Thank You On Veterans’ Day

By November 11, 2016 No Comments

vet2Thank you to all our Veterans and those currently serving in the military, for all that you have done/do to keep us safe and which allows us to live our lives in freedom.


eagleTomorrow, Saturday 12 November between 8-11am, we will be hosting WOD for Warriors, a fundraiser event for our Veterans. Please come and workout, support, cheer, offer encouragement. It is FREE. You don’t have to be registered to participate. You don’t have to be a member of the gym. You don’t even have to do CrossFit. We have you covered. Donations will gladly be accepted and forwarded to Team Red, White & Blue. For more information, click here: T2CrossFit/WOD for Warriors


The WOD for Warriors event, just for this week, is our Free Community workout and our Members’ WOD. Come as usual but do this workout to honor our Veterans.

The first event/heat is at 9:00am. More information can be found from this link: 2nd Annual Gobbler Classic CrossFit Competition

Good luck to Whit, Janelle and Wade.


T2 Kids, Preteens & Teens: we are still in November so a friend is allowed to come for a session to see what it is all about.


I have mentioned it previously, but just in case you missed it, T2CrossFit’s Mid-Winter Party will be held Saturday 10 December.

With that in mind and to continue the good habits that were developed during the LuRong Championship Challenge, here is a link to some great recipes that are more inline with clean eating: Paleo Leap

Homemade cranberry sauce is one of my favourites. I have always made it from scratch (for Christmas while living in England and then Thanksgiving and Christmas since being here in the States). The recipe shown in the link is very similar to how I make mine. I usually add chopped up Granny Smith apple and sweeten the sauce with honey if necessary but only to the point of taking away some of the tartness. And you can buy bags of fresh cranberries, freeze them as is then cook straight from frozen. (Make sure to put a lid on the saucepan though, because sometimes the cranberries explode as they heat up.)


Have a great weekend. Hug someone. And smile.
