The Last WOD
by Jenn R.
‘Twas the WOD before Christmas and all through the box,
The athletes were huffing , while doing their squats.
With jump ropes a’zipping, and grunts in the air
They were all hoping, end time was near.
Dripping, swearing , with lots of yells,
The music pumping and thumping to swinging kettelbells.
The barbells were flying, the bars in the air,
The coaches watched each athlete with care.
Feet back, chest up, wrists behind your head
Get it right or we push till your dead.
Burpees for time, and chest to bar,
Clean and Jerks till you can’t walk to your car.
The athletes of Connex all dressed in their green,
If they could walk yet remains to be seen.
The coaches are tough, from 3,2,1, GO
But no better community exist, of this you must know.
Our coaches have dogs that watch us all day,
Connie and Riley just waiting to play.
The energy and cheers that erupt in the room,
As Emily and Kief yell with a boom.
TIME- for all, get your name on the board,
Tally your reps and PRs that you scored.
Everyone leaves knowing they can’t wait to come back
For skills and weights they cannot wait to attack.
As the gym closed its doors again for the night, the smiles and laughs were a wonderful sight.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
We hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday! Enjoy the time off with friends and family. Safe travels to those who are going away.
We look forward to getting back to training with all of you on Thursday.
Reminder: the gym will be closed on Tuesday, December 24 and Wednesday, December 25. We will reopen for open gym on Thursday, December 26 from 4:00-6:00 pm.
