12. Free write: 

I’d like to thank all of the women in our community, they have been really supportive and encouraging over the past year. Although I haven’t been to 9 am in months I will always be a 9amer at heart.


The Judge’s Course is always interesting to take. You learn a huge amount about the movements you do in workout. And it is available for everyone to take. Take the Judge’s Course; it’s another way to be involved in The Open. And it makes you really aware of the standards required for workouts. When coach shouts no-rep, you will understand why. No-one likes a no-rep.

For then next 5 weeks beginning 11th October, come and visit T2 community on Friday evenings, FNL. It’s loud and full of energy and is amazingly exciting. The first Open workout will be announced October 10th 2019 : Registration is Open 

After registering for The Open, make sure you sign up for the T2 in-house team Open on the sheet. Ask if in doubt. Last day to sign up for the in-house is tomorrow (Friday).


If you would like to meet Jen, the other 9amers and the rest of the amazing T2 members, please come and visit. No obligation but a suggestion 😊; bring your workout clothes just in case you feel inclined.

Fresh Summer Salads : 

I think the Summer Salads are finished. But watch this space for the next delightful dish to be offered by Hazelnut Catering.


This week’s Food: Coconut Lime Poached Salmon courtesy of CrossFit.

This week’s Trivia: Did you know that … ” “Rowing works nine major muscle groups: quads, hamstrings, glutes, lats, core, shoulders, triceps, back and biceps. In addition rowing is an amazing cardio workout.” On top of that, the basics of rowing can be learned in one short session.” (Breaking Muscle: Everybody Hates the Ergometer by Becca Borawski Jenkins)

Will we see you at Row Zone! on Sunday?

Have a wonderful weekend. Go Steelers.
