Come hang out with your fellow Verve and CrossFit Rosslyn members for a Potluck! We’ll also be playing a movie in our CrossFit box. The movie is TBD, but trust us; it’s going to be a good one!

Bring in your favorite dish to share and BYOB!

For the movie, you are more than welcome to bring in your own chair, bean bag seat, etc, to make yourself comfy cozy in our box!

Verve Health & Fitness has recently hired a new trainer to fill out our already strong roster of personal trainers. We want to welcome Jackie O’Neill, NASM-CPT.

Jackie has been personal trainer since 2012, since she was an undergraduate in Kinesiology at the University of Illinois. She joins Verve while currently studying for her doctorate in Physical Therapy at George Washington University.

“My goal was always to go to Physical Therapy school, but I didn't want to wait until graduation to begin working with people on overcoming barriers.” Jackie remarked in a recent interview for this post. “[While at undergrad] I became certified as a personal trainer and found that I didn't want to give it up, even after starting graduate school.”

“I love working with clients that are open-minded and ambitious about achieving their fitness goals,” she added. “I love being a source of motivation for people when they need it.”

A multi-sport competitive athlete growing, she has become an avid cyclist, recently completing an 800-mile bike tour of the Northeastern United States. “I love getting out on my bike whenever I can—especially on a nice, sunny day—and just making up a route as I go until I decide it's time to turn around and go back.”

Jackie plans on using this experience at Verve to grow as a trainer and learn new styles of personal training. “The trainers at Verve are so knowledgeable, experienced and friendly that I am really looking forward to learning a lot from them. I's always fun to check out what each other is doing and find ways to incorporate something that you like or find interesting into your own style.”

If you see Jackie in the hall or working with a client in the gym, be sure to give her a quick “hello!” and welcome her to Verve.

New Gear for the Holidays
 
Time to update your Christmas list …
 
Our new hoodies are in and sport both the CrossFit Rosslyn and Verve Health & Fitness logos! They are made from cozy eco-fleece fabric which makes them perfect for layering up on the chilliest of days and are full-zip, which makes them easy to shed after your warm-up. Sizes available: XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL. $47
 
Worn through your favorite WOD shirt? Well, you’re in luck because the gray CrossFit Rosslyn t-shirts are in! These shirts are super-soft but super-durable, with the CF Rosslyn logo down the front and a small “CFR” on the sleeve. Sizes available: S, M, L, XL, and XXL. $19.
Toys for Tots
 
We've seen you do the heavy lifting in the box, but can you do some more heavy lifting into this box?
 
We’re talking about the Toys for Tots box at the front desk of Verve/CFR. Now until December 15th, we are collecting toys to be distributed to needy families through the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program
 
Any toy you can bring in, from board games to teddy bears to Lego sets, will help make a difference. Big or small, all of your contributions will go towards this worthy cause. *Toys must be new and unwrapped.* 

Don’t forget to RSVP by Thursday, November 6th to attend a bowling party with us! Get to know your fellow Verve and CrossFit Rosslyn members while showing off your bowling skills at Pinstripes in Georgetown.

CrossFit Rosslyn will only be holding a 12Noon class for Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.  All other classes for the day are cancelled.

There will be a Hero WOD scheduled for the class.

Some site changes this week….

  1. Whiteboard photos. Starting this week, we’ll be moving the WOD Results to the primary WOD page.  The reasons are because they were starting to overwhelm the design of the site, weren’t providing any additional benefit by being posted in a different place as the workout itself and made it more difficult in the end to find the workout and the results.You’ll start seeing some of the older posts disappear as I migrate the whiteboard photos to the original posting.
  2. Navigation. “Photos & WOD Results” is now just “Photos.” The WOD Results group will now live under the WOD. The photos of the big scoreboard will remain as a separate group underneath the WOD.

That’s it.  Good luck with the 13.3 workout, everyone.
