Plyo: What’s going on right now?

Extra Credit is Back!

Check the top of the white board to for a little “extra work” if you want to up the intensity a few days a week! Can be done as part of your warm-up or after a WOD if you have a little time left over.


A Little Bathroom Reading:

Did you know that CrossFit York began with Rusty meeting a few athletes at Rudy Park? Did you know that the first pull-up rig CFY had, in its first small garage space, Rusty built and welded himself? Check out this article about how the best kind of CrossFit community grows organically. This article very much reflects the authentic evolution that CFY has experienced, and demonstrates how real CrossFit isn’t about glamour or fads. It’s about believing in and connecting with people through a love for fitness and living life to its fullest intensity.


Endurance: What’s coming up?

May 17-18: East Coast Gold Classic USAW meet at York Barbell. If you are interested in competing in a USAW meet and would like to watch before you register for one, we highly recommend you come out! This meet is right in our back yard, and we’ve got some great White Rose Barbell/CFY members competing who would love your support! On Saturday morning, Lindsay Kinard’s session begins at 830am. Tony Euculano lifts at 300pm. On Sunday, our novices lift: Melony Grove and Jackie Fullam at 900am, Bailey Druck at 100pm, Steve Kearns and Bryan Adamson at 4:00.

Young Guns Weightlifting Program

If you know a 10-17 year old who might be interested in weightlifting and crossfitting, let them know we’ll have a Young Guns Weightlifting program this summer, beginning June 18, from 10:30-12:30 Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  More information will be provided in the next week.


On the horizon, but closer than you think: June 21 and 22 will be CrossFit Total testing.

Heavy: CrossFit York athletes being awesome!

On Saturday, May 10, CrossFit York represented 17 strong at the CerebRun Mid-Atlantic Challenge. This particular foot race took us through the hills and fields of Grimmel Farms in Delta, PA, where we were faced with walls to scale, dirt tunnels to crawl through, monkey bars to cross, spider walls to traverse, and additional mental challenges to overcome. Because CrossFit York members worked together as a team, we managed to complete all the physical and mental challenges we were faced with. Congratulate them if you see them! Ken Sweigart, Kelly Bolt, Devin Murray, Melony Grove, Courtney Manalli, Steve Kearns, Drew Pierce, Rusty Mirasol, Amy Miller, Cat Gonzalez, Julian Gonzalez, Joe Fullam, Tyler Fullam, Tracey DiCandeloro, Larry Schlaline, Madeline Yonker, and Joe Drahuz. Also, a shout out to Tony Euculano and Missy Force for manning the CFY tent. Put this race on your calendar for next year, CFYorkers. It is a blast!
