New Nutts Cup Component: NUTTS ACADEMY. And We Need Your Help!

A couple house keeping items before we get to the meat and potatoes of this post: 1. ***NUTTS CUP REGISTRATION WILL OPEN THIS THURSDAY*** 2. This weekend is a long weekend. Our class schedule is as follows: Friday: 6 am, 7 am, 11 am, 5 pm class Saturday: 10 am, 11 am Sunday: CLOSED Monday: CLOSED One of the things we will remember about Andy Nutts was his desire to make a difference. In honour of this, we're in the process of establishing The Nutts Academy, our very own not for profit charity aimed at making a difference. Well, the truth is, one of our coaches - the gigantic-hearted Charlie Palmer - has already been making a difference. So this is really just the next step. For the last five years, Charlie Palmer has been volunteering his time working with youth at risk through the Take a Hike Foundation. A couple times a week, Charlie devotes himself to coaching high school kids in an attempt to keep them on the right path in life. Charlie says that something like CrossFit would have helped save him during his adolescence. In the last five years, Charlie has made a tremendous impact on many of these kids. Today, one of Charlie's kids is a Junior apprentice coach at our school. If you see a pimply-faced kid following Charlie around, his name is Sean. One of our first goals is to raise money to help Sean become CrossFit Level 1 certified. Getting to the point. This year, we're using Nutts Cup on August 11th as a chance to raise money for The Nutts Academy. We're hosting a silent auction at Nutts Cup, but we need more things to sell. If anyone owns a business, sells products, or provides a service and is willing to donate to the auction, please post to comments. Or email Audrey at audrey@crossfit.ca. Or if you have any great fundraising ideas that you'd like to help us with, post to comments. Let's make this the best Nutts Cup ever. Monday:   Tech: Deadlifts (3, 3, 3, 3, 3) Between each set, hit up the rings and do a max set of ring dips. WOD: 4 rounds: 20 D Ball slams 20 KB swings Run 200 meters This workout came from Sheppy and was programmed for the final day of our fall Mad Lab in 2011. Wendy went head to head against Nathalie. It was a gutsy and painful-looking sprint for both women. Nausea-inducing, for sure. - Eunice
