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

“There is no plan. There is no right and wrong. There is no need to worry about whether I’m on the right path. There is just life. And I kinda like it that way.” – Jen
I have recently taken an interest in reading people’s blogs. The above quote is how this blogger ended one of her pieces. I have a firm belief that we are shaped by our own experiences. While this author has a much different belief system then my own we are surprisingly very similar. While she would be quick to point out our differences, I like to think about what we have in common. I don’t take any offense to this quote. I don’t believe there is a set plan that each of us have to follow. I do believe we should strive to understand and respect everyone. How we decide to do this is our choice. We get to make our own choices and therefore there is no right or wrong. There may be consequences but again those are relative and are often positive. And I agree if we are respectful of others and treat people honestly then it doesn’t matter what path you are on for there are many paths to happiness. I like what life has to offer. Find your way to make the world better. Look to understand others. Look for ways to be awesome.
