Jersey Devil CrossFit's June Co-Members of the Month are...
Jaymie & Meredith!
These two lovely ladies started crossfitting with us back in January and we can't believe how much they have improved since then! We love seeing these two pees in a pod workout side by side night after night, pushing each other to try new things and work a little harder. They immediately fit right in with the 7:30pm crew (our Sassy Sweaters, as I like to call them) where we get equal parts grit, determination, laughs, and eye rolls from our members ;P
Jaymie and Meredith have both been putting in the work in our CrossFit classes, constantly working to master the basics. They both completed their first Murph just last week which is a huge accomplishment! We're incredibly proud of how far they've come and can't wait to see what the future holds for these two.
Way to go Meredith & Jaymie!
The redo is here! Every year Dave Castro gives us an opportunity to retest ourselves and see how far we've come, how much fitter we are, and how much we've improved over the past year or few years. This year, 17.4 was 16.4: a chipper composed of deadlifts, wall balls, rowing, & handstand push ups.
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 13 minutes of:
55 deadlifts, 225/155 lb.
55 wall-ball shots, 20-lb. ball to 10-ft. target / 14-lb ball to 9-ft target
55 handstand push-ups
Spoiler Alert... Everyone was so much fitter!!
We are incredibly proud to see all our Open athletes crush their scores from last year! Hank Rizzotte came out on top this week, with a whopping 251 reps! It was so awesome to watch everyone fight for their reps this year. Fun fact: Corie & Sam tied in reps on 16.4 (getting through 10 handstand push ups each) AND tied again this year in 17.4 (getting through 29 handstand push ups each)! Twinsies.
Male RX Hank Rizzotte 251 Reps
Female RX Corie Adamucci 194 Reps (9:09 tie break)
Female Scaled Lori Amos 244 Reps
Only 1 week left! What till Dave come up with next??
We're a little late on our 17.3 review!! Better late than never. 17.3 was an epic battle of strength. This workout was all about the snatches. You had stay smooth and composed under some big weights to get the best score on this one.

We saw some more awesome efforts by everyone on this workout!
In the end, it was sir Evan Smith with the top score! He tied Connor Wilsbach and Sal Petetti in reps, but squeaked by them with a faster tie break time of 9:20! Another notable performance was by miss Samantha Wilson! She also tied with Corie & Kerri, but destroyed them with the speediest tie break time of 6:39.
Male RX Evan Smith 129 Reps (9:20 tie break)
Female RX Samantha Wilson 80 Reps (6:39 tie break)
Male Scaled Rick Amos 132 Reps
Female Scaled Lori Amos 191 Reps
Overall, it was an awesome week in the gym and we were so looking forward to 17.4! Who guessed it was gonna be the repeat!?
We're ramping up for The Open with a Challenge!
The February CrossFit Open Double Under Challenge
Participants will complete one double under for each successive day during the month of February leading up to The Open.
Day 1 = 1 Double Under
Day 2 = 2 Unbroken Double Unders
Day 3 = 3 Unbroken Doulbe Unders, etc.
The double unders will be performed in the warm up & participants can try until they get it! The challenge will go right up until February 23rd (the first day of The Open) and by then we'll be jumping pro's!
That's right, it's not just the British. The CrossFit Open is coming in hot too!
For those of you that don't know, The CrossFit Open is a five week, five workout competition held in CrossFit affiliates and garage gyms all over the world. Workouts are released on Thursday night and athletes have until Monday night to complete them & submit their scores. There are RX, scaled, masters, and teens workouts posted, making The Open accessible to & possible for everyone.
Here's some reasons why we think you should participate in The CrossFit Open with us:
You're Good. Whether you believe it or not, you're good at this whole exercising thing. You workout all year long, coming into the gym week after week and putting in the time. The Open gives you a chance to showcase all that hard work.
You Get To Be A Part Of Something Bigger. The Open is something bigger than just Jersey Devil CrossFit. It's an awesome way for the entire CrossFit Community to come together.
It's A Great Excuse To Trash Talk. Usually trash talking in the gym is a little excessive and borders on being frowned upon, but during The Open all bets are off. Trash talk with your buddies is all part of some friendly competition.
There'll Probably Be Beer. We like to work hard, but that means we play just as hard. We'd be willing to bet that Friday's during The Open will be just as much a celebration as they are a challenge.
You'll Surprise Yourself. Every year we see people push a little harder, go a little farther, and surprise themselves during the open.
You May Even Inspire Others. You never know who's watching. Maybe someone in the gym looks up to you, or you struggle though the very thing they're afraid of struggling though. Your actions in the gym are inspiring and you should be proud of all your abilities.
Labor Day Weekend is comin' in hott!
Before all your end of summer festivities, stop into the gym for a Labor Day Hero WOD. Bring your friends & family for a killer workout pre-cookouts & school is coming existential crises :P
When: September 5th at 8AM
Where: JDCF, duh.
