Thanks to all who joined us for the FirePower Halloween Party on Friday night – another year of pure fun.  You guys are so much fun to hang out with!  This was also a busy weekend of competitive events: CrossFit Kitchener held Nightmare on Mill Street attended by Georgio Schembri, Rodd Olmstead and Justin Meyers – each competing in their first individual competitions.  Amazing efforts guys.  I’ll post some pics shortly.

FirePower's Kingsley Alexander (centre)

Also competing this weekend for Team FirePower was Kingsley Alexander who brought home the bronze from Boxing Ontario Provincials in one of the most difficult weight divisions of men’s boxing!  Kingsley, under the guidance of esteemed professional trainer Jerome Coffee (AES & GEO’s former trainer) will be working hard to prepare for nationals in January, hoping for an Olympic spot on the team in 2012.

Finally, spread the word for all to join us at the official Reebok CrossFit FirePower launch party this Saturday.  Open to the public with fun, prizes, wods, and special guests.  Hoping to see you all there!

Coaches Corner : Reebok CrossFit FirePower

My legs need to be able to squat more than a toothpick with teddy bears tied to the ends, I need to be able string more pull ups together without it feeling like someone threw lava rocks at my forearms, and I need to lose the mindset that I would rather be stabbed in the eye with a hepatitis infected needle than run for more than 20 meters.

Member Achievements : Reebok CrossFit FirePower

I accepted the fact that this workout would be my first after a week off, and as a result, negated the use any of my normal, tired excuses for putting on a less than stellar performance. In all of CrossFit the clean is bar-none my favourite movement.
