The first of the year provides a natural opportunity for reflection. It’s synonymous with fresh starts and resolutions – looking forward to all the things you want to accomplish, see, and do over the upcoming year.
In our private member Facebook group and on Instagram last week, we put out a little challenge. Before you start looking forward, take a moment to reflect on everything you accomplished in 2019.
So, we wanted to take a moment to do just that – reflect back over all the awesomeness that was 2019 at CrossFit Undeniable.
A sincere thank you to all of our members. You literally make this entire thing possible, and we’re endlessly grateful!
Per usual, we kicked off 2019 with our annual New Year’s Day workout. It’s quite the doozy, progressing from 100 reps down to 1 rep with exercises progressing in difficulty and weight.
We also ran an Olympic Lifting workshop, which was super popular. We’ll be running similar workshops in 2020 if you missed out!
In February, we ran a nutrition challenge that offered individual coaching over six weeks. We had some seriously amazing transformations, and winners took home some Rogue swag.
We also had our annual Valentine’s Day Speed Dating WOD, which always makes for some good laughs and fun.
Throughout February and March of 2019, we geared up for what would be the first CrossFit Open of 2019. It all came to a grand finale during our Friday Nights event in March for 19.5. Kudos to all that made it through all five weeks of a really difficult Open!
Per usual, March also means St. Paddy’s Day. This year, we celebrated with some leprechaun trivia and a bit of green beer.
In April, we had our annual Easter WODHunt. Participants hunted for Easter eggs. The only difference? Within the egg, they found a workout instead of candy. 🤣
Oh, and this:
Within the CrossFit community, May and Memorial Day are synonymous with Murph. We all took on the iconic hero workout in honor of Michael Murphy and stuck around for bison burgers and other delicious treats afterwards.
July was a busy month! We had our Operation Red Wings workout on the 4th of July, arguably the toughest workout we do all year. The place was buzzing with energy, which is always amazing to see during that brutal test.
We also had our first “UP” (Undeniable Pride) Day, where we all got together to perform maintenance on barbells, rowers, bikes, and other equipment to keep it in tip-top shape, while enjoying some coffee and bagels.
Finally, we ran a four-hour snatch clinic, which went deep on positioning, drills, corrective exercises, and more.
Another busy month! We ran a gymnastics clinic digging in on the handstand push-up, pull-up, and muscle-up. We also ran a 9/11 Tribute WOD. Pretty straightforward – 343 burpees for time, one burpee for each FDNY Firefighter that died on September 11, 2001. As part of the workout, we also raised money for the Fallen Firefighter Association.
Finally, we had a member social at Tiller’s Kitchen in Westminster. It was amazing to see 50+ people all get together and share a meal!
Just when you thought you were recovered from the first CrossFit Open, we had the 2020 CrossFit Open, which kicked off in October 2019. For the first time ever, we ran an intramural Open, which meant participants broke out into teams and competed for points each week.
We had an epic time, and weekly themes made for some awesome costumes! Check out this post for a ton of amazing photos.
Oh, we also ran a “Donut Mile” in October. Four Donuts + Four 400m Runs = 1 Donut Mile. It was challenging that’s for sure!
The 2020 CrossFit Open finished, and we turned 7 years old as a business! We also kicked off Turkey Day the only way we know how—with a little fitness.
Speaking of turkey, we had a ton of members take on the MBS Turkey Challenge including some of our CrossFit Kids stars!
We closed out the year with our annual 12 Days of Christmas WOD. The workout looks harmless enough, but it gets incredibly serious when you get to “6 Front Squats…” 🤣
We also held a charity drive for Operation Christmas Child, helping deliver over 20 shoeboxes filled with toys to kids in need.
