Our First “Member WOD”

Today we begin a new tradition at Thermal: Member WODs. We will be recognizing long-standing members of our gym who embody the culture of CrossFit. Much like the Hero or Girl WODs on main site, this workout will be designed to fit our recognized member: it will include movements that they enjoy or are particularly good at, plus it will include numbers (reps, sets, rounds, etc) that are of significance to that person. We hope to release a Member WOD about once a month and we hope to see you at the box on Monday!

“Megs”

What an honor to be the first Thermal member WOD. I’ve been doing CrossFit for a little over 5 years. I’ve made some of my best friends because of it and become stronger and more confident than I ever imagined. Growing up I was swimmer – never the fastest but I had great technique. Being at Thermal I am reminded of the team atmosphere that I loved.

When I’m not at CrossFit I love spending time with my nieces and nephews. They all love to do burpees. Well maybe they all don’t love them but they think what I do is cool. Hopefully they will become future CrossFit kids!

Strength / Technique

Take 15 Minutes to build up to a heavy 1 rep hang power clean

*doesn’t have to be a 1RM, this could be more technique focused

Conditioning

“Megs”

For time:

3 rounds of:
12 hang power cleans, (125/85#)
22 KB swings, (53/35)
28 double unders
after the 3 rounds, 50 burpees
