Thanksgiving morning team/family workout at the Youth Athletic Park on Olympiad Road next to Lake Mission Viejo. We did this last year and had about 150 participants. An event that was one of the Highlights of Mission CrossFit. We hope that if you are in town that you will plan to join us again. It will be the same format of a workout scavenger hunt. It is designed for the whole family. Mark it on your calendar and plan to be there. We will add a few more stations to make it even more challenging for those who need to burn off extra calories in anticipation of Thanksgiving dinner.
Not to overlook Thanksgiving but with the busy Holiday Season we thought it best to announce or annual Mission CrossFit Holiday Party. This party will be held on Friday December 6th at 6 PM. Please plan to attend.
Kaizen Youth Club
Kaizen Youth Club is a California non-profit 501(c)(3) and part of Steve’s Club National Program designed to serve At Risk Youth in our community. We have lots of opportunity to do good right here in our own town. This is the third school year I have had students from the Silverado Continuation High School at the other end of Via Fabricante. The first year I had four consistent students participate in the classes. The second year we started our with eight students and had 4 the remained consistent through the year. So far this year we have 20 students enrolled in our program and it is growing every week. Average attendance has been at 90%. 14 of the students have not missed a class since they started. I am seeking monetary donations to help with the incentive program for the kids. Example: If they attend 6 consecutive classes then they receive a Mission CrossFit T-Shirt. Each visit is worth a certain amount of points that they can use towards other CrossFit or Athletic gear. We are seeking one time donations or monthly contributions. I have estimated that it will cost approximately $45/ month for each student. This price is what it would cost if the student earns all the incentives which are listed below. To do this would take 3 months without missing a single class.
$10 = T-shirt
$20 = Shorts
$30 = Sweatshirt
$75 = Reebok CrossFit Shoes

We had a great turnout at Mission CrossFit’s first ever Member Recognition Night. We awarded members who have completed (and Checked in) at least 100 workouts. We also got to recognize those who have completed 250 or more workouts. Mission CrossFit just celebrated it’s fourth anniversary of being a CrossFit affiliate. We have come a long way from our garage gym days. Sarah and I feel tremendously blessed to have such a strong Mission CrossFit family. It is very humbling for us to have so many turn out on a Friday night. We missed those that could not make it. We are grateful for those who have helped with various construction projects within the gym including the fans, vents, showers, equipment racks, wall mounted pull up rack, and newly installed merchandise display. All of you have been an integral part in building and realizing our dream of making people better. Thanks for your hard work and compassion towards one another.
