The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.
Congrats to Coach Jacob!
This past weekend, Coach Jacob made it to the final round of the National Pro Fitness League’s selection for the Los Angeles Reign! The NPFL is the first professional spectator sport with co-ed teams competing in human performance races. Teams consisting of 4 men and 4 women will go head to head in two-hour matches that test their athleticism and ability to strategize. Jacob’s performance this weekend earned him a trip to the final round of team selection in the fall. He had some heavy competition as he battled alongside CrossFit greats such as Jeremy Kinnick, Ronnie Teasdale, Noah Olsen, Becca Voigt, Andera Ager, Kristen Clever, Chelsey Hughes, Rasmus Anderson, Patrick Burke, Wayne Willette, Ryan Fischer, Pip Malone, and Tayloe Yaffee. Way to go Coach J!
In preparing for our 3rd trip to Regionals, we are going to be doing another Samson Challenge! To refresh your memory, this biblical story says that the Angel of the Lord appeared to an Israelite named Manoah and his wife, and promised them a son that would free the Israelites from the hands of the Philistines. However, the Angel of the Lord stipulated that the wife must not drink alcoholic beverages, eat unclean foods, or cut the hair from the child’s head. As long as she heeded the Lord’s wishes, Samson received great strength. Just as the Lord commanded Samson’s mother to eat clean, abstain from alcohol, and avoid cutting his hair, we are urging you to do the same until Regionals! We want to gain physical, mental, and spiritual strength together, as we all tackle this wellness challenge. We are starting this next Monday, so if you are in, sign up on the white board! Go TEAM C-D-R!
