''Tabata Thrash-Up II.'' (01.20.2010)

Stable News
Opening the gym on Tuesday was like falling down a rabbit hole. Blinking several times and rubbing my eyes did nothing to diminish what I assumed was an early morning hallucination ... somehow our two lonely plyo-boxes had procreated overnight.
For CrossFitters to question such a miracle would have been blasphemy, instead our morning crew put these wooden wonders to use the best way possible; for time. The post-wod decision was unanimous, the boxes were absolutely not mirages. Everyone's legs agreed.
It took a bit of sleuthing but I finally learned who had gifted us these tools of our trade; Walter!
Walter trains with the dedicated athletes in our late afternoon Pain-Circus, and we all owe him a serious, ''Thank you''.
Expert craftsmanship skills are immediately evident, each box is heavy duty enough to easily withstand all the airborne hatred our athletes can produce. We can't thank Walter enough for the time and effort he spent helping take our facility to a new level.
Our family here at CrossFit New Hampshire has become something very special;
A unique community of athletes built around and drawn to distinct qualities of character rarely encountered among our peers in other venues of society.
