It is that time of year!! Our kids in our great Home School PE class make a list of the food items needed to make every family’s dream dinner for Thanksgiving. We assign each food item a set value in reps. This list is posted in the gym. The deadline and WOD date is set this year for November 20th!
Leading up to that date athletes of Crossfit North Pole eagerly look and create their shopping lists to reduce the number of reps they will have to perform during this annual WOD! Surprisingly enough they also look eagerly at the items needed to create more reps for the Coaches of Crossfit North Pole!! The original WOD for athletes is “BARBARA +”. Each athlete begins with 100 Pull-ups, Push-ups, Sit-ups, Squats, Box Jumps and Burpees while the coaches begin with 0 reps of the same movements! Something new this year is the reward to the fastest Rx WOD time!! The winner or winners will received 50% off December Membership!! The community of North Pole is welcome to join us for this WOD for free as long as they participate in the food drive!! The WOD will be performed at every regular class time that day.
On November 21st, the kids will gather the food and help deliver it to our local North Pole Food Closet! This is one of the most favorite days of our kid’s class! Once there we usually stay a bit to help organize the shelves for the wonderful women of the closet. We are always welcomed with warm gratitude and every kids feels like they have helped our community.
