tabata wall ball shots)
The September Challenge will be a bit different from our other challenges.  It will be a Scavenger Hunt through the city of El Segundo, beginning and ending at the gym.  Without revealing the details, just know that the entire event will take place on a Saturday this month.  Each team (of 2-3) will need to bring a camera and a printed map of downtown El Segundo (we can provide that if necessary).  The format will be more like a photo scavenger hunt than an urban dare with clues stashed around the city.  Details to follow!
The winning team will receive a 50% off their next month’s membership.
**The date for the scavenger hunt is still pending.  Oct 1st is reserved for our MB 10k WOD)

A double birthday shout out to Intrepids Troy and Mark (M^2)!

Troy joined us earlier this year and has seen great results in his water skiing already, with a PR on his first big race post-CrossFit. His reputation precedes him as the burpee king as well as one who is impervious to wall balls!

Mark has had quite a PR year already, with his wedding this last June as well as a perfect honeymoon to Europe. He’s also joined a new Ultimate Frisbee team this fall with aspirations of competing at the national and world levels!

A very happy birthday to you both!

    Happy Birthday fellow Virgos! I hope to one day sprint as fast as Mark and burpee as fast as Troy – maybe in the same WOD.

    Mark- Happy birthday to you too!

    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes, the past 6 months have been an amazing experience, not just from the results but mainly from the people i have met, and the laughs i have had. No matter how hard or stressful my work day ends up being, intrepid is always the light at the end of the tunnel.

    FISHBAR tonight for anyone that’s interested!
