Carli Marie Nohea Pecoraro has arrived! Carli was born on November 14th, weighing 7 lbs, 1 oz and measured 20 inches long. Kellie worked out up until a week before the birth. She said "the labor was fast (and painful!) but it was entirely worth it!!"
Welcome Carli!

The Fab Fivers!

Monday, November 23, 2009

In the Fall of 2004 we had the great fortune of these fabulous people below walking in our door and start training with us at CrossFit North. We are so grateful to have them all around five years later. Thank you all for your many contributions, support and friendship over these last five years!

Fran's last day at CrossFit Seattle is November 19th. We will be having a goodbye party for her at 3:00pm that day so please join us if you can.

Fran started working out with us at CrossFit North in the Fall of 2004. She started assisting Dave with our Team Survivor class in 2006 (I believe) and officially started as a trainer at CrossFit Seattle in April 2008.

Fran has started her own CrossFit affiliate, CrossFit 206 in the Central District Area. We wish her and Tom the very best and thank them for all their support over the last 5 years.

Here are some old school pics of Fran!

Watch Holly, Tracy and John CYCLOCROSS this weekend!

Wednesday, November 11, 2009


Go check out Holly Walker Davis, Tracy Erbeck and John Herzog, Cyclocross this Sunday at Woodland Park. Click here for heat times and info.

Holly, Tracy and John are great examples of athletes using CrossFit to help kick ass in their sport. There are rumors that Holly is going to clean up so go cheer her on.

Cyclocross is a very spectator friendly and fun to watch. These guys go hard and get dirty! In case you don't know what Cyclocross is, read below.

What is Cyclocross?
Cyclocross is a bicycle-related sport combining the fitness of road riding, the technical bike handling skills of mountain biking, and the finesse of running all in a 45-60 minute event. Typically, cyclocross-specific bikes are used (looking like a road bike, but with a wider, knobby tire, and good mud clearance at the brakes). Mountain bikes can be used, too.

Strategy: Go fast and make it last. Seriously. You can’t possibly sprint for a 45 minute race. You might try, though. The key is fast-paced sustainable action. Sometimes it’s faster to run sections. Sometimes, staying on the bike is the only option. Coast less often. Corner smartly. Own your place in the race.
