You can use your Health Saving Account (HSA) or your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for your membership! ALSO: anything related to maintaining and gaining a healthy metabolic state, like meal services, nutrition support, belts, wraps, shoes, personal training, seminars, entry fees, et hoc genus omne!
Here’s the cliff notes on how it works: 1) you need a doctors note saying that basically you’re a human, 2) they have a 5 question survey and then a doctor who writes that note, 3) it costs $30 (which you can use your HSA for), and then you’re good to go!
The survery asks about family history and current health issues, but here’s the crux: the medical community has unanimously agreed that exercise is good for your health, and to PREVENT metabolic disease which is now recognized as the precursor to all the nasty nasty (cancer, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, etc) diseases, which means that your pre-tax money set aside for your health can and should be used for anything that will prevent, stave off, or delay the onset of these diseases. Voila!
If you have any questions, please reach out to me! My hope is that this makes it just a bit easier to pay for your membership and with any luck you can get some matching contribution bonus thing from your employer and basically get a free membership! And then maybe you can take some other healthy steps, like a meal service, or nutrition guidance, or massages, lets go!!

And by pretty chill what I mean is training is taking place! This is a good thing, I know you guys like events, but hear me out. Events are great, we come together and smash on stuff and have a good time. We do do this all the time as is 🙂 However, there should be good decently long periods where there aren’t any events like this so we can dig in to basics, root out inefficiencies, focus on our nutrition without any looming fitness dates. Our next event event is going to be the Cornucopia on Thanksgiving, and then the 12 days of Christmas after that in December. So let’s train hard hard for the next 8 weeks so we’re solid for Cornucopia (there’s gonna be some motivating challenges there for returners) and then we’ll be heading smoothly into the Open in the new year. Very excited for this next block of training. Brava team!

Hey guys! Remember GYM IS CLOSED MONDAY. Hooray labor day, enjoy the fruits of your labor. Remember guys, this week is a little prep-heavy for “Chad” coming up on September 11th. The schedule on that day will be different as well.
Monday 9/11 Patriot Day Schedule: AM Block from 5-8, PM Block from 4-6. The workout takes a while (like an hour or less) so in the AM, you need to start by about 7:00am, in the PM you need to start by about 5:00pm. The other classes will be cancelled for that day, so plan ahead, find a slot that works best for you, and let’s show up big for “Chad!”
Background: This “Chad” memorial WOD, sometimes called “CHAD1000X” is dedicated to Chad Michael Wilkinson of the US Navy who died on October 29, 2018, in Virginia Beach on active duty after 22 years of service.
On December 14, 2018, CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro @thedavecastro posted this workout in memory of Wilkinson, who was a friend. Castro said, “A few weeks ago we lost an American hero. A friend of mine and someone I worked with when I was in the Navy. At his funeral his wife mentioned that he did 1,000 step ups for time with a 45 pound pack on a 20” box to train for climbing Mt Aconcagua. Tonight I did this workout with @jameshobart @apbozman and @jimi.letchford. We did it as a celebration of his life and to honor his memory. If you are looking for something to do this weekend give this one a go and keep Chad in mind.”
From the Navy SEAL Foundation website: “SOCS Chad Michael Wilkinson died by suicide. The Foundation provided immediate tragedy assistance funding, travel and lodging for his family members, flowers and memorial legacy items for the command memorial and reception, as well as a family dinner the evening before the command memorial.”
Chad’s workout and life inspired the creation of The Step Up Foundation @thestepupfoundation, which features the workout in a virtual “CHAD 1000X” event, bringing together athletes from around the world to raise awareness of the epidemic of veteran suicide and to help be part of the solution by supporting veteran health initiatives.
