Do you long for a Sunday workout (again)? Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day? Neither did we—until now. Join us this Sunday, February 14 from 9a until 12p for the MPH Valentine’s Day Massacre. This class is loaded in MINDBODY, and it is uncapped and open to every MPH athlete that wants to participate. However, so that we may plan appropriately and provide a comfortable and efficient experience for everyone, registration for this extended session will close at 5p today. The workout parameters are simple—we look forward to seeing you there!
- One, two, possibly three short (note: did not say “easy”) workouts, loaded and scaled to accommodate athletes of all levels and experience.
- Scoring will be based on a point system.
- Here’s the kicker: Guys v. Gals. Boys v. Girls. Chicos v. Chicas. Gentlemen v. Ladies. Winner take all…
Guys (really, the boys),
We’re back. The count for the Massacre is now 17 to 16 in our favor. A few last-minute additions have more than leveled the playing field. We can probably just call victory now and sleep in on Sunday instead. Let this be a lesson to you, Jess—you should have capitalized on my offer when you had the chance. Greatness, well, it’s not for everyone.
As my great aunt Betsy used to say, “let’s do the damn thang.”
Looking forward to my first date with narF. Gentlemen- check out this video for some inspiration:
Gentlemen, Adam? I would posit that is universally inspiring.
Omigod, that’s just awesome. His ring/pullup thingy looks incredibly hard.
…Like John always says, strength comes out of the middle of the body.
Adam thank you. I may just call out you know who’s name tomorrow as a warm up. I’m just sayin’. JW
(Yawn.) Wake me up when BJ Penn signs up.
I like Great Aunt Betsy.
Now we’re talking. I’m just say’n “conceed” !!
you guys will totally concede to my hot pink awesomeness…. just sayin’ MEEP!
Oh wow, that…just…happened
And yes, we are sitting in the same room posting on the site
You should ask John for some matches or a lighter. I think he keeps them handy. I’m just sayin’
Here you go ladies. Just a little something from the movie ‘300’ to chew on vis the Massacre on Sunday. I’ll be there with a smile on my face.
Daxos: I saw those ships smashed on the rocks. How can this be?
Stelios: We saw but a fraction of the monster that is Xerxes’ army.
Daxos: There can be no victory here. Why do you smile?
Stelios: Arcadian, I’ve fought countless times, yet I’ve never met an adversary who could offer me what we Spartans call “A Beautiful Death.” I can only hope, with all the world’s warriors gathered against us, there might be one down there who’s up to the task.
With this shield, or on it, boys.
I realize now perhaps this statement requires explanation. Sometimes I forget that Thucydides’s account of the Pelopenisian War is not really standard reading.
When Spartan women sent their men off to war, they admonished them to return either “with this shield” (meaning victorious), “or on it” (meaning dead).
I’m just sayin’…
I prefer the literal version.
imo Jordin Sparks
The count is now 17 and 17, I just signed up.
Awww hell !! Watch out now.
In the interest of accuracy, it’s 19-18 in favor of the ladies now. Since two more guys and two more gals registered this morning, that means one of the boys already ran scared.
I know I don’t get included in the official count, but I will be in attendance.
BTW, love the smack talk from both sides.

I should add I was recruited by Jess this morning
nice. any other ladies out there who haven’t signed up? and caitlin, will you be back in time?
we need to make sure we keep our numbers up now that john is recruiting men outside of mph…
Funny that you ask whether Caitlin will be back in time, as we just had the following exchange via email:
Caitlin: Btw what time is the vday thing? In the morning right? I’m bummed we’re missing it.
Mike: i’m bummed too. we could skip the cape and stay — i mean, it’s just our wedding right? if you want, i challenge you to 150 burpees for time on sunday.
Caitlin: Ooo bring it!!
Mike: You’re going down. Will blog about this to see if we can be included in scoring as a tiebreaker.
There you have it. Should the Massacre be close (and I’m hoping not), I will proudly take on the burpee queen of DC for the tiebreaker.
Oh, the lawyer in me realized that I was unclear. Caitlin is going down either way, whether the Massacre is close or not. The question is only whether our little duel will be included in the Massacre scoring.
oh that’s right, i forgot that you guys will be out of town!
caitlin, you know what to do 🙂
uhmmm Mike, You know I love and respect you and Cait, but really, I mean..u’re challenging Cait to burpees for time? I mean really! 🙂 The boys want to win you know!
I mean I even heard, I’m jusy say’n, that Austin might be on a flight from CA as we speak!
Question about the Massacre: are you going to tape it?
We’re going to try and get some of it on video, yes.
That depends, will there be sit ups involved?
Thank you CrossFit MPH coach’s
Just got of 12 hours flight feeling good and went to website for WOD.
Amazing Gym at Doha Sheraton in Qatar.
5x at 105lbs
I Miss the 6am class.
The final count, assuming everyone makes it: 22 guys, 19 gals. Stunning comeback, gents.
Boys 1, Girls 0.
Score! +1 for the good guys
We don’t need numbers. We only need winners, and everyone knows we are 100% winners.
