Guest Coach From Vancouver, Canada!
What fun it was today to have some good friends come into the box while they are on vacation and guest coach a WOD.
See Kermit, Dan, and Carolyn "Black Swan" in the photo at right. Dan brought in a wod called "The Chief" and coached us as he does at his box back home. It was fun to partake in different rituals and routines of other CrossFit coaches and come together as part of the greater CrossFit community. Dan helped us all with the Power Cleans, which for me was by far the hardest part of this workout.
Below: The kids warm up with weighted relays.

Why is this workout called "The Cheif"?
Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, "The Chiefs" have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate "The Chief" in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.
