Plyo: What’s going on right now?

Nutrition Lifestyle Challenge:

We are three weeks into the lifestyle challenge, with over 20 athletes participating in our education-based nutrition program. Our very own Lindsay, who is a Dietetic Technician, meets our teams once a week to talk about everything from nutrient-dense foods and water intake to properly fueling our bodies for optimum lifting and wodding. Right now, the challenge is adding 5 vegetable and 3 fruit servings a day.


Olympic Lifting Schedule: The barbell/Olympic lifting curriculum (EVO, Barbell Basics) is undergoing revision. All barbell work will now be scheduled during “Weightlifing” (WL) sessions, and all CFY members are eligible to attend. Programming for specific levels/abilities will be offered in all sessions (i.e. there will be programming for novice, EVO, and advanced EVO lifters during each session). Please check the Zen Planner calendar for times; note that the 10:30am barbell class has been removed and replaced with Monday-Friday 8:30 sessions.


Endurance: What’s coming up?

May 10: Cerebrun! CerebRun is York County’s TOUGHEST running event.  Designed over 6-8 miles of rugged Pennsylvania terrain, the CerebRun dares runners to tackle over 15 obstacles and solve over 8 mind-numbing mental challenges. Many of our coaches (even Rusty!) and athletes will be running this race; additionally, CrossFit York will have a booth at the race with challenges and contests. Registration is still open:, and CFY members get a $10 discount: CROSSFITYORK10.


May 17-18: East Coast Gold Classic USAW meet at York Barbell. Some of our own Whiterose Barbell Club members will be competing; for more information about spectating and supporting your fellow athlete, ask Rusty or Tony.


Memorial Day Weekend Three-Hero Series: Saturday, Sunday, and Monday will showcase hero WODs. Saturday will be a hero WOD drawn from a hopper; Sunday will be “Wrinkle,” named for Sgt. Chris Wrinkle, our very own Mike Wrinkle’s brother; and Monday will be “Hidalgo,” named after Lt. Daren Hidaglo from Dallastown. All WODs will be at 10am, and Monday’s WOD will be followed by a CFY-style grilling session, so bring snacks and drinks and be ready to sit in the sun with us.


Heavy: CrossFit York athletes being awesome!

The next time you see Bob Inners, give him a fist bump. On Sunday, April 27, he competed in the Second Annual Rocket Triathlon in Spring Grove.  He not only accomplished his goals of competing and finishing, which he had posted on our white board, he also finished third overall and first in the over-40 division.  He attributes his success to his training here at CrossFit York.


Jackie Fullam, one of CrossFit York’s very first athetes, will spend her Mother’s Day weekend earning her CrossFit Level 1 coaching certification at CrossFit King of Prussia. As one of CFY’s fastest and strongest women, the coaching staff is eager to welcome her on as a trainer.
