Christmas Jorts and Ugly Sweater Party!
Friday, December 18th at 6:30 PM
Celebrate Christmas with us in the best way possible! Wear your tackiest Christmas sweaters, bust out those jorts, and come do a workout with us! We’ll be serving up ham, but make sure to bring a delicious holiday dish because after the workout we’ll dig in. A food sign-up sheet will be on the counter. We’ll have water bottles on hand, but feel free to bring anything else you’d like to drink. Come and celebrate Christmas with your CrossFit Impulse family!  In case you don’t think we are serious about the jorts and ugly sweaters just check out the photo from last year’s party!

The Big Nasti – January 30th

Big Nasti Update:

Your opportunity to sign up for the Big Nasti closes on Friday December 4th. After that, I’ll determine which five men and five women from the signup sheet comprise the team with the largest total. We will then notify team members the week of Monday December7th. Get your name on the signup sheet if you want to be on the team. Signing up doesn’t guarantee you’ll be lifting on the CrossFit Impulse team at the Big Nasti, but it says “I’m willing to lift and do my best for my team if needed.” That’s admirable in itself, so I hope you’ll all sign up. If you’d like more information about the Big Nasti, check out the below info.

CrossFit Protocol will be hosting a very unique event to kick off the 2016 competition calendar. It’s called the North Alabama Supertotal Team Invitational, or The Big NASTI. This event will combine Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting into one big team ladder event. Teams of five men and five women will try to total as much weight as possible in five different lifts: snatch, clean & jerk, bench press, deadlift, and squat. Only seven teams get to compete in this event and CrossFit Impulse is one of them! Each lift will be performed by a different athlete who cannot compete in any other lifts. You only get to do one lift–that’s why the team has five men and five women. You may be thinking, “I squat OK. But I don’t squat as much as Bob or Harry, so the team doesn’t need me.” But what if Bob and Harry are doing different lifts? Then that really does mean you should squat for us! So here’s what I need you to do; you’ll find a signup sheet on the counter at the gym. If you’re even remotely interested–if this sounds like fun–don’t worry about your capability, just sign up and let us worry about who will do each lift. The signup sheet includes space for you to write your PR in each lift. – Jeff
