Onward We Tread

This pandemic has thrown everyone into a bizarro world.  There are real concerns on every side with understandable  anxiety and fear for our welfare – physically, mentally, financially and for our friends and families.  One thing weightlifting has taught me is that through stress, we can come out of a situation stronger.  We may take a beating for a time, but we usually  come out of it in a better place mentally and physically.

For a time, we were scared of losing the gym – our sanctuary.  Thankfully, we’re still there. In fact, after some tough losses, we’re starting to grow again.  There is real excitement and a great communal vibe in the air. With reduced capacity, masks, etc., we are not only managing, we are starting to thrive again and it feels great.  I am very excited about our new members and our vets that continue to put in the work and improve regularly.

Many pundits were writing off gyms after they were closed for so long and people set up home gyms to keep lifting.  The fact is a home gym is great, but it doesn’t give you the communal vibe that training together does.  We are communal by nature and do better when we’re around others who support us, push us to be better than we sometimes allow ourselves to be.  There is an undeniable energy that’s shared in a good gym.  It’s a great feeling to be training and coaching in a great gym.  We’re not only blessed with our team’s synergy, we also vibe off our extended family – Locomotive Fitness Co.  Come on down and join us. Be part of our renaissance.

Hudson Valley Open – Canceled

It pains us to announce that we have to cancel the Hudson Valley Open that was scheduled for 8/8/20.  We hope things get better soon.  As weightlifters, we are accustomed to the physical and mental challenges of our sport.  As we strengthen our minds and bodies in this environment, we also become stronger in handling many of life’s other curve balls.  Use that strength and a positive mindset to overcome this latest obstacle.

Thank you to all who have supported us.  We will be back hosting competitions! We hope that it can happen sooner than later.

Hudson Valley Open Postponed

We are postponing the Hudson Valley Open to August 8. With everything going the way it is, it’s important to think of the safety of everyone involved. Although we are hopeful that businesses can open soon, we also wanted to make sure that athletes have enough time to get back to training & be able to peak for this competition.
USAW is in the process of updating the competition calendar. The eventbrite registration page will also be updated with the new date. Current registrations will still be active.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We’ll get through this together and come back stronger than ever.

On January 18, 2020, we will be hosting the Hudson Valley Winter Classic at Locomotive Crossfit.

It turns out that this will be your last chance to qualify for the American Open 1 at the Arnold’s in Ohio, March 5-8, 2020.

It may be a little confusing using the new system, but the registrations are live!  Login to the new BARS system to register.  Search for the Hudson Valley Winter Classic and you can register through the link.  The new system is still a work in progress.  We can see your registrations, but it seems that individuals cannot see a list of current entries.  We will be posting a tentative start list a week before the meet. Register now and get in on the fun!
