    Awesome WOD even though we had crappy music ala Dan. (I know I’m going to catch grief but old 80’s music doesn’t kick it up for me) It’s good to have Shanna and Corey back!!!!!

    Good music is important. And most of the music from the 80’s…not good WOD music. I’m so excited to have our coaches back!

    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like their legs are made of wood after Saturday’s walking lunge glute fest? Thrusters sound excruciating.

    In defense of Dan…at least it wasn’t Marvin Gaye like Tony brought in.. . . And it was different. . .and you could understand the words.
    It is great to have Shanna and Corey back looking rested and fresh! I’ve heard honeymoons are good for you.

    I heard the end of the music at 5:00 am. My iPod is much better. Daniel, I know this was back in the day, but every time I look at this photo, I hear Shanna’s voice yelling “ELBOWS UP!” Haha.

    That was probably my 5th or 6th time doing Crossfit and Shanna busted out a WOD that was nothing but 100 thrusters LOL

    HAHAHAHA! And, yet, you still came back to WOD again, Daniel! 100 thrusters. Of course. I can’t think of anything that I’d rather do with my time…except perhaps that WOD of 100 thrusters plus 100 pushups.

    Poor Fertel. I really feel I must defend him. He was so excited to bring us his ipod. How can you not love the music of a person who has that much enthusiasm for his ipod collection? When Corey cranked up those 80’s tunes to an unbearable decible, it worked for me. And it wasn’t David’s sea shanty collection, ha ha ha!

    So, what’s *your* favorite music for a WOD? I think someone (T, ahem?) should create a “best of CFA-ers” collection for us all to use at the gym.

    Ah, the music dilemma! I’ve heard that one of the greatest headaches for coaches is finding music to keep everyone happy. Personally, I don’t usually notice it over my own labored breathing during a WOD. I do, however, have a bizarre memory of doing a WOD and hearing strains of “Itsy Bitsy Spider” coming from upstairs. Wierd. I think our music should match our workouts – constantly varied. Bring on the playlists!

    This was more than bar weight thrusters though. This WOD was something like 10 thrusters @ 80% of a 1 rep max, 20 thrusters @ 70%, 30 @ 60%, and finish with 40 @ 50%.

    I almost asked for my money back after this one hahaha.

    I am always thankful for new music in the gym. Thanks for sharing Dan. You can bring your tunes back anytime I’m around!

    I’m going to volunteer Betsy Fedder to create a new playlist (you’re welcome, Betsy). My music tends to have too much profanity, and my PG playlists are getting old. Betsy’s last CD rocked.

    I love it! A CFA playlist project in the works! If anyone can do it, Betsy F can. (So what was on your last CD, Betsy? I’m very curious. I am always looking for good, rockin music.)

    Mamma Shanna, you always know how to say the right things. And that is why you must be our coach forever and ever and ever.

    Wow. No pressure or anything, right? You can all just publicly complain about my music choices on the boards if you don’t like them. I guess Milli Vanilli is out? I’m on it.

    Milli Vanilli is perfectly acceptable to play during “calisthenics.” Not when we are lifting heavy things and not during a WOD.

    Yes Shanna… I see the question mark..1×130 was a PR for me on Thrusters.. not saying it was the fish though so shut up, Corey. ; ) haha.
