Tadd and Dwayne. Our fearless leaders. These two fine gentlemen are our athletes of the month. They’re strong, disciplined, and hard working. They both work full time jobs at the fire department, run the box full time, are husbands, and have families. They both balance their lives well and deserve more credit and recognition than we could ever give them. They are constantly trying to make the box a better place by getting new equipment, through expanding, and by listening to member’s ideas and feedback. They are dedicated to making CrossFit Driving Formations the best place it can be and they are dedicated to helping each athlete reach their full potential. They are too humble to ever draw any attention to themselves, but we’d like to give them a special shout out to let them know how loved and appreciated they are.

Once you have the CrossFit bug, you will use any holiday as an excuse to workout. The Fourth of July is no exception. At CFDF, we like to celebrate our freedom by participating in an annual WOD on the beach. On lookers watched as we warmed up with an Indian run, some burpees in the sand, butt kicks, high knees, karaoke (and not the kind you sing, though that’d be interesting), some more running, and sit-ups. For the WOD, teams had to work together to complete two burpees, two air squats, and two lunges until reaching cones. Then they had to complete 30 sit-ups as a team and bear crawl back. Then two teammates carried a container down to the ocean to fill it with water and then pour it into an opponent’s bucket while the other teammates completed a run. When a bucket was filled completely with water, that team lost points. This was completed for a total of five rounds. After the WOD, many people stuck around to hang out on the beach.

Can you believe we’re halfway through the year? This is not the time to be slacking on your fitness. Personal training is available at the box through one of our awesome coaches. There are also snacks, drinks, protein, and various supplements available as well. Need a new t-shirt? We have that too. We are devoted to helping you achieve all of your fitness goals, because as always, we roll deep.
