Sunny day rowing


This is a new measure, so we’re going to use this as your baseline. You’ll be finding a solid 3-rep weight here. We don’t want to go for a max effort, but try to push yourself a little.

Another new measure. This is more about foot positioning than the weight you have overhead. Pay attention to consistency on foot placement.

Heavy Single
Use the above learned steps to complete a successful heavy single. Again, this is not for a 1RM, but we do want you to push yourself a little.


6 Strict Pull-Ups
9 Front Squats (135/95)

1. As a member, do I HAVE to use ZenPlanner or get the app on my phone?
No. However, all members are set up in the system and check in at the Kiosk before each class. If you don’t have the app, you can still access the website (https://commence.sites.zenplanner.com) to accomplish all that the app does, but it is a little clunky, requires you to login each time and not as easy to navigate through.
2. Is there a charge for Zen Planner?
Nope. It’s free with your membership.

“I am not a CrossFit Commence Member and want to sign up for a drop-in Yoga class. Is this possible?”
Yes. Drop-ins are welcome! $15 per class. You can also do a punch card for $125 for 12 sessions or $59/month for unlimited yoga. If you are interested in dropping in, go to https://commence.sites.zenplanner.com/calendar.cfm and click on the class time you would prefer. Once you get to the class page, hit the “Sign Up” button under “New Here?”. On the next page, click the “Register” button and you can get set up as a new member and reserve the class time.
