Re: Calling all fitness enthusiast! Crossfit Zuerich 24-in-24 Charity Event

Thanks for the info on the cooking class - It sounds like a lot of fun too!

For anyone out there who might be "on the fence" about joining one of the open workouts, I say "Just Do It" They have been planned to be a lot of fun, and are scaled for all levels, so you can do it even if you've never done a crossfit-style workout before.

So hope to see you there at one of the times below!:

The following workout times will be fully OPEN to anyone who would like to join and donate a minimum 24 CHF per workout ((first, middle and last):
- 12:00 Saturday (Dec 3, 2011),
- 0:00 Sunday (Dec 4, 2001 Midnight), and
- 11:00 Sunday (Dec 4, 2011).

This event really is awesome, and so is CrossFit.

I am bummed to be missing it this year, as last year was incredibly inspiring, and I still owe CrossFit big time for losing a shit load of weight, and keeping it off.

Good luck to everyone taking part, I will be thinking of you.

Re: Calling all fitness enthusiast! Crossfit Zuerich 24-in-24 Charity Event

Just a quick bump as this event is tomorrow.... (and the cooking class is tonite!)

CrossFit Zürich really has a great "community" feeling with lots of members coming from other countries.... There will be lots of people there that might not know other people, so you would surely not be the only one in that situation - Just introduce yourself and tell them you heard about it on the EF

Hope to see you there!
