The Savage Ox – August 2017

August 2017

We had a great July, supporting Coach Caity with a Fundraiser event to get her lifting in Taipei, followed by a Christmas in July WOD event with AMAZING Christmas food. It was magical. Thanks to all that participated and showed their support for this community and their fellow athletes. For a flash back on the events check it out further down in this months newsletter.

What to expect from this month?

Well, we are counting down to the NEXT training cycle, which begins on the 4th of September. More on that in the September Newsletter and there will be changes - I know the suspense is killing me too! What I can tell you for now is that at the end of August we will be in testing week, retesting WODs from the beginning of this cycle. So stay consistent in your training and intent in order to get measurable results.

Something equally as awesome and exciting is that the CrossFit Games is NIGH! I feel like a kid in the candy store. If you don't know what it is, get ready for your socks to be rocked off! More about that in this months newsletter.

— Coach Josh Hromis

FLASHBACK "LETS LIFT CAITY TO TAIPEI"

Untitled-design-7.png

Once again thank you to everyone for supporting Coach Caity in achieving her dream, which is to go and compete in the World Uni Games at Taipei. She has certainly trained hard and deserves all the support.

As mentioned above Caity will be absent from us for almost half a month! It will feel like a lifetime, were already counting the days when we will have her back being an amazing Coach.

FLASH BACK CHRISTMAS IN JULY WOD & POT LUCK

We're still rolling around. Sore from the WOD and full of Christmas food. Its a very confusing, yet pleasurable feeling. A massive thank you to Luliecakeb for the Custom Cookies - they were AMAZING!
