Announcement: In preparation for the move, please start to take your belongings home with you. This includes lost and found, WOD books, water bottles, and any other odds and ends. When the move happens (sometime in February) we will donate anything left behind to Goodwill. Did I mention that includes water bottles?

I’m sad that this picture exists but happy I got to see Brock off for his finale workout at CrossFit Portland. Brock lives up in Vancouver, WA and is a skip away from CrossFit Fort Vancouver. He’ll be continuing his daily training and beating those younger at him, without the heart condition, in WODs up there. Brock’s impression on CrossFit Portland will live on in our hearts and minds, but especially our shins. Why shins? Most of the boxes for box jumps are handmade by Brock and if you ever missed a box jump, say Hi to Brock. Also, when we move, you can thank Brock for making the kettlebell/wallball shelf heavier than everything else in the gym put together. Brock the Builder does not cut corners. We’ll miss you, we’ll see you at potlucks, and drop a comment now and then!

  2. Hello from Fuel & Body,

    Tabata(Row, Tire Strikes, Sit ups, and Tire jumps, Skaters) total= 42.3 πŸ™
