Ned Stark was wrong!!!  It is SUMMER that is coming and with it comes long days of heat.  Get ready for some hot training.

Murph was a great turnout.  It is always a fun event but this year you all made it really special.  We had over 60 athletes participate in the grueling workout honoring our country’s heroes.  If you have not seen the pictures, they are in an album on our Facebook page.  Thank you Jillian for hanging with us and getting some great action shots.  Also, Chris Francisco who served up some awesome grilling!  Here are some Murph stud performers:

Women’s fastest Rx time goes to Jess Dold at 42:10. Fastest vested time was Bailey Robins at 41:50

Men’s fastest Rx  time was Randy Cartwright at 31:32.  Fastest vested time was Jimmie Rucker at 37:50.

Everyone that honored our soldiers and endured the suck should also be recognized.  Good job everyone!

Summer Classic 

Our big event of the summer is quickly approaching!  We host this event to provide a fun experience for crossfitters and the PECF community.  A lot of work goes into organizing and executing this competition.  We’d like to thank our panel for putting in the hours to make this successful.  Brittany Henderson (the real owner), Ryan Weldy, and Logan McNeely.  Without their passion and hard work, this would not be possible.  We would also like to thank our volunteers in advance!  Come checkout it out!  It’s two weeks from this Saturday!  Put June 24th on your fridge!

Coach Jeff and Cassie will be taking some time off in July to enjoy their summer break.  With that said, unfortunately, we will take a break for July.  Classes will resume in August.

Good news for the parents!

We were able to secure a few wonderful people to help keep an eye on the kiddos during some of our busiest hours.  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Eva watches the kids during the 9:30AM class.  Rory is watching the kids on Monday and Tuesday at 6PM.  So far they have done a wonderful job.  Their number one objective, keeping them alive, has been met each time.  We need to keep the kids off the workout floor during class.  This is for the safety of the kids and everyone in the class.

What is the key ingredient in fitness success?

Discipline, hard work, consistency, determination are all attributes you undoubtably know of. But these are secondary.  There is something behind these qualities that drive us.

The most important component is ‘FUN’.  Fun/passion is the driving force behind all great endeavors.  If you are having fun, it doesn’t seem like hard work.  This is true for almost all high achievers.  “I never thought of it as hard work, for me it was just my passion and I wanted to do it as much as possible because it was fun.” – Kobe Bryant.  Warren Buffet also said something similar.

When you enjoy what you are doing, you going to stick with its easy to have the aforementioned characteristics.

Fun is a major value at Performance Edge CrossFit.

Trainer Spotlight 

Teresa Winders

Q: what made you want to coach CF?

A: Because I like helping people and being part of their personal growth.  I love seeing people reach their goals.  It is a joy when members do something for the first time they never thought possible.

Q: What are some of your goals?

A: My goal is to stay as active as possible with my kids.  As a coach, my goal is to get my members to reach theirs.  Whether it is  helping them build confidence, brightening their day, or helping them hit PRs on their lifts.

Q: What is your number one advice for members?

A:  Have Fun!  Do not get frustrated.  Taking it too serious leads to burnout.  Just have fun with it!

Q: Who is your celebrity crush?

 A: I’d have to say Chris Powell!  I love his message and positive energy.  He’s about keeping it simple and having fun, as I said is most important

Q: What do you enjoy outside of CF?

A:  My Kids!  I love being a mom!  It is a joy to see my kids grow up.

That’s it for now!  Stay tuned for more updates to come!  Let us know if you have any questions or requests.  We are here to make your experience as great as possible.  Thank you all for being so amazing!
