I read this in The Morning Chalk Up this morning. CrossFit won’t cure cancer but a physical focus and the determination to move forward can only help…. ‘WHAT’S IT LIKE TO CROSSFIT WHILE BATTLING CANCER? THE STORY It was August 2015, seven weeks after joining CrossFit Paramus, and David Wilcomes was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. His membership was a Father’s Day gift from his daughter. “She had been after me to join for a while but I was always concerned that I could not do it- sometimes we learn from our children.” THE TREATMENTS Even though 66-years old and a newcomer to CrossFit, David chose treatment over surgery partially to continue with CrossFit. So David headed to radiation treatment at 8:00 AM. And by 9:00 AM, he was at CrossFit Paramus for the morning class, 2-3 days a week. “I felt it was important to have as much normalcy in my life as possible by continuing to exercise,” he said. “IF I COULD DO IT, ANYONE COULD DO IT” The only person at the box who knew of David’s cancer was his coach, Joe Ghaznavi. “Joe was always ‘keeping an eye on me’ and made sure I was doing okay.” “I was determined to complete the workouts and not let the treatments be an excuse,” David admits. Aside from just “maintaining” his level of fitness, his numbers continued improving, especially in the back squat and deadlift. His mobility increased, even to the point where the needs for shoulder and knee replacements were postponed. THE HIGHLIGHTS Whether by design or providence, David’s radiation treatment wrapped up right before the 2016 CrossFit Open kicked off, and he completed his first CrossFit Open. “Originally I did not tell anyone about the cancer, except Joe…The response of the people at the gym was genuine and heartwarming and Guerrilla Fitness Paramus will always be special to me.”’

Doors will open at 5pm! Come in and mobilize, stretch and start getting warm. Heats will begin at 6pm. We need judges! This is a great WOD that should allow us to run quite a few people at a time! But that requires judges too. We will review standards at 5:45pm!!!!
UPDATE! If you're coming to Friday Night Lights, we have a location change: we'll be partnering up and doing 17.1 at CrossFit Undeniable. Our heat starts around 6 pm so it's probably a good idea to get there by 5:30....you know, so you can get PUMPED UP and ready to go! And if you don't need judged? 17.1 is still on the schedule for the 4:30 and 5:30 classes tonight so feel free to come to BHCF like usual. Sorry for the last-minute change!

Bad lifts happen. For some, it happens a lot. Heck in my earlier days of lifting, my coach would tell me at the end that he wouldn’t expect me to even make all of my training lifts in a given workout (if you’ve ever done heavy sets of waves, you know what I’m talking about). The truth of the matter is not whether or not all your lifts are perfect, but rather how you respond to them that matter. ⠀ To continue reading, visit http://teamsoultraining.com/seeing-the-forest-from-the-trees/ ⠀ ⠀ About the Author: With his first contest in 2002, Tony “Tuba” Blanksteen has been an active member of the weightlifting community for fourteen years.
