February 2019 HOT TOPIC: New Policies for Kids Zone & Athlete's Area



It has been brought to several coaches attention recently, that frequently the Athlete’s Area seating at the box is littered with clothes, bags and children leaving nowhere to sit. Because many of our members enjoy hanging out before and/or after class, we are implementing a new policy for both the Athlete’s Area and Kids Zone.

If you are an athlete, meaning you are there to workout, you are welcome to sit in the Athlete’s Area. Children, regardless of age, must be in the Kids Zone at all times, unless they are participating in an upcoming class or just completed a class. Children who are able to do so themselves are allowed to leave the Kids Zone to use the restroom.

In an effort to keep the Athlete’s Area clutter-free and seating available for sitting, please place all bags, clothing, etc. in the cubbies next do the back door. There will be more cubbies and coat space coming soon.

Measles Prevention

As you've probably heard there is a measles outbreak occurring near us. To help protect our more vulnerable athletes, coaches and their babies, we would appreciate our members take the following into consideration:


  • Measles is airborne and lingers for up to two hours, so anyone showing signs of being sick should stay home.
  • Do not bring any unvaccinated children to the gym. This is to protect them and others. 
  • If you have any known exposures to the outbreak please notify us immediately so we can discuss the actions we must take to ensure no further exposure occurs.
  • If you are not sure if you’ve been exposed, click on the following links:
    Exposure Sites in Washington | Exposure Sites in Oregon
  • If you have been sick or think you might be catching something, please wipe down ALL equipment used including bamboo sticks, jump ropes, bars, med balls, dumbbells, kettlebells, handles and seats on the rowers, bikes, ski ergs, etc. Please wipe up your sweat!


Thank you so much for understanding and your compliance. It takes a village, and we want to keep our village strong and healthy!

“Measles symptoms begin with a mild fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes, followed by a rash.

If you or your child show signs of measles, call your health care provider before coming in so they can limit exposing anyone else in the waiting room.

If you have any further questions about the measles, call your local health department:

Clark County Public Health: (360) 397-8021
Clackamas County Public Health: (503) 655-8411
Multnomah County Public Health: (503) 988-3406
Washington County Public Health: (503) 846-3594
Oregon residents can visit the Oregon Health Authority website to find out if they're vaccinated.

"Measles can be so contagious that you can be in a room, and if you’re susceptible, two hours after someone with measles left, and still get the disease," said Dr. Alan Melnick, the director of public health for Clark County.”

NEW Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy

Well it looks like we might see some winter weather this week, FINALLY! With the new 5am class we are going to make some changes to our Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy. If possible, we will make any cancellations to the 5am and 6am classes the night prior. All other classes we will wait until the morning of and assess the situation. Our goal is to have cancellations out at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled class. We will post here on the website, Instagram, and Facebook. Please make sure you are checking these media outlets before attending class. 

With that said, the 5am class on Monday, February 4th is canceled. Our plan is to keep the 6am but please check our media after 5:30am. If Trevor gets up and it's not safe then we will cancel it by then. If you don't see any notifications by 5:30am then the 6am class is a go:)


February Athlete of the Month-Juan Enriquez

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


I grew up in the country/farm lands of eastern Washington State mainly around apple orchards. I eventually met my wife Alise, (some might know her as coach Alise) and we got married at the age of 18….no she wasn’t pregnant LOL. We were just “know it all teens” Kids didn’t come around until we were 21. We are a family of 6, oldest to youngest: Alise 33, Juan 24+9, Damon 13, Keenan 11, Niko 7 and Adalyn 3. This might seem like a big family in this area, but we are actually a small to average size family for back home. We really enjoy any trips that have warm weather, riding 4-wheelers and camping. We migrated to Oregon after I was hired on with Harder Mechanical as a Project Engineer for the Intel Ronler Acres site in Hillsboro. Time flies when your having fun because that was like almost 8 years ago. 


 How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join? How long have you been with BCF?


I heard of BCF through Alise. She had tried some CrossFit when visiting her sister in Utah and decided to start looking for a local box immediately. I joined basically at the same time she did but took about a year off when we moved from Cornelius to Yamhill. I have been a member at BCF for about 4 years now.


I still remember walking in and not even being able to do a pull up. Still can’t cardio, but I think I’m getting the hang of Power Lifting and Olympic Lifting. 

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


Goals would be to continue improving my overall health. Still not where I would like to be but always improving. 

What is your favorite movement? Non-favorite movement?


I would say my favorite movement is bench press because #chestdayisthebestday. My least favorite movement is OHS mainly due to poor shoulder mobility but even that has come a long way…. like OHS with only a PVC pipe.…yeah it was bad. 

What is 1 thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?


I always wanted to be a music producer. Make the beats and put it together for artists. That’s only but a dream now. 

What is your biggest motivation in life?


My biggest motivation in life is my family. Seeing our own kids do sports and have interest in working out give me more of a drive.
