I love Thanksgiving but, as a child, I never quite enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner.  Why?  Because the number one rule in the house on Thanksgiving Dinner was that we had to try some of everything on the table.

As a kid, I was a culinary specialist – I wanted to eat what I liked to eat.  That was it.  Not what was good for me or what my friends and family had thoughtfully prepared.  I wanted to eat what I liked.  Period.  Life is like food… 😉

If CrossFit teaches you anything, it teaches you the fallacy of the specialist – that being good at a thing – at the expense of everything else – is not “fit.”  We want to <alert – CrossFit Speak upcoming> “maximize work capacity across broad time and modal domains.”  That means we want to be good at everything.  We do that by utilizing “constantly varied, functional movements, performed at high intensity.”

Many of you have been with us for the better part of six months now and you have a sense of what CrossFit Merced brings to the dinner table.  So, today, we’re going to provide you a veritable cornucopia – we’re putting everything you’ve come to know and love on the table – of CrossFit goodness and we’ll leave it to you to see how many servings of  “Thanksgiving Dinner” – ten courses of CrossFit Merced’s Finest fixings – you can get down before time expires.

3…2…1…FEAST!
