We are now in the fourth week of the CrossFit open! This Friday, March 21st, we will be doing the 14.4 workout at Jefferson City CrossFit.

Last Friday night, CrossFit Fringe hosted their Friday Night Lights for a fundraiser to honor Lt. Bruce Britt of Columbia Fire Department. Several of our members went to participate with them and complete their third CF Open workout. CrossFit Fringe’s hospitality is always elite, and we are thankful once again for CrossFit community at its finest.

14.4 will be announced this Thursday at games.crossfit.com at 7pm. What will they throw at us this week? Wallballs and Toes 2 Bar. Clean and Jerks with muscle ups! Come and participate, feel the energy, and have some fun like last Friday night. And if you don’t wish to participate, please come and watch. Bring your family, bring your friends! We will be doing the first WOD for people starting at our regular time at 5pm.  And we will be hosting our friends from CrossFit Fringe to come and join in on the fun.

All of our members and CF Fringe community, please EMAIL JeffersonCityCrossFit@gmail.com if you plan to participate and in your email, let us know how early you may arrive and if you need to be judged as a registered CF Open athlete. We will most likely have to do several heats.

We have been fortunate enough to do this workout for everyone at our gym on Fridays. Last Friday at CrossFit Fringe, I witnessed a beautiful expecting mother do 14.3 at her capacity. Was she able to do the prescribed RX deadlifts that CF HQ had thrown out there? Maybe not, but faced the challenge, finished, and accomplished her goals. Has there been moments, you started and weren’t sure you could finish, get that one more rep? And then you did. We hope you are finding out some of your weaknesses and have made goals to turn them in to strengths. Have they pulled you out of your comfort zone? Remember, there is no finish line, you don’t ever have to settle for your fitness level. Every person starts somewhere, and we are the ‘master of our fates, we are the captain of our souls.’


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
