Record DC-area rain streak or not — CrossFit DC Endurance is off and running! As you might have heard, our budding endurance program is getting under way. CFDC Endurance programming will blend additional layers of endurance work with CrossFit DC’s class workouts, featuring weekly programming with the option of group workouts on the road, track, and pool. Our focus: building stronger, faster endurance athletes without logging a million slow, boring miles — and fostering an open, inclusive community. Whether you’re a speed junkie or a road warrior, a veteran or total rookie, if you’re interested in combining your CrossFit training with preparation for an endurance event, CFDC Endurance has a place for you. If you aren’t already on our CFDC Endurance Team mailing list, and we’ve piqued your interest, even just a little bit, this is your chance! To sign up, find out more, or ask questions, please contact CFDC Endurance Captain Kara M. at email@example.com.
As if today’s Mobility Seminar wasn’t enough — we’re set for Sunday Yoga at 14th Street, tomorrow at 3pm. Come on out for your weekly dose of zen! We’d recommend bringing your own mat if you have one, and we’d greatly appreciate sign-ups in advance: http://bit.ly/CFDCYoga.
Thank you to all who joined us on Friday night for our “Open & Closed” celebration! We’ll continue sharing photos and Open stories in the coming days, and we know that the energy and inspiration from those five epic weeks won’t soon fade away. For now, we just want to take a moment to say thank you, to each and every individual who made the last five weeks possible: http://crossfitdc.com/2016/04/2016-open-closed-thank-you.

“I’ve never cared that much about the outcome before. I mean c’mon, it’s just CrossFit. “But leading up to 16.5, I was incredibly stressed about the workout and how well, or how poorly, I would perform. That’s all thanks to the first time this legalized torture made its way into the Open… 14.5.” — Dave E.

Because barbell-lunging for miles doesn’t come with scenic views… CFDC is hitting the trail, and we want you! On Sunday, April 9, teams of CFDCers will lace up their sneakers for The North Face Endurance Challenge DC #ECSDC, held at Algonkian Regional Park, featuring single-track trails and carriage roads through riverside forest. While the event will feature multiple distance options, we’ve set our sights on the marathon relay, in which teams of 2-4 runners will complete a 10K loop each. We’re psyched to have several teams of CFDCers already confirmed to race, and even more excited to announce, in partnership with The North Face Endurance Challenge Series, a discounted entry for any CFDC member who’s interested in joining in the fun. We’re happy to help you connect with fellow CFDCers to form relay teams, or we encourage you to join up with a few buddies — and we’ll look forward to hitting the trail squad deep, CFDC-style! If we’ve piqued your interest… perhaps inspired you to dig out your running shoes from beneath your Nanos and lifters… we’ll add just one more teaser to the mix: the April 9 race will serve as a kick-off for our nascent CrossFit DC Endurance program. Yes, that’s right, CFDC Endurance! We know that many of our runners, cyclists, swimmers, triathletes, and aspiring endurance athletes have long been asking, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be getting things off the ground in the coming weeks, starting with some old-fashioned trail running! To learn more about joining CFDC at The North Face Endurance Challenge, or to find out more about our new CrossFit DC Endurance Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, subject heading “Endurance.” Happy trails, CFDC!: https://www.thenorthface.com/get-outdoors/endurance-challenge/washington-dc.html.
Base Camp this Saturday, Feb 13 — well, this is just going to be a total cluster! Wait! Before you start frowning at such family-unfriendly language… we’re serious! This weekend, we’ll tackle the sneaky combination move known as the “Cluster,” the squat-clean-to-thruster (Yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds!). As always, we’ll cover the how-to’s and what-if’s, from points of performance to common coaching cues and the weight selections and scaling options that are best for you. For those who haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon, Base Camp classes — Saturdays 11:30am at H Street, and 1pm at 14th Street — are geared towards our newer members as a “bridge” between our introductory Elements series and our open-level group classes. If you’re looking for some extra coaching on fundamental movements, this is the place to be! Base Camp Saturday, Feb 13: http://crossfitdc.com/2016/02/base-camp-192016-2/. (Photo: Charles W.)
Heads-up on schedule adjustments for Sunday, 1/24 (which mirrors today’s schedule): Open Gym ONLY at both gyms, from Noon until 3pm. All classes are CANCELLED for the day.

Many thanks to our fearless coaches for trekking out mid-blizzard to open our gyms today! And many, many thanks to the members who pitched in and helped us dig out! Cheers to all those who came out and sweated out their cabin fever with deadlifts, double-unders, and more — and to everyone who’s getting in their #Snowzilla workouts from home (keep those photos coming!). Who says a little blizzard has to keep us from getting our fitness on?! (PS Stay tuned to your inboxes, FB, and Twitter for updates about tomorrow’s operating hours!)
