14 Nov The G-Force Source: we say eff you to cancer!
“What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.”
— Kurt Vonnegut
Cancer is something that would have touched us all in some way. It’s very real and very close to us at G-Force CrossFit with the grandfather of G-Force currently going through his own battle. With that in mind, Head Coach Glen started up an initiative to give back to the Brain Cancer Foundation to help others going through the same ordeals. Through the selling of t-shirts and with the help of our seniors from the Friday senior’s class at G-Force, we raised $855 to give back to cancer research. Every bit helps.
This Saturday the 19th of November is “bring a friend day” at G-Force. Just like our barbecue day last month, we invite our members to bring a friend to G-Force at 8am for a free session. Our “bring a friend day” serves as an opportunity to introduce your friends to what you do at CrossFit. If you have friends that don’t quite understand your awesomeness or doubt what we do, bring them in because more often times than not, they end up joining our cult. 8am this Saturday, bring your humans to G-Force!
This Thursday we’re running another workshop and this week the focus is on accessories. We’ve talked about accessories countless times and how they’re undervalued. Come into G-Force this Thursday evening to make yourself aware of the importance of accessory work. Speak to Glen about further information on the workshop.
Lastly, most of you have noticed that our current program block has been focused on deadlifts and overhead work consisting of presses and jerks. Nothing is random. With our emphasis on those two types of movements, we’ve seen a large number of new personal bests and that’s exactly what we want to see happen. Our current program block is coming to its closing weeks and we’re going to see a return of more squats in the new program block. Leg day erryday!
See you all in the gym.
