The video link is of my mentor, friend, and CrossFit great (James “OPT” Fitzgerald) back in the day when i could nearly keep up with him. He’s a bit short on some of the cleans (bar drops prior to full hip extension when standing up), but man…he’s a machine.

One of our athletes was recently diagnosed with MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a strain of staph that’s resistant to broad-spectrum antibiotics. It is unknown how or where he contracted it, but it is our responsibility to notify all our athletes. We have thoroughly cleaned and disinfected all CFHR equipment and mopped the floors. We mop the floors weekly, but we will now bleach/mop the floors nightly and ask your help in wiping down ALL equipment/bars after use. Please review the following link for symptoms & causes of MRSA and more data on MRSA. If you have or have had any of these symptoms in the past week or so, please see your doctor immediately.
