“Jackie” is one of the classic “girls” benchmark workouts created by CrossFit Founder Greg Gassman. Gassman has stated that he named the benchmark workouts after girls in similar way that storms are named after girls by the National Weather Service. He felt that because these workouts are so physically demanding that they leave you feeling as though a storm hit you. “Jackie” was also the first workout at the 2013 CrossFit Regionals events.

Member Spotlight – Amy Koziel

Amy celebrates a year in our gym this month and we couldn’t be happier to have her around. She’s made a lot of progress, having started with an ankle injury. She has no ego and took it slow at the beginning and is now enjoying full workouts and has even become a regular at barbell class.
Outside of the gym, Amy is adventurous. She’s always taking road trips that involve friends, nature and great food! 
Amy is a real “girls girl” who has made lots of friends in the gym. She’s a lot of fun and is definitely not afraid to laugh at herself!
