Athletic- beat Trevor at everything!”

October Athlete of the Month- Quinn Wise


We are honored as coaches to acknowledge Quinn as our

 October Athlete of the month at BCF!

 
We are blown away at how Quinn can juggle the demands that life throws are her! Between raising 5 children, working, and running kids to and from sports, she still finds a way to make it into the box, but not even that, she goes the extra mile to get in aerobic capacity to improve her overall endurance! She has shown us what dedication looks like and we couldn’t be more proud to have her as a member at the box!


Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.

“The Wise family is a pretty large crew…...7 of us. My hubby James and I have been married for 22 years.  We both grew up in Washington state, spent a 10 year stint in Alaska right after we were married, and moved back to the Pacific Northwest 2016, settling in Forest Grove.  Our family has been blessed with 5 special and unique kids.  Our oldest daughter, Keegan (17), is a senior in high school and will be committing to Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington to play softball next fall.  My boys, Branden (16) and Aiden (14) are sophomore and freshman in high school.  Both are very active in sports including: soccer, basketball, and track.  Then there are the “Littles” - Peyton (12) and Nalin (10). The girls are in 7th and 4th grade.  Both spend time with their own interests in arts, crafts, and basketball as well as being a built in cheer section for their older siblings. 
So when we are not running around to activities or I’m squeezing in classes at BCF, I enjoy photography, cooking, and traveling.  International travel is my favorite and I have been lucky enough to travel though South East Asia including; South Korea, Thailand, China, and Hong Kong.” 

How did you hear about BCF and what made you want tod join?

“Trevor was my youngest son, Aiden’s, basketball coach so I definitely knew about CrossFit; however, I think I just blacked it out.  It wasn’t until my hubby and I were looking for ways to help our oldest daughter, Keegan, gain speed and strength for softball during the off season of her sophomore year did we look at BCF.  I only signed up because I had to drive her to classes and figured I might as well do something while I waited. I know not the best reason to start but it was all I needed to get hooked."

What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic? 


“My personal goals are pretty simple……happy and healthy.  I know a bit cliché but true.  I try to be a little better than the day before.  Doesn’t always work out that way but tomorrow is another day to try again.  That outlook certainly carries over into the CrossFit world.  I try to “be better” each time I come to BCF.  I am competitive by nature and CrossFit is a perfect outlet for that.

What is your favorite movement/
Non favorite movement?
“Well aren’t they all favorites? Maybe not.  I would have to say that rowing is my favorite overall CrossFit activity. Deadlifts would be my favorite bar movement. Non favorite activity would definitely be burpees! The most challenging bar movement for me has been that darn snatch!”



What is your proudest Crossfit moment?

“Wow, my proudest moment!  That’s a tough one since I try to set small goals for myself each time I step in the box and always feel a sense of pride in reaching those or even recognizing areas I can work on when I don’t quite meet my own expectations.”

What is 1 thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?
“If you didn’t know my travel schedule typically includes an annual vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida, then you might not know that I am a die hard Mickey Mouse fanatic. Well, that and the multitude of Disney art and collectibles at home might give it away.   We even have personalized license plates with a Disney theme.”



What is your biggest motivation in life?
“My family and faith are my biggest motivation.  I work to provide my family with the opportunities that I didn’t have and set the best example I can.  Hard work and belief are valuable in life.”

Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?


“I am glad every day that I decided to give CrossFit a try.  Between work and family I knew it would be hard to find times to squeeze in a class but my crew at home was supportive and helped me find the time I needed.  It has been and IS an amazing experience.  I have learned more about myself then I could have imagined.  Finding this outlet and community to cheer me on is priceless.  I can see my determination pay off on a daily basis.  It has definitely given me perspective and helped me be a better person no matter which hat I am wearing……..wife, mother, or CrossFit Quinn!!!

Wednesday 9-6-17 Classes

BCF,

We have checked out the box and we will have classes tomorrow morning. Ally will not be opening the doors or windows so you can expect it to be a little muggy. There will be no running outdoors. We will assess how things are progressing for the evening classes tomorrow but our hope is to have at least one evening class. We will send out evening updates tomorrow mid-day.

Class Cancellations for Wednesday and Thursday



BCF we used today as a test run to see what the temp would be like in the box. We did everything possible to keep it cool, and its 90 degrees at 6:30pm. Unfortunately, with it being hotter tomorrow we just can't keep you safe and have a 6:30pm class.

The only evening class we will offer on Wednesday and Thursday will be 7:30pm.

Thank you for your understanding!

Everyday Warrior 2017 Battle Series


Everyday Warrior has changed their battle series a bit this year, and therefore BCF will be running the competition different than in years past. Although, BCF's mission has NOT changed! WE ARE GOING TO RAISE MONEY FOR EVERYDAY WARRIOR and our GOAL is to beat last year's member total of 67! For those of you who are new, we have a reputation for being the smallest box with the greatest percentage of athlete competing. Generally, there are only 4 other boxes who exceed us and they are normally the larges boxes in the state! 

This year every class on Friday will be completing the workout for the week. Our hope is this will allow everyone to be involved and support this awesome cause. If you can't make it on Friday, no worries just contact a coach and we can make it happen for you! This battle series consists of 3 workouts, for $20! OR 3 workouts, and a shirt for $40! 

Trust me when I say this money directly goes to the people who need it most! We have seen it first hand when they presented a check to our close friends the Rizzo's at BCF! Everyday Warrior is truly an awesome causes.

July Hot Topic



July’s “Hot Topics”


                                        
SUMMER SPRUCE UP!

                Our annual ‘Spruce-Up’ is scheduled for Saturday, July 15th starting at 9am. Please note that there will be NO 9am class that morning.
                We are looking for around 15-20 people to come in and help out with what they can. There will be a sign-up sheet at the gym.
               
                P.S. For those who sign-up and come help out, there will be food and wine after we are all finished up!

“Many hands make for light work.” -Exline



 Water Prices 

                The price of water has increased, so we are now charging $1.00 for water purchased at the gym. We apologize for the inconvenience!
                With that said, please remember to be drinking plenty of water on a daily basis. Simply drinking a bunch of water before a workout will not do the trick. If you don’t know how much water to drink, try shooting for half of your bodyweight in ounces.

BCF NEEDS BIKES!!

After cheering from a distance for Ty and Brian's Excellent Adventure and with Regionals right around the corner, we decided there would never be a better time for BCF to fundraiser for some much needed Assault Bikes! Our dream is to purchase 6 bikes for the box. With this fundraiser our goals is to get at least 3!

Our staff will be pulling 2 sleds from Vernonia to BCF CrossFit, along the Banks-Vernonia Trail. The total distance is a little more than 24 miles. One sled will have 45 pounds for the ladies and one with 90 pounds for the boys. 

We would like to start the pledges at $1 per mile, but any denomination will be greatly appreciated! Please post your pledges below or at the box. We will be posting all pledges on the whiteboard at the box where we can all see our goal being reached! 

To celebrate the coaches suffering Grill Master Jaala will be cooking up his Famous chicken, along with some burgers, and hot dogs! Feel free to bring a side to share, and drinks if you want anything other then water. We should be arriving no later than 4pm on Saturday May 13th!  


BCF let the bidding begin....

Well Trevor made it to the airport but his Dad's flight was re-routed to Seattle. The airlines are certain they will be making it into Portland tonight but at this time (12:23am) we are unsure of his arrival. Trevor is looking for a hotel room but so far they are out of luck! At this point we just don't know when he'll be making it back home. But I do know Trevor will not be in any shape to coach by 9am. Matt is stranded up on his hill buried in snow. We are sorry guys but we must cancel the 9am class as well. Weather permitting we will be there for the evening classes! Enjoy the snow in the morning:)
