WEDNESDAY WINS! CROSSFIT DADS!
This Sunday we saw a FB post from Paige K. wishing her Dad, Paul, a Happy Father’s Day. Among other things, she wrote “thank you for being my workout partner, my biggest fan, and for always keeping it real.” Whoa! Workout partner!? She is thankful to workout out with her Dad? Yes!
Then it struck us just how many awesome Dads we have here that will one day get a post like this. Sure, you’re good at “parenting”, but you are all incredible role models for a life of health and fitness. And while you might not see the immediate impact you are making, over time you will shape how they view fitness (fun!) and build healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
We built this place so that you could find that hour for yourself, but also hoped that the time spent here would influence those around you. Nothing embodies this notion more than seeing our Dads enjoy time at the Cove with their children. Whether it’s them seeing you through the glass in the kid’s room or taking CrossFit Family classes with you, you are making an impression. As adults, we have created a “culture of play” here at the Cove and it is wonderful to see your children “play” with you inside AND outside the box.
There are too many to mention and celebrate, but here is a small collective of some amazing moments between our Cove Dads and their kids. The fact that you want to share this experience with them means the world to us, and we know it means the world to them. They may not say thank you now, but they will one day.
Just watch out though… they’ll be better than you before you know it…
We are so inspired by this that we are actively finding dates for our next series of CrossFit Family classes! Stay tuned for dates and times!
400 M Run
15 Toes to Bar
1 Min Rest
200 M Run
1 Min Rest
400 m Run
30 min Cap
Coach’s Tip: Overall it is a longer workout that people should scale as needed to finish within the time cap. We are looking to keep a good pace on the runs and maintain some consistency here… it is by no means a sprint/rest style workout. Just keep moving!
