Sunday, August 26 – Monday, September 3, 2012

***Important Announcement***
MPH will be closed from Monday, August 27 through Saturday, September 1, as well as the Labor Day holiday.

  • This will be important, prescribed rest for all of us, athletes and coaches, as there is no “off season” in our sport. Rest and recovery are essential to maintaining the mental and physical intensity required for long-term success. There will be no posted workouts during this time, and instead, a programmed break from all CrossFit activities.
  • We will resume a normal workout schedule on Tuesday, September 4.


This week, play a sport, hike, ride your bike and walk to work—nothing that resembles a workout. Turn off your watch, metronome and anything that counts or beeps—nothing that reminds you of the clock. Keep your hands clean of chalk and tears, and treat them repeatedly. Stretch, massage and roll. Sleep in. Leave work early. Eat well. Really well.

We are away these next few days, resting, reflecting and appreciating the future of MPH. When we return, a busy turn into the fall season begins with fundraisers, races and competitions. The fun and good, hard work begins again soon.

For now, rest…
